Sobek, the Crocodile God, arose among the deities worshipped by the people of Egypt. He was spawned by Ra alongside the likes of Bast, the Panther God, and Sekhmet, the Lion God.[6]

As monotheism arose in Egypt, many gods lost their worshippers and sought tribute elsewhere. While his sibling Bast created the Cult of the Black Panther in Wakanda with great success, Sobek and Sekhmet operated only smaller, less influential cults. They were still known and respected by the people of Wakanda, though.[7] [6]

Ra was mentioned as Sobek's mother, despite being a male deity.[2]
