Taniks is a mercenary among the Fallen, and is not directly affiliated with any one House, instead offering his services to the highest bidder. He is responsible for the liberation of Aksor from the Prison of Elders, as well as the murder of Andal Brask, the Hunter Vanguard preceding Cayde-6.
Events of The Dawning Edit
Two years later, during the SIVA Crisis, the Devil Splicers resurrected Taniks using SIVA. Taniks, now Taniks Perfected, and his mercenary crew join the Devil Splicers, once again using his old Ketch as a base of operations. Zavala and Ikora Rey task a Fireteam of Guardians with defeating him once again.
