Xirash, Keeper of Memory is a large and powerful Hive Knight of the Lucent Brood, charged with protecting the Altar of Reflection. They are encountered as the final boss of the Missions Memories of Loss[1] and Altar of Reflection: Choice.[2]


After completing the two puzzles in the first area of the Altar of Reflection, the player will make their way to the main hall where Xirash appears, reinforced by large numbers of Hive Thrall and Acolytes, as well as a Lucent Archivist Wizard. The Knight wields a Boomer into battle, firing powerful Arc blasts that can travel long distances at their enemies. They are capable of creating large, lingering pools of fire by slamming the ground with their fist if the player gets too close, causing their health to drain rapidly from the increased Solar damage whilst also launching the player back away from them. They also have the ability to summon and throw Solar Mortars grenades which explode on impact, leaving behind a large pool of flames, forcing players to avoid the areas where they land until they dissipate.

If they enter Berserk Mode, Xirash will charge at the player, attempting to smash them with their Boomer, and will not stop until they have been hit. After the Knight sustains significant damage, more Hive reinforcements will arrive to help repel the intruder. Despite all of this, Xirash has very few defensive capabilities, and can be easily dispatched so long as the player keeps a reasonable distance and avoids the boss's flaming pools. After Xirash and the rest of their Hive allies have beeen defeated, the player will gain access to the Altar room itself, where they can can present an object to view a memory from Savathûn, the Witch Queen.
