In life, there are many questions without answers but there is only one truth so true that every one, every where, can agree upon it: Death.
No matter where you are in the world, nor what time you are in, Death is the one thing that has remained individually unchanged in beliefs. Not what happens after you pass, but what happens in the act of passing: You are lead away from the life you have led.
Death has been personified in many ways; from a man, or creature, who takes you into what comes next, to a figure who watches over our souls. No matter the religion, or spiritual mindset, Death has always remained the one to greet us at our demise.
For our benefit, we shall call him Artemis.
