Master Ives was the Cryptarch of the Vestian Outpost. In Destiny, he shares the same reputation level as Master Rahool, so he doesn't need to be leveled up independently. He will also purchase any artifacts from players, as well as any Royal Amethyst they've recovered.
After Queen Mara Sov granted the Vanguard access to the Vestian Outpost, Ives was assigned to assist Guardians there with decrypting engrams. Ives was introduced to a Guardian who had been aided by the Queen, and whom he had heard much of from Master Rahool. He informed the Guardian he was looking forward to doing business with them and hoped not to disappoint them too much.
Sometime later after the events of Forsaken, Ives was found murdered by an unknown killer. Petra Venj contacted Amanda Holliday during that year's Festival of the Lost, who brought in The Guardian to help solve the mystery. Given a lead by Holliday, the Guardian found through some of Ives' lost journal pages and a collection of sources left unidentified by Amanda that the Fallen were somehow responsible. After scouring the European Dead Zone for clues, the Guardian came across a Fallen teleporter with Ives' Cryptarch robes hanging next to it in the Whispered Falls. After being told to follow by Holliday, the Guardian was taken back to the Cosmodrome for the first time since the SIVA Crisis years ago, as it was quarantined by Zavala. The Guardian explored the Breach, fighting off waves of Fallen, and slayed the one responsible for Ives' death: Kikliss, Murderer, a Fallen captain of the House of Dusk, accompanied by the Servitor Rudriks-9. Following this, the Guardian left the Cosmodrome and returned to Holliday, where they acquired Master Ives' Last Engram, which, when decrypted, awarded the Thunderlord. However, it is also mentioned by Amanda while in the Cosmodrome that the Fallen did not seem to have any apparent motive and that this event was most likely part of something larger.
Personality and Traits
Reef Cryptarchs believe that their job is to encrypt matter and secrets, rather than discover them. They are often at odds with the City's Cryptarchy on matters of philosophy. Ives, in particular, has a rivalry with Rahool.
