"This was our world, our solar system. We were here first. And no matter what the darkness brings, we will be here at the dawn."
——Grimoire card blurb

Humanity is a sapient species native to the planet Earth.[1]

Overview

The remaining humans are all that survive of a race whose reach once spanned the Solar System, having descended from those who endured the apocalyptic Collapse.[2] Since then, they have fought to restore our toppled civilization to its Golden Age splendor[3] — first by the legendary Iron Lords,[4] and more recently by the Guardians.[5]

History

During the 21st Century, humanity made first contact with the mysterious entity that would later come to be known as the Traveler, the arrival of which ushered in a centuries-long Golden Age that saw humans colonize the newly remade worlds of Sol including Mercury, Venus, Mars,[6] and even the moons of Jupiter and Saturn.[7][8]

But this Golden Age would not last. Unbeknownst to humanity, the Traveler had an ancient enemy;[6] a powerful Darkness that precipitated the Collapse and nearly wiped out mankind,[9] if not for the intervention of the Traveler who sacrificed itself to push back the assailing Darkness.[10] And with its dying breath, the Traveler created Ghosts[11] to seek out those worthy to carry on its task.[12]

In the dark decades after the Collapse,[13] Humans, Exos, and Awoken found the Traveler where it made its final stand and built the City[14]—the last bastion of mankind—beneath its shadow.[15] And from an age of chaos and death began the City Age.[16]

Though its tenuous peace[17] lasted for the better part of a hundred years,[18] the City Age would ultimately come to a shattering end in the wake of the devastating Cabal invasion; with the heroic deeds of The Guardian bringing an end to the Red Legion's siege[19] and marking the dawn of a new Golden Age.[20]
