Kurias are mysterious relics scattered throughout the origin system. They can be scanned with either Codex or Synthesis Scanners to unlock lines from an epic about the origin of the Twin Queens.


The Kuria Poem

The Tale of Two Sisters

#1 -
A Story once lost
Recovered by fate
The tale of two sisters
Who bore the same face

#2 - 
Born one quiet morning
Amidst the great war
All elders were gathered
For this life's new dawn

#3 - 
Confused and bewildered
They judged them amiss
For they never witnessed
Two self-same as these

#4 -
A mirrored reflection
Had come into life
By will of their father
Kept safe from the knife

#5 -
Their sameness was shunned
As slave-like and soiled
They tended their strays
Rejected by all

#6 -
As both Girls Matured
Their bond grew in depth
They had the same poise
Same senses, same strength

#7 -
The Uprising came
And Spread like a weed
An army of copy-men
Ferocious and Free

#8 -
And much like the sea
They came just like waves
For years they fought on
For years we remained

#9 -
Like chisel to stone
War molded the twins
Who ravaged the hordes
Became legend to them

#10 -
They had a deep strength
That came from Each other
Unlike all these copies
Identical, but not brothers

#11 -
The copies could see it
They yearned for it too
If the twins could do it
Perhaps they could too

#12 -
The twins had attained
Something more than a whole
A true understanding
Of each other soul

#13 -
The copies became believers
One by one bowed to the twins
And led forth by their new masters
They ravaged the colonies

#14 -
Now a power to follow
Not a force to be fought
From the ashes of war
The Twin Queens were wrought



Upon scanning half of the Kurias, players will receive the following message from the unknown entity Olemedi:


So keen are your senses
You have proven your skill
Found most of my Kurias
But some remain still

Attached to this message is the Kuria Emblem cosmetic.


Upon scanning three quarters of the Kurias, players will receive the following message from Olemedi:


Inherently driven
Deterred by no risk
Found most of my Kurias
But some remain still

Attached to this message is the Kuria Glyph.


Upon scanning all of the Kurias, players will receive the following message from Olemedi:


You sought and you found
Relentless indeed
Keep one of the statues
As proof of your deed

Attached to this message is the Kuria Statuette decoration.

Guides (External Links)[]


  • Each Kuria has a specific location within certain tile sets, regardless of the planet they occur on.
    • Though they can always be found in their respective locations, they can only be scanned once.
  • Kurias can be marked with waypoints, using their own unique icon.
  • Kurias will emit a faint golden glow while aiming with scanners.
  • The Synthesis Scanner's Cross-Matrix Widget will not trigger when scanning Kuria.
  • Helios cannot scan Kurias.


  • The Golden Instinct Helminth ability will target unscanned Kuria.
  • Kurias emit a distinct chiming sound while nearby, which can reveal their locations to players.
    • This can also be heard when viewing the Kuria in the codex.
    • Turning the music off can assist with hearing the chime the Kurias emit.
  • Another method for searching for Kurias is to scan/destroy/kill every object/enemy with a 50m radius (the max detection range of the scanner), until the scanner stops beeping. After scanning everything, if your scanner is still beeping, there may be a Kuria nearby.
    • Fragments will not beep if they have already been completed.
    • Objects will beep from nearby rooms but will not have a red/green aura unless you are within the same room.
      • Certain cells will have secret areas that prevent scannable objects revealing a red/green aura but will still cause the scanner to beep.
    • Corpses will not beep even if they can be scanned.


  • Prior to Update 17.0 (2015-07-31), Kuria were small, low-resolution cat statues decorated with rings reminiscent of Frost PrimeIcon272.png Frost Prime's helmet. These statues could not be scanned, and were simply easter eggs dubbed "Orokitties".
    • In their current state, the Kuria's "horns" vaguely resemble the Worm Queen's "pigtails".
  • Though they resemble Fragments in function, the Kuria occupy the Objects section in the Codex, likely due to them predating Fragments as a whole.
