Anubis is Robin’s talisman. Anubis was the guardian of the dead, who greeted the souls in the Underworld and protected them on their journey.
It was he who deemed the deceased worthy of becoming a star. He also weighed the heart of the dead against the feather symbol of Ma’at, the goddess of truth.
One of the reasons that the ancient Egyptians took such care to preserve their dead with sweet-smelling herbs was that it was believed Anubis would check each person with his keen canine nose. Only if they smelled pure would he allow them to enter the Kingdom of the Dead.
