Discovering Specimen VK-7

Sigor Savah was a Corpus morphology specialist that worked under Nef Anyo's Venusian terraforming expedition. Tasked with decoding Orokin gene record and reviving select specimens for study, he came across an unusually large Kavat with atypical behavioural characteristics he would name Specimen VK-7. Sigor Savah believed VK-7 would make a fortune, but when he prepared for a surgical examination, the creature had willed itself back to life. The scientist would learn that VK-7 could adapt to its Corpus visitors, learning their schedules to formulate a plan for escape.
After VK-7's escape, it would proceed to raid Corpus hive sites and none who had attacked the beast survived. When Sigor Savah confronted the creature, the beast revealed a wound to him as act of trust. Placing loyalty above profit, Sigor Savah found himself tending to VK-7's wounds. The creature then delivered the scientist a severed hand of Orokin construction: Khora.
The Corpus, naming VK-7 as the Horror of the Hives, deemed the creature a threat unworthy of study. Sigor Savah promptly betrayed the Corpus to rescue the creature and was sentenced to be executed. VK-7 would then return the favor and saved the scientist from execution. Knowing both of them could no longer stay on Venus, the pair fled for a conveyor bound for orbit, but the Corpus had caught up to them. Giving the scientist one final glance, VK-7 activated the conveyor and lunged at her pursuers, sacrificing herself to save Sigor Savah.
Now a "better man than a scientist", Sigor Savah would then dedicate his life to searching for Khora's remains. Believing her to be on the Plains of Eidolon, he left his journal in the care of Konzu. Cephalon Simaris later received Khora's blueprints from The Quills and synthesized a Kavat from it. The Kavat disappeared into his Sanctuary Onslaught, waiting for a worthy Tenno to claim Khora.
On the Plains of Eidolon
After years of searching for Khora, he finally resides on the Plains of Eidolon. There he conducted interviews with the locals on the Grineer Ghouls, who are known to have raided villages and disrupted the Ostron's way of life. As a former researcher, he documented their behavior and ferocity in his journal, where he also encrypted his discoveries of Specimen VK-7.
