Show Notes – Ep 197 (Letters from Eris)

This week, we sit down with special guest NeoMadDog to discuss the lore book, Letters from Eris.


Summary of Episodes

This particular book contains a series of reports filed by the former Hunter, Eris Morn, addressed to Queen Mara Sov and Vanguard Mentor Ikora Rey concerning the events which the Guardians experienced throughout the base Shadowkeep campaign. Throughout the entries, we see Eris struggle with personal ghosts as well as addressing some of the larger concerns that many Guardians before her had grappled with – namely, what is the destiny that lay in wait for us at the end of this battle? 

“Pain is something that never truly goes away. It is something you live with, hoping it makes you stronger as you learn to cope. You cannot bury it, nor hide from it. There is power in acknowledging it.

I will not be weighed down in the dark by my past, my mistakes, or my trauma. Instead, I will use them, and they will lift me up, into the Light.”
