Tree of Silver Wings
From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
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.
The Garden Before Time
The tree once existed alongside the Gardener and Winnower. It was described as "ruinous", "disastrous", the air around it inspiring violence in those who would breathe even a little in. It was later brought down by the two entities fighting with each other, and left to smoke amid the meadows.
Discovery on Io
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 and Mk. 44 Stand Asides's loretab.
