|“||We only serve the strong. Are you strong?||”|
Serqet is the Egyptian goddess of scorpions.
Serqet attended Osiris's birthday party.
Serqet and Bast briefly engage in battle in Central Park. She appears to defeat Bast, but the cat goddess turns into Muffin and escapes into the Duat. She later engages in combat with Zia Rashid in a museum, who manages to expel Serqet from her host. Serqet, however, was able to reform for an unknown reason.
Serqet appears before Carter, when he fused with Horus, calling all the gods to fight Apophis. When Carter order the gods to aid him, Serqet states that she will only serve the strong, and asks Carter is he strong. Carter then moves instantly before Serqet and slashes her in half, after which she reforms from a pile of sand. Nekhbet nods and mutters that Carter is strong after all.
She is described to be a woman with pale skin that resembles chitin. She wears brown robes with gold jewelry adorning her hands and neck. A live scorpion rests on her head. Her eyes are beady black, and her long, dark hair is unnaturally thick, as if made out of millions of bug antennae. Her hair is cut in the Egyptian style. When she opens her mouth, one can see sideways mandibles snap and retract outside her regular teeth.
She has power over scorpions and snakes, able to summon swarms of them. She is also shown to have the abilities of a scorpion, such as a large scorpion tail and the power to change in to a huge one. When she served Set, because Chaos was increasing she was able to reform almost immediately, even after being bound by the Ribbons of Hathor. It is presumed she has some form of Poison Magic.

Sekhmet: One of Serqet's sisters. The original Eye of Ra. The flip side of her personality is Hathor, the cow goddess. In The Red Pyramid, Sadie, Carter, and Zia trick her into eating salsa, which she thinks is blood.
Bast: One of Serqet's siblings. Sister to Sekhmet and Tefnut as well.
