Season of the Seraph

Disbelief in osiris

Acting on Osiris's vision of a city on Neptune, multiple scouting parties are dispatched, and nothing is found. Osiris's condition is interrogated by Ikora to try and determine his physical and mental soundness. Osiris feels dejected as this vision is all he has to show from his capture by Savathun, and nobody believes in him anymore.

A Desperate play

Osiris seeks out Ana Bray to confide in her how he languishes in people's distrust in him and has come to her with a request and a plan. If there is anyone in the entire solar system who could legitimize his visions of Neptune, it was Rasputin, whom was nearly lost in the return of the Black Fleet. To see him restored to life, Osiris suggests that they beseech the Clovis Bray AI for assistance. Whom better to rebuild the Warmind, than his original creator?

Extraction Protocol: Introduction


Following the rescue of Clovis Bray AI from the combined forces of Xivu'Arath and Eramis, the Guardian, Ana Bray, and Osiris have a plan. Rasputin cannot be rebuilt with only the code Ana Bray recovered from his mindlab, he will need supplemental data from his remaining subminds around the Sol system. The Guardian leads these heists into the mindlabs of Malahayati and Charlemange, as well as retrieving an AI Kernel from beneath Europa's surface, but it's still not enough to return the Warmind.

More Than a Weapon I: Speak to Mara Sov

Seraph Station

While efforts continue to be made for the restoration of the Warmind, in order for him to reconnect with his Warsat network and safeguard it from Xivu'Arath's forces, the Guardian ventures out into space. In Geosynchronous orbit over the earth lay the Seraph Station, a nerve center for the entire Warmind Network. The Guardian faces down the forces of the Witness lead by Eramis to install a virus aboard the satellite. Now, nobody but Rasputin may access the Warsat network.

More Than a Weapon

Spire of the Watcher

An old outpost on Mars is reactivated by the temporal disturbances across the surface. The Sol Divisive invade the spire under the guidance of Eramis. Osiris wishes to investigate. Ikora sends the Guardian to go in and uncover what can be discovered. It is revealed that this base was a joint operation by the Clovis Bray Corporation and Ishtar collective. The Guardian succeeds in stopping the Vex from using the spire to imprison Rasputin's subminds. Osiris is pleased to discover that this facility contains knowledge that can shine new lights on his vision of Neptune. Shortly thereafter, Ana Bray leads an expedition into the Spire to learn about the AUGURMIND Soteria's past. TM-Earp Custom Suit

Ares Desperado

Rasputin lives again

Rasputin's code has yet to re-build itself, and we've run out of AI-COM locations to provide new data for the engram. Ana Bray comes to the Guardian with a plan. She has learned that Lord Felwinter was created from the body of Rasputin's lost son. With access to his Ghost, Felspring, Rasputin awakens. He reveals the truth of Clovis Bray's designs for the Warmind, that Rasputin was built to obliterate the Traveler so that he may replace her as a machine god of Clovis Bray's design. His deceit revealed, the Clovis AI is once more confined to the surface of Europa.

More Than a Weapon IV: Speak to Ana Bray

Assured destruction

It is revealed what plans Xivu'Arath holds for the Warsat network. In order to summon forth herself and her armies to the Sol system, she requires an act of devastation so terrible. Mara Sov posits that no matter who uses the Warsat network, Rasputin or Xivu'Arath, the destruction caused will open the gateway for Xivu'Arath to invade the system. Rasputin must now only hold the Warsat network, without using it to destroy the forces of the Witness amassing over the Earth. For however long until something else can be done.


Rasputin has begun to formulate a plan for how to safeguard humanity, without firing the Warsat network. A plan which will see the people of earth forever safe from obliteration on high. But before this can happen, Rasputin sends the Guardian to retrieve hidden files within the cosmodrome, air-gapped from his network to ensure their security.


The worst has come to pass. Eramis has managed to bypass the virus preventing her from controlling the Warsat network, and has enacted the ABHORRENT IMPERATIVE under the Witness's watchful eyes. The Warsat network begins moving into a firing position over the Traveler, who, for the first time in centuries, moves out of the sky of the Last City to protect humanity. Rasputin's plan is revealed, Aurora Sacrifice. Once Rasputin is reconnected to the Warsat Network, Ana Bray must fully and permanently delete his AI. As Eramis fires the Warsats, Ana Bray ends the life of Rasputin. The Traveler is saved from the Warsat network.

A final gift

The information Rasputin wanted retrieved from the Cosmodrome contained within it the proof Osiris sought. The existence of Nefele Stronghold, and the secret it hides. The Veil, an object of immense paracausal power, tied to the Traveler.


The battle over Earth

The Black Fleet surrounds the Traveler over the Earth, nothing, not even the Terraforming power of the Light, can be done to stop the Witness as it approaches. Touching the mind of the Traveler, the Witness learns the location of the Veil on Neptune, and dispatches his newly empowered Disiple, Calus. The Guardian and Osiris give chase as the Typhon Imperator moves to descend upon Neptune.

Neomuna discovered

After crash landing from one of the fleet ships of the Shadow Legion, the Guardian and Osiris discover a previously unknown city of humanity, Neomuna. As well, they meet the protectors of Neomuna, the Cloudstriders Rohan and Nimbus. Something strange is happening to the Guardian and Osiris on Neomuna, as they begin to observe weird Strands in the air around them. This power will prove necessary to stop Calus and secure the Veil.

The Battle at home

While Calus himself may be on Neptune, unearthing the Veil from its resting place. Queen Mara Sov of the Awoken has come to the aid of the City, to rescue prisoners captured by the Shadow Legion within the Pyramids of the Black Fleet. She knights Devrim Kay, Mithrax, and the Guardians as her Queensguard. With her power, the Guardians may breach the Black Fleet through the Ascendant plane.

The fight continues

On Neomuna, the Guardian works to uncover the power of Strand and stop Calus from reaching the Veil. An artifact known as the Radial Mast is destroyed at the cost of the life of Cloudstrider Rohan. The Witness is displeased with his disciple's sloth and demands the Veil secured immediately...

We just lost

Calus makes a final push against the forces of Empress Caiatl and the Guardian. He descends from his flagship to personally secure the Veil after dispatching his daughter Caiatl. Deep beneath the city of Neomuna, the Guardian faces down Calus. With the newly mastered power of Strand, Calus; Disciple of the Witness, is slain. Victory is short-lived as it is revealed the Witness has once more possessed the Guardian's Ghost, and uses them to connect with the Veil. Above the Earth's surface, the Witness carves a gateway before the Traveler, and leaves to parts unknown. All across the system, it is felt, the being known as the Traveler is now gone. Where once her heart was felt, now only the gateway remains.

Root of Nightmares.

Following the loss of the Traveler, within the CloudArk of Neomuna, nightmares terrorize the Neomuni from the returned disciple of the Witness, Nezarec; The Final God of Pain. The Guardian follows these whispers aboard the terraformed pyramid over earth, where the Witness once stood. Within those halls, it is discovered that Nezarec had been revived, inadvertently, by the Traveler's terraforming Light. The Guardian slays the disciple, ending their hold over the Neomuni.
