Destiny Exotic Lore: Dreg’s Promise

This weapon began as a modified version of the Fallen Shock Pistol, with one of the twin barrels removed and adapting the Vestian Dynasty’s rapid fire action design, merging the rapid rate of fire with the highly effective Fallen Arc direction technology. Due to its sidearm-based design, only the Awoken of the Reef knew the manufacturing methods. This production monopoly made it a scarce sight in other Fallen Houses’ arsenals, as the only Fallen that had access to this weapon were the Scavenger Dregs of the House of Wolves (although Variks the Loyal, who was also a Dreg at the time, having been docked by Skolas during one of his many fits of rage, despite the terrible implications of a Kell docking a Judgement Scribe appointed to them, had his own personal “Promise”). As a result, nearly all production models of the weapon were seized after the betrayal of the Wolves and put to use as incentives for Guardians to fight for the Reef. The rounds fired by this weapon act in a very similar manner to those fired by the Omolon foundry’s “Hard Light” Auto Rifle, leading to a potential breakthrough in the weapon’s capabilities. There is a legend attached to this weapon known as the “Dreg’s Promise” (thus the name), stating that there will be a great Fallen leader known as the “Starcatcher” who will rise from the lowly rank of Dreg to grow ten-thousand arms and stretch the Fallen influence across the stars. This legend appears to have originated even before the scattering of Eliksni society known as the Whirlwind. Indeed, even the ancient prophecies of the House of Rain are outdated by the Legend of the Starcatcher. It may be merely a simple effort by the Fallen to keep their Dregs hopeful even after being put at the lowest rung of Fallen society. However, there are some who believe that there is more to the legend than mere faith…
