Awoken are a playable species in Destiny. They are described by Bungie as exotic, beautiful, and mysterious and are inspired by elves, vampires, ghosts, and angels. They are one of the three playable Guardian races to choose from along with Human and Exo. The awoken when oryx attacked the system lost a fourth of there military forces and great deal of their commanding figures, including the awoken queen Mira Sov who is considered MIA, during the battle with oryx and his fleet but the battle served it's purpose as it forced oryx and the remainder of his fleet to remain trapped in the solar system among the rings of saturn which gave the guardians time to board the dreadnought, disable it's weapon systems and later slay the taken king oryx along with giving the guardians time to capture the ship.



The Awoken are descendants of Humans who, during the Collapse, tried to run to the far edges of known space to escape The Darkness. Something happened to them out on the edge of the deep Black, and they were forever changed. Today many Awoken live in the Reef, aloof and mysterious, but others returned to Earth, where their descendants now fight for the City.
