The Awoken are a bluish-gray-skinned player species in Destiny.[2] They are descendants of Humans who, during the Collapse, tried to run to the far edges of known space to escape The Darkness.[citation needed] Something mysterious and strange happened to them at the edge of Human-controlled space, which altered them forever.[citation needed] Many of the Awoken live in The Reef, but others also live on Earth. Earth-born Awoken who adventure to The Reef are often unwelcomed by the Queen as outsiders.[3]

Notable AwokenEdit

In addition to being a playable species, some non-player characters are also Awoken. An unnamed Awoken character was shown in the E3 2013 gameplay reveal trailer.[4] The character brandished a Hand Cannon at a Warlock and spoke with a flanged voice.[4]


  • Bungie drew its inspiration for the Awoken from mythological creatures such as elves, vampires, ghosts, and angels.[2]
