Sekhmet

Warrior goddess of Upper Egypt originally.  Her name means power or might.  She was usually depicted as a woman with the head of a Lioness, clothed in a red sheath which symbolized blood. 274px-Sekhmet_svgSekhmet is one of the oldest goddesses to be found in Egypt.  Sekhmet was said to be the daughter of Ra, a sun god.  Sekhmet had a duality to her personification.  She was on the one hand known to inspire terror in war, and on the other, a curer of diseases and an averter of plagues.  She was the protector of Ma’at(Justice, in this aspect she was a protector of universal laws.  In stories she was sent by Ra to wreak retribution of men for not following the laws of Ra.  She went into a frenzied blood lust and would not stop her slaughter even when Ra wanted her to.  Ra mixed beer and pomegranate juice together, the pomegranate juice to give it an appearance of blood.  Sekhmet gorged herself on the beer thus becoming drunk and promptly falling asleep for three day.  Upon awaking her bloodlust was satisfied.
