Ra, also known as Ra-Horakhty[1], was the almighty King of both the Egyptian[2] and Sumerian Gods. He was the father of Gilgamesh. Gilgamesh blamed Ra for allowing his wife and child to be killed while Gilgamesh was away at war. In anger, Gilgamesh turned to Dahak.[3]

With the other Egyptian gods, Ra banished the god Set to the Egyptian underworld.[4]

According to Dumuzi, the Sumerian Gods all perished when the Chalice of the Gods was destroyed by Gilgamesh under Dahak's orders.[5]

However, Ra had survived. Alongside Isis, Osiris, and Anubis, Ra made a rare appearance in Egypt to prevent the reawakening of the evil god Set at the Tomb of the Ancients.[4]

Contest of PantheonsEdit

In another reality, created after Gabrielle brought back Xena from her final death with a boon from C'thulon[6], Ra was tricked by Anubis into declaring war on the Greek Gods after Autolycus stole a necklace belonging to Isis. Ra himself led aerial attacks on Greek villages.[7]

In order to calm the war and maintain their worshippers, Zeus invited Ra and the Egyptian gods to Olympus, to observe a "contest of champions," with mortals fighting to the death to declare which Pantheon was superior. Zeus chose Gabrielle as the Champion of the Greeks, while Ra chose Fierosis as Champion of the Egyptians. When Autolycus tricked Zeus into allowing himself, Xena, and Joxer to serve as champion, Ra added four Apis to join Fierosis in the battle.[1] He was critical of Xena's plan of attack, which he thought appeared to be "cowardice."[8]

When Anubis sent his Army of the Dead to attack and capture the Greek champions, Zeus became outraged at the supposed betrayal by Ra and sent his Proxidicae to detain Ra. Easily defeating the Proxidicae, Ra pleaded ignorance in Anubis' scheme, but was then taken into custody when the Army of the Dead and Anubis stormed Olympus, with Anubis proclaiming himself Supreme god over both pantheons. After Xena killed Anubis, Ra was freed and declared himself and the Egyptians as friends to the Greek gods.[9]
