- Oathbreaker Strÿfe, Fallen Mortis Knight
Sideshow presents the Oathbreaker Strÿfe: Fallen Mortis Knight Premium Format™ Figure. Strÿfe is a character from Sideshow's original dark fantasy horror property, Court of the Dead.
Mortis Knight Osseil was once determined to solve an impossible equation to save the Underworld, but the corrupting force of the dreadsgrip offered a deceptively simple solution: sacrifice. In his weakness, he fell for the dreadsgrip's deceit and gave in to his darker nature. He betrayed the knighthood and became Oathbreaker Strÿfe, taking his name in mockery of the Stryfehall, also called Mortiss-Veth, where he first trained to become a knight. Now, every sadistic sacrifice he makes is to build his twisted vision of the perfect Underworld.
"The dreadsgrip is an energy, just like etherea," explained Tom Gilliland, creator of Court of the Dead. "But when a mourner's etherea becomes tainted with thoughts of power, destruction, greed, or malice, the dreadsgrip takes its hold. It has a purple stain to it, representing that it is a spoiled power, unlike the more pure blue of etherea. This Oathbreaker figure exemplifies the parasitic nature of the mourner's struggle, as Strÿfe is literally consumed by his own darkness."
The Oathbreaker Strÿfe: Fallen Mortis Knight Premium Format Figure stands 23" tall, with striking sculpture and paint throughout, setting a new standard for the visual storytelling of the Underworld. Dreadsgrip seeps through this fully sculpted horror collectible and every inch has been considered in exquisite detail- faces, flames, and other meaningful ornate elements bring this terrifying character to (after)life.
The base of the figure bears the mark of all Mortis Knights, a four winged angel, but the platform has shifted and cracked like tectonic plates, symbolizing the breaking of that sacred oath. Hints of teal ethera darken to the dreadsgrip's deep purple at Strÿfe's right foot, snaking beneath his rusting and deteriorating armor, crawling to his very core. Corruption has eaten away at his mind and body, leaving a hole in the center of the Oathbreaker Strÿfe: Fallen Mortis Knight Premium Format Figure where his ribs are torn asunder to reveal a skeletal visage in his back cavity.
Gilliland worked very closely with painter Casey Love to tell this tragic story through the colors of this piece. "The dreadsgrip corrupts whatever it touches. The patina evokes the classic ethereal blues and greens seen on many of the Court of the Dead characters, but the orange stains of rust reveal that even his armor is corroded and tainted just like him."
From out of his rusted armor, violet rage plumes like fire at his head and from behind his helm Strÿfe smiles, eager to do the dreadsgrip's bidding. He tightens his hold on the Raker's Scrape- this weapon may have once had a loftier title prior to Osseil's fall, but like him, the axe broke faith, and through a new name appeals to its more destructive attitude.
Build the greatest future through destruction, and build your Court of the Dead collection with the Oathbreaker Strÿfe: Fallen Mortis Knight Premium Format Figure.

Terms Of Pre-Order
Pre-orders require us to commit to an order with a specific manufacturer which we are then liable for. If you place a pre-order, the minimum 10% deposit of total guide price required to place a pre-order is non-refundable, should you choose to cancel. The only exception to this is if the price quoted on your order is going to change by more than 10% when the item arrives.
ETA's can vary and are not guaranteed arrival date. We list the date given by manufacturer, but delays can and do happen. We cannot cancel your pre-order, even if delays are substantial, so please take this into account when ordering. We regularly update the product listing with the latest ETA. Keep an eye on the listings after you order to see when your product is due to arrive.
Orders must be settled within 30 days of the product coming into stock. Failure to settle within this period may mean you lose your deposit and pre-ordered item.
Prices quoted can be subject to change as items are only billed by manufacturers when they ship to us. We do everything we can to give you an accurate buy price, but pre-orders that are far away can vary in price if exchange rate varies from now until then.
Postage fees can also vary depending on the size of the product, type of shipping and number of boxes required. We suggest you pre-order each item individually as that way each pre-order's postage is paid separately and can ship as it comes into stock.
Many items are produced in limited quantities. Pre-Ordering looks to ensure that you get one of the limited numbers produced.
What happens when I Pre-Order?
Upon receiving your Pre-Order, we will place an order with the appropriate distributor for your item. The distributor in turn places the order with the manufacturer who then ensure that the item is shipped to the distributor when it's ready. This means we are liable for the order from that point which is why we charge you a deposit to ensure you're serious on purchasing the item.
Why are some pre-order ship dates so far away?
A number of manufacturers produce items in batches according to demand. The manufacturing process takes considerable time as the items are often hand painted.
What if I change my mind and want to cancel?
Should you wish to cancel your Pre-Order you can do so, but you will lose either the deposit you paid, or if you paid in full or part-payments, 10% of the expected guide price of the item. The reason for this is we will have placed an order for your item and we are liable for it.
Is the price you list the final price I will pay?
Most of the time, the guide price will be correct. But as we buy most pre-orders in from abroad, the price can vary due to exchange rate variance. Sometimes that can work in your favour and sometimes against. When the item is ready to ship from the distributor, we will inform you of any price changes. If prices have risen by over 10%, you have the right to cancel order if you so wish and we will return your deposit.
Are Pre-Orders guaranteed to arrive?
Most of the time they are pretty reliable. However, sometimes the manufacturer can run into production or licensing problems and occasionally items are cancelled either temporarily or permanently. Of course if this happens we will refund your deposit.
What happens when my Pre-Order comes into stock?
When your item comes into stock you have 30 days to pay the remaining amount due (Guide Price less your deposit) or risk losing your Pre-Order and deposit.
Can I pay off my pre-order in staged payments rather than one big sum?
We can send you stage payments if you wish to pay in advance of your product shipping. Simply email us to let us know your preferred payment stages. We do ask that the balance is settled at maximum 30 days after the product is in stock.
We offer delivery to United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland (Eire). Please note that we will only ship to cardholder address. Any order requested to ship to an alternative address including PO Box or shipping forwarders cannot be processed and will be refunded. We are only covered for goods shipping to the card address.
Orders received by 12PM are usually posted that same day. If any delays are expected, a member of staff will contact you to inform you.
Delivery is calculated by weight and is FREE to UK Mainland excluding highlands and islands. Depending on the item, our courier choices are Royal Mail, ParcelForce or MyHermes for UK & Northern Ireland orders.
For premium items, we usually ship using ParcelForce AM delivery which aims to get to you next working day morning.
If you are not happy with any of the above couriers, just let us know and we can look at alternatives such as DPD, TNT, Interparcel, UPS and others.
We carefully pack your items in additional packaging to try and get them to you in good condition. Smaller items are packed with additional air packing, a brown shipping box and cross strapped with fragile tape. Larger items may rely on their original brown shipping boxes as courier prices vary by size.
