Phakth, the Father of All [3a], is the Nehekharan god of the Sun. [1a]

The most widely worshipped of the gods of Nehekhara, he appears in many stories and travels across the sky in his golden chariot, chasing his love, the moon-goddess. [1a]

His wife is Neru, the Goddess of Protection. [2b]

Hammurai

His divine heralds were the Hammurai. [4a]

History

For millions of years, he and the other gods dwelt in the Great Land before the coming of men. After this time they became invisible spirits, but able to take on a form of their choosing. [1a]

Legends state that he led a great battle against the gods of Chaos riding in his golden chariot, daemons recoiling from his divine touch. Eventually victorious he and the other gods transformed the land into a verdant paradise later called Nehekhara. [2a]

When Nagash cast his spell of his great spell of desolation against Nehekhara, Ptra himself sought to destroy him with a burning column of light but this failed. He next dispatched his heralds to slay him and for forty days and nights the divine warriors fought against him with sun-forged steel but they could not prevail. As the sun flared with their lord's impotent rage, Nagash reshaped their broken forms and minds into his own loyal servants - the Morghasts. [4a]

Magic

Those who use the Lore of Nehekhara can call on him to imbue the Nehekharan undead with his light, fury and power. [2b]

Ushabti

He is one of the favoured forms for Ushabti guardian statues with Djaf and Phakth. [1a]

Quotes

Ptra, Father of All, has spoken. So long as the sun shines on the warriors of the faithful, victory is certain.

~ Memnet, Grand Hierophant. [3a]
