"The Scorn are supposed to be mindless. But these... they're powerful. Organized."
The Ghost

Brutiks, Lightbane is a giant Scorn Ravager who appears within the Temple of the Wrathful, and is the final boss of The Ghosts Mission. It is shown to be powerful enough to rival the strength of Reksis Vahn, the Hangman, so much so that the Ghost even questions whether or not it might be a new Baron.[1]


Brutiks is first encountered by the player when they enter the depths of the Temple of the Wrathful. The Ravager possess an immunity shield and cannot initially be damaged. It will slowly advance towards the player to swing at them with its Flame Censer. There are four openings at each corner of the arena, three of which are marked by large projections of Hive runes. The path on the far left does not have a rune, and two Luminous Eye Shriekers will spawn if you go down it. The other three will each lead to crystal, each protected by an immunity shield and a group of Scorn combatants. To destroy the crystals, you must kill the Shimmering Chieftains guarding them, which will disable their shields and allow you to damage them. Once all three are gone, a final crystal will appear in the center of the main area. Destroying it will disable Brutiks's shield, but it will immediately teleport away.

The player will have to progress through the mission to reach the Shell of Sagira, located in the final arena. Upon arriving, the Ravager will spawn alongside a Shimmering Chieftain and a shielded crystal. The mechanics of the boss are the same as before; destroying all three crystals will render it vulnerable to damage. This must be done twice in the duration of the boss fight, every time it loses a third of its health. The crystal that spawns with the Brutiks, however, is the only one that needs to be destroyed for the first damage phase. Once defenseless, Brutiks will charge at the player to attack with its censer. Several Scorn enemies will also arrive to fight alongside it. The layout of this arena is different from the one before; there are only three, shorter paths, and none of them lead to a trap.
