Strife was an artificial lifeform created by the Empire Of Shadows, a sexless humanoid with reptilian featuers
Strife was created by using genetic material from the Many and from the dead bodies that had been possessed by Eris. A very powerful but single-minded creature, Strife was easily employed both by Eris and Hermes in their schemes. After a long battle from Persephone, which she abandoned in frustration, Strife fought the Alliance until its power was re-absorbed by Eris.
Energy absorbtion and duplication: Strife was able to absorb vast quantities of energy, store them and replicate them. Its upper limit is unknown but Vesta, Quantum and Persephone were unable to overwhelm it; its most impressive feat was withstanding without damage a blast that vaporized an area the size of a continent.
