Anpu (Anubis) is the bastard child of Nebt-Het (Nephthys), born of her clandestine union with Asar (Osiris) but raised as the son of Suti (Set). As he grew to manhood it became obvious that Anpu was not of Suti's ilk, showing a streak of melancholic compassion that could only be attributed to the blood of his true and secret father. Anpu was cast out when his true nature was discovered, and left to his own solitary devices.
Now the haunter of dark and lonely places, a wanderer through the shadow-realm between life and death, Anpu bears witness to the darker side of mortality. He seeks out those lost souls who find themselves without guidance after their demise. All who die will eventually find themselves in the presence of this enigmatic god, who silently will lead them away from this world and to the gates of the next.
