There was a young boy who worked for a noble- his squire. He was loyal, dedicated and hardworking. After many years of caring for the noble, the man was going to grant his squire a horse.

It was a beautiful, white horse. But his son wanted the horse, only for his jealousy of the care the noble had for the squire. The squire was upset. He told the noble it wasn’t fair. In front of elite spectators he rebuked the noble’s son.

So the squire was punished, executed. As he lay, dying in the field of the firing squad, he cursed Death as he approached. He declared some revenge, a hand of ruin.  

The dark one had patiently waited for an end, and dissolved under the hovering shadowy cape, granting the desire of the boy.

So the squire stood, under the mercy of the dark cape that wove itself into his skin with a biting thorn at the neck. The squire killed the son with a wicked smile on his face, then stole the horse, which on mounting turned a sickly pale.

The boy then took the place of the dark one as Death.

I am that boy.
