Revenant is a Stasis-based Hunter subclass. It was released in the Beyond Light expansion in Destiny 2.

Overview

The Hunter Revenant embodies the idea of slowing the battle around them with their Stasis powers. Fitting in with the "ninja" archetype, they utilize a variety of ninjutsu-themed abilities including throwing shurikens and kamas formed from Stasis energy to debilitate their enemies' movements to the Hunter's perception; essentially slowing the molecular activity of their foes until they are frozen and shatter on contact. The Hunter also utilize a dive that shatters crystals and frozen enemies on impact and passive abilities that could spawn Stasis shards on melee kills and enhance the effects of their grenades.[1]

Lore

"And my vanquisher will read that book, seeking the weapon, and they will come to understand me, where I have been and where I was going."
The following is a verbatim transcription of an official document for archival reasons. As the original content is transcribed word-for-word, any possible discrepancies and/or errors are included.

A Fallen Captain stalks his prey through the barrens of Europa, Servitor at his back. The wind kicks up shimmering plumes of frost; he doesn't see the frozen kama hurtling towards him. It strikes with a deafening crack; the Servitor is gone. The Captain flees for cover, but it's too late — he is frozen in a crystalline prison.

His battle cry freezes in his throat; there is only deafening silence. He sees a shadow approaching, cloaked in the ice and whirling snow, but it vanishes as quickly as it appeared. Fear grips him as he scans the white wastes.

A second kama pierces the ice shelf. Biting whirlwinds erupt and tear at his frozen body. He catches a glimpse of the shadow in the squall, rifle in hand. The hunt has ended; he shatters in the wind.
