I think Death wears a hood because the face of Death is unknown to all but those who have experienced it firsthand. Why Death wears a red hood is a great question. Why would red -- the color of vitality, blood, and passion -- be worn by a figure we perceive to take all those things away? It's certainly worth pondering. I think, among other things, the red hood is hinting that we know a good deal less about Death than we think we do!
Haha thats exactly what I was trying to spit out, nicely said.
