If the gods are gods, and magic is a natural force much like weather or wind, then what would you call Death if not a god or a force? What would you consider the Grim Reaper, or Death of the four horsemen equillavent, as being if Death is represented as a personification of mortality but not as a natural force or as a god, but he is still able to interact with mortals or the gods.
I really hope i'm not confusing anyone...
Another exapmle, and one hopefully more clear then the one above:
If Death was actually a man that rode on a carrage driven by pale horses that came along durring times of famine or plague or war and carried off the souls of the dead and ushered them off into the after life, however Death himself is not a god (nor worshiped as one) but could still usher gods to the afterlife as easily as any mortal and would still have a seat were the gods contemplate the world, what would you call that?
