Characters are persons in Destiny with distinguishable, unique features such as a unique name, voice, clothing, or armor. The player characters in Destiny are Guardians, while a variety of unique (but mostly as-of-yet unidentified) non-player characters (NPCs) have been shown to exist in trailers and concept art.
In Destiny, unique characters, both playable and NPC, will be composed of a large variety of species and classes. Guardians themselves may be any one of nine potential combinations of species (Human, Awoken, or Exo) and classes (Hunter, Warlock, or Titan). Additionally, players will have the ability to create and name multiple different characters of different species and classes, likely integrated to allow players the full experience of the game instead of limiting them to a single class and species.
