In this version the story begins with Osiris as the first pharaoh and Isis as the first queen of Egypt. Even though it was a time of piece called the golden age, Osiris had many troubles with his brother set.  Set devised a plan to kill his brother Osiris and take all of his powers and control Egypt. Set built a box that would chain anyone who entered it. He waited for his brother to get drunk and the challenged him to a game.

The game was to see who was stronger and break out of the box faster. Osiris said that he would go first because he was very competitive.  When Osiris got in the box Set quickly poured molten lead in to the box. Osiris tried to escape but the lead dried to quickly. After it hardened Set threw the bow in to the Nile. Isis went looking for Osiris and found him in a tree.
