"You have completed the challenge of the Emperor. He is... amused by your potential. You have greatness in your future. And perhaps, someday... But that is not for I, a humble servant, to say. Embrace his name, all glory to the Emperor."
— Benedict 99-40

Benedict 99-40 is a Frame in the Tower Bazaar who has been remotely hacked by Emperor Calus's Loyalists. After completing the Leviathan Raid for the first time, Benedict offers rewards to Guardians in exchange for Emperor Calus Tokens. Each week, Benedict will sell a full set of armor and a weapon comprised of different armor pieces from The Leviathan Raid normal and prestige mode, Leviathan, Eater of Worlds, and Leviathan, Spire of Stars. However, to purchase these armor pieces and weapons, one must first complete the raid that they originate from.

Biography[edit]

The Guardian came to Benedict while searching for a weapon stolen by a Shadow of Calus from the Vanguard vault, The Fourth Horseman. Benedict claimed that Calus had predicted the Young Wolf would come seeking the weapon and revealed that the Shadow who had stolen it had done so to use it against the Red Legion. However, the Shadow was killed by agents of Caiatl, Calus' estranged daughter. Benedict offered to decrypt the remnants of the Shadows log the Guardian had discovered in order to locate the weapon, but required encryption data from the Red Legion on Earth to do so. Upon decrypting the data, Benedict informed the Guardian that they had located the weapon in The Quarry and that Calus wished for the Young Wolf to retrieve the weapon and massacre the Red Legion present there.[1]

Quotes[edit]

  • "The Emperor has been to the edge of the Universe and back. He returns to you now at the news that Ghaul of the Red Legion is dead. He expects all Cabal no matter their ideology or creed to return to his loving embrace."
  • "You have exceeded the Emperor's expectations. He sees now you are unafraid to indulge your true appetites. The Emperor believes you are ready to be taught. As he was taught. Personally, I think you just like shiny things. But what do I know? I live in a closet."
  • "You are Traveler-Spawn. Do you know what that means?"
  • "Calus has seen the end."
  • "Your Speaker has been...untruthful."
  • "You have no idea what is coming."
  • "Emperor Calus has spoken."
  • "When a Shadow falls, another rises."
  • "His graciousness is watching you."

Trivia[edit]

  • As noted by the Drifter, the Vanguard seems to be aware of Benedict's presence and purpose, but has yet to act upon the information.
