Ocean of Storms, Moon
Variks: Taniks has no House. He kneels before no banner, owes allegiance to no Kell. He is a murderer, and very good at what he does.
I have been tracking him since Wolves broke their chains, yes? Now Taniks works for Wolf pack…but not for long.
Fireteam arrive at the Temple of Crota
Variks: Taniks has been sent to plunder the Hive. Your job just as simple. Avenge the dead. Stop him from stealing the Dark.
Fireteam proceed through the Temple, fighting Hive & Fallen
Variks: Watch yourself. Taniks is no common mercenary. He fights to fulfil a contract and hone his combat skill for…fun.
Fireteam proceeds to Dusk Warren
Variks: Lift field distortion! Ketch just above you.
Fireteam surrounded by Fallen, Taniks appears
Variks: Taniks has called you out, Guardian. You are challenged, in the ways of old.
Fireteam board Ketch
Variks: Taniks is jamming our comms. Fight well, Guardian. Fight for honour.
Fireteam fight Fallen in Traitor's Ketch
Wolf Walker destroyed
Variks: Notorious mercenary dead. No small matter. You will be rewarded treasure from the Queen. And my respect, as well.
