Fury is the main protagonist of Darksiders III.
She is one of the last of the Nephilim and a Horseman of The Apocalypse. She is the Rider of the Black Horse whose name is currently unknown. Fury wields a blade whip as her weapon, and can also use her magic against her enemies.
After War was accused by The Charred Council of starting the Apocalypse prematurely and imprisoned, The Council informed Fury and the other two Horsemen of War's fate. The Charred Council ordered Fury to go to Earth and destroy the Seven Deadly Sins, who were ravaging Earth.
Personality and TraitsEdit
Fury is described as the most unpredictable and enigmatic of the Four Horsemen. By the time she met War after the accusation against him of starting the untimely Apocalypse she didn't seem to care about him. Fury seems to possess a bit of bloodlust as when she was asked if she accepts the task of destroying the Seven Deadly Sins, she accepted with pleasure all while giving a faint smile. She is confident and driven. She is also loyal to the Charred Council, more so than War, and wants the Horsemen as a whole to be well-respected and renowned.
In The Abomination Vault, she appeared to be calmer than her brothers; she released a hiss of breath when Strife held Death at gunpoint and tried to reason with Death about his plan to catch Belisatra and Hadrimon. Like Death, Fury also cares deeply about her siblings as shown when she put her arm around Death's arm and was worried about him when he was gone for half a century. However, Fury seems convinced that War had triggered the premature apocalypse.
As one of the four remaining Nephilim and one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Fury is an extremely powerful entity with abilities of preternatural strength and power similar to her brothers. However, unlike her two brothers, War and Death, she is not strictly a warrior, but rather a blade mage; relying on using a combination of magic and her bladed whip to slaughter her enemies and restore the balance of good and evil.
Her weapon arsenal includes:
- Fury's Whip - Fury's primary weapon. In addition to attacking enemies, she can also use it to climb and swing from place to place.
- Fury is the only Horseman that does not lend a weapon to War. War can, however, obtain Fury's Embrace, a Legendary Enhancement.
- Fury is also the only horseman without an obvious correlation (other than horse color) to the traditional Four Horsemen, she replaces Famine who only wields weighing scales.
- Fury is also the only horseman who doesn't have her face at least partially hidden, War's face is sometimes hidden under his hood and obtains the Mask of Shadows in Darksiders, Strife often wears a helmet on his face (with the exception of a scene in the novel Darksiders: The Abomination Vault), and Death is wearing his signature mask at all times (with the exception of the final scene of Darksiders II).
- In her concept art, Fury has a symbol on her left shoulder that bears a striking resemblance to the ones Death and Absalom have.
- There is some speculation that the name of Fury's steed could be "Torment," being that furies are tormentors of Hades, god of the underworld.
- Fury possesses similarities with the Dark Prince from Prince of Persia. The whip she uses is similar to the Dagger Tail the Dark Prince uses. Also, both their hair moves in a way mirroring smoke.
- Theological: "When he broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature cry out, "Come forward." I looked and there was a black horse, and it's rider held a scale in his hand. I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures. It said, "A ration of wheat costs a day's pay, and three rations of barley costs a days pay. But do not damage the olive oil or the wine."" Rev 6:6:5 and 6:6:6
