Heliopolis, a Greek word meaning "City of the Sun" is now part of the modern city of Cairo, but in the time of Ancient Egypt it was one of four major centres of worship for the Egyptian religion. The gods worshipped at Heliopolis constitute one of Earth's great pantheons. When the human pharaohs took over Heliopolis, the gods created their own celestial city of Heliopolis in a dimension adjacent to Earth's. It is there that the gods of ancient Egypt have dwelt through historical times until the present.
Seth was born of the union of Geb and Nut, and he is therefore one of the older generations of Heliopolitans. His wife Nepthys had no issue with him but gave his brother, Osiris, a son, Annubis.
Seth began his reign of evil by attacking, murdering, and dismembering his brother Osiris. Osiris was recovered and returned to life by the combined efforts of several of his fellow gods, and Seth fell from the good graces of his fellow Heliopolitans. Eventually, Seth warred with Horus. The two gods battled for centuries until Seth, through deceit, captured Horus, Isis, and Osiris in a mystically sealed pyramid on Earth, where they remained until freed by Odin in the 20th Century.
While Osiris, Isis, and Horus were imprisoned, Seth began to develop his power base and move toward his goal of ending all life in the multiverse. Since he had stolen the mantle of God of Death from Anubis, Seth reasoned that if all the multiverse were dead, then as Lord of the Dead, he would have dominion over all the varying dimensions.
