The power to be the embodiment of death. Sub-power of Death Derivation. Variation of Concept Embodiment. Not to be confused with Lethal Physiology or Death Aspect Manifestation.

Also Called

  • Death Incarnate
  • Death Manifestation
  • Death Personification/Personification of Death
  • Mortality’s End Embodiment
  • The Death Bringer

Capabilities

The user of this power is death itself or a personification of death representing it. Death Embodiment is notably able to ignore most forms of Immortality because it's the omnipotent personification of Death, possessing near unlimited control over it, ultimate knowledge of everything related to it and being everywhere Death is being second most powerful death-based ability and similar powers.

Unlike Death Derivation, the personification of death isn’t the source of death nor do they just hold connection necessarily with it, but they are a rare sentient being that manifests itself as everything death is. This allows them to kill virtually anything, hold dominion over the dead, possess influence over the fate of the deceased in the afterlife and much more.
