Horus was brother (or nephew) to fellow Osiran Sutekh. He resembled a cow. (PROSE: Scarab of Death)


Sutekh, who was also brother to Osiris, ruled Phaester Osiris. When Sutekh killed Osiris, he projected his mind into a pilot of an Osiran ship, "birthing" a psi-child who (probably) led to Horus. (PROSE: The Sands of Time)

Rise and leadership

After Osiris' death, Sutekh and Nephthys both escaped to Earth, destroying Phaester Osiris. The 740 remaining Osirans were led by Horus in battle against Sutekh, finally defeating him in Egypt. Feeling that they could not stoop to Sutekh's level by killing him, they trapped Sutekh in Egypt, having a pyramid on Mars relay a beam to paralyse him, stopping him from moving or projecting his mind. They also set the methods to free himself just out of his reach in order to make the punishment that much more torturous. (TV: Pyramids of Mars, PROSE: The Sands of Time)

Later, Horus put himself in suspended animation in the Black Pyramid on Beta Osiris. After this, most believed him to be dead.

In the 16th century, the cryogenic systems failed and Horus actually died.

In the 2560s, the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith found his corpse. (PROSE: Scarab of Death)


He worshiped by many cultures. The Egyptians of Earth worshiped him amongst the pantheon of gods, many of whom were named after or were Osirans.

The native Martians also worshiped Horus. Forming the Holy Order of Oras, they followed the teachings of the Book of Oras. The Order's teachings were of a non-violent nature and asked its followers to abandon such means. The Ninth Book of Oras was the Rebirth of the Father. (PROSE: GodEngine)
