Don't get caught on the wrong end of a whipcrack of Khora's steel. It may be the last thing you hear.

TriviaEdit

  • Khora was announced in Devstream 100.
  • Khora's abilities have undergone revision during the development process due to player feedback on Damage 2.5. Initially designed to change between Physical damage types (Impact b Impact, Puncture b Puncture, & Slash b Slash), her finalized kit was showcased on Devstream 109 with the dependency on damage types removed.
    • As a result, Venari gained a new behavior mode selection feature.
  • The inspiration for Khora's name could come from the Greek Goddess Kore, or Persephone, Queen of the Underworld, a theme atributing to Kore's transition from a minor nature goddess, to a mature, confident queen. Her mythological husband Hades also being a God of Riches (such as gems and precious metals), could attribute to her access of metal themed abilities.
    • It is also the modern name for a type of free-standing Ancient Greek sculpture portraying an emotionless maiden symbol of the ideal, transcending above the hardships of the world.
    • Another inspiration could be centered around Plato's term khôra which is neither being nor nonbeing but an interval between in which the "forms" were originally held; it "gives space" and has maternal overtones (a womb, matrix).  Which seems to be the theme of the Ghoul Journal Fragments.
  • Khora's design was inspired from an arachnid, Hence the abdomen-like skirt and web-like abilities.
  • Khora is the second Warframe after InarosIcon272 Inaros to have a built-in polarity in the Exilus mod slot. An Exilus Adapter is still required to unlock the slot, but a Forma is not necessary unless changing it to another polarity.

PassiveEdit

For more information on Khora's Kavat, please refer to the tabs below and visit the Venari ability article.


Khora's ferocious Kavat, Venari, fights alongside her with steadfast zeal. Venari is an exclusive Companion for the KhoraIcon272 Khora Warframe, integrated as her signature passive ability. Venari will spawn beside Khora when the player first enters a mission, as a permanent companion that lasts until killed.

While Venari is alive, Khora passively gains a 10% movement speed boost. If Venari is killed, she will respawn beside Khora after 45 seconds, or instantly if summoned via the third ability for an energy cost. Both passive features are tied to Khora's Venari130xDark Venari ability allowing her to be modified.

Additionally, Venari is an independent AI-controlled entity from Khora that possesses unique interactions:

  • Venari automatically becomes available for customization in the Arsenal by default, when Khora is equipped as the player's current Warframe.
  • Unlike regular kavats, Venari is completely disassociated from the Incubator, therefore she does not occupy an open Stasis slot or require DNA Stabilizer.
  • Venari behaves similar to other Kavats. She will follow Khora and seek out nearby enemies to attack them with her bite and claws, occasionally performing wall attacks. Additionally, she can perform special effects based on her current battle posture.
    • Venari does not perform parkour maneuvers unlike other Kavats and Kubrows.
    • Venari will teleport to Khora or her marked target if she is too far away.
    • Venari's position on the minimap is tracked via a blue Venari icon.
  • When killed, Venari will disappear and wait to respawn instead of entering Bleedout.
  • Venari's UI is displayed above Khora's ability icons on the HUD. Her UI consists of her ability icon, her name, the battle posture cycle selection wheel, the currently selected posture, and her Shield and Health bars.
    • Upon switching battle posture, the name of the selected posture will briefly appear beside Venari's icon on her UI.
    • While Venari is dead, her shield and health bars are hidden from view, as her respawn timer is displayed on the Venari ability icon.

Due to there being no Companion Mods in Conclave, Venari cannot be modded.

Venari is customizable by accessing the Arsenal. When Khora is equipped, Venari's dedicated loadout section becomes available with Appearance tab for modification.

  • Can be colored with Kavat Gene-Masking Kit palettes.
  • Cannot equip alternative Kavat skins and armor sets.
  • Venari's eye color and regalia color will match Khora's chosen energy color.
  • Venari uses a custom model based on the Feral Kavat. Alongside other similar features, Venari is larger in size compared to other Kavats, has metallic lining spread throughout her body, and a single tail with an interchangeable tip, which transforms depending on her current battle posture.
