The factions in WARFRAME are the civilizations and groups fighting for supremacy in the solar system; their conflict is the backdrop of the game's missions. Because nothing in the game indicates an alien origin of any faction, it is assumed that they all are human, trans-human, or created by humans.
The only playable faction are the Tenno. Other factions such as the Grineer, the Corpus, theInfested, the Sentient and the Orokin are presented as adversaries, while the Syndicates and the Wild are mostly neutral, but can act as allies or enemies to the Tenno.

The Orokin, also known as the Golden Lords, was an ancient civilization that ruled over the Origin System in the distant past. During what was known as the Orokin Era, they built technological masterpieces that surpass even present day technology while exercising complete dominion over the known world.
