Anubis

Anubis
Indeed, you are 79% erudite, 62% sensual, 33% martial, and 87% saturnine.
Anubis was the Egyptian
God of funerary rituals and the protector of the dead as well as the
judge of souls and ruler of the underworld. Since it was his duty to
weigh souls (along with the Goddess Maat) as a means of discovering the content of honesty, Anubis was also the God of truth.

He is usually seen as a man with the head of a jackal holding the
divine sceptre carried by kings and Gods, but he can also be found on
the walls of tombs as a black jackal or dog accompanying Isis.
By no means an evil God, his domain of graves and tombs was
nevertheless a frightening one, but then, one that offered the chance
of an afterlife.

The God of the dead is probably associated with the jackal due to the
habits of jackals to lurk about tombs and graves, which was one of the
reasons why the early Egyptians sought to make their tombs more
elaborate; to keep the bodies safe from the jackals. It is only natural
therefore that a God of mummification would be connected with them. By
worshipping Anubis, the Egyptians hoped to invoke him to protect their
deceased from jackals, and later, the natural decay that unprotected
bodies endure.
