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
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.
It is said that only those who journey close to the Veil of Shadow might glimpse the mask worn by the Lord of the Underworld, and when they do, they shall be forever changed…
