Set who is known by many names (Great Dragon, Yig, and Quetzalcoatl), is a slavering hungry deity. It's from the Outer Dark, a being whose physical form is rejected by the world, twisting reality around it. Relics which have been blessed or touched by him are no longer completely part of the physical world, which is the reason that they are endowed with incredible powers. Any priest who draws on those powers does so at great personal risk, as the forces that are unleashed corrupt the flesh and tear at the mind.

Apostate Stygians who speak blasphemies against Set often meet sticky ends. They mysteriously disappear, are found hideously murdered via the most inhuman methods, or they end up slowly turning into serpent men as their eyes turn yellow and their skin slips away. Those who tend carefully to serpents appear to earn its blessing. Human sacrifices are regularly dedicated to Set and so are the mysterious rites. It's believed that he is a Great Old One that is sustained by blood.
