Harmachis - Taking on the form of a sphinx-like creature, this Ancient Egyptian deity is thought to be an aspect of Horus, and to represent the dawn and the rising of the Sun, as well as being capable of bestowing supernatural wisdom on human devotees. According to a legend, a future pharaoh of Egypt happened upon the god while it slept, and was given a prophetic vision of his rule that would come to fruition as long as he made a temple of the deity. This temple became the Sphinx of Giza.

"Goddess Nut" Nut (Nuit, Nwt) was the personification of the sky and the heavens. She was the daughter Shu and Tefnut and the granddaughter of the creator god (Atum orRa). Her husband/brother was Geb the earth god. However, she could also be said to be the mother of Ra. The Coffin Texts refer to her as "she of the braided hair who bore the gods".

Salawa (Beast)(Small) – All Salawa serve the Dark God of beasts and darkness called Set. It is believed that Set created the Salawa himself as they kinda resemble him in some ways. Salawa are very sneaky and cowardly creatures that mostly trick other evil creatures into doing their work for them, when their evil schemes fail they just search for new minions and try so again. Their bites cause a magical variant of rabies. (Egyptian)
