Here are some easter eggs outside of the regular Darksiders Fandom. Who would think Strife would have been shattered, similar to when a precious stone is shattered by a hammer? Oh hammer of justice, into many pieces have you crushed Strife? I mean, he is carrying on with what the council ordered. Yes, the events are right after War was imprisoned for the next 100 years, and before Death sacrificed himself.
Who is not to say Vulgrim is not a shard of the stone? "Says the demon who announces his ambush" - Fury replied, when she first met Vulgrim. Seems like a plan to help Fury find Strife once again. What a coincidence The Black Hammer is eager to help humanity and Fury, right next to Jones himself. I mean, Ulthane is a maker, but the Council did not mentioned him at all. Why did Fury wondered if Ulthane would be flattering her? Instead Ulthane gave her Wrath.
When Fury found Wrath, he called her witch, and then he remembered the old days. But all of this to accomplish one thing, to slay her horse so she would not ride anymore, to keep her safe with Ulthane wherever the portal would lead them to. And to help her control that anger of hers. By doing so, she would remain calm and fight even better.
Of course, Jones never lost sight of her, even when he disappeared for a while. Where did Jones go? No one knows, one thing is clear though, Fury witnessed the tower of the demon king who would end up helping both Death and War. Samael had already helped Strife and War previously, in Darksiders Genesis. That is why she was persuaded to take on Abraxis, who was enemies with Samael. No wonder they all follow their own agenda, and all are very much alike Samael in their own way.
Vulgrim the trader, Jones being undercover, Ulthane finetuning Fury's weaponry, Wrath helping her remain calm, and Samael helping her future. Strife gave her enough time to escape. They are all shards of the main stone, Strife.
