- Anubis (jackal headed Egyptian god)
The realm of sleep and dreams crossed into reality. Jill heard the sound of nails clicking her window and monsters fighting below. She awoke with a start and glanced at the window. A large butterfly sat on the corner, its blue iridescent wings shimmering in the moonlight. Jill smiled and closed her eyes but strange sounds continued to filter through. When she opened her eyes again a face watched her from behind the divided panes. Lips pulled back over sharp canines, dark cold eyes stared at her from the head of a jackal, like the Egyptian god Anubis. The growl its lips made shook the glass, penetrated the walls and caused her heart to stop.
