“The Great Veil & Grand Mystery of All Ages must persist. Only those divinely tasked may be granted small gifts of our knowing so that they may fulfill their destiny. Only those pure of heart and mind may glimpse the inner secrets. Eternity must remain shrouded. I, Anput, Sentinel of Secrets, Keeper of the Veil, Warden of Providence , Guardian of Lore, I.. am the Will of the Gods made flesh.”

Comic Character Mythology:
In this incarnation, the ancient goddess and sage Anput has been chosen to keep hidden the secrets of the Underworld and other forbidden knowledge from mortals who would seek such esoteric truths and transcendent magicks for their own unrighteous & selfish gain. Many are those who would dissolutely pervert the natural order to acquire undeserved power, longevity, control and material wealth through exploitation of the otherworldly Lore. Anput guards against these foolhardy attempts at self aggrandizement and preserves the intended balance. Her enemies are the pawns and inter-dimensional forces of Stagnation and Corruption. Granted the ability to manipulate physics, the elements, and psychic-spiritual energy through magical invocations, seals and sigils, she devastates enemies and blesses allies.
Anput seeks out natural Adepts and those fated to play an influential role in the enactment of Divine Will to bestow upon them the knowledge and courage needed to follow the Path of the Illuminated; a path guided by the subtle whispers of the Immortals.

Historical Background:
In ancient Egyptian religious mythology, Anput was the female depiction or wife of Anubis. Anubis was a half-human half-jackal god of the afterlife and Underworld. In addition to being a protector of the deceased, their resting places and patron of lost souls, Anubis was known as the ‘Guardian of the Scales’ who weighed the heart of the dead against the feather of truth or “Maʻat”, to judge a soul’s worthiness to enter the Underworld.
