Bastet is the Ancient Osirian goddess of cats, desire, sensuality, and secrets. She protects against epidemics, evil, and snakes. She is usually relaxed and indolent, but Bastet's anger can be terrible.
Bastet is a beautiful cat-headed woman carrying a sistrum and an aegis shield decorate with the head of a lion.
Bastet is the daughter of Ra and sister of Hathor, Sekhmet, and Maat. She has often faced off against Apep on her father's behalf. Bastet has no mate, but her affairs with numerous other deities are well-documented.
Church of Bastet
The worship of Bastet is particularly popular among women, and most of her clergys are female. They usually keep cats as pets, and when these cats die, they are mummified and buried with their owners. Bastet's temples host elaborate, decadent festivals, and are home to sacred prostitutes of both sexes. Since the restoration of native Osirian rule in 4609 AR, interest in the worship of Bastet has been rekindled in that nation.
