SERQET — Character Profile & Artwork

S E R Q E T

The Goddess of Medicine, and all manner of Poisons and Venom

Lady Serqet is the daughter of Ra. Her sisters include Sekhmet, Mafdet, Hathor, and Bastet.

Serqet’s keen knowledge with medicines and poisons is highly-valued, but also makes her a potentially dangerous goddess to cross. Despite her morbid teasing and playfulness, she’s ‘mostly harmless’ to those who amuse her, and can be a reliable ally to the few who win her favor.
