Shin Megami Tensei V daily demon vol. 128 – Isis
The latest demon trailer for Shin Megami Tensei V is now available, which focuses on Isis. The creature first debuted in Shin Megami Tensei NINE.
The Megami Tensei Wiki shares the following background information on Isis:
Isis, also known as Aset or Eset, was a mother goddess in ancient Egyptian religious beliefs, whose worship spread throughout the Greco-Roman world. She was worshiped as the ideal mother and wife, patron of nature and magic; friend of slaves, sinners, artisans and the downtrodden, as well as listening to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats and rulers.
The goddess Isis was the first daughter of Geb, god of the Earth, and Nut, the goddess of the Overarching Sky, and was born on the fourth intercalary day. Isis was said to have blackmailed the true name of Ra the supreme sun god out of him, by making a snake poison him, which could only be cured by Isis herself. (Ra, being a god, cannot die from the poison, but the pain would still last.) In later myths about Isis, she had a brother, Osiris, who became her husband, and she then was said to have conceived Horus. Isis was instrumental in the resurrection of Osiris when he was murdered by Seth. Her magical skills restored his body to life after she gathered the body parts that had been strewn about the earth by Set.
