Aset, or Iset, better known by her Greek name Isis, was an Isu who was later deified in the Egyptian pantheon.

The enclosed content is of ambiguous canonicity.


During her lifetime, Isis was known to have been in possession of the Ankh and the Scepter, two Pieces of Eden. According to legend, Isis used the Ankh to protect the Egyptian pharaohs from harm. When her partner Osiris was murdered by his brother Seth, Isis was overwhelmed by pain and grief.[1]

She then used the Ankh to revive him, but it only brought Osiris back for one night. Using the opportunity, they consummated their love that night, leading to the conception of their son, Horus.[1]


During the 5th century BCE, immigrants called metics brought religious practices of their own to Greek polises, including Athens and Port of Piraeus. Among these was the worship of the Egyptian Isis.[2]

In the 1st century BCE, a temple on the island of Pharos in Alexandria was dedicated to her. Shadya, the daughter of Hotephres and Khenut, named her new doll Iset, and believed she would protect Shadya and those she cared about.[3]

Behind the Scenes

Jeff Simpson's concept art of Isis for Assassin's Creed: Origins ended up used as a base for an outfit worn by Cleopatra. The statue of Isis in Assassin's Creed: Origins is modeled after Greco-Roman statues, holding a cornucopia in her left hand and a rudder in her right hand.
