Overview

The Twilight Sword was the powerful sword of Annihilation and the Amethi daemon horde.

History

Okkara rend in twain by the Twilight Sword

Origins

Eons ago, the daemon horde of Amenth came to Earth. Attacking the mutant nation on Okkara, the Twilight Sword was used to literally split the land in two, so Okkara became Krakoa and Arakko.[4][5]

Led by Genesis, Apocalypse, and their First Horsemen, the mutants of Okkara were successful in pushing back the armies of Amenth. However, when offered, Genesis led the mutants of Okkara into the breach into Amenth.[6]

After thousands of years in Amenth, safe behind the walls of Arakko, the mutant nation began to thrive again. This ended when Isca the Unbeaten came to invite Genesis to a parley with Annihilation. Genesis fought and killed Annihilation, but this only freed her daemon horde. After seeing Arakko ravaged by daemons for nearly a century, Genesis finally decided to don the Golden Helm of Amenth and raise the Twilight Sword to command the daemon armies of Amenth.[5]

X of Swords

During the attack of the First Horsemen of Apocalypse on the Starlight Citadel, Saturnyne intervened and set a contest where the forces of Krakoa and Arakko would each have ten swordbearers fighting in Otherworld.[2] Genesis armed with the Twilight Sword was one of the Arakkii chosen as one of the Swordbearers of Arakko.[3]
