Osiris, Permanent Radiance

Character Lore

Osiris achieved a constant state of Radiance?

Open yourself to the Light. Glimpse, for a few rapturous moments, the truth beyond the powers you wield.

A Warlock in a state of Radiance threatens to slip beyond the bonds of the material, shrugging off physical harm, channeling a torrent of abilities. Some may learn to elevate nearby Guardians, gifting them with power.

Welcome back guardians, this is a follow up video to my Sunsinger video where I briefly mentioned how Osiris may have been able to achieve a constant state of radiance. I wanted to expand on this theory and this may allow Osiris to travel through time.

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

In my Sunsinger video I spoke about the general theme of Warlocks not just channelling the light to use as a weapon, but allowing themselves to be consumed by the Light, to be engulfed by the Light, in the Sunsinger’s case, specifically Solar energy or the Sun. I speculated that it was this profound connection with the Light that allows Sunsinger’s to by-pass their Ghost in order to self-revive.

One of the most interesting things about this idea of being so strongly connected to the Light is that you could become something more than a Guardian. The Radiance card reads,

Open yourself to the Light. Glimpse, for a few rapturous moments, the truth beyond the powers you wield.

A Warlock in a state of Radiance threatens to slip beyond the bonds of the material, shrugging off physical harm.

So, if you were a Warlock obsessed with the Vex, and you were trying to access the Vex gate system and understand the Vex’s control over time, having greater control over Radiance may be an extremely useful, as it allows you to slip beyond the bonds of the material.

Furthermore, in the Chamber of Night grimoire card, Ulan-Tan’s suggests that

“all Light remains connected across space and time”.

So if a Sunsinger in a state of Radiance is the closest we can get to being connected to the Light, being consumed by the Light, then maybe this would allow us to travel through space and time.

Ulan-Tan even actually supports this theory in the Sunsinger quest line which reads,

“The Sunsinger is proof that the Light is everywhere. The wings of Radiance allow a Guardian to fly beyond the veil. What further proof do you need, Speaker?” —Ulan-Tan

What does “beyond the veil” mean, well, there are two very specific grimoire cards that refer to the Veil, the first is the Coven which documents the queen’s techeuns planning the Awoken assault on the Dreadnaught, it reads,

“Only a defeat here, now. Not there, then.” Illyn wandered between the two sides of three. The amulet around her neck marked Illyn as the coven’s mother, granting her visions beyond the veil, places only the Queen could go.”

The second card that really provides the best definition of the Veil is Ghost Fragment: Future War Cult, this card describes Future War Cult experimenting with a device, the card reads,

“Twelve subjects have reported similar experiences. At 11:33 she reported the sensation we have called “The Opening Of The Veil.” The Device recorded temporal displacement of her consciousness to the order of six degrees. At seven she began screaming. Brainscans near-death. Removed from the Device at 11:34.

She believes without question that the Device granted her a vision of the future, and that it was one of utter Darkness. She thanked me for this enlightenment. She says it will make her stronger.”

So, if the opening of the veil, is just looking into our future, then when Ulan-Tan says Radiance allows us to fly beyond the veil, I speculate that that means to travel to our future. So now we have the Radiance card suggesting that Radiance allows you to slip beyond the bonds of material and Ulan-Tan suggesting that Radiance allows you to go beyond the Veil, which in my opinion is to time travel.

This brings us to our theory, maybe Osiris understood the potential of Radiance to slip beyond the bonds of the material and allow him to travel through time. Hence he aimed to acquire a constant state of Radiance. So, what evidence is there that supports Osiris being in a constant state of radiance.

The first is what I mentioned in the Sunsinger video, the Ghost Fragment: The Queen 2 grimoire card which is suspected to document Eris Morn and Osiris speaking with the Queen of the Reef reads,

“Your Grace,” said the man before her at the foot of the stairs. His voice was soft but strong. When he spoke the Hunter started to turn her head toward him, then flinched as if someone had shone a bright light into her eyes.

The fact that Eris flinches when she looks at Osiris may imply that he is emitting a blinding light that could be associated with radiance.

The second piece of evidence is from the Osiris grimoire card, which reads,

“I hear stories of Lord Shaxx meeting with fireteams of Warlocks who have no shadow and never blink.”

Could a group of Warlocks with no shadows, indicate Osiris’s followers who have also mastered this constant state of radiance, hence they leave no shadow?

Lastly, many of the teachings of Osiris that we see through the Parables of the Allspring could be seen as reaching this ascension state, this constant state of radiance.

Sun Current reads,

“He bathed in the sun’s light, and it burned away his fear, and his hope.” —Parables of the Allspring

Plate of the Exile

“Let the heat melt your body so your soul might flow with the river of time.” —Parables of the Allspring

Winged Sun Vestments

“Like a meteor burning until nothing is left but the idea of a Light.” —Parables of the Allspring

Watchers’ Boots

“Light burns. Light heals. Light blinds. Light reveals.” —Parables of the Allspring

And Winged Sun Greaves

“Feet alone cannot take us to where we’re going.” —Parables of the Allspring

This reference to feet not being able to take us to where we are going, matches very nicely to Ulan-tans quote “The wings of Radiance allow a Guardian to fly beyond the veil.”

What do you think Guardian, we will come face to face with Osiris and a team of time travelers in Destiny 2, glowing in a permanent state of Radiance?

That concludes this latest destiny lore episode episode, if you would like to support the channel and cannot think of a comment, leave the word, “Veil” to represent how Sunsingers can fly beyond the Veil and into our future. This is myelin games. Peace.
