Captain Logan Thackeray is a human guardian and the commanding officer of the Seraph at Divinity's Reach. He was also once a member of the famous adventuring group known as Destiny's Edge. Logan is torn by his dark past and the great pain he feels in his heart, yet still manages to be more of a hero than he ever thought possible. He is descended from the Ascalonian heroes Gwen and Keiran Thackeray.
Along with Rytlock Brimstone and Caithe, who he became acquainted with after a fight with ogres, Logan traveled to the pirate city of Lion's Arch. Collectively known as the Edge of Steel, the three of them fought against other teams in the Lion's Arch arena. This was where Logan first met Queen Jennah and made a pledge to serve as her champion, being enthralled by her beauty. If ever Jennah was to find herself in danger, their magical bond would allow Jennah to call Logan to her aid.
The arena was also where Edge of Steel met the Dragonspawn's Destiny: Eir Stegalkin, Snaff and Zojja. Eir made a bet with Captain Magnus the Bloody Handed, the owner's of the gladiator arena. After Destiny fought and won against Logan and his friends, they became the Destiny's Edge. Although originally enemies (being human and charr), Logan and Rytlock became close friends and regarded each other as brothers; Logan gave Rytlock his most prized possession, a scarf from Queen Jennah, and Rytlock gave Logan a Blood Legion amulet that symbolically made him a part of Rytlock's warband. He also allowed Rytlock to continue wielding Sohothin, despite earlier attempting to win it back for the humans.
Logan and his friends accumulated victories over the Elder Dragons' champions, becoming legendary among humans, charr and norn in the process. During Destiny's Edge's attempt to fight the Elder Dragon Kralkatorrik in the Crystal Desert Queen Jennah summoned Logan to defend her, as Ebonhawke was under siege by the Elder Dragon's twisted minions. He hurried to her defense and fought off the Ogre Revolt, leaving Destiny's Edge to carry out their plans without him. This decision came at a high cost, however, as Kralkatorrik survived and Snaff was killed during the battle. Despite the cost he remains loyal to Queen Jennah, although the guilt of abandoning his friends haunts him.
After their failure, the group disbanded. Logan became a captain of the Seraph in Divinity's Reach, while Rytlock regretted befriending a human and served in the Black Citadel.
Logan prefers fighting with a hammer as his weapon, complemented with guardian magic. After the death of his brother, however, Logan takes Dylan's sword as his own, though he uses a mace from time to time.
