Death is the anthropological personification of mortality on Discworld. He is a recurring character in many Discworld stories, and a popular guest character in Discworld fanfic. Death has a deep voice, a pleasant demeanor, and he like cats. In written works, he speaks in ALL CAPS!


Death appears in every Discworld novel expect for Wee Free Men and Snuff.

He is the main character or an important character in five discworld novels; Mort, Reaper Man, Soul Music, Hogfather, and Thief of Time. These books are commonly grouped together in the Death (Discworld Sub-Series).
