Cayde-6

A character out of the video game “Destiny” made by the developers of Bungie. “He” is a tragic figure with a weird sense of humour which sometimes makes him seem not suited for battle. But the moment he gets into a tough situation he becomes that battle-tested warrior he is supposed to be. The number 6 implies that there have already been 5 other versions before him. That is possible due to the fact that he is a humanoid machine.

This explains, why he has this metal face. Since he is wearing a neckerchief – an accessory robots actually don't need – he must still have a sense for aesthetics or was just programmed in this way to look more human.
