Destiny Wiki

KD-6 is shocked as Moon is kicked out of the ring. But using force to enter the house is dangerous because after killing some slaves the enemy decides to kill himself to attack Serena. Then Keith came home and beat up this poor kid. Died there.

When her friend Andal dies in a car accident, Kate meets Mas. Unfortunately, he lost the competition and had to start a new business.

Baby Oryx visits the famous Gilmore and gives him advice.

Along the way, the boy finds ancient history books and hidden weapons. I found the entrance to Skatteøen in 1883.

, he lost the bet and was forced to accept the challenge of becoming the new Hunter Vanguard.

Admitted and dutiful, Cade fought with the Vanguard after the death of his friend Endal Brask at the hands of Tanix Scudder. Unfortunately for Teves, Glimmer was one of the few night watchers until Oryx entered the sun.

Along the way, Cade discovers rare weapons and secrets, as well as stories and clues about his past. One of the secrets is a copy of Treasure Island 1883. The book was printed in a private library along with Cade's notes.

Death and Legacy[]

At the beginning of Forsaken, Cayde, Petra Venj, and the Guardian attempted to stop a riot at the Prison of Elders. Cayde was separated from the others and found himself facing off against a horde of Scorn. Although he was injured in the fight, Cayde managed to beat the horde that was attacking him. Cayde's ghost, Sundance, was then suddenly shot and destroyed by Pirrha, the Rifleman, right as she had begun healing him. Cayde, now vulnerable, faced down the Scorn Barons and was smashed through a wall by Reksis Vahn, the Hangman. He eventually regained consciousness and was greeted by Uldren Sov. Still weak and powerless, and after a short conversation, Uldren dealt the final blow by shooting Cayde with his own weapon, the Ace of Spades.

Cayde-6 has five memorials dedicated to him in the Tower:

  • A framed picture of him smiling and giving a double thumbs up in the spicy ramen shop.
  • An engraving of the Ace of Spades that can be found right behind Zavala.
  • His own cloak located behind Amanda Holliday.
  • His pet chicken, the Colonel, standing where Cayde stood as a vendor in the Tower.
  • A new Cayde 6 memorial at the Tower near Zavala.

In Forsaken, it is revealed that Cayde hid 10 caches all throughout the moon Titan with pre-recorded messages addressed to the individuals whom he believed might have been the one who killed him, or that Cayde otherwise knew on a personal level (many of the recipients falling into both categories). These people included Eris Morn, Taniks the Scarred, The Drifter, Petra Venj, the creators of the Deep Stone Crypt, Suraya Hawthorne, any Hunter who killed him, Zavala, Ikora Rey, and the playable Guardian.


The teaser for The Final Shape reveals Cayde on a mysterious planet with Ikora, sitting in front of a campfire, where it seems like Ikora is telling him about everything he missed after his death during the events of Forsaken. It is left unclear if Cayde is actually present and alive once more or simply a figment of Ikora's imagination as she prepares to head off on a mission.

In this teaser he appears to be charged with a large amount of light, as his hand cannon, Ace of Spades, is pieced together with light and his eyes are glowing with it. This theory is reinforced by the card, Legend: The Black Garden. The direct quote is: "I am Pujari. These are the visions I have had of the Black Garden.

The Traveler moved across the face of the iron world. It opened the earth and stitched shut the sky. It made life possible. In these things there is always symmetry. Do you understand? This is not the beginning but it is the reason.

The Garden grows in both directions. It grows into tomorrow and yesterday. The red flowers bloom forever.

There are gardeners now. They came into the garden in vessels of bronze and they move through the groves in rivers of thought.

This is the vision I had when I leapt from the Shores of Time and let myself sink:

I walked beneath the blossoms. The light came from ahead and the shadows of the flowers were words. They said things but I will not write them here.

At the end of the path grew a flower in the shape of a Ghost. I reached out to pluck it and it cut me with a thorn. I bled and the blood was Light.

The Ghost said to me: You are a dead thing made by a dead power in the shape of the dead. All you will ever do is kill. You do not belong here. This is a place of life.

The Traveler is life, I said. You are a creature of Darkness. You seek to deceive me.

But I looked behind me, down the long slope where the blossoms tumbled in the warm wind and the great trees wept sap like blood or wine, and I felt doubt.

When my Ghost raised me from the sea there was a thorn-cut in my left hand and it has not healed since."

In this card Pujari bleeds light when in the Black Garden. It is possible that Cayde is also in the Black Garden, and that he has not gone back to the real world since his ghost, Sundance, was destroyed in the beginning of Forsaken. This is a theory. It is likely not correct.


In The Final Shape, Cayde was thought to be brought back into the fray by the traveler, however it was explained later on that he was actually brought back by Crow's wish.

You first simply find him playing a harmonica(what a Cayde thing to do.), which he eventually throws at you and then realizes who you are.

(I was editing this at school and did not have time to do much, so wiki writers, do your thing.)

("I suggest leaving that little edit of yours the way it is. Sounds much cooler than it was." - Cayde)


Despite his diligence to his work, Cayde longed for the opportunity to get back into combat (The cause of how he died, as he was murdered during a mission at the Prison of Elders, the event which started Destiny 2: Forsaken). After speaking with Cayde-6 in Destiny, he would sometimes say things like “I need to get back in the field.” or even whisper “Hey, take me with you.” which further reinforced this idea. He was also a gambler, placing bets on the outcome of several events. Despite being a skilled Hunter, Cayde is often facetious and makes flippant remarks, even in the face of his own demise. However, when aggravated, he abandons his carefree demeanor and becomes more thoughtful and even vengeful. He remembers that when he was resurrected as a Guardian, he awoke to nothing but sadness, loneliness, and pain; the destroyed journal he kept of his life before becoming a Guardian is the only hint as to who he was.

Cayde's personality before he was turned into an Exo is unknown, as he was transformed right around The Collapse, supposedly being part of a deal to get him out of debt. He does not remember the facility where he was transformed well, other than that it was a cold and dark place with pain.
