Back when it first released last year, Destiny was knocked a lot for its story and lack of real characters. The Taken King aims at fixing that in a number of ways, one of which is by having the Vanguards play a larger role in the narrative. Cayde-6, the Hunter Vanguard, plays perhaps the most vital role of all, giving you a good amount of quests in the campaign. But he’s not just a quest-giver, he’s also the best character in Taken King, and probably Destiny in general.
He’s got no time for Eris’ mystic mumbo jumbo.
Really, he’s got no time for Eris in general.
He’s also a master observer and joke teller.
Just look at that lovable mug of his.
Plus, he’s voiced by Nathan Fillion, one of the smoothest dudes ever!
Is it even possible to dislike Cayde-6? (No, obviously.)
Destiny: The Taken King's campaign is made almost entirely by Nathan Fillion's awesome performance as Cayde-6.

Oh shut up, you.
CAYDE-6 is a rude guy let me tell you!

Shout out to you, Cayde-6, you awesome bot. You the real MVP.
