When life ends, many believe a soul is judged.
If you're a warrior who dies on the field of battle, perhaps if deemed worthy you'll go to Valhalla. If someone was a good person who lived their life faithfully, maybe they'll go to heaven. If there was a wicked being who chose to lead a life of terror and greed, many think that a person like that might just go to hell: but where does a soul that doesn't fit within any of those end up?
What happens when a person wasn't really all that bad or good, heroic or cowardly? What happens to a soul, when they didn't manage to do enough with their life to be judged in the first place?
Well, apparently some of them end up like... this.
All hail the Tiny Snake God!
