Hey all!

So Death is back (and will be working at Caritas). I think most of you either know the canon, remember her from her last go-round on the island five years ago, or both, so here are the essentials. There's a bit of a deeper dive in her original info post from way back when, though parts of that are specific to the human form called Didi as opposed to Death herself.
  • She is death. Literally. Well, if you want to get technical about it, she's more of a universal life-death force thing, but for some reason most people are mainly interested in the part where she takes your hand and escorts you to the afterlife.
  • If you think your character would either recognize her as one of the Endless, or sense that she isn't exactly human, go for it. It's not a secret.
  • People here know her as Didi, so that's what she'll go by. In part because introducing yourself as Death doesn't tend to make you a hit at parties.
  • Her powers are effectively unlimited; the Endless follow plenty of rules, but there's little or nothing they actually can't do. That said, she's not in the habit of interfering in mortal affairs, and she's not going to start on the island.
  • Theoretically, she's almost omniscient, though not telepathic. (E.g., she knows what people do but not necessarily how they feel about it.) In practice on the island, given all the different universes in play and my lack of desire to godmod, she's normally only going to know things that anyone else could know too. That said, if you want her to amuse/confuse/slightly wig out your character by, say, calling them by name when she first meets them or asking about their dead father or offering to buy them a slice of their favorite anchovy-pineapple pizza, let me know OOC and I'll do it.
  • She is basically the best and most loving friend anyone could have. And she'll keep being that way no matter what.

Just had to catch the bandwagon before it leaves town.

Two things are true about Didi. She is a 16-year-old Goth girl from New York whose family died a few months ago in an accident -- and she's the immortal anthropomorphic embodiment of Life and Death itself. Confusing? Not if you're her.

See, in Sandman, Death -- one of the seven Endless, and if I try to explain that this post will become a novel, so here, have a Wiki page -- spends one day a century as a mortal so she understands the price humans pay. In the 20th century, her day was a summer day in New York City, which she spent as Didi. She got through it, fell into a fountain to die and go back to being all quasi-omnipotent ... and got transported to Fandom in 2009 instead.

The school has its ways of attracting students.

Powers and whatnot in handy bullet points. )

Everyone else in age order:

Tara Maclay, who is not really much for the timber. )

Jack Priest, who says that all he did was flirt. )

Romeo Montague, who thinks he's fortune's fool. )

Angela Chase, who sometimes feels her life going somewhere )

Tyler Durden, who says your life is ending one minute at a time. )

Elisabeth, who is very flaily about playing Death )
