Edit Tab

Become enraptured by the song of devastation. Through her, the Jade Light can be a force of destruction or a source of support.
For the IconOrokinOn Orokin execution method, see Jade Light.

Release Date: June 18th, 2024

Angelic allure graces the assembly in blissful song, hymns threefold of wartime armistice and abhorrent passion. Echo the Naga Drums to TennoIcon Tenno heartbeats, delivered thus to the IconOrokinOn Orokin a coup d'état. Amidst the anthems of devastation, a solemn soul sings proud, her audience awestruck by oblivion's embrace. Blessed be the Lucent Virtuoso, Jade, whose glorious choir casts forth a crescendo of emerald blaze. Before heavenly ascent, thou shall behold one final glimpse: sublime plumes unfurl to seraphic wings most divine. Jade descended from the heavens in Update 36.0 (2024-06-18).

Spoilers

You're going to be a father, Sorren.

But... the Legems! If the Lords found out-

You'll take care of us, always, won't you?
—Jade and Sorren

Before becoming a Warframe, Jade was engaged in an unsanctioned relationship with Sorren. The desire to sire a child, which was considered a violation of the Orokin legems, worried Sorren. Both were presumably turned into Warframes thereafter as punishment: Sorren became Stalker while Jade was converted during her pregnancy. As a Warframe, Jade was bestowed with the Jade Light and served as executioner.

During The Collapse where the Tenno rebelled against the Orokin, Stalker was unable to protect his Orokin masters, but was spared by the Jade Warframe. According to Ordis, Jade vanished after The Collapse, with information on her scarce as if redacted.

In present day, Jade has fallen critically ill and Stalker attempts to nurse her to health, forcing him to turn to the Tenno Operator for help. While attempting to heal her and catching the attention of Corpus Captain Xeto, the Operator discovers that Jade is not fighting her illness: she is revealed to be conceiving and passes during childbirth. Xeto, upon hearing the cries of the child, orders her forces to stand down and allow the Stalker to escape.

After reminiscing his promise to protect his family, Stalker names the child either Sirius or Orion.

Because of the circumstances during Jade's conversion into a Warframe, any copies of her, like the playable Jade, also appear to be pregnant.

Notes

Trivia

  • Jade is the 57th unique Warframe to be released.
  • In the Pax East 2024 live audience Devstream 178, Jade's update teaser splash art was revealed with the Stalker's Landing Craft looming in the background. In Devstream 179, Jade's concept art, theme, signature weapons, and alt helmet were shown. In Devstream 180 her full gameplay reveal was demonstrated by a prerecording from [DE]Pablo.
    • Notably, considerable effort was done to hide her pregnancy prior to her introduction to the game: Teaser art either featured her from behind or in one case, with Harmony Harmony obscuring her stomach, while gameplay footage and animations never showed her from up front.
  • Jade takes several inspirations from Angels from Abrahamic religions. Most notable in the numerous sets of wings she has and her link to choral music.
    • Her dress and the covers wrapped around her chest and her helmet are feather-like protrusions with cloth physics; they stay folded and compact when idle, then expand into angelic wings during Idle Animations and GloryonHigh130xWhite Glory on High.
    • Symbols for SymphonyofMercy130xWhite Symphony of Mercy's three auras resemble biblical angel's wings in various shapes and forms.
    • Additionally, Jade is named "Choir" in the game files.
  • She is the first Warframe whose name starts with the letter 'J'. At the time of her announcement, there was 1 remaining letter in the English Alphabet 'U', that did not have an associated Warframe.
  • She is the next female Warframe in line after TrinityIcon272 Trinity, EquinoxIcon272 Equinox, WispIcon272 Wisp, YareliIcon272 Yareli, GyreIcon272 Gyre, and DagathIcon272 Dagath to wear a skirt or dress with cloth physics.
  • Jade is also the name NyxIcon272 Nyx originally went by during development.
  • She is the first Warframe to have two Aura mod slots as her unique passive.
  • She is the second Warframe to have three Signature Weapons after GaraIcon272 Gara.
  • She is the third Warframe after ProteaIcon272 Protea and DanteIcon272 Dante with a built-in universal Aura polarity.
  • She is the third Warframe after TitaniaIcon272 Titania and HildrynIcon272 Hildryn to use a flight-based fourth ability associated with an Exalted Weapon.
  • She is the eleventh Warframe after LimboIcon272 Limbo, HildrynIcon272 Hildryn, WispIcon272 Wisp, TitaniaPrimeIcon272 Titania Prime, ProteaIcon272 Protea, XakuIcon272 Xaku, SevagothIcon272 Sevagoth, GyreIcon272 Gyre, QorvexIcon272 Qorvex, and DanteIcon272 Dante with a unique dodge roll animation, where Jade dashes with her arms outstretched, or twirls during sidesprings, along with the wings on her torso spreading.
  • Jade's weapons are parallel to the Stalker's: Dread Dread vs. Evensong Evensong bow, Despair Despair vs. Cantare Cantare throwing knives, and Hate Hate vs. Harmony Harmony scythe.
  • Jade's component blueprints were accidentally included in Dagath's Hollow in the Clan Dojo upon the initial release of the Jade Shadows update. The blueprints were subsequently removed on Hotfix 36.0.1 (2024-06-19), and all players who bought copies of Jade's component blueprints this way were allowed to keep them.
    • This unintentional feature ends up showcasing parallels between the two Warframes, as Jade and DagathIcon272 Dagath were both in relationships forbidden in Orokin society prior to their conversion to Warframes, though whereas Jade and Sorren's relationship was borne out of genuine love and led to Jade bearing a child, Dagath's relationship with Corphel & Irilia was only done to satisfy the couple's lust and ended with them dead after the couple failed to kill Dagath.

Passive

Where sacred light shines the song of life begins, as the shadow of time marches evermore toward deathly silence. As The Anointed, Jade possesses two passives:

  1. Access to 2 Aura mod slots in her Arsenal loadouts to assist herself and her squadmates.
  2. Enemies that enter Light'sJudgment130xWhite Light's Judgment well and GloryonHigh130xWhite Glory on High's primary fire at a 10% chance afflict enemies with the Judgements debuff as an overhead icon visual, applying 50% Damage Vulnerability lasting for 10 seconds.
    • Enemies killed while debuffed by Judgments extends SymphonyofMercy130xWhite Symphony of Mercy's duration by 2 seconds.
    • Glory on High's Alternate Fire can detonate Judgments, with increased damage and range.
      • Detonated Judgments have an increased 1.5x explosion radius while inside Light's Judgment.
