Darksiders is currently part of the Humble Bundle that’s going on right now. Maybe now I’ll finally get around to playing it.
I couldn’t find a lot of information about Ares’ birds except that he’s got a bunch of em. I did find one quote that I thought was pretty good, though.
“When the Argonauts had come to the island of Dia (Divine), and the birds were wounding them, using their feathers as arrows, they were not able to cope with the great numbers of birds.”
