Seth (also Set or Sutekh) is the Egyptian God of chaos and confusion.
Seth is the son of Nut and the brother of Osiris, Isis and Nephthys. It is said that Seth murdered his brother Osiris, causing a long, violent fight with his nephew Horus over who should be the earthly ruler. Finally other gods were called to judge and they decided that Horus should rule over the living.
Seth was placed in his tomb and held in place by the Amulet of Horus.
Freed from Captivity and Reimprisonment (1999)
Once Lara reassembles the armour inside the Temple of Horus, Seth mysteriously appears inside the temple, probably travelling in non-corporeal form, accompanied by a Swarm of Locusts - as said in the prophecy - before he assumes his God form. He destroys the armour, thus preventing Lara from summoning Horus. When the armour is destroyed, the Amulet of Horus is knocked into the surrounding water. Lara retrieves it.
At this point, Seth is invincible, and Lara escapes the temple by dodging his attacks which consist of energy missiles and beams. Once Lara climbs out of the temple, she uses the Amulet of Horus to close a trap door and seal Seth within the temple for all time.
Appearance and Powers
Seth is often depicted as a man with the head of a mysterious animal, sometimes interpreted as an anteater.
Occurrences in the Games
Tomb Raider IV: The Last Revelation
At the end of the game he appears as immortal boss in the level Temple of Horus. He shoots green bolts from his gauntlets, is able to fly and also attack Lara with some very harmful melee attacks such as bouncing or impaling, this attack can be a "finalization" like if Lara's health is too low and she suffers this attack; he will get Lara by her neck and shortly after release. He also has power over the dead and the mythological creatures, and can also possess beings, like he did with Werner von Croy.
- After destroying the statue of Horus
- Possessing Von Croy
Seth can be playable in the Tomb Raider Level Editor.
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris
In Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris Set (sic) is the main villain. Lara Croft has to fight him and his minions with the help of fellow treasure hunter Carter Bell and the ancient Egyptian Gods Horus and Isis by trying to resurrect Osiris, the only God of the Egyptian pantheon able to defeat him.
- Seth in Tomb Raider IV: The Last Revelation is sometimes mistaken for Horus by fans.
- Even if not intended, there are similarities between Seth and Natla, both of them have wings, are able to cast fireballs, are immortal and have power over the dead.
- Although Seth's name is spelled Seth, it is pronounced Set.
