    Anubis
    Indeed, you are 79% erudite, 42% sensual, 46% martial, and 67% saturnine.

    Anubis was the Egyptian God of funerary rituals and the protector of the dead as well as the judge of souls and ruler of the underworld. Since it was his duty to weigh souls (along with the Goddess Maat) as a means of discovering the content of honesty, Anubis was also the God of truth.
    He is usually seen as a man with the head of a jackal holding the divine sceptre carried by kings and Gods, but he can also be found on the walls of tombs as a black jackal or dog accompanying Isis. By no means an evil God, his domain of graves and tombs was nevertheless a frightening one, but then, one that offered the chance of an afterlife.

    But why did the Egyptian God of the Dead have the head of a jackal? Well, jackals have the uncomfortable habit of lurking about tombs and graves, which was one of the reasons why the Egyptians sought to make their tombs more elaborate; to keep the bodies safe from the rather smart black canines. It is only natural therefore that a God of mummification would be connected with them. By worshipping Anubis, they hoped to invoke him to protect their deceased and assure their safe journey through the underworld, his domain.

    Pan

    Indeed, you are 63% erudite, 71% sensual, 67% martial, and 75% saturnine.

    Some people have extremely sensitive nerves and tend to become startled very easily. For this we can thank the God Pan who, according to the Greeks, was responsible for the irrational terror that fills animals and humans alike. In fact we call it Panic in recognition of this weird God's twisted sense of humour.

    Pan was also the God of male sexuality which was made abundantly clear by portraying him with the features of a goat (well known for their fertility), from the waist on down.

    He kind of reminds me of the Horniwore here on OKCupid.

    And so does Cernunnos, the Celtic God of fertility, sexual love, the wilderness, and the Underworld. He had stag features and a wild side just like pan. The two have a lot in common. Being used as a blueprint for the Christian devil, for example. But we won't get into that now.

    Coyote

    Indeed, you are 67% erudite, 75% sensual, 33% martial, and 75% saturnine.
    Coyote was an important being to several Native American tribes. He was one of those tricksters that are found in several world mythologies, in fact very close in temperament and deed to Loki of the Norse pantheon.

    Eternally scavenging for food, he represents the most basic instincts, but in other narratives, he is also the father of the Indian people and a potent conductor of spiritual forces in the form of sacred dreams. In the ?Myth of the Stars and the Moon? he is shown as a wise counsellor even.

    There are more stories about him than stars in the sky. For example, did you hear the one about the ?Spying Moon?? It seems that someone had pinched the moon, and Coyote offered to stand in as replacement. Everyone agreed that he made a fine moon, but from his elevated position Coyote could see everything that was going on. Being of an irritating disposition, he couldn't resist blowing the whistle on friends and enemies alike. "Hey, look what Badger is doing behind his tepee!"

    Pretty soon everyone was sick of his snooping and voted him out of the sky. But nothing can keep Coyote down for long. Being an old show-off, he loves to impress the girls by juggling his eyeballs. One day he threw one so high it got stuck in the sky and became the star Arcturus. So even now he's keeping an eye on us all.

    Frey

    Indeed, you are 54% erudite, 71% sensual, 42% martial, and 42% saturnine.

    Frey was, just like his twin sister Freya, a member of the Vanir family and thus a God of fertility and love. Along with Odin and Thor he was one of the most popular Norse Gods, and received many offerings. He was said to have control of the weather, both rain and sunshine, thus the fertility of the earth. Prayers were also offered to Frey for a good future, peace and prosperity.

    Frey is described as being handsome, powerful, merciful and kind. Fitting considered he was - let's be frank - the God of sex. His cult included songs and actions which shocked contemporary and later Christians, who condemned them as indecent, which they of course were not to the participants in the cult themselves.

    Frey lived in Alfheim, "Elf-home", a name which indicates a possible connection between Vanir and Elves. His servant was the Goddess Beyla, who was all about bees and dairy. Not to far off, I think, as "Milk and Honey" and the things that Frey stands for are equally sweet.

    Mictlantecuhtli


    Indeed, you are 63% erudite, 29% sensual, 29% martial, and 83% saturnine.

    All right, I'll be honest. The Aztec God of the Dead had an awfully long name, not quite as intimidating as the names of his equivalents, Hades (Greek mythology) or Pluto (Roman mythology). Still Mictlantecuhtli was the Lord of Mictlan, the lowest layer of the Aztec Underworld, and looked the part.

    He took the form of a bloody skeleton, but basically he was a fairly nice guy who extended kind hospitality to the newly dead souls that ventured into his necropolis kingdom. However, he could get somewhat adamantine if you tried to steal one or more of his ?guests?, as Tezcatlipoca and Quetzalcoatl could tell you.

    Amun

    Indeed, you are 83% erudite, 71% sensual, 46% martial, and 42% saturnine.

    Amun was a mysterious God indeed. His very name basically means "what is hidden", "what is not seen", "what cannot be seen", and though even his form was said to be ?unknown?, he was depicted as a man with the head of a uraeus (cobra), or a man seated on a throne and holding in one hand the sceptre, and in the other the ankh.

    All secrets aside, what we do know is that Amun was the Egyptian King of the Gods, not unlike his counterparts Zeus (Greek mythology) and Odin (Norse mythology). With his ruling might over the Gods, Amun soon became associated with the Pharaohs.

    Being responsible for the creation of the world, it is not surprising that he was also the God of fertility, reproduction, and sexual power, and thus also the God of agriculture. With the combined powers of regeneration and royalty, Amun became linked to the sun and the great God Ra, becoming known as Amun-Ra, which pretty much consolidated his status as Supreme God.

    Anubis
    Indeed, you are 79% erudite, 50% sensual, 63% martial, and 71% saturnine.

    Anubis was the Egyptian God of funerary rituals and the protector of the dead as well as the judge of souls and ruler of the underworld. Since it was his duty to weigh souls (along with the Goddess Maat) as a means of discovering the content of honesty, Anubis was also the God of truth.
    He is usually seen as a man with the head of a jackal holding the divine sceptre carried by kings and Gods, but he can also be found on the walls of tombs as a black jackal or dog accompanying Isis. By no means an evil God, his domain of graves and tombs was nevertheless a frightening one, but then, one that offered the chance of an afterlife.

    But why did the Egyptian God of the Dead have the head of a jackal? Well, jackals have the uncomfortable habit of lurking about tombs and graves, which was one of the reasons why the Egyptians sought to make their tombs more elaborate; to keep the bodies safe from the rather smart black canines. It is only natural therefore that a God of mummification would be connected with them. By worshipping Anubis, they hoped to invoke him to protect their deceased and assure their safe journey through the underworld, his domain.
