Kefnet was the Amonkhet god of knowledge.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

With his ibis head and glorious wings, he represents intellect and the magic of the mind. Kefnet oversees the Trial of Knowledge (the second trial), and judges worthiness based on mental prowess.[2] He believes that knowledge is power and his greatest weapon is his mental acumen and magical ability. Kefnet is also the god who is responsible for the maintenance of the Hekma, drawing power from the Luxa to maintain its water.[3] During the Hour of Promise, Kefnet was killed by the Scorpion God, alongside Oketra, while trying to protect the mortals of Naktamun and repair the Hekma.[4]

Eternalized[edit | edit source]

Kefnet was zombified. During the War of the Spark on Ravnica, he reappeared as a God-Eternal in Bolas's army.

Inspiration[edit | edit source]

Kefnet appears to be based on Thoth, the egyptian god of Knowledge and Magic, who is also often depicted with the head of an Ibis.
