Aksor, Archon Priest is a Fallen Archon of the House of Wolves who was detained inside the Prison of Elders only to be broken out by the House of Winter in a bid for him to join their House. He is the boss of the Winter's Run strike mission. [2]

Biography[edit]

A servant of Kaliks Prime, Aksor served as the Archon of the House of Wolves during the Reef Wars. He was responsible for numerous campaigns against both Awoken enclaves and Human settlements.[3] He was imprisoned in the Prison of Elders in the Reef, but the House of Winter used the mercenary Taniks, the Scarred to break him out, and tried to restore his ether.[4] He comes out of his capsule to attack Guardians.[5]

Gameplay[edit]

Aksor, Archon Priest has two main abilities consistent with other known Fallen Archons: Teleportation and an Ultra Smash. He often teleports between locations in order to get a clear shot at targets or disrupt a shooter's line of sight. He can cover a great distance with this ability. When combatants close within melee range, he employs a devastating area of effect stomp attack similar to House of Devils Archon, Riksis. He uses this attack fairly often as he normally attempts to corner Guardians into an area where they cannot run. For ranged combat, he uses a Shrapnel Launcher. He fires this weapon at an incredibly fast rate, comparable to the MIDA Multi-Tool, allowing him to take down Guardians quickly so he can switch to his next target.

It is, however, possible to stunlock Aksor with sustained headshots, allowing the player to keep him pinned down and deal as much damage as possible. Repeated headshots can melt his health within seconds.

Trivia[edit]

  • Aksor is presumably a member of the House of Wolves based on his lore, but his killcam shows no affiliation to any house (although his robes and color scheme suggest he is a member of the House of Kings and strangely around his cell there are numerous King banners instead of Winter ones).
  • In the Taken version of the Winter's Run strike, Aksor is replaced as the Strike's boss by Nixis, Hunger of Oryx.
  • According to the Grimoire "Aksor initiated brutal crusades against human settlements beyond the City" before he was captured by the Reef.
  • It is possible that the abandoned Reef ketch, The Drifter, was once occupied by the House of Winter forces that freed Aksor or an attempt which failed.
  • Archon Servants found in the Prison of Elders also belong to the House of Kings and serve Kaliks Reborn. This adds speculation as to whether Aksor belonged to the House of Kings.
