"When it moves, it's a ribbon of violet moonlight."
— In-game description

Zavala's Authority is an Exotic Arcadia-class Jumpship owned by the Titan Vanguard Commander Zavala. It was available to Guardians after they reached rank 50 with the Vanguard during Season 3 of Destiny 2.


Zavala: "The problem with Rasputin is that it's a machine."

Cayde-6: "You know, I'm standing right here."

Z: "There's a difference between a trigger-happy Exo and artificial intelligence. Rasputin is satisfied. Complete. It regards itself as the pinnacle of creation. It doesn't want to be equal, or stand around a table and banter. It wants to be better, and we've programmed it to get what it wants. That's the nature of the machine."

C6: "Of THAT machine."

Z: "The problem with Rasputin is that we made it what it is, we modeled it, and it learned well."

C6: "So you don't trust machines, but *I'm* OK 'cause I'm one of the good ones. That's not very generous, boss."

Z: "I don't remember saying that you were OK."

C6: "…"

Z: "What?"

C6: "IKORA! ZAVALA MADE A JOKE! You're not Ikora. Where's Ikora? IKORA!"
