Destiny 2 Vision
First mission, Homecoming, is a Cabal attack on the tower. Guardians lose, the Cabal place a mechanism on the Traveler which instantly takes all the light from the Guardians. Their powers are lost, the tower is destroyed, and Destiny 2 is all about recovering what was lost. Cabal leader Dominus Ghaul believes the Traveler made a mistake in giving the light to us. Wants to take it for the Cabal and make a newer, better, Guardian. Need to recover the three members of the Vanguard: Cayde-6, Ikora Rey, and Commander Zavala
