Jenma, Soul Devourer


Time to feed. Always the women froze in fear when Jenma's terrifying form, ebony fabric on creamy, alabaster skin, had appeared. For them, her appearance meant but one thing. "Who should I feast upon today?" She muses, prompting the women to prostrate themselves in prayer, pleading, begging; "Anyone but me." Being consumed by Jenma meant having their essence drained from their bodies, leaving nothing more than a dry husk.

Name originEdit

Ammit ("devourer" or "soul-eater"; also spelled Ammut or Ahemait) was a female demon in ancient Egyptian religion with a body that was part lion, hippopotamus and crocodile — the three largest "man-eating" animals known to ancient Egyptians. A funerary deity, her titles included "Devourer of the Dead", "Eater of Hearts", and "Great of Death".

Ammit lived near the scales of justice in Duat, the Egyptian underworld. In the Hall of Two Truths, Anubis weighed the heart of a person against the feather of Ma'at, the goddess of truth, which was depicted as an ostrich feather. If the heart was judged to be not pure, Ammit would devour it, and the person undergoing judgement was not allowed to continue their voyage towards Osiris and immortality. Once Ammit swallowed the heart, the soul was believed to become restless forever; this was called "to die a second time".
