Confronting Warlord Shaxx[edit]

"No one’s beat Shaxx in a fight. Iron Lords or Warlords. Much less take territory from him."
— Efrideet, during a strategy meeting about Warlord Shaxx

Having joined the Iron Lords, Efrideet joined their war against the Warlords. After decades of conflict, Efrideet joined Saladin Forge and Felwinter within a Warlock meditation chamber within Felwinter Peak to plan how to deal with the legendary Warlord Shaxx's mountain fortress. Felwinter announced that Shaxx had accepted his challenge to one-on-one combat, but Efrideet was skeptical of his plan due as no Iron Lord or Warlord had ever bested the Titan. Felwinter countered that Ikora Rey had and that he could too before questioning if either had a better idea. Saladin conceded that Lord Radegast was planning a head-on assault, shocking Efrideet due to the nearly hundred civilians living in the fortress who could be caught in the crossfire. She refused to believe that their commander truly intended to go through with the assault, but Saladin noted that Radegast was tired of fighting, but Efrideet did not believe that was a good excuse.[2]

The trio traveled to Shaxx's fortress, discovering his people were seemingly well-fed and had winter clothing. They found the Warlord making repairs to his fortress to weatherproof it for the coming change in weather. Felwinter attempted to convince Shaxx to join, but the Warlord questioned if he had given Citan the same speech before killing him. Efrideet carefully kept her face neutral and ignored Saladin looking at her in shock, keeping ready to draw her hand cannon in case things turned violent. Failing to persuade Shaxx to join the Iron Lords or the growing Last City, they proceeded outside where Efrideet and Saladin watched as Shaxx defeated Felwinter in seconds. Conferring in the aftermath of the duel, Felwinter declared he would stay and continue challenging Shaxx. Efrideet noted that the local Warlords would respect that, although they were all needed to join a concentrated strike against the House of Devils in the Cosmodrome. She was also concerned that Shaxx would target Felwinter's Ghost, Felspring, as he had multiple confirmed kills of other Warlords, but Felwinter did not believe that Shaxx would attempt to truly kill him. Saladin agreed with the plan but declared that he expected that all Felwinter would do is buy them time to deal with the Fallen and then return in force. As she and Saladin left their comrade to his work, Efrideet expressed surprise that Saladin did not know that Felwinter was a oathbreaker and that was why Radegast hated him. Saladin admitted he did not and questioned why Felwinter was still tolerated. She informed him that Felwinter had provided evidence that all the Warlords he murdered has killed Ghosts, civilians, and other crimes that broke the Iron Decree but had never requested permission for any of his executions. Efrideet then hoped that they had another plan other than assaulting the mountain once the Devil uprising had been put down, but Saladin stated that Shaxx was forcing their hand and that they could not risk other Warlords who would be less careful attack first.[2]

Several weeks later Efrideet and Saladin led a army of Iron Lords to Shaxx's mountain stronghold, having put down the Devil activity in the Cosmodrome. They found a dozen minor local Warlords had arrived to side with Shaxx against the Iron Lords, but as the two sides entered a tense standoff Shaxx dismissed his reinforcements, having agreed to allow his people to be evacuated but still refusing to join the Iron Lords. Efrideet questioned who had won their duels, and Felwinter freely admitted that Shaxx had as the two then began making preparations for the evacuation. After returning to Felwinter Peak, Efrideet listened as Felwinter revealed his true reason for wanting to secure Shaxx's stronghold: a Seraph Bunker beneath the fortress that contained clues to where the Warmind Rasputin was hiding valuable Golden Age technology.[2]

Fall of the Iron Lords[edit]

Apart from Lord Saladin, Efrideet is the only Iron Lord to have survived the original SIVA outbreak. She kept her survival a secret from Saladin, having witnessed the fall of her friends and lost the will to fight. She eventually journeyed to the outer rim of the Solar System and joined a hidden enclave of Guardians who had learned to use their Light in peaceful ways.

Return to Felwinter Peak[edit]

Centuries later, with the onset of the SIVA Crisis, Efrideet returned to the Iron Temple to assist Saladin and fulfill her responsibility to the Iron Banner.[3]

The Red War[edit]

After the Red Legion captured the Last City and imprisoned the Traveler, Efrideet and the other Guardians were stripped of their Light. Her enclave cut off communication during the crisis, so Efrideet joined the resistance against the Red Legion in the guise of a refugee and participated in the assault to reclaim the Last City and kill Ghaul. Taking position on a rooftop with her sniper rifle, she killed 216 Cabal with 199 shots. During the battle, the Traveler awoke to destroy Ghaul and freed itself. With the Light returned to her, Efrideet began to cry with joy at the sight of the Traveler awakened. Her enclave then contacted her, as they felt the return of the Light as well. They informed her that the whole cosmos was now ablaze with Light, and Efrideet informed them she would be coming home.[4]

A New Golden Age[edit]

Efrideet's departure prompted Lord Saladin Forge to take over her Iron Banner responsibilities.[5]

During the first Dawning following the liberation of the Last City, Efrideet contacted Tyra Karn. They wished each other a happy Dawning, and Efrideet offered an ornament for Tyra's ship as a Dawning gift, but was told to give it to the ship's current owner, as Tyra no longer wished to travel the stars. She then listened to her old friend's concerns about the Guardians being blinded by the awakening of the Traveler and forgetting the lessons they learned from the loss of their Light.[6]
