|Eva Siu/ Citizen Heroes documentary|
Operates out of: Vancouver, BC
Activities: Hands out supplies to the homeless, gathers evidence and reports crimes to police
Date of first patrol: Halloween
Origin story: After an officer told him that homeless people only had death to look forward to, Thanatos adopted a look that reflected the Grim Reaper.
Author's notes: I couldn't think of anyone better to feature as a Halloween Hero Profile than Thanatos. He has a somewhat creepy looking exterior, but is motivated by a heart of gold.
I have a chapter of Heroes in the Night that focuses on Thanatos titled "The Man in the Green Skull Mask." I document his status as a legend among Vancouver's large homeless population. You can read an excerpt from that chapter that Vancouver newspaper Georgia Straight posted on their site here: http://www.straight.com/life/498621/heroes-night-documents-local-masked-crusader-thanatos
