"Whatever you do, don’t trust anything she touches. I promise you, it’ll bite."
—Cayde-6[1]

Araskes, the Trickster, is a Baron of the Scorn. Little is known about her beyond legends of her own creation. As the spokesman and envoy of the Scorn, she is often the first to strike. Utilising cloaking technology and leaving traps for unsuspecting enemies, Araskes has little skill in all-out battle beyond her ability to avoid it.[1] She was captured alongside the other Scorn Barons and imprisoned within the Prison of Elders. A year after the events of the Red War she was freed by Uldren Sov and was witness to the murder of Cayde-6 at his hand.[1] She established herself in Diaviks Mine afterward.

Gameplay[edit]

True to her nature, Araskes engages in little direct combat, preferring to use her smoke dash ability to escape trouble. She will also deploy Web Mines disguised as loot as well as bombs made to resemble Exotic Engrams, both as a means to distract and trick Guardians as she is chased down. When cornered, she will chip away at The Guardian's health from a distance with her Scorn Rifle, stomp the ground when faced at close range, teleport to evade or flank her opponent, and call for aid from lesser Scorn units. Due to her tendency to slip away from an engagement, it is best to keep watch of her by following her smoke trails. Once spotted again, one must keep the attack on her as to not let her escape.
