Death of Rats

573pages on

The Death of Rats was a rodent version of Death, who also specialised in guinea pigs. He appears exactly as one
would expect- just like Death, but instead of a human skeleton he possesses that of a rodent. He appears alongside Death in multiple illustrations.

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

He/She often consorts with a raven, possibly one of Blind Io's before they were decommissioned.
