Character lore: Cayde-6
It is said that the Awoken were born in the Collapse, descended from those who tried to flee its wrath. Something happened to them out on the edge of the deep black, and they were forever changed.
Today many Awoken live in the distant Reef, aloof and mysterious. But others returned to Earth, where their descendants now fight for the City.
Earthborn Awoken who venture out to the Reef, hoping to learn its secrets, find no special welcome from the reclusive Queen.
Welcome back guardians, today we are continuing with some lore about Cayde-6, specifically his family. If you missed my previous Cayde-6 video I will leave a link below, however essentially, we found a page from Cayde’s journal that revealed that he had partner, whom he had a child with named, or at least nicknamed Ace. I spoke about his previous life as a human, the events leading to him becoming an exo, his constant struggle to reclaim his memory and of course the symbolism of the Ace of Spades.
Following the weekly reset, another page from Cayde’s journal was released and this one involves the Awoken, hence the introduction quote. Thanks to anonpig for the heads up. Whilst the journal entry is quite small, we can gather a lot of lore from it and also use it as a spring board to discuss the awoken in greater detail. The other exciting thing is that we can speculate that each week we will get a new journal entry for a different location, the journal entries are unlocked by finding Cayde’s treasure stashes and Cayde’s stashes rotate locations each week, so I assume there will at least be one journal entry per planet/moon. Really exciting.
I will be livestreaming as soon as this video goes live, and also a massive thank you to all the patreons. Your support has been so amazing, the artist Gammatrap has been able to dedicate even more time to artwork for the channel and is currently working on an Osiris video for everyone to enjoy.
This is myelin games and I hope you enjoy this latest Destiny 2 Lore episode.
