Biography[edit]

"Sure. A weird Hive ritual. Nothing we haven't seen before, right?"
—Taeko-3, during the briefing before the strike into the New Pacific Arcology[1]

After the reclamation of the Last City, Taeko was part of a fireteam with two other Guardians, a Hunter and another Warlock. Along with six other Guardians stationed on Titan, they received orders to go into the New Pacific Arcology to investigate and stop a Hive ritual. Before the mission, Taeko and her team were briefed by Deputy Commander Sloane. Taeko believed that their mission would be easy, as they had stopped plenty of Hives rituals before. Sloane reprimanded her for this attitude, noting that the Hive on Titan were unlike those they had faced previously. Taeko merely smirked and told Sloane that she worried to much, and claimed that when working with her team they were unstoppable. Sloane approached Taeko and asked what she would do if things went wrong and her team did not have her back. She smirked again and claimed the answer was easy: embrace the Praxic Fire.[1]

Taeko's cockiness was soon proven to be foolhardy, as the Guardian fireteams quickly became trapped by the Hive within the warrens under the archeology. They were hunted down, killed, and converted into crystals full of Void Light for use in a summoning ritual. Taeko watched as her best friend was killed and desecrated by the Hive. She was soon the lone survivor, and soon discovered a huge Shrieker known as Savathûn's Song was responsible for the horrors the Hive were committing.[2]

Taeko struggled to survive, and her Ghost and Light were beginning to fade when she made contact with a rescue team sent by Commander Zavala and Sloane. She informed them of what she knew about the Hive's activities, and tried to dissuade them from coming any further into the Hive's territory so they would not be killed as well. The rescue team then informed her that by destroying the Void crystals, the Hive creating them became vulnerable. Noting that there was no crystal in the chamber with Savathûn's Song, Taeko decided to sacrifice her life and allow the Hive to turn her into one of the crystals. Taeko's sacrifice was not in vain, as the strike team was able to destroy the monstrous Shrieker and prevent whatever ritual the Hive were preparing for from occurring.[2]
