In ancient Egypt Bastet was known as the goddess of fire, cats, of the home and pregnant women. Said to be the daughter of Re, The Sun God, Bastet seems to have represented two personalities. The docile one represented her as the protector of the home and pregnant women while her aggressive one was said to represent the Pharaohs vicious nature in battle.
