About Sekhmet: Over a thousand years ago there was a small village who believed a powerful goddess would be born. A girl who was born on a new moon and had pointed ears and pointed teeth. She would grow to have tremendous power. Sekhmet was this child. Sacrifices were made in her name because the villagers believed that she would bring them prosperity and happiness in exchange for the animal blood spilt. A young Sekhmet was fascinated by the flowing red blood at the ceremonies. So fascinated was she that she began to drink that blood.

As the girl grew up she began to demand more sacrifices. The villages grew fearful of her powers. Outrage grew as Sekhmet began killing villagers to fill her lust for blood. They condemned the goddess as an evil witch and banished her from the village, telling her if she returned they would burn her alive. Sekhmet felt lost and angry that her people would abandon her. Overcome with rage she used her powers she set fire to everyone that denied her. She listened to them scream as they burnt into ash.

She then dug a hole deep into the earth, under the ashes of her people with her bare hands. She covered herself with dirt and ash and fell asleep for a thousand years.

It was a mortal Hyde that found Sekhmet a thousand years later. He was traveling alone in the woods on horseback when he came upon a clearing that seemed strange to him. In the clearing there was a tall, thin rock sticking straight out of the earth and he felt a compulsion to start to dig beside it. After digging a few feet he came upon a beautiful woman. She was not dead because she was breathing but she was asleep. He uncovered the rest of her from the earth and tried to wake her. The woman awoke with a start and bit his neck draining him of almost all of his blood.

Sekhmet almost left him to die but then she realized that if she gave him immortality like herself he could stay with her forever and she could feel the love she felt from her followers so many years ago. She decided to make him a vampire like herself, giving him the knowledge and the memories she had of her life before.

It was on the grounds where Hyde found Sekhmet that Mayfair Manor was built. Hyde now watches over Sekhmet keeping her hidden from the likes of The Midnight Society who would use her powers for evil and also keeping her happy because her displeasure could be the end of everything.

 

Tasha’s comments: I had bought Sekhmet’s first head not knowing quite what I was going to do with her. I painted her with no particular idea in my mind but her character jumped out at me as I was painting. I always thought Sekhmet’s first head, a Lishe, would make a good head mold for Satine and so in the end that’s what she ended up being. I had bought the VDES head with the intention to sell it after I painted it. I ended up liking her too much so she became Sekhmet. I really like the heavy lidded sexy/evil kinda look the VESD head has.

Sekhmet’s current faceup. I did it a while ago so it was done when I did faceups with pastels but I like it so she will probably have it for a while longer.

 

Even thought I had a Lishe head as Sekhmet first, it was when I got this head that she was really Sekhmet to me. I ended up repainting her because I didn’t quite love the purple eyeshadow she had.
