H.E.L.M., The Last City, Earth
The Guardian approaches the Splicer Servitor in the Eliksni Wing, after listening to Lakshmi's message.
Mithrax: I have felt your conflicts with the Vex from here, and your victories. This area is a crossroads — many threads connect this City to the Vex. They seek to use their simulation to drain the Light from this place — bend it to their will. Just as you seek to disrupt their network. But while you fight for survival, their motive are… unclear. The network connection cannot be broken without destroying your city. Both are bound now, and one must fall for the other to survive. But there is hope. Every Vex you destroy sends ripples across this false-dark sky. I do not know how many must fall to end this simulation they have created, but the data they guard hides the answer. We will study it together — this is my word in the Light.
