― "Awoken" Grimoire Card
The Awoken are a bluish-gray-skinned player species in Destiny. They are descendants of Humans who were aboard the Exodus Green right before the Collapse. The Darkness made 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 venture to The Reef often go unwelcomed by Queen Mara Sov as outsiders.
