Kebechet was born in the Dawn Era. Her father, the archangel Anubis, perished fighting a primordial named Asoun. With his death, she got his power to shepherd the souls of the afterlife, making sure they are not waylaid on their journey to one of the Soul Gathering Systems.

In the Dawn and God eras she worked closely with Hades, guiding soul energy to its destination. When the gods and angels left in the Angelic Departure, Kebechet became Hade's competitor and an enemy of those like Thasmudyan who seek to turn the dead into undead.

In 775 HE, elven proselytizers out of Lúthil spread the gospel of Kebechet to Malad-Mîn. When that empire fell and Phlehorn was founded in the Clans region, her worshipper base shrank. Today, about 5% of the Clan's dwarven population still worship her. On Brucrumus, her largest worshipper base is in Ice Cap with hundreds of thousands of goliath paying homage to her. They spread her ways to the dwarves of Brisingr and others of this icy region.

During the reign of the First Khazarkar Empire, Kebechet was widely worshiped. When the Eldritch Conclave became a major player in that empire, her influenced waned. Her temples were robbed, heavily taxed, and her followers often found themselves charged with trumped up crimes and suffering persecution by the magocracy.

In 1002, Queen Dras'ee carried the word of Kebechet into the Aerie of Dragons. Her worship was spread in the empire Forermarg, and is known among her clergy as the Dragon Sect.

In the Eldritch Civil War, followers of the Church of Kebechet were betrayed by those of the Church of Set. This war ended with the Church of Set holding sway over the newly formed Second Khazarkar Empire. They established a theocracy government, issuing a bull forbidding worship of any higher power but Set. After suffering many decades of persecution under the Church of Set, the Khazarkar worshipers of Kebechet fled south into the Sands of Hell establishing a place of free worship. This group became known as the Cinazan Sect. The largest concentration of Cinazan Sect worshipers is at Khimilêth.

In 1502, having acquired a large and strong worshipper, Kebechet becomes a Lesser Power. One of her new powers as a lesser god allow her to divulge secrets on the creation of undead hunting creatures called the Beasts of Ditherra. The spells to create or summon these creatures are only given to her high priests.

On 31 Witchrite 1600, she joined The Balance.
