Unveiled is a Destiny 2 quest introduced in Season of the Witch as part of the Lightfall expansion. It is available for Season Pass owners after completing the "Parting the Veil" quest and unlocks new aspects for the Strand subclasses.[1]

Visit Nimbus at Strider's Gate in Neomuna to begin the quest.


"And my vanquisher will read that book, seeking the weapon, and they will come to understand me, where I have been and where I was going."
The following is a verbatim transcription of an official document for archival reasons. As the original content is transcribed word-for-word, any possible discrepancies and/or errors are included.


Nimbus greets you with their usual enthusiasm. "Guardian! Listen, Osiris just got in touch. He says his data crawler uncovered all kinds of weird stuff."

Their smile becomes a little self-deprecating. "You're better at understanding ancient history and... what did the old bird call it? Paracausal studies? Something like that. The point is, I think you'll get more out of Osiris's data crawler than I will."

"Head back down there and take a look. And let me know if you find anything interesting."

Step 1: Unveiled[edit]

Check on Osiris's data crawler for more information about the Veil's history.

  • Data crawler inspected

The data crawler has been hard at work.


The data crawler is accessed from the computer terminal in Veil Containment.


On Neomuna, the Guardian accesses the terminal on Veil Containment's archive.

  • OSIRIS: I found no more logs from Dr Esi, but I have used her algorithm to crack the data core of the Vex Conceptual Mind.
  • NIMBUS: That's the doodad we got from the Black Garden, right?
  • OSIRIS: Indeed. The data within contained the Vex's blueprints for their artificial Veil: the Black Heart. It all but proved Dr. Esi's theory. Dr Esi theorized that the paracausal energy of the Traveler operated on a quantum wavelength parallel to electrons.
  • NIMBUS: Um... magnets?
  • OSIRIS: In simpler terms: the Traveler's power runs parallel to the forces of nature. Gravity, magnetism, sound, light. The Veil does this too. It is synchronized with the Traveler. Wherever the Traveler came from, the Veil may have as well. But what the Vex made, while connected to the Traveler, was inherently flawed. It did not create the link the Witness desired. Instead, it weakened the Traveler, created... "static" in the flow of their cosmic forces. But it did reveal one intriguing possibility... that at one time, they may have been... united. Part of a whole.
  • NIMBUS: Whoa! So, wait... does this mean the Light and Darkness... were the same once? One force?
  • OSIRIS: Dr. Esi believed so. I am... not as convinced. But it is a theory. One many scholars will explore once this data is shared. But this data allowed me to calculate the telemetry of the beam the Veil fired at the Traveler. When the Witness linked to the Veil through a Ghost, it created a faster-than-light connection of Darkness to the Traveler's Light... ...a bridge to the Traveler's consciousness. If it has one. But the beam did not stop at the Traveler... rather, a point inside of it.
  • NIMBUS: Inside? Wait, what's inside the Traveler?
  • OSIRIS: No one knows. But if the data I have been able to extrapolate here is correct, that is where the Witness is now: inside the Traveler. It may be the reason why the Traveler has gone dormant—its attention directed inward, where the true threat is. But I am speculating. There is more I need to study, but I fear it will take a substantially longer amount of time.
  • NIMBUS: How long do you need?
  • OSIRIS: Months. If we have that long left, that is. Until then, I suppose.

Step 2: Unveiled[edit]

Return to the meditation table to obtain your next Strand Aspect.

  • Aspect obtained

Meditate on your deepened understanding of the Veil.


A new Strand Aspect is available for free at the Pouka Pond. Claim it to complete the quest.
