Ixel, the Far-Reaching was a Psion of the Imperial Cabal who aspired to join Empress Caiatl's War Council.


Ixel was an ambitious, high-ranking Psion stationed on Nessus under an "uncreative" Valus. Believing her potential was being stifled by her Valus's refusal to investigate Vex technology that could augment her natural powers, Ixel slew him and deserted, taking the best soldiers from their unit with her.[1]

Despite being a traitor to the Cabal and considering Empress Caiatl a fool, Ixel's ambition drove her to pursue a seat on Caiatl's War Council by harnessing a Vex prediction engine to predict any and every way to kill Commander Zavala and cripple the Last City's command.[1] Caiatl did not reject Ixel's claim, and her desire to kill the Vanguard reached the ears of Caiatl's champion Ignovun.[2][3] However, thanks to the Crow, her plans were revealed to Saladin Forge. In response, the Iron Lord promptly deployed the Guardians in a grudge match against Ixel and her squad, wiping her and her aspirants out in a decisive final battle within Nessus's core.[4]

Even though Ixel fell to the Lightbearers in the Rite of Proving, her findings in the prediction engine found their way to the rebel, Yirix, and her Psion conclave. They used them to further their plans of vengeance against the Guardians in the name of Amtec, attempting to act on the predictions of Zavala's final death.


Ixel fights like many of her Psion predecessors, tending to stay up close to make the most out of her melee attack and Cabal Slug Launcher. Only focus Ixel once the herd has been thinned by a substantial amount. The boss also possesses an ability of the late Red Legion Flayer: Ozletc, the Sky Piercer. That being the power to bombard the surrounding area with pillars of Arc energy that will deal serious damage if you are hit by one. These are telegraphed by her levitating off the ground when charging the attack, as well as blue circles on the ground that designate where the blasts are going to land, so it is important to keep an eye out for any of these signs. However, it is best to keep Ixel in the back of your mind and focus on her reinforcements, as they will quickly overwhelm your Fireteam if you do not keep their numbers low. Upon reaching each third of her health bar, the Psion will create an immunity shield around herself and summon special enemies, distinguished by their glowing, white aura, who power her defenses. They must be killed in order to disable her shield and continue the fight. Once the Ixel has been taken care of, the activity will come to an end.



  • Ixel's appearance is remarkably similar to the concept art model of Inotam, Oblivion's Triune, where she had bulkier armor and a fabric cape.
