*'''[[Cayde-6|CAYDE-6]]''': Okay, you've got the crystal. All you have to do now is fill it with Crota's soul. The Hive are in the middle of some kind of funeral, so--
 
*'''[[Eris Morn|ERIS MORN]]''': Not a funeral. A death ceremony. Crota's essence is being prepared for the next realm.
 
*'''CAYDE''': Right. So when you get to this funeral, [[Oryx]] will be watching close. Use [[Rasputin]]'s cloak to slip past the Taken. Find Crota's soul, wrap it up, and get out.

''The Guardian is in The Stills and approaches the bridge into Crota's lair.''
+
''The Guardian finds themselves at the end of The Stills, approaching the bridge into Crota's lair.''
+
* '''GHOST:''' Where exactly are we headed?
*'''GHOST''': Where exactly are we headed?
+
* '''ERIS:''' When the Deathsingers begin their song, you'll know we are close.
*'''ERIS''': When the Deathsingers begin their song, you'll know we are close.
+
* '''CAYDE:''' What she's ''trying'' to say is that she doesn't know. Don't worry, I'll keep my ear to the ground.
*'''CAYDE''': What she's trying to say is that she doesn't know. Don't worry, I'll keep my ear to the ground.
+
* '''ERIS:''' And I will try not to ''step on his head.''
*'''ERIS''': And I will try not to step on his head.
+
''The bridge now complete, The Guardian makes their way across the blinding hallway of light.''
+
* '''CAYDE:''' ''Stay'' out of sight. We need you back alive. You have the frequency, Ghost?
''The Guardian makes their way across the bridge.''
+
* '''GHOST:''' And your... modifications. We'll be ready.
+
* '''ERIS:''' Then move quietly and unseen... like death.
*'''CAYDE''': Stay out of sight. We need you back alive. You have the frequency, Ghost?
+
* '''GHOST: '''(sighs)
*'''GHOST''': And your... modifications. We'll be ready.
+
''The Guardian reaches the Oversoul Throne, hidden away in a room.''
*'''ERIS''': Then move quietly and unseen. Like death.
+
* '''GHOST:''' Let's hope this works... cloaking.
*'''GHOST''': ''(sighs)''
+
''The Guardian's body disappears in a wisp of energy. At this point in the mission, the camera switches to third person view for the player.''
+
* '''GHOST:''' I can't see you. Can you see me?
''The Guardian reaches the [[Oversoul Throne]].''
+
''The Guardian walks outside, completely invisible. Unfortunately, the area is swarming with Hive hierarchy. The area is entirely silent out of respect for their fallen god, save for the thudding footsteps of [[Knight]]s and [[Ogre]]s patrolling the area. ''
+
* '''CAYDE:''' ''(speaking softly)'' Keep your distance. They can't see you, but they can still smell you. Eris can replace her ship—we can't replace you.
*'''GHOST''': Let's hope this works. Cloaking.
+
* '''ERIS:''' Cross the chasm. Enter their world.
+
''The Guardian notices a shrine on the near side of the bridge used to cross. A Tomb Husk sits nearby.''
''The Guardian's body becomes invisible.''
+
* '''GHOST''': (whispers) A tomb husk... Careful. We've still got to avoid them.
+
''The Guardian picks up the husk and, keeping a safe distance away, slips past the Ogres and activates the shrine, constructing the bridge. They make it across, finding even more Hive on the other side. Carefully avoiding their path, the Guardian reaches the door on the far end. It opens slowly, and with a deafening rumble.''
*'''GHOST''': I can't see you. Can you see me?
+
* '''GHOST:''' Do you think they heard that?
+
''The Guardian, now clear of Hive for the moment, is free to run through the large barren hallway leading to Crota's home, now his tomb.''
''The Guardian walks outside and approaches the Hive in the area.''
+
* '''ERIS:''' The Deathsingers! They are preparing Crota's soul for the next realm. Follow their cry. ''(pauses)'' It was just as this when I walked in the dark. Their wretched songs in the wind as [[Eriana-3|Eriana]] fell...
+
''The Guardian makes the final drop into the pit below.''
*'''CAYDE''': Keep your distance. They can't see you, but they can still smell you. Eris can replace her ship. We can't replace you.
+
* '''ERIS:''' Reach Crota's tomb and take what remains of his soul.
*'''ERIS''': Cross the chasm. Enter their world.
+
''The Guardian walks down the hallway, finding a large slab of stone leaning against the wall. They send the Ghost to investigate:''
+
* '''GHOST:''' The symbol of Crota... I don't know the derivation or its meaning. To me it says 'we're going the ''wrong way''<nowiki/>', but as usual, I'm just following you!
''The Guardian approaches a [[Tomb Husk]] in the room.''
+
''The Guardian walks out into the main area, where the final battle with Crota took place. Several Deathsingers are surrounding the area; this is the most heavily guarded room in the Hellmouth.''
+
* '''GHOST:''' There are a lot of tombs here—how do we find Crota's?
*'''GHOST''': A tomb husk.
+
* '''ERIS:''' You'll ''know'' it when you see it.
+
''The Guardian cautiously and carefully makes their way through as the Deathsingers commence their sermon. The Guardian finally makes it to Crota's tomb, soaking in a green smog. The Guardian is in the worst possible situation: four Deathsingers are within touching distance, and over a dozen Hive majors are surrounding them.''
''The Guardian picks up the tomb husk.''
+
* '''GHOST:''' I think we found it.
+
* '''ERIS:''' Now... let the crystal drink deep from Crota's death essence.
*'''GHOST''': Careful. We've still got to avoid them. I hope they can't see this thing.
+
''As the Guardian absorbs the fog, their body starts to glow, and the essence is seen flowing into their body.''
+
* '''GHOST:''' ''(whispers)'' It's working! How much do we need to pass as an Ascendant Hive?
''The Guardian activates the shrine with the tomb husk, constructing the bridge. They make it across and reach the door on the far end. It rumbles as it opens.''
+
* '''ERIS:''' Only a taste, but steal all you can.
+
''The Guardian's glow intensifies, until suddenly the camouflage veiling the Guardian disappears altogether, leaving them visible to the entire Hive guard. The Hive retreat and the room is quickly filled with Taken. The comms systems become heavily distorted as the Guardian runs.''
*'''GHOST''': You think they heard that?
+
* ''GHOST: Something's wrong! We're exposed! ''
+
* ''CAYDE: (urgently) Lock for transmat! '''Get out of there!'''''
''The Guardian heads through the hallway.''
+
* ''ERIS: (obsessively) '''We must have Crota's soul!'''''
+
* ''CAYDE: (adamantly) '''They've got enough!!''' Lock for transmat, Ghost!''
*'''ERIS''': The Deathsingers! They are preparing Crota's soul for the next realm. Follow their cry. It was just as this when I walked in the dark. Their wretched songs in the wind as [[Eriana-3|Eriana]] fell.
+
* ''GHOST: I can't! '''Everything''' is corrupted!! I can't connect... stay alive! We've got to make it back!''
+
''The Guardian is forced to defend themselves while the Ghost attempts to find a way out. Taken Thrall and Hobgoblins surround them, but the Guardian manages to defeat them. However, more Taken spawn in their place, now including Psions and Minotaurs. The Guardian struggles with the increased numbers, but eventually kills most of them. The next wave of Taken is wholly overwhelming; along with dozens of Taken reinforcements, two more Taken blights open to reveal [[Baxx, Hand of Oryx|Baxx]] and [[Primus Ta'aun|Ta'aun]], the Left and Right hand of Oryx. They open fire on the Guardian, easily weakening them within inches of their lives. Eris Morn's voice comes in clear--not through the Ghost's comms, but inside the Guardian's own head--she is speaking telepathically.''
''The Guardian drops into the throne room.''
+
* '''ERIS:''' ''Guardian!! '''COME... WITH... ME...!!'''''
+
''Eris quickly speaks an unknown incantation, echoing within the Guardian's head. A bright white flash obscures their vision. The Guardian finds themselves in the Oversoul Throne, completely removed from Crota's tomb and out of reach from the Taken; they are safe.''
*'''ERIS''': Reach Crota's tomb and take what remains of his soul.
 
 
''If the Guardian sends the Ghost to scan the large stone nearby:''
 
 
*'''GHOST''': The symbol of Crota. I don't know the derivation or its meaning. To me, it says, "we're going the wrong way," but as usual, I'm just following you.
 
 
''The Guardian walks out into the main area.''
 
 
*'''GHOST''': There are a lot of tombs here. How do we find Crota's?
 
*'''ERIS''': You'll know it when you see it.
 
 
''The Guardian makes their way to Crota's tomb, which is emitting a green fog and surrounded by Deathsingers, including [[Ir Halak]] and [[Ir Anûk]].''
 
 
*'''GHOST''': I think we've found it.
 
*'''ERIS''': Now let the crystal drink deep from Crota's death essence.
 
 
''The Guardian brings the crystal close to the tomb, allowing it to absorbs the fog.''
 
 
*'''GHOST''': It's working. How much do we need to pass as an Ascendant Hive?
 
*'''ERIS''': Only a taste, but steal all you can.
 
 
''The Guardian suddenly becomes visible. The Hive retreat and are quickly replaced by Taken reinforcements. The comms become heavily distorted.''
 
 
*'''GHOST''': Something's wrong! We're exposed!
 
*'''CAYDE''': Lock for transmat! Get out of there!
 
*'''ERIS''': We must have Crota's soul!
 
*'''CAYDE''': They've got enough! Lock for transmat, Ghost!
 
*'''GHOST''': I can't! Everything is corrupted! I can't connect. Stay alive! We've got to make it back!
 
 
''The Guardian defends against the Taken reinforcements. Eventually, [[Baxx]] and [[Ta'aun]] appear. After some time, Eris Morn shouts an incantation, which echoes in the Guardian's head:''
 
 
*'''ERIS''': Guardian! Come... with... me!
 
   
''The Guardian is safely teleported back to the outside of the Oversoul Throne.''
+
'''ERIS:''' ''(exhaustively)'' It was the best I could do with so little time...
   
*'''ERIS''': It was the best I could do with so little time.
+
'''GHOST:'''''(amazed)'' You pulled us out!
*'''GHOST''': You pulled us out!
 
*'''ERIS''': One of [[Toland]]'s tricks. there is nothing I fear more than the [[The Darkness|Dark]], but I will not lose another Guardian. You've imprisoned the last whisper of Crota's soul. It is left to you now. Find Oryx on the [[Dreadnaught]]. Destroy him.

''Mission ends.''
