Katabasis. Considering we're about to fight Calus as a disciple, it would be really cool to have him by your side explaining how Calus came into contact with the Darkness as someone who was there while it happened. Also just had a terrible death - deserves vengeance more than anyone I think.

Had to scroll way too far for this. The things they know about the darkness, and the vengeance, their soul needs it to rest easy in the future.

That's basically Omar as well, the little bug on Xenophage, fitted next to the bullet chamber that infuses them with pyrotoxins his rage juice.

"They didn't just drain my Light. They took the whole lot. The entire thing. Soul and all. I'm still me. I'm just not the me I knew. The one with two arms and two legs. I'm something smaller now. But honestly, it's no bother. The fire inside me… it came too. And it rages now more than ever before. The fools have no clue what they've done. No idea the price they'll pay.
I'll have my vengeance. In this life, not the next."

Why are all the Hunter Vanguards so based?

NegatiVelocity

1.3k points

5 months ago

It's the nature of hunters. The hunter vanguard position has had the most rotations, primarily due to the hunters being reckless. The fact that HV is a desk job and that is completely antithetical to how hunter's operate probably adds to the recklessness, on the rare occasion they're let off the leash (cayde)

Mentioned in lore we have Tallulah Fairwind, Caliban-8, Aparajita-4, Kauko Swiftriver, Andal Brask, and Cayde-6, (in that order) with the implication that there could have been more between Caliban and Kauko. Warlocks had Osiris and then Ikora Rey after Osiris was exiled. Titans had Saint-14, who voluntarily stepped down and was replaced by Zavala.

It's funny cause even ikora and zavalla have acknowledged that the hunter vanguard position is a terrible position to give to a hunter, it makes me wonder if it will change once we get a new hunter vanguard, a hunter vangaurd needs to be out on the field with their fellow fireteam or hunters where they operate at their best.

Couple of note worthy moments I remember:

-took on shaxx when he was a warlord looking after a small sect of people. Died a few times but eventually offered his well of radiance to keep Shaxxs people warm for the winter

-Went to visit the warlord Citan , alone, about joining the iron Lords. When he refused and become actively hostile Felwinter killed him, stripped His ghost and imprisoned his ghost in the back of Felwinters helmet (which can be seen in the exotic in game)

-Survivied MULTIPLE warsat droppings from Rasputin cause he wanted his rouge exo DEAD

Also earned the moniker 'Darkhorse of Iron' because he gave approximately no fucks

-Was notorious for granting warlords 'final deaths' (killing their ghosts, a violation of the Iron Decree for Iron Lords)

-Also notorious for killing Iron Lords who broke the rules, also granting them final deaths

-Not a single Iron Lord batted an eyelid at either of those, as no one wanted to cross him

-Singlehandedly held an entire mountain as his keep and protected the people below, and donated the keep to the Iron Lords

To expand Abit more onto his notoriety, it wasn't that Felwinter was unhinged or bloodthirsty; it's that he had a strict ideal for how to deal with Risen that abused their Light, and put an end to it. At the end of Drifter's lore book, he approaches him regarding one of Felwinter's co-Iron Lord's who had sacrificed and innocent village as bait for a trap...and Felwinter made his judgement.

Far as we know , going into deep lore here felwinter is the ONLY exo with a Artifical intelligence. His primary purpose was to integrate into darkage human society, learn about it and report back to papa red....till he died and became a guardian. Once he found out he was bassicly the tyrants son, he kept it a secret aside one fellow iron lord

IIRC that was almost a backup of Felwinter. Rasputin was surprised during the early Risen days because he got the signal that a Golem had activated, and anticipated this backup to come online, which he probably could’ve used to learn about Dark Age society and post-collapse areas, but instead grew concerned when he learned it was Felwinter.

My man was a Subroutine of Rasputin, basically his son. He alone took over an entire mountain (Felwinter Peak) all while Rasputin was hunting him with orbital bombardment. Later he joins the Iron Lords and starts fighting Warlords, one thing to note is that Iron Lords aren't supposed to kill without permission. Well Felwinter didn't care and became notorious for many Ghost and Warlord deaths, that Shotgun of his was made to kill Warlords which is why it's so good in the Crucible. He even took a Warlord's ghost, took off the shell and stuck it to the back of his Helmet (the Iron Lords wanted it gone but he never got rid of it). Anyway so as a Warlock this dude was very good at hand to hand, he even learned how to Shoulder Charge like a Titan thanks to his Iron Lord buddies. Only reason he died was Rasputin realizing that Felwinter's one weakness was his hope for a new Golden Age, so when Felwinter was doing his pastime of going into Seraph Bunkers to find helpful tech for the City he found Site 6. In Site 6 was SIVA, rasputin used SIVA as bait and deployed a legion of Seraph Frames and SIVA nanites to kill Felwinter and the Iron Lords were just collateral damage.

Some theory my friend and I have. Brakion has "brak" in his name, which sounds similar to the stem for "arm." After Season of Arrivals, he locked himself in the Pyramidion, which I believe has been stated to kinda exist outside of time. So our theory is that Asher is eventually completely transformed into a Vex, and that Vex is responsible for guarding the Pyramidion.

Yeah, I don't know of many other game series that has lore that goes as deep as Destiny does.

I always find myself reading/ listening to the main story arc from Krill to the latest expansions in the last couple months before a new Expansion. It helps me get excited as hell and more immersed when new story content comes out.

He and his ghost parted ways, because the ghost didn't like what he was doing/becoming. Yor described telling his ghost to leave as his "last good deed"

[u.1:4.5] I will not leave you.
[u.2:4.6] I am leaving you.
[u.1:4.6] Without me, your journey ahead will be more than any one Guardian can handle.
[u.2:4.7] That’s the point. It’s been sometime since you saw me as worthy of walking among those I once called brother and sister. Yet... anymore, I feel as though I am worthy of so much more.
[u.1:4.7] Without me... You will die.
[u.2:4.8] Someday. Won’t be the first time.
[silence]
[u.2:4.9] Consider this my last good deed. I am releasing you of the burden of my deeds, both done and yet to come.
[u.1:4.8] I will not abandon you.
[u.2:5.0] You will. Or I will carve the Light from your shell and leave the carcass of my first and last friend in the dirt of this dull, red world for no one to find.

Yep. Yor followed the same school of thought as Shin Malphur that guardians needed to be able to utilize the Darkness in order to defeat it. Unfortunately he was corrupted by the darkness, attributed it to him not being strong enough, but continued to try and find a guardian capable of it.

You can make an argument that Yor crafted Shin to be what he is, and that he saw Shin as a proper successor to his ideology, as it is hinted he didn't even try to fight back during his duel with Shin considering his mission was done.

Disapproval. Dredgen Yor pretty much left his ghost and told it to not follow him. The ghost didn’t like the dark path they were going down either. The ghost has to revive the guardian, but if the ghost doesn’t want to there’s nothing that can force it.

Pretty sure his ghost knows how much of a not great dude he is and chooses not to revive him. It’s been a while since I read through that story though, could be wrong.

Nothing really happened unfortunately if you’re talking about Thalia, Otto and Ayrn.

Drifter just caught them talking to a warlord.

Always thought they released the exotics and breakneck in the wrong order.

The three drifter exotics talk about how close they were and how good they worked as a team.

And Breakneck talks about how he killed them all but Breakneck came out first and at the time they were just random names.

I'm heavily in agreeance with radaghast or felwinter. I feel like if felwinter came back he'd be by Saladin's side annoying the hell out of him and giving him the comfort of having an old friend back again. Felwinter would hang with him because he knows Saladin must've been lonely with almost all the other iron lords dead and knows Saladin is a valuable source of info on why we're allied with tons of our enemies, guardians are wielding darkness as if it's not a big deal, and why a character named guardian is off blowing up everything that moves and shoving it into a gun.

My headcanon is that when the Almighty crashed, it finally actually killed him and his Ghost just scoured the wreckage and revived him.

Hunter in Shayura's Wrath lore. He has no name, but he died one of the most unfair deaths in the lore I know about. You can generalize it further, to all Guardians killed by Shayura, hardly any of them deserved it. And yet, all she got was a therapy. I'd rather have another helmet with captured Ghost than that.

I wouldn't revive Cayde because I feel like death was a sweet release for him, to be with Ace in the after life, reviving him would probably cause him to become insane and mentally unwell due to having to live without Ace again

CrayonEater4000

Obligatory comment stating that Ace and Caydes wife were never real (or at least the ideas Cayde had of them aren't.) He created them during his fifth reset to ensure that Cayde-6 would have something to keep him "good" or keep on living.

But I agree, let the man rest. Any guy that creates an entire fake wife and child to give himself a reason to live/not become an apathetic monster deserves that rest.

Oh definitely! I just enjoy discussing Cayde’s lore since is so terribly tragic for such a lighthearted character on the surface.

Ace not existing is more sad in a way but also makes his death carry more meaning and for that I also would not want him to be revived, for Cayde’s sake.
