Also known as Re, this guy hatched from a cosmic egg (or a flower) that somehow grew up to the surface of the waterworld. Ra has the head of a hawk, the body of a human, and presides over the sun disk and obelisk. Egyptians worshipped Ra exclusively until his popularity became so widespead that he began to appear in other cultures with different names... The temple at Heliopolis was at first devoted to Ra, but eventually the kings of Egypt diluted his role as creator, fused his story with that of other deities and heroes, and expanded on a polytheistic concept. Ra! Ra! Ra!
