Who is Dredgen Yor?

Character Lore

Dredgen Yor

Hours passed. More? Time was lost in this place, and with it any remembrance of hope… of promise… of purpose in the longing for a brighter tomorrow. Down amongst the shadows there were no tomorrows. Down in the abyss there was no hope. He could sense the witch, but found it impossible to track her in the dark. The demon witch circled just beyond the reach of each burst’s glow. The demon approached the writhing hero. As she spoke her violent words began to take shape, morphing from syllables of death to a known offering of haunted human languages. The demon woman leaned in close… and whispered, intimately. His ears bled as she spoke.

Welcome back guardians, the Rise of Iron new grimoire cards have been released, and I believe that they reveal Dredgen Yor’s identity. Thank you to whoever tipped me off on Twitter, unfortunately I could not find the original post, so feel free to contact me again. I know Viciousvictortee also sent me the same theory but I believe someone was also just before him.

To be sure to follow me on twitch for Rise of Iron release and discussion of all the new Lore! This is myelin games and I hope you enjoy this latest destiny Lore episode

Lets just say it, the new Rezyl Azzir card, Legends and Mysteries: Rezyl Azzir, implies that Rezyl Azzir is Dredgen Yor. It describes how Rezyl Azzir goes to the Moon and makes contact with a Hive Wizard, known as Xyor. Yes, the same wizard in the original Exotic quest line for Thorn. The Wizard encircles Rezyl Azzir despite his gunfire and whispers in his ears causing them to bleed.

She says,

“I am the end of ‘morrows. Xyor, the Blessed. Xyor, the Betrothed. I am of the coming storm. These are not my words, but prophesy. Your Light will one day shatter and die. For now it simply offends… And you, dear, sweet, fragile thing, shall be made to suffer for your transgressions upon this holy ground.”

This is what I believe to be the beginning of Rezyl Azzir’s corruption and transformation into Dredgen Yor. The Card ends with

“Rezyl had come looking for the terrors that hide just beyond the light. He found them. Or, maybe… …they found him.”

It does not specifically state that Rezyl Azzir is Dredgen Yor, however considering the Rezyl Azzir was a hero, a beacon of hope, he suits the profile. Considering he met a wizard on Luna, who is involved in the Exotic quest line for Thorn, this provides greater confidence in his identity. However, this means Dredgen yor is a Titan, what is going on?! There is a Dredgen yor’s hunter cape and the Thorn grimoire card pictures a Warlock.

Well, it turns out, there are a number of characters with the Title Dredgen. The new grimoire cards reveal Dredgen Vale and Dredgen Bane. Dredgen Vale original name is Zyre Orsa and Dredgen Bane’s original name is Teben Grey. It seems that they tried to follow in Dredgen Yor’s path but attempted to avoid corruption and use the Hive power to take advantage in the crucible. The Ghost Fragment: blind Watch reads:

[u.1:01] I’m assuming you’re aware of the events on Mars.
[u.2:01] The results from Blind Watch?
[u.1:02] Yes. It may be starting again. Not saying it is, but we need to keep an eye on any who would seek to retrace Yor’s path.
[u.2:02] Agreed. But Orsa and his friends seem to have contained what Yor could not.
[u.1:03] A dangerous assumption. The Thorn’s pestilence is becoming commonplace.

The Ghost Fragment: Cathedral of Dusk then reads,

[u.1:01] Thorn, huh?
[u.2:01] Freshly-crafted. You like?
[u.1:02] A little risky playing with something that’s been known to kill Guardians, isn’t it?
[u.2:02] Look where we are. Everything in the system’s been known to kill Guardians.
[u.1:03] Sure. But there’s facing trouble and there’s asking for it.
[u.2:03] This isn’t like the stories we’ve heard about Yor. Vale figured this out. Tamed it.

Then finally Ghost Fragment the Cauldron reads,

[u.1:01] We were facing a full squad. I recognized a couple of them—Orsa, Teben—but they were different. Decked out in dark gear and set to intimidate. I took it as an attempt at psychological warfare— up the creep factor in a creepy place. But it was more than that. They had changed.

Sooo, Dredgen Vale has said to have contained the power the Yor discovered and is using it in the crucible forming a squad of guardians decked out in Dark Gear! Maybe this explains why we see Warlock and Hunter gear associated with Thorn, these are the Dark Gaurdians in the Crucible? I am going to end the video there because I want to get back to sifting through the cards!

Be sure to follow me on twitch to discuss all the new lore as it is released. If you would like to support the channel and cannot think of a comment, leave the phrase “Dredgen Squad” to acknowledge the squad of Dredgens dominating the crucible with their dark gear #DredgenSquad on twitter. A usual it has been a pleasure. This is myelin games.
