Grasp of Nokris
The Grasp of Nokris is a Hive sect centered in the Hellas Basin in the polar ice caps of Mars. Dormant for centuries after the Collapse, they were awoken and acted in the name of their leader, Nokris, Herald of Xol and their Worm God Xol, Will of the Thousands. After Xol's death and defection to their killers, they began making desperate attempts to summon Savathûn's Hive to their aid. Eventually their former High Priest Nokris would pledge his allegiance with the Witch-Queen herself.
After Oryx excommunicated his son Nokris for making a heretical bargain with Xol, Nokris took his followers, the Grasp of Nokris, and set out to conquer a new world in the name of his patron Worm God. Nokris chose to invade Mars, and arrived at some point shortly before or during the Collapse.
In defense, the Warmind Rasputin executed the SIBERIAN ENTROPY protocol, flash-freezing the entire Hive army along with Nokris and Xol. They would remain entombed within the ice of Hellas Basin for centuries, until the pulse of Light emitted by the Traveler at the conclusion of the Red War caused the ice caps to thaw.
