This god, Ra, was the one to bring about the beginning and the end respectively. He would give and he would take--whatever he saw fit before him, he would give to the people of the land, and whatever he thought they didn't deserve, he would rip from their hands.
This god, Ra, held the power of the sun at his fingertips. The other gods before him trembled upon his presence and whenever Ra demanded something, the other gods did it.
Until one day, one god rebelled.
One god said no.
One god decided to take over the throne.
This wasn't news to Ra, for Ra was all-seeing and all-powerful.
So what Ra did was have a talk with Time, and made a deal.
Time offered a simple solution to Ra. Time would shift the skies and heavens into a more favorable position.
Time would create a moment that would be a catalyst for the future complications that would arrive in the rebellious god's prominent fall from power.
Time created an equal. A darker version of Osiris, and thus, Osiris would be challenged.
Time never got it wrong.
So Ra watched from the heavens as everything occurred.
Ra watched the events unfold, and did nothing.
Ra saw Osiris get murdered at the hands of Set, tricked by his brother, and dethroned.
Ra then came to the realization that Time had only replaced one abomination with another.
And knew that soon, he too, would have to face against Set.
...soon, there would come the plagues.
And Set would unleash upon the world a new kind of hell.
One that burned cold, and shone red.
A plague to end all worlds.
Even the ones Ra had swore to protect.
