Original Role:

Devouring sinful hearts in the Underworld

In Skin Deep:

Ammut, or any Ammut at all, has yet to make an appearance.

"A demoness from Ancient Egypt, Ammut lived in the Hall of Ma'at, where the dead awaited judgement. She had the head of a crocodile, the body of a lion, and the back end of a hippopotamus; the three most dangerous animals in Egypt. When the dead's soul was weighed against a feather Ammut would devour those with heavier, more sinful hearts."

The beginning creature of Kory Bing's 'Bestiary Alphabet', Ammut is a legendary figure in Egypt. As stated, Ammut ate the sinful hearts, letting the good ones free.
