Anubis is the god of mummification in the Osirian pantheon. He protects tombs and the souls of the dead on their way to receiving Pharasma's judgement in the Boneyard.[1]

Appearance

Anubis appears either as a jackal or a jackal-headed, black-skinned human.[1]

Cults

Nearly all Osirian tombs contains images of Anubis. The patron of embalmers, his followers (including paladins) usually wear jackal masks and are dedicated to the destruction of undead.[1]

Relationships

Anubis is the son of Osiris and Nephthys, born out of wedlock and he assisted Isis in the mummification of his father. He frequently works with Isis, Neith, Nephthys, and Selket in the protection of the dead, and is an enemy of Set due to his association with undead.[1]
