Aliases: The Jackal, The Last Sight
He is often referenced as “The Last Sight” meaning those
who have the misfortune to see Anubis will most likely never
see another thing again.
As an immortal, Anubis has been drawn to the finite world of mortals within the land of Geb. Like Lord Atum and Seth before him, Anubis is also fascinated with the secrets of NUN. His fascination however, has taken him in a different direction than his immortal brothers. Anubis believes that only death can shed light on life, and enable him to learn the secrets of NUN.
Consequently, being unable to bring a final death to an immortal, Annubis began to search for the secrets of NUN through the deaths of mortals throughout the land of Geb. Annubis’s reputation as a harbinger of death grew rapidly amongst mortals. So much so, that he is often referenced as “The Last Sight” meaning those who have the misfortune to see Anubis will most likely never see another thing again.
Anubis’s desire for the secrets of NUN can only be matched by his desire for the goddess Isis. A desire so strong, that it was Anubis who assisted Seth in his plot to retrieve the Sword of Atum and kill his rival Osiris.
