Ludovsky Posted December 4, 2015 Share Posted December 4, 2015 (edited) ... the Second Dream has me thinking a lot about him lately.The Lotus was scared a lot by Vor putting his Ascaris on the "Tenno" at the start of the game.But as we found out in the Second Dream.... the Tenno was never physically at risk.So for a moment I wondered... why such urgency from the Lotus? Sure a Grineer-controlled Warframe would have been a -most- dangerous contraption for the Grineers to get... but the Tenno would still be on the Moon.Then I realized one thing.Vor -knew- that the Tenno was indeed the true "divine light" for which the Warframe was just the "focusing lense". But he also assumed that the Tenno was -inside- the suit. However, that was still a scary close guess.But the real threat of his Ascaris was never him getting control of a Warframe.It was that he was himself about to re-enact Transferance. He only half-knew Orokin lore.... but enough to reproduce some of the tech as seen in his pistol. Enough to get half an inkling of what a Tenno's power is(not their Warframe's, which is just a physical component).And without realizing it, he was about to reproduce Orokin transferance tech and actually discover the true mind of the Tenno.Vor was wrong all along in assuming the Tennos were inside the Warframe and that this body just had to be brought back alive to uncover its secret. His knowledge was the kind of half-knowledge one could get from examining a tech, old barely decipherable lore and gleans only fragment of secrets.But with his Ascaris, without ever realizing it, he was just about to find the -real- truth of the Tennos. That their bodies are Elsewhere.And he was the kind of Grineer that was just crafty enough that had the Lotus had let him, he would have got there.In the end, the Lotus was not afraid of losing a single Tenno.She was afraid she would lose -all- of them to Vor uncovering the Truth.And until the Second Dream, this is what made Vor the most dangerous threat the Tennos ever encountered, without them ever realizing it. Even Alad V who likely actually re-enacted Transferance tech with his Zanuka project never realized what he himself might have stumbled upon. His best guess had always just been that something was "wrong" with the Tennos' bodies yet he never even guessed at the truth.Meanwhile, Vor had stumbled upon it since the very start but had yet to just fully realizes the extent of it.
