Psion Uprising?

Character Lore

Psions

You are a Psion. Clever, canny specialist. Bolted into the Cabal hierarchy: a pilot, an investigator, a manipulator, an operative. Be still. Your endless vigilance is done. Nothing will enslave you ever again.
What hidden plan do you obey? What is your secret principle? Your mind is a weapon. The world breaks when you think. Secrets peel apart for you — like fruit. But you are a rare thing. There are so few of you.

Welcome back Guardians. Today I wanted to talk about the Psions, I originally started looking into this topic because I wanted to draw a comparison to the new Cabal enemy type seen in the trailer… you know those shark-dog things, as obviously the Psions and this new enemy look very different from the standard Cabal unit. However, what I found more interesting about the Psions was that they may have a secret plan… a plan that may free them from the cabal.

This Myelin Games and I hope you enjoy this latest Destiny Lore episode.

Psions are often considered slaves to the Cabal and whilst I always generally knew about this, I never had really looked at the cards and which cards specifically indicate this. So let me know talk about the grimoire cards that imply the Psions are weaponised slaves to the Cabal.

Firstly, the Psion grimoire card hints that the Psions may be an unrelated species, it reads,

“Psions are smaller than all other Cabal morphs, and may be an unrelated species. Hyper-intelligent, fast and unpredictable, they possess strong psionic capabilities.”

Interestingly it says that they are “smaller than all other Cabal morphs”, I assume when they say Morph, they are referring to the Morphology of the Cabal i.e. their form, shape, size, structure, so this is just saying they look different and MAY be a different species, alternatively they MAY also be the same species but just look different.

The Future of Factions

Destiny 2 Factions

Will factions stay or leave in Destiny 2?

The ships are battle-scarred. Many are barely spaceworthy. As warp drives wind down several seem to lose power and begin to drift. Some of the largest craft bear imagery familiar to frequent visitors to the tower: Dead Orbit symbols, the simple icon of the Vanguard. The New Monarchy and Future War Cult as well, though fewer examples can be seen. Others bears symbols never seen in the Tower to date.

Every single ship, from the largest cruiser to the smallest personal craft, carries shards of stone, remnants of the City and the Tower. Banners too, tattered and worn from entering and leaving warp.

Welcome back guardians. Today we are discussing the main tower factions, New Monarchy, Dead Orbit and Future War cult and their potential involvement in Destiny 2. Using the grimoire cards and item descriptions I will describe the lore behind each faction and their likely response to the Cabal invasion.

Many have noticed the prominent role of New monarchy within the Destiny 2 trailer, and have asked why? Why are they the main focus, where is Future War Cult and Dead Orbit. I hope this video can provide some clarity to the factions response.

Before we start, I want to say thank you for helping me achieve 100 000 subscribers on youtube, it was a massive goal of mine, and I am working on a thank you video, which I think you will enjoy. On another note, being featured on Bungie’s community focus has also been a huge goal and if you would like to help, there is a Forum thread link below.

The Collapse: What Actually Happened?

Event Lore

The collapse?

I’m out in plain sight. Sky is torn open and there’s nothing and nobody left in this ruined world but me and the boiling shadow all around. Whatever it is hits me before I can level my gun. Doesn’t matter. Tendrils of pain crawl over my splayed fingers, my outstretched arms, my shoulders, my neck, my screaming mouth as it consumes. I’m being enveloped. Everything is wrong. Primordial. My systems go sideways. All but my sensors. It wants me to witness this, the world. It’s world now, suffocating in the Black poison. I collapse. We all collapse.

Welcome back Guardians, today I want to talk about the Collapse, and what happened during the Collapse. I have already made detailed videos about Rasputin’s involvement but I wanted to be more specific. It is something that has always bothered me and confused me, so I wanted to have a detailed look at any card that mentioned the Collapse.

Rise of Iron Lore

Event Lore

Game Informer article reveals new Destiny Lore

Every time she pulled the trigger, an enemy of the City died. Her keen eye, never missed her mark. Eight Iron Lords fell when sealing SIVA away and whilst most are familiar with Saladin’s survival, another Iron Lord may yet live.

Welcome back guardians, today I wanted to summarise any new lore that was released in the Game Informer article, podcasts and videos. I sifted through the current material available, with the assistance of AnonPig, (link to his twitter below) and extracted information that was more lore based. I do not believe this will have any major spoilers, however it will likely take the surprise out of some of the events or missions in Rise of Iron. So if you want everything to be a surprise in Rise of Iron then suggest leaving now.

As you may have guessed via the intro I will be covering the Iron Lord Efrideet. Other information that I will cover includes, information about the other Iron Lords, Thorn, Tyra Karn, Shiro-4, new fragments, the Raid, mentions of a rampaging werewolf, increased information on SIVA, the recycle factor of the Vex and the Iron Wolves. There is a lot of information here, so if you have heard it before feel free to skip to any section with the links on screen or the time stamps in the description.

Links to my twitch channel, where I stream destiny lore and my Twitter is in the description below, as well as links to the guardians who helped film this video. This is myelin games and I hope you enjoy this latest Destiny Lore episode.

The Traveler is Trapped!

Event Lore

Did the Cabal trap the Traveler?

Welcome back guardians, today we are having a closer look at images from the Destiny 2 trailer that show the traveler looking very different from vanilla Destiny. Specifically, I am referring to these intersecting lines, which are even more obvious in the close up of Zavala. When I lived streamed the lore discussion of the new trailer, someone actually said in chat that the Cabal have put a shield around the Traveler, unfortunately, I instantly dismissed this theory, until I recently looked closer at these images… and now I totally agree. I apologise to that person who suggested that idea, I think you were spot on.

I do think that the Cabal have “trapped” the Traveler, and this is how Ghual, The Red Legion leader has stripped Guardians of their power. If you have not read the Product description for Destiny 2  it reads,

“Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee.”

So this shield, enclosure, capsule surrounding the Traveler may be a Cabal technology used to strip us of our powers. Today we are going to talk about the potential consequence of being separated from the Traveler and the potential story opportunities for new Guardian abilities in Destiny 2, such as will we have to free the Traveler first to regain our abilities, or can we discover new abilities elsewhere?

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

Vex Guardians!

Mystery

Infected by the Vex

I have destroyed myself to do this. They have taken my Ghost. They are in my blood and brain. But now there is hope. I have made a wound in the Vault. I have pierced it and let in the Light. Bathe in it, and be cleansed. Look to it, and understand: From my own Light and from the thinking flesh of the Vex I made a shield. The shield is your deliverance. It will break the unbreakable. It will change your fate. Bind yourself to the shield. Bind yourself to me. And if you abandon your purpose, let the Vault consume you, as it consumed me.

Welcome back guardians. Today we are talking about Vex Guardians, Guardians who have been transformed by the vex. This lore actually dates all the way back to 2 years ago, where Artificis_Vix made a reddit post about the liquid Vex, however it is still extremely relevant and with the release of the Vault of Glass ornaments that transform your limbs into Vex constructs and the new Eris Morn grimoire card, it is more interesting than ever.

As usual, the artwork at the beginning of the video was created by Brandon McCamey, if you would like to pick up any of his work, I have left a link in the description where you can find poster versions of everything.

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