The events of Curse of Osiris are set in motion when Osiris and Sagira are ambushed in the Infinite Forest, prompting Osiris to send his Ghost back to Mercury. She is damaged in the process, only to be revived by the Guardian with the assistance of the Followers of Osiris after being brought to Ikora Rey by the Vanguard leader's Hidden. Sagira then guides the Guardian into the Infinite Forest, where they are met by the Reflections of Osiris. As the Guardian is guided to the Vex simulation of the future doomed Lighthouse, Panoptes, Infinite Mind arrives, and attacks. A Reflection of Osiris provides an escape for the Guardian, who is afterwards sent by Ikora to the Pyamidion on Io in search of a map of the Infinite Forest to be used in locating Panoptes, to save Osiris. The map isn't there, but Sagira locates a point within the Infinite Forest where they might find it.
After retrieving the map, Sagira realizes she needs the processing power of a Vex mind to locate Panoptes therein, leading the Guardian to Nessus to find one suitable for the task. Unfortunately, upon defeating the mind and connecting its processor to a nearby conflux, the processor shorts out, rendering the map useless. However, Ikora realizes that they can find the Infinite Mind by rewinding time within the Infinite Forest to the inception of Panoptes, and then run time forward to ascertain its location in the present. So the Guardian returns to the Infinite Forest, fighting through Vex until the initial algorithm of the Infinite Forest and, by extension, Panoptes, is obtained. But upon retrieving it, the Infinite Mind arrives, taking Sagira, and ejecting the Guardian from the Forest. Ikora forces open the gateway to the Infinite Forest without Sagira, upon which the Guardian enters and pursues Panoptes. However, after some fighting, Panoptes incapacitates the Guardian, attempting to delete them from the Forest. This is until Osiris finally arrives, drawing the Infinite Mind's attention and assisting the Guardian in dealing the final blow to the Vex Mind, defeating it, and freeing Sagira.
