Literally means "guide of the soul". A psychopomp is a conductor of people's souls who have passed, on escorting them to an afterlife. Depending on your beliefs, can be a god such as Odin or Anubis, an animal spirit such as a Raven, an Angel or Valkyrie, a loved one who has crossed over, or perhaps the most well known psychopomp of them all...the Grim Reaper.
In Greek mythology Charon was the ferryman of Hades, conducting the souls of the dead, as any psychopomp would, to their destination.
