From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
Nirwen was a Warlock and a member of the Iron Wolves. He was present, and presumably fell during the Battle of Site-6, a harrowing conflict in the Plaguelands that saw the end of the Iron Wolves, and the near-extinction of the Iron Lords. At some point prior to Nirwen's demise, the notorious Warlock Osiris studied under the tutelage of both he and Felwinter. In spite of his death, Lord Saladin Forge commemorates his life through the Iron Banner. Rewarding Guardians with two different weapons and a Warlock Bond ornament in the the fallen's namesake, one is a Pulse Rifle with an exceptional reload speed and stability rating, and the other is a burst-fire sidearm commissioned by SUROS.
