You know you’re never supposed to humanise characters that evidently are not human in every non-physical way
But Death is essentially immortal. I mean even if you killed him in this physical form, he’s still going to be there to take lives and stuff.
War, Pestilence, Famine… They all contribute to Death.
Death is going to see the end of the Earth, the end of humanity, the end of everything including the God.
But once everything is gone, when there’s nothing else to end, what will become of Death? Can Death die?
I feel sort of sad for Death. Maybe he’ll never care, maybe he’ll get lonely, I have no idea. But I still feel sad for him.
