Throughout cultures around the world there are figures that deliver the newly dead to the afterlife. They go by many names, Angels of Death, Psychopomps, Guides to the Afterlife, the list goes on. However, today we know them as reapers.
Some, such as Anubis, Dullahan, Xolotl, and Valkyrie are figures of legend, and then there is Pax.
Pax is a reaper not at all satisfied with his life. He went about his duties as anyone in his position would until he was met with special orders from on high. Now charged to inhabit the world of the living as a human in order to better understand those he reaps, he finds himself embroiled in a centuries old plan with someone else's life on the line.
