For instance, since we learnt about the space zombies, I thought that the 'Dead Orbit' fit quite well with them. Now that I'm looking at it, it seems that the enemies fit into the factions quite well, I'll explain down below. New Monarchy - The Fallen (You just said why this works) Dead Orbit - Space Zombies (It fits) FWC - Vex (Time traveling robots) FWC being the "Future" war cult. Osiris - Cabal (Sand eaters, Osiris being egyptian god, egypt being a sandy place... best I could for this one.) Seven Seraphs - Don't know...

[quote]So....from this little excerpt from Urk in the mail sack has revealed something else about the Destiny universe "I fell in love with the Fallen all the way back in 2009. Partly because there’s just something wonderful about the idea of a nomadic race of once noble houses now scattered to the solar winds. Partly because there’s something primordial and instantly terrifying about squaring off against an unpredictable Fallen Captain, his tattered crimson cape draped over a set of four splayed and angular arms that bristle with sleek firepower" [/quote] To me it seems that they fit in the role of the new monarchy. They wear crimson, they used to be part of a noble house but aren't any more, and seem to have a ranked military system. What do you think? Who's to say that the factions only represent the guardians of the city?
