MONTU — Character Profile & Artwork

M O N T U

The God of Warfare and Victory

The ace athlete Montu has earned high win-streaks in battle, gaining fame and popularity among his devotees. This fuels his confident and boastful attitude, but he has his moments; he’ll humble himself around those who earn his respect, or who can tolerate his sky-high ego. He is referred to as Lord Montu, and also serves as a solar deity.
