Born from the depth of the darkest powers, War has walked the earth since the beginning of time. He was born when the gods of war banded together and made him to use against the Chthonians. Almost no one knows anything about his real history and those that do keep it to themselves.
All most people know is that to wake him is to awaken a beast so feral, nothing can tame him. They say the only thing blacker than his soul is his heart. But sometimes a man has to take a walk on the dark side to get what he wants most in the world. He really has only one weakness. The Malachai. The new Malachai is Nick Gautier.
Death, destruction, and revenge are the very things that succor War. He's here to collect a debt, so don't get in his way. The only problem is after he is done he'll turn on the ones who summoned him and kill them too.
The first time War was sealed away, it took twenty-five Chthonians to fight him and he brutally beat them to the point two of them had their hearts ripped out and shoved down their throats while he laughed, then he licked the blood clean from his fingers and came at the rest of them.
Savitar told Acheron Parthenopaeus that he barely survived and it took him two decades of human time to recuperate from those wounds. Ishtar, Eirene, Bia, and the Gigantes came to their rescue and imprisoned War in Tartarus.
Until in One Silent Night, all hell breaks loose again...
