One thousand years ago, the Pharaoh and his Queen were expecting their first child. Without her husband’s knowledge, Queen Ashti would leave her chamber in the dead of night and ride out to the oasis called Vara, where she would draw her own blood as a sacrifice to the semi-gods. The Almighty was not pleased with her immorality. In fear of their own lives, two semi-gods whom unwillingly received most of the cries of the Queen, Anubis and Horus, begged God to be discounted for the Queen’s sins.
When the appointed time came for the Queen to bring her child into the world, she was pleased to find that two daughters had been sustained in her womb; but her gladness was soon cut short. The Almighty sent the semi-gods to kill the infant girls for their mother’s sin. When the Queen was confronted by them, she begged forgiveness and God, in His mercy, took pity on her. He called to the semi-gods and ordered a halt in His plan. He had a new one for the future. The girls were not to be killed but were to be given to Anubis and Horus as a punishment for the Queen’s sin and a gift for the their resistance to selfishly accept sacrifices for themselves.
Dysis, the first born, would be taken by Horus. Namara, the second, was taken by Anubis. The two would be placed as Guardians of Day and Night, Life and Death and among other titles, a warning to the future rulers of Egypt not to fall into the worship of semi-gods. But worship was not the only sin among men, and soon, the lust for power would endanger the lives of the girls’ and their caretakers, releasing the wrath of the semi-gods on the earth and risking that of the Almighty.
