From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
Acrius was the mythical first Emperor of the Cabal. According to the legend, Acrius desired to claim the sun, succeeding in taking it, and became an Emperor for doing so. Cabal leaders throughout history have utilized the Acrius myth as a rhetorical and political justification for conquest, including Dominus Ghaul. Tyra Karn believed that Ghaul had a personal affinity for the myth.
