You probably have watched the trailer for Destiny 2 and if you have not played the first game then you must be wondering why is everyone is making a huge deal out of Cayde-6, or who and what is he?
Allow us to explain why Cayde-6 is a fan favorite and why are Destiny fans are going crazy for him. Part of the reason for Cayde-6’s popularity is that the character is voiced by none other than Nathan Fillion.
What And Who Is Cayde-6
Cayde-6 is a member of an Exo race that were built long before the Collapse. He apparently seems to be human at some point but was converted into an Exo for he owed a large debt to someone.
Cayde-6 is one of the three Vanguard leaders who are masters of their respective class. Cayde-6 belongs to the hunter class and in Destiny he can be found selling Hunter armor sets in the Tower.
Cayde-6 is in charge of assigning and tracking the bounties on high-value targets. In Destiny, he is the one you assigns you to take out the escaped Archon priest Aksor in the Winter’s Run strike and the Psion Flayers of the Dust Palace strike.
However, his role is very limited in Destiny until The Taken King expansion. In this expansion Cayd-6 really shows his true colors and charming personality much like Nathan Fillion himself.
He is the one who goes behind the backs of his fellow Vanguards to help recover a stealth drive he stole from Rasputin, which is an AI called a Warmind that was built to defend Earth during the Collapse. Long story short, he is a man of many talents.
Furthermore, Cayde-6 is the one with the most intriguing personality in Destiny. If the trailer for Destiny 2 is any indication then we might be seeing more of Cayde-6 in Destiny 2 compared to the first game.
With the aforementioned information, you might be wondering if Cayde-6 and Vanguards will play a bigger role in Destiny 2.
Well if the trailers are any indication then Cayde-6 and Vanguards will play an important role in the upcoming Destiny 2.
