A snake god of ancient Egypt whose name means ‘the one who harnesses spirits’. He is the son of the goddess Serket and has the ability to cure poison from snakebites and scorpion stings. He is a protector and wards off any offensive magic cast upon him. Nehebu-Kau is the first to offer hospitality to the Pharoh when he enters his afterlife and so the Pharaoh makes prayers to all the gods to ask to be under his guidance when entering the afterlife. The god was originally born in human form but after having eaten some coils of the great world serpent, Apophis he grew a scorpion tail and a snake’s head.
