Humans are one of the chief races in Destiny, and figure importantly into the epic battle between the Traveler and The Darkness.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Humanity evolved on Earth over the course of millions of years, technologically developing into a space-faring populace. Upon a mission to Mars, humanity discovered the mysterious Traveler, a monolithic globe of intense power. Under the guidance of the Traveler, humanity entered a Golden Age; their lifespans were tripled, their technology grew by leaps and bounds, and the once Earth-bound race expanded into outer space, establishing colonies within the solar system. During this time, humanity also created a race of robots known as the Exo, sentient and powerful robots imbued with the collective knowledge of humanity.

Downfall[edit | edit source]

Humanity enjoyed its Golden Age for many years, but it abruptly came to an end with the Great War. Unbeknownst to humanity, the Traveler had a great challenger in pursuit, known only as The Darkness. Attacking suddenly with brutality, the Darkness quickly overwhelmed human settlements, wiping out millions in its epic war against the Traveler. Nearing eradication, humanity retreated back to Earth and the protective shadow of the Traveler.

Facing its age old foe, the Darkness assaulted the Traveler, nearly destroying it. In its last dying breath, the Traveler temporarily defeated The Darkness, created the empowered humans known as the Guardians, and forged the Ghosts to help them in their survival. Limited now to the City, the Guardians launch missions from their Tower in preparations for the ensuing battle against the Darkness, searching for some way to bring the Traveler back to life.
