“You're not supposed to be in here! You're going to ruin the surprise!”The following section contains spoilers.
GHOULS: Part Four is the fourth issue of the WARFRAME: Ghouls graphic novel series, a joint project between Digital Extremes and Top Cow Productions. Released in April 18, 2018, the comic depicts the Lotus's Tenno and her allies discovering Orokin secrets beyond their imagining, only to find out that they are not alone in the vessel.
Trapped within an Infested vessel and unable to contact the Lotus, Mag and Little Duck defend themselves against the incoming horde while Mitsuki could only hide under the protection of the two soldiers. In concern for the girl, who was weakened by the Ghoul poison inflicted on her, Mag and Little Duck continues to look for Arogya Medica within the vessel whilst defending themselves.
The Solaris operative was eventually disarmed and overwhelmed by one of the swarm. With the help of Mitsuki, Little Duck manages to escape certain death, but the girl was not as fortunate, having sustained a fatal attack from one of the Infested. After fending off the horde assaulting them, they continued on their journey while carrying the dying child in hand, arriving at what seemed to be the Arogya Medica: a room with a peculiar Orokin pod.
In the meantime, the Grineer forces led by Captain Vor had already arrived at the very same Orokin gate. Much like Mag and her allies, they were immediately ambushed by the Infested the second they pass through the threshold. Things seem to get more dire as the Grineer's useless attempt to hack an Orokin console instead activated the Medica protocol throughout the ship, causing Neural Sentry drones to float across the vessel, implanting themselves onto the faces of Grineer and Infested alike and corrupting them in the process. Now, not only they have to deal with the Infested, they also have to deal with the drones as well as their corrupted allies.
Back to the Tenno's side, Mag, faintly seeing a vision of her awakening, puts Mitsuki into the pod and began interfacing with a console nearby. Activating the device, Mitsuki screamed in pain as a surge of electricity ran over her. As the device finishes, the Ostron girl gets back on her feet and takes off her blindfold, her eyes completely modified, looking at the Tenno and the Solaris operative as if she was never blind.
- In Mag's memories of her awakening, she could see an image of Shadow Stalker and Hunhow, this is a plot hole as the bipartite partnership that hasn't happened until The Second Dream – long after Captain Vor was defeated in Vor's Prize.
