"I need to know what you found out there."
— Orin[1]

Orin the Lost, born Nasya Sarwar as a Human and Nasan Ar as a Awoken, is a Titan Sunbreaker who once served in the Pilgrim Guard and was a friend of Queen Mara Sov before she went searching for The Nine sometime after the Red War.[2] Her encounter with the Nine transformed her into the Emissary, and she now watches over the Trials of the Nine and serves as their liason Queen Mara and The Drifter.


Life as a Human[edit]

Like all of the original Awoken, Orin was originally a Human and crewmember of the Yang Liwei. As with all pasengers of the ship, she was pulled into the singularity formed between the clash between Light and Darkness, and transformed into an Awoken.

Life in The Distributary[edit]

Upon awakening in the Distributary, Orin named herself Nasan Ar. She found a home under a tree and welcomed any other Awoken who would pass by. Eventually, she became the mayor of her village but was reluctant about it. After wandering around taking up random jobs such as being a Corsair for a few weeks, she met Sjur Eido and was introduced to Diasyrm who hired her as a translator. The Theodicy War concluded and the Diasyrm was presumed to be killed. When Mara Sov revealed her plans to the Awoken population in The Distributary, she wanted to go with them to see where she came from in remembrance to her mother.

A Guardian of Humanity[edit]

At some point before the Red War, Orin was in a relationship with another Awoken named Namqi Sen, who perished in an Aphelion attack.

Orin sought out nine Ghosts who had gone beyond the Solar System and inquired after their findings. Receiving only a set of coordinates she left them.[1] She also found several "deep-orbit minds" in the midst of her search, although these may be the same Ghosts.[3]

Emissary of the Nine[edit]

"Welcome, Guardian... to the place where everything dies. And begins anew."
— The Emissary

She soon encountered some of the Nine herself.[4] After warning her of the possibility of going mad from the conversation[5][6][7] and of a potential price as a consequence,[8] they tasked her with finding three "worthy keys".[9] They then commended her for seeking them out, for her resourcefulness in acquiring a ship and her decision to avoid "a golden snake who poses as a god".[10]

However, at some point, Orin was transformed from a Guardian to a "Shell" as Mara Sov calls her, becoming the Emissary of the Nine.

The Emissary was sent to meet with Mara in her court during the third cycle of the Taken curse placed on the Dreaming City. She brought Mara vital information on behalf of the Nine along with an offer. The Guardian known as the Young Wolf arrived as their meeting came to a close, with Mara agreeing to the deal and requesting that the Emissary have an unknown asset move into place somewhere beyond the grave of the first fleet. The Emissary then departed from the Queen's throne world to convey the agreement back to the Nine.[11]

Personality and Traits[edit]

After being transformed into an Emissary, Orin's will is no longer wholly her own, although she does retain some free thought and desire. The physical transformation she underwent also gave her pupil-less glowing eyes and the ability to float in mid-air. Her lips also do not move when she speaks.
