So Variks is returned with the new expansion and it's unknown if it'll be mentioned that he was the one who started the prison riot and escape that got Cayde killed. To tell you the truth I don't really care that he did and hope he sticks around to interact more.
There's also Uldren who has been reborn and who may or may not be returning as the new tutorial guardian Shaw Han. I have the same opinion on him as Variks.
The reason I bring it up at all is I assumed most people would be on board with more characters sticking around and not being thrown out but I've seen some unrelated let's plays and I see now that alot of players hold petty grudges for a long long time. Also Bungie bringing Uldren back might seem a cop out to people who played Forsaken and thought it was all done and dusted so Uldren walking back in the door like nothing happened might anger players who don't keep up on the ongoing story. So I understand Bungie being really vague about what Uldren is up to or if he'll show up in any major way again but honestly I really like Uldren (&Variks) and I'm totally for forgiving him and being buddies if that's an option.
Am I alone on this?
