Destiny Wiki

The Ahamkara are a species of dragon-like creatures, supposedly hunted to extinction by Guardians.[1] Ahamkara bones are very powerful[1] and are used in many pieces of Guardian weaponry, including Young Ahamkara's Spine, Skull of Dire Ahamkara, and Claws of Ahamkara. So far, only one Ahamkara has physically appeared in Destiny; Riven of a Thousand Voices, who appeared as the main antagonist of Forsaken, as well as the final boss of the Last Wish raid.


Different body parts of a few Ahamkara indivuduals have been used to make some Guardian equipment. This includes the gauntlets Young Ahamkara's Spine, Claws of Ahamkara and Sealed Ahamkara Grasps, the helmet Skull of Dire Ahamkara, the leg armor Bones of Eao and the fusion rifle One Thousand Voices.
