This slight, robed skeleton flickers in and out of reality, with a sickle cradled in its arms.

In Faerie the concept of death is foreign to many, particularly those in Oz. But for mortals who visit from the Prime plane and are not in Oz proper, there are beings who ensure that death comes to them. These death spirits hover around targets dying natural deaths, waiting to snatch them as they expire.

Immortal Foes. Immortals who guard their mortal charges hate and fear these beings, who they see as parasites and vultures of mortals. If no guardian is present to ward them off at the time of death, only granting immortality can thwart them, and of all the mortals in Faerie only Santa Claus has ever achieved this.
