"#1315 has harnessed his "banks" to what appears to be an engine of pure potential. He no longer needs to pilfer the Ascendant Plane of Primevals, the oldest Taken in residence. He can create Primeval-likes from the energy of "the haul" and sheer force of will. As to the apparent presence of #2015, it is a falsehood. My handlers in the Praxic Order surmise simply: the shape of Oryx was the scariest Hive he could think of. He's tenacious, but he has a small mind."
— Praxic Warlock Aunor Mahal

The Likeness of Oryx is a Taken entity encountered in Tier III of the Reckoning. As its name suggests, it resembles a Taken version of Oryx, the Taken King (more specifically an Echo of Oryx) and exhibits similar attack and movement patterns.


  • The Likeness of Oryx is one of several Taken enemies that does not appear to have originated as a non-Taken; other examples include the Likeness of Nokris and Shadow Thralls.
