Early life and Carreer.Edit
His background and upbringing remain a mystery, so Tenno's life, in essence, was Tabula Rasa until he began working for the Agency. And it was, literally, a role he was born to play. Even considering his relative youth, Tenno quickly became the Agency's top "cleaner," able to accomplish any assignment no matter the location, the risk or the operational FUBAR, which would inevitably take place due to the nature of his missions.
And what was the nature of his missions? Hayden Tenno was assigned to clean up after the operational messes left all over the globe. Whether an agent went down or failed an assignment, Tenno had to go in and tie up all the loose ends into a nice, pacified, quiet bow.
At some point before the Lasria mission, Tenno had an operational failure, which resulted in a demotion in status and reputation. Details of this assignment are classified, though it involved the slaughter of many people he feels did not need – or deserve – to die.
Events of darkSectorEdit
As Dark Sector begins, Tenno is offered redemption by his Assignment Director and sent into Lasria with the promise that this will be his last mission. Tenno is perfectly suited for this job, since his borderline superhuman tolerance for pain, his relationship with missing Agency operative Robert Mezner and his previous involvement with another rogue Nadia Sudek gives him a physical edge and an emotional stake in the Lasrian problem.
Upon arrival in Lasria – and his subsequent infection by a new strain of experimental nano-virus – Hayden realizes that in many ways, his entire tenure at the Agency has been a set-up for this particular assignment. The Technocyte virus begins to change Hayden, creating a metal carapace sheath along his right arm. Soon after the initial infection, Hayden is able to manifest a specialized weapon from the organic metal, sprouting a curved metallic Glaive that erupts from his forearm and comes armed with varied, ever-growing lethal properties.
Using the very method of Lasria's destruction as a means to save the ravaged Russian city – and to redeem his own wounded soul, Hayden continues with his mission. They sent their fallen angel into a locale that would ensure either one of two results: his death, or worse -- a successful completion of the mission, which would, by its very nature, change Hayden into something more than man… but less than human…
The First TennoEdit
Not much is known about Hayden's later life, except that he unified mankind and that with his rule began the Orokin Period, a golden age for all of humanity, he also founded the Tenno, powerful warriors who can manipulate reality, masters of sword and gun and wielders of the Warframe Power Armors, based on Hayden's Armor. Quite a few of them wielded artificial Glaives to honor him. CITATION NEEDED
