From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
Soulfire Exarchs are a unique class of Hive Wizards encountered at various different ritual sites within the Shattered Realm: Ruins of Wrath mission. They were deployed by Xivu Arath, God of War to conduct a ritual which would open up a breachway between their master's throne world and the realm. They are overseen by the Soulfire Hierarch.
