Probably my favorite of the Egyptian pantheon. Like Hades from Greece, Anubis is often seen as the Egyptian version of the devil (although he's not the god of death, I should make that clear: that's Osiris's gig, but the confusion often arises because Anubis was the one who weighed the heart and decided the fate of the deceased). Many of Anubis's brothers and sisters sometimes acted very capriciously; like their Greek counterparts, they often shirked their duties, toyed with mortals like dolls, and did some pretty painful things to people. But I haven't heard of Anubis doing anything like that. Like Hades, he had a reputation for justice, not cruelty.
