This has huge parallels with our light meter. It grows with every kill, minion of the darkness or guardian. Are we sure we aren't bad? Do we understand the nature of the light & the darkness? I would think that our light meter should be tied to the life we give, not the life we take. I understand from a game mechanics perspective why it's the way it is, but it just seems to go counter to what my understanding of the nature of the light or how the light should work.


More observations:

"And they killed each other again and again, so that they could practice death."

We have a battleground/killing ground where we practice killing each other [and also practice death]
It is known as PvP

We don't actually die, we are nearly always able to be revived by our Ghost

The swords transformed, which we are able to use in game, crave death. The blades 3 are honed with killing/death which satiates their thrist

This is paperthin, and not literal, but interesting? Do the important traits of The Hive Triumvirate have huge parallels that could be drawn with our Guardian's class attributes?

Aurash / Auryx / Oryx = Warlock? / Smart, curious, secret seeker, astronomer, star explorer, long-sighted, logic
Sathona / Savathûn = Hunter? / Clever, cunning, knowledge, sharp mind, trickery, strategic
Xi Ro / Xivu Arath = Titan? / War, strength, destruction, conquer, triumph, brawn

(not sure if I've categorized correctly, could Hunter and Warlock possibly be interchanged?)
