Xanthos must carry out Death’s will. He aid’s the fallen into there eternal rest and also makes contracts with new puppets along the way.
Sneak peek of the puppet master’s promise between death and his sister
“Where are you going..?” She whispered softly, so softly i could barely hear the pain in her tone. Everybody asked the same question, and it’s always the same answer. ” I go where death bid’s me to go…” I said, my tone unreadable as i looked into the distance. “I am death’s shadow, nothing more, and nothing less..”
Characteristics of Xanthos:
He was branded with death’s eternal flames, that flicker from time to time in his eyes.
He never ages.
He tends to talk with a large vocabulary. He also tends to talk old fashioned.
Puppet’s are humans who are afraid of death, they are soulless being’s who walk the earth waiting for the puppet master’s order’s and for the puppet master to release there souls, so that they may finally be judged by death.
The judge of life and death. His job is simple enough. He must balance the world with good and evil, like how mother earth balances the earth.
There are 2 messenger’s in Death’s party. The white swan and the black crow. They give the puppet master a list of who to take and where they are.
