The Broken are a faction of Taken entities who were initially left leaderless after the death of Oryx, the Taken King. Once used as the Hive Gods' personal armies, the Broken have regained their free will, and have banded together to oppose the Hive and free their brethren


In terms are appearance and abilities, there is little separating the Broken from the rest of their Taken brethren: ghostly, powerful, and willing to fight for their masters and allies. The main difference is in how they act. Despite the fact that they are Taken, the Broken, thanks to the efforts of their worm, Fel, retain a sense of free-will and independent thought, similar to Riven, Malok and Quria The Broken will usually try to avoid confrontation if possible, sometimes though diplomacy, but mostly through hiding and ignoring other enemies. The Broken have some form of pseudo-hivemind. They are connected to eachother through thoughts and emotions, but there is no guiding hand that controls them.
