Death is a male video game character that features in Darksiders.
Death was a male member of the Nephilim race who were the oldest and most powerful beings in the Universe after the time of Creation. During the earliest years of existence, it was decided that Mankind was to be given the prize of Eden. However, Absalom who led the Nephilim resented this decision and led his armies against Heaven as well as Hell in order to claim it for himself. For his actions, the Charred Council condemned the Nephilim to destruction but four of their race were granted a reprieve under the condition that they aid in the Council's victory over their kin. These Nephilim thus became the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse with Death being their leader where they slaughtered their people. Death came to hold the greatest burden of guilt for the extinction of race where he came to don the mask that represented his role as executioner of his brethren which had not removed since that time.
