Mrtyu is a psychopomp usher, patron of soldiers and victims of murders or suicides. A passionate being in contrast to most denizens of the Boneyard, he embraces the souls of those who died in extreme emotion, and views every malcontent undead creature as a personal failure.[1][2]


In his mortal life, Mrtyu was a soldier, and the first person who died with love on his lips. Pharasma, intrigued by the concept, wooed Mrtyu, and through him she came to understand mortal feelings.[1]


Mrtyu's realm, the Garden Anima, lies within Pharasma's Court, and serves as a refuge for souls that need solace after death.[1]


Mrtyu looks almost unchanged from his mortal days, as a handsome young man with dark, sunken eyes adorned in rock rose blossoms. A vast wound in his stomach constantly bleeds. On his hands, he carries a basket of fruit or flowers and his rusted greatsword Ardor.[1]


Mrtyu holds an intimate, emotional connection to Pharasma, and often works with the Pale Horse to ward off threats to her.[1]
