Destiny 2 is a game full of lore and secrets and one of the most intriguing mysteries is the origin and fate of the Ahamkara.

One of the mysterious Ahamkara is Taranis, the wish-granting dragons that once roamed the solar system.

Who Is Taranis In Destiny 2?

Taranis was an Ahamkara, a species of cosmic beings that could manipulate reality by granting wishes.

Ahamkara was sought after by many factions, such as the Guardians, the Awoken, and the Vex, for their power and knowledge.

However, the Ahamkara were also dangerous, as they often twisted the wishes of their bargainers to their benefit.

This led to the Great Hunt, a campaign to exterminate the Ahamkara from the solar system.

He was a charitable and compassionate Ahamkara, who made safe and fair bargains with no strings attached.

Additionally, he was curious and fascinated by the Awoken, especially by their queen, Mara Sov, and her bond with Riven, another Ahamkara.

Taranis befriended Riven and they shared secrets, chased each other in the Gardens, and had a clutch of eggs together.

Furthermore, Taranis even invited Riven to his lair in the Black Garden, a mysterious realm where the Vex worships the Darkness.

Taranis and Riven were happy until the Great Hunt began.

He survived the Hunt, but Riven was taken by Oryx, the Taken King, and corrupted by his power.

Most of their eggs were also tainted by the Darkness, except for a few that Taranis managed to save.

Taranis then made a wish of his own, to protect his offspring and ensure the future of his species.

He wished for his eggs to be scattered across the Leylines, hidden from harm until someone worthy could find them and take care of them.

This wish, however, cost Taranis his life, as Ahamkara cannot feed on their wishes.

He sacrificed himself for his children and became the only Ahamkara who could be called noble.
