Quest: Legends Lost - Not Even the Darkness

Name: Quest: Not Even the Darkness, Legends Lost
Recorded: 2017.12.18


++ The Lighthouse, Mercury

Ghost: Yes! I have a reading on Saint-14’s location. Hold on, we’re coming for you.
Brother Vance: Bring him back to us, Guardian. Saint-14 is a primary source of the early Osiris years. He will be able to settle some… let’s call them “differences of opinion in which one side is wrong.”
Ghost: We’ll get right on that, Vance…

++ Infinite Forest, Mercury

Ghost: If Saint-14 has been lost all this time, do you think he’s OK?
Sagira: Nothing could stop that old Exo. Probably lecturing a Vex? Titan lectures – long speeches, occasional punching.
Ghost: Should be fine.

++ Simulant Future, Infinite Forest

Ghost: This place looks inviting.
Sagira: Oh. Yeah. You missed our first trip here. Vex are quite the decorators, aren’t they?

** The Guardian heads towards the signal’s location.

Ghost: There! The signal is coming from beyond that gate.

** The Guardian finds a conflux. Ghost attempts to scan the conflux but before being able to scan it, the conflux disappears.

Ghost: And it moved. Definitely a temporal disruption.

** The Guardian finds the conflux, but it disappears before Ghost can scan it.

Osiris: If Saint-14 was threatened, he would attack. And he would not have known how easy it is to be cast adrift in these… realities.
Ghost: Then we’ll find him and bring him home.

** Several confluxes appear in front of the gate. Hagios, Reverent Mind appears near the confluxes.

Ghost: A Minotaur. Are they trying to keep us out, or him in?
Sagira: Both? Take out the Mind, take down the gate. It’s true in pretty much every reality.

** The Guardian defeats Hagios, Reverent Mind.

Ghost: Got him!

** The Guardian finds the conflux and Ghost is finally able to scan it. The gate opens. The Guardian walks through the gate into the stronghold.

Ghost: What happened…? Vex. Thousands of them.

** The Guardian approaches Saint-14’s body.

Ghost: Saint-14’s Light… it’s gone.
Osiris: Rest in peace, my friend.
Sagira: Osiris… I’m so sorry.
Ghost: I… I think we should leave him here. It looks like the Infinite Forest laid him to rest. Built him a… memorial. Did the Vex learn to respect him?

// NOTE If the Guardian doesn’t immediately recover Saint-14’s personal effects.
Ghost: Saint-14 must have been here for years. Decades. He ran out of ammo, and just… kept fighting.

** The Guardian recovers Saint-14’s personal effects.

Ghost: I don’t think I ever told you this, but Saint-14 was one of the first Guardians I ever met, even before I found you. I always hoped you’d turn out like him. I wasn’t disappointed. You were a good friend, Saint. Goodbye.

++ The Lighthouse, Mercury

Brother Vance: That encryption pattern… let me examine it! Yes… yes! This relic you found – it once belonged to Saint-14! It has power. But not power enough to save the mighty Titan. Lost to the Vex. Alone in the Infinite Forest. We really do need each other. Guardian and Ghost. The Followers and Osiris. In any case. It is not our charge to keep relics such as these. It is yours now. Use this as he would have.


Hearing about this made me so happy. Something from the grimoire making it into the game like this is something Bungie should do more.
