Character Description: Lord Death

As old as the Earth, Lord Death is the personification of Death itself! However, he is a noble god, and led an elite group of guardsmen – which included Asura and Eibon. However, when the paranoid Asura began to consume human souls and became the first kishin, Lord Death had to take extreme measures. He tore Asura's skin from his body, drained his blood and fashioned a bag to contain his remains and sealed them beneath the earth. He then bound his soul on the site Asura was buried – but as a consequence, Lord Death couldn't travel beyond his soul's boundaries!

Thus, Lord Death founded the Death Weapon Meister Academy (also known as the DWMA), training demon weapons and their meisters to combating kishin eggs. However, because of his fearsome appearance, Lord Death had trouble finding students for his school. So as a result, he changed the skull mask on his face into one less threatening. As well, he adopted a goofy-sounding voice in an effort to sound not as frightening!
