Eris Morn: Some creatures of the Hive strain against the Will of Oryx. Alak-Hul the Darkblade is one such. Long ago he fomented rebellion against the King and attempted to take his mantle. Alak-Hul failed and now awaits the "mercy" of the Hive. Given the chance the Darkblade will step in to take Oryx's crown. We must not allow another prince to rise.

Mausoleum, Dreadnaught, Saturn's Moon

Eris Morn: The Darkblade suffers his judgement in the depths of the Hive prison. I'm feeding an energy marker to your Ghost. It will lead you to his call.

Eris Morn: I can sense a powerful incantation. Hive runes hold the far door shut.

Ghost: My scan say the runes draw energy from those towers. If you get me over there I can hack them and open the door.

Guardian successfully hacks the first battery

Ghost: The spell is getting weaker. Let's get to the other battery.

Ghost: We're on the right track. Alak-Hul's energy marker is getting stronger.

Eris: Find the Darkblade. Finish this.

Fireteam defeats Hive in the Hanging Crypts

Ghost: I think this is going well.

Eris Morn: Then you do not know what you face. The Darkblade is formidable. And left unchecked, a worthy successor to lead the Hive. Dawn has not come. It hasn't been dark enough yet.

Ghost: That's very encouraging.

Ghost: Eris, why did the Darkblade rise against Oryx?

Eris Morn: The Wizard Verok was his mate. He slew a legion of Thralls in her name. Marched on the King's throne, at the head of an army built of hate and pain.

Ghost: How...romantic.

— or —

Ghost: Eris, why does Oryx have a prison?

Eris Morn: "Prison" is the wrong term. He holds his victims, tortures them, then renders them down into chitin for his ships.

Ghost: Chitin, lovely.

Fireteam reaches the entrance to Alah-Hul's cell

Ghost: You first.

Eris Morn: Your fate lies below. Embrace it.

Ghost: Nothing left now but the drop.

Fireteam drops down into the cell

Eris Morn: Alak-Hul is near.

— or —

Eris Morn: Alak-Hul. He is hunting you.

— or —

Eris Morn: The Darkblade. I sense him.

Fireteam defeats Alak-Hul, the Darkblade

Eris Morn: Yes. May his dark soul go screaming into the pit between the stars. With none left to lead in Oryx's wake, the Taken will languish, decay. But they will not die away. You have given us time, time to recover... to bury the dead. And make ready for the next shadow on the horizon.

— or —

Eris Morn: Yes, May his dark soul go screaming into the pit between the stars. A pretender to the crown is dead. Know this, Guardian; Alak-Hul was there when we went down into the pit. What you have done, you have done in their names: Toland. Sai Mota. Eriana-3. Vell Tarlowe.

— or —

Eris Morn: Yes, may his dark soul go screaming into the pit between the stars. The creatures of the hive are treacherous. But they can still fall into infighting, to petty distractions of the flesh. (low laugh) That is why we must rise above, Guardian. It is the only way we will survive the long night.
