Origin[edit | edit source]

Ankou is the personification or god of death in the Cornish, Welsh and Norman French folklore. Accounts involving Ankou describe him as a man or skeleton wearing a black cloak and wielding a scythe while others simply describe him as a shadow. Yet still some discovered writings state that he was the first son of Adam and Eve thus being the first person to ever die. He was charged with collecting souls before he could move on. Arriving at the dying's home in a black coach pulled by four black horses, he has a demon and an angel with him.
