    I get the image of some lucky Captain or hell even a Dreg getting a hit on Saint that kills him, then maybe a few hours or days pass and then the same Fallen see Saint walking to them. That would probably paralyze them with fear alone

    Moments like this are the reason I can't bring myself to kill the Eliksni anymore. Not even house salvation. I always try my best to avoid fighting them or just let them run away, because I don't want to be like the guardians in the lore who kill them without mercy.

  29. Metaphysicist

    Metaphysicist9 days ago

    I kill them without remorse, the remaining Housed of Eliksni are hostile and as long as they remain such they are to be fought and killed.

  30. Alex Miller

    Alex Miller9 days ago

    Like honestly, this cutscene and some of the lore (particularly that of the Survivor’s Epitaph) is just a tremendous representation of the horrors of war. Where one side sees a hero, the other sees a monster. Both Humanity and Eliksni have been locked in brutal conflict for centuries. Both sides have committed horrible atrocities in the name of victory, deterrence, and vengeance. No one’s hands are clean. Not Saint’s. Not Mithrax’s. Not even ours. This storyline deserves a fucking award. Not since ATLA has a story done such a good job of depicting war. Beautifully done. (Also, I just want to bring attention to the use of black and white in that cutscene. Saint is a warrior and hero of the Light, yet to the Eliksni he was a dark, monstrous figure. He was the only black figure in the scene too, showcasing him as the monster. Even his Ward of Dawn was still white, I believe representing the Eliksni’s continued faith and reverence for the Traveler and it’s power. They still viewed the Light as sacred, even though it was being used to destroy them. I love clever use of images, colors, etc to subtly drive a narrative point)

    @Zero Todona That would make the story more deeper, that's true. But I prefer it this way, as it makes it more immersive, and makes the world feel alive, like we're progressing with it rather than having an end and living out a finished story.

    Master Yasuke11 days ago

    The sad thing is that everyone just immediately assumes that all Fallen are bad. You guys are under the impression that there is such a thing as good vs evil in Destiny. Here is a big old history lesson for the lore. Guardians were WAY worse than the Fallen were before the Last City came about. While you are talking about the Fallen deserving Saint's wrath, what about those like Warlord Shaxx and Lord Saladin? Fallen were just like us before their Collapse, they are doing whatever they can to survive. We did the same thing but one upped the Fallen by killing our own, sacrificing our own, and subjugation our own. Even brought our own battles that killed our own. Is Saint justified in his actions against the Fallen? Sure, but is he fine with no judgment on his deeds to killing Fallen indiscriminately? No. See Saint died and we brought him back, I can see that something bad will happen to him before the end since we messed with time. Especially when we brought him back during a dangerous time. Everything is no longer white and black anymore, we cannot defeat the pyramid ships alone. I don't even know if we can or at least push them out of our system. Even so, we are with others who were in the same position as us. Either we unite or we die, it isn't easy to look past dark deeds. But we should remind ourselves that we play the game without thinking about who we are killing. And if they are like Mithraxx, considering that he and the Eliksni that he guided were afraid of us just for following them. Remember they fear us, we've already been humbled once by Ghaul. Don't let that power go to your head.

    "When we pursued it" Let me translate that for you: when we tried to commit Mass genocide against your entire species and destroy your city you had the audacity to fight back how evil! how cruel!

  112. Nathan Hunt

    Nathan Hunt10 days ago

    @The One3 Had the Whirlwind occurred on Sol rather than on Riis, humanity would have done exactly what the Eliksni did. You can’t reason that “they could have done anything else” when they were starving, desperate, and hopeless. If they knew there was any chance that the Traveler could take them back, they would do anything to get it - including violence.

  113. Nathan Hunt

    Nathan Hunt10 days ago

    @The One3 The “we” Misraaks was referring to were the Eliksni who pursued the Traveler to Sol, some of which never even set foot on Earth and thus did not partake in the atrocities committed during the Dark Age. Misraaks himself served the Awoken against the houses of Wolves and Devils. With all this in mind, what’s actually disingenuous is making it seem as though Misraaks and the rest of the Eliksni race were all either complicit or active in the Dark Age conflicts.

    @Islam Alzamareeh the warlords terrorized humanity more than the fallen? Yeah no the Battle of Twilight Gap alone....

    The One310 days ago

    @Islam Alzamareeh okay no you just can't do this. Didn't have to attack the city they could have done literally anything else. They could have I don't know said "hey guys could we stay here? we could help you out our people had a terrible event just like yours did and we should work together" Instead of you know Mass attempt at genocide on multiple occasions, you can't just brush that aside we're talking about the genocide of a species. a species that is already in danger. And your other point "of course they're going to commit Mass genocide to get what they think is theirs" Was that an actual point or like a self-aware joke? you realize how horrific that is right? I'm not saying it's bad writing it's not it's good motivation.... For villains
