The Pahanin Errata are a collection of quotes attributed to the infamous Hunter Pahanin, creator of Super Good Advice and friend of the legendary Titan Kabr[1], taken from the flavor texts of various weapons and armor as well as numerous Grimoire entries, which are collectively referred to by the aforementioned name.

Excerpts[edit]

  • "The black gloves are tough, menacing, and - I swear - make you unbeatable at Go."[2]
  • "I can't shake hands with Warlocks. I just get so nervous they're going to vaporize me."[3]
  • "So I ask Wei Ning: What about the Darkness itself? What then? And she says: I'll punch it too."[4]
  • "People think that the law of the jungle is just selfish brutality. People haven't read the poem." [5]
  • "Tell a Titan only a madman would go. Tell a Warlock it's too complex."[6]
  • "Your missions: protect the City. Look better than Warlocks. But don't look like you're trying."[7]
  • "If human extinction seems imminent, try to relax. You're just giving cephalopods a shot."[8]
  • "Yes, my love for cephalopods is well documented."[9]
  • "His name was Kabr. He wasn’t my friend but I knew and respected him as a Guardian and a good man. He fought the Vex alone. This destroyed him. In the time before he vanished he said things that I think should be remembered. These are some of them: “In the Vault time frays and a needle moves through it. The needle is the will of Atheon. I do not know the name of the shape that comes after the needle. No one can open the Vault alone. I opened the Vault. There was no one with me but I was not alone. You will meet the Templar in a place that is a time before or after stars. The stars will move around you and mark you and sing to you. They will decide if you are real. I drank of them. It tasted like the sea.” That is all I can remember."[1]

Trivia[edit]

  • The word "errata" means a correction of errors found within a published text.
  • According to Seth Dickinson (known on Reddit as /u/GeneralBattuta), co-writer of Destiny's Grimoire (and writer of all of the Grimoire entries and item flavor text concerning Pahanin), the proper term for the collection of quotes attributed to Pahanin is "The Pahanin Errata". He explained that, due to the limited amount of space in an item's flavor text, extraneous words would often be chopped, leading to "The Pahanin Errata" becoming "Pahanin Errata".[10]
