[MYTHOLOGY MEME] 5/5 Creatures/Monsters: Ammit

A female demon of the Ancient Egyptian underworld, Ammit’s body was a combination of the largest deadly animals that lived around the Nile: part lion, part hippopotamus, and part crocodile.

She lived by the scales of justice in Duat and there she waited as the hearts were weighed. If the heart was judged to be impure then Ammit would devour it and the deceased person couldn’t continue their journey onto the land of the dead.
