What Culture/Religion Should The Darkness Be Based On?
For those of you who don’t know, every enemy faction in Destiny is based on real life ancient civilizations, religions and historical figures.
Fallen = Pirates
Hive = Ancient Europe/Dark Age Mythology
Vex = Ancient Greece Mythology
Cabal = Roman Empire
That is why some units of each faction are made and designed to have some reflection of what they are based on.
Hive Knights have Swords to reflect real Knight weaponry
Cabal Phalanxes have giant shields that reference a Roman tactic where a group of foot soldiers with shields huddle up to make a wall
Since the Darkness is coming soon, I’ve been wondering what they could be based on.
Personally, I’m hoping for Egyptian because the creatures and figures in that culture are more interesting.
I would love to see some sort of serpent creature
(more specifically, an Apep: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apep)
implemented into the game.
But, if you feel like some other mythological creature is more deserving, feel free to share.
Edit: Changed Cabal to Roman Empire from Holy Roman Empire because I have been corrected because I’m not a History person. Sorry for the inconvenience!
