Werejackals are lycanthropes from desert realms where the Egyptian god Anubis is worshiped.  Often the result of a terrible curse of some ancient Pharaoh or Priest of the Gods of Egypt, the werejackal is cursed to become part man part jackal by night when "Nephthys shows her face during the night."  The form is in the express image of Anubis.  Werejackals are affected by the weapons of Nephthys: weapons fashioned of silver, taking lethal damage.  Other weapons stun the creature or do minimal damage.  They are often human at any other time of the day, except when the curse of Pharaoh or the priests of Anubis comes upon them.
