Premise and enemies[edit]

"Red Legion Psions are meddling with forces best left alone. Investigate their connection to dark forces in the region."

Story details[edit]

  • Defeat Enhanced Centurions.
  • Disable Centurion Shield.
  • Search the Dark Forest.
  • Find the Psionic Source.
  • End the Taken Crisis.


  • Cayde-6: Yello. Cayde speaking. Oh, hang on, someone left a note here. "EDZ forest. Taken energy, question mark. Red Legion... Brian." ...who's Brian?
  • Ikora Rey: Red Legion Psions. Guardian, we've heard disturbing reports from your area. They tell of Cabal with new powers.
  • Ghost: That Psion... is it shielding that Centurion?
  • Ikora: Shielding? Then they are harnessing the energy of the Taken. But how?
  • Ghost: Red Legion Psions are bad enough. But if they really have Taken powers?
  • Cayde: Since when did Cabal and Taken start sharing toys, anyway?
  • Ikora: We can figure out the connection later. For now, we must uncover the source of this energy.
  • Ghost: No good. Taken energy readings are increasing. I bet it's spreading to Psions all over the area.
  • Ikora: If that's true, it could bring a plague of shadow beyond our imagining.
  • Cayde: Ikora, you're freaking them out.
  • Ghost: Got it! I pulled location data from that Centurion. But we have to go... into the forest.
  • Cayde: You sure about that, buddy? Don't wanna get, you know, eaten by a creepy Taken shadow tree.
  • Ikora: Cayde, what exactly happened to you on Nessus?
  • Cayde: They get eaten yet?
  • Ikora: No, they did not "get eaten yet". But use caution. We don't know what's waiting in that forest.
  • Cayde: My Glimmer's on something big and Taken.
  • Ikora: That may be the safest bet you've made in years.
  • Ghost: That portal connects to the forest. The Psions found a way to force it open!
  • Cayde: Well, it was nice knowing you.
  • Ikora: Cayde.
  • Ghost: Did you see that? He got stunned when we took out his Psion.
  • Ikora: Severing their bond must cause a backlash to the host. Interesting.
  • Cayde: Am I the only one who has no idea what any of you are talking about?
  • Ikora: Yes.
  • Ghost: Okay, there are a lot more Cabal than I was expecting.
  • Cayde: Well, they may not like you trespassing in their secret magic fort.
  • Ghost: Big Taken. Taken Cabal! Big... Taken Cabal!
  • Ikora: A Colossus. Of course. You must destroy it.
  • Ghost: Working on it!
  • Ghost: Whew! We did it. They're all gone.
  • Cayde: Well that'll set the Legion back a ways. Serves 'em right for messing with things they don't understand.
  • Ikora: Which is your area of expertise, after all. As for you, Guardian: well done. If that brute had gotten loose with the Psions, there may have been no stopping it.
  • Cayde: And then I couldn't have collected on that bet! Big and Taken. Told you.


  • The Psions are learned how to use Taken energy to power up their troops with an unbreakable shield around them.
