Bast

Beloved Bast, mistress of happiness and bounty, twin of the Sun God, slay the evil that afflicts our minds as you slew the serpent Apep. With your graceful stealth anticipate the moves of all who perpetrate cruelties and stay their hands against the children of light. Grant us the joy of song and dance, and ever watch over us in the lonely places in which we must walk.

— Ancient Egyptian Prayer to Bast

My second completed Egyptian diety, Bast, lady of the perfume jar; also known as ‘Tearer’ and ‘Devourer’.
