The End is one of several powers called The Entities that influence our world. The End's sphere of influence includes death and the fear of death, cruel and unstoppable. One artefact dedicated to it is able to bind and call ghosts (MAG 62). Mary Keay felt unable to truly serve The End, as she finds singular devotion too restrictive.
