Death. It's almost as old as life. Everybody dies eventually. Death is everywhere. Every day there are new germs, toxins, injuries, illnesses and catastrophes for us to face. The fact we survive at all is miraculous.
On the other side of death stand the Reapers. Reapers used to be human, then death came knocking, taking those who dies in the most gruesome, bloody or downright horrific manners to their boss, Lou.
Lou was the first Reaper. He was doing a great job until humanity spread too wide for him to continue to work alone. Therefore, he began recruiting others to be Reapers. As the ages changed, the cycle of Reapers did as well.
Lou no longer Reaps but watches the Reapers like the owner of a company. They report to him and bring souls for other possible Reapers.
Working alongside the Reapers are Seers, people who can gaze through the veil between the world of the living and the realm of the dead, and Witches, humans who can utilize Reaper abilities. Both types were visited by Lou because they were stillbirths or infant deaths. Seers lost their physical sight and was granted life and sight into the spiritual realm instead as well as the ability to create weak barriers for short periods of time while Witches grow without a limb or some other physical deformity.
Reapers, when chosen by Lou, appear in a white room. In the room is a man in a red suit with a black tie, slicked back hair and lively blue eyes. He is Lou.
"You have been chosen as the new wave of Reapers." Lou said, smiling slyly. He was in 4 rooms, all identical, all pure white and empty. Before him stood the new Reapers. "Name, age and a quick description of yourself." He held a clipboard in his left hand and an ancient quill between the fingers of his right. "I'm joking." he smirked. "I know who you are and who you think you are. You're hired if you accept." He raised his now empty hands, smiling as 3 engraved tablets rose from the ground.
To the right of Lou, the tablet held a bow and a rifle in an X behind a small pistol.
To the left stood a pumpkin, a skull and a glowing orb of light in a triangle, the skull at the top.
In front of him was a sword, scythe and hammer in a 6-point star.
"Choose your class." he said, lowering his arms from sight.
