As part of Game Informer‘s month-long coverage of Destiny 2‘s upcoming expansion, Bungie has provided more background on the group of enemies that partner together to kill Cayde-6.

As previously teased by Bungie, the Forsaken DLC begins with the death of the beloved Hunter Vanguard, and while it was shown that Awoken prince Uldren Sov will be the one who pulls the trigger, he doesn’t bring Cayde-6 to his knees on his own. Eight Fallen leaders known as The Barons team up with Sov to get revenge on the Vanguard that locked them away in the cells of the Prison of Elders.

According to Game Informer, “hunting down the Barons comprises a large part of your journey in the initial campaign, and each their own story, traits, and boss encounter, making them some of Destiny 2‘s most interesting foes yet.” Below you can see a brief description of each Baron.

The Fanatic

  • Real name: Fikrul
  • Known Aliases: The Fanatic, Master of Souls, Shadow Priest
  • Race: Fallen Archon (male)
    • Leader of the Barons and the dark, corrupted evolution of the Eliksni known as “The Scorn.” Second only to Prince Uldren Sov, he views his Scorn as an evolution of the Fallen and the final manifestation of what they were always meant to be—eternal.

The Machinist

  • Real name: Elykris
  • Known Aliases: The Machinist, Scourge of Solis Descent, Elykris the Bandit
  • Race: Fallen Baron (female)
    • Second-in-command to the Fanatic and his most ardent follower. Expert in munitions, weapon-crafting and in charge of the siege on the [REDACTED]. She’s an insatiable thief and hoarder with a terrifying arsenal.

The Mindbender

  • Real name: Hiraks
  • Known Aliases: The Mindbender, Hiraks the Brain, Hiraks Ascendent
  • Race: Fallen Baron (male)
    • A mad genius who has been changed by his research into the Hive and their dark religion has somehow found a means of exercising control over Hive combatants.

The Trickster

  • Real name: Araskes
  • Known Aliases: Araskes the Wit, Butcher of Bamberga, Slayer of the Psyche Hordes, Terminus of the Gray Legion
    • A sliver-tongued manipulator and con artists with a high opinion of herself, the Trickster has a penchant for deadly sleight-of-hand and prefers to work behind-the-scenes when it comes to the Barons’ operations. She does all she can to stay out of sight and is known for duping others into doing her dirty work.

The Hangman

  • Real name: Reksis Vahn
  • Known Aliases: The Hangman, Reksis the Scathe, The Godslayer
  • Race: Fallen Baron (male)
    • A silent sadist known for his penchant for docking and tearing Ether generators from the cores of Servitors with his bare hands. His obsession with torturing Servitors is unprecedented in the history of the Eliksni.

The Mad Bomber

  • Real name: Kaniks
  • Known Aliases: The Mad Bomber, Kaniks Two-Fingers, Kaniks the Detonator
  • Race: Fallen Baron (male)
    • A bombastic thrill-seeker for whom self-preservation is an afterthought, the lunatic known as the Mad Bomber is willing to blow and entire location to smithereens just to kill his target.

The Rifleman

  • Real name: Pirrha
  • Known Aliases: The Rifleman, Pirrha the Phantom, Pirrha the Blind
  • Race: Fallen Baron (male)
    • An all-seeing sniper who watches his brother Barons’ backs, The Rifleman keeps his targets at a distance, plays real dirty, and never misses his shot. Brilliant, cold, and patient, more than one of the Rifleman’s notches is a Guardian’s ghost.

The Rider

  • Real name: Yaviks
  • Known Aliases: The Rider, Yaviks the Hoss, Yaviks the Untamed
  • Race: Fallen Baron (female)
    • Anarchist biker and leader of her own gang of Pike riders, the Rider razes fields and pollutes the air everywhere she and her gang run. She’s a master mechanic who’s taken the Fallen heavy pike and made it better—much, much better.

Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Forsaken is set to launch on September 5th.
