Familiars (Destiny)

I had been wondering, from the time of the earliest concept art if the little "floaty" thing was some variety of familiar. It seems that that may be the case.

I'm going with souls here since they've been mentioned so much in connection with Destiny. What if the chosen dead's soul is returned and bound to the "ghost"? It's common enough in mythology to have an external soul as a device to keep the hero safe.
Perhaps our Guardians are a type of Ghola created from the bound soul's pattern via this "trans-mat" technology we've heard about. I suspect that's like a Molecular Assembler that enables near instantaneous creation of a new body, shrike etc as long as it's got the pattern. That's my two cents anyway.
