Owner of The Last Word

 
"Palamon raised me from there. The family I call my own - called my own - cared for me as if I was their natural born son. And life was good. Being the only life I knew, my judgment is skewed, and it wasn't easy - pocked by loss as it was - but I would call it good. Until, of course, it wasn't. Until two men entered my world. One a light. The other the darkest shadow I would ever know. "
—Shin

Shin Malphur was a renegade Hunter and the protege of Jaren Ward. He carried on his legacy, taking up his mentor's weapon, The Last Word, as his own.

Biography

Shin Malphur was once a boy living in the refugee village of Palamon, raised by his adoptive father after his biological parents were killed.[1] After Jaren Ward first arrived, Shin immediately bonded with the Guardian and became close friends soon after.[2] When Palamon was destroyed, Shin followed Jaren to hunt down the attacker. Jaren perished, but his Ghost found Shin, and discovered that Shin carried the Traveler's Light.[3] From that day, Shin became a Guardian himself, and hunted down the infamous villain Dredgen Yor at Dwindler's Ridge.[4]

When the Shadows of Yor began emerging in the Crucible, Shin approached Ikora Rey to express his frustration with lack of response by the Vanguard. While Ikora shared Shin's concerns, she noted that he might be too close to the situation to see it objectively. Shin argued that he had seen videos of matches from Widow's Court and warned that the Shadows were playing with death.[5][6][7]

Trivia

Shin has the distinction of being the only known Guardian who was not previously dead; he appears to have been born blessed by the Traveler's Light, as both Jaren and his Ghost could tell upon their first meeting that he was special. Shin is also the only Guardian to use another Guardian's ghost.
