Brakion, Genesis Mind
From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
Brakion oversees the Pyramidion at its core and therefore coordinates the Vex's efforts of converting Io into a Machine world. It reconfigured reality within the Vex structure to halt a failed Guardian expedition attempting to invade the Pyramidion, led by Asher Mir whom Brakion captured at the shores of a radiolarian lake. It subjected the captive Asher and his team to experiments injecting radiolaria and grafting Vex technology; some which converted the latter's arm and Ghost into Vex constructs before he could escape.
Years later, another fireteam of Guardians guided by Ikora Rey and an extremely vengeful Asher Mir entered into Pyramidion despite heavy Vex resistance and leftover Taken from Ir Arok, Tongue of Quria's excursion. Upon delving into the self-criticality of the synthoneural terminus, they summon Brakion and put an immediate end to the Vex mind much to Asher's satisfaction.
Brakion will enter the arena when the plate in front of it is stood on for long enough. It will open fire with its Line Rifle and occasionally follow up with Void flame projectiles that create a circle of purple fire upon impact. After its health has been reduced by a third, it will teleport to another location; it will be immune while teleporting. It will then surround itself in a Vex barrier that can only be disabled by capturing a Sync Plate. Other Vex will defend this plate, so killing them all is advised. Brakion is able to shoot through this barrier. After capturing this Sync Plate, Brakion will resume its attack, but will teleport to another corner and put up another Vex Barrier shortly after. Once the barriers have been disabled, Brakion will assault the player directly, and will eventually enter berserk mode. It will remain in this state until it is defeated.
