|~ Death says to Adrian|
Maveth, or Death, is an ancient, immensely powerful Primordial Entity. He is the personification of Death and the polar opposite of Life. Death is the final of the Four Horsemen and the ruler and creator of the Veil, the realm in between the Afterlife realms that also exists beside and apart from Creation. Death is responsible for maintaining the cycle of Life and Death and keeping the Natural Order. He is the younger brother of God and The Darkness, the older twin of Sephira, and the older brother of Asherah. Despite being an active member of Creation, Death has not manifested himself in the Physical realms of Creation before the Apocalypse. He only appeared during Noah’s Flood and before that, the First Cosmic War.
Like SEPHIRA and Shekhinah, Maveth was born from the interplay of Ayin and Yesh. Unlike his sister, who drifted towards the IS of Yesh, he drifted towards the IS NOT of Ayin while their sister stayed in between forming MAYBE. Like his siblings, he sided with Yesh during his final war against Ayin before Creation began.
After Creation began, he used a creation of his Brother's called the Soul. From the Soul, he fashioned his servants and creation the Archreapers and Reapers. He is also the Creator of the Veil, the destination souls go upon death before they are assigned to their afterlife realm. Here, souls are wiped of their memories upon entering their respective afterlives.
Billions of years after Creation began, Death was called by his Brother to destroy all terrestrial life on Earth in a torrential flood after God had found humans to be morally reprehensible. Death nodded before flooding the Earth and returned to the center of the Veil after it was finished. Since then, Death has not been seen until he is forcefully summoned and bound by his niece to do her bidding.
Death is rarely seen in Creation as he mostly keeps within the Veil. Even then, he lacks a true physical form, being the infinite, featureless concept of Death itself and thus, needs to use avatars to interact with Creation. When Death manifests in the physical realms/Assiah, he takes the appearance of a man in his mid to late twenties. He has onyx black hair and onyx colored eyes. Death wears a black high collar robe with a gold trim and a long flowing white toga wrapped around his waist. His ring is silver with a white gemstone in the middle. When angered or using his power, his eyes flash red with a black ring.
Death’s true form is incomprehensible to most beings. His true form appears as a massive male humanoid mass of black and orange mist that kills seemingly everything in comes in contact with. His entire form appears to be made entirely of this churning fog of deathly mist.
Due to his age and extreme power, Death is extremely detached from the rest of Creation. Death is incredibly stoic and nearly emotionless. He views the events in Creation such as The Holy War and The Apocalypse as insignificant despite his coerced involvement by his niece. Death seems to view life forms in Creation as unimportant going so far as to compare Percy to bacterium showing that he views life in Creation as humans view bacteria. When Cassiel gained great power rivaling the Cosmic Gods, Death showed no interest, viewing her as insignificant as every other being in Creation. Even in the Apocalypse, he did not care about only showing vague interest leading to his tendency to wander off. Death hates being bound as seen when he expressed his annoyance at being bound to his niece.
Despite his seemingly uncaring attitude, Death has assisted in certain events in Creation. He gave Adrian his ring and his blessing in order to assist in his fight against Lucifer. Death also created another eclipse to banish the souls back to Purgatory. Death is a staunch upholder of the Natural Order. He explains to Adrian after he was Death for a day that breaking the order in even the most microscopic way could create untold chaos upon the rest of Creation. Death also seems to care greatly about his twin sister, children, nephews, and nieces. In addition, Death holds great respect for his elder siblings expressing guilt upon his elder sister’s sealing. Death displays great anger at those who disrupt the Natural Order. This makes Eden Squad’s resurrections annoyances to him stating that he only makes “an exception once but never twice”. However, he holds great respect for them stating that he was honored to be reaping Ruby herself. Death seems to be very fond of what Natalia Mariner refers to as “cheap food”.
Death has no qualms about killing others. He seems to be unfazed and possesses an uncaring attitude at the death of other beings. Death simply views it as just something that happens in Creation. He didn’t even bat an eyelash to the death of a rude businessman who bumped his shoulder.
