Bird 3 Dialogue

A screenshot of Bird 3. He is a massive, colourful bird with resplendent feathers and vestigial wings, crouched in his nest within a golden platform. He holds his head sideways so as to direct his eye at the viewer. Screenshot by GrayArchon.

Bird 3 is a member of the Cavia syndicate within the Sanctum Anatomica, deep below Deimos' surface. A large flightless bird raised to sapience by Albrecht Entrati's bizarre experiments, he sells items to the Tenno to aid them in their fight against the Murmur.


Idle quotes

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "Hmm, I wasn't me, then I was me. Will I be not me again? When I'm not me, will I remember being me? Will I miss me? I think I miss being not me. When I was not me, names weren't things. Things weren't things. Everything was anything. When I was not me there was nothing I wasn't. Now I'm just… me. And things are just things. Rark. Wuk. [pause] Being a person is hard. I don't feel like me fits in me. Inside me is the wrong size for outside me. Outside me is the wrong size for outside. I wonder if the other mes feel like this. Wuk. Rark. Hm. Rark. I was bigger when I was smaller."

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "That sound Mister Tagfer makes… makes me feel squinchy inside. Makes my eyes prickle. Makes me think of Minn. He misses Minn. I miss her, too."

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "Sometimes, when I try to sleep, I hear noises. Word-noises. Word-noises saying things. Things I don't wanna hear. From the walls. An' I say 'SHUT UP WORDS! I'M TRYNA SLEEP!' Wuk. Wuk. Stupid voices. Wuk."

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "Oh hey! You wanna bang-make-flat? Uh, loud sleepymaker? Y'know, a make-em-go-floppy! Shouty shouty! Ugh. Words."

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "Hey. I still got a bunch of that noisy metal wood you like so much. Least I'm told it's noisy. Mister Tagfer says he made it all safe. How do you make wood safe? Is wood not safe? Has Mister Tagfer made all wood safe? What about the wood I made nests from back when I lived in the green thing? Hello? Is wood my friend? Hello? Rark. Wuk."

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "Whaddya use these things for anyway? Mister Tagfer says they solve problems. How do they solve problems? I tried asking them how I could get a bunch of sticks so I could make a nest like I had when I lived in the green thing called a jungle, but they didn't say. Rark. Wuk. Rark. Wuk."

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "Can I help? I can help! Let me help."

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "Hey, does the sky still exist? Mister Fishonacci just makes weird breathy sounds when I ask. Mister Tagfer says it does. Why can't we see the sky? Can we see the sky? When? is it when I give you all this noisy metal wood Mister Fishonacci says you need? He says it's important. Why is it important? Can you take it now? Is the reason you can't take it now because you don't have enough arms? Can you get more arms? Hey. Rark. Wuk. Rark. Humph."

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "Rark. Wuk wuk wuk. Rark."

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "'So… (singing) once I didn't think, now I do. Once I was a what, now I am a who. So whats don't think, but whos do. That makes me me, and makes you you.' (normal voice) If my thinking makes me a who, it makes everyone else a who. But I can't see what other whos think… and I'm pretty sure they can't see what I'm thinking… and when Mister Tagfer and Mister Fishonacci tell me what I'm thinking, I'm pretty sure they're wrong… so when I think I know what they're thinking, I'm probably wrong. So… everybody's wrong about what everybody's thinking, so everybody's wrong about who everybody is. I think. So… that means… we should probably stop thinking about it… and just be nice to each other. Wuk. Rark."

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "Rark. Rark."

(if the Tenno is rank Colleague) [smacks beak]

(if the Tenno is rank Colleague) [sigh]

(if the Tenno is rank Colleague) "People are talking by being quiet. Saying things with flicky glances. Everyone's hiding something? Should I hide something? Oh! Would that make them like me?"

(if the Tenno is rank Colleague) "I have a secret too. It's that I… have… no… secrets! Haha, is that a good one? Should I tell them? Would that… is that what we're doing?"

(if the Tenno is rank Colleague) [coughing] "Wuk."

(if the Tenno is rank Colleague) "Wuk. Wuk. Wuk. Wuk. [cough] Rark."

(if the Tenno is rank Scholar) "Hey ho friend. Do you think maybe… Minn felt like this? Y'know… before she… y'know. [sigh] Up and at 'em!"

(if the Tenno is rank Scholar) "Mister Tagfer says if we go with Minn that's okay. But did he mean going to the Void, or becoming dead things, or is Minn not a dead thing? I'm confused. I think I want to stay here. I just got this brain. I'm still figuring out what to do with it!"

(if the Tenno is rank Scholar) [coughs]

(if the Tenno is rank Scholar) [laboured breathing]

(if the Tenno is rank Scholar) [cough] "He-ey! Blech. [sigh] Okay. Better now."

(if the Tenno is rank Scholar) "Oo-oh. Friends and me not feeling good. But… but we get better. Right? Wuk wuk wuk. Blech. There. Better. Huh-BLECK! Ugh."

(if the Tenno is rank Scholar) "Oh. Hey. Can I help? I can help. Whew. Room got spinny. Okay. Whaddya need?"

(if the Tenno is rank Illuminate) "I'm glad to be here, but Mister Loid wants to be somewhere else. Where I am, he wants to go from. But when I was where I was, I think this is where I wanted to get to. Rark. Wuk. Maybe everyone's here is a there someone else wants. Maybe everyone's there is a here someone wants to leave. Maybe that's what all those voices are murmuring about all the time WILL YOU SHUT THE HELL UP!"

(if the Tenno is rank Illuminate) "Hey! How's it goin'? Are we winning?"

(if the Tenno is rank Illuminate) "Bird 3 at your service."

(if the Tenno is rank Illuminate) (sing-song) "Come and get it."

(if the Tenno is rank Illuminate) "Boomies sorta scare me. Kinda glad I don't have hands. Wuk. 'Hands'. Wuk. Who needs 'em."

(if the Tenno is rank Illuminate) "Hey, buddy!"

(if the Tenno is rank Illuminate) "He-ey!"

(if the Tenno is rank Illuminate) (sing-song) "Lemme know if I can he-elp!"


Greeting the Tenno

(if the Tenno has just completed Whispers in the Walls) "Mister Tagfer is very still and very quiet. Like a dead thing in the hot green thing I think I came from. Jungle! He must be practising. Mister Tagfer? Wow. He's really good at that. Dead thing. Is Minn a dead thing? Can my friends be dead things? Can I be a dead thing? Papa will bring her back. Papa can do that. Papa won't let us be dead things. Papa RARK! loves us. Yes? RARK! Yes? RARK! RARK! Mister Fishonacci… he'd know. Papa's plan, Papa's plan he said. So…." [hyperventilating]

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "Mister Fishonacci said I had to hold these for you."

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "When I find things I like, I keep 'em. So… if we're not keeping these then they must not be very good? But if you need 'em then your stuff must be worse. I am happy to help give you better stuff by handing you our garbage!"

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "Like 'em?"

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "So, you collect these or what?"

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "How many and where do I send 'em?"

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "Wuk."

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or Researcher) "Rark!"

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or higher) "Fingers are weird. They're just there, on you, doin'… stuff. Gross." 

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or higher) "Y'ello!"

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or higher) "Heyo!"

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or higher) "What do these do?"

(if the Tenno is rank Assistant or higher) "Ooh! Conversation! Who goes first?"

(if the Tenno is rank Colleague) "He-ey."

(if the Tenno is rank Colleague) "Hi."

(if the Tenno is rank Colleague) "Mmmmmm."

(if the Tenno has just reached rank Illuminate) "Listen. I only been thinkin' for a little while, and I think I mighta been dead there for a bit? So maybe I'm not doin' it right, but I know I'da been dead for more than a bit if it wasn't for you. So anytime you wanna go in that chamber and get irradiated and then killed and then come back as a rainbow like we did, I'll ask Mister Loid to put it back together and I'll be the one pullin' the lever on ya. That's what they call 'returnin' a favour'. I think. Anythin' for you, pal. You're a regular Bird 4. Rark!"

(if the Tenno is rank Illuminate) "We all got somethin' to do. Mr Fishonacci's got his thing, Mister Tagfer's got his thing, I got my thing. It's so nice."

(if the Tenno is rank Illuminate) "Help me help you."

(if the Tenno is rank Illuminate) "Hope you're havin' a luv-erly day. Rark. Wuk."

(if the Tenno is rank Illuminate) [clears throat] (Loid impression) "How may I be of assistance? (normal voice) Rark. Crap. Rark."

(if the Tenno is rank Illuminate) "I may not be able to see sky blue no more, but it makes me feel good to help you protect it."

(if the Tenno is rank Illuminate) "I knew you'd come back!"

Mission control

Bird 3 acts as mission control for the following mission types:


Bird 3's dialogue, like that of the other Cavia, changes significantly in tone and delivery as the Tenno ranks up with the Cavia. Initially Bird 3 is happy and energetic, but after the Tenno becomes a Colleague he becomes sad, almost depressed. As the Tenno continues to Scholar he becomes weak and sick, sometimes coughing. Once the Tenno attains the final rank of Illuminate, Bird 3 is once again energetic and friendly, and quite grateful to the Tenno. The reasons for these changes are shown in the Cavia rank-up conversations.

Bird 3 is introduced during the Whispers in the Walls quest, along with the rest of the Cavia. He has additional dialogue in Operation: Gargoyle's Cry. He is mentioned in the dialogue of Loid, Fibonacci (whose name he pronounces "Fish-o-nah-chee"), and Tagfer, and is also mentioned in Albrecht's Notes.
