    Pantha last edited by MissFame on 06/27/18 10:59PM View full history


    Her name was once Sekhmet, and she was high priestess to Ra and worshiped as minor deity. Ra had given her ability to change into a panther. When famine and drought wrecked the land, she killed many people: women, men and children alike. She told herself that it was in the name of Ra, but bloodlust got a hold of her and she even killed and devoured her own son. Then Ra condemned her to walk the world forever, never to know home or peace.
