Since the beginning of creation, THE COUNCIL has been responsible for preserving the equilibrium throughout all of existence. THE HORSEMEN are Nephilim (powerful beings spawned from the unnatural union of angels and demons) who have pledged themselves to the Council and been granted immense power. These Nephilim are responsible for carrying out the Council’s orders. On the other hand, this power did not come without a price, as the Horsemen were ordered to use their newly found prowess to exterminate the rest of their kind. Following this, a bloody battle took place on Eden, during which the Horsemen, in accordance with the will of the Council, exterminated all of the Nephilim.
WAR and STRIFE have been given a new assignment despite the fact that they are still reeling from the events that transpired on Eden. LUCIFER, the mysterious and deceptive demon king, has been conspiring to upset the Balance by granting power to master demons throughout Hell. War and Strife are tasked with tracking down these masters, gathering information, and ultimately fighting their way through a convoluted demonic plot that poses an existential threat to the Balance of all of creation and threatens to tear it apart.
