 Anubis is a jackal-headed god in ancient Egyptian religion. Anubis is known as the god of mummification and death (God of Dead),  
 protects the deceased and his tomb. Anubis is also known as Inpu, Anup, Anpu, and Ienpw. The oldest known mention of Anubis is in 
 the Old Kingdom pyramid texts, where he is associated with the burial of the Pharaoh. At this time, Anubis was the most important god 
 of the dead but he was replaced during the Middle Kingdom by Osiris. He takes names in connection with his funerary role, such as He 
 who is upon his mountain, which underscores his importance as a protector of the deceased and their tombs, Like many ancient 
 Egyptian deities, Anubis assumes different roles in various contexts, and no public procession in Egypt would be conducted without an
 Anubis to march at the head. Anubis is portrayed as the son of "Nephthys" and "Set", god of the desert and darkness. Anubis' wife is a
 goddess called Anput, his female aspect, and their daughter is the goddess Kebechet.
