Since the dawn of time, the COUNCIL has maintained the Balance throughout its existence. Their commands have been carried out by the riders, Nephilim (powerful beings bred through an unnatural intercourse between angels and demons) who have sworn their allegiance to the Council and been endowed with tremendous power. But this power has its tragic cost: The riders were ordered to use their newfound strength to wipe out the rest of their battle. This led to a bloody battle at Eden, where the horsemen wiped out nephilim at the council’s command.
Before they have managed to recover from the events in Eden, WAR and WAR are given a new mission. LUCIFER, the enigmatic and deceitful demon king, has made plans to disrupt the Balance by giving power to the master demons of hell. War and Controversy must find these masters, secure intelligence and fight their way through an intricate and devilish conspiracy that threatens to disrupt the Balance forever and destroy the entire creation.
