|Family:||Shu and Tefnut (parents)|

Horus (grandson, formerly son) Anubis (grandson)
Geb and Nut once wished to have children but Ra, the king of the gods heard a prophecy that one of their children would overthrow him. Fearing this, Ra forbade Nut to give birth on any of the three-hundred and sixty days of the year. Determined, Nut gambled with Khonsu for moonlight and used it to create five new days. giving birth to one child each day, Horus, Isis, Nephthys, Osiris, and Set were the results. As punishment for their disobedience, Ra forced Shu to keep the lovers apart for eternity; Nut in the sky and Geb in the earth, eventually leading to their roles as protector of the sky and god of the earth respectively.
- Geb appears before Sadie's ba in the desert of New Mexico. She delivers Nut's love letter to him. When he opens it, fireworks spring out and form Nut's face. Geb is deeply touched and thanks Sadie. In thanks tells Sadie to go to the place of the crosses (Las Cruces, New Mexico), where she will find what she needs. He also tells Sadie of the importance of sacrifice, informing her that he chose to bear Ra's curse and be separated from Nut so she may have his children.
Geb is a deliberate and wise god whom greatly loves both his wife and children and after Sadie tells him to destroy Set's pyramid, he didn't do it.
Geb is several stories tall and his appearance is composed of whatever earth where he manifests himself.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Geb has all the standard abilities of a god and presumably has additional abilities based around the earth.
Nut: Though they have been separated for five thousand years, Geb's love for his wife is undiminished which is fully returned by Nut. Both long to return to each other but agree that they would not ever change their past decisions. When Sadie gives a letter from Nut to him, Geb is overcome with joy for being able to see the image of his beloved wife after their separation.
Geb ruled as king of the gods after his father, Shu abdicated. He himself would eventually pass down the throne to his son, Osiris. After abdicating, Geb was made the judge of divine affairs.
- Because the matters of the gods cannot be solved by the earth, Geb himself may not interfere with them, especially with his own children.
- In the Throne of Fire, the path of Geb is studied by Alyssa, one of the initiates of the Twenty-First Nome.
- Gaia is the Greek equivalent of Geb.
- Unlike Gaia, who is vicious and completely the opposite of kind women moms, Geb is nicer than her.
- Nut is unable to have a host because the sky itself is her body. This may apply to Geb as well, since the earth itself is his body.
