Set, being a demon bound into equine form, is carnivorous, eating flesh and magically transforming it into energy to power it's demonic form. Set, as well as other Demon-Steeds, are unlimited by the needs of any regular horse, such as warmth or breathing and is resistant to non-magical inflicted injuries. Set is able to travel through air, on land, through water or even in space as well as traverse dimensional borders (generally only through a pre-existing portal however).
Set was a demon bound into equine form by Satan, who possessed the Satanic Trident which commanded Set and the other Demon-Steeds. Daimon Hellstrom, rebelling against his father Satan, managed to steal the Satanic Trident from hell and therefore took control over Set and the other Demon-Steeds. He first summoned them in hell itself as a means to escape his father who was trying to kill him at the time. He used Set and the Demon-Steeds variously over the years for transportation for himself and his fellow Defenders or random passengers.
When Daimon tried to help a trio of damned souls escape hell and gain entrance into heaven, he summoned Set and his Demon-Steeds and took them through the only path he could: straight through hell itself. As they crossed through hell, they were brutally assaulted by hordes of demons sent by Hellstrom father Satan. Although Hellstrom was able to save the trio of souls, Set as well as Hecate and Amon fell before the savage assault of the demons.
