Bungie has officially shed some details about the upcoming Dark Below expansion character named Eris.

Who is Eris?
Eris will be an integral part of Destiny’s Dark Below expansion. Eris will be located in the Tower and will guide you through the new story missions.
Bungie says that “this [Dark Below] story is going to be her story.”
Eris is the Greek goddess of chaos, strife and discord. Her name is the equivalent of Latin Discordia, which means discord. Eris is also considered by some to be the 10th Planet in our solar system.
In an interview with PlayStation, Eric Osborne describes Eris as “creepy.”
Players are spending a lot of time in the Tower, so we took the opportunity to craft a new character, Eris, that players can receive quests and missions from in The Dark Below. Not only does she offer up unique bounties and rewards, she also has a story to tell about The Hive and their evil intentions. She’s also pretty creepy!
Crota’s End Raid
There’s also more story content as well as a new Strike called Will of Crota (plus The Undying Mind if you’re on PlayStation), which you can read more about here.
Bungie has said that they’ve used the feedback to improve the Dark Below story missions. Bungie is taking a “very different approach” with the Dark Below story, saying that it’s more “loot driven and story driven” with faster pace, more action, and exposition.
There’s also a wide array of new items coming, some of which (there’s more!) you can view below:
