Eris Morn Anyone who has already navigated the flaming wreckage of the Tower during the “Homecoming” mission knows the familiar faces that help our Guardian through. Cayde is there, trying to link up with his “date.” Zavala and Ikora are kicking ass on the front lines. Shaxx is there to open a door for you (which is much more helpful than his Crucible dialogue). But where’s Eris? She’s mentioned throughout the campaign, including a reference to Cayde still owing her a ship. It’s also made clear that no one has seen her since the assault. She’s way too important, and
