The death of rats is about six inches high, and as you have probably guessed is a rat skeleton. He wears a black robe and carries a small scythe just like Death. The death of rats has the same job as Death (keeping the dead in order and ensuring they go onto their next life). The difference here is that the death of rats specialises in rats and other small rodents i.e. mice, hamsters and gerbils. The death of rats can often be seen with a large black raven.
