Boboknight11 Posted October 6, 2014 Share Posted October 6, 2014 Today I want to answer the question 'who are the Tenno?'. I'm looking to answer specifically two things. What makes them Tenno And how did they get their powers? What makes a Tenno a Tenno? Well back to our old friend Dark Sector. We have been told by DE that Hayden Tenno was the first Tenno. But what makes him the first Tenno? Surly the last name alone won't answer this whole question right? Well no. The last name is more of a hint. We all know that traditionally the male will pass on his last name the his children. So his last name may suggest that that the Tenno(The group with Warframes) may be the same as the Tenno(The family of Hayden Tenno). So why would his decedents be considered the Tenno(the group), the only people who can use Warframes? Well as I've said on my last theory that Hayden Tenno had congenital analgesia. From my research I've found that it's a condition were the patient suffers little too no pain, it also comes in many different types. But from all my research I've done, none of the types transfer over to the victim's decedents. This is where I break away from facts and go to what is possible or suggested. Because there are several different forms of congenital analgesia it may be possible that a different form of it may appear that I will be passed on to the victim's decedents. This would make is possible for Hayden's decedents to have pain immunity. Now why would pain immunity be so important to what makes a Tenno a Tenno? Well in my last theory we established that Warframes are made from the technocyte virus and that normally the virus causes intense pain to whoever is infected. And that the pain will cause most people to go mad. Well pain immunity would be essential if you wanted too keep your sanity while using the Warframe. Well we've just said that it's possible for all of Hayden Tenno's decedents pain immunity making them one of the only people who could use the Warframes. It all sort of ties in well if you consider that a new type of congenital analgesia may appear that is passed on to the decedents. Now the Tenno(the family) and the Tenno(the group) could be the same thing. How did Tenno get there powers? As said by captain Vor "Tenno do not control the Warframe's divine energy. the Tenno are that energy." At first when I heard that I did not understand. How can a person make that much energy? Well DE has basically thrown the answer at us from the start of user 2.0. Remember all that talk you hear about void traces, void signatures, etc.? even an event where the corpus used sensors to detect void energy? Yes void energy. So Tenno have lots of void energy? well where did they get it? Well according to the Excalibur's codex entry the Orokin "took the twisted few who returned from the void" and then they go on to talked about what seems like a Tenno. So the Tenno have spent some time in the void and have some sort of void energy. It would seem that the Tenno were somehow infused with energy from the void "twisting" them. The void might have also altered their physical appearance or capabilities, making more sense of the Orokin using the word twisted. This would also explain why you keep the Warframe on at all times, even while in your ship. Either that or DE got careless. So the Tenno are decedents of Hayden Tenno who are immune to pain, allowing them to use Warframes. And have gone to the void where they were "twisted" and given the energy to use more powerful Warframes then before. After all of this I don't think I'd want to be a Tenno. I can't feel pain causing me to frequently hurt myself, I've been deformed and forced to keep on a nasty virus at all times, I've been forced into a never ending war, and to top it all I've been brain washed so I don't know who I am or what I'm fighting for. That's my theory for what a Tenno is. I hope you understood it and liked it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
