Osiris is the name of a Promethean Lineage. Also called the Nepri, the Osirians make claim as the closest thing to royalty among the Prometheans, based on their "descendance" from an Egyptian god. They are commonaly associated with the element of water, and their phlegmatic humour tends to give them detatched, analytical natures.

Origins

Osirans claim as their Progenitor the Egyptian god Osiris, who was dismembered and returned to life by Isis on the banks of the Nile.

Creation

Their creation rites echo the story of Isis' rites: after being immersed in river water mingled with herbs, the body of the deceased is divided into thirteen parts with a ceremonial bronze knife, and the smallest body part thrown away. The creator then spits on the corpse, providing phlegm, and the remaining parts are put back together using flax thread. The corpse is then made to swallow crushed rose petals, infused with Azoth, which quicken the corpse to life. The new Osiran thus created is granted life by the element of Water, giving them an excess of phlegmatic humour.

Traits

The Nepri, as Osirans are sometimes known, take pride in their divine heritage, and display a regal authority which comes from nothing more supernatural than their own self-belief. Typically, their missing body part appears as a 'normal' deformity in their human seeming - a missing hand or foot, for example. They can easily communicate with the dead through corpses, and can even return from the dead themselves with no penalty. Some are skilled enough to bring their Promethean brethren back as well, displaying a mastery over life and death which makes it hard to discount their claims.

Disfigurements

Their disfigurements also display their Egyptian heritage: they take on the aspect of an Egyptian mummy, a skeletal corpse with skin that appears rotted or dessicated. The body part lost during their creation becomes horribly apparent to those who can see it, a gory, bloody wound. They also carry the scent of the herbs used in their creation rites.
