The Origins and Agenda of Mara Sov part 4

[quote][b]Verse 4:8 — The partition of death[b] One day Oryx decided to grow new wings. While he wrestled with his worm, he came upon his twin daughters dying in a wound between places. “What are you doing, my daughters?” he asked. He was afraid that Ir Halak and Ir Anûk were trying to go into the Deep, where only the Tablets of Ruin allowed Oryx to go. “We are dying, father,” they said. “As many times as we can manage.” “That’s adorably precocious.” Oryx shook out his new wings. “But why?” “We propose a method by which Ascendant souls can be detached and integrated into a tautological and autonomous thanatosphere, which we tentatively term an oversoul. Oversouls can be stored in a throne world as a mechanism of enhanced death resilience. As a side effect, new refinements to our Deathsong may be achieved, moving us closer to a generally effective paracausal death impulse.” Oryx brandished his sword. “Speak the Royal Tongue, or I’ll pin you up for Eir to eat.” “If we can separate our deaths from ourselves, and hide them, we will be hard to kill.” Oryx went to his son, Crota. “Go keep an eye on your sisters,” he said. “'You can learn cunning from them.” But while Oryx traveled to observe the Deep destroy an ancient fortress world, Crota conspired with his sisters to learn their secrets. “I too will experiment with a wound,” he said. With his sword Crota cut open a new wound, into a new space. In here he thought he might obtain a secret power. Out of this wound came machines called Vex. They invaded Oryx’s throne world.[/quote][quote][b]Verse 4:9 — open your eye : go into it[/b] The Vex clattered around, constructing large problems. At first their constructions were deranged, because they didn’t understand the sword logic, which defined all rules in Oryx’s throne world. The geometry perplexed them. “I’ll cut them apart,” Crota said. But just then, the Vex ritual-of-better-thoughts manifested a Mind called Quria, Blade Transform. Quria deduced the sword logic. I have to kill everything, Quria resolved. Then I will be powerful. Crota’s gate began to emit warrior Vex, huge and brassy. He leapt forward to fight them, but they blinked away. After they fled from Crota, they killed two thousand of Oryx’s Acolytes and ten thousand of his Thrall. Soon they had established themselves as powers in this world, by right of slaughter. “Come forth, sister wizards,” called Ir Halak. “We need you.” Ir Anûk pulled a sword star out of the sky. Together the wizards charged it with killing power and made an annihilator totem, which they used to smash the Vex. “Close the wound, brother Crota,” Anûk ordered. “We will find a cunning way to destroy them, but only after they stop constructing problems on us.” But Quria had instanced itself to the other side of the gate, and built a holdfast to keep the way open. Quria’s objective was to exploit the paracausal physics of Oryx’s throne to become divine. It organized a series of test invasions. For a hundred years of local time the siblings fought the Vex. When the Vex came into the sword world, they were inevitably annihilated, but when the Hive went into the Vex world, they lost too much of their power to win. “Father’s going to eat our souls,” Halak sighed. Quria captured some worm larvae and began experimenting with them. Soon Quria, Blade Transform manifested religious tactics. By directing worship at the worms, Quria learned it could alter reality with mild ontopathogenic effects. Being an efficient machine, Quria manufactured a priesthood and ordered all its subminds to believe in worship. Then it set about abducting and killing dangerous organisms so it could bootstrap itself to Hive godhood. For some Vex reason, Quria never attempted to introduce worm larvae into its mind fluid. Savathûn was laughing, because she had tricked Crota into cutting that place. This drew the attention of the Worm our God. ORYX, called Eir. SET YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER.[/quote] So what we have here is… a very cunning woman. One who knew of the Vex, and tricked Crota just to spite her brother. She loves him, just as much as she wants to kill him. But looking closer in these cards we see a few very important things. [quote]But while Oryx traveled to observe the Deep destroy an ancient fortress world, Crota conspired with his sisters to learn their secrets. “I too will experiment with a wound,” he said. With his sword Crota cut open a new wound, into a new space. In here he thought he might obtain a secret power. Out of this wound came machines called Vex. They invaded Oryx’s throne world.[/quote] Here we see Crota cutting a “wound”, a hole in space-time, to allow the Vex to enter Oryx’s Throne World. [quote]For a hundred years of local time the siblings fought the Vex.

A pocket universe where they simply exist, it was from here, thanks to Crota.That Quria actually has subminds who he commanded to “believe in worship” sound familiar? Black Garden? Sol Progeny? and lastly that Savathûn was the real cause of this. So what’s the relevance of the Vex in this? Well, we go right back to the Exo Stranger’s first real request. She sends us to destroy the Black Heart, which is in the Black Garden, which we get the location of from… Mara and Uldren Sov. There’s also the card The Aftermath. [quote][b]”Do not fear, brother. This was the only choice I had.” The sound of her voice ripped him from sleep. He jumped up; his ship was still contained in its protective sphere. He tried to retract the shield, but it was locked to its initiation time. He couldn’t remember activating it. Then he remembered the battle. That blast. What that ship fired was ancient, not bound to anything the Origin Libraries even sought to describe. He tried to calm down. He thought of her, searching for her pull. He couldn’t find it, but he was not calm. She always told him she would always be there behind the calm. All he could hear were echoes of that sound. It began as soon as they hit the ring plane, ringing in the old glimmer of his long-buried self. Before she showed him who he was—in the before and the after. The Techeuns should’ve known what the Dreadnaught could do. Must’ve known. Did they not feel what he felt? Hear what he heard? And that damn Ketch, it wasn’t protected. They had to know that. All to deploy the Harbingers. They barely got a foothold before the weapon was fired. He thought of Petra and how overwhelmed she must be, forced to hold her post, and watch her people perish. He tried to calm himself again, forcing long breaths. He realized where he was: Mars. Athabasca. The Candor Isles. He hadn’t been here in so long, not since he found the Black Garden. The countdown to the shield’s deactivation pulsed. He tried again, to home in on her, to find if she truly gave herself for this battle. He felt close to something, a hum of starlight, then shield deactivation broke his focus. He climbed out and saw the damage to his ship, and the truths of the armada's devastation sunk in. He turned in despair to find hundreds of his Crow drones, deployed on Mars long ago, circling his ship, waiting. “Welcome back, Master.” The one closest to him spoke first, and the others followed, a wave of salutations echoed throughout the dry sea. And with that hope returned. “Begin repairs on the ship immediately. Something has gone missing and you will help me find it.”[/quote] Uldren survived, and not only survived, but survived a long crash from the Rings of Saturn to Mars. Do you know how far that is? I sure as hell don’t, but he survived it! And it’s far! I know that! But within this card is a little nugget of knowledge. [quote]He tried to calm himself again, forcing long breaths. He realized where he was: Mars. Athabasca. The Candor Isles. He hadn’t been here in so long, not since he found the Black Garden[/quote] Uldren found the Black Garden, a feat that might seem simple and bland, “It’s got a giant Vex Gate, how could you miss it?” But before our intervention that gate was the only physical thing that even hinted at the Black Garden, until our intervention it was literally locked out of time and space. It existed on no known map of the universe, until we went in there and tethered it back into reality it was actually removed from reality. So I ask you, how did he find it?
