The Typhonian Beast, Typhonian, or Sha, inspired by Egyptian iconography depicting an unidentified animal, is given a treatment as a Mythos creature in Malleus Monstrorum.
A strange, jackal-like creature with a long, curved snout, squarely-set ears, and tufted tail, which acts as a servant, guardian, and bearer of sacrifices for Set. It is possible for particularly intelligent Typhonians to learn and cast Mythos spells. The original animal has never been identified, but seems to have been regarded as a Psychopomp, a creature that leads or carries souls into the afterlife, and which might bear messages from the spirit world to the living.
