European Dead Zone
From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
The European Dead Zone, also known as the EDZ or simply Dead Zone, is a region on Earth. The EDZ is filled with ruins dating back to the Golden Age and earlier, but one of its most notable landmarks is a massive shard of the Traveler that was broken off of the Traveler during the Collapse. The Fallen House of Devils was known to have a presence in the EDZ before their disappearance due to the SIVA Crisis. By the time of the Red War, the Fallen had returned to the area under a new banner and their presence, combined with that of a Cabal occupational force and Taken remnants, transformed the EDZ into a warzone.
The Red Legion began occupying the Zone after The Last City was invaded. Guardians began to travel to the European Dead Zone in order to reclaim their powers from the Traveler's shard found there. The region contains many Lost Sectors, Patrols, and Public Events to partake in, as well as twenty-one Region Chests to find. The Fallen House of Dusk are also active in the Dead Zone, as well as Taken remnants from the Taken War who continue to linger within the region.
Some time ago, possibly during the Collapse, an unknown event occurred that left a massive shard of the Traveler stuck in the EDZ. This shard caused the region to become completely deserted, safe for some human explorers.
Following the invasion of The Last City, Dominus Ghaul deployed his forces to mobilize within the region, causing the region to become a major warzone between the Taken, Fallen, and Cabal. Guardian forces also fled to the Dead Zone in order to hide and recover from the invasion, establishing The Farm as a new base of operations. However once the Last City was reclaimed the EDZ became a bastion for the remnants of the Red Legion, who over the course of several Adventures and questlines across the years, have attempted to regain a foothold on Earth to little effect.
