Soul Eater: Monotone Princess

A Grim Reaper (also called a Reaper) is a powerful type of deity that keeps the equilibrium between both good and evil.[1]



The appearance of a Grim Reaper can resemble that of a humanoid or a inhuman form dependent on the individual Grim Reaper. However, a physical trait that seperates a humanoid Grim Reaper from others is their Lines of Sanzu, represented by their white lines in their hair.[2] Their souls can also be colored either a light blue similar to humans or a golden hue.[3]

Role and SignificanceEdit

Both Death the Kid and Death revealed that their duty as Grim Reapers involves the protection of the world and managing the equilibrium between good and evil.[4] Grim Reapers are also known protectors of souls.[1] Due to their powerful and essential role within the world, various people (i.e Justin Law) worship Grim Reapers as their Gods.[5]

Special AbilitiesEdit

Grim Reapers are perhaps the most powerful type of race within the world. Their status as gods give them special powers and advantages over humans and other races. Some of these common special abilities among them include:
