"And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, 'Come and see!'
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and His name that sat on him was Death, and Hades followed with Him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with famine, with plague, with death, and with the beasts of the earth."

Being: Anthropomorphic and ultimate personification of Death.
Death meets with the recently deceased and guides them into their new existence. He also visits people as they are born, according to Destruction, evidently, only Death seems to remember these encounters.
Death appears as an attractive, pale, humanoid dressed in casual clothes - often a black top and jeans. He also wears a silver ankh on a chain around His neck, and has a marking similar to the eye of Horus around His right eye.
Death is pleasant, down-to-earth, and has been a nurturing figure for both incarnations of Dream. Though several billion years ago, He had a markedly different personality-- forbidding and joyless.
Death's Realm/Domain is not portrayed in detail, except for a brief scene in His "house". This is where He keeps His collections, and possibly His gallery. A brief glimpse of Death's realm can also be seen as He walks in open grasslands.
Death is not invisible; However, most people's brains refuse to acknowledge Death for who He is, unless He insists.
Death is efficient but not cruel, and sees His job as a necessary public service. His task is not to kill, but to collect. He harvests the old, worn-out souls of the dead.
Death is fond of cats, who can see Him at all time.
One day every century, Death lives [and dies] as a mortal, in order to understand the human race.
"When the first living thing existed,
I was there waiting.
When the last living thing dies,
My job will be finished.
I'll put the chairs on the tables,
Turn out the lights,
And lock the Universe
Behind Me as I leave."
