Anubis presides over those that would be chosen into Sobek's ranks. In exchange for his services, Anubis has been granted free reign to experiment over the secrets of the dead (of which knowledge is passed onto Sobek's Settite scribes for storage in their vast libraries).
In public Anubis always wears the Jackal headdress as prudent with his namesake. As with the other major vampires of the city, few see his actual features.
His Greek name is Anubarius, and is rumoured to be the childe of Hades – second to Cappadocius himself.
He is a practitioner of Necromancy, as most of the clan is fabled to know. But being one generation from Hades and thus only two from Cappodocius himself, he is exceptionally powerful.
