Dendron, Root Mind
From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
Dendron, Root Mind is a Vex Axis Mind that features as the main boss of A Garden World Strike. First encountered in the Simulant Past of Mercury within the Infinite Forest, it played a significant role in not only Mercury's conversion into a Machine world, but also the creation of the Infinite Forest and by extension Panoptes, Infinite Mind.
Dendron is housed within a massive Vex Cyclops chassis, with gold and white detailing that marks it as a member of the Sol Primeval. It remains behind an impenetrable shield unless said shield is disrupted, either by destroying the matrix connected to it or by attacking the various minotaurs that appear. In attack mode, Dendron will circle around the battlefield and fire a Chronology Rifle, or fire a large Time Distortion projectile.
As the Vex Mind responsible for Mercury conversion into a machine world, Dendron channeled Arc energy into a Vex spire producing radiolaria across the planet's surface. It was met and destroyed by The Guardian and his Ghost possessed by Sagira, who were looking for the algorithm that created the Infinite Forest itself.
After the destruction of Panoptes, Osiris attempted to recreate the Root Mind under his control, only for the simulated Dendron to achieve sentience and attempted dominance over the Forest in Panoptes' place. It was then destroyed by a fireteam of Guardians under Osiris' request.
