My love for the mortals who extoled me reignited my passion for my original purpose. Regardless, it was a challenge to reconcile myself with the task of appraising their sins, bringing the souls of those for who I truly cared down to the world below. Each time I encountered a sinner, my heart sunk like lead. Yet I escorted them as was my duty, and thus the Finder of Paths came to be seen in a whole new light.
Ophois is a Greek name for god Wepwawet. In late Egyptian mythology, Wepwawet (also rendered Upuaut, Wep-wawet, Wepawet) was originally a war deity, whose cult centre was Asyut in Upper Egypt (Lycopolis, meaning "city of wolves", in the Greco-Roman period). His name means, opener of the ways and he is often depicted as a wolf standing at the prow of a solar-boat. Some interpret that Wepwawet was seen as a scout, going out to clear routes for the army to proceed forward.
Over time, the connection to war, and thus to death, led to Wepwawet also being seen as one who opened the ways to, and through underworld, Duat, for the spirits of the dead. Through this, and the similarity of the jackal to the wolf, Wepwawet became associated with Anubis, a deity that was worshiped in Asyut, eventually being considered his son. Anubis is the Greek name of a jackal-headed god associated with mummification and the afterlife, protector of the dead and also god of funerals and death. One of his prominent roles was as a god who ushered souls into the afterlife. He attended the weighing scale during the "Weighing of the Heart," in which it was determined whether a soul would be allowed to enter the realm of the dead.
In Egyptian mythology, Duat (also Tuat and Tuaut or Akert, Amenthes, Amenti, or Neter-khertet) is the realm of the dead. The Duat is the realm of the god Osiris and the residence of other gods and supernatural beings. It is the region through which the sun god Ra travels from west to east during the night, and where he battled Apep. It also was the place where people's souls went after death for judgement, though that was not the full extent of the afterlife.
