Prologue

The Enjeru-Akuma Council sat before their chosen four. They had destroyed their brothers and sisters, all for the sake of power and justice. They had proven their worth and would be bestowed great power.

The Elders on the Council looked at them, their chosen. The Four who would have unimaginable power once this meeting concluded. But there were other important matters to be discussed first...

An Elder angel came forward, careful not to come into contact with one of the minions of Hell. He looked down at the kneeling forms, "We have chosen you Four for great power. You Four alone stood against your comrades and betrayed them for the greater good and the lesser of two evils. Your brothers and sisters became too greedy, and drunk with power. They wished to destroy all that there is and ever will be. But you Four would have none of it. You Four retained your sanity and knew your place. You Four ended the bloodshed. You Four... destroyed them all."

An Elder demon came forward, cutting off his "comrade". He towered over the Four and smirked, "You have proven yourselves that much is certain. You will keep the powers bestowed upon you for your service and in return you now serve Heaven and Hell. When you are needed you will come without grievance. And when the final call is sounded, you will answer it, one by one, and rain destruction upon the Earth,?"

The Elder angel interrupted with instance, "But only when the final call is sounded and only then. No destructive harm from your power is to befall the mortal realm until that time."

The demon rolled his eyes, "Yes, yes, only when the call is heard and even we do not know when that will be. For now, it has been decided that you will walk amongst the mortals."

The angel continued, "You will be one of them but will not suffer the same ailments as them such as sickness and," the angel looked to the fourth figure and smirked, "death..."

The fourth figure turned his stoic gaze towards the angel who then cleared his throat and continued, "You will have immortality. You will not age. Your masquerade among the humans is to hide you from those that would seek your power and to protect humanity. They must never know that you are one of them. They must only know that you lurk in the shadows waiting to strike when they least expect it."

The demon spoke again, "And should you ever displease us or the outer realms... well, the higher powers made you what you are and they can end you. Permanently. Do not fail us."

The Four rose from their kneeling positions and the entire council of  Elders spoke in sync, "You are the Four Horsemen and you ride for Heaven and Hell."
