Sitchrea Posted November 1, 2014 Share Posted November 1, 2014 (edited) We know from Mirage's questline that the Tenno were, at one time, mortal. We know that the Lotus is flesh (To some extent), as seen on her transmission videos. We know that Warframe are a conduit of void energy, as observed during the Tutorial questline. So, knowing this, Forum User Sophronius and I, after much deliberation, have developed a theory: The Lotus is a Warframe. But more than this, she is the last original, living Tenno. So to explain... we know that the original Tenno somehow got void powers and such, yada-yada. We also know that when exposed to void energy and artifacts, you become void energy yourself I.E. Void Vor. So, as seen during Mirage's questline, when the original Tenno died they went on to become what we now know as Tenno today - the energy that powers and directs the Warframe. But... What about the Lotus? When we observe the Lotus, she is obviously in a massive suit that is interconnected to an incredibly robust database. but this suit... If this is a Warframe, or at least similar to a Warframe, this would explain how she is able to understand exactly what is going on during a player's mission. Also, being a Tenno, she would be able to process, decipher, analyze, and communicate vast amounts of information in a short amount of time. Sound like the Lotus? It would make sense that the thousands of Super Soldiers being used in the Old War would need a commander unit, a Super Soldier capable of coordinating several units at once with pin-point accuracy. Since she was a Tenno devoted to intelligence gathering she would be behind the lines of combat, away from the dangers posed by the Sentients; perhaps even put inside an impenetrable bunker and sealed away, camouflaged, and never to be opened? This would explain how the Lotus, the last of the original Tenno, was able to communicate on a personal level with dieing Tenno (I.E. Mirage's questline), for she was in fact one of them. Now, as the last of her original kind, she works with the Tenno who went on to become Void energy and directs their conduits to further their original goal of keeping balance in the system. Additional awesome points from le comments: Excalibur codex mentions that "twisted -few-" returned from the void with afflictions for which they constructed Warframes around as a conduit.- If there are "few" tenno then why are we killing masses of ourselves in dark sector conflicts? How could there possibly be so many left to kill each other?At one point during Vor's Prize, Vor says, "Tenno do not control the Warframe's divine energy. The tenno are that energy. Each Warframe you control is merely a glass shaping your furious light."Also, through orokin tech (Janus key) Vor becomes an immortal through void like energy. Undying, he now roams the void forever. Being capable of taking on a physical manifest when he desires.- How was Vor speaking only metaphorically when he became "divine energy" himself? Clearly it is a possibility for one to do so.- How could Tenno be nothing more than flesh inside a Warframe considering what Vor said?Ordis mentions upon completing the Limbo quest to be careful when you "occupy" the Warframe known as Limbo.Vor is also capable of appearing as flesh although he is also an immortal now consisted of Void energy. Now being eternal.- Why can't Tenno look human, have flesh and yet (just like Vor) still be this kind of energy which can go to and from different Warframes? Basically Tenno are ascended beings who are beyond simplistic forms of life. I still believe that Tenno are able to turn temporanely into energy and reshape themselves into flesh and blood inside the Frame to match it... That the Frames are kinda like Exarch suits in 40k lore, people dons them and aquire some specific abilities related to the original Tenno around whom the Warframe was grafted... That the Tenno can produce large amount of destructive energy, the Void Bless, but they cannot control it and using Warframe is the only way to channell it into powers... As Sitchrea stated, they needed someone capable of coordinating several units at once. She is an integrated system.Familiar with Angel from Borderlands 2?Lotus is likely using a platform. Instead of being like all other Warframe's she does not have offensive abilities, rather she was designed as a logistic unit, intelligence gatherer, and field coordinator.
