Half of this world and half of the life beyond, Drothmarr is more ancient and powerful even than the Great Beings...
About this creation
Name(s): Drothmarr. Deathlord. Spirit Rider. The Neverending. Location: Believed by some to be omnipotent. Visits all planets with life.
"I am alone. I am Unity.
I shall always be here. Neverending is my Duty.
I am immortal. I have no Destiny."
Drothmarr is a mysterious being who appears to the spirits of those who have recently died. His duty is to take the spirits of sentient bings to the afterlife - wherever that may be. Not even Drothmarr fully knows the extent of the ethereal realm, but to his knowledge, so far there are 129 different heavens, 374 different hells, 52 "purgatories" and a handful of rather more exotic locations (Like the big Lego Store in the sky). These places exist because sentient beings believe in them. This force of belief also governs his appearance.
The Death Lord is tied up in many myths and legends, where evil men had made arcane dealings with him to extend their lives, or, more popularly, he has allowed heroes to return and save the day. In truth, this rarely happens. People die when they die, and he takes them to where they believe they will go. A resurrection only happens if enough people believe it possible.
There are occasions when Drothmarr is seen by the living - generally those close to death who miraculously recover. They claim to have seen a shining silver figure astride a wolf, or a board (Toothrend is actually a combination of the two) dismount, and wait for them. Some even come back remembering abrasive sarcastic comments. Being the Deathord, Sarcasm and dry humour help keep the cold of the universe at bay. When a soul really does die, he will generally wish to converse with them.
Even Great Beings can die. Drothmarr serves all, from the lowliest matoran beggar to the Great Beings themselves. He is looked upon by most people as the most powerful entity in the universe. He isn't, but he is the only one who ever comes into contact with mortals.
A common good-luck or threat used by the Akonians is "Drothmarr have mercy on your soul."
The residents of the great Mata-Nui robot are cut off from Drothmarr.
On Necra-Magna, if Drothmarr maks it in time, a spirit can be rescued to the eathereal realm before the body reactivates. If he succeeds, you end up with the mindless undead that roam the surface. If he fails, you have an Imune tribesperson, warped and tortured while their body decays around them.
Surt, on Bara-Magna, uses an ancient ritual pact with Drothmarr to allow him to stay on the material plane. Once he finds and either kills or converts his brother Jormandgund, he will allow Drothmarr to take him.
((Drothmarr is loosely based of DEATH from the Discworld books, only more sarcastic and world-weary.
I made the first model of Drothmarr almost two years ago. He was one of my first MOCs on MOCpages, and is viewable here.
Drothmarr is a character of mine for my videos. I'm planning to introduce him to YouTube with a surprise video sometime soon...))
Mmmmmm, Death. =D Like the blue. Good addition, though it seems Pratchett's not the only person who believes that Death's eyes are blue.
Hey, I'm needing some help on an MOC...is there anywhere, like BZP, an IM, Skype, Facebook, email, that I could talk to you more in-depth on this, instead of just over comments on here? =P
