 How to make a character's
 death sadder

 1.
 Don't have them die of old age after a long, fulfilling life. Many
 people don't even think of this as sad (note that this can still work
 if you have enough of the other factors).
 Leave one of their major goals unfinished. The more enthusiastic
 they are about completing the goal, the sadder.
 Give them strong relationships with other characters.
 Make them fight against whatever is causing their death. Their
 ultimate loss is sadder if they struggle.
 2.
 3.
 4.
 5. Kill them in the middle of their character arc
 6. Don't describe their funeral in detail. Maybe it's just me, but I find
 that long descriptions of funerals kill the sadness.
 That's enough Satan's publisher
