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.
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.
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.
