Eris Morn Leaves

Eris Morn Leaves

Character Lore

She stopped, and beneath the gauze on her face all three eyes closed. For a moment she allowed herself to feel the dark tears that flowed, unending, down her face. The eyes reopened, and her strength blazed in the darkness.

“I must find a new path through the night. The Hive are vast, and ancient. A power from far beyond our realm. If we are ever truly to face them, ever truly to put an end to their hate, I must step beyond the safety of the City.”

Welcome back guardians, today once again, we are covering one of the new grimoire cards released with the Age of Triumph, Ghost Fragment: Eris Morn. It has been a busy week covering all of the new Lore released with Age of Triumph, which includes a video on Dredgen yor’s identity, Fallen Allies and if you have you know, a spare hour, a detailed lore analysis on the new trailer. I hope you have been enjoying the more frequent uploads.

Brandon McCamey provided the artwork for this video, be sure to check out his youtube channel as he just released another 3D mobile wallpaper for Destiny 2! I will make this the first link in the description.

Also stay tuned to twitch, as on Saturday I will be doing a 20 hour live stream to say thank you for all of the support over the last 6 months, and I am also celebrating being accepted as a PhD student.

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

The new grimoire cards with the Age of Triumph have not disappointed and I believe many provide clues for Destiny 2’s story. Ghost Fragment: Eris Morn is no exception to this and has some big implications for the future involvement of the Hive.

The card describes Eris Morn at a medical bay within the Tower. An awoken guardian rests upon a bed and appears to be closely monitored by medical equipment. The card reads,

“The Awoken man lay upon the bed like a broken thing. Machines monitored his every twitch, every aspect of his physical status. The steady, quiet blip of his heartbeat was the dominant sound in the room.”

You may ask yourself, why is a guardian attached to all this medical equipment, Guardians don’t need medical care, their ghost would just revive them. Has he lost his Ghost… no his Ghost is also within the room, however the man has been infected by the Vex and his ghost has been infected too. The card reads,

“Her smile died as her gaze slid to his side. His Warlock garb had been stripped from his body, and she could see his pale blue chest as it rose and fell in the bed. His arm. His arm was gone.

In its place was a thing. The point where mechanicals knit with flesh was ghastly to behold, but the design was unmistakable to any Guardian who’d been in the field: Asher Mir’s arm was that of a Vex construct.

Her eyes flicked to the ghost at the window. It too, was transformed. The unmistakable outline of Vex technology encrusting and penetrating the small warden’s shell. That red, staring eye…”

So yes… there have introduced some lore for the Vault of Glass ornaments that literally change your limbs into Vex constructs. Stay tuned, I am going to cover this Vex “infection” within a different video. Anyway, you likely noticed that the name of this Awoken man is Asher Mir. Eris Morn describes him as an “old friend” and a “kindred spirit”. Unfortunately, this name is not mentioned anywhere else within the grimoire cards, however Eris does refer to him as a Gensym Scribe. A gensym scribe is actually mentioned within the grimoire cards, or at least within the item descriptions, the Warlock bond Harlequin Pendulum reads,

“A curious device, sought after by the Gensym Scribes.”

I am not too sure what exactly this means, however he is described as a scribed, so I assume he copies documents, or transcribes documents, and I assume this work related in some way to the Vex, considered he has been infected. I would not be surprised if he was also somehow linked to the Hive, considering Eris Morn considers him a kindred spirit.

Asher Mir remains motionless in the bed and Eris says,

““Soon I will take my leave of this”—she put her hands up, to take in the med bay, the City, the Tower, Earth—“lie.”

It continues,

“She placed a gloved hand on the back of his blue, flesh-and-bone hand. “I wish we could have spoken, you and I, one last time. But my story here is done. I have avenged those I lost. I must find…”

She stopped, and beneath the gauze on her face all three eyes closed. For a moment she allowed herself to feel the dark tears that flowed, unending, down her face. The eyes reopened, and her strength blazed in the darkness.

“I must find a new path through the night. The Hive are vast, and ancient. A power from far beyond our realm. If we are ever truly to face them, ever truly to put an end to their hate, I must step beyond the safety of the City.”

The card then ends with,

“With those words, and a gathered locus of power, she was gone.

The room returned to stillness. The blip of the Awoken man’s heart echoed from the machines. And the Ghost stared into the night, its red eye never blinking.”

Obviously this card is based in the future because Eris is still within the Tower. So I assume that this card is referencing Destiny 2. I also assume that this must happen sometime between the conclusion of Destiny 1 and the start of Destiny 2… assuming that Destiny 2 starts with the City under siege. IN the new trailer Eris is no where to be seen, so I assume she has left the city prior to the cabal attack. She leaves because she believes that the Hive are still a threat,

“The Hive are vast and ancient. A power from far beyond our realm. If we are ever truly to face them, every truly to put an end to their hate, I must step beyond the safety of the City.”

I am sure most of you have already guessed what she is talking about, I assume Eris Morn is speaking about Oryx’s sisters, Savathun and Xivu Arath. In the Books Of Sorrow Oryx has two sisters Savathun and Xivu Arath, whilst they were not as powerful as Oryx, they were still extremely powerful. The were last seen in Verse 5:4 the gift mast. The card reads,

“Then sayeth Savathûn, “Siblings, listen, we must part ways a while, so that we may grow different.” She flies her war-moons into the black hole. Her throne becomes distant.

Sayeth Xivu Arath, “King Oryx, you take up too much space, your power constrains too many choices. I must go away from you.” She flies her war-moons away into the night. Her throne is barred shut.

Then Oryx was alone. He spent a while in thought, and those thoughts are recorded here.”

These sisters are still out there somewhere. Out of the two, I would say that Savathun is the greatest threat, she is the cunning sister, she is the one who spawned Malok to poison Oryx’s tribute system which is what he depended on to feed his worm. I believe that the item description of the Dreadfang is the words of Savathun it reads,

“Kingly brother, I thank you for the gift of your failure. The sword logic demands a pinnacle.”

I believe this item description is meant to be placed immediately following Oryx’s defeat at the hands of guardians. Whilst I do think it is Savathun saying these words, it could also be Xivu Arath as she too would refer to Oryx as her kingly brother. However in my opinion, Savathun has always been the closest to toppling Oryx. Yes, if you are not familiar with Hive culture, they kill each other out of love and so yes, Savathun was trying to take the throne.

So I believe that Eris has decided to leave the Tower so that she can discover the location and plans of Oryx’s sisters. How is she going to do this? Well, I also think there is a clue in this grimoire card, it says, “The Hive are vast and ancient. A power from far beyond our realm”, who do we know that is currently within the Hive realm gathering intelligence… yep, Toland the Shattered.

I have said it before and I will say it again, all of these pathways and storylines will eventually merge. Remember that the last we saw of Toland he was shouting Osiris’s name from the Hive Overworld and Osiris is connected with the Vex, now I believe Eris has set off to find Toland and gather intelligence on Oryx’s sisters. As you can see, going into Destiny 2 these plots are beginning to merge.

I wrote this prior to the Destiny 2 trailer reveal and I have now just seen the DLC images… which feature Osiris and Rasputin symbols only provides further proof that these storylines are going to come together. Toland in my opinion is our link to the Osiris video.

That concludes this latest destiny lore episode. If you would like to support the channel, leave the phrase, “Bye Eris!”, to farewell Eris Morn, survivor of mare imbrium, survivor of the hellmouth, a guardian who has sacrificed everything and now continues to defend the City by pursing the Hive.

As usual, it has been a pleasure, this is myelin games. Peace.
