According to a HOW mission description, there was once a Fallen House Of Rain. Judging by the name, maybe they were against violence, being pacifists and politicians, while other Houses being murderers and scavengers.
Perhaps... I envisioned the House of Ruin to be a collapsed Fallen House, hostile to any and all outsiders, and struggling to make a comeback. They have pratically no infastructure, save for a few Skiffs and Pikes.
Hey, Warshark. The disaster was called the Whirlwind, not the Hurricane. And it was the Fallens version of the collapse. The Traveller, or as they put it, The Great Machine, left their homeworld, and took the Light with it. The following disaster forced all Houses to flee the world in the huge Ketches. House of Rain was the only House who stayed and fought the Darkness when it came, and they were wiped out.
Wait, so that means that the Fallen were at some point, at peace with the Traveller? If so, we shouldnt be restoring the Traveller to its former glory, since when its finished healing, it could just leave us, like it left the Fallen.
There is alot of theories about this. What I think is that the Fallens backstory ties in with the original story, when the Traveller and the Speaker was supposed to be evil. Also, note that the lower parts of the Traveller is damaged, almost like if it had tried to escape, but was stopped by something in the City.
House of Thunder = House of Storms (Sorry, but I could not resist.)
House of Ether = Sounds interesting.
House of Hawks = House of Kings
House of Iron = This sounds interesting, but I think the reason of the Iron Walker to exist is that there once was a House of Iron, but it became weak and the remains merged with outcasts from other Houses, creating the Exiles. Another theory is that it might be an attempt by the Exiles to mock the Iron Lords of Earth. The Iron Walker could also belong to a group of Fallen mercenaries that works for the Exiles, under the cover of House of Iron (or something like that).

It was the whirlwind, not hurricane. It's the same thing that happened on earth, (The Collapse) which was caused by the Darkness. Humans and the Fallen were attacked by the Darkness.
A deadly Fallen house that rarely makes contact with guardians. Members are highly trained in the arts of stealth and hand-to-hand combat. This house prefers to fight with Shock Blades, but uses Wire Rifles frequently as well. Full military might and houses' full population unknown, although it is thought by the Vanguard that the full force of the house is not entirely inside the system.
House of Chains:
House color: Orange
This Fallen house is believed to enslave entire skiff crews of other Fallen houses to use as infantry instead of using the few troops they possess.
