Bast, also known as Bastet, is an Egyptian goddess for cats, fertility, art, music, dance and lots more, and when I say lots, I mean more than a dozen other qualities. Her Greek name is Artemis, goddess of the hunt. At the top of this paragraph, you can see how to write Bast in heiroglypics. Her name means "devouring lady."
New paragraph down here! I have a secret for you. Shhhh. We don't want Sekmet to hear. I bet you're wondering who Sekhmet is. Sekhmet is Bast's evil twin sister. Together they creat a balance between chaos and order.
