The origin of ,,EOS"

Why this giant, final form of 5H4D0W-TP is called ,EOS"?

I’ve found this in dictionary: ,Eos is, in Greek mythology, the Titan goddess of the dawn, who rose from her home at the edge of Oceanus, the Ocean that surrounds the world, to herald her brother HELIOS, the sun."

well done Gearbox


It also fits in nicely with Pandora, Elpis, Athena, … There’s a lot of Greek mythology references scattered throughout the entire Borderlands series.

And here I thought it was just short for “Eye of Shadow” since it mimics the Eye of Helios with the giant laser and whatnot.

This makes much more sense.

Don’t forget about Atlas and Hyperion, too!

I thought EOS was a short for End of Stream, which is why Shadow trap gets defeated when we defeat him after using the end of H Source data :stuck_out_tongue:

That one seems more fitting though. Well done.

It gets a lot more in-depth than this, but I have to go to work and don’t have time :wink: You’d be amazed how deep some of their hidden gems go. Once again I’m reminded of the captain chef mission, in particular. I’ll spin y’all some lore when I get home.

Oh my, yes - Captain Chef and King Greg (Huzzah!) There should be a thread about that buried way deep somewhere…

Chef=James Cook, I know about this

It’s my thread. Obviously, its about James cook discovering Australia. Cook arrived in 1770, during the reign of King George III, aka King Greg. You meet captain chef in triton flats, the first place cook made landfall was the Cronulla Sand Dunes. Then you meet him in Vorago Solitude, a place people don’t believe exists, and his second journey was to find the fabled Terra Australis. Chef is so proud of his undiscovered land he finds, though clearly he’s not the first. Neither was Cook: The first was Willem Janszoon, a dutch navigator in 1606, then about 30 more before Cook. There’s more, but that’s enough for now.

To be somewhat fair to all those “first” discoverers, Australia does have a rather long coastline…

its ALL coastline.

What about the middle bit

First discoverer’s can’t see the middle :smiley:

And most of the ones who tried to discover the middle were never heard from again.

To this day that’s true.
