Events of Destiny
Zavala was the Titan Vanguard at the time of the destruction of the Black Heart by the Guardian. As Vanguard Commander, Zavala is responsible for many of the campaigns and operations conducted by Guardians throughout Destiny and Destiny 2.
Zavala is seen a clear headed leader, someone who doesn't think without a second thought, he often finds himself putting the other vanguards in the tower in place, so you could say he is a responsible role-model. During the Red War campaign, Zavala was forced to escape to Titan with whatever civilians he could, there he showed his dedication to the people of the Last City as he constantly puts their protection above all else.
