Set is portrayed as the usurper that killed and mutilated his own brother Osiris. He is one of the Egyptian Nine Ennead. A god of the desert, storms, disorder, violence and foreigners in ancient Egyptian religion. Set has a positive role where he is employed by Ra on his solar boat to repel the serpent of Chaos Apep. Set had a vital role as a reconciled combatant. He was lord of the red (desert) land where he was the balance to Horus' role as lord of the black (soil) land. Set's siblings are Osiris, Isis, and Nephthys. He married Nephthys and fathered Anubis; and in some accounts he had relationships with other goddesses
