Did any Iron Lords survive?

Character Lore

Iron Lords

I stood at the edge of Lords’ Watch and watched the enemy ~consume enhance replicate~.

SIVA curled and thrashed, creating tendrils that lashed out at us. It formed shapes that could grapple us, and angry swarms that buzzed around us before breaking apart to worm their way into every chink of our armor.

Warlords I know how to fight. This is ~consume enhance replicate~
I don’t want to die. I don’t want to die. I don’t want to die. I don’t want… ~consume enhance replicate~

Ghost? Ghost, where are you?

Malahayati, the Warmind?!

Character Lore

Malahayati (Warmind?)

Let’s get to it. How can Clovis Bray help the Exodus project? We’ve found a way to push our matter encryption technology even further. Habitats, equipment, repairs of all kinds—all of these things can be made from one material. SIVA doesn’t expire, degrade, or forget. It can remain dormant even on long voyages. Nearly any problem a deep-space colonist could have, SIVA can fix.

Welcome back guardians. Today we are talking about Malahayati, a suspected Warmind. The item descriptions of the new raid gear documents a conversation between General Chen Lanshu and Doctor Willa Bray from the Clovis Bray facility. They are discussing the use of SIVA for colonisation, specifically, the Exodus Project. Malahayati appears to be a Warmind assigned to protecting General Chen.

Last Twitch stream on Sunday night we are actually discovered a portion of this story, however it was not until I saw a reddit post later that night that the theory really came together. The original Reddit post was by “Jesse_Khaos” who documented the conversation between willa bray and General Chen and one of the top voted comments was by “KFC_just”, who introduced the warmind theory. The link is in the description if you would like to read the post.

Also in the description are a list of people that helped me complete the Thorn bounty whilst I was also on stream, please show them some love as this allowed me to capture all the in-game dialogue associated with the new Thorn bounty, mostly quotes by Dredgen Vale. Links to my twitch and my twitter are below, and I hope you enjoy this latest Destiny Lore episode.

How do Guardians Die?

Mystery

Guardians (death)

The Splicers are doomed. Just as the Iron Lords were, when he and his allies opened that vault. As Fallen continue to pour through the gap in the wall, they remind him of his friends in their final moment: a crimson pulse beats in place of their hearts. SIVA.

He puts his helmet on as an Iron battle axe forms in his hand, the air around him bursting into flame. The first wave of dregs approaches. Saladin breaks into a charge, swinging the axe to bear as he smashes into a storm of steel and weapons fire.

As his axe bites, again and again, Skorri’s Iron Song haunts him. He calls upon Radegast’s strength. Perun’s sense of purpose. Timur’s questions. Felwinter’s cynicism. Silimar’s persistence. Gheleon’s reasoning.

Jolder’s smile.

He always survives. When nothing else does.

Who are the Hidden?

Character lore

The Hidden

The Awoken have played their part. This was all part of the plan. Guide them, my Hidden friend. It is all up to you now.

What was Felwinter’s Lie?

Character Lore

Felwinter

Forged in remembrance of Felwinter, he who stared into the Void.

Welcome back guardians, today we discussing the classic Iron Banner weapon that sparked many theories about the Iron Lord, Felwinter. Of course we are talking about the Iron Banner shotgun Felwinter’s Lie. With the release of Rise of Iron many expected the lie of Felwinter to be revealed in the grimoire cards or even through in-game storytelling, however I personally did not find the answer very obvious. This destiny lore episode will explore four theories to what Felwinter’s Lie was? Unfortunately, if you are looking for a solid conclusion here, you will not find one, these are purely speculative theories based upon the grimoire cards and item descriptions.

At the end of this video, I have some exciting news, the comic book series is returning and I already have some artwork to share with you all. In addition I will be joining a new podcast called Destiny DownUnder, the links to the podcast twitch and twitter is in the description below and we will be live on twitch each Friday night from 10pm EST US, starting 14th October. Be sure to follow Destiny DownUnder on twitch and twitter so you don’t miss the first podcast!

The Redjacks! Robot uprising?

Character Lore

The Redjacks

Frames are simple automata built in the City. Although not equipped with true general sentience, they are nevertheless useful for cleaning, maintenance, and service tasks. Frames do have the ability to learn, and many develop quirks of personality and behavior over long lifespans.

Welcome back guardians. With the release of Rise of Iron, we saw 31 new Ghost Fragment grimoire cards that can be found in the crucible. There are actually 5 categories of these cards,“Redjack Surveillance Feed”, “Redjack after action debrief”, “Redjack After action data share”, “Live combat feed” and “Post match report”.

  1. Redjack Surveillance Feed

  2. Redjack after action debrief

  3. Redjack After action data share

  4. Live combat feed

  5. Post match report

The Redjack cards actually have a report number and can be put together to form a story about the Redjacks, very similar to how the SIVA memories and Raid armour form a story if placed in the correct order. AND the really interesting thing is, it has an I, Robot vibe to it, you know the movie about servant robots that turn against their masters.

Follow me on twitch for destiny live streams, keep up to date on twitter and tune into the Destiny down under podcast each week. All links are in the description below. This is myelin games and I hope you enjoy this latest destiny lore episode.

Who controls Aksis?

Character Lore

Aksis

Habitats, equipment, repairs of all kinds—all of these things can be made from one material. SIVA doesn’t expire, degrade, or forget. It can remain dormant even on long voyages. Nearly any problem a deep-space colonist could have, SIVA can fix. Just give it a directive, and it won’t stop until it gets a new directive. This sounds like it could be invaluable to Exodus colonists. But Malahayati has some concerns. General, poorly worded or malicious code is the fault of the programmer, not SIVA itself.

Welcome back Guardians, today we are discussing if Aksis, the final boss Wrath of the Machine truly controls SIVA, or if he was just a puppet of a greater master. The lore surrounding Aksis is relatively scarce, however when you combine all the lore from the Dormant SIVA clusters and the SIVA memories it does begin to provide some clarity to Aksis’s level of control over SIVA. This video will hopefully persuade you to believe that Aksis is not the final boss in the Wrath of the Machine, well from a Lore point of view he is not the final boss.

It has been a busy week of Destiny Lore, if you missed last week’s episodes, they include, “Who are they Hidden?”, “What was Felwinter’s lie?” and the “The Redjacks, Robot Uprising!”, the links are on screen and in the description. As is, all of my social media links, including twitch, twitter and the destiny down under podcast.

SIVA Gjallarhorn

Exotic weapon

Gjallarhorn

It is time we let the past guide our future. Lord Saladin has asked me to help you forge a mighty weapon. A powerful new Gjallarhorn for a new generation of Iron Lords. Know that when Gjallarhorn is mounted upon your shoulders the Wolfpack of fallen guardians stand at your side, when gjallarhorn howls, the Wolfpack will answer.

Welcome back guardians, today we are diving into the new Gjallarhorn quest line and extracting all the new lore delivered in game. Remember now that there are two versions of Gjallarhorn that exist, the original and the newly SIVA crafted version in Rise of Iron.

To write this script I called in some backup from the Lore masters over at Focus Fire Chat and Destiny lore cast, links to their podcasts are in the description. Also, I cannot take credit for that intro, the last sentence about the Gjallarhorn howling and the Wolf Pack will answering. was taken from Reddit and is one of my favourite non-cannon quotes, thanks to Foshkey for his post. All my social links are in the description and if you are watching this within 2 hours of release, I will be on Twitch right now.

This is myelin games and I hope you enjoy this latest Destiny lore episode.

Why Efrideet left?

Character Lore

Efrideet

Lady Efrideet was one of the most prominent characters. She once threw Saladin like a javelin into a Fallen Walker—a City favorite retold for centuries. How she met her end is less clear, but the tales agreed that Efrideet had long ago died her final death.

Until she returned.

Welcome back guardians, Today we are discussing Efrideet, the once Iron Lord who returned to take Saladin’s role as the Iron Banner vendor. Today we will discuss some general lore surrounding Efrideet, the events that occurred up until her disappearance, the reason why she left the Iron Lords and speculation on who she may be with? In researching this video, I stumbled up and amazing lore video about Efrideet, I highly recommend checking out Beard_Grizzly’s lore video, honestly, he only has 500 subs please go and double that. Link is in the description.

At the end of this video I will also showcase another talented artist named Brandon McCamey be sure to check him out. If you are watching this video in the first two hours of release, or between 6-8pm EST US, I will be live on twitch, come join. And finally, thank you to everyone who has supported the mental health project from the last video, I am reading your emails, unfortunately, it will take me at least a month to respond to everyone but rest assured I am reading them.

This is myelin games and I hope you enjoy this latest Destiny Lore episode.

How Guardians are chosen

Mystery

Guardians

The Traveler moved across the face of the iron world. It opened the earth and stitched shut the sky. It made life possible. In these things there is always symmetry. Do you understand? This is not the beginning but it is the reason. Chosen from the dead by the Traveler’s Ghosts, Guardians are those rare few able to wield the Light as a weapon. A dead thing made by a dead power in the shape of the dead. A thing that will only ever kill.

Welcome back Guardians. Today we are discussing How Ghosts select their Guardian: What makes us special, why were we chosen, when a Ghost scans a body what is it trying to detect? Whilst there are no clear answers, I would like to use the lore to suggest three theories and would love for some feedback from the community on this topic. If you have something else to add, leave it in the comments below.

The artwork at the beginning of this video was supplied by Brandon McCamey (aka Gammatrap), see his website for his latest paintings, watch videos of his works in progress, subscribe to his newsletter, and purchase the latest t-shirts. Link is in the description below. Thanks to AnonPig for his assistance with this script and also Trey.
