Ra Ka
Ra Ka – or Ka Ra – is a minor circle deity of Relthea. Relthea is fire and water. So it is only natural, that she claims cats and dogs as her own. Ra Ka is the essence of the eternal fight between these two, elevated to the circle. By this token, Ka Ra is also the deity of fights amongst servants and domestic disputes. She is depicted either as a woman with a dog to one side of her and a cat on her other, or as a circle formed from dogs and cats chasing one another or biting into each other’s tails. Especially as a component in curses or rituals the furs of a cat’s and a dog’s tail, tied into a knot, are also commonly used as her symbol.
