I think the idea of a warrior in common terms isn't fitting, unless you prescribe to the broader definition of a warrior such as Musashi described in the book of 5 rings. Then, yes, I feel that fits.
Helmet, yes. Full face, not much detail, the sides, behind the ear have a winged motiff. I will create some sort of drawing as soon as I can manage something fitting.

Like a blacksmith making weapons and armor.
Perhaps some sort of essence of forging? Of creation?
It's entirely possible, in my viewpoint, that one could be an essence or spirit inside a human body. Like a thunderstorm incarnated into human form, etc.
Of course, since I prescribe to some pseudo-form of animism, you could simply be a pair of gauntlets reincarnated.
And, unlike many people, I'm really not afraid to shoot ideas out there. I'm giving you enough credit from what I've seen you write and convey that you'll take any ideas I suggest with a grain of salt and think things through thoroughly. XD
I think there's a lot of usefulness in this response. I have, on occasion been a guardian to my friends, and even to strangers, but I think that just has more to do with my personality, than any sort of calling.
As for being some sort of creator - that fits a lot more...aptly. Though, I haven't any clue what it is I'm supposed to be creating...
Animism, I think fits at some times, though I don't prescribe to EVERYTHING having a spirit - though, I think many things do.

You mention color, do you have any idea on what sort of "sheen" is or is not present? (I am unsure of the value of that, but it seemed something to ask.) -- what came to mind me me was highly reflective, but silver to me is.
Hrm, if not wearing armor then perhaps as you said being the "armor", In that case I would think you'd perhaps feel an affinity towards perhaps an "owner" (my apologies I am lacking decent descriptive terms), or perhaps more "golem" like ?
I don't even know HOW it could be removed. It's a fairly form-fitting affair. Though, as mentioned, I don't really sense any form of self past the armor itself. Which makes me wonder if it even IS armor.
Sheen is high. Like polished chrome.
I discussed terms of created beings on MSN with you earlier, as mentioned there I think the terms golem or robot are not very fittings, though 'construct' could be fitting - I'll have to roll it over in my mind for a while to really decide. As to a creator...if anything, something nebulous.
