Aapep is a cosmic serpent from ancient Egypt. Aapep is the manifestation of chaos and darkness. During the New Kingdom, stories where told of the battles Aapep had with the Egyptian god of the sky, Ra. The snake used his hypnotic gaze to captivate Ra and then attack him with the Demons, Sek and Mot. The defeat of Aapep was assisted by the prayers of priests. The monster was finally killed by the god Aten or in some tales, by the cat goddess Bast.
