Hiraks, the Mindbender
From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
Hiraks, the Mindbender, is a Hive obsessed Baron of the Scorn, and an Ascendant Eliksni. A year after the events of the Red War, Uldren Sov freed him along with seven other Scorn Barons, and worked together to orchestrate a massive breakout from the Prison of Elders. After the murder of Cayde-6 at Uldren's hands, Hiraks fled the scene alongside the prince and his fellow barons to the Tangled Shore. He has the ability to summon Hive combatants and wields a Knight's Boomer in battle. He reigns over a throne world, which is identified only as "Ascendant Plane".
As a Dreg of the House of Exile, Hiraks fell into the Hellmouth on the Moon. He emerged obsessed with the Hive and incomprehensible in his speech (possibly having adopted the Hive's language) and began to study them. Years later, Hiraks found the means to become Ascendant and form his own throne world within the Ascendant realm. He also gained a reputation for his ability to unravel his enemies' minds along with his command over the Hive.
As the mastermind of the Great Crow Heist, Hiraks trapped and converted Prince Uldren's Crows with his powers, using them to help engineer mistrust between the Reef and Earth. He was also responsible for experiments on Asteroid 128 Nemesis, where his actions caused the asteroid to shift between our dimension and the Ascendant realm.
Before Cayde-6 and his Six imprisoned him in the Prison of Elders with the other Barons, Hiraks took In Anânh, Brood Queen as his consort and a Knight as his Familiar. He apparently attempted to infuse In Anânh's Hive with Ether, but only succeeded in poisoning them.
Hiraks mainly fights The Guardian with his Scorn Boomer, which has a faster cyclic rate and greater range than a typical Hive Boomer. The explosive Arc bolts discharged from the weapon can quickly blast through a Guardian's shield and health. He will stomp the ground at close range, knocking players back a significant distance and dealing massive damage to them in an instant. In addition, he is backed by Hive units instead of Scorn, and will use Void Ether-Shields to completely negate all damage dealt to him as well as his reinforcements. Occasionally, he will run through a Hive portal and appear on the other side to both summon more Hive backup and flank the player. The main weakness of Hiraks is his slow movement, making it possible to outmaneuver him in combat.
