Political & Military
Dead Orbit only grudgingly maintains a presence in the Tower to arm and outfit their champions in the Crucible.
Arach Jalaal is a vendor that can be found in the Tower in Destiny. He is an Awoken male but does not seem to identify with any of the Guardians Classes as he dons none of their typical armor pieces. He acts as a representative of the Dead Orbit faction in the City and will sell Guardians a variety of Dead Orbit-branded weapons, armor, and emblems for use inside the Crucible.
Arach can be described as a pessimist and fatalist, believing that the fight with the Darkness is a losing one and that humanity should seek a new home rather than trying to destroy it. He has a dismissive opinion of other factions in the City.
"We'll need fighters to get us off this dying world."
"What good will our possessions do when the Darkness returns?"
"I pleaded with the commander. He turned his back on me, so we must do this ourselves."
"How can we ever leave knowing how many we have left behind?"
"I dreamed of the Darkness, swallowing the lights of the City block by block."
"Earth has had its time. Mourn it, but don't die with it."
"Children can serve Dead Orbit too. You see, little bodies can crawl in where others can't."
"Oh it's the children I can't bare to think of. Think of their eyes when the Darkness comes."
"The New Monarchy offers false hope. No king or queen can stand against the Darkness."
"What good will the Traveler do when the Darkness comes. It's been silent too long."
"Let the Executors mark us. We'll see how the ridiculous king fairs when the Darkness comes."
"One by one the stars will go dark, we must outrun this unstoppable tide."
"If the Executors stand in our way, they will see we are not afraid to fight."
"A whole Golden Age shipyard, but crawling with Fallen."
"It's not for our sake, but for those who will be born on better worlds."
"The Fleet is our hope, I don't care what the law says. Take what we need."
