“Did he love the girl he forced to commit those murders? What about the girl he tossed into the old king’s bed for his own purposes, then mutilated when she dared to challenge him? Or the woman he blinded for failing to offer him unswerving devotion?” Who would speak for Liliyana, for Genya and Alina and Baghra if she did not? Who will speak for me?

The Evermore Grimoire: Mythology
Ma'at was the goddess of truth, justice, balance and most importantly order in Egyptian mythology. She represented the crucial concept of how the universe was maintained. The ancient Egyptians believed the universe had an order to it, and it was Ma’at who kept everything in balance which helped them develop a strong sense of morality and justice. Ma’at was also extremely important in achieving the afterlife. After the death of the body, the soul then had to pass through the Hall of Judgment, where a person’s heart was weighed on a scale against Ma’at’s feather of truth. If the deceased heart balanced with the feather, they could continue their journey to the afterlife. If not, their journey ended.
