Nessus is a planetoid. It is inhabited by Vex, who have transformed it almost entirely into a machine world.
At some point during the Collapse, the colony ship Exodus Black crashed on Nessus. The only survivor was the ship's AI, Failsafe.
After Dominus Ghaul attacked The City, Cayde-6 fled to Nessus. Some time after that, Emperor Calus' flagship arrived in orbit, and he began sending out invitations to Guardians to board it.
- Nessus' canyon design was based on tepui, the flat-shaped mountains in South America.
