We all know that Harold was chosen as Death as the first human to die on Gielinor and theory would have it that it was Guthix that did the choosing. Though other sources would say it's the first sentient to die that becomes Death, to shepherd others, a natural occurrence. Ingore the Guthix choosing for now as a myth.


The way I see it is that Harold became Death when he died of old age (as the stained glass depicts). However, Guthix saw that this was a lot of power for one person, so he bound his power to the scythe. I don't think Death's restrictions are natural, rather that they were placed on him by Guthix to maintain balance. Look at his dialogue in The World Wakes

When Guthix appointed me as a guardian, I was given the task of retaining the balance of life and death - as well as the power to do so. With all great power, there must be balance, so Guthix also bestowed a weakness upon me.

Of course, this was probably before the newer Death lore, notice how he says Guthix gave him his powers, but it makes sense. Perhaps Death merely believes his power comes from Guthix.

I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?
- We call it being a hero.

No reservations, just more questions than answers!

Though this scenario could explain our odd state, and why we keep coming back. You can't kill Death.:P

Though there's the issue that Death cannot kill what is not yet ready to die.
We kill many things.


How do you know they're not ready to die when we kill them?
