Oryx, the Taken King, born Aurash and formerly known as Auryx (meaning "Long Thought"), is the current sovereign of the Osmium Throne, the God-King of the Hive, and master of the Taken. Reborn from the Darkness itself through a wicked pact, Oryx is the founder of the Hive race and the source of their terrible power. Of all the Hive gods, he alone holds the power to bend other races to his will. Oryx is also the father of the dreaded Crota, a deadly Hive Prince who slew thousands of Guardians during the Great Disaster. Enraged at the death of his son, Oryx has traveled to the Solar System aboard his Dreadnaught seeking revenge but was slain twice, first in the material world and later in his Ascendant Realm, his second death permanent.
