Why the Hive looks different from Destiny 1? This one could be the answer

So, I'm sure that many of you have noticed that the Hive looks pretty different from Destiny 1. You can clearly see this from the design of the Knights and Accolities. When I saw them the first time, I've simply thought that Bungie re-skinned them just, you know, to give them [i]"a NeW aNd FrEsH lOoK"[/i], but actually there could be a reason -a LORE reason- why these bad guys look so different. On Titan -precisely, into the Festering Halls- you can find a Scannable that says: [quote]"These Hive spawn pods are different from the ones we saw before. [u]Maybe a different brood. Or a different generation[/u]. Gross and confusing."[/quote] Now, in Destiny 1 we fought the Hive that was the progeny, the blood, of Oryx. In Destiny 2, we know that the new Hive-Boss will probably be Savathun, Oryx's sister. There is a Scannable on IO, a Taken Plague, that points directly to her: [quote]"This is sending out some kind of resonant signal. The same syllables, over and over: Sa... Va... Thun..." [/quote] (IO, Terrabase Charron) So, maybe these guys are different 'cos they do not dscend directly from Oryx, but from Savathun, they are the Oryx-Hive-Cousins.... something like that. Also, there is another little thing: if you see, actually the Taken have the same design of Destiny 1. As we know, the Taken, after the fall of Oryx, have been scattered, confused, disorganized. Now it seems that they've found a new "Boss" with Savathun (still, we don't know this for sure)... but, why the Taken have the same shape of the D1 Taken? I think that this is maybe because actually Savathun took the control (or is trying to do so) of the Taken, but she can't create them 'cos this power has been gifted by the Darkness only to Oryx and she can't do this. Maybe she doesn't control the Taken as Oryx, maybe they just decided to follow her, they "ellected her" as a new Guide, as a new Queen. Who knows? What you think about?

  • Ha! Somebody beat me to it. I was on my way here to see if anyone else had caught on that Savathûn was Oryx' (Aurash's) sister, and how that name is appended to many enemies' names (much like the servants of Crota and Oryx in D1) on Titan and Io - glad I'm not the only one who remembers the Books of Sorrow. I noticed the difference in the Hive (both creature models and weapons), as well as the Taken (many Majors now have beasty-looking horns), just assumed it was "new game flash" but if Savathûn is controlling two armies that would explain the difference. Also interesting that the Hive and Taken occupy different planets, with no overlap (so far), and the Hive and Vex (the two "supernatural" enemies) have never clashed. It's worth noting that Io is the also the first time we've seen Taken that aren't "sourced" from native enemies - there are no Hive on Io, but there are tons of Hive Taken. As of D2, we've had every other combination of conflicts: Fallen-Hive: Earth (D1), Moon (D1), Titan (D2) Fallen-Vex: Venus (D1), Nessus (D2) Fallen-Cabal: Mars (D1/HoW), Earth (D2) [Both appear on Nessus in D2, but not in direct conflict] Hive-Fallen: Earth (D1), Moon (D1), Titan (D2) Hive-Vex: {none} Hive-Cabal: Dreadnaught (D1) Vex-Fallen: Venus (D1), Nessus (D2) Vex-Hive: {none} Vex-Cabal: Mars (D1), Nessus (D2), Io (D2) Cabal-Fallen: Mars (D1/HoW), Earth (D2) [Both appear on Nessus in D2, but not in direct conflict] Cabal-Hive: Dreadnaught (D1) Cabal-Vex: Mars (D1), Nessus (D2), Io (D2) Destiny 3 - Wrath of Xivu Arath confirmed.
