Rite of Proving
From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
The Rite of Proving is a trial-by-combat gladiatorial system intrinsic to the older Cabal Culture and Tradition and heavily favored by the Praetorate. It is used to determine leadership and able commanders along with to sort rivalries. The Tradition became corrupted under Emperor Calus' rule and faded in usage and tradition under Dominus Ghaul's. Under Empress Caiatl's reign, the Empress has employed the re-use of the tradition to recruit willing Cabal into her War Council. The Tradition directly ties into Cabal Bell of Conquests.
