Anubis is a Child of Oberon who acted as Egypt's death god.

History

Xanatos sent the Emir and Jackal, Hyena, Wolf, and Coyote to Egypt to summon up Anubis in a chamber below the Sphinx to grant Xanatos immortality. The Emir summoned Anubis and magically held him prisoner, but the Emir had an ulterior motive: he wanted the god to restore his dead son to life. When Anubis refused, the Emir used the Scroll of Thoth to make himself an avatar of the death-god to resurrect his son himself.

Jackal, however, had become intrigued by Anubis and intercepted the lines of magic to become the avatar of Anubis. Giddy with his new powers, he planned to use them to wipe out all life on the planet, but the Emir, encouraged by Goliath, came to his senses in time, and used the Scroll of Thoth again to make himself Anubis' avatar. Undoing what damage caused by Jackal that he could, the Emir then sealed off the underground chamber so that nobody could ever summon Anubis again.[1] Anubis escaped his bond with the Emir, and was able to attend the Gathering on Avalon [2]


Characteristics

Anubis is a "death-god," but a responsible one. He takes his powers seriously, viewing them as part of the natural balance and not to be used lightly. In particular, he refuses to bring people back to life (such as the Emir's son), because he feels that it would be favoritism. (It is noteworthy that when the Emir was serving as Anubis' avatar, he could undo Jackal's artificial aging of Goliath, Elisa, Angela, and Bronx, and rejuvenation of Hyena and Wolf, but could not or would not restore what Jackal had actually destroyed.) He is so strongly connected with death, in fact, that while he was magically imprisoned by the Emir, nobody on Earth was able to die.

Anubis generally appears in the form of a man in ancient Egyptian garb with a jackal's head.

Quotes

  • "I grant but one boon, mortal, and it will be given to you as it is given to everyone; when your time has come."
  • "On the contrary, death is the ultimate fairness; rich and poor, young and old, all are equal in death."
  • "Death is always pointless... That is the point."
