The Ankou, in Breton mythology, is the personification of death. He is variously described as a man or skeleton in a cloak, and a shadow-man wearing a hat that hides his face. In each case he carries a scythe for harvesting the souls of the dead. In some tales he drives a coach pulled by black horses, or pulls a cart to collect the dead.
