"He likes it. Too much."
— Cayde-6[1]

Reksis Vahn, the Hangman[2] is a Scorn Baron. A depraved executioner abandoned at birth, Vahn has a specific hatred of Servitors and their role in Fallen culture. Based in the Quitter's Well, the Hangman siphons Ether from Servitors and uses it to feed his fellow Barons. Prior to his capture alongside those comrades, Vahn was responsible for exterminating the last Servitors of the House of Wolves, dooming the House to extinction. Imprisoned deep within the Prison of Elders, Reksis Vahn was freed by Uldren Sov, and was present at the murder of Cayde-6 at Sov's hand.[1] He appears to be a Ravager class Scorn pirate.


Reksis Vahn is an aggressive melee combatant. He prefers to charge into battle directly with his large Flame Cauldron, swinging it around and dishing out high amounts of damage with each strike. When at farther ranges, he will smash his censer on the ground to create a large, wide line of flames which quickly burn away at a Guardian's shield and health, and if at point-blank range, he will slam his censer on the floor, creating a shockwave knocks Guardians around and deals massive damage if it hits directly. Vents will also emit flames throughout the arena for area denial. Occasionally, Reksis Vahn will teleport away from the arena and summon lesser Scorn units for reinforcements, but soon afterward, he will reappear and continue his assault. The small circular arena makes ranged combat difficult. Therefore, one should turn to their grenades, Supers, or high-impact weapons as a reliable method of damaging Reksis Vahn safely.


  • When Reksis Vahn slams his censer on the ground to create his line of fire, it will become stuck for a few seconds as he tries to pull it out of the floor, granting the player a few seconds to do damage directly or take out Scorn minions overwhelming them. Unlike Fikrul's weakness, which is debatably a bug, this was likely intentional.
  • One of Reksis Vahn's titles, "The Godslayer," is also possessed by the Guardian, except in a different context.
    • The Guardian possesses the title mainly for slaying Hive deities, whereas Reksis Vahn has earned the title by killing Servitors, which are viewed as gods in Fallen religion.
  • The Hangman is the third largest of the Barons, towering near the height of a Hive Ogre.
  • Although he is a Ravager, he still has a head.
