Cayde-6: Yello, Cayde speaking. Oh, hang on, someone left a note here. "EDZ forest. Taken energy, question mark. Red Legion… Brian." … Who's Brian?
Ikora: Red Legion Psions. Guardian, we've heard disturbing reports from your area. They tell of Cabal with new powers.
Ghost: That sounds ominous. We'll keep an eye out for any… unusual psionic energy nearby.
The Guardian kills a specially shielded Centurion by killing the Psions to remove the impenetrable shield.
Ghost: Red Legion Psions are bad enough. But if they really have Taken powers?
Cayde-6: Since when did Cabal and Taken start sharing toys, anyway?
Ikora: We can figure out the connection later. For now, we must uncover the source of this energy.
The Guardian kills another specially shielded Centurion by killing the Psions to remove the impenetrable shield.
Ghost: No good. Taken energy readings are increasing. I bet it's spreading to Psions all over the area.
Ikora: If that's true, it could bring a plague of shadow beyond our imagining.
Cayde-6: Ikora, you're freaking them out.
The Guardian kills a third specially shielded Centurion by killing the Psions to remove the impenetrable shield.
Ghost: Got it! I've pulled location data from that Centurion. But we have to go… into the forest.
Cayde-6: You sure about that buddy? Don't wanna get, you know, eaten by a creepy Taken shadow tree.
Ikora: Cayde, what exactly happened to you on Nessus?
The Guardian heads into the Dark Forest
Cayde-6: They get eaten yet?
Ikora: No, they did not "get eaten yet". But use caution. We don't know what's waiting in that forest.
Cayde-6: My glimmer's on something big and Taken.
Ikora: That may be the safest bet you've made in years.
The Dark Forest, EDZ
Ghost: That portal connects to the forest. The Psions found a way to force it open!
Cayde-6: Well, it was nice knowing you.
The Guardian goes through the portal and finds more Psions and Centurions
Ghost: Did you see that? He got stunned when we took out his Psion.
Ikora: Severing their bond must cause a backlash to the host. Interesting.
Cayde-6: Am I the only one who has no idea what any of you are talking about?
The Guardian passes through another Taken portal looking for the Psionic source.
Ghost: Okay, there are a lot more Cabal than I was expecting.
Cayde-6: They may not like you trespassing in their secret magic fort.
The Guardian discovers Prusk, The Unequaled Maul
Ghost: Big Taken. Taken Cabal! Big… Taken Cabal!
Ikora: A Colossus. Of course. You must destroy it.
Ghost: Working on it.
The Guardian focuses fire on the Corrupted Bonded Psions to bring down Prusk's shield to kill him.
Ghost: Whew! We did it. They're all gone.
Cayde-6: That'll set the Legion back a ways. Serve's 'em right for messing with things they don't understand.
Ikora: Which is your area of expertise. As for you Guardian; well done. If that brute had gotten loose with the Psions, there may have been no stopping it.
Cayde-6: And then I couldn't have collected on that bet! Big and Taken. Told you.
