The Cult of Osiris, also known as the Followers of Osiris, is a religious group composed of the non-Guardian disciples of the exiled Warlock Osiris. Although none of the Cult's members met Osiris until the months following the Red War, they zealously followed his teachings in an attempt to understand the true nature of Light and Darkness. In an effort to recruit Guardians to their cause, the Cult hosted the Trials of Osiris Crucible tournament.

Overview[edit]

The Cult of Osiris originally maintained a camp at The Lighthouse in Caloris Spires on Mercury, and permitted only the victors of the Trials of Osiris to enter. At some point, this camp was abandoned in favor of a new sanctuary, also called The Lighthouse, in the Fields of Glass overlooking the main gateway to the Vex's Infinite Forest.

The Cult also had a small temple in the basement of a radio tower at in the European Dead Zone on Earth, but this enclave was wiped out by House of Dusk scavengers in the months after the Red War.

Some of the Cult's writings include the "Parables of the Allspring" and the "Fractal Scrolls". Cultists have a low opinion of the Speaker for having exiled Osiris, some going so far as to call him a charlatan.[1]

Conversely, Ikora Rey has a low opinion of the cultists as well, claiming that they only follow the idea of Osiris and know nothing of the man himself. In fact, before his exile, Osiris himself was annoyed how they treated him like a celebrity and resented how his "followers" treated his research like holy texts instead of knowledge to learn from.

Ikora, while having a low opinion of them, does see some use for the Cultists, normally involving information. The Warlock Vanguard normally ignores their conspiracy theories but often makes use of their information and contacts with her Hidden agents.
