From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
The Technocrat's Assistants are a group of Captains that belong to the House of Salvation. They are tasked by Praksis, the Technocrat to go out in the field and study on certain things/areas, presumably the Cruxes of Darkness or Vex-related objectives. These captains wear the least armor of their peers, likely due to their role as field researchers as opposed to outright combatants, and are almost entirely snow-white in appearance. They feature quilted scarves with sparsely furred, flat collars, armor composed primarily of pleated and pocketed cloth, and a white mark off their belt like that of a Titan that bears their House symbol. Thin, white hoses connect to their Stasis arms.
