Invader Tenn is an Irken Invader, assigned to the planet Meekrob, home to a race of mysterious and intelligent beings of pure energy who are sworn enemies of the Irken Empire. Tenn is almost certainly a rather competent or essential Invader, as the Almighty Tallest decided to send her a Megadoomer X-3 Combat Stealth Mech during the episode "Megadoomer", to assist her in the infiltration of Meekrob.
Unfortunately, due to a rebellious postal slave named Smikka Smikka Smoodoo, she was sent a pack of malfunctioning SIR Units instead, which proceeded to destroy her base, and almost certainly her cover. Meanwhile, the Megadoomer ended up being sent to Zim instead.
She is one of the few female Irken Invaders, and was seen in two different episodes, although her appearance differed slightly between them.
She looks quite a bit like Zim, although female, and with pinker eyes. She also speaks in a nasally voice.
Not much is known about her personality, but she had been panicking when her base was being destroyed by the malfunctioning SIR units, unable to do anything. As stated above, she is evidently a skilled invader, as she was assigned to a difficult enemy planet to conquer and the Almighty Tallest decided to send her a Megadoomer.
Role in Invader Zim
If the series had continued, Tenn would have played a major part in the untitled season two finale and the series finale "Invader Dib". Tenn would have been discovered by the Meekrob, likely due to the malfunctioning SIR Unit incident, and held prisoner.
Both Skoodge and Zim would have saved her life in the episode, but it's unclear what would become of her afterwards whether she was killed or help save her homeworld from vengeful aliens conquered by the Irkens.
She also would have appeared prior to that episode in "Top of the Line", which was scripted but never released. In it, she would have entered her SIR Unit in a series of contests to determine if hers was the best.

Facts of Doom
- It's interesting to point out that Tenn's mission may have been doomed even if she had gotten the Megadoomer, as it is more than likely she would've been captured by the Meekrob due the flaw in the cloaking device exposing her.
- It is possible that the Tallest respect Tenn as both a soldier and Invader since they decided to send her the Megadoomer to aid in her mission to conquer planet Meekrob. The fact that they were willing to start a rescue mission when she was discovered by the Meekrob further cements that respect, since it is doubtful they would have done this for any other Invader.
- It's not known if Tenn will ever appear in the comics at this point.
- She's the only known Invader whose mission seems to be failing, and indirectly it's because of Zim, as the Tallest's hatred of him caused the events that led to her mission being compromised.
- The fact that Tenn looks quite a bit like Zim may hint at the possibility that the two of them may actually be related since its possible that the Control Brains used similar DNA to create them.
- Next to Tak, Tenn is the most well known female Irken in the show.
