Darksiders Wiki

Imprisoned Hellguard Soldier

Light of the Fallen is a side quest in Darksiders II. It is acquired through dialogue with Uriel, Captain of the Hellguard, when Death arrives on Earth. She will task Death with finding her lost Hellguard soldiers who have fallen in battle, yet whose souls remain captured by darkness. Ten of them exist scattered throughout the ruined cityscape, trapped within bony fingers. Death must destroy them to release their souls.
