Update: On January 18, Bungie responded to fears involving mysterious character deletions with the following statement:
“Maintaining your characters and progress is our top priority. After kicking off a deep dive investigation of a very low number of reports of missing characters out of an abundance of caution, we are confident that no characters or progress were incorrectly lost by our systems.”
Therefore, reports that characters are mysteriously disappearing are likely fabricated.
