Isis is a goddess in Ancient Egyptian mythology. She is one of the five children of Geb and Nut and was born on the fourth intercalary day. She was the sister-wife of Osiris and gave birth to Horus, the falcon-headed God of War. She was a important part in her husband's life. When her brother Set destroyed him, Isis was the one who went to find every part of him and, using her magic, restored him back to life. Her Symbol is the Tyet, also known as the knot of Isis. She is a member of the Ennead of Heliopolis.

She was wise and became the goddess of magic and nature. She tricked Ra into revealing his real name, leaving him powerless. She is also known as the protector of the dead, goddess of children and a healer. Her name means "Throne", which is the reason she has a throne headdress.
