Character Bio – Ikora Rey
The Curse of Osiris, the upcoming expansion for Destiny 2, focusses a lot on the character and actions of Osiris. This guy was awesome, as in the best Warlock in the Tower, but he was kicked out for his views and obsession over the Vex. Before that however, he trained the best Warlock in the Tower today, Ikora Rey.
Ikora’s knowledge has earned her the position of leader of the Vanguard, but she’s also incredibly knowledgable about al things in the Solar System. Before this she was a disciple of Osiris and was well know for being outspoken in her class.
In her early days she was known for her efficiency in the Crucible and her sheer will to survive against all odds. She was often being shot down only to be found or turn up weeks later having fought off all manner of aliens. Her survival skills come from her knowledge of all things, and this has gained her the respect of all Warlocks, with some even believing that she can turn Guardians into frogs.
As leader of the Vanguard her position is to analyse unconventional threats and create solutions for them. These threats are anything out of the ordinary such as the Darkness, or a giant Vex portal suddenly activating on Mercury. She uses an elite force of spies called The Hidden who act as her eyes and ears wherever needed. One of The Hidden is Eris Morn, a Guardian who many think of as mad and a person to avoid, but Ikora Rey listens to her and values her opinions.
After her retreat to Io as part of the Destiny 2 campaign she was sought out by us, the Guardians, and returned to help fight the Red Legion and kick them out of the Tower.
In The Curse of Osiris we’re going to see a new side of Ikora, one that’s desperate to see her old mentor again. Can you imagine seeing someone you respect that much being banished so far away that you’d never see them again? Ikora will be asking the Guardians to explore the activities of the Vex and find out what Osiris has been up to, potentially bringing him home to the Tower if everyone else is on board with him being there.
