So in case you haven’t heard my theory yet, here it is: Random Game-Generated Theory?
It started out as a fun idea, but after seeing @Endercore79_is_back 's theory about Omarn and Pender, I decided to elaborate mine too.
A long time ago, Death resided in the realm of Hell. Upon seeing humankind, and lurking amongst them for millennia, Death sought to become like one of them. His first attempt, in which he assumed the shape of man, proved unsuccessful, since a spirit can take the shape of anything, but never truly become anything else. A spirit will always be a spirit.
So instead, he called out to his minions, and commanded them to take the resources of the mortal world and forge a suit of golden armor for him. Because Hell is the darkest place in the Universe, his minions also found some lenses to adjust the light of Earth so Death could see.
The moment he landed in the mortal realm, a master ranger with a rifle spotted him and recognized him instantly. The ranger shot at Death, hitting him in the left eye. The force of the bullet not only shattered the left lens and knocked him unconscious, but also erased much of his memory. The last thing Death could remember was the day after the unfortunate incident, when he woke up lying on the hard, icy ground of Kelvintaph Glacier. Since man first discovered him, and took him to be a foreign human warrior, Death assumed that he was one of them, and supported man ever since. The people called him Aknash, which in the tongue of Kelvintaph means “half-blind”.
Yet, over time, he remembered the ranger who had robbed him of half his sight. His first thought was to slay all of mankind, but he had lived among them too long to hate them. So instead he unleashed his fury upon the ogres, who were at that time invading all of Earth under their leader, Thoktar. The people then began to call him Ritic the Cold. Ritic, in their language, meant “merciless”, and he was given the epithet “the Cold” because of that.
And to this day, Death, alias Ritic the Cold, continues to roam about the land and slay ogres, Shadow being his steed, Fear his weapon, and Night his shield.
