32. Eris Morn

No one has suffered like Eris Morn. No one else has fallen so far into the depths of the Hive and returned. Half mad and weeping black goo from her bound eyes (all three of them), she's far from the most cheerful Guardian in the Tower. "An eye for an eye, you see. The Hive took my eyes. I took theirs in return," she moans. She’s probably the last Guardian you’d grumble to about getting a cold and she might be a little obsessed with eradicating the Hive, but her obsession does end up saving humanity, so there’s that.

Iconic moment: Even Halloween isn’t grim enough for Eris: "Am I supposed to celebrate death? It's a time of mourning our lost, yet everyone is... smiling. Candy will not save you! Sugar is a fickle friend. People say I am disturbing... Happy Festival of the Lost, I suppose."
