|“|| When the first living thing existed, I was there, waiting.
When the last living thing dies, my job will be finished.
I'll put the chairs on the tables, turn out the lights and lock the universe behind me when I leave.
|~ Death of the Endless|
Death was the third of The Endless to appear in the comic book world, showing up as the older sister to Dream, she quickly became a fan favorite because of her personality and attitude and how it differs so much from what one might expect Death to be like.
Death, like her brothers Destiny and Dream seems to be far older than their younger siblings - at least in maturity - for when all things first came about they were alive. Originally, all those billions of years ago Death was very dark as one might expect her to be and mortals and gods alike trembled in her presence, for there was no light sparkling in her eyes, only the death they all knew would one day come for them.
This changed when she was given the privilege/duty to every one hundred years live one day as a mortal so that she could know what life is like and why so few wish to lose it. However, when Death does interact with anyone, both her siblings and those whose lives she must take, they always find her to be cheerful. Although she is known for the occasional outburst of anger (usually because of Dream's behaviour), it is a very rare occurrence and even though she is sometimes annoyed by those she finds herself interacting with, she is not known to be rude.
