"Lush with giant twisted trees, deep caverns, waterfalls, and silver swamps, the origin of this planetoid remains unknown. What is clear is that the Vex have nearly transformed the entire planetoid into a Machine World, above and below the surface. For those Guardians willing to brave the dangers and explore the myriad of mysteries, treasures beyond the imagination await."
—Website description

7066 Nessus is a Centaur minor planet with an irregular orbit. At perihelion, Nessus is closer to the Sun than Uranus; at aphelion, Nessus moves into the Kuiper belt. Approximately 126 years before the SIVA Crisis, Nessus re-entered the Solar System after an unexpected delay.[2] At some point, the Vex fully converted Nessus into a Machine World.


After the Red Legion invaded Earth, they began to mobilize across Nessus in a massive effort to start a drilling operation. Afterward, they sent in mobile bases to decorate the planet, as they began to occupy Nessus, engaging in a war with the local Vex inhabitants.

The ruins of Nessus are dominated by Vex and Red Legion architecture. Massive Cabal drills are scattered across the surface of the planet.

The Fallen also reside on the planet.


Lost Sectors



  • The Vex who reside on the planet bear slight technological and physical differences from those across the rest of the Solar System, which may indicate that Variks' comments from House of Wolves have come true.[3]

    "In the last few years the Fallen have lost so much—and everything is escalating around them. There are gods and powers converging on this system, old machines waking up, old bones whispering flatteries. They need a new way."
