Yorinar Posted June 24, 2014 Share Posted June 24, 2014 (edited) Clearly infested ancients are derived from whales. Take a good look at them (from a safe place, like the codex) and there are a number of features common to whales in their physiology. The infested were used in battling the Sentients, before the fall of the Orokin. Perhaps the Orokin genetically engineered whales and dolphins able to match or exceed humans. Man's relentless cruelty and destruction of everything we see led these now more capable, fully sentient creatures to rise up against mankind. We know some infested date back to the Orokin war, based on information from the Lotus. "Ancients" as a term for that creature type indicates they too are very old. Perhaps they are infested Sentients? Even if they aren't, why the devil do they appear in any tileset outside of Orokin Void and Derelict? They only make sense there, unless there are infested ships and some infested hivemind that sends out these ancients from their hidden base. Also how exactly are ships getting infested during outbreaks? Just some idle speculation. Edit: perhaps the Tenno betrayal of the Orokin was because we realized we were fighting on the wrong side, probably after it was already too late.
