After Set murdered Osiris, family dynamics became even more complex. Isis just wasn’t going to take this sitting down. She sprang right into action, looking far and wide for the scattered pieces of Osiris’ dismembered body. After locating them, she managed to bind them back together and resurrect Osiris. Isis and Osiris then celebrated by conceiving Horus - their divine son, and Egypt’s famous Falcon god. Interestingly, when Isis knew she was pregnant, she hid in the Nile delta in order to protect Horus from the deadly wrath of Set.
