Loid is a cephalon serving the Entrati family on Deimos. He heads up the Necraloid Syndicate, a clandestine operation to repair ancient Entrati necramechs.
Loid operates the Necraloid Syndicate, located in a hidden chamber deep within the Necralisk. The Necraloid Syndicate is described thusly:
While the Entrati family’s cohort of lethal Necramechs succumbed to the corrupting influence of Deimos, Loid’s shielding kept him sane, as well as preserving what was left of his ‘passenger’, the cephalon Otak. Together, they maintain a proud tradition of loyal service.
Loid offers Necramech component blueprints and associated gear: mods, weapons, and customisations. The Syndicate ranks, from least to most favoured, are:
- Neutral: [no description]
- Clearance: Agnesis: Congratulations! Your presence is tolerated!
- Clearance: Modus: Your Liability Rating has been upgraded to ‘Negligible’.
- Clearance: Odima: Best friends!
Unlike the faction Syndicates, Standing with the Necraloid is earned by trading in Orokin Matrices rewarded from Isolation Vault bounties (assigned by Gomaitru in the Necralisk). Otak, who inhabits the same physical body as Loid, will often interrupt Loid when speaking to the Tenno.
Greeting the Tenno
(if the Tenno has just completed the Heart of Deimos quest) “A visitor. Quite rare these days. We never receive visitors.”
“Greetings. May I be of assistance?”
“This area is sound-proof. We may commerce freely.”
“Welcome to our haven.”
“I must ask that you keep our dealings secret from Mother.”
Loid: “Hello. Are you requiring something—”
Loid: “Not now, Otak….”
(if the Tenno has just reached rank Clearance: Odima) “You have proven a competent and reliable ally. I suggest we continue nurturing this partnership for the foreseeable future.”
(if the Tenno is rank Clearance: Odima) “Greetings. Your presence is always a gift to us.”
(if the Tenno is rank Clearance: Odima) “So good to see you again.”
(if the Tenno is rank Clearance: Odima) “Collaborating towards a common goal is surprisingly gratifying.”
(if the Tenno is rank Clearance: Odima) Loid: “Ah! Otak and I were just talking about you.”
Loid: “Right in front of—”
Loid: “Forget it.”
“Greetings. I am prepared to assist you, should you be worthy. Forgive me, I’ve always wanted to say that.”
“Are you interested in a business exchange?”
“Perhaps we can make a trade?”
Purchasing an item
“I am pleased we were able to come to a mutually beneficial agreement.”
“I convey my personal thanks.”
“I am glad to learn that this arrangement is suitable for you.”
Exiting wares with purchase
“I look forward to our subsequent dealings.”
“I hope that we might continue to work together in a constructive manner.”
“I am certain we will see you again in the near future.”
Exiting wares without purchase
“I am sorry we were not able to arrive at a satisfactory arrangement.”
“I trust this does not preclude future dealings.”
Loid: “Perhaps another time, then.”
Otak: “What time?”
Loid: “Quiet, Otak.”
“Many safe returns.”
“Exercise caution whenever possible.”
“Be pragmatic in all aspects of life.”
Loid is introduced in the Heart of Deimos quest as the Tenno’s first point of contact with the Entrati family. He continues to help the Tenno carry out Bounties on the Cambion Drift, serving as main mission control (a role he shares with Otak and, occasionally, Latrox Une or Kaelli). Loid is mentioned in the dialogue of Gomaitru, Vilcor, Kaelli, Kermerros, and Otak, and by Kaelli during the Nights of Naberus holiday event. It is strongly implied that Loid’s operation of the Necraloid Syndicate is done on Vilcor’s behalf, hidden from Gomaitru.
