During Rathuum MissionsEdit

Starting missionEdit

When starting Tier 1 Arena
  • "Mongrels, blood-starved morons – are you ready? [crowd cheers] Let the Rathuum begin!"
When starting Tier 2 Arena
  • "Grineer, you sweet belligerent savages, are you hungry for justice?! [crowd cheers] Is that...? Looky here, the Tenno are back? My, my, these snakes crave sunshine today."
When starting Tier 3 Arena
  • "It's Round 3, the accused still live, and the Tenno still fight. Color me disappointed. [crowd boos] Executioners, show these genetic rejects how to kill."
When starting Endless Rathuum (only during Operation: Rathuum)
  • "Executioners, pass judgment!"


  • "Grineer, look! Today's Executioners are more brutal than you are ugly. They love their Queens. [crowd cheers]"
  • "Today's accused are coward deserters. They hate their Queens so much, they're using Tenno to defend them. [crowd boos] What more do you need to know?"
  • "They abandoned their Queens – why? [crowd boos] Maybe they're too smart for their own good. Not something you maggot-minds will need to worry about."
  • "Do you one-thought-wonders want to see the traitors cry? [crowd cheers] Do you want to see them torn to pieces? [crowd cheers] Oh, I knew it, Grineer, that's exactly what you genetic rot-bags are gonna get!"
Upon Executioner death
  • "The Executioners have fumbled. Typical."
Upon Tenno death
  • "Ouch, that can't feel good."
  • "What a performance. I can feel your hunger, like you want to rip that condender's throat with your teeth."
  • "Down you go. I'd say better luck next time, but you's dead."
  • "Too easy."
When Tenno are winning
  • "This isn't basic training; this is Rathuum. Get out there and deliver your judgment."
  • "The snakes lead."
  • "Come on, Executioners, you're flopping 'round like dying skates out there. It's embarrassing. Are you going to make me do this myself?"
Idle dialogue
  • "That Executioner's a mean one, downright brutal. Makes me smile."
  • "Our Executioners near their final judgment."
  • "All you Grineer are sick in the head. I do respect that."
  • "Come on, Tenno, you're like a Corpus drone with a dead battery, you ain't getting no air time."
  • "Hear that, Executioners? They're cheering for you."
  • "You're wasting the court's time, Tenno."
  • "No, no, no. Just stop and die. You're wasting this court's time."
  • "Where do you think you are? Your Dojo? This is Rathuum."
  • "Oh, you should've all been strangled in your tubes."
  • "Hear that, snakes? You got an audience and they wanna see you bleed."
  • "Watching this one fight is like watching a fly trying to swat a lion."
  • "Come one, Executioners, this is all you've been good at, don't mess it up."

Victory during Operation: RathuumEdit

Upon Tenno winning Tier 1 Arena
  • "Not good enough. We need proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Try again, snakes."
Upon Tenno winning Tier 2 Arena
  • "Another win for the Tenno. THAT'S BAD, you...! Do I have to do every damn thing myself?"
Upon Tenno winning Tier 3 Arena
  • "Another Tenno win... [crowd boos] No, no, no! This is not what was supposed to happen. The Steel Meridian have not been pardoned. This is not over!"

Pre-Update 18Edit

Lotus TransmissionsEdit

  • Lotus: "Kela de Thaym holds a position of influence in the Grineer Court. Eliminating Kela should create a power vacuum inside the Grineer leadership and weaken Grineer influence in this System."
  • Lotus: "Kela is a product of the Sisters. She is built for combat. Much of her body has been replaced with combat augmentations. Approach her with caution."
  • Lotus: "All Grineer females undergo mandatory military training. Kela in particular revels in combat. She extended her term for more than a decade before returning to the Court. Do not underestimate her."
  • Lotus: "Kela keeps an entourage of highly-trained Grineer marines with her. We suspect that they are as much for her entertainment as they are for protection."
  • Lotus: "Intel suggests Kela is armed with explosive weaponry – her personal modification of the Bombard design. Take any necessary precautions to ensure this mission's success."
  • Lotus: "I'm detecting a bio-mechanical signature nearby. Be ready for anything."

Mission and Battle TauntsEdit

  • "Come, [PLAYERNAME]... Your end awaits you..."
  • "The Sisters... They will reward me well... When I present your head to them..."
  • "Be warned... I will not abide your intrusion, Tenno..."
  • "First... I will kill you, [PLAYERNAME]... Then... I will eradicate every last member of [CLANNAME]!"
  • "This Tenno... It continues to mock me with its insolence..."
  • "Tenno, in my domain... No matter... They shan't survive long..."
  • "I know your name, [PLAYERNAME].... There is little you can hide from me.... Run... while you can...."
  • "You have forced my hand, [PLAYERNAME].... Know that it was Kela de Thaym who ended your existence...."
  • "This Tenno lives.... This interests me.... I must learn more...."
