"Pacem en Mortem, Timore en Mortem."
Translation from Latin: "Peace in Death, Fear in Death." This is me as my original character, Mortem, that I made for my final stage makeup exam.
Mortem is the female version of the Grim Reaper. Everyone sees her differently when they die. When people who were good and kind in their life, when they die, they see her as an hooded angel in black, with a beautiful face with curling black patterns on her cheeks and a white star in the middle of her black lips. She takes those good people by the hand and guide them to their Heavenly home. But to those who were evil and terrible in their life, when they die, she appears to them as a terrifying, wrath-filled skeleton, and send them to eternal prison of Darkness. Sometimes Mortem can see that it's not time for a person to die, so she gives them a kiss, and the star on her lips grants them life once more. But she can't give her Star Kiss of Life to everyone, no matter how much she wishes it, which is why she will sometimes cry tears of blood in sorrow for the many innocent souls who died unjustly from a tyrant or a plague. But she does promise justice to the innocent souls who had been slain by the evil. So when the evildoer dies, she terrifies them with her wrath and sends them to eternal darkness and torture forever, giving the innocent victims peace to their souls.
I am very VERY proud of this one!!
