Mythos

Said to reside in the Underworld in the River Styx, she is the elder sister to Chimera (though she is also referred to as a three-headed male dog named Cerberus). Ammit works alongside Anubis in weighing the scales of people’s hearts against one of Sìfènghuáng’s feathers. Should the heart be found heavier the lost soul would then be bound by a weight anchored to them by chains of Magic and rolled into the river of fiery green flame to be eternally restless until devoured by Ammit. Even those clever enough to slip the bonds of fate have little chance of salvation as she pursues them relentlessly. Her hunting prowess on land is as proficient as the River, meaning escape to the salvation and immortality promised and granted by Anubis is all but impossible for the damned of the River.

She is described as having the head of a crocodile, the forequarters of a lion, and the hindquarters of a hippo; a combination of some of the largest “Man-Eaters” known to exist. Her teeth are long and narrow like her jaw to quickly snap up and ensnare writhing souls within her maw with little chance of escape. Her breath is as fiery as her mane, which blazes a bright green like that of her breath while a powerful tail made for efficient swimming drags behind.
