What happened to these guys?
Destiny 2 is a great loot-and-shoot game that’s been out for a long time. It is the follow-up to the first Destiny game, and it has a huge world and a lot of story. Both games have ruled the looter-shooter market, which has led other game companies to try to make a “Destiny killer” but fail.
With all the changes made to the sequel, like the controversial seasonal model, subclasses 3.0, and the addition of weapon crafting, it’s easy to forget about characters who have suddenly disappeared or haven’t shown themselves.
When the Guardians were worried about a mystery fleet in the system in Season of Arrivals, we didn’t know what they were up to. This fleet put itself in the area around four worlds. A whole season was spent trying to figure out why they did what they did.
In Beyond Light’s opening cutscene, the Guardians found out that they had failed to save those worlds and their people, like Brother Vance on Mercury. Aside from the history books that say Brother Vance and the Cult of Osiris fled to the Infinite Forest, it’s not clear if he still lives. Will Bungie bring him back to Lightfall to help the Witness get there? Good question.
Asher Mir, a scientist, lived on Io. He did not let being inside a building get in the way of his study. He set up camp behind a small hill near a large open area. In Season of Arrivals, Asher tried to shoot at the pyramid fleet, but it didn’t work. After that didn’t work, he tried other things. But when nothing seemed to work, he thought they must be looking for secrets about the Vex. Asher made a promise to keep these secrets safe.
Asher came up with a plan to do this, and he went into the Pyramidion to carry it out. He saw several split-line differences and pulled one down to him. The problem is that the lore books don’t say if he lived or died, and we’ve been wondering about that ever since Beyond Light came out.
On giant, we talked to Commander Sloane, who was a human giant. Near the end of the Season of Arrivals, Sloane wouldn’t let Titan fall to the pyramids, so she stayed there to fight the Darkness until it took over the world. We tried one last time to get her to come with us, but she said no. Sloane had taken technology from Savathun to use in an epic last fight against the Darkness.
Sloane’s efforts were good, but it’s not clear what will happen to her in the end since none of the planets engulfed by the Darkness have a clear reason.
In the past of Destiny, the famous Ana Bray was in a serious relationship. Even though it isn’t said directly in the game, her partner can be seen in the Destiny comic books. Camrin was her name, and she was not lucky enough to get the Light. Camrin knew Ana well enough to know what she wanted, so she sent her partner on a mission to find Rasputin, who was a warlord. So, Ana went to Mars.
Camrin’s name is never said out loud in the game, so you might not know who she is. The only way to figure out that she exists is to figure out what the speech lines mean. When she was waiting for Ana Bray on Mars, she would say things like, “If she were here, this would be so much easier.” No one knew who “she” was at the time, but the comics show that it was probably her late partner Camrin, who died before Ana went to Mars.
Maybe you’ve heard of Andal Brask. In the show, he was the hunter Vanguard before Cayde-6. Back then, the “Vanguard Dare” was made up by Andal Brask and Cayde-6. Whoever of them was able to kill Taniks first got to pass on the open Vanguard post. Cayde-6 seemed to have killed the Elksni, so Andal Brask was left in the job.
Andal Brask was no longer the hunter Vanguard before Destiny started. This makes you wonder what happened to him. It turns out that Cayde-6 never actually killed Taniks. Because of this, the Elksni set out to kill Andal. Taniks was successful in the end. Poor Andal.
The leader of the New Monarchy group on the Tower was Executor Hideo. He was there as the first representative for the Crucible. Hideo sold gear and emblems that could be used in playlist events, but he didn’t dress like the Guardians.
He was on the Tower from the start of the Red War until the Season of the Splicer, so you might remember him. After that, the three faction leaders questioned the Vanguard’s authority because of the Darkness. This caused the New Monarchy faction to leave.
Arach Jalaal was the leader of the Dead Orbit faction. He was a lot like the boss of the New Monarchy. Unlike Hideo, who didn’t care about any of the other Guardians, Jalaal hated everyone who wasn’t human, even though he was Awoken.
When Beyond Light started, the three group leaders tried to convince other Guardians to fight for a firm belief in the Light instead of clinging to the Darkness powers of Stasis. The three groups failed, so the Dead Orbit group left the Tower to find a place where Darkness hadn’t spread.
Before Beyond Light came out, there were a lot of worlds, strikes, and raids in Destiny 2 that you could visit and take over. When the Tower was still called the Traveller, there was a place to start your trip on the EDZ. There was a woman named Tyra Karn among the NPCs that were found.
Before she set up the Cryptarchy, Tyra Karn was in charge of the Iron Lords’ history. During Spacebar Clicker game, she went to The Farm, which was a place where new people could meet. When Beyond Light came out with a New Light story line, the Farm stopped being useful and went away. No one knows what will happen to Tyra and the other people at the Farm.
During the Red War, Dominus Ghaul, The Consul, and The Speaker are in a famous scenario. The Speaker was asked by Ghaul how he got the Light from the Traveler. When The Speaker didn’t have any good answers, Ghaul and The Consul argued about what was most important to them. This caused The Consul to move and The Speaker to fall to the ground.
Unless you found a specific scannable item on the Tower, you might not know if The Speaker died during this argument. It says he’s “gone,” but it doesn’t say he’s dead. Since figures have come back from the dead before, we don’t really know what’s going on. Also, nobody has talked about the Speaker since the Season of the Splicer, so is he really gone?
Before Solar 3.0, every hunter would often see a picture of Shin Malphur on the specialty screen. But you might have forgotten about him because he is known by many names, such as Dredgen Vale and The Gunslinger.
Because we’ve never seen Shin, you might not have made the link between the Gunslinger subclass picture and Shin at the time. Shin is talked about a lot in the lore books, but his main goal is to keep Guardians from giving in to the Darkness. But now that we have both, will he try to come after us during Lightfall?
