The Nine





"Welcome, Guardian... to the place where everything dies. And begins anew."
—The Emissary

The Emissary is an enigmatic Agent of the Nine, who judges the Trials of the Nine and rewards valiant Guardians at The Third Spire. She possesses mysterious abilities, and is the Crucible commentator for the Trials rather than Lord Shaxx.

The Emissary is an Awoken, and has pupiless glowing eyes and floats in mid-air. Her lips also don't move when she speaks. She claims to be one of many agents.


The Emissary was once a friend and confidant of Queen Mara Sov of the Awoken before being transformed by the Nine.[1]

The Emissary was sent to meet with Mara in her throne world during the third cycle of the Taken curse placed on the Dreaming City. She brought Mara vital information on behalf of the Nine along with an offer. The Guardian known as the Young Wolf arrived as their meeting came to a close, with Mara agreeing to the deal and requesting that the Emissary have an unknown asset move into place somewhere beyond the grave of the first fleet. The Emissary then departed from the Queen's throne world to convey the agreement back to the Nine.[1]
