Anubis, The Adopted

Adopted son of Isis, Egyptian god of the dead and embalming. Gave up his position of the Dead Ruler to Osiris after the unification of the Ennead and Ogdoad families (the ancient religions of Upper and Lower Egypt). Has become Horus' right hand man in Egypt, functioning as a go-between for Horus and his father/past self. Although Set was considered his father, there is reason to suspect that distinction is truely Osiris'.
