Biography Edit

The Riders are four of the Nephilim who refused to continue their bloody crusade over Creation with their brethren and swore to the Charred Council in their obedience.

Some of my earlier sins—my actions when I rode at the forefront of the Nephilim horde, before my brothers and I realized the extent of our transgressions and broke away—were committed in the name of beliefs and agendas to which I no longer subscribe.
Death to The Keeper of Oblivion, The Abomination Vault

After giving their promise to the Council they had to choose new names for themselves and these names were Death, War, Strife and Fury. It is said that they also got some new powers and abilities from the Council which made them much more powerful than their ex-allies.

The first mission the Charred Council gave them was to kill all the Nephilim. It was the price they had to pay for redemption and mercy. According to the novel The Abomination Vault they fought against their siblings many times before their final battle in Eden where the Riders united with the angels and destroyed the Nephilim's army. During that battle the Nephilim as a race were exterminated. Thus, the Riders became the last of the Nephilim in all of Creation.

-You’ve heard of the Horsemen, clearly. And just as clearly, you’ve heard nothing about them.

-Deadly, obscenely powerful, without mercy, and all that, yes, yes …

-I mean who they are. The Four Horsemen are the Council’s enforcers, yes. They’re also the last of the Nephilim.

-The Nephilim are dead!

-As a race, yes. But to the very last? Not quite.
Belisatra and Hadrimon, The Abomination Vault

Now the Horsemen are the Council's vengeful hands. They commit all sorts of missions (such as investigation, execution, punishment, espionage, fighting and so on) which they have to carry out. But their main mission is to protect the Equilibrium (so-called Balance) even during Armageddon until the end of Creation.

Trivia Edit

  • The Horsemen are immortal. They could be killed but they cannot die of old age.
  • The Riders have supernatural strength and agility as they are Nephilim but their powers were also amplified by the Council.
  • Some of the Riders' weapons (Chaoseater for example) were created by Makers and filled with energy by Death himself before they left the Nephilim's army.
