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.
