War is a loyal Horseman who fights to uphold the Balance on behalf of the Council while wielding Chaoseater, a massive blade that he handles with equal parts ferocity and grace. Darksiders: Genesis introduces players to a younger version of War, when he had only recently become a Horseman and is still figuring out what it means to fight for the Balance. War sees no need to dwell in the past and has committed himself to becoming an efficient and deadly soldier, destroying the enemies of the Council without hesitation.
War is a loyal soldier, but struggles to contain a violent anger and temper. He strives to approach situations with logic, but when pushed he will strike down his enemies without hesitation. This younger version of War is a far more reckless and wild warrior than the seasoned hero of the original Darksiders, and he’ll have to work to maintain his relationship with fellow Horseman Strife while fighting to unravel a plot that threatens to destroy the Balance.
