If Sin is a part of the Grand Design, is not Sin then, by definition, divine?
— The Riddle of Sorrows

The Seven Deadly Sins are the main antagonists in Darksiders III. The Horseman of the Apocalypse Fury is tasked with hunting them down after they escaped and made their way to Earth.


Nothing is known about the history of The Seven Deadly Sins other than it seems that they were locked away by The Charred Council after they were all defeated by the Horsemen the first time.

Due to the early Apocalypse and the destruction of Mankind, they escaped and made their way to Earth, where each one is transforming the Earth into a unique hellish environment of their own design. Fury is tasked by the Charred Council to hunt and kill them.




  • All of the seven Sins have an aspect in the story that is ironic with the sin they embody.
    • Envy - Envy was so jealous of the power that the other Sins possessed that she created a talisman to siphon off their energy. This talisman proved to be her own end after Fury trapped her inside of it.
    • Wrath - While most of the Sins immediately engage in combat with Fury, Wrath has a moment of calm where he admires how beautiful Fury is.
    • Avarice - During his fight with Fury, Avarice battles by throwing various things that he has horded at her, effectively destroying pieces of his own collection.
    • Sloth - Though he is initially hesitant to battle, Sloth is quick to action after the destruction of his throne.
    • Lust - While Lust is usually associated with sexual desire, Lust is androgynous, eliminating any sexual aspect.
    • Gluttony - Gluttony is defeated by swallowing underwater bombs.
    • Pride - Pride has scars surrounding her right eye which she is so ashamed of, she hides them by covering her entire face with a mask.
  • Avarice is the only member of the Seven Deadly Sins to not have his name based on his Sin, Greed.
    • However, it should be noted that the word Avarice does mean insatiable greed for riches; inordinate, miserly desire to gain and hoard wealth.
