Crota, Son of Oryx was an ascendant Hive prince whom the Hive worshiped as a god. He was the son of Oryx, brother of Nokris, and father of Hashladun, Besurith, Voshyr and Kinox. Crota resided in the Oversoul Throne. He is the final boss of the raid Crota's End, where he is killed by the Guardian.
It was during this battle that Eris Morn and a fireteam of five other Guardians; Eriana-3, Vell Tarlowe, Sai Mota, Toland and Omar Agah, made an attempt on his life, but Eris was the only one to survive. With all that she learned, she helped another fireteam raid his lair underneath the Hellmouth and kill him.
After Crota's death, his father, Oryx, traveled to the solar system in order to exact revenge on the Guardians.
Four years after his defeat at the hands of the Young Wolf, Crota would return on the Moon as a Nightmare.
