The Traveler reminds me of the story of prometheus (not sure if I spelled that right) and how he stole fire from the gods and gave it to humanity. As punishment, he was chained to a rock and vultures ate at him every day. The traveler went around giving many civilizations golden ages of their own, but the darkness would constantly snuff those civilizations out as if they were not meant to have it in the first place. Sometimes I think the traveler isn't evil, but what if it came from a civilization that isn't for the advancement of any other civilization? What if the traveler is a Rouge agent of its kind? (especially since Xür said the traveler has a dark mirror) Forgive me if my lore is incorrect. Feel free to correct me.
Hey that's a really great analogy! I hadn't even considered that comparison. Youre right, [i]he is[/i] kinda like Prometheus. Even down to the punishment part in a sense. Thank you for sharing :-)
Not a problem. Always up for a good lore conversation ☺
