Voldemort fears death, yes. He became immortal at age 16. So he must have been afraid of death long before that, for him to want to live forever. So before he made his first Horcrux, do you think he might have constantly worried about death? Like some constant nagging in the back of his mind that death was all around, and he could die any minute, by anything? Paranoid, even? I dunno, just a thought...
