H.E.L.M., The Last City, Earth
The Guardian approaches the holoprojector in the Eliksni Wing, and receives a secure communication from Lakshmi-2.
Lakshmi-2: Hmm… when I requisitioned this transmitter, I was told the H.E.L.M. would be a secure location. I suppose this will have to do. Greetings, Guardian. I am Lakshmi-2, of the Future War Cult. And I am here to offer my assistance… because you need it quite badly. The Future War Cult has long used Vex-derived technology to see into the future. I won't bore you with an explanation of mind-forking. Suffice to say, we understand its dangers and use the device responsibly. I have glimpsed our future, Guardian. And what I saw was chilling. Skies dark with smoke. Shouting. Gunfire. And in the center of it all, standing in our City… A group of Fallen. The same Fallen I saw earlier. Ikora listened to my report, but she chose not to hear it — the Vanguard would rather protect its image than its people! And so, I will handle things myself. We can change this future; stop it from happening. While I monitor your progress against the Vex and assist where I am able, I will observe these Fallen. If they begin to act against us, well… When I foresaw the Red War, they laughed… until Ghaul bound the Traveler. This time, I will not whisper my warnings. I will not be polite. I look forward to working with you, Guardian. Together, we can protect our City from all who would wish it harm.
