Arakko

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cb1ad740_56bf_4916_ab95_04faf1005be5.jpeg

The older, militant twin mutant nation to the newly minted mutant nation of Krakoa. Formed by Genesis, the original horseman, the strongest surviving mutants of Okkara and the mutant island Arakko herself when they banished themselves to Amenth to battle the daemon armies within. For thousands of years the nation of Arakko developed into a hyper militant, strength venerating nation that is home to thousands of powerful mutants and ruled by a council of Omega level mutants that has stood the test of time for millennia of war and death.

Tropes related to Arakko in general:

  • Half-Human Hybrid: Over the eons of their war with Amenth, some were captured and forcibly bred with its demons.
  • Advertisement:
  • Only One Name: They don't appear to have family names, instead they use monikers.
  • Proud Warrior Race: They are very proud of their warlike culture and norms, putting little value in peace and comfort, and essentially are a nation of mutant soldiers constantly ready for battle, hence why they call their mutant powers “weapons” instead of “gifts”.
  • Social Darwinist: A consistent norm across their collective culture, they venerate strength, skill and power of the individual and abhor weakness and comfort due to being a people born exclusively to wage a endless war. They are slow to trust and constantly judge the mutants of Krakoa for having it “easy” in comparison to them and their perceived weakness due to not having been hardened by centuries of war.

Arakko

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/e37a46d3_cf88_4e94_acd3_0683c3dcd638.jpeg

Species: Mutant

First Appearance: X-Men #2 (2019)


  • Genius Loci: Just like its twin, it's a sentient island.
  • Language Barrier: The two islands are finally reunited. Unfortunately, due to centuries of being apart, their languages, personalities and inhabitants are so different, they have no idea how to even communicate.
  • Long Lost Sibling: It's Krakoa's long lost twin.
  • Significant Anagram: Arakko is an anagram of Krakoa.

The First Horsemen

    In General 

The First Horsemen

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/first_horsemen_of_apocalypse_28earth_61629_from_x_of_swords_creation_vol_1_1_001.jpg
  • The Ace: According to Apocalypse, they were the best Horsemen he ever had, while their successors were poor underwhelming replacements (with the possible exception of Archangel, who was always a favourite of Apocalypse's).
  • Antagonistic Offspring: By the time they reunite with their father Apocalypse, they are not pleased with him.
  • Gender-Equal Ensemble: Two males (Death and Famine) and two females (War and Pestilence).
  • Mythical Motifs: They appear to be based on figures from Egyptian Mythology. Death clearly is a Shout-Out to Anubis, the Egyptian god of the Underworld. Pestilence's horned headdress and cranial sphere seem based on depictions of the goddess Hathor.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: If they have any other name, it's not known.
  • The Power of Hate: What's kept the First Horsemen going all the time they've been fighting.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Just like their parents, the Horsemen have been alive for thousands of years.
  • Sibling Team: The four are siblings that have conquered realms together.
  • Superior Successor: Inverted. It's stated in Marvel Comics #1000 that Apocalypse sees his children as the best horsemen he ever had with all who followed being Inadequate Inheritors of their titles - only Archangel really measures up. It's implied that since these were his children, the rest of the horsemen were Replacement Goldfish, as Even Evil Has Loved Ones applies to Apocalypse - he nearly breaks down when he sees them again.

  • Flaming Sword: Vermillion, which is called the Red Sword of War. She uses it to impale Apocalypse when he lowers his guard.
  • Mama Bear: Goes murderously angry when she finds out Wolverine killed her son Summoner.
  • Tampering with Food and Drink: Attempts to poison Wolverine at the banquet, only to end up poisoning Cypher instead. He would have died had the White Sword not used his powers to heal him.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Hates the idea of working with her husband's killer, but has no choice in the matter since he was chosen by Saturnyne for the tournament.
  • Widow Woman: Her husband was murdered by Solem a hundred years prior.

    Death 

Death

  • Berserk Button: Don't serve him sacred scarabs or he'll turn you into ashes.
  • Black Swords Are Better: His sword for the tournament is the Black Bone of Amduat.
  • Dark Is Evil: He's based on the Egyptian god Anubis, his body is black and is the Horseman of Death.
  • Deadly Gaze: Death has a gaze that can reduce someone to ashes. He appears to use his Anubis shaped helm to keep this power in check.
  • Devoured by the Horde: Storm reflects his power back at him, stabs him in the stomach and lets him be devoured by a horde of vampires.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Disintegrates a server at Saturnyne's dinner party because he was served a dish of scarab beetles, which he considers sacred.
  • The Faceless: When he takes off his helm, only the back of his head is shown, and it has a scarab at the back of his scalp. Even when Storm reflects his gaze back at him, his face is not seen.
  • Friendly Enemy: He's surprisingly polite to Storm, and he's so interested in her that they even have a brief dance together.
  • God of the Dead: After getting killed by Storm, Saturnyne recruits him to be the lord of the undead lands of Sevalith.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Storm uses her sword to reflect back his own Deadly Gaze, then she stabs him and leaves him to die to a vampire horde.
  • Sinister Scythe: Fitting for the Horseman of Death, he wields an impressive scythe.
  • Villain Takes an Interest: Unlike War, who is pretty dismissive of Krakoa's sword bearers, Death expresses interest in Storm, how she doesn't fear him nor what he represents. They even share a dance together.

    Pestilence 

Pestilence

    In General 

The Sword Bearers of Arakko

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sword_bearers.jpg
  • The Fellowship Has Ended: With the end of the X of Swords, they all go their separate ways. Death is now at Sevileth, Summoner is dead, Solem has fled to Earth, Pogg is back to being a mercenary, War rejoins her parents and siblings, White Sword and his champions return to their stronghold, Isca remains in Arakko, Redroot is still trapped at the Crooked Market, Bei has joined Cypher at Krakoa along with the other Arakki mutants and Annihilation has been turned into a scepter so Genesis can remain in control of Amenth.
  • Gender-Equal Ensemble: They have five males (Death, Summoner, Solem, Pogg and White Sword) and five females (War, Isca, Redroot, Bei and Annihilation).

    Summoner 

Summoner

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/high_summoner_xmen.jpg

Nationality: Arakkii

Species: Human mutant

First Appearance: X-Men Vol 5 #2 (January, 2020)

A High Summoner of Arakko, sent by his mother War to bring part of Arakko back to Earth from the desolate dimension Amenth to warn his grandfather Apocalypse that the mutants there were about to be defeated by the armies of the Amenth god, Annihilation.


  • Achilles' Heel: The only part of his body which is not invulnerable is his eyes.
  • Asshole Victim: He killed Rockslide in the battle that kicked off the tournament. He fights Wolverine in said tournament and gets a sword through his head.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has chalk white skin and white hair.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Pretends to want his grandfather's aid in order to save their nation, when in fact he and the Horsemen of Apocalypse have already sided with the Amenthi to invade and destroy Krakoa. He even kills Rockslide when he asks him Was It All a Lie? and he answers that he's also a summoner of lies.
  • Bring Help Back: He was sent ahead by his people to find Apocalypse in the hopes that he had raised an army of mutants that could come to Arakko's aid. Luckily for him, he happened to arrive just after the founding of the mutant nation of Krakoa.
  • Consummate Liar: Redroot knows Summoner can lie just as easily as breathing, which is why she's not very excited at hearing his words.
  • False Friend: He killed Rockslide. What's worse is that he took time to befriend the guy just so he could learn exactly how to kill him as it is normally an impossible feat.
  • Language Barrier: When he first meets Cyclops, Cable, and Prestige they cannot understand each other, which quickly leads to a few misunderstandings, a grenade explosion, and a fight. Prestige telepathically implants knowledge of English into Summoner's mind to resolve the situation, although he states speaking in English sounds like grunting in pain in comparison to his singing native tongue.
  • Mr. Exposition: In issue 12 of Jonathan Hickman's X-Men, Summoner tells the tale of Arakko and its mutant population's exile to and existence in the dimension of Amenth.
  • No Name Given: His true name has yet to be given, with people simply calling him Summoner so far based on his title.
  • No Nudity Taboo: The guy walks around naked without a care in the world.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Survives a an explosion from a grenade he was holding in his hand without a scratch. It was later revealed that his mutant power is that he cannot be hurt.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He was born three hundred years ago, but looks like a young adult man.
  • Summon Magic: As a High Summoner, he has learned to tap into the dark magics of Amenth and bring forth a horde of elementals and three daemons at a time.
  • Unreliable Narrator: His tale about Arakko's past is proven to be embellished and downright unreliable when his true nature is exposed.

    Solem 

Solem

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/376be3a5_1743_4f71_880d_949f93ad76f8.jpeg

Nationality: Arakkii

Species: Human mutant

First Appearance: Wolverine Vol 7 #6 (October, 2020)


  • Ambiguously Bi: His reasons for killing Bracken are unknown, but some speculate that they had an affair and that lead to the latter's death. Some speculate that the murder was Solem's revenge for War scorning his advances. His interactions with Wolverine are also surprisingly affable and flirty, though this likely ties into his Villain with Good Publicity persona.
  • Boxed Crook: Released from imprisonment since he was chosen to participate in the tournament.
  • Enemy Mine: Was freed to seek out the Murasama blade and participate in the X of Swords tournament alongside War, who hates him for killing her husband.
  • Friendly Enemy: He's rather polite towards Wolverine and agrees to work with him briefly in order to get their respective swords. That said, he won't hesitate to fight and kill Wolverine if he has to.
  • Gilded Cage: Thanks to all the gifts he received, he found his so called eternal torment rather easy to suffer.
  • In the Hood: Wears a white hood.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Wolverine realizes as soon as he attacks him, Solem's skin is made of adamantium.
  • Out of Focus: Of all the Swordbearers of Arakko, he's had the least amount of panel time besides his fight against Wolverine and War.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: He invokes Wolverine's debt to get Logan to fight War on his behalf and takes the chance to abandon the tournament
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Was imprisoned in a pit meant to be an eternal torment as punishment for killing Bracken, husband of War. Unfortunately, he has many fans on Arakko who keep bringing him gifts.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: He wears a hood but not a shirt.

    The White Sword 

The White Sword

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/white_sword_earth_616_from_x_men_vol_5_12.jpg

Nationality: Okkaran

Species: Human mutant

First Appearance: X-Men Vol 5 #12 (September, 2020)

An immortal healer and bearer of the sword Purity. He once led his 100 Champions into The Amenth dimension to fight to protect the mutants of Arakko, only to grow addicted to battle and turning on Arakko as well.


  • Aloof Ally: He only agrees to join the Horsemen if they beg him for his help. He also only fights against Gorgon himself after War begs him to as well. He's entirely uncaring of Arakko's goals and in fact is holding a grudge over being left to fight constantly for thousands of years by them.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: His skin is blue.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Expresses disgust at War for trying to poison their opponents at a banquet, and when he resurrects Doug he pointedly states that unlike everyone else he resurrects, Doug has no obligation to him.
  • Fallen Hero: The White Sword and the One Hundred Champions had grown embittered by the daily cycle of slaughter and resurrection for thousands of years. Never being rescued by their fellow mutants, they came to see the Arakko mutants as no better than the demons and they attacked the crusading force of Genesis when they made it to his bastion.
  • Flunky Boss: Sends 13 of his 100 champions against Gorgon before War begs him to take the fight himself, because his champions are just racking up the score for Krakoa dying at Gorgon's hands.
  • Hidden Eyes: When introduced his helmet obscured his eyes. Only rarely his eyes are seen.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Nobody mourns the large numbers of demons that the White Sword's forces had crucified.
  • Light Is Not Good: Wears a white armor and his sword is named Purity, yet he's far from nice, or helpful.
  • Necromancer: Essentially, since he can fully resurrect others and compel them to serve him.
  • The Needless: Mentions he doesn't need to eat, but he can do it if he wants to.
  • The Older Immortal: As an Okkaran mutant and an External, he's old enough to have known the first Horsemen as children.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Uses his healing powers to save Cypher from poisoning and makes it clear that unlike everyone else he resurrects, Cypher doesn't serve him.
    • He respects Gorgon's wish to not be resurrected as one of his Champions, and afterward refers to him as a Worthy Opponent.
  • Resurrective Immortality: Thanks to his External physiology, White Sword can bring himself and others back to life after being killed.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: He and his champions simply return to their stronghold once Annihilation decides to attack with her horde of demons, since he came for a fight, not a war.
  • They Call Him "Sword": He's only known as the White Sword.
  • Troll: He enjoys making the Horsemen beg him for help, since he considers it payback for leaving him and his champions on Amenth for thousands of years without aid.
  • Villain Respect: After seeing Gorgon killing 13 of his champions, he offers him the chance to be revived as one of them. Gorgon refuses and White Sword accepts it before finishing off the Krakoan.

    Pogg Ur-Pogg 

Pogg Ur-Pogg

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pogg_ur_pogg.jpg

Nationality: Amenthi

Species: Amenth

First Appearance: X of Swords: Stasis #1 (October, 2020)


  • Badass Normal: At least in comparison to the other Sword bearers, not having any powers beyond his strength.
  • The Big Guy: He's easily the largest of the Sword Wielders of Arakko by far.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He gets pretty excited at the prospect of a fight and plunder.
  • Four-Fingered Hands: He only has four fingers on his hands.
  • Greed: He's bribed to fight for Arakko with gems and the promise of plunder from Earth.
  • Monster Suit: Magik twigs in her second duel why both sword and beast have the same name the whole thing is Pogg Ur-Pogg, being piloted by a two foot tall goblin.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: He's got six arms. Four of them are very large and appear rather disproportionate, while the remaining two are located on a more realistic place for a crocodile.
  • Never Smile at a Crocodile: Looks like a gigantic crocodile with six arms.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: His manner of speaking.
  • Third-Person Person: He refers to himself in the third person.
  • Token Non-Human: He's the only member of the Sword Bearers of Arakko that is not a mutant, instead he's a beast from Amenth.

    Isca the Unbeaten 

Isca the Unbeaten

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/isca_3.jpg

Nationality: Okkaran

Species: Human mutant

First Appearance: X-Men Vol 5 #12 (September, 2020)

Isca is the sister in-law of Apocalypse whose mutant ability to never lose forced her to choose the Amenth over Arakko. She also sits upon the Great Ring of Arakko as part of the Dawn table.


  • The Ace: Isca has the power to always win.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Her skin is reddish, and changes color to show her allegiance, becoming golden when switching sides at the climax of the Tournament to show she opposes Amenth again.
  • Ambadassador: She's the main liaison between Krakoa and Arakko and is just as unable to lose as ever.
  • Braids of Action: Her hair seems to have several thin braids.
  • Cool Aunt: Seems to get along pretty well with her nieces War and Pestilence from the Horsemen.
  • I Fight for the Strongest Side: A side-effect of Isca's Tychokinesis, she can't be beaten so her power led her to join the demons of Amenth, who are too numerous and powerful to be truly defeated by Arakko. Her betrayal broke the spirits of the mutants and eventually they took an offer from the demons.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: Her eyes appear to be completely white.
  • Red Baron: She's called the Unbeaten. Extra points for literally being red.
  • Showy Invincible Hero: Isca's power turns her into The Ace so perfect, that she never loses in whatever she does - whether it's winning fights or stacking a wine glass tower. She'll do it and in style too.
  • Sibling Team: She and Genesis were sisters and fought together for centuries.

    Redroot the Forest 

Redroot the Forest

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/redroot.jpg

Nationality: Arakkii

Species: Human mutant

First Appearance: X of Swords: Stasis #1 (October, 2020)


  • Evil Counterpart: Is one for Cypher. They're both the speakers for their respective living island. Her relationship with Arakko directly parallels Doug and Krakoa's.
  • Green Thumb: The infogram in X of Swords: Stasis indicates her power is botomancy
  • Plant Person: She looks like a woman made out of vines.
  • Red/Green Contrast: Her color scheme alternates between red and green.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Mad Jim Jaspers traps her in a jar for accidentally breaking an invaluable object at the Crooked Market.
  • Token Good Teammate: Of the Swordbearers of Arakko, she abhors violence and only accepts to fight because of the promise of reunification between Arakko and Krakoa.

    Bei the Blood Moon 

Bei the Blood Moon / Bei Ramsey

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bei_earth_616_from_x_of_swords_stasis_vol_1_1_0001.png

Nationality: Arakkii

Species: Human mutant

First Appearance: X of Swords: Stasis #1 (October, 2020)

Arakko-born warrior who did not speak for the first fifty years of her life. When she did, she discovered she had a "Doom Note", a voice capable of destroying a mountain that desires to be understood but remains impossible to translate. As the wielder of the blade called Seducer, Bei was summoned to join the Swordbearers of Arakko against Krakoa.


  • Beautiful All Along: Without her helmet, she's actually quite beautiful.
  • Big Damn Kiss: With Cypher after they become married.
  • Blade on a Stick: Seducer looks more like a spear than a sword.
  • Blood Knight: Summoner doesn't even need to tell her why she's fighting to join the Swordbearers.
  • Brown Note: Her power is called the "Doom Note" and is so powerful it can level mountains.
  • Defecting for Love: Rather than siding with Arakko in finishing off the Krakoans, she tries to take Doug to a safe location and later agrees to help them.
  • Fourth Date Marriage: More like No Date Marriage, since Saturnyne arranges Doug and Bei's wedding within hours of knowing each other.
  • High-Heel–Face Turn: She's the only Swordbearer that downright defects from Arakko and joins Doug and the rest of the mutants back to Krakoa.
  • Huge Girl, Tiny Guy: When compared to her opponent/husband Cypher, she's much taller than him.
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: She communicates entirely through her Doom Note power, which conveys her intent like a platonic ideal of language as an abstract concept. Ironically, because it's not technically a language, Cypher's powers can't translate it, making her the first person he can't understand.
  • Love at First Sight: When she sees Cypher, she tells him to "avert his eyes" and complimenting his appearance, in a matter implying she was a bit embarassed by it. Cypher can't help but get smitten once he sees her without her helmet.
  • Mundane Utility: Her Doom Note can either be a powerful weapon or a (nigh) universally understood speech.
  • One Head Taller: She's at least this tall when compared to Cypher.
  • Opposites Attract: Her power allows almost anyone to understand her while Cypher's power allows him to understand any language. Here, they end up bizarrely canceling each other out. This appears to be one of the things that draws them to the other.
  • Perfectly Arranged Marriage: Saturnyne hooks her up with Cypher instead of having them fight. They end up married immediately and are both 100% happy with it.
  • Technicolor Eyes: When she takes off her helmet, her eyes turn out to be pink.

    Annihilation 

Annihilation

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3ec285c4_2c36_4c17_84d8_e5192d9464fb.jpeg

Nationality: Amenthi

Species: Unknown

First Appearance: X-Men Vol 5 #12 (September, 2020)

Annihilation is the Dark God of Amenth who possess anyone who wields The Golden Helm of Amenth.


  • Combat by Champion: According to Summoner, she fought one against Genesis, and won. Turns out Annihilation won by losing, since Genesis became her new host, even if she resisted at first.
  • The Corruption: It wants everything and after Genesis became their host, now they want everything as well.
  • Demonic Possession: Whoever wears Annihilation's mask is overridden and turned into the goddess' vessel.
  • Mask of Power: Annihilation's mask signifies both control over the Amenth dimension and that they're under control of Annihilation. Saturnyne decides to turn it into a staff so it's easier to control, although its hunger will never fully go away.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Annihilation certainly is an intimidating name.
  • Possession Burnout: Hosts of her power don't last very long the only exception so far being Genesis.
  • Symbiotic Possession: Her arrangement with Genesis.
  • You Kill It, You Bought It: Genesis beating her only meant she had become the rightful owner of her mask, and despite resisting for a century, she eventually chose to wear the mask to control the demons before they destroyed Arakko.

The Great Ring Of Arakko

    In General 
The ruling council of Arakko, a council of Omega Level mutants whose rule has lasted thousands for years.
  • Alternate Company Equivalent: Is essentially this to the council of the nation of Krakoa (although the great ring came first chronologically). Being a collection of well respected, powerful and influential mutants that occupy similarly designated sections of the council that denote their unique places and roles, with special exceptions given to the mutant island itself and its speaker, and have, in essence, the near the exact same first three laws save for the second one of “destroy our enemies”. Of course, considering all the alternate future reality knowledge that went into making the nation of Krakoa, this all might have been intentional by design.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Although not expanded on in detail, the council is only comprised of Omega level mutants (with the exception of Redroot, who is the speaker of the island) and only omega level mutants can have a seat, reflecting the Social Darwinist nature of the nation that sees strength and power as the most important thing and therefore would not tolerate anything less but the strongest mutants to lead them. It’s a better example than most considering most of the same members lead the nation in a thousands year war relatively successfully till its end phases.

Nationality: Arakkii

Species: Human mutant

First Appearance: X-Men Vol 5 #12 (January, 2020)

The High Mutant Prophet of Arakko and Omega level precog who sits upon the Dawn table of the Great Ring.


  • The Cassandra: Despite being an omega level mutant with the power of precognition, he was still laughed at and threatened by Genesis for his, as later seen, totally accurate vision that their forever war with Amenth was doomed to fail. She did come around to it later when things got bad, but it doesn’t make the initial reaction any less ignored despite his power in the first place.
  • Blind Seer: After a vision of Arakko's defeat at the hands of Amenth's daemons, Idyll was rendered blind.

  • Frog Men: Instead of a frog he looks like a humanoid axolotl.
  • Making a Splash: A unique example, he can both manipulate water and his entire body contains water teeming with oceanic life, essentially making him a walking ocean.

  • One Steve Limit: Happens to share name with Tyler Dayspring, Cable's son, and with Evan Sabahnur, Apocalypse's clone, both of whom became Apocalypse's successors.
  • More Deadly Than the Male: Apocalypse is one of the most powerful mutants Earth knows, and he freely admits his wife is much stronger than he is.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: How she sees her victory over Annihilation, since she realized she had become the newest host of the goddess and despite resisting for a hundred years, she eventually gave in so she could control the horde of daemons.
  • Second Love: While their relationship isn't explored that much, she could be this for Apocalypse after Nephri's rejection.
  • Social Darwinist: As expected of Apocalypse's wife, which is why she sided with the Amenthi and became the host of Annihilation. Survival of the fittest after all.

Genomic Mage of Arakko and a member of the Great Ring of Arakko's Dawn table.


  • Evil Counterpart: He's this to Xavier leading a group of mutants, having telepathy, and even using his catchphrase to call his team.
    Tarn: To me my Locus Vile.
  • Eviler Than Thou: He's also like a more evil Mr. Sinister, being an amoral geneticist as well that easily trounces Sinister for trying to poach his stock.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Tears Mr. Sinister to pieces with his telekinesis. Considering what a monster Essex is and what he has done, it's hardly undeserved.

  • I'm a Humanitarian: Tries to eat Orphan-Maker after tearing both his arms.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: He is not allowed to eat, with it being implied that something very horrible will happen if he does, as his teammates immediately stop fighting and start panicking when they notice him attempting to chow down on Orphan-Maker.
