As someone who has played the Soul Reaver games extensively I couldn't help but notice similar features and characteristics shown by both Death and Raziel.
Both are dead
Both are pale/blue-skinned
Both have gaunt or skull like faces
Both have black, greasy hair
Both are very agile and fast moving characters
Both leech off souls of the dead
I also noticed similarities in their personalities and dialogue in that they are cold and calculative and also with the obviousness that they are both serious characters, they can sometimes be sarcastic and rude but in a tongue-in-cheek kind of way.
Oh and both are INVINCIBLE.
I will finish off by pointing out that I am not trying to say that the characteristics of Death were ripped off from Raziel I was just wondering if anyone else noticed the similarities.
So what do you guys think?
I'm loving Darksiders 2 by the way, was well worth the wait, well done Vigil!
