'Sod's parents have been keeping something from him. Just a minor thing, really, about what they do. The thing is, they are grim reapers. Oh yes, and Sod's a grim reaper, too. Grim reaping is the family business, and Sod's name stands for Son of DEATH. But other than that, his family is completely normal.
'Forget everything you know about grim reapers. These days they aren't dark, hooded figures with scythes. Grim reapers are just like you and me. They hold down normal jobs, they could live next door to you, and their scythes look just like mobile phones.
