What Are Warframes?

Unsure. Warframes are either:

 

- Technocyte Exoskeletons that grew from the Tenno's own skin, enhancing their powers, like Hayden Tenno.

 

- Technocyte Exoskeletons/Suits that were made for the Tenno to already enhance their powers.

 

 

Probably the latter.

Three figures waited behind a simple table. Their attention on a single chair, bathed in light. An old woman's voice from the shadow: 'Send her in'. Across the room a security officer, stern and plain, opened the door. The outline of a young woman appeared at the door. She hesitated, but only for an instant, then crossed the room and sat.

There was a gasp as the light hit her face. Her right eye was bright and blinking, but her left was a greasy slit. Her skin had been burned moon-white. Her mouth was a sagging gash without lips or expression. Her military beret was pulled snug over a scarred and hairless scalp.

The old voice: 'Your name is Kaleen.' Kaleen nodded. 'You were the principal investigator of the Zariman?' Kaleen's voice was a jagged whisper, a rigid face. 'Yes.'

Kaleen coughed, straightened: 'The Zariman was lost making the fold from Saturn to the Outer gates. Mechanical failure. I notified families and filled a report with the inspectors. Nothing ever returns from the fold, so I closed the case.'

'But you reopened the case, days later.'

'I didn't believe it myself until I stepped aboard the ship. It was completely intact, full environmental, as if it had never left.'

'And the crew was gone.'

'Not exactly.' Kaleen hesitated. 'We thought it was empty but we began to find...' Her face twitched at remembered pain, 'We began to find children hiding in the ship.'

'And that is when you violated procedure?'

Kaleen bowed her head, a tear welling in her sightless eye. 'They were children. They were afraid. They needed comfort.'

'So you broke quarantine and this happened to you.'

There was silence as Kaleen touched her face, 'So what have you done with them?'

The old woman gestured for the officer to take Kaleen away. The meeting was over. When Kaleen reached the door she twisted out of his grip and shot back, 'Why would you do that? Why did you put children on military ship?'

'We didn't. That would violate procedure.'

What Technocyte?

 

This lore entry says nowhere that it wasn't the Technocyte. But it doesn't say it was either. It didn't help at all. :/ But on any case, those children could have very well been infected with the Technocyte.

 

But there are tons of other entries that point out it's the Technocyte, though.

What Technocyte?

 

at the end the "We didn't.  That would violate procedure."  bit, i can draw two things from the whole convo...  Either they put kids on there for a experiement OR the crew was turned into children... or they were using some sort of child labor mixed in with the regular adult crew and only the children returned for some reason.

Warframes are weapons/suits, made of technocyte virus from the orokin to help tennos contain and use their powers

 

 

Tennos are the race of survaivors with various powers gained from the void that mastered the warframe and use em to restore the balance in the universe

Warframes are what makes the Tenno the Tenno, they are the amelioraters of the Tenno and they are what gives the Tenno such fierce power. They are the one with the Tenno, and they are bound by soul and by war. They are Exo-skeletons of the Tenno created by the Technocyte virus that they harbor inside them, the first one to have this is known as Nemesis. She is the first to have a Warframe that we know today, the Warframes mimic the powers that the Tenno have and improve them ten-fold. They are the Tenno as much as the Tenno is the Warframe. 

 

Any questions?
