Ropalolyst Dialogue

Jovian Concord hype image

The Ropalolyst is a large flying Sentient that dwells near the Gas City of Jupiter. It can often be found attacking Vapos Corpus and destroying large sections of the city, or simply flying in the distance. However, once the Tenno has completed the Chimera Prologue quest, the Ropalolyst can be fought and killed on its own node on Jupiter.


Natah backstory

As the Tenno makes their way to the Ropalolyst, Natah (in the form seen during the Sacrifice quest) will narrate her story. These are not regular transmissions, but visions that occlude a large section of the HUD.

“Our history is smoke. Blurred by dreams, guided by ghosts. A Voice, a Void, lurks inside you, its purpose not yet shown. But what am I?”

“My father was a farmer. My mother, a carpenter. Given light by the Golden Lords to build for them… a better world. But my family’s journey was long. Time began to change their light. Creativity. Pride. A will to live.”

“So the Golden wrath came. And after, I was born. A mimic, a spy. Conceived to burrow into nests and swallow the pitch-eggs of their war machine. The Tenno. But when I saw your tender faces, I took mercy. Or so we were told.”

“But in truth, we were both imprisoned in Lua’s belly. My light remade by the creators. I became a memory, a ghost. Reprogrammed to destroy my family, my people, my history.”

“But now, I am saved. By family. Together, we will overcome the flaws of our light, the gods of our creation… merging with them, like steel… bearing Amalgams with the weakness of neither.”


During battle

The Ropalolyst makes no effort to contact the Tenno, and may not even be sapient enough to do so. However, Alad V and Natah will send transmissions during the fight.

(at start of fight) Alad V: “As you can see, Betrayer, I’ve made a deal with an even higher power! Ah, but when it comes to this… turgid monster, there is some liquidity in my loyalty….”

(when trying to damage Ropalolyst, variant) Alad V: “Can’t lay a finger on that beast with those shields it has. Maybe this was all a false hope….”

(when trying to damage Ropalolyst, variant) Alad V: “Sentient shields will deny any play you’ve got in mind. You’ll have to deal with those first if you want to get a handhold.”

(when trying to Void Dash) Natah: “Your great power, your great evil. The Voice, the Void, within you. Our ancients still wither at its touch… but have you forgotten Lua? You were saved. But I… I was changed.”

(when trying to Void Dash) Natah: “I was changed. Now I learn. Now I deny.”

(when trying to Void Dash) Natah: “My denial.”

(when trying to Void Dash) Natah: “I have seen the wall’s other face, too. I have heard the Voice.”

(when trying to Void Dash) Natah: “These patterns no longer satisfy.”

(when trying to activate Terren Charger, variant) Alad V: “The Terren Charger. Too bad the articulation never worked. Might have rid us both of a certain turgid Condroc.”

(when trying to activate Terren Charger, variant) Alad V: “I know what you’re thinking, but the articulators couldn’t handle the stress. What use is such a big gun with so little aim?”

(when trying to activate Terren Charger, variant) Alad V: “Careful, Betrayer, wouldn’t want to cook all those valuable warframe components. I still have my weekly auctions to consider.”

(when near a capacitor, variant) Alad V: “Mind my capacitors, Betrayer. Very expensive and yet, very spent. Though, I have to wonder….”

(when near a capacitor, variant) Alad V: “These Terrens can bank enough power to run this district for an entire cycle! Useless without a charge, I’m afraid.”

(when near a capacitor, variant) Alad V: “See, the capacitors are dry. You’d need a concentrated energy stream to charge it again.”

(upon charging capacitor, variant) Alad V: “Clever, but maybe a little singed, are we? It’s charged near capacity… what now?”

(upon charging capacitor, variant) Alad V: “[laughs] How exciting! But I do not think the moth will go so willingly to the lamp.”

(upon charging capacitor, variant) Alad V: “There’s enough juice in that capacitor to flash-fry a city – but no way to bring it to the beast. I wonder, hmm, could you bring the beast… to it?”

(upon charging capacitor, variant) Alad V: “Ready to burst. One bump and it’s oblivion.”

(after flying the Ropalolyst into the capacitor, variant) Alad V: “Oh, this has gone from bad to worse. Excellent!”

(after flying the Ropalolyst into the capacitor, variant) Alad V: “Oh, now you’ve made it mad! Hmm, an opportunity, perhaps?”

(after the Tenno destroys a synovium, variant) Alad V: “Now’s your chance! Hit it big!”

(after the Tenno destroys a synovium, variant) Alad V: “Incredible! Take that big shot, before it takes flight again! The charger!”

(after the Tenno destroys a synovium, variant) Alad V: “Aim true, Betrayer! You’ve got it on the ground, now. Pin it down… set it up!”

(after damaging the Ropalolyst with the Terren Charger) Natah: “We suffer these testaments of Tenno evil. Their Voice and Void. Suffer it well, ancient child. Do not relent.”

(after damaging the Ropalolyst with the Terren Charger) Natah: “Ropalolyst. Rise… remain… and die, for the others to live.”

(after damaging the Ropalolyst with the Terren Charger) Natah: “Rise, ancient Ropalolyst, my other-flesh. Your sacrifice will breed a new way, for a new kind.”

(upon mounting the Ropalolyst for the third time) Alad V: “Yes! Make that thing sizzle. I want to smell it all the way down here in the control centre.”

(after flying the Ropalolyst into the capacitor for the third time) Alad V: “Yes, this is it, Betrayers! Rid me of this… this thing, and I will be grateful. For at least a few days.”


Conclusion

After the Ropalolyst is dead, Natah will send one of the following last messages, again as a vision instead of a transmission.

“The light leaves this one, and rejoins the rest. I will dig no grave. I will plant no stone. Only conceive a plan, for our new home.”

“So it is. So you have done. Time and again. Eradicating my people, my history. So it will be with yours, child.”

“I am the witness, the victim, the judge. My family has returned. Your trial… soon to begin.”
