"Ghaul sought a power too weak to jumpstart a broken, dead empire. Which is why he failed. And which is why we will succeed. Seek us out, and you will conceive true power. Then, the Lightbearers will truly know death."
Dominus Xaruun

The Neon Wraiths is a research and development detachment distinguishable by their black armor and cyan painting and lights, with a few bearing an icy appearance thanks to the effects of Stasis. Commanded by former Primus Xaruun, the weapons development group splintered off the Red Legion prior to the Red War to freely conduct research on hostile weaponry and tactics to repurpose for themselves. Following the events of Beyond Light, the Legion would utilize some intercepted House of Salvation tech, comms and abducted engineers and begin researching the Darkness and it's paracausal abilities, eventually developing a means of harnessing Stasis much like their Fallen prisoners. They serve as the main antagonists of the Season of Strife.



"The Red Legion, even with its numerous resources and advanced tech, simply does not allow innovation to flourish. Even if this plan was successful, pride will get in the way of actual progress. It's time we act on our accord. It's time we make a real change for our people. For the better."
— Former Red Legion Primus Xaruun

Before the Red War, the once esteemed Primus of the Red Legion, Xaruun would begin to question the current technological power and standing of his group as well as the potential and inevitable future of his army were they to go through with the plan to harvest the Traveler's Light. Over time, the Primus would begin to rally a bunch of his most loyal followers, trusted lieutenants and most brilliant minds technological and scientific minds before finally splintering off from the legion to form their very own. Despite becoming traitors of the Cabal Empire, the Red Legion would ignore the mutiny and would continue with their plan to assault Humanity's Last City. Without the threat of the undoubtedly larger Legion they came from, the Wraiths would finally begin work on new weapons, tactics and vehicle designs in peace, utilizing scrap metal and circuitry from extra weaponry and extraneous Warships and their reserves of vehicles. At the time, such accomplishments included Hoplite, Vilicus, Argonaut and Aestus infantry, the different Scorpius turret variants, Slug Repeater, Excavation Rifle and Drill Launcher weaponry and Imperator dropships.

Rise of Opportunities and the Seizing of Them[edit]

A Shattered Legion[edit]

"Thumos, old friend, it's not like you for this to happen to you."
"Xaruun? Wh-where am I? What... happened to my people?"
"Exactly what I feared, good friend.
— Xaruun conversing to a hospitalized Thumos

Dark Temptations[edit]

"They have finally reared their ugly head. Whether it's a good thing or a bad thing is Xaruun's decision. Me? As long as it gets our enemies more at each other's throats, I'm more than happy."
Bracus Paraquos

One Empire to Another[edit]

"The Fallen on the moon they call "Europa" seemed have begun weaponizing and utilizing the powers of these Pyramids. Perhaps, if we were to get them to talk, we could learn a thing or two from them. Then we will finally achieve what Ghaul childishly pursued. Godhood."
Primus Pro'taul

Season of Strife[edit]

The Initial Invasion[edit]

"Alright troops, listen up! Now we are finally making our move within this Acrius-forsaken system. We are going to establish a foothold on each and every one of these worlds and push back any hostile entrenched there. Remember: push, box, corner, kill. That's how we win. Here's your objectives-"
— Intercepted comms from a Neon Wraith Centurion

Following the Season of the Chosen, now armed with the powers and weaponry of Stasis, Xaruun finally ordered the Wraiths out of the shadows and into war. With all of the factions in a weakened state and the Vanguard still deciding a plan of confrontation with the Pyramids, the Wraiths easily overwhelmed their opponents and laid claim to the various corners of the Solar System and established their strongholds and research operations all over. Although the Legion, with all of it's might, has yet to make their move against the Last City, the Vanguard would organize a plan of counterassault against the Legion, calling all Guardians to do everything in their power to sabotage their operations and take out their leadership, most notable of which was one of the Legion's Primus's who was currently scouting and overseeing most of the Legion's current operations, Primus Pro'taul.

Pro'taul's Tour[edit]

"Pro'taul is a smart boy. He can guess the gravity of his situation. Hopefully, he finds out the answer before he idiotically gets himself killed in the process."
— Dominus Xaruun

Dark, Buried Secrets[edit]

"I gave her the moniker, Entrusted, for a reason. I have no doubt Paraquos will pull through for Project Black Horizons. Even if it costs her her own life. She knows that. But I know she doesn't care. And that's why she is a Bracus."
— Dominus Xaruun

Ploy of the Vengeful Bloodguard[edit]

"Sure, I'm loyal to my good friend and commander, but I don't fight for the Wraiths for honor and glory. I don't fight to finally go home. I fight because I'm going to ensure that, this time, I break someone who broke me."
Thumos, Blood of Phantoms

Wrath of the Shattered Tusk[edit]

"The Guardians keep making us look like fools. Like the Sand Eaters. Time to actually make a difference. Get my team on the line. Tell them simply to get to work. They'll know what I'm talking about. They always do."
Primus Thru'urn

The Long Slow Whisper[edit]

"In my travel to the Crypt, not only did I accomplish evolution as the Fallen did, but I also found a means to cripple Humanity without utterly destroying them. And I'm on my way to see to it myself."
Primus Lho'tam-1

Last Gasp[edit]

"I know you were probably expecting some big old dramatic and climactic battle for the fate of your home with some big old gun pointed straight at your friends. In truth, however, you mistake me for that kind of Cabal and, well, I think we both know I wouldn't survive that. As a matter of fact, I left this message as a gesture of good faith and a reminder that we are allies bound against unconventional enemies... you know who I'm talking about. At first, I thought it, this... power, was our means to return to glory, our chance at seizing vengeance for what you stole from us. It blinded me. I was lucky I realized it before it was too late. I heard the voice behind it and how it encouraged things even I would consider... vile. I will not be a servant to it. But redemption among the Cabal is a very fickle matter as you'll soon learn and Caiatl wouldn't be so enthusiastic about me returning to her ranks and have me killed on the spot. So, I'm going to do the only thing I can do: bring the fight to it. This will probably be the final words you will hear from me and that's fine for the both of us, I presume. War is coming my friend, and your world happens to have the unfortunate fate of being stuck right between the battle lines. I can't explain the gravity of what is to come, so all I can say is, be ready. If, by miracle, I survive, I do hope to see you again. I owe you the battle you deserve."
