|“||Do you know what kind of creature waits for its own slaughter? Sheep. The Knights of the Iron Legion were once unconquerable. No longer. They now bend the knee to lords and ladies who have forsaken the wisdom of war. The Samurai of the Dawn Empire are fearless, disciplined warriors. Yet their emperor dishonors them with his laws and decrees for peace. Most heartbreaking, perhaps, are the Warborn, the Vikings. These ferocious clans have set aside their axes for their feeble family. This will be an age of wolves. Through me, the wolves among them will rise again. I am war.||„|
Apollyon is the Warlord of the Blackstone Legion, and the primary antagonist of For Honor. She holds admiration for the warriors of all three factions, but is disgusted that they have begun setting aside their military ways in favor of peace. Her ultimate goal is to usher in, as she herself calls it, the "Age of Wolves", turning all armies against one another and starting a new, great and never-ending war. She believes that might makes right, and that war is the natural way of humanity, viewing peace as a deplorable anomaly that only serves to decay men into sheep awaiting to be slaughtered.
