Shamhat Saraswati was a powerful sorceress among the Bird-Men of Akah Ma'at and a great priestess of Oshtur.[1][4][2] She served as the second Sorcerer Supreme[3] between ~15,000 B.C. til ~11,000 B.C.[1][4][2]

Receiving the title of Sorcerer Supreme from the hands of Agamotto

As the Sorcerer Supreme, Saraswati battled the Dragon of the Moon, Dweller-in-Darkness, the N'Garai, Shuma-Gorath, Sligguth, Slorioth, and the Trinity of Ashes.[2] Guided by Shamhat and her sponsors Oshtur and Agamotto, the Bird-Men evolved into powerful sorcerers, becoming almost godlike beings.[3]

Some of the Bird-Men,[3] including Varuna, began to act judge and executioner over the "lower races". He pulled many of the Bird-Men to his cause naming them the Asura. To oppose him, Saraswati rallied her own forces calling them the Seraphim,[4][2] and due to the machination of the Demon Chthon, war broke between the two group.[3]

As their war-devastated Earth, Oshtur was forced to extradimensionally banish both factions,[3] and Shamhat's tenure as Sorcerer Supreme came to an end.[4][2]
