Since Destiny has like, RPG elements, I like to make little backstories for my characters. It really adds to the immersion and is a kinda fun thing to do in your down time. My Warlock was a student during the Golden Age who was attempting to discover secrets of the light, but as he got to the Cosmodrome in Russia to get to the appropriate planet to share his findings, the collapse or w.e that destroyed the place killed him. My Hunter was a soldier during late modern times/ early Golden Age who was on her way to becoming one of the first colonists along side her family when they were killed in a car accident during the Russian winter; their car was buried underneath the snow and was never found. My Titan was actually a bodyguard for a high ranking official sent to scout Earth after The Collapse to check for any signs of life, but he (and his group) were killed by an unknown group; the last thing he rendered seeing was a red helm with glowing green eyes. Somehow, these three would come together during their initial trips to Old Russia and formed a group that would attempt to become the legends humanity so needed, and live the lives that were stolen from them. That's what I came up with while getting my ass handed to me in The Crucible. What about you guys? Any stories for your own characters? Would love to hear them.
