The Grim Reaper is an immortal god-like entity.
The Grim Reaper is mysterious, timeless entity resembling a talking skeleton in black robes, often seen holding a scythe. He embodies the concept of death, and supposedly visits every mortal upon their death to take them away to the Afterlife. Though he has demonstrated a sadistic streak at times when scaring future "victims", the Reaper is also capable of having fun, in his own weird fashion, such as by visiting Halloween Town.
Behind the scenesEdit
In 1996, the Halloween event at Disneyland included a newwalkaround character in the Haunted Mansion. Although referred to by the actor who portrayed him as "the Phantom", the ghost looked identical to classic depictions of the Grim Reaper.
