The Sisters of the Cathedral of Hope devoted their entire lives to being caretakers of the massive church and its grounds, which included the Fields of Light, a glorious and sacrosanct cemetery for the citizens of Hope's Keep. When the Second Corruption exploded from the nearby Scar, the Sisters did not panic. They had long ago made peace with Sol, their true god, and being delivered to him did not frighten them, even though it would be preceded by blistering agony and untold horrors at the hands of the Hellbourne. Lord Commander Grimm personally led the assault upon the hallowed ground, for despite his corrupted madness, he retained knowledge of the priceless -- and powerful -- relics buried with some of the holy warriors in the Fields of Light. The Sisters tried to protect the sacred tombs with their bodies, but the rampaging daemons simply tore them apart and tossed them aside like tattered leaves. The massacre continued until one Sister remained, standing bravely before the crypt of a Martyr of the Sacred Order. She prayed for strength, for the Hellbourne to find mercy in their dark hearts, for a miracle.
Sol did not respond. But the Sin Slayer did. The Sister did not know it, but the dead Martyr she protected had carried the legendary weapon into countless holy battles and had been buried with it, and now it whispered to her from within the granite walls: Sister. The only true path to peace is through overwhelming force. Carry me to the enemy and see them shatter.
She watched the daemons draw closer, the blood from her Sisters still glistening on their teeth and claws. What would Sol want? Obedience to her vows, or vengeance upon his enemies? Her fingers twitched toward the tomb entrance, and that was all the Sin Slayer needed. It flew to her hand, bursting through the stone walls and unleashing instant destruction upon the Hellbourne. Since that gruesome day, the Sister and her weapon have become inseparable as they cut a holy swath through the corrupted ranks. They are both known by the single name -- Sin Slayer -- a name that sends a chill through even Apex's simmering blood.
