The Sigil of the Sunsinger
There are flames that even the Darkness cannot extinguish.

Sunsinger is a Solar-based Warlock subclass that is available in Destiny when you reach level 15.


"As a Sunsinger, you are a child of the sun, gifted with the ability to restore and take life."
Ikora Rey

Ikora Rey said that Solar Light is despised by Hive Wizards as it cuts their ritual barriers to shreds, blisters their skin and burns their eyes.[1] Zavala once espoused the beauty of Sunsinger light, until he saw the full extent of its power.[2] Ulan-Tan said to the Speaker that the Light of the Sunsinger is proof that Light is everywhere.[3] When understood by Toland, the Shattered, he left solar footprints on the darkside of the Moon, stood on the spires of Mercury and chilled by the Solar Winds, stretched out his solar wings and flown.[4]


"And my vanquisher will read that book, seeking the weapon, and they will come to understand me, where I have been and where I was going."

These are dark times. Humanity stands on the brink of extinction. We will carry fire into that darkness - a beacon to guide the way, and a pyre to consume our great enemy.

The Light saved us from death and forged us into weapons. We seek to understand it, to embrace it, to consume and be consumed by it. We hope to become radiant.

Our fellow Guardians need our power. Our civilization needs our strength.[5]
