Nephthys is the daughter of Nut, sister of Isis and wife of Seth, the god of disorder. Her loyalties, however, lay with Osiris, by whom she had a child, Anubis. When Seth found out who the father was, he murdered Osiris, and Nephthys joined Isis in the search for Osiris's body. Along with her sister Isis, she befriends and protects the dead. She is represented as a female with the hieroglyph of her name on her head.
