I just wanted to note that where ot says "tattoos unknown if these are nateral or not" that in E3 bungie noted that tattoos will br mark of custumization. So you should fix that. It IS verified to be unnatreral for the race. Caude many pictures and cinxept art show awojen qith clean skin.—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Thanks, I'll take care of it.--Mythic (talk) 19:46, 1 September 2013 (EDT)

So in the Gameinformer article, it says that "Humans...are survivors of the Collapse picking up the pieces of civilization. The Awoken also survived the Collapse, but were forever changed; they appear otherwordly and aloof." Does that mean that the Awoken were once human but changed after the Collapse, or that they were a separate race but changed after the Collapse? Ace2891 (talk) 18:59, 7 December 2013 (EST)

I think it's the former, but that's just a guess. The wording is ambiguous. Always use the DMR. This is craZboy557, signing off. 19:25, 7 December 2013 (EST)
I think I may have found evidence that the Awoken were once human, but changed after the Collapse.

So, it’s not just humanity in this city, is that right? There’s some other ally species? I’m not sure what you call them. Is that a fair way to talk about them, or are they part of humanity at this point? And who are they?

I’m excited for players to slowly learn and talk about that over time. But yeah, it’s not just people, it’s the things that people have become, and it’s the things that people have built, and it’s other things. Everything’s all together. I’d like to hold some of that back, because I think some of that is going to be the the deep history of the world – and where these allies came from, even where the city came from, why it’s there. It’s going to be a fun thing for people to discover. Ace2891 (talk) 20:46, 13 December 2013 (EST)


Now that we have the grimoires, is it safe to say the awoken's homeworld is the reef? OmgHAX! (talk) 09:54, 3 July 2014 (EDT)

Technically Earth would still be their homeworld arguably. That said, I think the homeworld entry is iffy enough, and likely a holdover from Halopedia. Every race either has Earth as a homeworld or that homeworld is "unknown."--Hawki (talk) 20:48, 3 July 2014 (EDT)
Would "Stronghold" be a better entry then? We know that the vex, cabal and hive have clearly defined home bases. OmgHAX! (talk) 21:54, 3 July 2014 (EDT)
Probably something along the lines of "Focal World(s)," as "Stronghold" suggests something more akin to a structure, and the races have plenty of those (Hive=Hellmouth, humans=City, etc.). It would be more a case of listing what places the race is/was found on. So for Awoken it would be the Reef (primary), and list Earth also. For Hive, it would be the moon (primary) and Earth (per that wizard who came from the moon XD). Given that the game hasn't gone beyond the solar system yet, and probably won't for awhile (if at all), I don't think listing worlds would have too many problems.--Hawki (talk) 22:17, 3 July 2014 (EDT)

Once Human?[edit]

Isnt it pretty much confirmed they were once human? I believe it outright says so in the strategy guide, but I think that Xur also makes a comment that makes this almost undeniable at this point. 16:02, 19 September 2014 (EDT)
