Nokris: You are a child reaching toward a flame. The Taken Queen would not have you burnt. Pledge your allegiance and be reborn.

The Guardian defeats Nokris, Supplicant to Savathûn.
Eris Morn: Nokris is an abomination, his name stricken from the World's Grave. You've done well to purge his stain from this failing court.
Ghost: Why would Savathûn work with him?
Eris Morn: With? Nokris is an exploited outcast, Little Light. A Necromancer. Though I'm sure the "Taken Queen" saw value in his craft: death rituals to buck the Worm's game. I dare not wonder how she meant to wield that knowledge.
Ghost: We shouldn't dwell on it, you know. He's not coming back from that.
Eris Morn: Good riddance. Savathûn's haze has diminished considerably, though not completely.
Ghost: She's still out there. Hiding.
Eris Morn: Then I hope she saw what became of her brood. Hold still. I will fetch you.
The Guardian is teleported to the Pyramid hovering over the Cradle and witnesses a display of a Pyramid surrounded by four factions: the Guardians, the Cabal, the Fallen, and the Hive. The Darkness speaks to the Guardian through Ghost.
Ghost: Don't you see? This is as we once said. In Light, there is only weakness. Only failure. Only death. But where the Light takes, the Dark gives. No longer will you be a pawn. No longer will you watch the lives of those you care for be lost. Remember, in Darkness, there is only strength. Only victory. Only life. Ancient power awaits you on Europa.
An Ascendant Portal appears and the Guardian returns to the Tree of Silver Wings. The Guardian approaches Eris Morn and the Seed of Silver Wings.
Eris Morn: This transmission can be translated as "contact." Not physical. More ethereal. Influential. It is conjugated here as an action with a singular subject but innumerable objects. Guardian… what if we are not the only ones to whom the Darkness speaks?
