Heru is the son of Aset (Isis) and Asar (Osiris). He was raised after the violent dismemberment of His Father. His Father was betrayed by His Brother (along with cohorts) in an orchestrated Coup De Tat of the Monarchy and Administration.
Set, the Brother of Asar, locked Asar into a newly designed coffin (which was perceived as a present) and sent it floating away in the water, until it hit the Lands of the Retenu or Aamu (Namely Lebanon). It became lodged underneath their city and, via diplomacy, the Lady Aset, was able to secure the coffin and reclaim Him. Set became aware of this and later butchered Asar in 13 to 14 different pieces and put them throughout the Beloved Land. Aset then went on a mission and campaign (along with Set's wife, who also had a son for Asar), to find all of Asar's missing parts. In each place, His Parts was found, was placed in a shrine in reverence of Him.
In a bold move, Heru's Mother then took Her Consort's Sperm and impregnated Herself and gave birth to Heru. She then took Him away from His Ancestral home and raised Him as a warrior, in the hopes of Him overthrowing His Uncle and reclaiming the throne as rightful heir and for the vengeance of His Father.
It is said that the battle raged for about 80 years until Heru finally defeated Him. He took the throne and His Father became the Lord of the Life After.
Heru is usually depicted by a species of Hawk. I never really saw anyone using the actual bird, within their art, to represent Him. I thought it was fitting to use the animal that represents Him because His symbol is still a living and breathing animal in the world. Respect to the Ancients! DEOZI!
