Crypto-archeologists decode the past and our enemies, seeking new discoveries in matter engrams and artifacts returned by Guardians.

Master Rahool is an Awoken Cryptarch and vendor who appears in Destiny. He resides in central plaza of the The Tower within the last safe city. He will decrypt any Engrams that Guardians find on their adventures around the Sol System, for a fee. As well as decrypting them, he also has a selection of Encrypted Engrams for sale that generate specific armor, weapon or item pieces. One such encrypted engram is offered to the Guardians that have accumulated one or more ranks of reputation with him.

[edit] Personality

Master Rahool holds an profound curiosity for artifacts and relics of the Golden Age, hoping for clues to unlock the time-lost secrets of the Collapse.

[edit] Quotes

[edit] Trivia

  • Master Rahool makes several references to real life religious figures and phrases:
    • Urd, Verandi and Skuld are Old Norse words for "fate", "present" and "future" respectfully. They originate from the Poetic Edda of which he could be referencing.
      • "A wind age, a wolf age" also references the Edda, specifically concerning a poem about the aftermath of Ragnerok.
    • The referenced Hesperides were fairies, or nymphs, who took care of beautiful gardens. They were the daughters of Hesperus, the evening star who is also known as Venus, the planet.
