The Grim Reaper is the Face of Death

The Grim Reaper is the fictional personification of death. He is also known as the Lord of Death. He roams the world dressed in a long, black or blood red robe with a hood. Sometimes you can see a skeletal face. Other times, you only see a dark, empty space in the hood. The Lord of Death carries a long handled scythe(or sickle).  Representing the devil himself, he comes at or near death. His mission is to take bad and evil people to hell (also known as Hades).

In some European depictions of the Grim Reaper, he is dressed in a white robe. Or, you may also see him in a green robe. A skeletal face may or may not be visible.

Grim Reaper with Scythe

Can you run? Can you hide... from the Grim Reaper?

Is he coming to getcha!? As the Devil’s advocate, he knows when a bad person is about to die.  He comes up from the underworld of lost souls, and seeks out the soul of the person. So, you certainly can run. But, you can’t hide. There is no escaping him, as he goes about his job, joyfully reaping souls for Satan. 

However, if you are good, you have nothing to fear.

Did You Know? Grim Reaper costumes are popular on Halloween and at parties.
