Kargen, the Technocrat is a large, high-ranking Psion Flayer and the Red Legion's foremost expert on Vex technology. He and his team pillaged countless Vex sites and later attempt to hack the Insight Terminus using a possible OXA Machine replica on Nessus. He is the main boss of the Aforementioned Strike.


Kargen is armed with a Projection Rifle for ranged combat, allowing him to rapidly bombard a Guardian's position on the battlefield. He will quickly maneuver around the arena with thrusters on his back as well as run to different locations to confuse the player, and also packs a high total health to boot. Kargen's unique trait is that he can produce multiple Psionic Blasts at once, spreading numerous Void ruptures and fire hazards across the area, and when faced at point blank, he will psionically smash the ground to create a shockwave that will knock Guardians off of the combat space entirely, sending them falling to their death. When at 50% health, he will reach upward and suspend himself in a Vex cage. To release him, one must stand on the Sync Plates for long enough; when he drops back down, he will produce even more psionic blasts than before. Kargen's sustained firepower, deadly psionic attacks, erratic movements, and unusual resilience make him a troublesome foe to overcome.



  • Kargen is seen wearing a mantle that drapes on his back, possibly indicating his rank as a Psion Flayer.
  • Kargen is the only Psion Strike boss in Destiny 2, and the fourth overall after the Psion Flayers seen in the Dust Palace Strike.
  • Kargen was the biggest Psion by far until Inotam was released.
