The Jovians is the collective name of the Gas Giants that lay beyond the asteroid belt in the Sol System; Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune. During the Golden Age, Humanity had managed to colonize them, however, after the post-cllapse very little is known about their current state, as attempts to revisit these planets have all failed to pass Jupiter. A group known as The Nine now rule over these planets.
Xûr, Agent of the Nine is a Jovian native and has been tasked with remaining in contact with the Guardians, selling them powerful Exotic weapons and armor in exchange for Strange Coins and Motes of Light. According to Xûr, the Jovians were once a Human race who were transformed to an even greater extent than the Awoken. It is implied that the Nine are the ones responsible for this change. He goes on to talk about being composed of cells with memories from the past, and coming from dust. It also appears that the Light causes him pain, indicating the Jovians may be a race tainted by the Darkness.
