Area type:



The Macrocosm is a location within Essence, the command ship of The Witness. It is a planetarium that contains several models of the celestial bodies of the Sol System. The Witness seemingly coordinated its operations from here. After it went inside the Traveler, the area was left in the care of Zo'aurc, Explicator of Planets.


After the defeat of Savathûn, the Witch Queen, The Witness would declare its advance on the system from within this room.[1]

After the master of the Black Fleet entered the Traveler with many of its Pyramids, the Macrocosm was left in the care of the Shadow Legion, specifically of commander Zo'aurc, who continued to index the planets. According to Nezarec, Final God of Pain, his accomplishments were meager compared to what the invading Raid Fireteam accomplished in their short time in the Pyramid. The Guardians would confront the Explicator and his troops, and defeat him by using the planets' alignments to weaken him.[2]
