The introduction of Taweret in Moon Knight’s fourth episode has left fans of the series both intrigued and curious about the role she will play in the show’s plot.
As a goddess of fertility and rejuvenation, Taweret is known for her fierce nature and her ability to protect women and families.
But what else do we know about this newly-introduced Egyptian deity in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
Taweret, also known as “the great one,” was a prominent goddess in ancient Egyptian mythology.
She was often depicted with a hippopotamus head, a lion’s arms, and a crocodile’s tail and legs.
As the protector of women and children, she was worshipped throughout Egypt as a fierce god who could help during childbirth and ward off evil spirits.
Many Egyptian women wore her amulet to protect themselves and their children from harm.
Taweret was also associated with the Nile River, as she was believed to have the power of renewal and could bring about life through the river’s annual flooding.
She was often referred to as “She Who Removes Water,” as she could control the river’s water levels and bless and cleanse the dead, guiding them through the afterlife and back to the land of the living.
While Taweret is not a well-known character in Marvel Comics, she is referenced in Moon Knight’s first episode when Steven is working in the gift shop.
When his museum boss mistakes the plush toys resembling hippos as just that, Steven corrects her, informing her that they are actually representations of the Egyptian goddess Taweret.
In the fourth episode, Taweret makes a more prominent appearance as she opens a door for Marc Spector and Steven Grant in the mental institution afterlife they find themselves in.
As a powerful goddess of protection and renewal, Taweret brings a unique and compelling element to the series, adding depth and intrigue to an already thrilling psychological adventure show.
As a protector of women and families and a powerful force of renewal and rebirth, Taweret adds a fascinating and engaging layer to the already intriguing world of Egyptian mythology in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
