Hall of Guardians, The Tower, The Last City, Earth
The Guardian approaches Cayde-6.
Cayde-6: Feel like taking a trip? I got a missing persons case. I sent a Nightstalker named Tevis to check out a Vex gate on Venus. He didn't make it back.
The Guardian heads to Venus.
Cayde-6: What does it mean to be a Hunter? I say, it's all about where you belong. The Warlocks have their libraries, Titans have their walls… but Hunters belong in the wilds. Out there, you wanna live? You better have a quick shot, or a sharp blade. A lot of us are loners. But that's not the only path. Some of us know the difference a Fireteam makes. Some of us… we touch the Void. Make it a part of us. And then we take a name… Nightstalker. Hunt from the shadows, pin them down, and never let them see you coming.
Campus 9, Ishtar Sink, Venus
The Guardian finds piles of destroyed Vex covered in Void energy.
Cayde-6: Tevis is our most experienced Nightstalker. We can't afford to lose him. Plus, y'know, he's an old friend. Owes me money.
Ghost: A Nightstalker's bow leaves behind very precise scarring. Fascinating.
The Guardian searches for Tevis.
Tevis: If anyone can hear me — I don't think I'm on Venus anymore. This looks an awful lot like the Black Garden.
Endless Steps, Ishtar Sink, Venus
Cayde-6: Tevis? That you?
Tevis: Cayde? Good that I can't smell your breath. Listen, I stepped through the gate. My Ghost is still on the other side.
Cayde-6: Well, he's in a great mood. See if you can find his Ghost. If Tevis is trapped in the Black Garden, he'll need you.
The Guardian finds a massive Vex Gate and is ambushed by the Vex. The Guardian defeats multiple waves of Vex.
Cayde-6: That was a lot of shooting. You all right?
Ghost: We're fine. I'm picking up the origin point of the broadcast: it's a dead Ghost.
Cayde-6: Right. Let's hope Tevis is still kicking.
The Guardian finds the dead Ghost. Ghost examines it.
Cayde-6: Tevis, if you can hear us, we're getting telemetry through your Ghost.
Tevis: The Vex are attacking quicker and quicker. I got no Ghost, and a bow that's short on Light.
Ghost: We can use the Gate in the Valley of Kings to get him out. Let's go!
