In turn, the winner of the battle would marry Osiris and become Queen Goddess of Egypt. Isis and Osiris loved each other, so she wanted to be the one who won the battle. Well, Isis defeated her sister, but Nephyts was so angry that she Set, the advisor to the throne, cast Isis 5,000 years into the future and erased her from everyone’s thoughts and minds, as if she never existed.
In modern day LA, Isis, along with the help of newfround friends Scott Dean and Crystal Van Howe, created a new identity, Jessica Eisen. However, Isis stil held a bit of a grudge. See, in the annals of history, Nephtys now sits next to Osiris in Egyptian Mythology.
