Memory of Sai Mota

From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki

"Sai Mota was a Hunter who walked with us on our doomed journey for vengeance against Crota. Most of us did not make it, however. She... fell to the Wizard Omnigul, laughing as she died."
— Eris [1]

The Memory of Sai Mota is a quest introduced during Shadowkeep following the completion of its main storyline. It is part of the Luna's Calling questline involving Eris Morn and the memories of her fireteam haunting her as Nightmares.


"My knives are eager for another dance."
— Sai Mota

In the first step, the player is required to:

  • Retrieve a Firewall Data Fragment, which is retrieved by completing the Lunar Spelunky Weekly Bounty from Eris Morn on the Moon.
  • Head to K1 Revelation lost sector and proceed to the end of the area where the boss spawns. Take a right up through a broken lunar entrance and reach the locked system core vault door. Unlock the door with your Firewall Data Fragment and retrieve Sai Mota's Broken Necklace from the centre console.

In the second step, they need to:

  • Defeat 20 Nightmares on the Moon using Arc abilities to search for scraps of Sai Mota's broken necklace.

Once completed, the player is tasked with using the portal in Sanctuary to meet up with Eris Morn. Following a short cutscene involving Eris Morn and her nightmares, hand over the necklace, allowing Eris Morn to make peace with Sai Mota's nightmare and ridding the Nightmare from her.

Note: After completion of this quest, the Exotic quest for Deathbringer will be unlocked called Faculties of the Skull, which leads into Symphony of Death.



The player walks through the Hive portal on Sanctuary and meets up with Eris standing in front of the Pyramid being surrounded by her Nightmares.

  • Eris Morn: "Please! Leave me alone..."

The Nightmares retreat from Eris Morn.

  • Eris Morn: "No wait!"
  • Eris Morn: "Don't leave. I don't... I need you."

Eris falls to her knees and begs the Nightmares to comeback. Sai Mota's Nightmare moves forward, towards Eris and begins to taunt her.

The player hands over Sai Mota's repaired necklace to Eris.

  • Ghost: "Eris, we found something that we believe should be yours."

Eris stands up as she receives Sai's necklace in her hand.

  • Eris Morn: "It's Sai's necklace. I'd recognise her craftmanship anywhere."
  • Eris Morn: "She's the one that taught me how to use a knife to carve beads."

Eris Morn embraces Sai's necklace and the Nightmare of Sai Mota disappears.

  • Eris Morn: "Perhaps I will take up carving again..."

Eris Morn turns around.

  • Eris Morn: "Thank you."

Pressing the Interact button on Eris Morn.

  • Eris Morn: "When she joined the fireteam, Sai asked for only one thing: to be avenged."
  • Eris Morn: "I wasn't able to do that for her..."
  • Eris Morn: "But you did. When you slew Omnigul, Sai... the real Sai, not this phantom... was at peace."

Pressing the Interact button on Eris Morn again.

  • Eris Morn: "Sai spoke little - except when giving toasts. Then none could silence her."
