Why we care: Generally speaking, people don’t enjoy being shot in the face. It’s been known to cause bleeding, disfigurement, headaches, and, in some instances, death. Face McShooty spits in the face of all of that. He wants to be shot. He lives for it.
Our best guess: The truth is that the Psychos of Borderlands also boast a very active and fulfilling personal life. There are whole communities of Psycho families--flaming husbands, badass wives, and midget children--going about their daily lives, attending their jobs and gossiping around the water cooler about what’s really under Handsome Jack’s mask.
Face is one of these average, everyday Psychos whose personal life took a turn for the worse. His home is being demolished to make way for an Iridium plant, his fiancé is leaving him for his best friend Crotch O’Punchme, and his pet skag ran away from home last night. It’s a sad story, really--just a hard one to take seriously with that goofy name of his.
