In the early Orokin Empire, elites wore Innodem as a symbolic reminder to defend the defenseless. The tradition fell out of style, but nostalgic elites sometimes acknowledged the sentiment in the form of a gift. The Void amplifies that ideal. Void energy strengthens Innodem gliding aerial attacks and the wielder is increasingly resilient as the perform finisher attacks in Incarnon Form.

Innodem is an Incarnon ceremonial dagger. Once its Incarnon form is unlocked, Tenno can transform this weapon in battle by executing a Heavy Attack with a Melee Combo of 5x or higher, increasing the weapon's range and attack speed, enabling Innodem's Incarnon Resilience, and causing aim glide melee attacks to throw projectiles.
