From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
Seen exclusive to Imperial Cabal members, Optus' (Opti) are Psions with the citizenship of Freeborn that have been given the added benefit of a military ranking. Although how high or low the rank of Optus is currently remains unknown, Optus' are above their rank-and-file compatriots and may be very similar to a Bracus. Many Opti take the form of named Commanders, although there also exists an unnamed Optus Psion variant.
