Ada: "This place is not meant for Guardians." Guardian: *Pulls small item encased in plastic out of nowhere in complete silence* Ada: *Completely cucks and accepts it* Feels very forced. All they had to do was make it so it was something done out of necessity and not inherently anti-guardian. Instead they went the "Dark and brooding" route that I'm pretty sure is going to feed into that "Destiny 3:Ow the Edge" leak.
She doesn’t -blam!- with guardians because a light barer killed her mom 800 years ago during the collapse. Yes, guardians started popping up at the as the darkness started closing in. She accepted his presence because of the token. Similar to how we needed the awoken talisman to have access to where we would not usually be allowed to go. If you paid attention to her dialog after accepting the quest she specifically ponders going against her and the armories founders by allowing guardians to enter. But she needed to restart and find the gorges that were lost and stolen during the red war.
Thanks for the lore dump my dude, not like it changes much of anything whatsoever and could have been done in boundless other ways that didn't involve a contextually meaningless visit to Jabba the Hut for an item with no importance.
