“Following the events of the Hive Prince Crota and the betrayal of the House of Wolves, a Hive Fleet led by Hive God Oryx arrived in our Solar System. The Awoken fleet led by Queen Mara Sov is quickly decimated by Oryx’s Dreadnaught superweapon even though the Queen’s Harbingers, powerful ionic blasts, were utilized by her and her Techeuns. Following the Awoken battle, Oryx began using his power of taking enemies to subject them to his will. This threat affected every enemy race Guardians have faced in the system. Eventually, Guardians infiltrated the Dreadnaught that had been stationed near Saturn and killed Oryx in his physical form. A group of Guardians later destroyed him in his Ascendant realm and used his remaining essence to fashion a weapon with the help of Eris Morn. Guardians also assisted Variks, The Loyal and Queen Emissary Petra Venj with their efforts to dispel and eliminate the remaining House of Wolves.
Guardians learned new abilities with the Light; in addition, the city revamped its weapon and inventory systems. Throughout the year, Guardians celebrated new traditions called the Festival of the Lost and The Dawning. Later in the spring, Variks, The Loyal helped Guardians track the Hive Prince Malok, hoping to capture him and bring him to the Prison of Elders. The Guardians killed Malok. Variks, although disappointed by this, had enough Taken in his Prison for Guardians and other entities to face.”
