I think "Father Death" was more of a metaphor then an actual being. :P

Very possible that its only a metaphor or legend.

 In the omnipedia we just treat it as a "legend" in daventry, since the term "Father Death" is a capitalized, it is proper noun, and therefore a person, place or thing (but that doesn't mean the individual actually exists).

It could also just be another name for the Lord of Death, Samhain.

Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg

Either way we have seen two other Lords of Death in the King's Quest games.

Ahh yes I just noticed something in new play through of Mask of Eternity for the omnipedia... In the two cutscenes in the game, and the portrait on the wall in the castle dining room, that Graham's hair is shown to be powder white, like very old man white...

But in TSL's game Graham's hair is a dark grey, with only a few white strands of hair showing up.
