The first of my Diwaneter Pantheon series. It features a group of pagan gods of the Philippines (The Diwata) fused with the ancient Egyptian gods (The Neter).
Background: Sobek Buwaya is the fusion of the Egyptian crocodile god Sobek and the Filipino water dragon/river deity Buwaya. A long time ago, Sobek encountered the monstrous Buwaya. He was impressed with the creature’s ferocity and power. Thus, they formed an alliance and created the being known as Sobek Buwaya. Sobek Buwaya is Sobek’s emanation as a Philippine Crocodile although he often uses the form of the more common and powerful Saltwater Crocodile. In his bipedal form, he has the body of a man and a head of a crocodile and he wears the traditional Filipino barong tagalog. Although benevolent, Sobek Buwaya is often caricatured as a symbol of Filipino corrupt politicians. Sometimes, he wears the uniform of the Philippine police.
