Ra's story
When Ra ruled the earth there was a golden age where man and god lived together, but as Ra grew old his subjects plotted against him.So he had to call on Sekhmet to calm to rebellion.
Isis wanted to be the most powerful goddess, so one day when old Ra was walking a serpent (made by Isis) bit him and he became ill. Isis offered to heal him but only if he gave her his secret name. Ra resisted for a while until the poison hurt him too much that he gave Isis his secret name. The old and tired God went up to heaven and went onto Nut who was in the shape of a cow.
The golden lotus
Sekhmet is the lion goddess of war. She was Ra's bloodthirsty servent who put a stop to Rebellion's.
Sekhmet's story:
When Ra was old, he needed Sekhmet to calm the rebellion. She was so blood thirsty while doing sp that Ra was appalled. He had 7,000 jugs of magical beer and juice poured on the ground. Sekhmet thinking it was humane blood guzzled it up and became so drunk that she fell asleep before she could destroy the human race.
Geb was the earth and Nut his wife was the sky. Ra had learned of a prophecy that one of Geb and Nut's children would overthrow him. Ra tried to keep them apart so he had Shu god of the wind stand between them so they couldn't make contact with each other.Still Geb and Nut had Four kids.
Osiris original was a nature god. He brought civilization to the Egyptian people , he taught them about agriculture, he made towns and laws, he made temples and instituted ceremonial worship of the gods. Osiris made his brother Set very jealous and angry when he became a very important god.Set became so jealous that he murdered his brother Osiris and cut Osiris's body into small little pieces and scattered them across Egypt.Iisi collected the pieces and made Osiris into the first mummy. Osiris choose to stay and rule the underworld. Osiris is one of Geb and Nuts kids.
Set (Seth)
Set was the God of Evil and thieves.Set was seen as anything that threatened Egypt's harmony. His brother is Osiris. As Osiris became a more important God, Set was seen as his opponent. Set eventually killed and chopped up Osiris in their struggle. Set spread the pieces of Osiris corpse all around Egypt.

Nephthys was a protective goddess like Isis, but she protected the dead. Geb and Nut were her father and mother, Osiris, Set and Isis were her brothers and sister. She was married to Set and she was the mother of Anubis god of the dead. She is often seen on coffins to protect the dead inside. After Set killed Osiris She helped Isis collect the peices of the body and put them back together.

Anubis was the god of embalming and the dead. He is the son of Set and Nephthys. He also helped Isis embalm Osiris mummy.
