ISdN - Anubis and Bastet 2 Picture

I Sovrani del Nulla - The Lords of Nothing

Dei, Eroi, Santi. Erano i signori del mondo, salvatori dell'umanità, patroni e custodi, esempi di virtù. Ma ora gli uomini li hanno dimenticati, hanno abbandonato i propri miti, spento le sacre aureole, relegato il divino ai margini di una società pragmatica e materialista prossima al deperimento.
L'umanità ha rinunciato all'eternità in favore di una labile contingenza.

Gods, Heroes, Saints. They used to be the Lords of the world, mankind's Saviors, patrons and guardians, pure examples of virtue. But now people have forgotten them, they've left myths behind, put off sacred halos, and relegated the numinous at the edge of a pragmatic and materialistic society on the way of perishment.
Humanity gave up eternity in favor of fleeting contingency

Character: Anubis is the jackal-headed god associated with mummification and the afterlife in Egyptian mythology. Anubis is the "Keeper of Divine Justice", and was given by the gods the role of sovereignty of souls. Deciding the weight of "truth" by weighing the Heart against Ma'at, who was often depicted as an ostrich feather, Anubis dictated the fate of souls. In this manner, he was a Lord of the Underworld.
Bastet is a cat-goddess, protector of pharaon, women, mothers and obviously cats. Since Bastet literally meant, of the ointment jar, her name was related with the lavish jars in which Egyptians stored their perfume. Bast thus gradually became regarded as the goddess of perfumes, earning the title, perfumed protector. In connection with this, when Anubis became the god of embalming, Bast, as goddess of ointment, came to be regarded as his wife.
