ACO Bayek fighting Apep in the Duat Concept Art

Concept art of Bayek fighting Apep in his hallucination

Apep, or Apophis, is an ancient Egyptian deity embodying chaos. He is usually depicted as a giant serpent that devoured the hearts - and thus the souls- of the dead. In mythology, Apep and Ra have an eternal battle which represents the cycle of night and day.

In 48 BCE, the Medjay Bayek of Siwa experienced a drug-induced hallucination in which he fought and defeated Apep with a glowing bow and arrows aboard Ra's solar barge.[1] A decade later, when Bayek seemingly visited the Duat as part of his mission to end the Curse of the Pharaohs, he found Apep's decaying skeleton.[2]

Trivia

  • Apep's role as the Devourer is shared by a female monster named Ammit. She has the head of a crocodile, the front half of a lioness and the rear half of a hippopotamus. If the heart is heavier than Ma'at's feather on the scale, Ammit ate the heart. Once Ammit swallowed the heart, the soul was believed to become restless forever; this was called "to die a second time".
