Character Bio – Ana Bray
With the potential leak of the second expansion for Destiny 2, Gods of Mars, I thought it would be a good idea to check out one of the key characters who will supposedly be starring as a new NPC, Ana Bray.
Ana Bray was mentioned as a character in Destiny 1 originally. She was a Hunter and a member of the House of Bray. She fought in the Battle of Twilight Gap wearing her cloak, Strength of the Pack. During the quest to obtain No Time To Explain Guardians find her bracelet in a time disturbance while investigating on behalf of Future War Cult.
When you chat to Lord Shaxx he has this to say about Ana Bray, “You want another story about the Twilight Gap? Ana Bray, the Hunter. We all dug deep that day. We all touched the Light in ways we never thought we could. Or should. Ana, though. When she fired the Gun, where her Golden blasts hit home, she left behind the pools of light. Like splashes of sunlight that burned and burned.”
An item can be found in The Tower in the aftermath of the Red War in Destiny 2. This item is a heavily redacted diary of Ana Bray’s which your Ghost has this to say about, “Looks like a journal: Ana Bray. But I can’t tell who – Pretty much the entire thing is redacted. And there are whole pages missing. Something about all this seems… wrong. Am I worrying too much?”
There is also a mention of Ana Bray in a mission on Io, and on the Warmind Vault mission a terminal has been scrubbed by a user named Bray. These may relate to Ana Bray or another member of the House of Bray.
The House of Bray, of which Ana Bray was a member, was a distinguished family of humans who lived at the height of the Golden Age. Clovis Bray I founded the family and the Mars-based corporation of the same name, and had a son named Clovis Bay II. Other members of the house led illustrious lives, adding to the name and reputation of the House of Bray. Ana Bray is the only known survivor of the House of Bray since The Collapse since it is unknown if any other members survived the City Age. However, Ana Bray is a Guardian, touched by the Light of the Traveller, and therefore could have died during The Collapse only to be brought back to life.
Ana Bray is thought to have died during the Battle of Twilight Gap, but it seems as though she may have lived if she’s going to be in the second Destiny 2 Expansion. The Expansion focuses on two Warminds, one on Mars and one on Earth that is kidnapped somehow. Since Ana Bray has a mention in a time disturbance it could be that she, like Osiris, is not dead but exploring or lost in time. Let us know what you think in the comments.
