Anubis is widely known as the Egyptian deity of mummification. In this role, he oversees the mummification process of the dead, and is usually seen in hieroglyphic tomb-carvings as overseeing the burial ritual for the pharaohs and those of royal lineage - this is due to the priest involved wearing the masks of Anubis to symbolize him as the overseer of the ritual.

His place in the Judgement Arcana comes from the ancient Egyptian belief that those passing into the afterlife were judged by him using a scale to see if the deceased's heart (lightened by good works or weighed down by sins) was as light as a feather.
