Khnum's the master craftsman of ancient Egypt. With his amazing skills at pottery that allowed him to create humankind from clay, the entire human race loves him. He's an unusual fellow—he's got a ram's head, after all—but he's a loving and loyal member of the Egyptian pantheon. As a builder and a water god, he can be found all over Egypt, hanging out with everyone from pyramid builders to sailors.
K-Town, Lord of the Cataract
I have houses (temples) across Egypt. My main mansions are in Esna and Aswan.
Potter, shaper of mankind, god of water and the inundation
I took pottery classes with the gods.
I support Ra as king of the gods.
I've been a loner from birth, so I never knew my parents.
Ditto for siblings.
Sometimes, people say the sun god Ra is my son with my wife Neith, but how could one goddess have given birth to the entire sun?
The pyramid-builders—we all like building stuff.
The sun dries all the water up—it sucks.
My wife depends on where I'm worshipped. At Esna, my boo is Neith; elsewhere, my spouse is Heqat. At Aswan, I'm associated with two lovely ladies—Satis and Anukis.
Goddesses. All of them.
