Seraph Bunker: The Moon, Ocean of Storms, The Moon

The Guardian investigates Rasputin's hologram of Felwinter and Felspring.

Rasputin: [Rasputin speaks]

Ana Bray: He's telling a story. In a time of great prosperity, a tyrant king sent his son to live among the people and learn their ways.

Rasputin: [Rasputin speaks]

Ana Bray: He did so for many years, until a great calamity befell the kingdom.

Rasputin: [Rasputin speaks]

Ana Bray: In the aftermath, the tyrant's son was changed.

The Guardian heads deeper into the bunker. Rasputin displays another hologram of Felwinter being attacked by a Frame.

Rasputin: [Rasputin speaks]

Ana Bray: The tyrant's son turned away from his father, and became a warrior.

Rasputin: [Rasputin speaks]

Ana Bray: The tyrant chased his son across fields and mountains and oceans.

Rasputin: [Rasputin speaks]

Ana Bray: He said, "If I can't have my son, then no one shall."

Rasputin displays another hologram of Felwinter being attacked by SIVA nanites.

Rasputin: [Rasputin speaks]

Ana Bray: In the end, the tyrant used his son's love of the people against him.

Rasputin: [Rasputin speaks]

Ana Bray: He promised him a miraculous technology that could rebuild the kingdom.

Rasputin: [Rasputin speaks]

Ana Bray: When his son came to claim it, he unleashed a plague upon him. His son was destroyed.

Rasputin: [Rasputin speaks]

Ana Bray: And the tyrant looked upon his tyranny and wept.

A hidden entrance opens. The Guardian heads deeper into the bunker.

Ana Bray: Is Rasputin… is he talking about himself? I think the tyrant's son…

Ana Bray's comm channel cuts out. The Guardians reaches a secret room and finds a sarcophagus containing a hologram of Felwinter and his shotgun. The Guardian examines the shotgun and receives Felwinter's Lie.

Felwinter's Lie

Ghost uses a comm station to reestablish contact with Ana Bray.

Ana Bray: Guardian? Can you read me? There you are. Comms cut out completely. You're in a really old part of the bunker. The signal's terrible. This place is like a time capsule. Where are we?

Ghost scans the Seraph casing.

Ana Bray: This looks like the casing of an old safety AI. But marked with Rasputin's symbol. These transcripts suggest his original code was for… a sort of emergency response system from pre-Golden Age space stations. Checking oxygen levels, fuel, that kind of thing. Clovis Bray took a safety AI and turned it into an interplanetary defense system. With sentience. And Rasputin kept all this. Almost like a scrapbook of his past. A way to remember his roots. And he showed it to us. When did he learn to be so sentimental? Wish Zavala could see this.
