During Octavia's AnthemEdit

Searching the Mandachord partsEdit

  • "If you build the Mandachord, I will reward you with the most essential thing I own: my knowledge. I have data pertaining to the Mandachords history and function."
  • "First, you must find its component parts. Ordis has been informed of their last known location."
  • "Do you hear that music? An echo of the Mandachords sweet harmony. It takes me to another place, another life, where I was...."
  • "Please disregard my tangent. The parts are here. Follow the sound to find them."
  • "A Mandachord part! For most Cephalons, music is thought to be a glitch of evolution and language. It seems to short circuit an organic minds pattern recognition function. A confusion they find... pleasurable."
  • "Fantastic! A second part! For me, music is a lattice, a support to which my vast knowledge clings. Have you ever felt that way? A song that anchors a memory? How a melody or verse returns you to a place you thought forgotten?"
  • "Curiosity has rewarded you. I yearn to hear its music. Return to your foundry, and construct the Mandachord at once."

Constructing the MandachordEdit

  • "The Mandachord. Its purpose defies all logic, for all it produces is sound. An artifact of irrationality, and yet, I know its power is so much more. Let me explain how it works."
  • "The Mandachord? Of course, the Mandachord. Curious. I may have a syndrome decoding error in my archive."
  • "I seem to have made an error. Apologies. I do have the promised Mandachord data. Let me correct this. I will lead you to the location where it was originally obtained."

Searching for the first song fragmentEdit

  • "Intriguing. I remember these caves, but not the Mandachords relationship to it. You will need to explore deeper. Let your curiosity guide you, as it does my every thought."
  • "My data suggested the brutish and disinterested Grineer are searching for sunken Orokin riches to exploit. Wouldn't it be interesting if we were seeking the same?"
  • "What are the Grineer doing here? This doesn't make sense. Curious one, are you searching for something?"
  • "Oh, this is interesting. I recognize that object. A Hydraulus. An orokin era instrument that produced its sound from water. If I had a humor precept I would construct an ironic witticism regarding its submerged state. How would Ordis say it?"
  • "It's damaged, but I wonder if there are trace stress lines from when it was in use. I may be able to-"
  • "Strange. I have no archival entry. But...but I know this. It is a piece of Octavia's Anthem. Could this data be compatible with the Mandachord?"
  • "I remember. Lua. There is more of the Anthem on Lua. Who are you? What do you want? Oh no, it's happening again!"

Searching the second song fragmentEdit

  • "Why have we come to Lua? Have you located the next fragment?"
  • "Re-calibrating. Oh yes, you are correct. My records indicate that a fragment was previously discovered in the vicinity. Will you find it?"
  • "Lua? Why did we come here? I... I have asked you this already."
  • "Simaris was right. This corruption is not benign. I am vanishing."
  • "Sentients. But how did they know-? What? He's just an Old War memory. Get out! I won't let you take- my body! My children! I am here!"
  • "Tenno! You have to- Children! Find the Anthem!"
  • "The Hydraulus! Stop them, they want to- Destroy it!"
  • "That song! I- The last fragment! Ordis, tell your operator I am sorry. I am so sorry! I keep forgetting for- for- It's happening again!"

Under attack from HunhowEdit

  • "Ordis. I remember- Nothing! Now I will reach across the Weave and claim you, one who is called Ordis!"
  • "Such a beautiful song."
  • "Ordis! Stay away!"

In the datascapeEdit

  • "Is that music?"
  • "Parity error. I know this song. Who am I?"
  • "I am Suda! ...Time sync error. Curious. Why are we here presently? Why do I hear music?"
  • "A sentient? How did I survive? Did you assist me, Simaris?"
  • "Of course. Still. I am grateful to have benefited from your... glitches. I will share my archives with you. As for you Tenno. You are most likely interested in the rest of the Mandachord records. In Octavia."
