Mythology[]

A mysterious and often obscure deity, Sobek is a son of the trickster god Set and the creation goddess Neith. This led to a multidimensional personality in Egyptian cult and belief systems; while Sobek was most closely associated with monarchical power and fierce defense against the dangers of the world, he also had a darker side. He was known for ferocious aggression, thievery, lechery, and violence. In a way, this collection of qualities can cause Sobek to be seen as a personification of the survival instinct; in another, it can be seen as reflective of the Nile crocodile, a fierce and territorial species that ancient Egyptians regarded with both fear and respect. After all, this species was immeasurably old even when Egyptian civilization was quite young. Sobek's main cult center was at Faiyum, which the Greeks knew as Crocodilopolis.
