As such, translations of early novels sometimes refer to Death as a woman. This is generally changed, by the time of Reaper Man. Also, the personification of Death varies from country to country leading to further confusion, for example the Russian personification is that of an old woman, the Czech version uses a normally non-existent male variant of the usually female word for death for his name.
Explanations are given in footnotes, often with a pun. Like him they have become more human than their roles require. Death himself explains this in Thief of Time by saying that "form defines function.
With the exception of Thief of Time , the other Horsemen do not generally appear in the books focused on Death.
He is first seen as the overly-thoughtful son of a farmer in the Octarine Grass Country, near the Ramtops. Having proved himself unworthy as a scarecrow he is chosen by Death to be his apprentice.
Mort's father gave his consent, mistaking Death for an undertaker. Mort is described as being very tall and skinny, with muscles like knots in string.
He has a shock of bright red hair, and walks as if he is made entirely of knees. Mort starts off at the bottom, learning to accept his position while mucking out the stables , and trying to ignore Ysabell , Death's adopted daughter.
When Death feels in need of a break, Mort takes over The Duty. Unfortunately for Mort, his feelings for a teenage princess of Sto Lat get in the way of his job and he starts off a chain reaction of events by impulsively preventing her assassination.
Reluctant to tell his master about his gaffe , Mort tries various unsuccessful methods to fix the situation. After fighting and losing to Death, Mort is given an extra lease on life when the Grim Reaper chooses to turn over his Lifetimer, allowing Mort to stay in the world of the living.
After the events of Mort , Mort leaves Death's service and marries Ysabell. They subsequently meet their end after a freak accident sends their carriage plunging into a ravine, as revealed in Soul Music.
They had discussed this with Death and had turned down his offer to extend the duration of their existence, by letting them stay in his domain, on the grounds that it wouldn't be the same as actually lengthening their lives.
At one point, War calls out Death with " Mort " but we later learn that the only people in the room other than Twoflower were Death, Famine, Pestilence and War.
The name might be a possible reason as to why Death chose Mort as his apprentice especially as, when Mort first introduces himself to Death by name, Death's reply is What a coincidence.
Ysabell is the adopted daughter of Death, who saved her as a baby when her parents were killed in the Great Nef desert no explanation has been given as to why he did this; Ysabell said that "He didn't feel sorry for me, he never feels anything He probably thought sorry for me.
When first encountered she is a sixteen-year-old girl with silver hair and silver eyes who, it transpires, has been sixteen for thirty-five Discworld 'years' no time passes in Death's Domain.
During her encounter with Rincewind see below , her behaviour is sufficiently flamboyant as to cause him to believe she is "bonkers".
When Mort first encountered Ysabell, he was given the impression of "too many chocolates " though Pratchett notes that he would have described her as " Pre-Raphaelite " if he had ever heard the word.
She also has a fixation for the colour pink. Ysabell first appeared in The Light Fantastic , where she met Rincewind, and was surprised to learn that he was not actually dead.
This state of affairs might not have continued long if the Luggage had not intervened. During the events of Mort it became clear that Ysabell was competent in carrying out the work of her father including The Duty and 'doing the nodes'.
This mainly involves figuring out which deaths needed to be attended to personally, an important aspect of all reality. Before Mort arrived she shared her home with Albert , Death's manservant.
Susan Sto Helit is Mort and Ysabell's daughter and only child. When she first appears as a schoolgirl in Soul Music , Susan has just inherited the duchy on the death of her parents.
From the time she was a small child until the start of the book, when she is sixteen, her parents have hidden her background from her and brought her up to be logical, and it comes as a shock when the Death of Rats and Quoth the raven come looking for her.
She has to act as a stand-in for Death when he disappears, but subsequently returns to her education.
Despite the fact that she has inherited all of her grandfather's abilities, she longs to be normal, and gets human jobs, first as a governess in Hogfather , and then as a schoolteacher in Thief of Time.
Death is constantly dragging her back into the world of the occult. At the end of Thief of Time , she begins a relationship with Lobsang Ludd , the anthropomorphic personification of Time.
Albert originally known as Alberto Malich is Death's manservant, butler, and cook. Once a wizard and founder of the Unseen University , he attempted to gain immortality by reciting the Rite of AshkEnte a ritual to summon Death backwards, believing this would force Death to stay away from him.
Instead it brought him directly to Death's Domain. Since time in Death's Domain does not flow in the same way as it does on the Discworld , Albert succeeded, in a way, at gaining immortality.
Before returning to the world during Mort , "Albert" had 91 days, three hours and five minutes of Time left on the Disc, most of which he spent shopping and using the soap and baths at the " Young Men's Reformed Cultist of the Ichor-God- Bel-Shamharoth 's Association " Death is not very good at making plumbing.
As of Hogfather , he has only a few seconds left, and can no longer leave Death's side. Albert is a highly idiosyncratic cook, believing everything needs to be fried to get rid of the germs, including porridge.
Albert's childhood was touched upon lightly in Hogfather , revealing that he comes from a very poor family even by Ankh-Morpork standards. This novel also suggests that he is fond of pork pies with mustard and adores drinking sherry.
After the destruction of the statue in Mort , and the wizards' belief that the returned Albert was the statue, it is suggested that a new one be built in a very secure place—such as the dungeon allegedly to prevent it being defiled by students.
Alberto Malich was a powerful wizard, perhaps the most powerful a wizard can be though not likely a Sourcerer. This is reflected in how easily Albert devised a spell to slow the passage of time a near-impossible feat with Discworld magic indefinitely around a small area.
When Death goes missing in Soul Music , Albert tries to find him on the Disc, but gets robbed and his life-timer hourglass of life is broken.
After this incident, Albert has approximately 34 seconds left, and thus cannot return to the world of the living anymore, as Death cannot make his life longer.
The remaining sand is now kept in a bottle in Albert's bedroom. Albert is able to temporarily return to the Discworld during the events of Hogfather , although in this instance he merely inhabits the pseudo-reality created for the Hogfather to allow him to travel around the entire world in a single night, and hence is not actually in the world, strictly-speaking.
While Death and Albert seem to get on rather well, it is a fragile relationship. In Mort , Albert returns to the world to help Death, but seems ready to attack him when it looks like he has his former job as Archchancellor back.
He also seems not to trust Death with his life-timer, which is why he takes it with him in Soul Music , despite Death later reflecting that such an action was pointless as he would never have done anything to it.
Frequently, Albert finds himself trying to keep Death " on course " when his master becomes too human. He and Susan do not get on very well.
Binky is Death's steed, named so by Death because it is "a nice name". Binky is rather more intelligent than most horses and is pure, milky and white it is noted in some novels that Binky is an exception to the biological rule of "grey" equines.
He is well-treated, and loyal to his master and Susan. His shoeing is done by Jason Ogg , the Lancrastian blacksmith of mythical skill.
Death gave Susan a "My Little Binky" gift set for her third birthday. It was returned by her parents, fearing that it would make her a less "normal" child.
The Death of Rats , also known as the Grim Squeaker, is not, strictly speaking, a personification in his own right but rather an aspect of Death allowed an independent existence.
His purpose is to usher on the souls of dead rodents, as well as assisting Death in other ways. His jurisdiction also seems to cover certain kinds of "ratty" humans, such as Mr.
Clete in Soul Music , Mr. Pin in The Truth , and Mr. He was one of a disparate multitude of death-personifications created during Death's absence in Reaper Man.
The Death of Rats refused to be reabsorbed into Death himself upon the latter's resumption of his duties; therefore Death kept him around for company.
The Death of Fleas also escaped resorption, but has not been seen since Reaper Man. The Death of Rats resembles a rodentine skeleton walking on its hind legs, wearing a black robe, and carrying a tiny scythe, his form having taken shape from the latent form of Death himself in Reaper Man , as he came into existence in the vicinity of Bill Door.
He sometimes travels with a talking raven named Quoth who also acts as his translator. The Death of Rats, like Death, speaks in small caps , but has a vocabulary consisting of words such as Squeak, Eek, Ik and Snh , the last used when it laughs, although its speech can be interpreted from context much like the Librarian 's.
He hangs around with the Death of Rats. He was named Quoth by his previous owner, a wizard with no sense of humour who was attempting to make a joke by referencing the famous line in " The Raven " by Edgar Allan Poe.
Quoth refuses to give in to this stereotype by saying "the N word" Nevermore. At times he acts as steed and interpreter for the Death of Rats.
He has a constant craving for eyeballs a reference to ravens pecking the eyes out of corpses and frequently mistakes various other objects for eyeballs, such as olives and walnuts.
He was originally one of the ravens from the Tower of Art , the magical properties of which gave him his ability to speak.
He was first seen in Soul Music , and since then has made appearances in all novels involving Susan Sto Helit. Neil Pearson voices him in the Sky One adaptation of Hogfather.
The New Death is the old Death's replacement as a result of the plot by the Auditors to rid the world of sloppy thinking.
The New Death comes from human belief, but is quite different from the original, having been formed from modern Discworlders who think of death as being a malevolent force rather than the simple cessation of life.
Though he has the usual black robe, he is larger and has only smoke underneath his robe, rather than bones, and wears a crown, to the disgust of the original Death.
He rides the classic skeletal steed, in contrast to the special, but nevertheless very real, Binky. Instead of a scythe he wields a weapon "which may, at some point in its evolution, have incorporated aspects of a scythe, in the same way a scalpel incorporated aspects of a stick".
In place of a face or skull, the new Death wears a crown, and is prideful, dramatic, cold, and cruel; the literal embodiment of humanity's fear of death.
He chooses to arrive exactly at midnight and appears in a flash of lightning purely for the dramatic effect, something the old Death finds demeaning and rather excessive.
When he corners Bill Door, he mocks him and beats him instead of finishing the job. The new Death is destroyed by Bill Door, using the scythe he used on the farm; a humble garden tool, not the infinitely sharp implement of Death, but sharpened by his rage and the harvest.
Bill Door was disgusted and horrified by New Death's callous attitude toward humanity, and his victory is the triumph of the compassionate "reaper man" over the tyrant who has no care for the harvest.
The Rite of AshkEnte also Ashk'Ente or Ash'Kente is the ancient magic ritual that summons and binds Death into a circle and prevents him from leaving until invited to do so by the summoning wizard.
This may be wishful thinking on the part of the wizards as, in Eric , Death appears outside the circle, behind the wizards, and in Reaper Man a wizard comments that he believes Death only stays in the circle for the look of the thing.
The Rite is not tuned to Death himself, but rather whoever happened to be doing the job; Mort then Death's apprentice was almost forced to respond to the summons, and Susan Sto Helit his granddaughter was summoned and subsequently bound.
This does not appear to apply to Death himself, although he may do so out of politeness. Since Death is professionally involved in almost everything that is going on everywhere, the Rite is usually performed so that he can be questioned on otherwise inexplicable phenomena.
This is usually done only when all other avenues have been exhausted as most powerful wizards are quite old and therefore unwilling to attract the attention of Death.
Death hates being summoned because he is always summoned at the worst possible time, such as when he is at a party. The Rite is also the reason for Albert's affiliation with Death; while he was still Archancellor of Unseen University, Albert attempted to become immortal by performing the Rite backwards, reasoning that this would banish Death away from him, but instead it transferred Albert to Death's realm, where he decided to remain on the grounds that time didn't pass in Death's realm and he is thus essentially immortal.
There are twelve ways of performing the Rite, but eight of them cause instant death, and so might just be considered to summon Death in the "usual" manner, and the ninth is very hard to remember.
Although the Rite can be performed by a couple of people with three small sticks and 4 cc of mouse blood or even with a fresh egg and two small sticks, the wizards Ridcully excepted prefer to do it the old fashioned way, with heavy equipment consisting of numerous drippy candles, octograms written on the floor, thuribles , and similar paraphernalia.
They feel it's not "proper" wizardry if it's not showy enough. In the Discworld books, the Rite has been used several times:. And is one way more correct than the others?
Your cat is bunting. Animals will bunt for a variety of reasons, but experts say that cats do it to either mark a person or other animal with their scent.
These same experts say that bunting appears to be social, affectionate behavior, and sometimes is done to get attention. The word bunt goes back to the s, where it was a dialect term used in England that meant "to butt with the head.
You are probably more familiar with bunt as a baseball term to refer to pushing or tapping a baseball lightly without swinging the bat.
The baseball bunt is a direct descendant of the head-butting bunt. Sometimes, animals show their happiness in surprising ways. Rabbits, for instance, binky.
It has nothing to do with pacifiers. A binky is a big hop or jump that a rabbit does, especially a hop or jump that involves a twist of the body.
They can happen suddenly or mid-hop, and new rabbit owners who witness a binky often panic that their rabbit is having a seizure.
But according to those in the know, binky is just a fanciful description of what the twisting jump looks like.
Binky is defined there as "A leap in the air, usually with a degrees turn while in the air, and a bewildered expression upon landing.
They are not waiting for you to take a pic of them for Instagram; they are doing something called flehmen.
Flehmen , sometimes also called the flehmen response or the flehmen reaction , is actually a way of smelling or scenting the air. It's not peculiar to horses: Lifting the upper lip gives them access to the vomeronasal organ on the roof of their mouth, which contains chemoreceptors that help them find mates and investigate other smells in their environment.
The noun flehmen comes into English directly from German, where it is a verb that means "to curl the upper lip. Lekking is the word scientists use to describe a peculiar type of mating behavior that some non-mammalian animals exhibit.
Generally speaking, the males of a species congregate in one particular area and either fight as some deer and antelope do or do elaborate mating displays like the Greater sage-grouse does.
The females of the species sit back and watch, judging the displays to pick a mate. The word lekking comes from the earlier noun lek , which refers to the area in which lekking takes place, or to a group of males busy lekking.
But where did lek come from? Lek was borrowed into English directly from Swedish, where it is short for lekställe , "mating ground.
Darwin, later writing about some of the same birds that Lloyd observed, used lek in his Descent of Man "As many as forty or fifty, or even more birds congregate at the leks.
The lek of the capercailzie lasts from the end of March to the The Swedish etymon that gave us lek is a compound: If you're familiar with caterwaul at all, it's likely in reference to loudly protesting or complaining about something, as in "They heaped abuse on him, caterwauling at a performance they dubbed 'Macdeath' and 'Macflop'" Fred Hauptfuhrer, People , 6 Oct.
But the original caterwaul is a little more primal. Caterwaul came into English in the s, and it first referred to the wailing sounds made by a cat when on the prowl for a mate.
It appears to be a compound of cater , which means either "cat" or "tomcat," and the delightful wrawlen , "to wail," which is imitative of the yowling cats make while in rut.
The word seemed to perfectly capture the loud wailing, and it's no surprise that by , it came to refer to a person making a loud, wailing noise.
The transition was easy enough:.
