Biography[edit]

Life on Europa[edit]

This section needs expansion. You can help Destinypedia by expanding it with information from Lore:Your Friend, Micah Abram.

Micah moved to Eventide at the age of 10, where he attended school while his parents Hector and Wesley Abram worked at Bray Innovations.[1] While living on Europa, he wrote letters to the Traveler and collected penguin plushies, all of which he named after important figures from Golden Age history.

During his stay on Europa, Micah had strange dreams about being an Exo. In the dream, he was standing in the middle of a frozen lake underneath a dark sky with single moon.[4] As the dream repeated over the nights to come, he began to jump towards the moon, each jump bringing him ever higher. When his leaps finally brought him closer to the atmosphere, he realized the moon was the Traveler, who had been whispering things to him.[5] The dream ends after 3 months of repetition, when he finally breaks the atmosphere, and a cryptic message is delivered to him: "Are you sure you know what you think you know?"[6]

At an unknown point after these messages, Micah would become a female Exo and would be reset ten times, escaping Europa before or during the Vex invasion. As an Exo, her dream about the Deep Stone Crypt contains two older men. Every fiftieth dream, she encounters a paternal figure (likely Wesley), who rests his hand on her shoulder in the middle of her fighting and tells her "You just need to get acclimated. It's colder here than on Mars." Every hundredth dream, she finds a different man in an armchair, writing on a notepad and reminding her that "Dreams are messages from deep inside your mind. Until you figure out the message, the dream repeats."[3] This latter message is identical to advice Hector gave to her in her former life when she dreamed of the lake.[4] Micah-10 died somewhere on Earth, was eventually resurrected as a Guardian.

Protector of Ghosts[edit]

"These last few months we've enjoyed the pleasant absence of Cyrell. Now I feel more confident that we lost him in Australis. If he tries to hurt my Ghosts, I will rip his throat out."
— Micah-10

During the early City Age, Micah-10 was an Earth-bound Guardian, having no ship capable of exiting atmosphere. She made a habit of gathering whole groups of Ghosts to herself, so she could protect them and help them in their search. She was often menaced by Cyrell, a Lightbearer who believed that Guardians should never have been resurrected and that the Ghosts needed to be destroyed before they found their Guardians. Micah also frequently encountered Ghosts who believed that their Guardians were offworld, and although she believed that many Guardians were waiting to be discovered on Earth, she resolved to aid them one day. She maintained contact with Conar, a fellow Hunter and friend, although he only responded to one out of every five of her messages.[7]

While escorting a pack of Ghosts she was pursued by Cyrell in the Australis, but Micah managed to successfully evade the Ghost killer and enjoyed several months of peace with her pack. Most of her Ghosts found their Guardians, and while she was happy for them, she was saddened by the departure of her friends. The second-to-last Ghost in her pack resurrected another Hunter who took the name Andal Brask and began journeying to the Last City across the Pacific Ocean. This left Micah with only one other Ghost besides her own, who was named Pup and never spoke. Micah sent a message to Hunter Vanguard Tallulah Fairwind to update her on the Ghost pack and warn Tallulah to keep an eye on Andal when he arrived, as Micah suspected he would be trouble. She informed her superior that she planned to resupply in the Cosmodrome before heading north into the Russian steppes, which were only explored by Conar. Micah also planned to look for a spaceworthy jumpship in the Cosmodrome to take a pack of Ghosts to other planets. She ended the message by telling Tallulah not to feel too cooped up in the Tower and that she was doing good work as the Vanguard, although Micah was glad she was not the one stuck with the job.[7]

Defender of Coyote[edit]

After meeting Conar in Old Russia, Micah-10 and her friend found a village called Coyote and volunteered to help defend the town from Fallen raiders from the House of Kings. Micah found three other Hunters who were willing to repay favors or get paid to help defend Coyote; Nadiya, Lee-4, and Therin Vai, although none were happy with the difficult job. One of the villagers, Himura Shinobu, asked Micah what their chances against the Fallen were. She gave her a speech talking about how Guardians had a duty to protect people no matter what, although Shinobu saw through Micah's bravado and knew they stood little hope.[8]

Micah collected 9 penguins in total, which were named:
