Disciplines - Introduction

The ruler and creator of the Underworld, Death is the son of Priam and Abraxiel, brought into existence as a last act of the Lords of Heaven and Hell before the creation of mankind. Though his will is absolute within his realm, Death spends a great deal of his time pursuing, studying, and experimenting with fragments of the soul energy known as etherea. While Heaven and Hell squander this energy to fuel their eternal battle, it is Death alone who recognizes the true power. It is with this knowledge that Death builds his Court and his kingdom, a kingdom that balances chaos and order, lightness and dark. A kingdom built upon the foundation of one unspoken principal – Rise. Conquer. Rule.®

Gethsemoni - Queen of the Dead

Gethsemoni

Queen of the Dead

Human nature has forever been a mystery to Death, and to explore this he created his first borne, Gethsemoni, the leader of the Faction of Flesh, and the Queen of the Dead. Despite Gethsemoni having been forged from raw etherea, she was infused with the indirect imprint of the hundreds of human souls that passed through Death’s curious fingers. By design, the Queen is perhaps one of the most human of Death’s creations, with the intention that she be best suited to understand her subjects. To ensure that she developed as a truly autonomous being, Death has regretfully been forced to distance himself from her, an act that causes Gethsemoni both pain and resentment.

Xiall - The Great Osteomancer

Xiall

The Great Osteomancer

Death sought to create a being of precision, one that would respond to the chaos of the mortal world, and impose structure and order in its place. He infused Xiall with an inordinate amount of raw etherea, giving her the power of insight that rivals even his own, and making her worthy of her titles as the leader for the Faction of Bone, and the Chancellor of Osteomancy.

Kier - Valkyrie of the Dead

Kier

Valkyrie of the Dead

Kier is the daughter of Heaven that Death made his own. As he brought the lost Valkyrie into his Court, and named her leader of the Faction of Spirit, Death has forced himself to recognize that the entities in Heaven and Hell are not enemies to be purged, but instead a natural part of the balance that he so desperately craves. Unfortunately, much of this lesson has been lost on Kier herself, who burns with an unquenchable thirst for vengeance against those of Heaven that cast her out.

Sideshow is proud to introduce Death: Master of the Underworld, an original character design from our Court of the Dead Premium Format™ figure collection.

“The light will forcefully define you. While in darkness, anything is possible.”

Death is feared in the Mortal Realm as the grim reaper of souls. While it is true that he ushers soulborn along to Heaven or Hell, that is but a mere fraction of the larger, more horrifying truth. Neither salvation nor damnation awaits mortals in Heaven and Hell. Death delivers human souls to a life of servitude in the eternal war between Heaven and Hell. Death himself struggles against his own base, destructive nature. He desires to become a Shepherd of Souls, guiding mortals to a truer spiritual balance, instead of eternal war. And so, Death, master of the Underworld, is biding his time. The Alltaker – for that is what he is known as in the land of the dead – is carefully, steadily, secretly plotting a rebellion against the fanatical Celestial Realms.
