Mysterious 5th race, the Darkness?

As the title states we know of the Cabal, The Fallen, The Hive and Vex but who is the 5th Race? I am not including Humanity and the subcategories such as the awoken and exo. The only thing i have found is the Onyx Pyramids here ( http://i.imgur.com/HK08XzY.jpg ) even then they are not the ships any of the other races use. The photo of the races has 5 there and the 5th has smoke and Pyramids and we see these Pyramids in a huge cluster in the other photo. There is even achievement called Dragon slayer: Kill a champion of the Dark. We know there is a dragon seen in the trailers. Read this, It's Rasputin the AI that protected earth at the collapse and his encounter with the darkness. [spoiler]-----Ghost Fragment: Darkness----- V113NNI070XMX001 SECRET HADAL INSTANT AI-COM/RSPN: SOLSECCENT//SxISR//DEEPSPACE CONTACT CONTACT CONTACT TRANSIENT. NULLSOURCE. NULLTYPE. This is a SKYSHOCK ALERT. Multiple distributed ISR assets report a TRANSIENT NEAR EXTRASOLAR EVENT. Event duration ZERO POINT THREE SECONDS. Event footprint includes sterile neutrino scattering and gravity waves. Omnibus analysis detects deep structure information content (nine sigma) and internal teleonomy. No hypothesis on event mechanism (FLAG ACAUSAL). Bootstrap simulation suggests event is DIRECTED and INIMICABLE (convergent q-Bayes/Monte Carlo probability approaches 1). No hypothesis on deep structure encoding (TCC/NP-HARD). Source blueshift suggests IMMINENT SOLAR ENTRY. Promote event to SKYSHOCK: OCP: EXTINCTION. Activate VOLUSPA. Activate YUGA. Cauterize public sources to SECURE ISIS and harden for defensive action. I am invoking CARRHAE WHITE and assuming control of solar defenses. STOP STOP STOP V113NNI070XMX091[/spoiler] Any ideas or clues? Could the 5th race be the darkness? Edit: we only know that The Darkness is a very old enemy of the Traveler. Notice the Triangle ships in the first photo and the similarity with the second photo.

  • Duh obviously the fifth race, are the Reapers from mass effect and inside the traveller is a leviathan running from them. Hive more like the collectors. ;)

    • I expect it to be something like this. 4 front races. One the background. Finally sees one the background. Understands true terror. The darkness possess and buffs the hive and other races. But I expect it to have it own "purebred" forms too.

      • You left out the Race that has no plannet. They are the space Pirates Talked about in the Destiny Viewer. They travel from world to world looting what ever they want. Can't remember what they are called.

        • The 5 th race your talking about is the darkness but you see only one humanoid shape and it has a circle light on its head and in the background you can the triangle shapes of ships in the yellow background. The guardians that became corrupted to the darkness. I am hoping they become a playable race down the future

        • I hope they aren't like forerunners. By that I mean we actually see them they aren't just something we hear about over the course of the games

          • The Darkness could be guardians the traveler created in another solar system who became corrupted. They could be dangerous due to their time at honing and advancing their power to the point where they were too powerful. (Think of the Guardians of the darkness as a Super Saiyan and us as Saiyans)

                • The darkness should be eery and terrifying only seeing them rarely throught the game and then at the end you fight a low lvl darkness but is actually really powerful at your lvl of skill. Only to see what the true power of the darkness is in the 2nd game.

                  • Hold a seance. Channel bnet user: Charlemagne. Channel bnet user: USplendid. Understand that most of Destiny has subtle overtones and antiquities revolving around many past civilizations/religions of Earth, but the main story seems more tied to Egyptian Legend and The Land Of The Dead (Osiris, The Traveller, the Awoken and their appearance). The Egyptians may have been the first in contact with the Darkness, worshiping them as gods, but awaiting The Traveller for deliverance and release from the bonds of their masters... You must probe... [spoiler]deeper[/spoiler]

                      • Definitely the Darkness. Question is: When will we see them in their physical form?

                          • I really hope that the darkness is this absolutely terrifying enemy that we see a lot in the end of the campaign and more of it exploring as we finish the campaign and not just a term for all the 4 enemy's also I think that the hive have something to do with the darkness because when I went into the hell mouth I saw fountains spewing out black water and like black smoke or something just pools of black everywhere

                            • I'm guessing the Champion of the Dark mentioned in one of Destiny's achievements/Trophies is a member of the faction. Hopefully it's the dragon seen in the release trailer!

                                  • I believe the 5th race or "Dark Army" as they are sometimes referred too, are what I would describe as the manifestation of the Darkness. A race of pure evil beings who only live to destroy and/or corrupt everything in their path. That's why they "The Darkness" hunt the Traveler, it embodies everything they hate and wish to destroy, "The Light".

                                    • I genuinely the think the mysterious 5th race are the awokens that are against the human awoken alliance because they were once a respectable superior race but had to down grade and work with humans. So basically 2 factions of awokens one is good and chose to work with humans, where as the other are bad and despise everything that's not awoken there for bought about the darkness themselves.

                                    • It's Bungie. Expect a plot twist. I'm betting the Darkness is another race of humans.

                                      Might help, might not! Got a feeling they corrupt and control other lifeforms.
