The Reaper is an ancient vengeful quasi-deity who serves as a supernatural assassin that is summoned by magic users to kill other magic users.
The Oracle of Delphi summoned the reaper to kill Eve Baird in the library after all the sands in an hourglass had passed. When the sands in the hourglass ran out and Eve Baird was not in the library he killed the Oracle of Delphi which released Colonel Baird as his target.
- It is as impossible to see the reaper’s face as it is to escape his clutches.
- The library was specifically designed to prevent the reaper from entering and killing librarians.
