This article is about a fictional ideology and has no foundation in real life political movements.
Death Worship, also translated to Obliteration of the Self, is an off-compass authoritarian ideology which is the doctrine of the super-state of Eastasia from 1984.
Not much is actually known about their beliefs besides from that like Ingsoc is the corruption of European Socialism for the benefit of state dominance and Neo-Bolshevism is the corruption of Marxism for the benefit of state dominance, Death Worship is the corruption of Asian Spirituality for the benefit of the state. Specifically the principle of Self-Sacrifice in the name of greater goals, which DW transforms into Self-Abuse in the name of serving the state.
Personality and Behaviour
Like IngSoc, Death Worship is a malevolent and power-hungry individual seeking to exert his will across everything in existence. Death Worship generally acts without showing much emotion and has a cold and clinical manner of speaking. The only exceptions are when he is talking about dying in war for the interests of the state.
DW is usually portrayed to be suicidal, but this does not have to be the case, especially since military death would be more useful for a totalitarian state.
Like Ingsoc, Death Worship is also the essence of totalitarianism, though Ingsoc has better brand recognition.
Death worship's character is often portrayed as a Japanese with slanted eyes and a rice hat.
How to Draw
The design for Death Worship is based on the first symbol in the word "Death" in hanji/kanji: "死".
- Draw a ball,
- Fill in with light spring bud,
- Draw the death symbol in black,
- Draw in the eyes. You can make them slanted if you want.
