Shezmu

Staff gopher, request mailer administration, demonic god of execution, slaughter, and red wine.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shezmu
Shezmu (known by many spellings) is the ancient Egyptian demonic god of execution, slaughter, blood, oil and wine. Like many of the gods of Ancient Egypt, Shezmu was of a complex nature. He had qualities of both light and darkness, but this was not the reason that he was known as a 'demon'. To the Egyptians, demons were not necessarily evil in nature. Often they were quite helpful. Instead, the term "demon" was given to Shezmu because he was one of the lesser deities, and due to his relation to the underworld.

In the Egyptian mythos, Shezmu was the demonic god of red wine, slaughter, and sometimes perfumes or oils. The link between blood and the crimson color of wine is clear. Shezmu was known to destroy wrongdoers, gruesomely putting their heads in winepresses to remove the blood. Shezmu seemed to be both represented as a great evil and an entity of good.

The person behind Shezmu is also of a complex nature. Quick to discipline, equally quick to render assistance to any and all who ask for it.
