Where do "Gifts from the Lotus" come from?

Gifts of the Lotus or GotL on some of the offsite forums, are given out by the devs, usually after Devstreams or during the various holiday seasons. Traditionally, the rewards are items that aren't normally found in Alerts, such as Rivens or certain cosmetics.

An example is during the Warframe Anniversary, when Dex weapons and cosmetics are put up on such alerts, assuming it isn't the current anniversary's gift, which is always shipped to your Inbox.

Our devs, because they're merciful.

As for the greater lore implications, that might be in for a change next year.
We'll see.

Could easily make it a nightwave thing, as she's sorta the new alert system.

Or from Darvo.

Oh man, an expansion on Darvo, maybe with some prices that don't cause players to regret investing in this game?
That'd be a great opportunity.

But is it truly a gift if you have to do a mission for it? 😛

"Happy birthday son! Run a 10 mile marathon to get your gift!"

Better than needing to have a Twitch Prime subscription active to get the "gift". Darn Darvo.

Natah is not the lotus.

the lotus imagery is tied to the orokin and the warframe project.

natah just took the appearance of our controller, and the name was the easiest to grab from our tenno's shared mnemonic/akashic record.
which allowed for her easy infiltration and subterfuge

now none of what i have said is 100% official, other than natah not being marguilis. 
however there is enough history in the development of dark sector and eventually warframe to suggest that the lotus was the name of the overall project, rather than a single figure.
quick example, vandal weapons have louts imagery, tenno gear in dojo has a specific orokin lotus theme, the original dark sector demo used the lotus as the symbols for the warframes and their faction, dark sector released game has the lotus imagery, while not canon it is kind of tied to the infested with excal and nyx being included in the game.

gifts of the lotus are tenno rewards. simple.

I bet it's the Quills all along. Well, the Quills are just the branch that deals with us, Tenno.

Ordis still believes that he's the one synthesizing the messages. How some of them bring completely new facts to us, he doesn't even notice.
