The mutant known only as the "White Sword", was one of many mutants who resided on Okkara. When the mutant land was invaded by the Amenthi Daemons, the White Sword and his personal army of One Hundred Champions were sent to Amenth as an advance guard. It is unknown what transpired in the hellish dimension but it resulted in helping the mutants win.[2] However, after the battle, White Sword disappeared and never joined his people again. After the mutants and Arakko (one of Okkara’s separated halves) ended up in Amenth, they found countless crucified Daemons, a proof of the White Sword’s wrath.[3]

As countless years passed, the White Sword and his army kept fighting the endless hordes of daemons, everyday dying only for him to resurrect his army to fight once again. This cycle of death and resurrection drove him mad and alienated him from his people. When Genesis and her army encountered him, he saw them as enemies and showed his former allies no mercy, forcing Genesis and what was left of her army to return defeated to Arakko.[3]

The First Horsemen approached the White Sword and asked him to join them in a tournament on Otherworld. He agreed only after he asked them to beg for him to join.[4]

The White Sword is a man of honor, as shown when he used his powers to save Cypher after War accidentally poisoned him. [1]
