"Osiris seeks the strongest Guardians to stem the tide of Darkness" Brother Vance is a disciple and representative of Osiris, and can be found in the Vestian Outpost in the Reef. He is there to recruit the strongest Guardians for the Trials of Osiris, offering entry and rewards to the event. Brother Vance is a former Warlock, and apparently blind.1
"I may be blind, Guardian, but I know you are there."
"I lost my sight long ago but there are other senses".1
"Do what the Queen asks. This is all part of the pattern."
"You know why I'm here, and you know what I offer."
"My master always had... an understanding with the Queen."
"Ask yourself, What would you do if it was proven the Speaker was a charlatan?"
"The candles are for focus. Don't let them distract you."
"Does Osiris live? I assure you, he lives through me."
"If you seek Osiris, you must begin with the Trials."
"If you're looking for me, you've found me."
"Don't worry about the candles. They center me."
"Yes. I am what you think I am."
"If you think you're ready, then you're ready."
"I was once a Guardian, like yourself, but now I am on a different path."
"I can't tell you where Osiris has gone. It isn't time for you to know."
"My regards to Cayde, Hunter."
"I sacrificed my sight in the Trials, and it wasn't enough."
"I think of myself as a hunter too. In a way."
"Osiris stood before the Nine on the ice fields of Europa but the time wasn't right"
"C'mon lets get a sense of your might."
"Excuse me, I was just meditating."
"I came here because we have business of our own with the Queen. Nothing to do with Wolves, but plenty to do with Skolas."
"Tell me Guardian, do you think you're ready for the Trials?"
"Osiris fought at the battle of Six Fronts, it's said he seemed to be everywhere at once that day."
"They say the Nine released Skolas, no doubt they had their reasons. But it brought you here and they may yet regret that."
"If it's not time, it's not time"
"The Queen and Osiris, I believe they conspire. Have you heard the name Oryx, Guardian?"
"In your own time."
"He trusts Ikora, he knows her Hidden too well."
"There are a few of us 'followers of Osiris'. We...move around a lot."
"Oryx, this name, do you know it? They want this Oryx here, out of the darkness"
"I began as a Guardian, I left to follow a different path. Perhaps you will too one day."
"It all has to come together, but what if we miss"
"When you're ready."
"He says the Nine are vulnerable ever moment they touch our world."
"Listen. Do you hear that?"
"The purpose of the trials is to hone the right weapon for the right moment."
"If we miss our moment, if we're not ready. It won't come again"
"I was just reading his words. Osiris. Have you heard of him?"
"Are you the one who faced Crota?"
"What are the Warlocks focused on these days?"
"I was just meditating, Warlock. Would you like to join me?"
"I used to be a Warlock, now I follow a different path."
"No, you are not one of Ikora's Hidden, are you? I feel like we've met before."
"When you've been out of The City so long you start to talk to yourself, Don't mind me."
"He is the one true Speaker, who knows that the Traveler will never speak again."
"I was talking to myself, you're not interrupting anything."
"It's a long time since I've been back at The Tower. Does the Speaker still speak of Osiris?"
"You are aware of the Hidden, yes? But you are not one of them. You do not wear the mark."
"Maybe you're the one. Why don't you show us."
"I was meditating, Titan. Join me if you'd like."
"I'm an old, blind Warlock far from home. Perhaps we can talk."
"My regards to Commander Zavala, Titan."
"What brings you out here so close to the Darkness. Can you feel it?"
"Titans know the value of stillness."
