Warframe: Unmasked Tenno by KukuruyoArt Warframe: Unmasked Tenno by KukuruyoArt
I started to play Warframe some weeks ago and liked it very much, so i decided to do a fanart with the female Tennos without their masks.

Note that noone knows how a Tenno is without the mask, they we created by the Orokin and they have 3 fingers in their feet, so they could as well be totally alien, or they could be part of their warframe and the mask is actually their face. This is my interpretation based on some details, in the game they usually separate tenno from warframe so i imagine them alike the Quarians in Mass effect, mostly humans with some changes like the feet, who have a close relationship with their power armor, probably only them can use it or decide when to leave it (hence the Corpus torturing Valkyr inside her warframe), and probably can't live long without it. I also imagine them with blank eyes cause there's some in-game references to them being "eyeless", and as they wear eyeless masks, i believe they rely on sonar (being banshee's powers probably an amplification of this) and warframe sensors (one of the reasons i say they can't probably live much without it).

Btw my favourite warframes are Ember prime and Valkyr.

..............

Empece a jugar al Warframe hace algunas semanas y me gusto bastante, así que decidi hacer un fanart con las Tennos sin sus mascaras.

Tened en cuenta que nadie sabe como es un Tenno sin mascara, fueron creados por los Orokin y se puede ver que tienen solo 3 dedos en los pies, así que podrian ser totalmente alien, o ser parte de sus warframes y las mascara ser su cara real. Esto es mi interpretación basada en algunos detalles, en el juego hacen incapie en separar tenno de warframe, asi que los imagino que los Quarians del Mass effect, mayormente humanos con algunos cambios como los pies, que tienen una muy cercana relación con su power armor, probablemente solo ellos pueden usarla o decidir cuando salir de ella (de ahí que los Corpus torturasen a Valkyr aun dentro del warframe), y probablemente no pueden vivir mucho sin ella. También me los imagino con los ojos en blanco ya que en el juego se hacen diversas referencias a ellos como "sin ojos", y dado que llevan mascaras ciegas, creo que seguramente dependan de sonar (siendo los poderes de banshee una amplificación de ello) y los sensores del warframe (una de las razones por las que no podrían vivir mucho sin ellos)

not sure if this would be considered canon because yes the tenno are human in appearance but are they inside the warframe or do they control them telepathically i dunno

While I'm not too fond of the overly-human representation of Tenno, I have to say these capture the Warframe's perfectly

Well they were meant to be Orokin, and as is evident from most of the alien species they look human because... Well think about it, all life forms that are evolved would be partially human, if not near exact because this is how evolution works, a species adapts to it's environment, and as we've seen from humanity we've dominated the planet quite a lot, so it is a more adapt form of evolution to the other life forms on this planet, no offence to them, all creatures are beautiful and special but we've surpassed them in terms of adaptation, so most alien life forms, though they will have their differences, look human, for example, these don't have pupils, if the tenno of the orokin were for example primarily living in the darkness and something happened that brought large amounts of light in, it would explain the warframe gear, especially a helmet.

Kinda like Nova and Nyx, but I imagine Banshee being more of a proud white noble woman. Just my opinion tho

Great artwork. I look forward to seeing the face you come up with for the male Tenno.

Based on Excaliber's and Ember's backstory I believe that the Tenno were the last ditch effort to save the human race. Humans had already created robots that turned evil, clones/cyborgs that turned evil, and were basically left with no other options except to send someone through a dangerous portal power by Orokin technology they did not understand. The first person to survive this became the first Excaliber Tenno. They then copied him (thus explaining multiple people playing as the same type; especially where Ember who has an entire backstory in her Codex entry) and experimented with other variations.

my theory is that the tenno in warframe came from the original haythem tenno from dark sector, since the two, but lore are connected to eachother. but it's great art regardless. :)

im joking on the rude stuff; I have real respect for the valkyr and the ember (theyre my favs) but the rest ...not so much (these are my impressions from the game): mag's a timid thing, trinity's just... we'll discuss that later, saryn just comes off as a slut, nova...(shudder) don't ask (I'll never respect BEN for a few years after THAT picture), nyx's a complete psycho (wait, that's like me! I guess I do respect her!), and banshee just plain creeps me out. Im not sexist! I also have things about the guys too!
