The Ancient Past[edit]

First Conflict of Light and Darkness[edit]

Main article: Lore:Unveiling
Year Date Event Information
2 primordial entities, known respectively as the Gardener and the Winnower, are assigned specific roles, with the Gardener being described as the one who seeds life whilst the Winnower is described as the one who takes life. In the evening, the Gardener and the Winnower would play the Flower game in the garden before time.
The Winnower describes the rules of the Flower game as the following: a living flower with less than 2 living neighbors is starved and dies; a living flower with 2 or 3 living neighbors can survive into the next generation; a living flower with more than 3 living neighbors is overcrowded and dies; and a dead flower with only 3 living neighbors comes back to life. While the Winnower enjoys this inevitable victory, the Gardener becomes tired of it.
The Gardener decides to add both it and the Winnower themselves to the rules of the Flower game to delay the Final Shape, a philosophy in which nothing that causes pain and suffering should exist. The Winnower discovers the First Knife, initiating the first conflict between the paracausal forces of Light and Darkness. Light is the paracausal force affecting the physical world while Darkness is the paracausal force affecting the mental world. The conflict begins by bringing down the legendary Tree of Silver Wings. As a result, the universe begins recording time.

The Creation of the Witness[edit]

Year Date Event Information
The Traveler manifests in realspace The Gardener emerges on the home planet of a humanoid species. The inhabitants exhume the sphere which bestows upon them gifts of knowledge, beginning their Golden Age.
Eons later, in the absence of guidance from their benefactor, their society began to crave meaning and sought to find something that would bring order and purpose to an otherwise open-ended existence, eventually viewing their Gardener as a force of chaos capable of bringing creation or ruin.
Discovery of the Veil Now capable of interstellar travel as a result of gifts of the light, the species becomes aware of an object of power antipodal to the Light, one linked to the mind and consciousness rather than the physical world. They called this object: the Veil. In studying the Darkness, they discovered that it held the means to guide the universe into a perfected, eternal form, a "Final Shape" that would last to the end of time and beyond. In this, they found purpose. To achieve their goal, the species schemed to bring the Traveler and the Veil together, which would, according to their research, grant them the ability to alter reality itself. They set off in search of their benefactor's counterpart, eventually finding it and returning it to their homeworld. In response, the Traveler flees to avoid this outcome.
The Birth of the Witness Unwilling to abandon their quest, the civilization used the Veil to bind their consciousnesses together, merging themselves into a single, unfathomably powerful entity: the Witness through a ritualistic mass sacrifice, possibly against the will of many members.[1] Empowered by the Darkness and commanding a fleet of pyramidal ships, the Witness left its world behind and began a crusade to find the Traveler and unite it with the Veil, and in doing so bring about the Final Shape

Rise of the Worm Gods[edit]

Year Date Event Information
The species known as the Proto-Worms, lived a peaceful existence on the planet of Fundament.

Rise of Rhulk, the First Disciple[edit]

Main article: Lore:Shattered Suns
Year Date Event Information
The Traveler arrives at Lubrae, a planet orbited by a Sapphiric Sun and an Umbral Sun. It uplifts the Lubraeans living on the planet, enabling them access to technology capable of driving out dangerous flora attacking the people under the Umbral Sun through the Sapphiric Converter. After the Traveler departs from Lubrae, a division occurs with the Lubraeans between the nomadic Wanderers and The Regime settling under the Sapphiric Converter. Rhulk is born under the Wanderers to his father Rhelik, his sister Kheeta, and his mother Vrhuna. He witnesses his father fight the Stalkers sent by the Regime and shares in his hatred of them.
After witnessing the death of his clan-uncle and Fhent at the hands of the Regime, Rhulk decides to take action. He kills a group of Stalkers and is exiled as a result of his violent behavior's incompatibility with the peaceful culture of the Wanderers. He begins his quest to find his father. He gets captured by the Regime in the process. He learns that his father had defected to the Regime, angering him. He renames the Glaive he had dedicated to the mission of finding his father from Rheliksward to Rheliksbane. He later learns his father has defected back to the Wanderers, angering him further and vowing to kill him.
He reunites with his clan and family, but they push into the Abyss, a chasm that divides the Wildlands the Wanderers inhabit and the city the Regime inhabit. At the bottom of the Abyss, Rhulk makes contact with a mysterious being that would soon be known to him as "his Witness". At the behest of the Witness, Rhulk uses his Glaive to crack open the planet and use the Upended to destroy the Sapphiric Sun and his home planet. He becomes the last Lubraean and the first Disciple of the Witness. He renames his Glaive to Lubrae's Ruin. Rhulk goes on to appoint new Disciples, most notably Nezarec, who was worshipped as a god by the Psions. [2]
The Witness convinces Rhulk to coax the Ahslid into joining its cause. After initial attempts to coerce their kind failed, Rhulk begins grooming the next generation into a fearmongering race fueled by paranoia and terror; one of his most prominent being Uun whom he doted on. His attempt to manipulate the Ahslid backfires as their peaceful way of life turns into warfare, scrubbing their whole planet of life. Uun, being the only survivor of his race, turns away from Rhulk's teachings and is killed by the Lubraean; thus the Ahslid became extinct.
Rhulk arrives on the gas giant of Fundament and seeks out the Worms, in the process grievously injuring the Leviathan. The Worm Mother Xita is taken by the Disciple as the worms are forced into servitude of the Witness and the Worm Mother to produce implantable worm larvae.[3] He allows its larvae to drift into the oceans of Fundament.

Corruption of the Worm Gods[edit]

Year Date Event Information
The Worm Gods would become seduced by the idea of to kill each other to gain power through the Sword Logic. Six of them, Xita and her children Akka, Eir, Ur, Xol and Yul evolve into the entities known as the Worm Gods. [4]
The Proto-Worm Ahsa would escape the onslaught, and travel across space to pursue the Traveler. She would eventually learn of the Witness's origins.
Many of the Proto-Worms were killed in the slaughter. The Leviathan, who was a servant of the Traveler, would imprison the Worm Gods deep beneath the oceans of Fundament, where they would remain for billions of years. The Worm Gods would begin to call out other species to Fundament to free them.

Ascension of the Hive[edit]

Main article: Books of Sorrow
Year Date Event Information
Hundreds of different species migrate to Fundament due to the Worm Gods call. They become stranded there, living on the shards of their broken worlds which become floating continents. One such species was the proto-Hive known as the Krill, whose homeworld collided with Fundament and shattered. The Krill survive and build a new civilization for themselves on the floating shards of their former homeworld, gradually forgetting their original history.[5]

A species of bony six-armed cephalopods named the Ammonites benefit from the Traveler's patronage and build a sophisticated starfaring civilization spanning all of Fundament's fifty-two moons, before eventually coming into contact with the distant Ecumene.[6][7]

Upon discovering that the Krill would be claimed by the Traveler, the Witness would seek to prevent this and claim them for itself. A dead Worm larvae which would become known as the Worm Familiar, would wash up on the shores of the Osmium Court. It would begin to whisper to the Osmium King.
At eight years of age, the Krill Osmium King of the Osmium Court on Fundament sires his final brood of offspring, which includes his three daughters Xi Ro, Sathona, and Aurash who are tutored by sterile mother Taox. At ten years of age, the Osmium King begins to succumb to senility and madness; becoming consumed with ancient texts and obsessing over the movements of Fundament's moons, and the possibility of a catastrophic alignment called the Syzygy.[8][9][10] Unbeknownst to him, the Witness spoke to him through the Worm familiar.
Fearing for the Osmium Court's future and believing the royal daughters were unsuited to rule, Taox secretly contacts the rival continent's Helium Drinkers of the Helium Court, inviting them to invade, assassinate the royal family, and install her as a subservient regent of the Osmium Court in exchange for engines capable of moving their continent.[9] The Helium Drinkers agree, resulting in the Osmium Court's fall and the death of the Osmium King, but the royal daughters escape and vow to take revenge.[8]
Three years after losing their kingdom, upon the advice of their father's worm, Xi Ro, Sathona, and Aurash use a salvaged high-tech ship to dive into Fundament's depths, hoping to discover a secret to stave off the Syzygy, which Aurash had come to believe was imminent.[11][12] They encounter the Leviathan, but they reject his pleas to turn back and continue their pursuit.[13][14] Deep within the ocean of Fundament, the sisters encounter the Worm Gods. The Worms offer the sisters immortality and power in exchange for accepting their larvae as parasites and carrying out the will of the Darkness. The sisters agree to the pact and are transformed into the first Hive: Xi Ro takes the Knight Morph becoming Xivu Arath, God of War; Sathona takes the Mother Morph becoming Savathûn, the Witch Queen; and finally, Aurash takes the King Morph, transforming into a Male and becoming Auryx, the King of the Hive.[15]
Xivu Arath, Savathûn, and Auryx return to the surface and share the Worm parasites among the other Krill, becoming the Hive and creating an army that quickly overwhelms Fundament's other species.[16] Taox flees, at first to other continents[17][18] and then to the Ammonite capital moon where she is granted asylum.[6] Originally, Auryx was willing to negotiate with the Ammonites, however Savathûn following the orders of the Worm Gods kills him as punishment.[19] Instead of dying, Auryx's soul passes to his own Ascendant Realm or throne world, a pocket dimension in the Ascendant Plane where their soul resides after death and the only place where they can truly be killed.[20] Auryx returns, now having purged any sympathy and goodwill that remained in himself, and the Hive continue their war against the Ammonites. Xivu Arath sends her brood to slay the Leviathan and bring the Ammonites to extinction. This leads to a final battle, where the Ammonite champion Chroma-Admiral Rafriit is slain. The Leviathan attempts to flee to the Ammonites' capital moon.[21] With the Leviathan alone, Xivu Arath sends her Knight Ir Uulxal to slay the priest of the Sky, he succeeds tasting its flesh and making it rain upon the Ammonites. Ir Uulxal would be commended, being given the new name of the Leviathan-Eater and the title, Bane of the Ammonites.[22] The Hive continue their assault, bringing the Ammonites to extinction, and forcing the Traveler to abandon Fundament.[23] The Hive colonize and transform Fundament's moons into mobile war-moons[24], and embark on their purge of the universe in the name of the Darkness.[25] During this time the Worms begin instructing Auryx in the nature of the Sword-Logic.[24][26][27][28][29]
The Hive eradicate hundreds of intelligent species, including the Qugu, over a span of twenty thousand years.[30] During this time they grow and expand their. kingdoms, refining and deepening their knowledge of the Sword Logic.[31] Auryx makes war upon Savathûn out of both revenge and love, with Xivu Arath fighting them together.[32]
Approximately twenty-four thousand years after the fall of the Ammonites[7], the Hive reached the frontier of the Ecumene and invaded seventeen worlds for over a century[7]. The Dakaua, a client species of the Ecumene, discover Taox in cryo-stasis aboard an ancient ship.[7] Taox shares her knowledge of the Hive's leaders and motivations with the Dakaua, and the Ecumene unleashes its most powerful weapons against the Hive, who immediately suffer setbacks.[7]
The Hive suffer many defeats against the Ecumene. Auryx summons Savathûn and Xivu Arath to his Throne World, realizing that their Worms' hunger was growing faster than their ability to feed it. Seeking the power necessary to allow the Hive to continue their crusade, Auryx slays his sisters[33] and then his Patron Worm God, Akka[34], creating the Tablets of Ruin, Auryx’s harnesses the ability to Take. Auryx becomes Oryx, the Taken King and uses his newfound power to create the Taken, Darkness-corrupted entities bent to his will. During his war, Oryx revives Xivu Arath through an act of war, and Savathûn through an act of cunning. For one thousand, one hundred and forty years the resurgent Hive triumvirate annihilated the species of the Ecumene so utterly that no trace of them remains.[35][36] Taox escapes yet again, however, and the Hive resume their pursuit, ravaging the galaxy along the way.
Creation of the Tithing System To grow quicker and more effectively in power, Oryx creates the tithing system. In this system, all Hive take some tribute to feed their Worm and tithe the rest to their superiors. Thralls tithe to Acolytes, Acolytes tithe to Knights or Wizards, and Knights and Wizards tithe to Ascendant Hive, until all this tribute reaches the Hive Gods.[37]
Golden Amputation Ten thousand years later, after destroying the Taishibethi,[38] Oryx communes with the Witness, which tells him the purpose of the Sword Logic is to bring about the Final Shape.[39][40] He decides to produce children, and sires two sons and twin daughters: Crota, Nokris, Ir Anûk, and Ir Halak.[41][42][43]
Unfavored and looked down upon by his father, Nokris sought to impress Oryx by communing with the Worm Gods.[44] He would succeed but all of them would reject him, except for Xol, the weakest of his kin who was fearing an attack from Yul. Xol and Nokris would strike a bargain, Nokris would trade Xol his heart in exchange for learning Necromancy, the power to revive others from the dead and considered by Oryx and his brood to be heresy to the Sword Logic. [45] Later Oryx would learn about Nokris's act of heresy and was outraged. Nokris and his brood were exiled with Xol fleeing alongside them, and all mentions of the disfavoured son were removed from The World's Grave and Books of Sorrow.[46]
While Oryx is absent from his court to observe the Darkness destroy an ancient fortress world, Crota, after being tricked by his aunt Savathûn, inadvertently opens a portal to a place containing Vex while experimenting within the Ascendant Realm.[47] The Vex, unable to comprehend the physics of Oryx's throne world, manifest Quria, Blade Transform[48], who begins experimenting with the Hive, learning to worship the Darkness, and continue to plague Oryx's realm for a hundred years.[48] The Worm God Eir finally calls Oryx home to deal with the problem after the Vex come close to conquering the High War.[48] Oryx Takes many of the Vex, dividing them against one another, before finally expelling the cybernetic machines from his realm.[49] Oryx comes to consider the Vex a worthy rival, and resolves to follow the Darkness and document the destruction it wreaks in a "grave of worlds"[49], so that he may learn from it and use this knowledge to succeed in his crusade against the universe.[49] With his Ascendant Realm having been compromised by the Vex incursion, Oryx builds the Dreadnaught from Akka's corpse and houses his realm within it.[49][50] This takes place before Earth's formation (at least 4.54 billion years ago)[51]
The Hive destroy the Harmony, another species that had built a peaceful and advanced civilization with the aid of the Traveler[52], and topple the fabled Gift Mast over a period of a hundred and fifty years.[53] During this conflict Oryx defeats Quria, Blade Transform and the remaining Vex who were attacking him, and gives the Taken Hydra to Savathûn.[50][54][55] Quria's last act is to share what it has learned about Oryx's origins as Aurash with the rest of the Vex collective mind.[56] Afterwards, Oryx's sisters part ways with him; Savathûn takes her war-moons into the black hole the Harmony's worlds orbited, while Xivu Arath ventures into unknown space.[53] Oryx continues on his journeys in the footsteps of the Darkness, continuing the Hive's crusade and still seeking the elusive Taox.[57]

However, the beast would meet its end to Acrius, claiming the sun for his people and becoming the first Cabal Emperor.
At some point, the Cabal forge a vast interstellar Empire and incorporate the telekinetic Psions as a client race, who previously worshipped an unknown calamity that eventually strikes the Cabal and forces the Empire to flee.[60][61]
Over time, the Cabal Throne loses most of its power and the military aristocracy, the Praetorate gains control of most of the Empire's power. They popularize the Rite of Proving, a tradition for Cabal to prove their right through battle.
Calus, Prince Designate, leads a revolution and overthrows the Praetorate, becoming the Emperor of the Cabal Empire. He shifts the Empire's roots from militarism to art and philosophy and makes Torobatl the Cabal's home planet. He later has a daughter named Caiatl. The Consul, who previously had ties with the Praetorate would find the young orphan Ghaul, taking him in and training him as a weapon to overthrow Calus.
Ghaul would become a Gladiator in the coliseum, becoming favoured by the Emperor. Calus promotes Ghaul to Primus of the Red Legion, and eventually his right hand.
Ghaul, with the aid of the Consul, Caiatl and others leads a military coup against Calus, who is exiled to the Leviathan. Ghaul becomes the new leader of the Cabal Empire.[62]
As Calus is too popular among the Cabal populace to execute without risking rebellion, the conspirators exile Calus and his surviving supporters to the Leviathan and lock its course to a destination far outside of the Cabal empire.
After wallowing in despair for an unknown amount of time after his exile, the Leviathan comes across an expanse of nothingness, which shorts out the navigational systems. Calus then looks into the void and gains a renewed sense of purpose. [63] With control of the Leviathan back in his hands, Calus begins exploring the galaxy and planning to retake the empire.

The Colonization of Venus The Hesperonauts first descend into Venus's boiling mists and place terraforming engines in caldaras, beginning the planet's transformation into a habitable world.[85][86][87] They were later remembered by the Last City and the Guardians through a set of armor forged in their honor.[88]
The Discovery of the Vex During the initial exploration of Venus, ancient Vex ruins are discovered. Early Vex research outposts like Campus 9 attract Earth's brightest minds, leading to a colonization rush on the planet. The researchers found the Ishtar Collective and the Ishtar Academy.[89]
Birth of the Warmind The Clovis Bray Corporation take the code of the "R", an AI designed by M. Mihaylova and upgrade it into the sentient interplanetary defense system Rasputin.

Creation of the Exos During Clovis's attempts to create the Exos, early exominds would fall victim to what is known as the "loop/billboard/crash" cycle, characterized by cognitive and motor stereotypy (abnormal, repetitive behaviors), athetosis (slow, involuntary writhing movements of the limbs and extremities), and gradual loss of sapience. tip his claims the life of Clovis Bray II.[98] Clovis steals a Vex from the Ishtar Collective and uses it to construct a gateway to the Vex colonized star system, the Forge Star.[99] He discovers that exposing Vex radiolaria to "Clarity" solves the "loop/billboard/crash" problem. With this problem fixed, the Exos are successfully created. [100]
Despite fixing the "loop/billboard/crash" problem, Exominds would begin to fall victim to Dissociative Exomind Rejection (DER), when Exos do not feel comfortable in their new bodies.[101] To solve this problem, Clovis comes up with two solutions. The first is a "reboot", which does not wipe the Exos memories, but instead wipes the mind's memory post-transfer, however, the procedure will likely have to be repeated multiple times. The second solution is to introduce familiar human organic conceits into their body, such as the instinct to eat or reproduce.

Battle of Saturn The Taken War begins with the Battle of Saturn, as the Awoken space fleet engages the Dreadnaught and a small fleet of Hive warships escorted by thousands of Tombships; Uldren Sov leads his fighter wings to scatter the Hive fleet whilst from behind the Queen and her Techeun Coven summon the Harbingers,[332] as part of a predetermined plan.[333] The Harbingers destroy much of Oryx's fleet, ripping through enemy vessels with ease, but leave no marks upon the Dreadnaught itself. Oryx ends the battle by firing his ship's main cannon, destroying both his and the Queen's fleets in a single Pyrrhic stroke and forcing him to forestall his advance.[332] The Queen and major parts of Reef leadership, including Paladin Abra Zire, and Techeun Shuro Chi, are considered missing in action.[334]

Rise of Iron[edit]

Main article: SIVA Crisis
Year Date Event Information
The Transmission Incident Field reports are made from Guardians whose armor have become infested with "tech mites", which manifest as swarms of colorful specks that swirl around their heads. Unable to contain the mites' spread among the Guardians, the Owl Sector and Vanguard instead implemented a quarantine on the Last City to prevent non-Guardians' exposure.
Bypass Authority Berriole travels to the Dust Palace to learn the origin of the tech mites. Following a set of tracks to a lab, she finds various locked storage cabinets had been cut or blasted open. Further investigation yields the mites were linked to a Clovis Bray project overseen by a Dr. Zarin Shirazi who worked under Dr. Willa Bray and that the tech mites were actually a nanomachine therapy to improve subjects' intelligence and strength for the Golden Age's colonization effort. After sealing Shirazi's lab, however, Berriole becomes aware that the tracks which led to the lab appeared to have been made by Fallen, implying that a group of Fallen (possibly the Splicers) were responsible for the incident.[378] Eventually, a third of all Guardians become affected by at least one variety of tech mite, prompting the Vanguard to further tighten the City's quarantine.
The Owl Sector's Liaison to the Vanguard, Shun Li, accidentally becomes exposed to a sample of tech mites and loses consciousness soon after, forcing his fellow operative Ramos to take on the duties of Acting Liaison. Fortunately, the countermeasure to the tech mites is discovered among Shirazi's records, and the combined efforts of the Owl Sector's research corps, the Hidden, and the Techeuns succeed in replicating it. Shun is revived, and the cure is administered to the Guardians, much to their dismay. With the crisis ended, the Owl Sector is returned to standby status.[379]
The SIVA Crisis begins when the Fallen House of Devils begins digging into old Golden Age research labs all over the system, eventually returning to the Cosmodrome while shifting massive amounts of resources to a previously dark region of Old Russia. Concerned the SIVA Plague may have been discovered by the House of Devils and unleashed upon the Cosmodrome, Lord Saladin personally leads the counterattack to contain the threat.[380]
20 September King of the Mountain A Fallen force captures ]Felwinter Peak. Unable to get there in time, Lord Saladin orders the Guardian to secure the observatory at the top before it is too late. After defending the mountaintop from several waves of Fallen forces, the Guardian reaches the Iron Temple before defeating Sepiks Perfected in the courtyard, keeping the Fallen from the temple long enough for Saladin to arrive with reinforcements, but Sepiks escapes.[380]

In the end, revealing how SIVA ultimately corrupted many of the Iron Lords by turning their weapons and armor against them, forcing Jolder to seal herself and all of the Iron Lords except for Saladin within the Bunker rather than let SIVA escape. Saladin then realizes the Fallen have not yet mastered SIVA, and sends the Guardian to meet with Tyra, a Cryptarch well versed in the origins of SIVA, and also one who might know the source of the Fallen's discoveries.[381]
Download Complete The Guardian then travels to an old Clovis Bray research lab following a hunch from Timur, who believes the answer to the Fallen's weakness may lie with the ancient SIVA prototypes. After clearing the facility of the Cabal, the Guardian locates an old archive that reveals information on several types of nanotech designed for differing purposes. The Guardian is then attacked by a Cabal force which they promptly eliminate before returning to the Iron Temple.[382]
The Iron Tomb Communing with the Guardian, Lord Saladin informs them that Shiro-4 has analyzed the Clovis Bray data and found a way to temporarily disrupt the Splicers' control over it. The Guardian is then tasked to descend into the SIVA replication complex to cut its ability to replicate itself. On the way, they reverse the power cells in the SIVA reactor, temporarily cutting off the Splicer's SIVA supply. Infiltrating The Archon's Keep, the Guardian descends deeper into the facility and after confronting the Remnant of Felwinter, destroys the SIVA Replicator via a self-destruct mechanism.[383]

The Guardian arrives at the Giant's Husk, expecting to encounter hostilities, but finds the Hive engaged in all-out war. After the Guardian recovers a coded relay from a defeated Devil Splicer, Shiro deduces that the Hive may be attempting to reclaim something stolen and tasks the Guardian with exploring the Overpass for further clues. Working off of the pointers obtained from their exploration, the Guardian takes off for the Archon's keep in search of Hive or Fallen activity. At the keep, the Guardian discovers the Fallen Splicers are experimenting with the Hive, prompting them to seek out the Splicer's High Priest to end his madness.[386]
The Wretched Eye Kovik, Splicer Priest invades a Hive nest located within Bunker Triglav. After a team of Guardians destroy a network of SIVA Nodes, which are augmenting the Silos' old defense protocols and keeping the facility sealed tight, they descend into the Hive Nest and kill Kovik, as well as a captive Hive Ogre the Fallen Priest had infused with SIVA.[387]
Sepiks Perfected A fireteam of Guardians tracks down Sepiks Perfected again and kills both it and Dresiks, Splicer Baron in the Devils' Lair. A trio of augmented Captains—the Shock Captain; the Splicer Scorch Captain; and the Null Captain—are methodically eliminated.[388]
23 September Wrath of the Machine Guardians infiltrate Foundry 113 and defeat the Splicers' surviving duumvirate of Aksis and his second-in-command Vosik inside their Perfection Complex. With Aksis and his followers gone, the Devil Splicers are neutralized.[389]

4 days after the Last City's fall After trekking for many miles in the City Outskirts, the Guardian realizes they are being led in a certain direction by a hawk. Finding a campsite littered with the corpses of killed Guardians, the Guardian scavenges a submachine gun and fights off a pack of War Beasts.
1 week after the Last City's fall The Guardian reaches Twilight Gap, still following the hawk, and kills another War Beast pack led by a Legionary. After missing a jump and falling into a canyon, the Guardian is awoken by Suraya Hawthorne, who has helped many civilian City refugees find and repair old jumpships.

Bad Neighbors A conflict between the Hive and Fallen erupted on Titan and to prevent the destruction of the old structures of The Rig from a Fallen bomb, the Guardian is tasked to intervene and intercept the Fallen. After defeating the fallen, who were creating the bomb, The Guardian's Ghost then decided that the bomb could still be useful against the Hive nests at Tidal Anchor. Ghost used the Fallen's bomb components to craft his own bomb, which the player then used to destroy a Hive "Resonator" device, luring out the Hive in Tidal Anchor and killing all their forces.

As the Guardian assembles the coven of Techeuns needed to expel Savathûn's Worm from her body one by one, they make various discoveries including the evolution of the Scorn]], the restoration of Uldren Sov's memories to Crow, and the manipulations of Savathûn over the year she posed as Osiris. Once the final Techeun is rescued from the Ascendant plane, Mara Sov forbids any access to Savathûn until the cosmic alignment is ready for the Techeuns to perform the ritual.
12 October Mystery of the Headless Ones Glint leaves Crow behind aboard Caiatl's flagship to investigate the myths and mysteries of the Headless Ones with the Guardian's assistance in time for the Festival of the Lost.
14 December A Brigher Dawning The Eliksni of House Light and the Cabal in service of Caiatl celebrate the Dawning for the first time alongside the denizens of the Last City.
15 February The Exorcism The Techeuns begin the ritual to expel Savathûn's worm, but the ritual is under assault from the forces of Xivu Arath led by Kelgorath, Risen from Bones. The Guardian and Saint-14 are deployed to the ritual site to defend the Techeuns as they complete the ritual. The ritual is complete with the return of Osiris and the extraction of Savathûn's Worm. However, Savathûn deceives Mara by transporting herself elsewhere.
Between 15 February and 22 February Savathûn Reborn Savathûn transports herself close to the Traveler, wounded from the exorcism ritual Mara's Techeuns performed on her. She dies near the Traveler, and Immaru resurrects her, now reborn with the Traveler's Light. She returns to her Throne World to cast a curse upon Rhulk, trapping him within the Sunken Pyramid.
Grasp of Avarice A fireteam led by the Guardian arrive in the Cosmodrome to search for a loot cave in the Skywatch, previously discovered by another fireteam. They encounter and defeat Hive led by Phry'zhia, the Insatiable, and later defeat a Fallen crew led by Captain Avarokk, the Covetous. They discover along the way that the fireteam that discovered the treasure turned against each other in hopes of taking the loot for themselves.

The Witch Queen/Season of the Risen[edit]

Year Date Event Information
22 February Reappearance of Mars The Guardian investigates Mars' reappearance with temporal distortions under the orders of Ikora, but are attacked by the Cabal under Caiatl's banner. Later, Savathûn's ship, The Lure, lands above the Martian Cradle. They infiltrate a Cabal bunker and use the cannon to launch themselves onto the Lure. They follow mysterious traces of Void Light upon landing on the Lure, only to discover that they are soon encountering the Hive imbued with the power of the Traveler's Light and Lucent Moths. Before they begin to intercept Savathûn, they recover another artifact linked to the Black Fleet. They intercept Savathûn; however, she escapes, and a Knight takes her place. The Knight in question wields Void Light and possesses a Ghost of its own, a trait shared within the Lucent Hive. The Guardian crushes the Lightbearing Knight's Ghost with its hands to permanently defeat the Knight. The portal opens into Savathûn's Throne World. They follow her there, but she evicts them after they defeat one of her projections in the Queen's Bailey. They return to Mars near The Enclave, the site of the Relic that the Guardian uses the artifact recovered from the Lure to craft their first Glaive: The Enigma
The Investigation The Guardian teams up with Hidden operatives to learn more about how the Lucent Hive were able to retrieve the Light. The Guardian returns to Savathûn's Throne World to gather clues to Savathûn's plans through Deepsight obtained from the artifact they recovered from the Lure earlier. While exploring the Throne World, they are contacted by the turncoat Hive Ghost named Fynch, who requests an audience with them outside the Florescent Canal. They face a Lightbearing Wizard with Arc Light and the Scorn invading the Throne World. They finally meet Fynch, the turncoat Hive Ghost who refuses to revive his Knight, though the Ghost is suspicious of him and has Ikora spy on Fynch in case he lies to both of them. Fynch then gives the Guardian a lead on the first clue: Sagira's Ghost Shell.
The Ghosts The Guardian gets a lead on Sagira's Ghost Shell found inside the Temple of the Wrathful, a temple dedicated to Xivu Arath. Fynch reveals to the Ghost and Ikora that the Scorn are led by Rhulk, a Disciple of the Witness, and are invading the Throne World as revenge for Savathûn placing a Light curse on Rhulk using the Wellspring. They face Brutiks, Lightbane, who is guarding Sagira's Ghost Shell, and defeat him. They recover the Ghost Shell and it plays a memory of Savathûn revealing the identity of the Witness.
The Communion Eris advises the Guardian to return to the Europan Pyramid to enhance their Deepsight abilities so they can uncover the memory of Savathûn further. They enter the Europan Pyramid after clearing out the Cabal led by Valus Dralgur, whose band of soldiers were exiled by Caiatl for their attempts to retrieve Darkness-related artifacts to win the war against the Hive under Xivu Arath. They learn from Eris the devastation the Cabal faced during the Fall of Torobatl after defeating the Imperial Deserter. They defeat the Valus attempting to destroy the statue the Guardian needs to commune with to enhance their Deepsight ability and commune with it.
The Mirror With their Deepsight abilities now enhanced, The Guardian returns to Savathûn's Throne World to gain access to the Altar of Reflection through a passage within the Witch's Echo, destroying Pyramid Spikes and Scorn resistance along the way. The Guardian presents Sagira's Ghost Shell, replaying the memory of Savathûn revealing the identity of the Witness, but also revealing her plan to impersonate Osiris and learn the secrets of the Light. Fynch then briefs the Guardian on the next clue needed to uncover Savathûn's plan.
The Lightblade Fynch reveals that the next clue needed to uncover Savathûn's plan is the Tablet of Ruin located inside the Temple of the Navigator, a temple dedicated to Oryx. To reach the temple, the Guardian would enter a Hive boat to cross the canals, then navigate the dark swamp. They reach the temple housing the Tablet of Ruin guarded by Alak-Hul, the Lightblade, Oryx's adversary reborn in the Light. They defeat him and take the Tablet of Ruin to the Altar of Reflection, where Savathûn reveals her plan to move the Traveler to her Throne World. They inform Ikora of Savathûn's plan to move the Traveler and get a lead on the next clue from Fynch.
The Cunning The next clue needed to uncover Savathûn's plan for the Traveler is located in the Temple of the Cunning, a temple dedicated to Savathûn's younger self Sathona. The Guardian is tasked with recovering a calcified Worm familiar that Sathona and the Osmium King]] heard the warning of the God-Wave forming on Fundament. They retrieve the Worm familiar from the statue of Sathona, but on their escape from the temple, they are forced to fight the illusion of an Ahamkara. They escape the temple and attempt to bring the familiar to the Altar of Reflection, only for them to lose access to the Altar. Upon returning to the Enclave, they overhear a dialogue between Ikora, Eris, and Zavala. Eris receives a tip from Mara on the final clue.
The Last Chance Mara informs Eris of the final clue needed to uncover Savathûn's plan who then relays it to the Guardian: a shard of the crystalline prison Mara used to trap Savathûn, located inside the Apothecary, the site of Savathûn's experiments with the Light. They defeat a Wizard lieutenant loyal to Savathûn, Savathûn's Right Hand, guarding the shard. They bring the shard to the Altar of Reflection, where it reveals the final moments of Savathûn following the exorcism and her rebirth in the Traveler's Light by Immaru. Savathûn tricks the Guardian into recovering the memories for her and attacks them using the Light. The Guardian relays the memory to the Vanguard, where the revelation of the Traveler resurrecting Savathûn shocks Zavala. Ikora and the Guardian leave the Last City, determined to stop a ritual that will bind the Traveler to Savathûn's Throne World. Before they do so, Ikora uses the Relic to unlock the memories of the Worm familiar, revealing that the Hive were tricked into serving the Darkness by the Witness. Ikora relays the memory recorded in the Worm familiar to the Guardian.
The Ritual Running out of time to stop Savathûn's plan from coming to fruition, the Guardian crosses the Court of Thorns and climbs up to the Sanctum of the Brood Queen, where they confront Savathûn. They are forced to defeat a fireteam of Lightbearing Hive, composed of a Lightbearing Knight with Void Light, a Lightbearing Wizard with Arc Light, and a Lightbearing Acolyte with Solar Light while engaging her. They defeat her, but Immaru resurrects her. The Guardian is forced to fight her with a different strategy. The Ghost proposes that the Guardian show her the same memory that Ikora relayed to them of the Witness tricking the Hive into service for the Darkness. The revelation angers her, and for the first time, Savathûn's web of lies is unraveled, allowing the Guardian to gain the upper hand over her. They finally defeat her, but Immaru disappears along with the Traveler from her Throne World. The Guardian tells the Ghost that now they must prepare for the Witness's arrival to Sol and do whatever they can to prevent a repeat of the Collapse.
Birthplace of the Vile Mara Sov summons the Guardian to the Enclave and briefs them of a plan to weaponize Savathûn's Worm. They infiltrate the Dark City to recover an incubator and defend her as she binds the Worm to a grenade launcher, now named Parasite, through a Hive ritual. Before leaving the Throne World, she instructs them to pay attention to the words of Savathûn's Worm in the future.
22 February-15 March The Coalition forms The coalition between the Imperial Cabal and the Vanguard forms when Zavala asks for Caiatl's help in stopping the Lucent Hive on Earth, which she agrees to, and supplies the Guardian with a Synaptic Spear. Caiatl and Saladin form a plan to capture Lucent Hive lieutenants by using the Psions to connect the Guardians to the Lucent Hive lieutenant's Light via the Mindscape. They learn that an invasion force is being gathered on Luna and the Guardian stops them with assistance from Cabal allies deployed by Caiatl. While the Guardian stops the invasion, Crow puts the coalition in danger after he accidentally kills the Psion running the Psisorium, infuriating Caiatl. Saladin repays Crow's life debt by becoming a member of Caiatl's War Council as Bracus Forge, and eventually Valus Forge.
5 March Duel with the First Disciple Before the Guardian enters the Sunken Pyramid, the Witness is seen monologuing in private towards the Traveler, expressing its belief that it is failing the various races of Sol, beginning the war between the forces of Sol and the forces of the Witness. Its first Disciple, Rhulk, invites the Guardian into his Pyramid after the Light curse placed on him by Savathûn weakens through her defeat. They shut down a superweapon located inside, The Upended, and defeat him despite his Dark powers. They regularly return to the Pyramid to clear out the Scorn attempting to gain technology from inside. While exploring the Sunken Pyramid during these clear-outs, the Guardian learns of Rhulk's origins including his home system of Lubrae, his role in the attempted recruitment of the Ahslid, the servitude of the Worm Gods to the Darkness, and his adversarial relationship with Savathûn.
- Vox Obscura Caiatl asks the Guardian to return to Mars to shut down Psionic propaganda broadcasts, which are convincing her Psions to defect to the forces of the Witness, created by Yirix and spread by Qabix. This propaganda consisted of Psion history before their enslavement by the Cabal, the prophesied resurrection of Eramis, the predicted fall of the Last City, the Traveler becoming tainted with Darkness, and the impending return of the Leviathan. It became apparent that Calus is the being rallying the Psion forces to make these broadcasts.
3 May The 3rd Guardian Games The Guardian Games return to the Tower once again, albeit with some changes, but retain the same idea of class competition. The Warlock class wins the 3rd Guardian Games.

The War against the Witness[edit]

Season of the Haunted[edit]

Year Date Event Information
24 May The Nightmares return Calus, now the second known Disciple of the Witness, parks his derelict Leviathan in Luna's orbit and makes a successful communion with the Lunar Pyramid, unleashing the Nightmares intended to be a security force for the Lunar Pyramid. Eris asks the Guardian to investigate the derelict Leviathan. During it, the Nightmare of Zavala's lover, Safiyah, taunts the Guardian. They are forced to flee from the ship after discovering a robotic effigy of Calus sending the Loyalist and Scorn forces to their location. They participate in a seance with Zavala, Eris, and Crow aboard the H.E.L.M., where Eris uses the Nightmare Harvester to bind the Nightmares to the Crown of Sorrow. She and the Guardian would begin working together to assist Zavala, Crow, and Caiatl in severing the Nightmares haunting them.
24 May-31 May Severing the Nightmare of Uldren Sov Eris suggests that the Guardian begin the severance ritual with Crow being the first participant, but before they can do so, they must bind a Nightmare found in the Castellum area of the derelict Leviathan to the Nightmare Harvester. They do so and make their way to the first severance ritual site with Crow. His Nightmare summons the Nightmare of the Fanatic, where the Guardian uses the Scythe to defeat the minions and slay the Nightmare. Crow's first attempt fails. Eris and the Guardian would use a different strategy to sever the Nightmare through acceptance with Crow. The second attempt is a success, turning the Nightmare into a Memory. Crow discovers his purpose and begins his task to fill in the Hunter Vanguard role left vacant since the death of Cayde-6. Eris congratulates the Guardian on their success.
27 May Calus's Darkest Secrets The Guardian enters the Mindscape of Calus in search of his deepest regrets. It is revealed that Calus's greatest regrets are his daughter Caiatl and the birth of Gahlran as evidenced by the Nightmares haunting him. They collect broken Bells of Conquest, where they play the memories of Calus throughout certain events such as his rise to Emperor, the Midnight Coup, his meeting with the Black Fleet, the events that transpired aboard the Glykon, and his desire to join death, giving the Guardian more clues of the Witness' plan. After defeating the Nightmare of Caiatl, Princess-Imperial, the Guardian leaves the Mindscape and relays the information to Eris.
7 June-14 June Severing the Nightmare of Safiyah Zavala is up next to participate in the severance ritual with the Guardian and Eris, but Eris warns them that Calus's connection to the Lunar Pyramid has strengthened in response to the Nightmare of Uldren Sov becoming a Memory. After binding the Nightmare in the Castellum to the Nightmare Harvester, the Guardian infiltrates a different section of the Leviathan's underbelly with Zavala. He is ambushed by both the Scorn and the remnants of House Devils. The Nightmare of Kethiks was summoned by the Nightmare of Safiyah to introduce the Guardian to her killer, Kethiks, the Yet-Proven. Zavala surrenders to his grief, failing the first time. Eris recounts the story of Zavala's life before he became a Vanguard Commander, which includes his son Hakim, to the Guardian before they try the severance ritual again. He succeeds and the Memory of Safiyah gives Zavala advice to let go of his grief. Eris discovers that one more Nightmare needs to be severed before they can strike at Calus.
21 June-28 June Severing the Nightmare of Dominus Ghaul Caiatl is up last to participate in the severance ritual with the Guardian, but without the warding, she is vulnerable to the Nightmares in the derelict Leviathan. She sends a message to the Vanguard declaring her challenge against the Nightmare. Zavala and Eris order the Guardian to find her, fighting alongside the Imperial Cabal. The Nightmare of Dominus Ghaul reveals himself to the Guardian. Caiatl fails in the severance ritual due to her failure to lead the Cabal empire effectively. Eris learns the Loyalists and the Hive under Xivu Arath are working together and has the Guardian investigate a possible lead on Calus. They return to the Enduring Abyss and learn that Calus is attempting to merge his consciousness with the Lunar Pyramid. After Eris performs a ritual that gives Caiatl the warding needed to protect her from the Nightmares, she and the Guardian try the severance ritual again. While making their way to the ritual, Calus begins his plan to merge his consciousness to the Lunar Pyramid with the aid of the Witness. Caiatl can complete the severance ritual by turning her Nightmare into the Memory of Dominus Ghaul, finally breaking Calus's control of the Nightmares. Eris tells the Guardian to continue Nightmare containment while she uncovers more of Calus's plans.
5 July The Final Severance Ritual Eris informs the Guardian that although they were too late in stopping Calus from merging his consciousness into the Lunar Pyramid, it is not yet complete and that the final severance ritual would require the combined efforts of her, Crow, Zavala, the Guardian, and Caiatl. After gathering the necessary reagents needed to conduct the final severance ritual, they finally strike on Calus, but he anticipates their arrival and has his forces ambush Crow, Zavala, and Caiatl. The Guardian infiltrates the throne room of the derelict Leviathan on Zavala's order to find and assist Caiatl before the Lunar Pyramid blocks the comms. They enter the Chantry of the Darkest Hour within the Lunar Pyramid by using the resonant portal in the room full of Calus's robotic effigies and find Caiatl there. With Caiatl's assistance, they lure out Calus, now the harbinger of the next Collapse, with the Nightmare Harvester. Working together, Caiatl and the Guardian defeat waves of Nightmares brought forth by Calus, breaking his connection to the pyramid. His consciousness is defeated and the Memories of Uldren Sov, Safiyah, and Dominus Ghaul fade as Zavala and Caiatl comfort each other. Eris tells the Guardian that Calus's influence is pushed back and that it is only the beginning of the end as the Witness will arrive soon, but she also sends a voice message to the Drifter inviting him to uncover more secrets of the Lunar Pyramid with her.
19 July Bonfire Bash As part of the 5th anniversary of the Solstice of Heroes, now simplified to Solstice, and the Cabal in Caiatl's service celebrating it for the first time alongside the Eliksni of House Light and the denizens of the Last City, Amanda Holliday introduces a new tradition where Guardians light up a paracausal bonfire at the center of the EAZ and stop the Taken from extinguishing the bonfire. To light the bonfire, they need to defeat Ignition Carriers and throw the igniters near the bonfire. They fully embrace the bonfire after defeating a Taken Heat-Drinker and enjoy the new tradition with overwhelming support from Zavala, Ikora, Caiatl, Mithrax, etc.
16 August Calus's Message Calus sends a message at the War Table of the H.E.L.M. telling the Guardian that they will soon meet again in Darkness by declaring his servitude to the Witness. The Guardian speaks with Zavala regarding the message, which was projected across the Last City as well. This prompts Zavala to begin his preparation for Calus's next move.

Season of Plunder[edit]

Year Date Event Information
23 August Eramis' Freedom The Witness breaks Eramis free from her Stasis prison and instructs her to rally the pirate crews to her command to recover relics imbued with Darkness energy. Meanwhile, the Drifter tasks the Guardian to recover an asset captured by the Eliksni of House Salvation on Europa. The asset is revealed to be the Spider, who managed to escape the Tangled Shore through his personal Ketch. Spider instructs the Guardian to rescue his Ketch with assistance from his crew, who the Guardian eventually recruits: Halsiks the Sniper, SCUR-V the Servitor, and the Skiffblades. They learn that Eramis is on the loose again. The Drifter brings Spider to the Eliksni Quarter of the Last City, where his associates ally with the Eliksni of House Light due to the history Spider had with Mithrax when they served under House Wolves. He sets up shop in the Ether Tank, a bar located in the center of the Eliksni Quarter. There, the Guardian meets with the Drifter, Mithrax, and Eido to formulate a plan to prevent Eramis from successfully rallying the old crews of Ketchkillers, Skiffblades, and pirates. The Drifter hands the Guardian a Skeleton Key and promotes them to be a pirate captain on their personal Ketch gifted to them by the Spider. They assemble the crew to travel to the Themis Cluster to board an enemy Ketch, defeat the captain, and plunder their loot. Then, they use a Star Chart and the Captain's Atlas to go on an Expedition in search of clues to a pirate hideout within the Themis Cluster. They discover the first pirate hideout guarded by Cabal defectors under Val'aug, the Brute's leadership. They defeat her and recover a relic imbued with Darkness energy. They present it to Eido through a table adjacent to the Star Chart for further research and insight.
30 August-11 October Recovering the Relics Mithrax, Spider, Eido, and Drifter assist the Guardian in locating more relics after completing an Expedition. They start by infiltrating the pirate hideout led by Iriks, the Sharpshooter on Eramis's behalf, then raid another hideout ruled by a pair of Gladiators named Tagh'al and Thagh'urn. After returning enough relics, Eido learns that the relics they recovered contain body parts of a Disciple of the Witness once in charge of the Lunar Pyramid before the Eliksni raided it and split the parts into various relics. With this knowledge in hand, the Guardian recovers more relics by first stopping a Lucent Hive raid on the pirate hideout led by Ei Arat, Trespasser, who recently killed another pirate lord in charge named Vrisk, the Coward. Then, they deal with another ruthless pirate lord who intimidates his fellow Eliksni: Arask, the Bully. Eido, Mithrax, and the Guardian learn from Eramis that the body parts belonged to Nezarec and the relics containing them were really the tombs of Nezarec. The Guardian continues the hunt by infiltrating the hideout of an Eliksni capable of commanding Cabal war beasts named Alaaks, the Beast Tamer, then enters a hideout of a scrapworking facility with Ithyks, the Scrapworker as its warden, and finally pursue Eido as she recovers the last relic alone by stopping another Lucent Hive raid led by Hiak'ar, Hoardseeker. Eido and the Guardian witness a duel between Mithrax and Eramis with Eido pleading both of them to stop. They do, and Eramis flees on her Ketch. Upon the placement of the last relic, Eido tells them that it will take time to determine how the relics can used for good and warns them of a mysterious curse.
18 October-8 November New Information on the Headless Ones Eido begins her research into the Headless Ones and concludes that the Headless Ones were created during the Golden Age through a holiday known as the Halls Between and reveals that the traditions of the Halls Between survived into the Festival of the Lost through their shared usage of masks.
29 November The Phoenix Rises Again After the Guardian helps out the Eliksni of House Light in making improvements to the Eliksni Quarter, Mithrax discovers a way to harness the relics of Nezarec to be used for good. He uses a conversion ritual to purify the body parts and reduce them to a concoction. He then delivers it to Saint-14 so the comatose Osiris can be its intended recipient. Osiris finally wakes after drinking the concoction and shares his experience of being possessed by the Witch Queen, such as the vision of Neptune, with Saint-14 before they embrace each other.

Season of the Seraph[edit]

Year Date Event Information
6 December Ana's Restored Hope With the Witness fast approaching and all efforts to revive Rasputin bearing no fruit, the newly-awakened Osiris suggests to Ana Bray that they make contact with the AI of Clovis Bray I since he may have the knowledge needed to rebuild Rasputin. Ana is hesitant but agrees to Osiris's proposal, so they send the Guardian to Europa, into Bray Exoscience. After bypassing a deadly security system, Ana is shocked when she learns that Xivu Arath has made a foothold on Europa by using her Cryptoliths to turn the Eliksni of House Salvation to fight for her, thereby turning them into Wrathborn. The Guardian encounters more of Xivu Arath's forces including a Deathtongue Chorister that uses Xivu Arath's Battlesong to enhance her Wrathborn soldiers and suppress the Guardian's abilities through a totem. The AI of Clovis Bray I requests the Guardian's assistance in driving out the remaining forces of Xivu Arath invading the Creation wing of Bray Exoscience, defeating Techwizard Malykuh, Salvation's Warden. They reactivate the security protocols and witness a conversation between Clovis I, his granddaughter, and Osiris. Ana uploads Clovis I into an experimental Exo frame intended for Rasputin in the H.E.L.M., and he tasks the Guardian with recovering a submind of Rasputin: Malahayati. Before they set off to recover the first submind, Mara Sov informs them of Xivu Arath's plan to weaponize Rasputin's Warsat network to be used against the Last City. The coordinates to the submind lay within the Seraph bunker on Luna, so they head there. They learn that the Scorn are attempting to retrieve the submind, so the Guardian stops its leader: Once-Phyris, the Exhumed Tether, a lieutenant of Eramis reanimated as a Scorn. They are then tasked with retrieving an AI framework on Europa, fighting through Wrathborn forces and defeating the Warwatcher, Eye of Xivu Arath. After retrieving data from the submind Malahayati and the AI framework, they travel to a Seraph facility located outside the Last City. They bypass the security systems, clear out the Hive inside and defeat a lieutenant of Xivu Arath: Sumok, Ravager of Torobatl. They inform both Clovis I and Ana of their success and both begin their work to locate the next submind of Rasputin.
9 December Skirmish on the Spire of the Watcher The Hidden reveal to Ikora that a specific facility has reactivated for the first time following the Collapse within a temporal anomaly on Mars. Ikora dispatches the Guardian to the facility on Osiris's behalf. The facility is under attack by the Vex of the Sol Divisive, the collective pledging their allegiance to the Witness. The Guardian uses Arc circuits to open doors and lifts leading to the Ares Spire. They ascend to the top of the Ares Spire and defeat Akelous, the Siren's Current, an Axis Mind used by the Witness to collect power at the facility. After the defeat of Akelous, Osiris reveals to the Guardian that the facility's reactor is experiencing a meltdown and tasks them with stopping the Vex from denying the secrets held inside. They encounter Persys, Primordial Ruin, another Axis Mind used by the Witness and also the first Wyvern of the Sol Divisive encountered by Guardians. Defeating Persys, the meltdown is prevented, and the Vanguard begin collecting important data from the facility. Initial findings are reported to Ikora.
13 December Recovery of Charlemagne The Bray family argue over Clovis I's trustworthiness of the knowledge needed to rebuild Rasputin before Ana and Elsie Bray take it outside the H.E.L.M.. Clovis I apologizes to the Guardian for witnessing their argument and informs them that the next submind of Rasputin they must recover is Charlemagne, and the coordinates to the submind lay near the BrayTech Futurescape on Mars, so they head there next. The Hive are attempting to extract the submind, so the Guardian defeats their leader: Kelgorath, now a Darkblade serving Xivu Arath and uses the root kernel on Charlemagne as they have done on Malahayati. They return to the Seraph facility outside the Last City, defeat a pair of powerful Wizards named Ir Nithra, Scourge of the Ammonite and Ir Hanal, Scourge of the Dakaua, and upload the submind to a Seraph orbital facility above Earth. Clovis I tells the Guardian that Rasputin has changed the old launch codes and encrypted the new ones, so he begins to work to locate the next submind.
20 December Operation: Seraph's Shield Clovis I informs that although Rasputin's subminds have been reintegrated, the data needed to rebuild Rasputin is still missing, so he and Elsie instruct the Guardian to board the Seraph orbital facility and upload a virus developed from Xivu Arath's usage of the Cryptoliths to corrupt the Warsat network. They use the augments dropped by the Splicers of House Salvation to explore the orbital facility and defeat both the Hive and Eliksni attempting to stop them. They willingly surrender and then escape the Ketch belonging to House Salvation before returning to the orbital facility. They defeat a powerful Knight named Haroktha, Scourge of the Helium Drinkers before confronting Praksis, the first Scorn seen using Stasis weaponry made by House Salvation, defeating him. They upload the virus and discover the blueprints of a weapon made from a combination of Häkke and Pyramid technologies: Revision Zero. They inform Clovis I of their endeavors and the frame rewards them with the original copy of Revision Zero before Fenchurch Everis contacts them via the frame. After extracting its weapon pattern, they take Revision Zero to the Enclave on Mars and discover that it is the first weapon capable of changing its Exotic traits and catalysts through reshaping through Deepsight Resonance.
27 December Rasputin's Awakening Ana discovers a way to speed up Rasputin's recovery, but first, the Guardian needs to collect more submind data. She discovers that Felwinter was made as an independent AI by Rasputin following the Collapse and his Ghost Felspring holds the data needed. With Saladin's permission, the Guardian returns to Felwinter Peak to find the remnants of Felspring. Unfortunately, House Salvation has intercepted the communications between them and Ana, so they are tasked with defending Felwinter Peak from their forces with assistance from the Cabal in service of Caiatl. They eliminate the platoon and their leader: Rilliks, Instrument of Xivu Arath before they rekindle the flames and interact with Felspring's remains. After Ana uploads the memories of Felwinter, Rasputin is finally awoken and reveals to both Ana and the Guardian the true nature of Clovis I's plans. Rasputin was created by him to exert dominance over humanity, but Ana's intervention saved them from his hubris, with Rasputin defying him by rewriting his old protocols, locking him out. Clovis I attempted to use Rasputin's network to become a god himself. Ana confronts Clovis I about the revelation aboard the H.E.L.M. with Elsie and the Guardian in tow. He reassures them that his actions were in the best interests of humanity by doing more than the Traveler, citing the Whirlwind, the Collapse, and Savathûn's acquisition of the Light as examples of the Traveler's fallacies. Ana rejects Clovis I's lies and uploads Rasputin into the experimental Exo frame, expelling Clovis I in the process, with Rasputin using his heuristics matrix to speak to the Guardian. Ana warns the Guardian that the instance of Clovis I in the H.E.L.M had relayed to the instance of himself on Europa that "they know," before Rasputin replaced him in the Exo frame. With his diagnostics completed, Rasputin thanks the Guardian for bringing him back and offers his favor in return by doing whatever he can to defend humanity from the forces of Xivu Arath. He needs time to come up with a plan of action, so he asks the Guardian to continue gathering more submind data in the meantime.
3 January-14 February Battle of the War Gods Raaputin tasks the Guardian with recovering more submind data, but before they do, Osiris discovers that Rasputin's data caches contain information related to a location called "Nefele Stronghold", hinting of a city on Neptune: Neomuna. Upon recovering more submind data, Rasputin notes some changes in his personality and concludes that he and Xivu Arath are respectively humanity and the Hive's War Gods albeit with different motives. As they work to gather more submind data and aid Rasputin in his recovery, Mara discovers that by regaining control of the Warsat network and using it against Xivu Arath's army, they are falling into Xivu Arath's trap to facilitate her invasion of Earth. She relays this information to the leaders of the Coalition, a group of allies actively working to defend Sol from the forces of the Witness and its Disciples. She forms a plan to use Rasputin as bait to stop the ritual allowing Xivu Arath a foothold on Earth with Ana and the leaders of the Coalition nodding in agreement. Rasputin informs the Guardian that he needs time to form a plan to stop Xivu Arath's Wrathborn forces without using the Warsats and tells them to follow the Vanguard's instructions. After gathering enough submind data to complete his recovery, Rasputin tasks the Guardian with recovering classified data from a bunker in the Cosmodrome. Rasputin admits that he was ready to shoot down the Traveler during the Collapse before Ana convinced him to abort the firing sequence. After driving out the Eliksni breaching the bunker, they recover the classified data to be handed over to the Vanguard and return to Rasputin. He thanks them for the effort and discovers that he is more than a weapon by comparing the Guardian to his Seraph agents. He realizes that defending humanity was the best decision he ever made and that he and the Guardian will face the next threat together and prepare for the imminent arrival of the Witness in Sol. After weeks of combat simulations, Rasputin discovers that the only way to prevent Xivu Arath's invasion of Earth from coming to fruition would be to sacrifice himself. He informs the Guardian that Eramis has activated ABHORRENT IMPERATIVE, a protocol designed to shoot down the Traveler and prevent its departure, so they must upload him with the Pillory Engram in tow aboard the Seraph orbital station manually for his sacrifice to be successful. They defeat the combined forces of Eramis and Xivu Arath on the way there while the forces of Empress Caiatl assist the Guardian in Rasputin's plan. They confront Eramis at the hangar bay before she flees to complete the firing sequence at the command of the Witness, then goes to the orbital station bridge to defeat a powerful champion of Xivu Arath: Ir Garza, Scourge of Earth. The forces of the Coalition discover that the Traveler is leaving the Last City and Earth as a whole. Eramis attempts to complete the firing sequence, but Rasputin's sacrifice prevents it from completing; therefore, his sacrifice has not only destroyed all of the Warsats in orbit but also prevented Xivu Arath's ritual from invading Earth. The Witness tells Eramis that the Traveler has "nowhere left to run," giving out yet another clue of the Witness's plans for the Traveler as it arrives in Sol alongside the forces of Emperor Calus. The Vanguard learns that in the Traveler's absence, the forces of Coalition: the Guardians, Empress Caiatl's Cabal, Mithrax's House of Light, and the Awoken will unite and stop the threat of the Witness and its Disciples together. They then return to Ana who discovers her purpose, then the Exo Frame that once housed Rasputin before his sacrifice. He leaves a pre-recorded message confirming the existence of Neomuna and a mysterious paracausal force called "the Veil." The Guardian then begin making preparations for Neptune.

Lightfall/Season of Defiance[edit]

Year Date Event Information
28 February The Invasion of Earth begins The Witness and its forces finally arrive at Earth's orbit to confront the Traveler. The forces of the Coalition respond to defend the Traveler, but the defense fails as Amanda Holliday and the other pilots go down in the fight. The Traveler shoots out a terraforming beam on the Pyramid the Witness was inhabiting, which the Witness is unphased by, stepping out into open space to approach the Traveler. Upon communing with the Traveler, the Witness discovers the location of the Veil somewhere on Neptune and instructs its new Disciple Emperor Calus to find it. Osiris learns of the discovery and follows the Cabal fleet traveling there.
First Contact The Guardian follows Ikora's orders to pursue Osiris to Neptune's orbit. They fight the Shadow Legion: followers of Emperor Calus carrying Pyramid tech to shield their allies when killed. They are forced to use the different keycards to navigate the first Shadow Legion vessel, Vual Gaudium, and destroy its navigation computer. They fight a Tormentor for the first time, with Osiris replying that it is the result of Calus's ascension to one of the Disciples of the Witness. They finally destroy the navigation computer before they make their way to the other Shadow Legion vessel: Astaroth Rex II. The Guardian observes that Calus's flagship, Typhon Imperator, is making its way to Neptune's surface as Calus taunts them. Osiris informs of a plan to use Cabal Drop Pods to make their way to Neptune's surface. The Guardian scuttles the Cabal vessel by destroying its engines and makes their escape. Before they reach the Drop Pod launchers and rendezvous with Osiris, they confront the same Tormentor they'd seen earlier, Kavauust, Reverent of the Witness, killing it. They follow Osiris's instruction to board the Drop Pod and land on Neptune. They land in a city on Neptune: Neomuna, and meet the Cloud Striders Rohan and Nimbus. On the way to find Osiris, they discover a mysterious anomaly filled with Darkness energy. Using the anomaly, they become the first being to discover Strand, using them to defend Osiris from the Shadow Legion before eventually becoming exhausted. After defeating the last of the local forces, the Guardian and Osiris work with the Cloud Striders to repel an invasion force led by the Disciple Calus. They regroup at the Hall of Heroes and learn that Cloud Striders are warriors of Neomuna with a maximum of a 10-year lifespan, after which they succumb to their augmentations. Before beginning their work to locate the Veil, they meet Nimbus and retrieve a gift from Mara Sov. She reminds the Guardian that they are fighting a two-front war with the Shadow Legion; one front on Neptune and another front on Earth. With her message received, the Guardian leaves to find the location of the Veil.
Under Siege The Cloud Striders relay the coordinates of the Veil to the Guardian, but the way there is blocked by Cabal shielding, so they are forced to defeat Shadow Guard enemies to retrieve keycards for Ghost to remove the shield. While they defend Ghost, they defeat an onslaught of Shadow Legion and Vex stopping their effort. Ghost finally removes the shield and allows the Guardian passage to the coordinates of the Veil. On arrival, Ghost notes a suppression field engulfing the area near the complex, so the Guardian is forced to defeat one of the Shadow Legion officers with their weapons: Vul'ourn, Shadow Legion Supply Master. They witness Shadow Legion Harvesters surrounding the plaza near the site of the Veil. The Witness possesses Ghost and contacts Calus to receive progress on finding the Veil, whilst inadvertently revealing their plans to establish a link between the Radial Mast and the Veil to the Guardian. They inform Nimbus and Osiris of the plans.
Downfall The Cloud Striders and Osiris suggest the Guardian infiltrate Calus's flagship to find the Radial Mast and destroy it before it establishes a link with the Veil. Rohan warns the Guardian of Calus's forces guarding the Radial Mast before they enter the flagship. On the way, they see more Strand energy. They navigate the flagship by shooting shards to open doors, getting on grav lifts, and platforming. They reach a room containing Shadow Legion Threshers, so they destroy the hangar by depositing resonance into a totem. They then confront another Tormentor before proceeding. Finally, they reach an arena where the Radial Mast is secured, but a projection of Calus demands a test of the Guardian. They deposit the resonance on the totems and defeat some of the champions sent by Calus. They then use a recently discovered Strand font to defeat the Taken and Shadow Legion infesting the arena. They become exhausted again, and just as Calus's forces begin ambushing them, Empress Caiatl arrives to rescue them and helps them escape the flagship by following her Thresher via their Sparrow. The Empress warns them not to listen to Calus's words. Nimbus gives the Guardian their next objective.
Breakneck Nimbus tasks the Guardian with restoring power to the CloudArk, a digital space the Neomuni inhabit to provide defense and infrastructure to Neomuna. They stop the Vex siphoning power and use Strand grappling points to navigate the reactor. They finally smash the Vex Mind in charge, Calixte, System Ward Finality and reboot the reactor providing power to the CloudArk. On their escape, Nimbus reveals to the Guardian that it was a trap set by the Shadow Legion, so the Guardian is forced to evacuate the reactor quickly using Strand. Back at the Hall of Heroes, Nimbus sees Osiris using Strand as well. Osiris reveals to Nimbus the true nature of Light and Darkness. Light is the force that deals with physical transformation; Darkness is the force that deals with memory. Nimbus gives Osiris advice to flow with the river when it comes to Strand.
On The Verge Nimbus gives coordinates to the Guardian so Osiris can give them a new understanding of Strand. They interact with more Strand fonts and smash Vex along the way. Osiris encourages them to lean into using Strand rather than backing out of it and to go beyond their limits. They do so on the way and upon arriving at Maya's Retreat, they interact with a large Strand font and discover the first Aspect of their Strand subclass. They test their mastery of Strand concepts on the Inquisitor Mind, but they become exhausted before its defeat; Osiris encourages them to not give up and unleash their mastery on its defeat. Osiris congratulates the Guardian on being capable of using Strand without constraint, but has yet to figure out how to control Strand more effectively. Osiris meets the Poukas, semi-aquatic creatures capable of reflecting emotion onto its subject. Rohan and Osiris discuss the feeling of pain before they are interrupted by the commotion outside. They see the Radial Mast being transported in the direction of the Veil.
No Time Left The Guardian and Rohan begin making their way to the Radial Mast's location as Nimbus and Osiris act as support. Osiris discovers that Strand is capable of destroying suppression fields scattered throughout the city, so the Guardian destroys them with Strand. Nimbus assists the Guardian by using Neomuni tech to replicate Drake Tanks used by the Vanguard after clearing out the LZ first. They do so and use the Drake Tank to bypass Shadow Legion Interceptors, Goliath Tanks, and Threshers blocking the way. They are forced to destroy more suppression fields and defeat an Imprint of Nezarec before they can rendezvous with Rohan. They meet him near an Ishtar Collective lab where the Radial Mast is located. They defend him as he finds a weak spot in the Radial Mast and defeats another Shadow Legion officer, Val Bho'kaurl. They become exhausted from using Strand before they can destroy the Radial Mast, so Rohan decides to sacrifice himself to destroy the Radial Mast. Nimbus asks the Guardian to bring Rohan's core to them. Meanwhile, Calus informs the Witness of the Radial Mast's destruction. The Witness then berates Calus on his lack of purpose before reminding him to secure the Veil so the Witness can create a link to it.
HyperNet Current Nimbus notes a strange presence is detected within the CloudArk and then they and Caiatl task the Guardian with finding the source at the Vex Network. They defeat the Shadow Legion and a Tormentor named Toniq, Imprint of Nezarec guarding a Taken blight. They enter the Vex Domain and clear out Taken blights and rifts along the way. An unidentified voice claims the Vex Domain for itself, with Caiatl commenting on its similarities to the Nightmares they encountered in the Derelict Leviathan. They find Parthenios, Drifting Mind, a Taken Hydra and expel it from the Vex Domain. Caiatl instructs them to return to Neomuna to make final preparations to claim the Veil, but before they leave, the unidentified voice reveals itself to be Nezarec, another Disciple of the Witness now haunting the Neomuni.
Headlong The Guardian forms a plan: Caiatl would rally the remaining Cabal at her side, Nimbus would reactivate the remaining CloudArk defenses throughout Neomuna, and Osiris would help them complete their understanding of Strand. On the way, they see the Shadow Legion preparing for a siege to uncover the Veil. They wield Strand from a different perspective and use that knowledge against the Vex. They interact with a large Strand font and discover the second Aspect of their Strand subclass. Upon mastery of the second Aspect, Osiris asks them to finish their training on the VexNet. They return to the Vex Domain and finish their proficiency of Strand by slaying the curator, Ioneion, System Control Flow. Phase 1 of their plan is complete, so they begin phase 2.
Desperate Measures For phase 2 to proceed, they must destroy the AA turrets set up by the Shadow Legion before they go to the plaza to defend it. They use their weapons and abilities to defend themselves and the CloudArk turrets against Shadow Legion troops as well as Ishtar Collective ordnance to destroy Goliath Tanks. Empress Caiatl and her troops arrive to help the Guardian, therefore completing phase 2 of their plan. Phase 3 begins as the Shadow Legion continues its assault on the plaza. They and Caiatl are forced to defend the plaza on their own when the CloudArk turrets go down. The assault is on hold when a projection of Calus taunts Caiatl and blasts open the Veil Containment site. The Guardian navigates the abandoned Ishtar Collective lab before seeing the Veil themselves. Ghost becomes fascinated by the Veil's paracausal power being similar to the Traveler. As they continue exploring deeper in the lab, Caiatl informs them that Calus is on his way to their location for a final showdown, completing phase 3 of their plan. They confront Calus underneath the Veil and defeat him once and for all despite his powers as a Disciple of the Witness. Their victory is short-lived as the Witness possesses Ghost once again and establishes a link with the Veil. Ghost wonders what happened, to which Caiatl replies they lost. The Witness uses the Veil's power to create an incision on the Traveler and begins its plans for the Final Shape by entering the portal to the Pale Heart.
The Aftermath The Guardian begins assisting the Neomuni in recovering from the war on Neomuna, from helping to track down Rohan's notes leading them into the Black Garden to assisting the Archivist in repairing Cloud Strider monuments damaged by the Vex. Despite the recovery efforts, the Neomuni would become haunted by nightmares, believing Nezarec to be responsible. The Guardian finally gains their mastery on Strand as they can now use it outside Neptune.
28 February-28 March Operation: Prison Break The Guardian meets Mara Sov, Mithrax, and Devrim Kay at the Farm. Mara Sov explains that the gift from her will be paramount to their operation to rescue prisoners captured. They begin at the EDZ, where they follow Amanda Holliday's distress signal. They use the Ascendant Scepter to breach the Pyramid warding through the Ascendant Plane. Then, they defeat the warden in charge using the Ascendant Scepter's balefires before they rescue Amanda. On the way out, she accidentally shoots Crow, believing him to be of Shadow Legion. Crow dismisses the comment as they all leave the Pyramid outpost in the EDZ. The Guardian receives a transmission from Mara Sov at the War Table explaining the Awoken becoming the latest addition to the Coalition and the role of a Queensguard. She tasks them with rescuing more prisoners before she can coronate them as Queensguard. They complete the task and become Queensguard. They then receive a message from Holliday thanking them for their rescue and telling them that another Pyramid outpost is found, this time in the Cosmodrome. Upon arrival, Crow and Devrim note that the outpost is almost empty. They breach the warding using the Ascendant Scepter and enter it, but they are ambushed by Shadow Legion and Taken. The warden in charge uses its Psionic powers to banish the Guardian back to the Ascendant Plane. They overcome the warden's Psionic powers, defeat them, and rescue more prisoners. They call Devrim via holoprojector and learn from him that Mara has crowned him and Crow Queensguard as well. Mara then informs the Guardian that a Shadow Legion prison ship is in Earth's orbit, but it is impenetrable from the air, so they must use the Ascendant Scepter to breach its defenses. They learn that through their usage of balefires, they can open new Ley Line pathways. They use Ghost to hack the Shadow Legion security computer, then defeat the warden in charge of the orbital prison ship. Upon their success in freeing prisoners from the orbital prison, Amanda and Mithrax celebrate the occasion. Amanda reveals her journey to the Last City and the struggles of humanity. After the Guardian frees more prisoners, Amanda explains her reason for wanting to volunteer for the operation. She and Mithrax pick up a distress signal from a Shadow Legion prison base in the EDZ Tunnel, but they request assistance from the Guardian. They infiltrate the tunnels, destroy Shadow Legion heavy infantry, and defeat a Tormentor loyal to the Witness: Vereziia, Reverent of the Witness. Mithrax is able to free the prisoners, but Amanda is killed in the explosion. Zavala, Crow, Mara Sov, and Mithrax all grieve the loss of Amanda, with Crow seeking vengeance and Mithrax blaming himself for her death. Mara and Caiatl reassure him that Amanda chose to die in the explosion and to lay aside his guilt.
7 March Acquisition of Vexcalibur The civilians of the EDZ begin seeing anomalies around the Gulch. The Guardian investigates the anomalies and follows the signal to a cave. Mithrax discovers a Vex signal leading to a blue-eyed Harpy beeping "Assistant" in Morse Code, implying Asher Mir is still present in the Vex Domain somewhere. They penetrate the Avalon domain without the help of the Splicer Gauntlet, much to Mithrax's surprise, and follow the signal. Mithrax learns that the local Vex and the Avalon domain are at odds with each other, all thanks to Asher Mir, who has been fighting to stay independent of the Vex Network. With direction from Asher, they slay Variant Stalker Brakion, Repurposed Mind. A hologram of Asher Mir then allows the Guardian to retrieve Vexcalibur, thanking them for freeing him from his pain. On subsequent returns to the Avalon domain, they learn more secrets Asher is revealing to them and Mithrax, using data from Specimen Mu, Specimen Iota, and Specimen Gamma, as well as the nature of the Pyramids as mediums. On another death of Brakion, Asher reveals that his research about the nature of the Pyramids holds knowledge about the Veil before he becomes fully subsumed by the Vex Network.
10 March The Final God of Pain's Fall With Nezarec's influence continuing to haunt the Neomuni, the Guardians find him at the source: the terraformed Pyramid formerly inhabited by the Witness. They navigate the interior of the Pyramid, shattered by the accelerated growth of a Tree of Silver Wings within. Interacting with seeds of Light and Dark spread throughout the Pyramid, the Guardians begin the process of reviving Nezarec. They learn that they can combine the effects of both seeds to provide shelter against overwhelming energy periodically pulsating from Nezarec's sarcophagus. They reach an orrery and defeat Zo'aurc, Explicator of Planets, a Shadow Legion commander. After a short while following the Explicator's death, Nezarec's new body finishes regenerating and they confront the Guardians personally. Despite his usage of both Light and Dark, he succumbs to the Guardians, ending his influence on the Neomuni. Osiris declares they will find out where the Witness went through the portal based on the clues it has left behind inside its terraformed Pyramid.
18 April Retribution Crow forms a plan for vengeance for the death of Amanda Holliday. The Guardian would infiltrate a Shadow Legion flagship hanging in Earth's orbit using the Ascendant Scepter while he, Devrim, and Mithrax would distract the forces occupying it. Crow detonates the charges set up in the hangar after the Guardian dispels the Pyramid beacons using balefires. The Guardian makes their way to the engine room as Mithrax leads the Corsairs out of the flagship along with Devrim and Crow. The Guardian uses powers sent by Mara Sov to destroy the cooling fans and scuttle the flagship by destroying its engines. They leave the flagship and see it blow up in the sky within the Farm. The forces of the Coalition celebrate their victory and honor the memory of Amanda. Crow informs them that the Awoken have fully committed to the causes of the Coalition alongside the House of Light, the Cabal loyal to Empress Caiatl, and the people of Neomuna, and bids them farewell for now as Devrim and Mithrax continue the operation to rescue the remaining prisoners captured by the Shadow Legion. The Guardian returns to Zavala, who informs them that Amanda has left them a parting gift in the Tower Hangar. They gain the keys to her personal ship.
2 May-23 May The 4th Guardian Games The Guardian Games return to the Tower once again. The Titan class wins the 4th Guardian Games.
Return of Bracus Zahn Following the decimation of the Shadow Legion flagship on Earth, the Coalition turns their attention to a Cabal base in the EDZ. Empress Caiatl dispatches her Psions to secure the base, but they are soon captured by Shadow Legion forces under the command of the new Bracus Zahn. Devrim and the Cabal Empress task the Guardian with freeing her forces so the Ascendant Guards can fight alongside them in their assault on the base. The Guardian follows Zahn and defeats him along with their Cabal allies, putting an end to his legacy.
The Lake of Shadows Devrim asks the Guardian to eliminate the Taken infesting the EDZ by using a Resonant Splinter. They eliminate the Shadow Legion and Taken forces along the way including a Chimera. They reach the source of the infestation: Gor'ath Gath and put it down.

Season of the Deep[edit]

Year Date Event Information
23 May Recovery of Deputy Commander Sloane Upon repairing all of the Cloud Strider monuments damaged by the Vex on Neomuna, Soteria informs the Guardian that an enemy of the Witness is hiding somewhere on Titan. The Vanguard decides to pursue this lead as they have run out of options to follow the Witness inside the portal it created using the Veil's energy. Zavala organizes a rescue team upon receiving a distress signal from none other than Deputy Commander Sloane. He selects himself, Saladin, Saint-14, and the Guardian to partake in the mission to find the source of Sloane's distress signal. As they continue exploring the derelict rig on Titan, Xivu Arath announces her presence by sending in Taken and Hive forces to hamper the rescue team's efforts to find Sloane. The Drifter arrives on Titan's orbit via the Derelict to assist the rescue team. After pushing back Xivu Arath's forces and aligning the communications array, Zavala traces the signal to Kraken Mare. They attempt to dive into the methane sea, but the pressure tries to kill them. The Difter provides them a prototype diving gear to overcome the methane sea pressure. Zavala follows the Guardian to the source of the signal and the both of them reunite with Sloane. She reveals the Taken corruption inhabiting her body and introduces them to a sea monster named Ahsa. She tells them that Ahsa is an ally who holds vital information about the Witness, and gives them diving gear from the Golden Age to replace the ones provided by the Drifter. Sloane and the Drifter explain the mission: for Ahsa to reveal everything she knows about the Witness, they must first extract Egregore samples from the depths of Kraken Mare so she can then form a psychic connection with Sloane. They go to recover Golden Age tech from the New Pacific Arcology before working with Sloane to hunt a Wrathborn Servitor and extract the first set of Egregore samples. Sloane explains more about her Taken corruption being used to eavesdrop on enemy communications before she tells the Guardian she needs time to recover before she's ready to form another psychic connection with Ahsa.
30 May-13 June Deep Dives Zavala debriefs Sloane on the events that have occured since Titan was captured by the Witness, from Savathûn disguising herself as Osiris to the formation of an alliance between the Vanguard, the Awoken, the Cabal Empire led by Empress Caiatl, and the Eliksni House of Light, from Guardians using the powers of Darkness to the appearance of the Lucent Brood, and from the discovery of Neomuna to the deaths of Reed-7 and her closest friend Amanda Holliday. After the debrief concludes, they continue the mission to extract more Egregore samples so Ahsa can provide more intel on the Witness. Xivu Arath psychically attacks Sloane as they dive deeper and confront Kudazad, Bound to Xivu Arath and Kelgorath, Taken from Bones, who are stopping the Guardian from recovering the next set of Egregore samples needed to form a connection with Ahsa. They learn from her that the Witness's species was once blessed by the Traveler's Light, confirming one of Savathûn's statements on the origins of the Witness. They also learn more about the first conflict between Light and Darkness and the Witness's plan to seek the Final Shape.
20 June The Witness unveiled After some time extracting the coral and then using it to form a psychic connection with Ahsa, she is finally able to explain the origins of the Witness. She explains that the Witness is a gestalt of the first civilization uplifted by the Traveler, made manifest through Darkness. She also reveals that the Final Shape is the Witness's plan to reshape the universe to its liking by connecting the Veil to the Traveler, just as it had done earlier by using Ghost. She warns them that the Final Shape will be apocalyptic before disconnecting from Sloane. Sloane is shocked at the recent events on Titan and loses faith in her mission in some way before dismissing them. After gaining intel on the Witness, Xivu Arath's forces attack Ahsa and forcibly begin a ritual to Take her. The Guardian travels with Zavala, Sloane, Saladin, and Saint-14 to stop the ritual in the depths of Kraken Mare as Drifter provides tactical support. With assistance from Saladin's Iron War Beasts, the team can defeat the Wizards conducting the rituals and free Ahsa. They return to the site where Sloane forms a psychic connection with Ahsa, but as she forms the connection one last time, Xivu Arath corrupts Sloane's body. Zavala's encouraging words stop Xivu Arath from completely robbing Sloane of her free will. Ahsa reveals that Savathûn, the Witch Queen, possesses the instructions to follow the Witness inside the portal. The necessity to bring back Savathûn angers both Saladin and Saint-14, but Zavala reassures them that the Hidden will contain the situation. Before leaving the H.E.L.M., Zavala reminds the Guardian to bring hope to those who don't have it. They brief Sloane, who informs them that the mission is complete and she'll stay on Titan to keep an eye on Ahsa, who is now resting from the psychic connections she had to endure.
The Lucent Ritual After Xivu Arath pulls her forces out of Titan, the Lucent Brood crash-lands their ship underneath the Arcology and begins a ritual to resurrect Oryx. Sloane advises the Guardian to discover and put an end to the ritual, but she is unable to provide further instructions due to the ritual interfering with their comms. They navigate the methane sea and the Lucent Hive wreckage. There, they see a champion of Oryx resurrected into the Lucent Brood: Ecthar, the Shield of Savathûn. After defeating him and then crushing his Ghost, they navigate the wreckage further and discover the ritual site being orchestrated by Šimmumah ur-Nokru, a Lucent Necromancer attempting to have a Hive Ghost resurrect the Taken King. They were able to put an end to the ritual, restoring the comms between them and Sloane. She requests the Hidden to secure Oryx's remains. Chalco Yong, Lisbon-13, and Fenchurch Everis]are the members selected to extract Oryx's remains from Titan. They send a report to Ikora regarding a terrifying revelation: Oryx is still alive despite the lack of his Worm symbiote and he remembers Xivu Arath's presence as explained through the calcified fragments scattered throughout the Arcology and beyond.
4 July Acquisition of Wicked Implement Xivu Arath allows the Guardian access into her temple underneath Kraken Mare after they recovered and deposited broken blades into 3 different statues. The Guardian would defeat the Taken Knight Khull, Executioner Knight and the Tormentor Omen, Blade of the Black Terrace. After tithing the death to Xivu Arath, she would deem them worthy of wielding the Wicked Implement so they could continue to tithe to her.
23 May-28 November Veil Containment Meanwhile on Neomuna, Osiris and Nimbus learn about the Veil through logs left behind by Dr. Chioma Esi]], an Ishtar Collective scientist and one of the founders. It is revealed that her wife, Maya Sundaresh, is attempting to use the Veil to replicate what happened with the Witness when its civilization merged into itself using Darkness and with Calus's experiments with the Scorn aboard the Glykon. Out of shame, Chioma sends Lakshmi-2 to Earth and orders the Veil Containment site to be shut down forever.

As a result, she sends in her greatest champion to test the Guardian's combat capabilities: the Leviathan-Eater, Bane of the Ammonites and harbinger of the Hive God of War. The Knight withdraws from combat after seeing the Guardian's strength over it. As Eris looks for a way to defeat Xivu Arath, they participate in Savathûn's experiments with the Light by attuning to the energies of Arc, Solar, and Void. They would also uncover a chamber above the oubliette called The Imbaru Engine, a place used by Savathûn to generate Imbaru, her inversion of the Sword Logic that gains her power through deception and confusion.

Season of the Wish[edit]

Year Date Event Information
28 November Riven returns The Guardian returns to the Dreaming City as the Witness sends the Sol Divisive to invade it and hamper their efforts to bypass the portal into the Pale Heart while it begins to enact the Final Shape. The Guardian visits Riven's corpse and recovers an Ahamkara tooth so the Techeuns can conjure the spirit of Riven, and attempt to uncover the 15th wish. Riven refuses to grant the 15th wish until she tasks the Guardian with recovering her clutch. Riven accuses Mara of scattering her clutch when the Guardian enters her lair and discovers that it is missing from its physical location. The Techeuns would use the Ley Lines to locate the clutch. After recovering the first of her clutch, Riven reveals the relationship between her species and the Awoken before tasking them with clearing out her lair while the Techeuns locate the remaining eggs. Osiris would also look into an alternative solution should Riven be tricky via the Veil.
5 December The next egg recovered The Techeuns would finally locate the second of her clutch; however, Petra informs the Guardian that it will be more difficult to locate and recover the remaining eggs without the help of the Harbingers: mysterious entities that were once used in the Battle of Saturn. Petra tasks them with recovering a Starlight Lodestone from the Chamber of Starlight to guide the Harbinger to the clutch still scattered. Before returning to Riven, Osiris would provide an update on the Veil and his attempts to replicate the Witness's link to it through the Guardian's Ghost.
Secrets in the EDZ Crow discovers a Scorn presence in the EDZ and provides their last known location to the Hidden. The Guardian follows the clues to a snowy mountain containing a Dark Age castle. They defeat Rathil, First Broken Knight of Fikrul, but a Chimera bearing the avatar of Hefnd places them in jail. They break free from jail and continues their pursuit until they are forced to confront the Locus of Wailing Grief and defeat it. They reach the summit of the mountain and defeat the Chimera. After the Chimera is defeated, Crow and Petra would begin uncovering the story of Hefnd and its relationship with Naeem as the Guardian collects Hefnd's bones. The truth is finally revealed to them once the Guardian enters Hefnd's Cairn. They would present their finds to Ikora.
12 December The 3rd egg recovered Before the Harbinger can track the next egg, they must allow the Techeuns to attune the Starlight Lodestone to it by participating in the Coil, then returning to the Spine of Keres to calibrate the Lodestone. As they recover the next egg, Riven begins taunting Crow on his role in creating the Scorn when he was Uldren Sov. They finally recover the egg and witness a conversation between him and Mara. Osiris informs the Guardian that with his progress on his attempt to replicate the Witness's link to the Veil being very slow, the Ahamkara are the only solution to follow the Witness inside the portal.
19 December Starcrossed The Sol Divisive continues their invasion of the Dreaming City by creating an Axis Mind capable of simulating the Techeuns and deploying Oracles from the Vault of Glass into Riven's lair, which are mimicking resonance used by the Witness and its Disciples. The Guardian arrives to collect the next egg. Unfortunately, they would arrive too late, as the Sol Divisive manages to steal the egg and then transport it into the Black Garden, near Taranis's corpse. The theft of the egg angers Riven, but Osiris assures her that the egg can still be recovered. Crow discovers that the egg is inside the Black Garden, so he sends the Guardian to recover it using Riven's accessway. They would use the sparks left behind by Riven and another Ahamkara to navigate the Black Garden and defeat the Axis Mind. After the Guardian finally recover the egg, Riven learns that Taranis is responsible for scattering the clutch, used as his final wish at the cost of death. Riven explains the relationship between her and Taranis before the Great Ahamkara Hunt, when they were separated. The Guardian returns to Riven, who instructs them to honor Taranis's memory by keeping Wish-Keeper. They would uncover her messages in the Black Garden and the Dreaming City by forming constellations with Wish-Keeper. They learn the truth after finding all the celestial anomalies: they find a symbol of the Ishtar Collective with Vex architecture
26 December The 5th egg recovered Riven instructs the Guardian to stop the Taken attempting to corrupt the next egg they will soon recover. The Guardian defeats a Taken Knight once loyal to Xivu Arath, but learns that the Taken have succeeded in their plan to corrupt the egg. Mara proposes a solution to cleanse it of its corruption: they would first acquire Taken essentia by completing an Ascendant Challenge, then allow the whim to feed on their desires. With egg cleansed, they return to Riven, who is in a conversation with Mara and Osiris. She reveals that the 15th wish would allow only one individual to enter the Pale Heart via the Ley Lines. Mara becomes furious at Riven for withholding the information, but Osiris stops her with Strand, and the both of them leave. Osiris concludes his investigations into the Veil and reveals that one more egg must be recovered before Riven can grant the 15th wish.
2 January-9 January The final egg recovered The Techeuns have found the location of the final egg, but they must first reactivate the Oracle Engine by destroying Sol Divisive Oracles. Before they go to recover the final egg, Crow shares his plans with Mara, Osiris, and the Guardian: he volunteers to be the first Guardian to enter the Pale Heart via the Ley Lines. After recovering all of the eggs, they return to the Wall of Wishes to enter the 15th and final wish. It is successful, but Riven suffers the same fate as Taranis. Mara informs them that once Crow and Osiris form the bridge that allows the Coalition a safe passage through the portal, they will finally be able to confront the Witness before it can complete the Final Shape
