Apophis is the Egyptian god of chaos and the main antagonist of The Kane Chronicles. He is the serpent embodiment of Chaos and wishes to eat the Sun and plunge the world into darkness. He has the ability to possess others and has done so three times: the first being Set's lieutenant, a demon called Face of Horror, a magician called Vladimir Menshikov and a rebel magician Kwai. He is defeated in the final book The Serpent's Shadow by Cater and Sadie Kane who channeled the powers of Horus and Isis with their own powers to destroy his shadow destroying Apophis himself too, but in doing so forces the other Egyptian Gods (except Anubis) to leave Earth.
