The others sing this song of Light and Dark. We, together, have transcended such unimaginative limitations.
― "Awoken" Grimoire Card

The Awoken are a bluish-gray-skinned player species in Destiny.[1] They are descendants of Humans who were aboard the Exodus Green right before the Collapse.[2] The Darkness made something mysterious and strange happened to them at the edge of Human-controlled space, which altered them forever.[3]

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.[4]

Notable Awoken[]


  • Bungie drew its inspiration for the Awoken from mythological creatures such as elves, vampires, ghosts, and angels.[1]
