The others sing this song of Light and Dark. We, together, have transcended such unimaginative limitations.
The Awoken are a bluish-gray-skinned playerspecies in Destiny. They are descendants of Humans who, during the Collapse, tried to run to the far edges of known space to escape The Darkness. Something mysterious and strange happened to them at the edge of Human-controlled space, which altered them forever. Many of the Awoken live in The Reef, but others also live on Earth. Earth-born Awoken who adventure to The Reef often go unwelcomed by Queen Mara Sov as outsiders.
In addition to being a playable species, some characters are also Awoken. An unnamed Awoken character was shown in the E3 2013 gameplay reveal trailer. The character brandished a Hand Cannon at a Warlock and spoke with a flanged voice.
