It's weird (Destiny)

B) how the Book of Sorrows exists in-canon wasn't really thought out, so it can be assumed to be absolute truth in its conception


That's what I suspect. It's sort of how I view the grimoire in general. It presents the true lore of Destiny, it just allows the author to create cool artistic short stories rather than presenting it as a straight forward encyclopedia. I sort of just take everything there as "the truth," but I thought it was an interesting point of discussion to raise and something to think about it.

I think this is probably the way to go. "Truth" is such a subjective thing, especially with lore, myth, and legend. I get the feeling the Grimoire are stories from Long Ago sifted through the sands of time; and like many collections of old stories we have in the real world, it's a bit haphazard on the whole "is it true" question.

I mean, who cares if Icarus was a crap pilot? Not the point.
