As she sorted through the flotsam, it was as if the metal spoke. It would tell her what it wished to be, whispering its destiny.[1]

Ithyks, the Scrapworker was a Fallen Marauder and a master in the art of scrapworking. She was hired by Eramis, the Shipstealer, to hunt for the relics of Nezarec on behalf of the Witness. She was encountered in the Pirate Hideout: The Scrapworker activity.


Ithyks was a Pirate Lord of the Old Crews of Eliksni legend. After the Whirlwind, her crew salvaged the wreckage of ships that fled Riis in search of the Traveler unprepared. As she gathered scrap from the flotsams, Ithyks began to find her calling: scrapworking. She used the salvage from other vessels to upgrade and bolster her own, growing stronger in the process. At an unknown point in time, she even faced Mithrax, the Forsaken. After the return of Eramis, the Shipstealer, Ithyks would be among the many Pirate Lords to answer her call to search for the artifacts of Nezarec. After finding and claiming one of the reliquaries, it began to whisper to the Scrapworker. It spoke of her own destiny, and that of existence, and she was scared of what it told her.[1]

Ithyks was unable to deliver the artifact to the Shipstealer, however, as her hideout was raided by the Guardian, who was also searching for the relics. Although she attempted to stop them, sending her crew to block off and defend the asteroid, she would eventually fall to the Lightbearer in battle, and her reliquary was taken.[2]


Ithyks appears in the Pirate Hideout: The Scrapworker activity as the final boss. She is found within the asteroid 8319 Antiphanes in the Themis Cluster. Once you have made your way through the hide—evading the traps and bypassing its security—you will reach a wide, circular arena, where the artifact is located. Upon approaching it, the Pirate Lord and her forces will emerge to defend the relic. Ithyks is backed up by reinforcements consisting solely of Shank variants; most of which are regular and Exploder Shanks. She wields a Shrapnel Launcher into battle, which shoots bursts of solar rounds. Being a Marauder, she has the ability to rapidly scurry around the area to evade gunfire or to close distance between herself and the player, for more close-quarters attacks. She can also use stealth, but will only do so briefly at the beginning of each of phase.

After losing a third of her health, she will teleport behind the energy barrier on the left side of the arena, before deploying more reinforcements. The player will required to destroy the Code Guard Heavy Shank that spawns and collect its Bypass Code, which is need to lower the barrier and continue the battle. Once the Scrapworker is vulnerable again, she will call upon more of her forces to assist her. This will have to be repeated after the boss's health is down to its last third, and she teleports behind the barrier on the right side. After the second shield has been bypassed, you will be free to finish off the Pirate Lord. You may collect the reliquary to finish the mission once Ithyks is dead.
