“Ana Bray, a Guardian long thought lost, searches for a connection to her past…one that could be lost forever on the polar ice caps of Mars. As Golden Age Warsats began slamming into the ice, the glaciers began to thaw, revealing the core of the Warmind Rasputin – and an ancient Hive army bent on its destruction. Now free, the Hive swarm in service to their god Xol. Guardians assisted Ana with her discovery of her past and eventually destroyed the Hive’s worm-god Xol, Will of the Thousands, saving Rasputin. Now at full strength, Rasputin makes note of his power to the Guardians.
Meanwhile, Emperor Calus opens a new section of the Leviathan to the Guardians so that they can repel a Red Legion assault led by Val Ca’uor. On Mars, Rasputin ordered the Escalation Protocol, an event that would trigger a horde of Hive to spawn. Guardians were tasked to clear rounds and eliminate the core boss. During this season, Guardians celebrated Solstice of Heroes and participated in Faction Rallies.”
