From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
The Pilgrim Guard is a Titan order of the Last City. It is the oldest of all Titan orders, having been formed to protect refugees seeking safety beneath the Traveler when the City was still being built. Legends say that the very first Titans assumed this responsibility during the Dark Age, before the idea of the City was even conceived. Today, in addition to guiding refugees to the City, the Pilgrim Guard is dedicated to defending and helping its people.
