The Red War is the most tragic event in the Destiny universe to happen since we’ve known it. The Red Legion took out all surveillance the Tower had to protect itself and attacked in force. This attack took the power of the Traveller and separated it completely from all Guardians, until we fond our Light again. The Red War is really interesting because it’s a key part of Destiny history that we as players have been part of, and it’ll always be remembered as one of the great events of the universe.
Zavalla was a key part of saving many lives during the attack on the Tower. He plays a large part in the Homecoming mission, and once Guardians have rescued him he plays a huge role in the end game of the Red War. It’s inspiring to see the Vanguard come back together again after being so brutally ripped apart, and Zavalla is at the centre of that. He even goes as far as learning the mistakes the Tower and its walls posed to those inside them as well as outside.
Gaul is the monster behind the Red Legion, and the spark in the Red War. This guy is pretty much pure evil, but he’s not without a small sense of honour about him. You see when Gaul is met with the choice to simply take the power of the Traveller he hesitates because the Speaker tells him the Traveller must choose him. Now that’s not true, but he listens to the notion and longs to be chosen.
What this shows us about Gaul is that he’s not simply some power hungry Cabal leader, risen from the streets of some hellish Cabal planet where he was abandoned as a pup. He’s a character who longs for approval, who longs to be chosen and is desperate for the Traveller to choose him for its Light.
This last piece of wallpaper is just an iconic representation of what Destiny 2 is all about. The Red War logo is a constant symbol of oppression as you play through the campaign, and when it finally comes to an end there’s something so satisfying about seeing that symbol again, knowing that you beat the Red Legion. It’s sad to see the little Ghost, no Light to power it, sat there underneath. This is what Gaul wanted for all Guardians and Ghosts, thankfully that didn’t happen and we at least got ourselves back together. Can you imaging a Destiny game without your Ghost?
