Death and Tone

Death tone in the beginning is very neutral and unconcerned, he just does his job and moves on without lingering but then he meets Liesel. He begins to be interested in her and he lingers and watches her often and that causes the tone to shift to positive because he is no longer unconcerned. Hes interested in Liesel and hes drawn to her for reasons even he doesn't know himself.

Tone and the book thief

"Just don't ask me to be nice. Nice has nothing to do with me

"I practically inhaled it ,but still, i wavered. I buckled- I became interested."

Death is very neutral at first and doesn't really care but once he meets Liesel he becomes interested in her and doesn't just take the soul and move on he stood watches her and hell continue to watch often.
