"We’re all thieves. Some of us are just better at it."
— Elykris, the Machinist[2]

Elykris, the Machinist, is a Baroness of the Scorn. As the second-in-command of the Scorned Barons, she works as the group's expert in munitions and weapon crafting. She has become infamous for her raids on ships and settlements near Mars, as well as for her role in the Siege of Arran and in the heists after the Solis Descent.[2]

After being captured alongside most of her allies, she was imprisoned deep within the Prison of Elders. However, a year after the events of the Red War she was freed by Uldren Sov, and played a role in the murder of Cayde-6 at Sov's hand.[2] She later took up residence in Salvage Zone QX.

She can reappear as a boss if a player activates the Heroic version of the Ether Ritual Public Event, where she wields a Scorn Mine Launcher and is titled "Reanimated Machinist".


Elykris possesses multiple weapons in her arsenal, all of which have devastating consequences. In hand, she wields a Scorn Cannon, which fires explosive molten Ether fumes from long range, constantly blasting the player down and pounding away at their shield. She will also occasionally crouch and use her back-mounted munitions device to fire Scorn Rockets one after another, each of which deals high blast damage; every time her health reaches a certain threshold, she will duck down on the ground, surround herself with Void energy to negate all incoming damage akin to an Ether-Shield, and rapidly fire Solar orbital strikes from her munitions device before teleportating to another location shortly afterwards to directly continue her assault. This means the player has to contend with both direct combat and evasion simultaneously. Additionally, there are poisonous liquid pools littered throughout the arena, which can prove to be a deadly environmental hazard. The arena itself, however, is fairly large, and thus it is easy to space oneself from Elykris in order to safely and reliably damage her. Her movement is rather slow, so the player can continue to stay at an extended range for an easier engagement.


Elykris has shown herself to be quite avaricious, as whatever technology and weaponry she doesn't give to the Scorn, she keeps for herself. She seems to share Fikrul's sentiment on the Scorn being a family, or at least a close-knit brotherhood, as her lines about the Barons always standing together and the Scorn standing together forever are similar to some of Fikrul's own dialogue on the Scorn. She also seems to be wrathful, as she venomously calls Cayde-6's death "pathetic" and continuously growls at the Guardian about how their attempt at revenge is futile.

Elykris seemed to initially have a tumultuous relationship with fellow Baron Reksis Vahn, the Hangman as the latter would frequently sneak into her hoard to destroy her captured Servitors.



  • "They gave us nothing... so we'll take everything."
  • "Shipments... away. All our weapons... to Fikrul and the Awoken King."
  • "You want revenge? I watched Cayde die! Pathetic death!"
  • "The Scorned Barons... always stand together. Divide us... but you cannot break us."
  • "I bought them... time... The Scorn... the Barons... stand together... forever..."


  • The "Machinist" was originally the title for Vosik, the Archpriest, before it was changed.
  • Elykris is by far the tallest and leanest of all the barons, towering over them at 16 feet tall with Hiraks, the Mindbender being the only one who can match this as he becomes larger than her within his throne world.
  • Along with Araskes, the Trickster, she is one of two female Fallen shown to speak English.
  • The arena where you fight her in the Story mission is similar to Foundry 113, a location in the Plaguelands and starting area of the Wrath of the Machine raid.
