Anubis

The ancient Egyptians referred to Anubis as the "Lord of the hallowed land". They believed the land of the dead was thought to be in the west, this is where they believed Anubis lived. He was generally known as a black jackal-headed man, or as a black jackal.

The Egyptians would have noticed the jackals roaming around the graveyards, and so the link between the animal and the dead was formed in their minds.
