Compose her song and then conduct the mighty Mandachord, turning bass, beat and melody into an anthem of devastation.

This is Octavia, the melodic, the maestro.

If music be the food of death... play on, Tenno.

Release Date: March 24th, 2017

Rhythmic and imaginative, Octavia conducts her myriad of siren songs and ambient anthems through the mystical Mandachord. Entice enemies with musical instruments that inflict melodic maladies, as the Tenno chorus synchronize their rhythm to sound the drums of war.

Octavia was composed in Update 20.0
