Powers and Abilities
Shapash announces that El supports Yam. By delivering her verdict in the final struggle of Hadad with Mot, she reveals her role as judge among the gods, and by her judgement against Mot, as saviour of humankind, two aspects that conform with what is known of Shamash's function. After Hadad is killed, she helps Anat bury and mourn him, and then stops shining. Following El's dream about the resurrection of Hadad, El asks Anat to persuade Shapash to shine again, which she agrees to, but declares that she will continue to search for him. In the battle between Hadad and Mot, she threatens Mot that El will intervene in Hadad's favour, a threat which ends the battle.
