Life is a character who is first seen in the short "The Gift That Reaps Giving". She appears to be in a relationship with Death. She has two snake heads that speak simultaneously. It was revealed in the short "Frog Seasons: Winter" that she was the Frog carrying a crown.

Appearance

Life takes the appearance of two green snakes twirled around each other, one a darker color than the other. The snakes heads meet up and look directly at each other almost always, even when she speaks. Both the snakes have yellow, cat-like eyes with a red pupil. Her right leg is a darker green than her left, similar, her left arm to her right, proposing each snake is protruding an arm and a leg each. She wears a chocolate colored dress consisting of two brown ribbons with a golden stripe in the middle, twisting around her, and covering her from the knees to her shoulders.

Abilities

Life is able to create life by touching objects intentionally or unintentionally (when Life just wants to kiss Death, a flower sprouts on his face). She also has the ability to melt a huge Snowy Mountain that turns into a green hill blooming with flowers and trees by a sort of golden yellow juice that exudes from her body. In the Dead Worlds, Life is in charge of reincarnation, and creates new bodies for the many souls that enter her underwater garden

Trivia

  • The main inspiration for her design is probably the aztec goddess Coatlicue, giver and taker of life, whose face was formed by two snakes,
  • Life's design seems to be inspired by the caduceus, the traditional symbol of Hermes that features two snakes winding around a winged staff. The double snakes of the caduceus represent duality and the unification of polar opposites, much like Life's relationship with Death.
  • Another resemblance to that of Life's design is the Ouroboros, an ancient symbol of a serpent consuming its own tail. Symbolically, this represents the cycle of life and death, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself. The Ouroboros frequently represents an infinite cycle; in particular, that of nature's endless creation and destruction.
  • She seems to speak fluent French, as when she hears that New Death is cancelling reincarnation, she says "Après tout ce que j'ai fais pour ce garçon, après tout ce que j'ai fais pour lui. Non mais c'est pas possible, ce n'est pas possible. Non ça me.. ça m'infurie complètement! Mais c'est pas possible." This translates to: "After all I did for that boy, after all I did for him, no, it's not possible, it's not possible no, that.. that makes me so mad but it's not possible."
