"Drones will be here any second."
"D.W.A.R.F.s, whatever. The Doctor invented them. They're everywhere."
Grant Ward/Framework and Jemma Simmons[src]

The D.W.A.R.F.s (Drones Wirelessly Automated to Retrieve Forensics) are virtual recreations of the real-world S.H.I.E.L.D. drones of the same name that are used by HYDRA inside the Framework.


The D.W.A.R.F.s were a Framework recreation of the drones of the same name used in the real world. Just like their real-world counterpart, the D.W.A.R.F.s were created by Leo Fitz. However, due to Fitz being a high-ranking member of the totalitarian organization HYDRA in the framework, they were not used as a forensic device but as a means of surveillance of the population.

A D.W.A.R.F. took a picture of Jemma Simmons after she had infiltrated the Framework in order to rescue her friends who were trapped in the virtual reality. The images were transmitted to HYDRA, who ordered a manhunt in order to arrest her. When Simmons reunited with Daisy Johnson, Grant Ward helped them to escape the surveillance from the D.W.A.R.F.s.[1]

Ward later set up a meeting for Simmons and Phil Coulson to contact the S.H.I.E.L.D. resistance. While preparing for the meeting, Simmons and Coulson hid from a D.W.A.R.F. monitoring the facility next to them. Elsewhere, Hope Mackenzie reclaimed the remnants of a crashed drone for her own mechanical projects.[2]

Once they escaped from the Triskelion, Melinda May and Johnson took cover from the D.W.A.R.F.s, especially one which monitored a secret facility used by S.H.I.E.L.D.[3]

Like everything else in the Framework, the D.W.A.R.F.s were deleted when Aida shut down the entire program.[4]
