    I can seem to remember several things, I'll follow them up off of memory or websites - this may range from other games to real life folklore, movies, TV, anime, etc. Personally I am not suprised by these findings, adding in real world elements to this game makes it much stronger. The subject of Wolves reaches far prepare thy self for a essay.... I once heard that in a explosion of light a shadow is cast perhaps it is The Darkness though that quote may be totally unrelated. I also found it very odd that The Darkness is basically described like Sithis from The Elder Scrolls games & it has also been considered that pure Darkness is the ultimate evil worse then say something like The Devil, something extremely ancient. Now that you mention Wolf I even looked at Okami (No one ever said game developers can't be inspired by other games) & plot twist Okami saves the world from "Darkness" which obviously traces back to real life lore. Also I read a brief mention of a "Celestral Envoy" perhaps this is something like The Guardians. Now then leading from Okami's japanese lore take to Japan's anime Here is a great anime I highly recommend btw - from the anime Wolf's Rain. Their is a paradise (The Last City?) only wolves can find & they must find paradise before the next red moon or all the human race plus wolves die, also stated in it is the belief that humans may have been derived from wolves. During the anime the wolves have the ability to take human form or become fully human (might be irrelevant) but The Chechen & Turkic people in real life lore are both symbolically said to be variously related to wolves. Then we have Princess Mononoke.... super famous anime movie would not be suprised to see elements here in Destiny. We must understand The Law Of The Jungle seems to resemble some Japanese takes. I included anime as it is especially a big expression used by Japan. Many other animes have wolf referances but i'll just use those 2 for example reasons. Then we have the movies - the jungle book's Akela & Maugrim from Narnia. Also here's some movie/RL folklore: Loki's eldest child is a planet sized wolf named Fenrir :) Then we have real world folklore, I happen to notice that the wolf represents despair & light. Perhaps Bungie rephrased it as a Wolf of light in times of darkness? The Wolf is a common use & typically symbolizes The Warrior or Evil as we all know. Don't forget Lycanthropy the mythical or ritual identification of man and wolf. I believe Dante's Inferno says Dante is attacked by a wolf going up the mountain - (Maybe this relates to the 3 astronaughts going up the hill to see The Traveler?) Their is also Arcadia & Zeus's alter which is up a mountain. Christianity has 13 referances to wolves - feel free to look that up in your own time XD Then we have Mars we know it's symbology & people today still think it's the 1st place we would colonize. Not to mention the wolf star Sirius, often said to be the brightest star in the night sky which according to the Pawnee wasn't invited to the council of how the earth should be made. On Mars their is a giant mountain btw. I remember hearing on the news. Perhaps their is a connection Guardian (Wolves) - Mountain (Perhaps where The Traveler was found/The Trailer) - Moon (Traveler) - it is said the moon grants power to it's wolves The Traveler is the moon & it gives power to the guardians. Example: The Walock: The Midnight Sun description (Sirius referance?) I also noticed that the planets in Destiny have become what scientist use to think they were like if I remember correctly scientist use to think Venus was a garden world well that changed but in humanity's golden age it did become a garden world. Then we have the very real Direwolf unusually large extinct power full wolves as well as the many races of current wolf today. I could go on forever but I think I'll leave off here. Hope you enjoyed & can use this information as you please, personally I think Bungie included it to make the game stronger as I've said.

        • Don't buy it. If the tricorn has any meaning, it is probably a human silhouette. Probably evoking the human images that were placed on the gold plaques of the Pioneer 10 and 11 deep space probes. That plague had line drawings of a human man and woman, plus information about how to find Earth if an extra-terrestrial intelligence actually found the spacecraft. Because the most basic question of the "Golden Age" hasn't been answered. In a galaxy of a 100 billion stars...and a universe of a 100 billion galaxies.... ...how and why the f*** did the Traveller come HERE??!?!

          • So could this possibly mean that the Traveler became our pack leader when we didn't have one, fed us took care of is and made life overall better. When finally the darkness (an old foe) came and turned the other wolves against us.

                    Well that's pretty interesting. Nice research. Edited: After some simple web searching on wolves overall, an average pack size for wolves is 6 and that most zoologists agree that some of the first domesticated wolves were in Russia.

                      Wow, this is so epic and interesting, but isn't that triangle symbol part of an old book of spells or demonic or whatever? Other then that this is mind blowing for me, I didn't know how deep Bungie takes there games. Just awesome!

                    • I thought this was fantastic fun, whether theres any truth to it remains to be seen, but that doesn't really matter. Bungie has always had their fun in hiding little tiny details everywhere like their own private joke. If they do it on purpose or if it's incidental it is always fun trying to piece together the inspiration or pull the thread on an unraveling mystery. It just feels so rewarding making a connection and putting it together like it was left just for you.

                      • With the Traveller in the orbit it is all through the beta, I couldn’t shake the idea that eclipse’s would be very common. Then the hive was on the moon symbolically cutting us from the light. I was calling my ghost Sköll partly from this and partly as I just started watching Vikings. You Sir, just blew my mind. Oh, and bravo on a great post!

                        Lol I learned that bungie likes wolves? I really don't see a relevance to wether or not the Destiny emblem is in correlation with wolves. If you have any useful information like news on a 4th class let me know.
