Character description

Most famously, Hathor was an Ancient Egyptian goddess who personified the principles of love, beauty, music, motherhood and joy. She was one of the most important and popular deities throughout the history of Ancient Egypt. Hathor was worshiped by Royalty and common people alike in whose tombs she is depicted as "Mistress of the West" welcoming the dead into the next life. In other roles she was a goddess of music, dance, foreign lands and fertility who helped women in childbirth, as well as the patron goddess of miners.  She was commonly represented with cow horns.
Hathor in Wikipedia

In Sam Barone's Empire series, Hathor is an Egyptian, one  of the officers of Northac.  He is very loyal, but he is not a cruel man, and does not mistreat the Akkadians when Northac controls the city.   He had a nodding relationship with En-hedu when she was selling items near the Egyptian headquarters.   When Tammuz was injured during the fight against Northac, Hathor was touched that she threw herself over Tammuz to protect him, and spared their lives.  In turn, En-hedu pled for his life when the Egyptians were defeated, and he joined the Akkadian army.
