Set (Seth), master of Chaos
Set is the ancient god of Chaos and deserts. He is associated with disorders, violence and storms. He was lord of the red (desert) land where he was the balance to Horus’ role as lord of the black (soil) land. Although he is sometimes identified as the evil god he once played a very positive role, helping Amun-Ra in his fight against Apophis (Apep). This is why Egyptians feared him but also respected him.
