Bite-sized Backstory 20: The Eater of Hope and His Sisters (Destiny)

I'm obviously jumping ahead here - just off the preview title - but be careful not to read the Vex intrusion into Oryx's throne as necessarily the *origin* of the Vex, or even their 'first' (whatever that means with Vex) act in the Destiny timeline. It's the first encounter with the Vex by the Hive according to this Book of Sorrow.

Right. My plan was to use the "Origin of the Vex" title as a draw but to dive into that idea moving forward and explain that this wasn't an origin and was instead a discovery of the Vex. And, like you said, not necessarily even the first time the Hive discovered the Vex. Having you reinforce this idea is very helpful!

So, thank you for the nudge. I try and pay close attention any time you reply to one of these. I'm always grateful to have any information that helps with the accuracy of what is ultimately my imperfect interpretation of these stories. :)
