NAME ORIGIN
    Death is the end of life, the total and permanent cessation of all the vital functions of an organism. The word comes from the Middle English word deeth. An idol is an image or other material object representing a deity to which religious worship is addressed. The word comes from the Greek eidos meaning "form".
    In Final Fantasy Origins, this item was called Thanatos. Thanatos was the name of the ancient Greek god of death. The name comes from the Greek word Θάνατος meaning "death".
