Capabilities[]

Users embody death or the dead. At the most fundamental level, users would possess key physical characteristics and/or personality traits related to the concept they're personifying, usually having a skeleton theme. Most users would firstly be exempt from death, and have roles related to guiding the dead or inducing it. Some users would also be able to manipulate death or the dead.

At the absolute level, users would hold supreme dominion over everything related to death and the dead in every conceivable and inconceivable way, such as being everywhere death is present, know everything related to the dead and possess limitless control over it. Additionally, true embodiments of death would be the prime source behind the concept itself, and everything affected by it, thus being virtually almighty and invincible.
