One of one of the best issues about Destiny 2’s Beyond Light enlargement is how a lot concrete story it has delivered. Destiny’s story has at all times been unwieldy, largely as a result of there’s numerous it–but most of it happened within the distant previous, someplace exterior of what is truly within the recreation. In Beyond Light, Bungie tied collectively a number of dangling lore threads, filling in gaps we have been questioning about for a protracted, very long time. Names like Clovis Bray lastly have faces, and characters we have been questioning about from Destiny 1, just like the Exo Stranger, have lastly defined their actions.Every so usually, Bungie collects a few of these lore entries collectively into e book kind, as Destiny Grimoire Anthologies. The books middle on particular themes, just like the affect of the Darkness or the historical past of the Fallen, and every one has been related to no matter tales Destiny 2 was telling on the time of their launch. Grimoire Anthology Vol. 3, which was launched proper across the launch of Beyond Light, consists of lore related to the Exos, Rasputin, and Clovis Bray–and provides some clues about what we’d nonetheless study on Europa.Beyond Light’s backstory is all concerning the start of the Exo race–robots into which human consciousnesses have been downloaded. That’s a significant a part of the third Grimoire Anthology e book as nicely, with the e book compiling lore entries concerning the Exos’ unusual relationship with the Deep Stone Crypt. The e book ends with what seems like a significant clue as to what we are able to anticipate from the story on Europa because it continues to unfold in coming seasons. The final portion of the e book focuses on Destiny’s most well-known Exo, the previous Hunter Vanguard and the character who was murdered to kick off the Forsaken enlargement: Cayde-6.The Cayde lore entries within the Grimoire Anthology compile some details about his previous. One explains that, again when he was nonetheless totally human, he owed a giant debt to Clovis Bray, the genius industrialist whose firm was accountable for creating Exos (in addition to different issues, like Rasputin, the large synthetic intelligence that managed all of the photo voltaic techniques defensive weaponry). When Bray got here to gather, the human who would change into Cayde anticipated some dire penalties, however he was as a substitute provided a chance to affix the Exo program.Cayde’s historical past from there’s a bit spotty, partly due to the truth that Exos usually get their recollections wiped to maintain their human minds functioning nicely inside their robotic our bodies. We know he labored for Clovis Bray as an Exo bodyguard and soldier for some time, and he appears to have misplaced observe of his human past–including his household. As any individual who was a part of the Exo program and labored for Clovis Bray, he seemingly bought fairly near the corporate through the Golden Age.The related half for what could be subsequent on Europa comes from some story factors uncovered after Cayde-6’s loss of life within the Forsaken enlargement. After he was killed, gamers might depart on a mission to seek out a number of stashes of substances Cayde hid on Titan. In every one was a recorded message Cayde created for whoever killed him; since he did not know who that could be, he recorded a bunch of messages for a bunch of individuals, together with his mates.The message that issues is the one Cayde left for the individuals who constructed the Deep Stone Crypt, the ability the place Exos have been first created and the scene of Beyond Light’s raid. It’s additionally the final entry within the e book.”This one’s for the minds behind the Deep Stone Crypt,” Cayde stated within the recording. “You think just ’cause you made me, you can unmake me? Hey, I understand. [If] I were you, I wouldn’t want people knowing what I did either. Guess you better hope I didn’t tell anyone about the Crypt. Or about the, uh, what was it? Oh yeah… Long Slow Whisper. ‘Cause if I did, that would be real bad for you, huh? I may be dead, but I guarantee you ain’t heard the last of me.”The message itself raises some questions on what Cayde may need been threatening to share, and who particularly he was threatening. We’ve uncovered quite a bit on Europa, however the phrasing of Cayde’s message, the reference to the Long Slow Whisper, and Cayde’s closing line counsel there’s extra to uncover.Having discovered the Crypt itself and different secrets and techniques hidden on Europa, now we have a good sense of a few of the issues the creators of the Exos may need wished to maintain folks from figuring out. First, there’s the truth that Exos will not be simply robots–they’re made potential by way of using each Darkness power and Vex know-how. Lore entries counsel that Exos have unusual goals at any time when they’re reset that always embody them preventing (and killing) a military composed of everybody they’ve ever met. Pair these horrifying visions with the truth that Exos have components of the Darkness and the Vex baked into them from the second they’re constructed, and also you may abruptly change into a bit distrustful of your robotic Guardian buddies.Second, Clovis Bray did not simply have an epiphany and begin constructing Exos. The means of discovering a method to get human minds to simply accept their new robotic our bodies was a protracted and troublesome one; early within the course of, Exos would fall to insanity and actually tear themselves aside. Exploring Europa reveals the brutal experiments Bray and his employees dedicated on their take a look at topics to attempt to discover a answer to the Exo drawback, which included injecting them with Vex radiolarian fluid and grafting robotic components onto their human our bodies. It was all fairly horrific.But since we already learn about these issues, they do not appear more likely to be what Cayde is referring to when he threatens to disclose details about the Deep Stone Crypt. We uncovered Clovis Bray’s crimes and the inside workings of the Exos simply by wandering round on Europa, so that you’d assume that the insider data Cayde possessed could be one thing even deeper and extra nefarious.”Long Slow Whisper” is the title of the symbol gamers who accomplished the Deep Stone Crypt raid on Day One, and it might confer with the affect of the Darkness on individuals who get too near it (we all know it was influencing Clovis Bray and the researchers who found the pyramid on the Moon, which is the centerpiece of the Shadowkeep enlargement). But that is such an specific phrase that it seems like Bungie’s writers would have made an even bigger word of calling consideration to it, and its particular hyperlink to Cayde and the Forsaken story. So perhaps the Long Slow Whisper is one thing extra, one thing we have not but realized about.The different query this all raises is one among who Cayde is referring to in his message. We know a few of the folks behind the Deep Stone Crypt at this level. They embody Clovis Bray, who downloaded himself into an Exo physique and ultimately turned Banshee-44, the Gunsmith. Another copy of Clovis’s authentic character persists because the AI accountable for the Europa analysis facility. Elsie Bray, the Exo Stranger, was additionally a key determine in operating the Europa facility, however Clovis stored her at the hours of darkness concerning the inside workings of the Exo program, and when she realized the reality, she tried to cease him–she’d be tremendous with Cayde publicizing no matter he knew. These folks do not actually look like the oldsters Cayde could be threatening. The AI head was kind of dormant earlier than Guardians arrived on Europa; Banshee does not bear in mind being Clovis and has no ties to that life; and Elsie hasn’t proven up since Destiny 1’s vanilla marketing campaign. So who was Cayde threatening to reveal?There’s some extra proof that there could be extra story about Cayde on the best way as we proceed in Destiny 2’s story previous Beyond Light. Recent occasions within the recreation have been closely associated to Cayde’s story in Forsaken, bringing the murdered Vanguard again to the forefront in gamers’ minds. Running concurrently with the discharge of Beyond Light was the Season of the Hunt, wherein gamers labored intently with a personality named the Crow to seek out enemies corrupted by a brand new Hive villain, Xivu Arath. The Crow is definitely Uldren Sov, the man who murdered Cayde and who gamers killed in revenge on the finish of the Forsaken story marketing campaign. Soon after his loss of life, Uldren was revived by a Ghost named Glint, turning him right into a Guardian who calls himself the Crow–which means the Crow has no reminiscence of the person he was once, or the circumstances of his personal loss of life.That made the occasions of the Season of the Hunt fairly charged as we bought to know the Crow and the individual he had change into. We labored intently with the Crow, the assassin of Cayde-6 who we, in flip, murdered. In what appears to be the ultimate story mission of the season, although, the participant character accepts the Crow as a Guardian, successfully forgiving him for his previous crimes and acknowledging that he is a brand new individual. But whereas we realized quite a bit concerning the Crow, there is a key piece of knowledge the Crow does not have about us: that the participant character is the one who killed him, in Cayde’s title.All that’s to say that the consequences of Cayde’s loss of life are nonetheless being felt, and that the character–as an Exo, as somebody who labored for Clovis Bray, as a member of the Vanguard, and as a memory–is related to all the pieces that is occurring in Destiny proper now. Hell, even the ultimate boss of the Deep Stone Crypt raid, Taniks, has main ties to Cayde. Among his stashes, Cayde left a recording to be performed within the occasion that Taniks was the one who lastly killed him. The pair had a long-standing historical past of making an attempt to kill one another, and it was Taniks who murdered Andal Brask, one among Cayde’s greatest mates and his Hunter Vanguard predecessor.Since the discharge of Beyond Light, we destroyed a personality who could be Cayde’s biggest nemesis and witnessed the redemption of the man who murdered him, whereas additionally studying concerning the individuals who helped create Cayde within the first place.So though Cayde has been useless for 2 years now, he nonetheless looms giant on the panorama of Destiny 2’s storytelling, and there appears to be enterprise left unfinished as pertains to his character. After all, there’s nonetheless no Hunter Vanguard to exchange Cayde, and we have spent the previous few months wandering the halls of Clovis Bray’s Eventide settlement and the Deep Stone Crypt. Cayde stated that, even useless, the oldsters behind the Deep Stone Crypt hadn’t heard the final of him, and I’ve a sense we have not both.
