New Enemy Faction: The Orchid (+art)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

 

The Orchid:

(A dumb idea for a new enemy faction I thought of and just decided to role with it, hope you enjoy!)

 

ORIGIN

  During a mining expedition the Grineer had found a Orokin Archive of collected DNA and saw this as an opportunity to bring back the Orokin and possibly stop their deterioration with each clone. However ,due to the sabotage of an Orokin scientist, there was no actual Orokin DNA in the Archives. In desperation the Grineer decided to use Kuva as a substitute for Orokin DNA but rather than create Orokin the combined DNA and Kuva created a new species. This new species quickly overran the Grineer scientists and their security before stealing Grineer ships and escaping into the far reaches of the galaxy often stealing more ships from the Grineer and Corpus who wander too far. All the while their ultimate goal was searching for meaning to their existence. They found that meaning in the discovery of the Orokin Empire and they then spent decades researching the history of the Orokin.

 

RELIGION  

  After spending decades researching the history of the Orokin they began to view them as the creators of the universe they now live in and began referring to them as The Golden Gods. A religious group was born from this calling themselves The Orchid and divided into houses each based off the seven Orokin virtues: speed, power, cunning, agility, endurance, cooperation, and stealth.

Prayer:
Praise the Golden Gods your ruins and forsaken artifacts are the foundation of our universe,
Damn the heretics who seek to conquer the Origin System in your absence (Grineer),
Damn the heretics who seek to desecrate the divine gifts you left us for profit (Corpus)
We shall purge all who ignore your divine truth,
Salvation be ours for we fight for you our Golden Gods, 
Victory to The Orchid!
 

 

RELATIONSHIPS/OPINIONS OF OTHER FACTIONS AND CHARACTERS (Work in progress)

  Tenno: The Tenno are viewed as fallen angels,they where an idol worthy of worship but then they betrayed the Golden Gods and fell from grace. (Must atone for their past deeds and betrayal but have the chance to become holy again)
 
Stalker: The Stalker is seen as a angelic being of the Orokin and is worthy of worship. (Shall be worshiped and given full support) 
 
GrineerDespite being their creators the Orchid have renounced any relationship to the Grineer empire and view them as nothing more than Heretics who seek to conquer the Origin System in the Orokins absence. (Must be purged)
 
Corpus: All companies under the Corpus Conglomeration are heretics who dare defile sacred Orokin artifacts for profit. (Must be purged)
 
Sentinels: Are viewed as devils and Natah being responsible for corrupting the Tenno (Must be purged) 
 
Relay Factions,Cetus, and Fortuna: Colonies shall soon be captured and given the chance to realize the Golden Gods as the ultimate source of worship and salvation. (Shall be given the chance to see the truth and if they refuse then they shall be purged)
 
Corrupted: The Orchid have no interest in the corrupted or the void in particular. However they do desire the Janus Key and wish to reclaim it from the heretic Vor.
 

 

Possible plot points, achievements, etc (that are not cannon at the moment)

  Stealing the Janus Key from Vor: With the Janus key The Orchid having been causing fissures to erratically pop up all around the Origin system to weaken heretic forces. They also use this to teleport soldiers into ships/bases instead of wasting aircraft or boarding pods.
Orchid reproduction: The orokin have a fair share of insectoide looking machines( ravenous maw , shrimp prime (fish from orb valis ) and the giant worm thing from the duviri trailer ). Maybe on the research facility the orchid were created the grineer had discovered some insectoid looking orokin machine related to kuva production . Somehow the orchid thought the machine was their mother and the grineer stole her womb. So they somehow managed to use the grineer pods on the machine. 

 

ACOLYTES

 

The foot soldiers of The Orchid(his chain bears the Orokin symbol for speed meaning he belongs to House of Speed)

ARTIFICER:

 The Artificers are the tech savvy workers responsible for hacking enemy equipment and modifying weapons, ships, etc for The Orchid.

THE GOLDEN-PRIESTS

  Each house is led by an Golden-Priest who are the religious leaders of The Orchid. When an Orchid becomes a Golden-Priest they chop off one of their limbs(usually a hand) and replace it with a cybernetic one made from Orokin technology. They also take a large chunk of Orokin technology and strap it upon their backs. Gold is viewed as the symbolic color of their Gods and therefore everyone else including high ranking military wear silver rather than gold.

ARTILLERY 

  All of the Orchids ships, weapons, and supplies where stolen goods from Corpus and Grineer forces that wandered too far from the Origin system. However they've all been modified by The Orchid through infusing Orokin technology.

@Sc10n0fD4rksp0r3 The Tenno are viewed as fallen angels,they where an idol worthy of worship but then they betrayed the Golden Gods and fell from grace. Plus other Tenno allies like the factions in the relays, Cetus, Fortuna are all up for purging.

This sounds like it could be something good for what corrupted cor has discovered through the janus key.

 

Hes like a ghost or a soul in another dimension now. Like an invisible angel

Ew, vor as face as an angel... back up! Back i say!

hhmmm I see were you're going @(PS4)IIFrost_GhostII but The Orchid don't worship the Void they worship the Orokin. So to them Vor is just another heretic who they will purge in good time. Also angel face Vor, totally gonna photoshop that now.

Well the janus key was made by the orokin, and if im not mistaken. Janus is an orokin being, helping vor through the key

So the Janus key is an Orokin artifact in the hands of a Heretic Grineer @(PS4)IIFrost_GhostII

Yes youre right, im wrong. I got the janus being a being from a video that made up the idea. 

But DE could turn it into something true. Im sure vor wasnt the first to discover this imortality. Orokin may have to

And also im not suggesting the orchird follow vor as a leader. Im saying corrupted vor can lead to the discovery of some new orokin characters who are also like corrupted vor. Making them appear to be more like higher power beings thats found in so many popular religions.

Essentially i was trying to come up with an intro to your idea that will additionaly extend on some old warframe lore that has become silent for a very long time.

That is a good idea, I could imagine The Orchid entering the Void to try and take the Janus key from Vor.

When i say like corrupted vor, i mean like him being energy or a ghost now. Because after we killed vor a second time, he was still able to speak saying "behold, they cut me down, but still i speak!! I am energy!!!"

Even better!!! They should be successful in doing so, vor could create havoc with that thing. Hes probably doing something right now thats caussing fissures to spawn in all our warframe missions.

Maybe the orchid catch sight of a fissure, and it will explain why they have finally made their appearance again

Haha, yes good question! As it will make them winning the fight more unexpected!!

The orchird prehaps may like the fissures being open everywhere as it can help them gain power quicker or find more lost orokin artifacts to help fight the tenno for what theyve done to the orokin. The fissures will be more strategic sending orchird enemies through the fissures to attack enemies, gather resources or take back orokin artifacts.

 

Stalker may can be revisited in this way as well, because he also had a DEEP love for the orokin. I know someone who loves the stalker in real life and is worried about him. Becoming indestructible energy might melt his heart lol

I'd think they'd view the Stalker as like a angel like how they view Tenno as Fallen Angels
