by | Oct 10, 2022

As a new player in Destiny 2, you first encounter Eris Morn at the beginning of the Shadowkeep campaign. The story revolves around Eris uncovering a Pyramid ship buried under the surface of the Moon. Upon disturbance, strange phantoms begin to appear all over the place.

Eris Morn is also a very close friend to Ikora Rey, the Warlock Vanguard, and often plays the role of either her advisor or ours.

Eris Morn Season of Arrivals

Who is Eris Morn? A brief history

Eris is a…fallen guardian, a Hunter who serves the Vanguard as well as an expert on Hive. Her story begins as the sole survivor of a Fireteam led by Eriana-3, an Exo (sentient machine) whotried to take on Crota, Hive son of Oryx—The Taken King.

Her team was completely wiped out save for Eris, who survived crawling around in the pits of the Hell mouth on Luna (Earth, Moon). She no longer has a ghost, which means she’s mortal and no longer a Guardian. Later, Eris would help to guide Guardians of the Last City to Crota’s destruction. All while continuing a secret alliance with Queen Mara Sov and Osiris, once exiled Warlock.

To overcome this, Eris binds the will of Crow, Zavala, and Emperor Caitl – daughter of Calus, to the Crown of Sorrow to overcome Calus.
