Concept: Goddess Sekhmet Picture

In Ancient Egypt mythology, Sekhmet was a major solar deity that encompassed not only the medical field, but the battlefield as well. (And fire...And vengeance...) She was to be feared as her bloodlust is only quelled by her love of alcohol; she went on a rampage to destroy all who opposed Ra, her father (and then just went after humanity in general). Only Ra was able to stop her slaughter by dyeing beer to look like blood.

Stern, strict, and nothing short of a temper, Sekhmet is called upon only in extreme circumstances. One wrong word or negative set of body languages is enough to set her in a foul mood; absolute destruction is all but a certainty if pushed into the red.

She also likes red. One wonders why...
