Baphomet; The Betrayer - Infested Boss [FULL 3D RENDER BY RAZIX! - 11/26/16]

Recommended Posts

That reminds me, Silverbones with juggernaut out, do you see the mount Merrihem as a variant of those?

Maby with other weapons but still in the same family I mean.

Yes, more than likely. I may have to do a bit of a redesign in the end.

 

It's okay, I need more excuses to draw this guy.

For a boss stage I'm thinking of a giant coliseum/arena with multiple battle platforms thats been overrun by the infestation.

 

For the fight itself I'm not too sure, but I do have a vague idea for one. Since he is a healer I'm thinking that in addition to healing, what if he mutates Infested and they gain new attacks/abilities? This does tie in with the boss fight which I'll explain now.

 

For the boss fight, since he seems to be more of a support frame I think he should ride a giant Charger, kinda like Phorid minus the sentience. For weapons I think he should have some kind of Infested Longsword (kinda like the Mire, only bigger/longer and more blade-like.) and maybe an Infested Rifle for Phase two.

 

Phase One: He will run around the arena on his Charger, which has been mutated to be bigger, faster, and all around stronger than Phorid. Unlike Phorid this Charger does not have missiles, but instead will have something akin to an Infested Sniper Rifle which it will use to shoot at you when you're a certain distance away. This sniper will deal high damage and will poison you.

 

Baphomet will be mainly using his sword at this time. When the Charger gets close he will swing at you, dealing poison damage along with melee damage if he hits you. If you are far away he will slash the air with his sword, which will send horizontal energy beams at you. He will also have an attack where he slams his sword into the ground and making the area around him highly poisonous.

 

Phase Two: Will have Baphomet slam his sword into the ground and make the complete lower area poisonous, shrink down the Charger abit, and replace his sword with the Charger's rifle. The Charger will now start wall-running and jumping on to different platforms, moving away if you get too close. Baphomet will now be aggressively shooting you, forcing you to constantly be on the move. At half health Baphomet will start poisoning platforms. After beating him he and the Charger fall to the bottom area into a pool of poison/infection.

 

But suddenly the pool starts rising up, and you hear a loud buzzing noise. Baphomet flies into view, still seated on his Charger, which he has mutated to have wings and his sword, which is now on the Charger's head like some kind of horn. So starts Phase Three.

 

Phase Three will have you constantly moving upwards across platforms, stairs, ramps, you name it, all the while the pool of infection is rising up like a volcano. During this phase Baphomet will still be shooting with the rifle, which has changed into some kind of Infested Rocket Launcher (think Ogris), and the Charger will now attempt stabbing/sweeping fly-bys. The Charger will also swipe his head and shoot energy waves much like Baphomet did in Phase One, only bigger.

There is no time limit, though the pool can catch up to you, and its an automatic death if it does. If you die and use a revive you'll be revived about 5-6 platforms above it's current level. As Baphomet's health goes down the pool starts rising faster, and he gets more aggressive.

 

The fight ends with you reaching the uppermost point of the coliseum and him crashing down in front of you before fading away like the Infested do.

Yes

MAKE IT HAPPEN DE!!!

[all of this is to be read in Tyl Regors voice ;P makes it sexier]

 

SilverBones, You are an amazing creator, such thought and love went into this concept....it almost brings a tear to my eye that he's been here so long and DE has not made a move on him, Im sure both you and him would be flattered by the arrival of such a destructive and bloody beautiful boss for the tenno to fight, I will make it a mission to get as many people as possible to see your work here and get the word out to DE, I think I can speak for all of us when I say, We want to fight Baphomet to the death and we want it bad.

 

Please continue to design him and add/remove/tweak him to the point of infested perfection, so that one day we may have the honor or dueling the monster you have created and will willingly duel many times over for no more reason then we love to!

This idea looks AMAZING but sadly there is very small chance of happening, why ? because of destiny's oryx, taken king, your idea looks kina similar to taken king(both look kinda like space demons) which is ironic since your idea was first. People will say DE is copying destiny if they put in their own "space demon" in game.

Thus is so cool, and fits into lore rather nicely. The whole "lord of the infestation" deal is awesome. Might I recommend him starting with sniping you with poison rounds while his dog attacks you and when you kill the dog he draws his sword and goes to town on you?

As an evolving fan-favorite concept, this has always struck me as an excellent piece. Artwork, story, lines, voice-acting. All cool.

 

But where in the blue hell are the abilities? 

 

If they are on some post I missed, someone please link me to them.

 

If they don't exist yet...can I suggest creating them in order to bring the concept to life (beyond a beloved fan-concept)?

 

I don't know about anyone else, but I kind of would like to know how the boss would attack and how, and perhaps have a quest. 

 

He exists a little bit in a vacuum for me, and that would make him more tangible.

 

Overall, a very aesthetically and lore rich concept. Good job.

You know, Bones, I remember a while back you had been kinda struggling to find a place for this guy story wise... With the Jordas Golem's introduction of the Infestation as a proper character-thing I think I might have a suggestion:

 

This guy is an Infestation-created Warframe, a proper attempt by them to match the power of the treacherous flesh (Tenno) that constantly strikes at and defiles them. Something tied fully to the Infestation, sharing its mind and lacking any resistance that the likes of Jordas put up, but having all the power of the most powerful consumptions the Infestation has ever made. With the knowledge they gained from assimilating Alad V they were able to create their own monstrosity, a creature to match the Tenno and put an end to the purge of flesh once and for all: Baphomet.

 

"You are our flesh; we are your form."

I have allways liked the ties to the Orokin. What you propose removes that entirely.

Anyway, what I want for a true villain for the infested is like Queen of Blades. Created by the Hive, but free of them and ultimately dominating them.

"We must have Unity, Tenno. We must have freedom. As one, there will be peace at last. All will be protected within Us. No fear. No regret. No conflict."

I very much enjoy the concept of this singular-multiplicital identity the Infestation has. I'd rather see that particular character - the Infestation itself - grow and expand now that it's been fully introduced than create another proxy identity through which it would act. It's got a lot of potential, it just has to be utilized, and i think having just another Alad V show up and become a medium between the player and it would just squander a lot of that.

 

But it's just an opinion.

Well, Baphomet would actually command it and shape it. Alad V was more s puppet.

Which I feel as being just sort of unnecessary when we have THE Infestation as a character all it's own, with personality, goal, all of that, able to do that kind of work already to some extent. Giving it a proper from through which to communicate with us is all that's needed, the character's already there.

Well Alad and Jordas shows that some kind of limited individuality is possible.

From the in-process-of-being-infested individual. And, as I said earlier, I think we don't really need that sort of medium anymore now that we've MET the Infestation itself - albeit through Jordas. Give the Infestation a proper, completely-it means of communicating with us and let the character speak for itself.

So what then is Baphomet? Just an extention of the Hivemind? Not really a npc but rather a warframe that the infestation as a Character, uses?

Precisely. A vessel through which the Infestation fights against us on terms we don't usually have to fight against in life-or-death - ourselves.

Here's the thing: what if the Tenno are more than just the Warframe? The hints that have been dropped to us concerning Oro seem to indicate that the Tenno itself is more a kind of energy being merged with the Warframe, and that the Tenno is the one who grants access to the Void powers for the Warframe to use.

 

I find it more believable that Baphomet is a rogue Tenno than something created purely by the Infestation, because I doubt the Infested can infect a Tenno's Oro or "soul", or that the Infested have access to Void powers on their own.

Perhaps a Tenno that willing merged with the Infested to become Baphomet....

The current lore is that he was a scientist in charge of creating biosoldiers for the Orokin in the War.

Most likely he was an Archimedian.

He was on the brink of controlling the infested when he was betrayed by the Orokin, shot and left for dead.

The reason was the Tenno had become active - he was not obsolete and his blasphemous and dangerous work could be terminated.

But in his dying moments, as he was infected by his own experiment he injected himself with the product of all his hard work. A serum that protected his mind.

A creature fuelled now by unsatable hatred for the Orokin and Tenno, he watched the Tenno steal his Honor and recognition.

He fought in the war, maby even unleashed the infestation in the first place.

Not sure what that is exactly, but that was the original idea. Fallen Orokin scientist who in his final moments turned into his own last experiment.

Of course, nothing set in stone. This concept is mostly a collection of evolving ideas.
