Meet the Voice Actors of Darksiders III’s Voice Cast

Cissy Jones as Fury

Meet the Voice Actors of Darksiders III’s Voice Cast

Cissy Jones isn’t a voice acting powerhouse like Grey DeLisle or Tara Strong, but she isn’t a slouch either. Many of Jones’ roles consist of background characters, including games such as Grande Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption II, but a few of her more notable roles include Sloane in Destiny 1 and 2, Delilah in Firewatch, and Joyce Madsen in Life is Strange. Darksiders III marks the first time Cissy has played the main protagonist in a video game.

Fury is the only horsewoman in the Darksiders franchise and serves as the stand-in for Famine from classic Judeo-Christian depictions of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. As her name suggests, Fury has a short temper, possibly as a reference to the phrase, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” While she starts off Darksiders III with her whip, Scorn, she discovers it can transform into a variety of weapons, including a giant hammer and a spear.

Fryda Wolff as Watcher

Fryda Wolff is no stranger to voice acting. While she has played many a cartoon character, including Enchantress in Avengers Assemble and Faora in Justice League Action, Wolff has numerous video game roles under her belt, including Vivian in Paladins and Sara Ryder in Mass Effect: Andromeda. Wolff will also play the character Dominique in the upcoming game Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.

Serving much the same role as the Watcher from the first Darksiders game (voiced by Mark Hamill), this Watcher helps Fury on her quest to capture the Seven Deadly Sins. While acting as a submissive scout instead of a sleazy jailer, Fury’s Watcher is no less craven or sadistic than her male counterpart.

Liam O’Brien as War

Liam O’Brien’s IMDB page is full of prominent and noteworthy roles. Anime fans will recognize him as Gaara in Naruto, Mitsuhiro Maniwa in Paranoia Agent, and Kenzo Tenma in Monster, but he is best known for his video game voices. O’Brien has played Illidan Stormrage in World of Warcraft, Asura in Asura’s Wrath, and Caius Ballard in Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns.

War, the star of the first Darksiders game, is the youngest and most serious of the horsemen. As befitting his name, he prefers the straightforward approach and would rather settle disputes with his sword Chaoseater than through words. However, he is honorable to a fault. While War serves a much smaller role in Darksiders III, his actions in the first game’s prologue still echo throughout the franchise’s story.

Phil LaMarr as Vulgrim

Phil LaMarr is voice acting royalty and has a range that surpasses most actors. From Hermes Conrad in Futurama and Wilt in Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, to the titular Samurai Jack and John Stewart in the Justice League cartoons (and Injustice video games), LaMarr is at home in any kind of role. He’s even got quite a few live action chops, including various MADtv roles and Marvin from Pulp Fiction.

As far as demons go, Vulgrim is fairly personable and even approachable, but that’s like stating the lion that’s eating your leg has soft fur. Vulgrim is capitalism personified: he’s a “wandering” merchant who sells everything from artifacts and weapons to skills and knowledge. The only currency he recognizes is Souls, which he eats with sadistic glee. Everything has a price to Vulgrim, including loyalty.

Misty Lee as Envy

Misty Lee has a history of playing minor, if important, roles. Lee voiced The Infected in The Last of Us, Kabae in Aggretsuko, and Princess Leia in the Star Wars: Battlefront video games. Recently, she played the roll of The Sorceress in the Spyro Reignited Trilogy.

The first of the Seven Deadly Sins that Fury encounters in Darksiders III is Envy, who is as weak as she is insane. While her true power lies in her amulet that lets her steal others’ strength, Envy is capable of holding her own in a fight. Also, Envy looks like a Skeksis.
