The Death of Rats was a rodent version of Death that came into being when Death went missing during Reaper Man, who also specialised in guinea pigs. They appears exactly as one
Death of Rats
would expect- just like Death, but instead of a human skeleton they possess that of a rodent. They appear alongside Death in multiple illustrations.

As an anthropomorphic personification, Death of Rats is able to project behaviour and emotion Death himself cannot. They mischievous and also escorts gerbils, hamsters and guinea pigs as well as rats. In Soul Music, Death of Rats also attended to the Head of the Musicians Guild, implying that being a rat in a metaphorical sense is close enough.

They often consort with a raven who acts as a translator, possibly one of Blind Io's before they were decommissioned.
