Somebody recently asked you who Anubis's parents are, and you said that you didn't know. According to my memory (which may be a little inaccurate, admittedly), in Egyptian mythology, Anubis was the child of Osiris by Nephythys (Set's wife).

Of course, that may not quite be the case in the Gargoyles Universe, since legends don't always necessarily match up to truth. (Some of the pre-Shakespearean legends about Oberon make him the son of Julius Caesar and Morgan le Fay, which obviously isn't the case in the Gargoyles Universe, given that:

a. we already know that Oberon's mother is Queen Mab rather than Morgan le Fay.
b. While we don't know who Oberon's father was, he obviously wasn't a human (I can't imagine Oberon having a drop of mortal blood in him), which Caesar was.
c. Julius Caesar was assassinated about five hundred years before Morgan le Fay's birth - assuming that she was indeed born in the 5th century A.D., as per tradition - making any union between them chronologically impossible - not to mention the further chronological muddle of both of them post-dating Theseus and Hippolyta's wedding).

Yeah, the whole son of Caesar and Morgan thing doesn't work for me AT ALL.

As for Anubis, I'll take your word for that FOR NOW. If and when it comes up for story reasons, I'll do some more research, and reach my own conclusions.
