Gauss Leverian

The Gauss Leverian was the 1st exhibit to be released, and was unveiled with the debut of Gauss himself.


Drusus Leverian: "Ahhh. Gauss. Where to begin, where to begin. Well, the Ceres excavation, of course. The site of the ancient Tower of Altra. Blastcrete emplacements, air sentries… its fields saturated with tremor-mines. A great fortress for the great lords of Ceres… until they were pitched from the roof, immortal bodies erupting on the dread mines below. An insurgency, from within. The Dax sent to reclaim Altra fared no better. Those that ran the gauntlet of bore-guns were soon cindered in the field beyond… and that's when they called in our fleet-footed friend here."


Drusus Leverian: "Dual sidearms pulled from Altra's outer ring of blastcrete bunkers. Something crashed through those bunkers at great speed, the impact scattering stone and flesh all the same. An unearthly kinetic shockwave. Those insurgents with the misfortune of surviving the initial blast must have seen the Akarius for themselves."


Drusus Leverian: "The Acceltra: a rapid-fire micro-missile launcher. The smooth polycarbonate barrels still carry a vague stench of ozone. Some think Gauss was a blunt instrument, all speed, with as much versatility as a cannonball. But the Acceltra implies more. It implies surging in, inviting the enemy to consider the blade, then rebounding to let missiles answer their confusion."

[Gauss Mag helmet]

Drusus Leverian: "Not the standard dress helm. This one has specialised control surfaces, angled plating. Supreme streamlining. It catches the light in a curious way, doesn't it? When it shines just so, I see myself atop Altra, a hostage perhaps, peering out across the desolate field… and then… I'd see it. A pale glint of light."

[Altra syandana]

Drusus Leverian: "Dax of the day had a saying: 'That which cannot be hit, cannot be killed'. I can only imagine what they thought when they saw Gauss that day. A gleaming bullet, this syandana pinned rigid like a flag in a maelstrom, streaking toward Altra."

[Gauss airfoil]

Drusus Leverian: "A stripped-out Gauss Airfoil system. These fanciful contrivances contribute the Kubrodon's share of this warframe's acceleration. Strength, mass, density – all held in a delicate balance."


Drusus Leverian: "Gauss. Front edge: smooth heat-resistant composites. Trailing edges: streamlined, foiled, this particular one vaguely warped by extreme heat stress. The Saint of Altra. If the mind wanders, what do you see? I see a vivid Lord-like Festival, the tremor mines bursting in a blinding wave, rising toward Altra. And Gauss – a smear of light, just ahead of the thermal avalanche – fast as fire. No… faster."

Baro Ki'Teer sells the Altra mask, a sentinel cosmetic described as "In this skin, your sentinel will be indistinguishable from the air sentries that guarded the ancient tower of Altra, as described by Drusus Leverian."
