Europa is one of the Galilean moons in orbit of the planet Jupiter. Vex influence is known to be present on the icy moon. It is also the location of the Deep Stone Crypt and the resting point of a Pyramid that entered the Solar System during the Golden Age.
Guided by messages from the K1 Anomaly, Clovis Bray I discovered an artifact or entity on Europa which he called “Clarity Control”, which granted him the ability to combine its power and Radiolaria to create an ingredient vital to the Exo project that he dubbed “alkahest.” In doing this, the Deep Stone Crypt was constructed to facilitate the production of an alkahest, processing Vex from the blue hypergiant 2082 Volantis. Following a series of mishaps involving Elisabeth Bray’s objections to the project, Clovis sealed his consciousness within the Crypt for eternity.
Nearly three years after the conclusion of the Red War and after the long journey of the main fleet back to the system, the Europan Pyramid re-emerged from the ice and out into the open surface, where it was quickly re-discovered. Later, Eris Morn and the Drifter, who were contacted by the Exo Stranger, were seen headed towards Europa to find the very ship. Guardians since then have been retaking the lost region of Rathmore Chaos against the Fallen House Salvation, working with allies new and old and harnessing new Darkness Powers known as Stasis.
