All is well. Aiat: what is at war is healthy, what is at peace is sick.
My son Crota feeds me rich, rich tribute. My lineages are strong, my worm is vast and satiated, and with that security I can spend my time on study and communion with the Deep. As I learn more secrets, my power grows; as my power grows I use it to learn more secrets. Aiat: let it be thus because it must.
I wonder if my sisters have secrets of their own. If my power exceeds theirs I may kill them permanently and subsume their thrones. But I think they have strength that they hide from me, developed in time of separation. Aiat: the only meaningful relationship is the attempt to destroy.
The Deep doesn’t want everything to be the same: it wants life, strong life, life that lives free without the need for a habitat of games to insulate it from reality. When I make my Taken I make them closer to perfect, I heal their wounds and enhance their strengths. This is inherently good. Aiat: the only right is existence, the only wrong is nonexistence.
I am Oryx, the First Navigator, the Taken King. Aiat: let me be what I am because to be anything else would be fatal.
Oryx, the Taken King, born Aurash and formerly known as Auryx (meaning "Long Thought"), is the sovereign of the Osmium Throne, the God-King of the Hive, and master of the Taken.
Reborn from the Darkness itself through a wicked pact, Oryx is the founder of the Hive race, alongside his sisters and fellow deities, Savathûn, the Witch-Queen and Xivu Arath, God of War, and the source of their terrible power. Of all the Hive gods, he alone holds the power to bend other races to his will. Oryx is also the father of the dreaded Crota, a deadly Hive Prince who slew thousands of Guardians during the Great Disaster, and Nokris, his estranged first-born and then herald of the Worm God Xol.
Enraged at the death of Crota, Oryx traveled to the Solar System aboard his Dreadnaught seeking revenge but was defeated by the Guardian. After escaping to his throne realm; his second match with the Guardians ends with his permanent loss and the threat he posed to the Solar System.

Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Weapon Mastery (Type 1), Immortality (Types 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. He was granted eternal life by the Worm Gods. Oryx cannot be conventionally killed since his death is "hidden" on his Oversoul, which resides in the Ascendant Plane.

Became unbound by causal closure after reaching godhood, turning into an existence that "escaped" causality completely), Existence Erasure, Soul Manipulation, Corruption (Type 2), Mind Manipulation, Possession (The ability to Take passively erases existence in the area around them, which ontologically destroys foes and makes them return as taken subservient to the will of Oryx, compromising their minds), Non-Physical Interaction, Conceptual Manipulation (Type 2, likely 1.

Attack Potency: Universe level+, likely Multiverse level to Multiverse level+ (Much stronger than his children, such as Crota. Pushed his own Throne World inside out) | At least Low Macroverse level (Overpowered the Vex and the latter calculated that no amounts of efforts would let them win against Oryx, suffering an inevitable defeat. The might of the Vex as a collective is great enough that the significance of infinite multiverses such as the Infinite Forest are likened to the difference between 2.11... and 2.2), likely Ascendent level (Can fight against the Guardian, who destroyed the Black Garden, which transcends the Vex, who could create an infinite-dimensional Hilbert Space construct)
Speed: Unknown | Immeasurable (Superior to the Vex Collective, the latter who can disrupt the weft and weave of time itself and also sidestep through time. Powerful Vex minds are responsible for keeping certain realms locked outside of time. Fought against Guardians, who have moved in the Black Garden, which grows into the past and future and also is adrift in time and space), likely Irrelevant

Standard Equipment: Willbreaker, The Dreadnaught, Akka, Worm of Secrets
Intelligence: Supergenius (Created a spaceship out of the bones of Akka. Has billions of years of fighting experience and overcame Quria's range of tactics, whereas Quria instantly deciphered Sword Logic when normal Vex could not)
