The Awoken are an ethereal, bluish-gray-skinned player species in Destiny. They have been described by Bungie as "exotic, beautiful, and mysterious."[2]


It is said the Awoken were born in the Collapse, descended from those who tried to flee its wrath.[1] Something happened to them out on the edge of the deep Black, and they were forever changed.[1] Today many Awoken live in the Reef, aloof and mysterious, but others returned to Earth, where their descendants now fight for the City.[1] Earthborn Awoken sometimes venture out to the Reef, hoping to learn its secrets - but find no special welcome from the reclusive Queen.[1]

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.[3] The character brandished a hand cannon at a Warlock and spoke with a flanged voice.[3]

Design and InspirationEdit

In terms of player design, Bungie drew its inspiration for the Awoken from mythological creatures such as elves, vampires, ghosts, and angels.[2]
