"We've had to survive without the Light all our lives."
—Suraya Hawthorne[1]

Suraya Hawthorne[2] is a human female sniper who left the Last City as a teenager to seek a new purpose. By the events of Destiny 2, in the wake of the Red Legion invasion, she has discovered a way to lead humanity into an improved way of life.[3] She has taken up residence in the newly established Farm in the European Dead Zone, working closely in conjunction with the Vanguard throughout the Red War.


Hawthorne gives players their Clan banner as soon as they join a clan, which tracks their clan progress per season. As soon as a clan completes a challenge together, she rewards all members with legendary engrams.

Cayde-6 and Hawthorne[1]

Hawthorne is a woman with medium tan skin, sporting a circular pattern of dots atop her face. She is shown to be very ambitious, earned through years of surviving on her own without the Light, able to stand her ground against the Cabal. She has a companion falcon named Louis.[1]

Suraya possess a conflicted view of the Last City and the Guardians; while she respects the Guardians for their abilities and their priority of defending people, she finds the City and its walls to be equivalent of a prison as she has enjoyed the open freedom of the wild. While she aided the survivors of the Last City and the crippled Guardians, she was originally against the idea of reclaiming the City or even going against enemy forces, preferring to protect those at the Farm.

Despite this mindset, Suraya aided the Vanguard in their efforts in reclaiming the Last City, becoming instrumental in getting their forces through the Wall undetected. She saved Commander Zavala from death at the hands of a Red Legion Legionary, who showed his gratitude by officially calling her a Guardian. From then on, Suraya took residence at the new Tower, learning about the Last City and its history while overseeing missions in the European Dead Zone, as well as moderating the newly established Guardian Clans.
