| Actually, Anubis aligned with Isis and helped her reform Osiris, that's why he's known as the God of Embalming and also he ferries the dead to face trial by Osiris. |
Anubis ferries the dead? In that case, he's the equivalent of Charon from Greek myth!
yes anubis is very much like charon or hermes, however he had more responsibilities besides just ferrying the dead. Anubis was the god who decided the fate of souls, and whether or not they were permitted to pass on into the underworld. He is also the god of mummification and the protector of the dead, which is why he appears in most Egyptian tombs.
