The Edderan Chronicles
Grendas or The Soul Gatherer is the god of Death. No one has seen his face; he is only a dark figure beneath a long, black robe. He carries a tall scythe with a crooked wooden pole.
There are some who believe in the importance of death, others who wish a favorable reception when their life finally ends.
Death is as important to the balance on Edderan as life is. Death ultimately leads to renewal and life as it completes the circle. You upset this delicate balance when you try to cheat death and thus should expect harsh treatment.
