Shachath (also known as the Angel of Death or Death Angel) is a benevolent entity that appears to administer her kiss of death to individuals who are dying or wish for death. She is a character in Asylum portrayed by Frances Conroy.
Shachath only appears when she is called and whoever calls receives her “kiss of death”, serving much like a grim reaper. Sister Mary Eunice is agitated when she encounters the dark angel bestowing her kiss upon the Briarcliff inmate known as Miles. She has appeared before Grace, Lana Winters, Sister Jude, and Timothy Howard.
