"Eris Morn returned to the Vestian Outpost. Because she spoke well, it was agreed that aid would be traded for intelligence and a long-term alliance. In this way, the Awoken were the first to know of the Great Navigator: his philosophies, his strategies, his weaknesses. And as the coven contemplated the possibilities laid wide before this god-king's far-flung sword, it was decreed that they would build a throne world beneath an energy well as blind as the ferryman Charon."
— Throne

Eleusinia is an Throne World that serves as the setting of "The Shattered Throne" Dungeon. Made for the Light despite its origins in the Sword Logic,[1] Its served as a sanctuary for Mara Sov to prevent her death during the onset of the Taken War, with knowledge of the Sword Logic provided by Eris Morn and built with the aid of her Techeuns and Riven. Its entry is accessible through a gateway built beneath the Blind Well in the Dreaming City.[2]

It was desecrated by Oryx, the Taken King during the Taken War, and its corruption began seeping itself into the Dreaming City, cursing it as a result of Riven's last wish. It is also a staging ground for Savathûn's daughter, Dûl Incaru, the Eternal Return, who commands the Taken curse.

Trivia[edit]

  • Eleusinia is the second known Throne World formed by a being that is not a Hive or Worm. Notably, it was constructed "artificially" with the use of Riven's wish-magic and the Sword Logic.
  • The name Eleusinia is similar to the ancient Greek city of Eleusis, which is also the site of the similarly named Eleusinian Mysteries which are yearly initiations held for the cult of Demeter and Persephone.
