Album cover for A Merging to the Boundless: Void of Voyce by Stargazer
(Was used without credit for over a year)
(Was used in a state where it was almost impossible to find the original artist)
(People only know this now because the original poster of that image came out and informed others)

"Elon Musk said that the need to credit artists is destroying the medium, the problem is that Elon Musk was a stupid liar."

This page in question has one or more images that aren't credited properly. Whether this be because the artist can't be found or the one who added the image was lazy, this needs to be fixed.

Anger gave me the strength to defeat Set and take the throne for myself. You must do the same.
Horus

Horus, also known as Horus the Younger, is the Egyptian god of the sky, war, hunting, and kingship, as well as the king of the Egyptian gods.

Overview

Horus is the son of Osiris and Isis and is the husband of Hathor and Serket, and is the father of Ihy - the god of music. He seeks revenge for Osiris' death at the hands of the treacherous Set. It is said that he and Set have a never-ending battle, and when the sun rises, Horus begins to triumph, but when the sun sets, Set gains the upper hand.

Appearance

Horus is often depicted as a man with the head of a falcon, most likely a lanner or peregrine falcon.

One of his most distinguishing features are his different colored eyes (both of which are outlined with kohl), the right one being gold and the left being silver. This is the result in having one of them stabbed out by Set; the eye was replaced by Thoth, who restored it using moonlight, and thus created the silver Eye of Horus.

He appeared as a youth wearing a lock of hair (a sign of youth) on the right of his head while sucking his finger. In addition, he usually wears the united crowns of Egypt, the crown of Upper Egypt and the crown of Lower Egypt. In this form, he is a personification of the rising son, representing its earliest light.

History

Horus' birth

After Isis had retrieved all the dismembered body parts of her murdered husband Osiris, Set discovered about his sister's plan to resurrect him and created a storm that scattered his body parts across the desert. Luckily, with the assistance of Anubis and Nephthys, she was able to easily retrieve most of the scattered parts, all except his penis which was thrown into the Nile and was eaten by a catfist.

Because of this, Isis created a wooden penis to replace the real one in order to perform the ressurection ritual. The ritual worked, but not as successful as Isis would have wanted, as due to him staying far too long in the underworld, as well as him missing a crucial body part, he was only able to be resurrected for a single day.

They spent the day together and conceived a child before Osiris disappeared into the Duat once more, before Isis was captured by Set, her husband's murderer. With the assistance of Nephthys, she was able to escape and fled to the Nile Delta marshlands to hide from her pursuers. There, she would give birth to a divine son named Horus. Horus was sent to train with Her-ur, who would eventually die trying to protect him from Sets followers.

Conflict between Horus and Set

When he became older, Horus was told by his mother, Isis, to protect the people of Egypt from Set, the god of the desert, who had killed Horus' father, Osiris. Horus had many battles with Set, not only to avenge his father, but to choose the rightful ruler of Egypt. In these battles, Horus came to be associated with Lower Egypt, and became its patron.

The other gods were getting tired from over eighty years of fighting and challenges. Horus and Set challenged each other to a boat race, where they each raced in a boat made of stone. Horus and Set agreed, and the race started. But Horus had an edge: his boat was made of wood painted to resemble stone, rather than true stone. Set's boat, being made of heavy stone, sank, but Horus' did not. Horus then won the race, and Set stepped down and officially gave Horus the throne of Egypt.

Myths and Legends

The Pharaoh of Egypt was also thought to be the human personification of Horus or his son, and was responsible for maintaining Ma'at, or balance, in Egypt. When the pharaoh died, he became the embodiment of Osiris.
