Anubis

Anubis was a jackal-headed deity who presided over the embalming process and accompanied dead kings in the afterworld. When kings were being judged by Osiris, Anubis placed their hearts on one side of a scale and a feather (representing Maat) on the other. The god Thoth recorded the results, which indicated whether the king could enter the afterworld. Anubis is the son of Osiris and Nephthys.
