Ok, so I just finished reading basically the entire story of warframe start to finish, not including the prequel found in the warframe comics. I am almost certain that I have found a realistic yet interesting way that the worm queen would be able to build her very own warframe, and on top of that, one with no memories, emotions, or even a soul to begin with. Ok, here it is, tell me what you think:
The Grineer Queens have been monitoring all infestation experiments, being sure to stay informed on all breakthroughs in that regard, both new and old. They even had eyes on other factions. They used Grineer spies to keep tabs on everything. In places that their Grineer spies could not reach they had hackers tap into enemy records and security cameras remotely.
When the Elder Queen died, the Worm Queen knew that she must, not only be revived, but be revived the right way, and she could only think of a select few that were up to the task. Unfortunately, there was no possible way that she could reach Ballis, who was one of the first to use the Helminth strain of infested on humans in order to create warframes, he is a bit indisposed at the time. Luckily she had 2 capable and experienced scientists/ doctors already at her disposal, so she tried to first make due with that, because the alternative was far more troublesome.
You may be wondering how the Worm Queen will be able to create the helminth strain of infested. Well the Grineer Queens were once Orokin. Both the worm queen and elder queen have overheard bits and pieces of the warframe building process from Ballis’ conversations with Silvana, which turned out to be all the information the worm queen needed to construct her own helminth strain, with the help of her 2 grineer scientists.
The first Grineer doctor was named “Dr. Tengus”. Dr. Tengus has ample experience with infested experimentation, he is even responsible for having created Grineer Gouls.
The second Grineer scientist was named “Tyl Regor”. Tyl Regor is an expert reasercher in cloning technology. Much of his research can translate almost seamlessly into being applied on infested strains.
Both of these Grineer intellectuals worked very closely in attempting to find, not a solution, but the solution to the elder queen’s ailments. They were provided with a private lab, lab assistants, and any other resources them may require. The Worm Queen herself also worked along side them. They worked day and night with little rest, accept for the Worm Queen, who simply came and went as she pleased. They worked and worked but got few results. Eventually the Worm Queen realized that they were making little progress, and so desperate measures needed to be taken.
Alad V once studied the infested in a search for some success in his swiftly declining career. While unsuccessful in that regard, he was able to develop a strain of infested called the Mutalist strain. This strain of infested has the ability to infect inorganic beings. This is exactly what they were missing.
With a combination of threats and bribery, the Worm Queen was able to convince Alad V to lend his expertise.
While Alad V did eventually help the Worm Queen in the search for a new body for the Elder Queen, his disgust for the Grineer made it impossible for him to work alongside them. He would work separately, then provide the Worm Queen with the results. Eventually, with a combination of Mutalist and Helminth infested strains they were able to apply that mixture of disease to kuva and create Guen.
But Alad V was still opposed to the Grineer Queens having such a powerful weapon, so for each blueprint he helped develop, he made sure to keep a copy of it hidden away, somewhere that the queens would never find it, but unfortunately he had no part in constructing Guen’s main blueprint, that was created by the worm Queen and her scientists before Alad V got involved.
When Alad V finally got the chance he contacted the tenno, explained what was happening, and revealed where the first blueprint was hidden. Although Alad V hated the tenno as well, right now they were the lesser evil, and it was in his best interest to make sure that the Elder Queen stays dead.
Later the Worm Queen will reveal to both Alad V and the tenno, that she knew Alad V was plotting against her from the very beginning. It was all part of her plan. A way to lure the operator into a trap and have one less tenno to worry about.
