Tree of Silver Wings
The tree of silver wings is a mysterious entity referred to by multiple sources, typically in association with either the Black Garden or the metaphorical "garden" allegorically used to describe the state of reality predating the universe. It once existed alongside the Gardener and Winnower, until the two entities began fighting with one another and destroyed it in their struggles.
Another "tree of silver wings" was discovered by the Guardian and Eris Morn in the heart of the Cradle on Io. It was stated by Eris that the Traveler created it when it arrived on Io but the connection between this tree and the original is unclear; however, the flavor text for the Seed of Silver Wings recovered from the tree strongly implies that both share a similar nature. Moreover, Ruinous Effigy, a trace rifle created from a branch of the tree, shares the motif of ruin and disaster described by Ruin Wings' flavor text.
