At the beginning of the taken king cinematic, after the ghosts monologue we hear Mara Sov speaking. Her words were 'I remember everything about the day I was born. I still bear the scars. The Awoken are MY FAMILY NOW. And I am their queen. We fought to keep our beautiful creation safe, and now this beast has come claiming to be king. Mara Sov bows to no one.' She's then surrounded by her guard to summon Axion Bolts to attack the Dreadnaught. Could it be, that Eris is her mother? She was born in the depths of the hive and maybe the spawn of Crota, or Oryx or one of the many hive priests? The hive are known for their destruction, if she is part hive - the power she summoned to destroy the Dreadnaught rivals that of an Ultra like the Pride of Oryx - Malok. She talks about her birth, and how she still bears the scars. Was she born out of a hive ritual performed on Eris? Could that be the reason why her eyes were taken? This is all speculative since we don't have much history on the Queen or the time Eris spent surrounded by the hive. I'm also interested in the three guards surrounding Mara Sov during her attack and Oryxs retaliation, they had a similar look to Exalted hive wizards. Does Savathun have a place in all of this? And will Destiny 2 clear up the relationship between Eris and Mara, along with what really happened in the pit. And if Savathun is involved, are Eris and the Queen pawns in her game for being freed from the depth of Crotas pit? I'd like to hear some of your thoughts, again this is all speculative, but her monologue in the taken king opening sequence has a lot behind it, if only a few words.
i think she is talking to eris at the intro, she calls her "mysterious friend" and she mentions "ever since u escaped that pit".
