The Tyrant King Becomes a Queen
CW: Omegaverse, implied mpreg
Set is the only omega among his royal siblings and also a member of the caste most disrespected in the ancient world. His fellows are afforded no rights, are often slaves, and are never the main consorts of noblemen. This combined with his status as a war god paints a very ugly picture.
When the siblings' lord great-grandfather assigned Nephthys (B) to be Set's wife, not only did his brazen nature disgust her but also their union would not bear fruit. Such a slight against her was protested by herself and the court, but their lord great-grandfather was too doting on all his great-grandchildren and couldn't bear to leave Set out. Nephthys just had to make the sacrifice.
Truthfully, Set couldn't've cared less. He'd long quashed any maternal instincts he might've had whilst trying to earn their lord father's acknowledgment. Even if Nephthys herself had been able to bear them a child, he severely doubted he'd make a good parental figure in general. In his second chance at life, he didn't expect this aspect to change.
Horus (A), his nephew, surprised him when he refused to kill him after he proved himself as the rightful king. Set looked to Isis (B) in the audience, but she seemed just as confused by her son's actions. This wasn't part of their plan.
The new king then declared before everyone in the throne room that the Usurper would not face the death penalty. Instead, he would be given a new role, a new title—the Queen of Egypt.
What was this little brat thinking?!

I find it funny that these comics inspired from Egyptian mythology have the same protagonist. Set, the Egyptian War God. They even almost have the same character design but different art style. Both have red long hair and light skin tone compare to other characters. I'm not really complaining. I love both Set with all my heart!
In Saika no Kami wa Negawanai (Japanese Josei manga), the story focuses on the relationship between Set and his brother Osiris while in Ennead (Korean BL webtoon), it centered on the rivalry between Set and his brother's son Horus. Both are good in their own way. And yes, both Set suffered a lot in their story.

Tired of romance but still thirsty for long haired bishies as MC? Don’t fret bc I found something interesting. Aside from historical genre, I’m also very fond of mythology and folklore inspired stories. Here is the example of that! A manga inspired from Egyptian Gods mythology!
Saika no Kami wa Negawanai
(The God of Calamity Wishes for Naught)
by Oshitsuji Ei
Synopsis: The story centers on the brotherhood between Set(A War God) and his brother, Osiris(God of Fertility). Set is a royal prince infamous for being bad tempered and violent. Despite that, he really respect his brother and their ruler, Osiris. In contrast, Osiris values peace without bloodshed and the only one that can control Set. One day, the two brothers gone out together. As Set accompanies his brother, Osiris was attacked. He then found himself being suspected for treason and being executed because of Osiris sudden death. Surprisingly, he didn’t die and realized that he gone 5 years back in time where his brother still lives. Can he change the future? Will he find the culprit behind his brother’s death?
First of all, these two brothers are long haired bishies so I’m sold! I wish Set has tanned skin tone tho. I think it will suit him. He’s a war God after all so he should look more manly, right? The artist should check the Egyptian Gods in Kamigami no Asobi otome game. ANYWAY! Let’s talk about the characters and story!
The story caught my attention! In Egypt mythology, Set killed Osiris and Horus aka Osiris son made his revenge to him. I don’t know if the manga will follow that tho. It will be nice if they still follow the original material. I mean Set really convinced himself that he’s not the one who killed his brother so I wonder how the mangaka will unfold this revelation that he’s the one who killed his brother. In the earlier chapter, it shows that he has this love and hate feelings for his brother. Set is just probably being a tsundere lol
Set is your typical arrogant and straightforward MC. Easy to read and thinks violence is the answer to any problem. I actually like him. More than his brother? For now? He don’t understand why he didn’t became the ruler but it was instead his peace loving brother.
As for Osiris, I don’t really trust him. He’s giving me this weird feeling. That he’s hiding something.
Also, don’t be surprised about them marrying to their sisters. That’s normal in mythology lol I actually ship Nephthys with Set for no reason xDDD
And behold! The reason why the title of the manga is like that. There’s a possibility that the story will focus on Set’s character development. I don’t really know for now. It’s up to the author.
