Sobek symbolizes the might
of the Egyptian pharaohs and often serves as judge of the living
over those who stand accused of crimes. In certain criminal cases where the
guilt of the person accused is questionable, pharaohs ask that Sobek judge the
persons innocence or guilt. The accused is then forced to Swim across
the treacherous Nile. If he makes it across unmolested by crocodiles, then Sobek
judges him to be innocent and he is free to go about his life. An injury from
a crocodile, however, means the person is guilty and should be put to death
(assuming the crocodiles dont finish the job first).
The crocodile god worship
centers at the city of Arsinoë, which is called Crocodilopolis by foreigners.
According to his followers, Sobek is considered a fourfold deity who represents
the four elemental gods (Ra/fire, Shu/air, Geb/earth, and Osiris/water).
In the Book of the Ani, Sobek assists in the birth of Horus;
he fetches Isis and Nephthys to protect the deceased; and he aids in the destruction of Set. Sobek is admired
and feared for his ferocity. At the command of Ra, he performed tasks such as
catching the four sons of Horus with a net as
they emerged from the waters in a lotus bloom.
Sobek is depicted as a crocodile, a mummified crocodile, or in human form with the head of a crocodile, crowned either by a pair of plumes or sometimes by a combination of the solar disk and the uraeus, or cobra. He has also been depicted wearing horns like those of Amon-Ra.
This three-foot-long rod of dark oak is crowned with a gold pyramid-shaped tip. Each side of the pyramid has a large jewel that corresponds to one of the four elements.
The Rod of the Elements
has the following properties:
The rod emits a continual Resist Energy (fire, water, earth and air spells) spell.
The wielder gains
the ability to turn or rebuke elementals (fire, earth, water and air only) as
if a cleric of 20 th level.
The wielder can speak
with any creature that has a sub-type of one of the four elements.
The wielder can cast
the following spells at will; bless/curse
water, endure elements, magic stone, produce flame and Wind Wall.
control water 5/day.
flame strike 5/day.
All spells are equal
in effect to those cast by a 20th level cleric.
