The beasts will sweep across the land!
~ Set to Mathayus, after taking over Magus.
SetRiseoftheAkkadian-0.jpg

Set is the mighty and ancient Egyptian god of storms, chaos, and evil and the overarching antagonist of both the 2002 prequel video game The Scorpion King: Rise of the Akkadian and Dark Universe's The Mummy. He is the superior master of Magus and Ahmanet in their respective franchise, which he made a deal with the latter in order to uphold and continue his next life circle. He is one of the two overarching antagonists of The Mummy franchise, the other being Anubis.

He was voiced by Daran Norris, portrayed by Javier Botet who also portrayed Tristana Medeiros, The Crooked Man, Mama and the Leper, an incarnation of IT and by Tom Cruise (when he possesses Nick Morton) who also portrayed Vincent, Les Grossman and Lestat.

History

Set was born billions of years ago in Egypt, possibly in Cairo. Set was born to the sky goddess Nut and the earth god Geb. Set's sister and wife was Nephthys. Nut and Geb also produced another two children who became husband and wife: the divine Osiris and Isis, whose son was Horus. The myth of Set's conflict with Horus, Osiris, and Isis appears in many Egyptian sources, including the Pyramid Texts, the Coffin Texts, the Shabaka Stone, inscriptions on the walls of the temple of Horus at Edfu, and various papyrus sources.

Over the years, Set's parents died. Set killed his brother Osiris with the Sword of Osiris, and was left alone, but realized his own true purpose; he is the mighty god of storms, chaos, evil, and deserts. Using his powerful incredible powers, Set ruled over Egypt as sort of tyrannical king, and even was the protector of Ra. As a result, the Sword was broken by Ptah to prevent history from repeating itself.

The Scorpion King: Rise of the Akkadian

Magus had longed to summon Set thanks to tricking Mathayus into rebuilding the Sword of Osiris in the Underworld and killing either Jesup or Rama for a sacrifice. Once Mathayus killed Magus, the latter became the vessel for Set. Mathayus quickly defeated Set before the Chaos God would summon the armies of the Underworld.

Dark Universe's The Mummy

Deal with the Princess

Princess Ahmanet is first in line to replace her father Menehptre only to be replaced when his new wife gives birth to a son. Determined to usurp the throne, Ahmanet sells her soul to Set, who promises to make her Queen in exchange for gaining a corporeal form. After killing her family, Ahmanet prepares to sacrifice her lover only to be captured and condemned to be buried alive inside a demonic sarchopagus immersed in liquid mercury within a specialized secret tomb.

Masterminding the Present Day

In present day Iraq, military mercenary and adventurer Nick Morton and his team accidentally discover the tomb of Ahmanet while fleeing from groups of armed thieves. Nick and his team bring the tomb aboard their own airplane, and attempt to travel out of Iraq. During the flight, a huge wave of crows assault the airplane, killing everyone on board and causing the plane to crash.

Nick revives a day later, and is greeted by Dr. Henry Jekyll, the head of the Prodigium, a secret society dedicated to hunting supernatural threats not long after his first confrontation with newly revived Ahmanet. He tells Nick that he was chosen by the Princess to become what appears to be the key to her conquest of the Earth, which is why he survived the plane crash.

The Princess Escape

Ahmanet uses her vast supernatural powers to free herself and to escape from the hands of the Prodigum, wreaking havoc, death and destruction in the process. Dr. Jekyll who attempted to stop her from escaping, fails, and transforms into Edward Hyde, his murderous alternative personality, forcing Nick to fight him. After regressing to his original personality, Jekyll tells Nick that he is the only one who can stop Ahmanet, and joins him with his assistant Jennifer "Jenny" Halsey.

London Skirmish

Ahmanet arrives in London, using her powers to raise an army of undead and creating a sandstorm that ravages the city, killing thousands in the process. During the battle, she captures Jenny and drowns her. Seeing her dead, Nick sacrifices himself and commits suicide with a ceremonial dagger.

Set's Avatar

In The Mummy: Demastered, video game that set in concurrent events of the movie, in a bid to rid of elite Prodigium soldier who after them since tye chaos at crash site, Ahmanet summons Set's avatar to rid of him once and for all. Even though Set's avatar immediately destroyed (thus stripped the ancient god means to aid Ahmanet, their combined force resulted enough damage to force the elite soldier to retreat, allowing Ahmanet to complete final stages of her plan.

The Final Battle

After killing himself, Nick is then been possessed by Set, who proceeds to join Ahmanet to uphold his end of the bargain until he sees Jenny's dead body, at which he point he regains control of his body and uses Set's powers to suck the life out of Ahmanet and kill her once and for all, thus ending the battle and the undead's threat.

Departure

Nick uses Set's powers to resurrect Jenny, saying goodbye before becoming overwhelmed by Set's power and disappearing. Later, Jenny links up with Dr. Jekyll and they discuss if Nick, now fused with Set, is good or evil and whose side he is on. It is also revealed that Nick has resurrected his friend Vail, who protests as to what they will do now, to which Nick responds, "Where is your sense of adventure?" The two ride off in the desert as a sandstorm trails behind them.

Personality

Set is nothing more or less than the ultimate personification of evil, death, destruction, chaos, and storms. He is a mighty and authoritative god who seeks to uphold his next life circles, and to kill Ahnamet after she did not made her part of the deal. However, he seems to be caring and protective, as he sees Jenny dead or rather thought to be protector of Ra.

Set really the Bigger Bad of the entire film events, as he masterminds the events of the film from behind the scenes and he is the one who made Ahnamet an undead mummy. Despite his chaotic and extremely evil personality, Set is also anti-heroic villain, after he becomes fused with Nick, they become anti-heroes, but Set is not redeemed, and it is speculated that Set will be possibly the main antagonist of the Dark Universe.

Powers and Abilities

  • Lower Tier Omnipetence: Set is one of the most powerful Egyptian Gods, only rivaled by his brother Osiris/Anubis and only surpassed by Ra and the creator of all Ptah.
  • Eldritch Powers: Set is an Egyptian celestial being who was worshipped by ancient Egyptians. He is regarded as a malevolent being and the master of evil and darkness.
    • Immortality: He has been alive since long before the dawn to time. It is unknown if Pagan Deities can be truly killed off.
    • Possession: He needs to take possession of a physical being, so as to interact with the physical world. He currently inhabits Nick Morton.
    • Necromancy: He has an immeasurable control over the concept of death. He can resurrect anyone as well, given as how his host Nick Morton has harnessed his powers to revive his best friend and most trusted ally Vail.
    • Magic Absorption: Nick used Seth's powers to absorb the magical force which was keeping Ahmanet alive, killing her off for good.
    • Power Bestowal: Seth conjured a pact with his follower and lover Ahmanet so as to bestow her with supernatural magical powers. It is seen that Seth can also take her powers away.
    • Avatar Creation: Seth displayed the ability to manifest a demonic avatar that takes appearance of huge demonic head and a pair of disembodied hands from which he can conjure fire blasts and temporarily interact with things. Due to the avatar being temporary construct, it can be destroyed by more destructive mortal weapons.

Trivia

  • This is the 7th incarnation of Set in live-action and media.
  • Set is the only character to appear in both the 1999 Mummy franchise and Dark Universe.
