Clearing things up

Happy Halloween everyone 👻🎃 If you’re young enough for trick-or-treating, may your bags overflow with treats. If you’re too old, then I’m in your boat, so u guys have fun scaring little kids I don’t have time to make longer posts today, so those of you who were expecting my Halloween stories will have to wait a day or two. Until then, here’s a post on some of the things that need clearing up in the lore community right now (a lot of this is oversimplified for the sake of being understandable) [b]Cayde’s arm:[/b] since humanity has no knowledge of how Exos work or how to properly repair them, everyone has been asking me how Cayde has gotten his arm back without it being a clunky thing with a “built in rocket launcher”. This one is simple, because when Cayde got his Light back his Ghost rebuilt the arm. Ghosts can rebuild any lost parts of their Guardian guys [b]Rise of Iron:[/b] I’ve noticed a lot of confusion from D1 players about there only being a couple of D2 lines referencing what we did in RoI, as well as the alarming presence of people saying RoI isn’t canon. I assure all of u, RoI is cannon and we are an Iron Lord, BUT we are not one of the original Iron Lords of the first generation so flavor texts still say Saladin is “the last Iron Lord” [b]The Stranger:[/b] the Stranger may have been shelved after D1, but she is still canon, no matter what people are saying in the forums. We can only hope that she appears to us again later in Destiny, because as long as the Vex are a threat I believe she should be present [b]Exos in general:[/b] Exos are machine bodies that had a human mind basically downloaded into them. Exos ARE human and we have no evidence of any non-human Exos. We’re now seeing places in D2 with Exos frozen in Warmind bunkers, and this can be explained simply by the fact that Exo construction and mind transplants were overseen by Warminds like Rasputin, so it makes sense for them to be there [b]Vex:[/b] the Vex are a white organic liquid that controls a machine body. They can be compared to a hive mind due to the way they all perform individual tasks to benefit the whole, but collective mind is a better term (and the one used in Destiny) because they are not a bunch of workers controlled by one superior mind. They are all fragments of the same mind that work together, like all the nerves that make up a single brain. Having two Goblins stand a few meters away from each other is like having two copies of the exact same person who are having different experiences at the same time and sharing that knowledge with all the other versions of themselves. The Vex are unable to simulate Guardians because we defy the laws of physics, so we pose a real threat to their work, which is to integrate themselves into all time and space so that they will never die out It was a short list but hopefully it’ll help some of u guys out. As always I’m open to any feedback or questions any of u have. Light be with u, Guardians

    Thing is, at the end of D2s story, we dont see any of the Vanguard with their ghosts (see ending D2) so in my eyes they didn't get their power back (not light anymore as its retconned), so at the end of D2 the only guardian with a ghost is yourself. So im unsure the bit about Cayde 6 is right.
