egyptian monster: anubis..

Anubis (Picture)

Anubis was a man with the head of a jackal. unlike a real jackal, his head was black, representing his position as the god of the dead. Anubis protected the dead n bring them to the afterlife, a patron of mummification. based on the Egyptians, the reason for Anubis being half a jackal was because dogs n jackals often hunted at the edges of the desert, especially the cemeteries where the dead were buried.
