H.E.L.M., The Last City, Earth
The Guardian approaches the Splicer Servitor in the Eliksni Wing.
Mithrax: Guardian, I greet you in the Light. It is I, Misraaks… or "Mithrax," as your people say. I speak to you through a Servitor we liberated from the House of Salvation. It fuels our camp now, turning raw matter into the Ether we need to survive. I will use it to study the Paradrome Cube you recovered from the Vex. In this way, it will provide for us both. We are settling into your City. You may have seen the work of the House of Light Scribe, Eido, my daughter. She has been creating a chronicle of our journey… but there will be time for that later. This city holds great scholars and warriors. Ikora, Osiris, Lakshmi-2, even… the Saint. They have agreed to aid in your fight against the machines. And I will be your guide. I am a Sacred Splicer, one who can touch the Light rippling through the Vex networks… For the Light is all: the wind through the grass and the motion of galaxies. In this way, I can see into the Vex domain. But you… [sighs] Your abilities might grow beyond mine. I have prepared something for you: a Splicer Gauntlet, the first made for a non-Eliksni. The Ether it pulls from defeated foes will let you override the Vex signals. Push back and enter the machine domain, as you did on Europa. Bring me data from within, and together, we will discover its secrets. Fight bravely. Free your people from this Endless Night.
