Description Edit | History

Many cultures have personifications of death. There are singular death gods or manifestations such as Thanatos, Anubis, Yamaraja, or Death, or groups of entities such as the Norse Valkyries, the Irish banshee and dullahan, the Hindu yamadutas, or the Greek keres. There’s also a menagerie of hellhounds, ravens, owls, pale horses, moths, and similar death-omened beasts. Some are believed to foretell or cause death, but many others are psychopomps who facilitate the passage of the soul to an afterworld.
