It's touching to watch her character gain confidence through interacting with the player and the rest of the crew, and she radiates fierce devotion to Shepard "You are real," she tells him near the end of Mass Effect 3 after he's given cause to doubt his own humanity.
Similarly, Garrus is a ridiculously popular romance choice among FemShep players. Even though both Garrus and Shepard express a bit of incredulity at the idea of getting together and I'm still not sure how they're supposed to, you know, do itthe pairing works beautifully. It helps that voice actor Brandon Keener imbues Garrus with exactly the right mix of charm and earnest bashfulness.
I see Garrus as Shepard's best friend, whether male or female; they're together for the majority of all three games, and it's easy to see how circumstances might drive these two warriors into each others' arms.
The scene where Shepard and Garrus say goodbye to each other before the final battle is absolutely wrenching, and actor Jennifer Hale's broken-voiced delivery of the final set of lines is dead-perfect. It feels like a punch in the gut. Where games like the Mass Effect series get leeway, though, is via the player's direct involvement in the drama and decision-making. But if you've played the games and gotten attached, it's hard to watch the characters saying goodbye to each other.
It feels like hacking off bits of yourself and leaving them behind. I was lucky enough to be able to spend some time after he died with the other soldiers in his company, and they echoed a sentiment I've heard expressed before both in fiction and in life: They fight for each other. That bond made a full "role-playing" replay of all three games difficult.
This is coming from the guy who's never done a "light side" playthrough of Knights of the Old Republic—I've force-choked my way across the galaxy a half-dozen times and laughed as I did it. My first time through Mass Effect years ago was played as a horrible reporter-punching crazy person.
After the mission is complete she becomes even more distraught.Mass Effect 3: Garrus & Tali flirts and romance (all scenes)
Sheer curiosity alone would have probably been enough for most players to decide to keep the Geth on the Normandy instead of sell it to Cerberus. However, if Shepard does decide to sell or never activate Legion, it comes back to bite Shepard in the ass.
This room in the Cerberus Headquaters can also carry another eerie reminder. If Shepard waits too long to answer the distress call from Grissom Academy, Cerberus will capture Jack and her biotic students. Then when Shepard hits the Cerberus HQ, they can find audio files of Jack being tortured and reprogrammed. And finally they will encounter Jack transformed into a Cerberus phantom.
Both Jack and Legion will appear as enemies if the requisite choices are made for double the horror. Several resourceful ME 2 players on PC have discovered unused game assets if you can finagle the restricted squad mates onto your team earlier than the final product intended.
Tali will remark that she and Garrus bunkering down is just like old times. Also on Omega, you can get some humorous reactions to the alien plague from Tali. That means securing their loyalty to Shepard by completing their loyalty missions. Most of the missions are unaffected in how they play out if you postpone them. With one huge exception.
You have a choice. All units, hold fire. Shepard-Commander, I must go to them. It's the only way.
Legion, the answer to your question Admiral Raan, I heard your ship made a crash landing. Glad you made it out in one piece. I was listening over the radio, if Han'Gerrel hadn't stopped- Shepard: We've taken heavy losses. I don't know if we can Where are we supposed to go?
You are welcome to return to Rannoch, Admiral Raan. No, I'm sorry, Commander. Legion sacrificed itself to give us all intelligence. It will be honored. Shopping for another house? It's a buyer's market. I know working with the geth will be difficult. I'm coming with you. I wasn't going to ask. Because I respect you, damn it! You think I don't want you to come with me? I don't know how much time we have left.
I don't know if we can beat the Reapers. But whatever happens, I want to be with you. I bet you say that to every guy that gets you a homeworld. Only the cute ones. It will be years before we can live without our suits completely, but right now Shepard, let me tell you something that I've learned the hard way. You can pay a soldier to fire a gun. You can pay him to charge the enemy and take a hill.
But you can't pay him to believe. I don't follow, sir. When you went up against Sovereign, there was no good reason to believe you'd win. But your crew didn't seem to care — they went along anyway.

Your trip through the Omega 4 relay? That was a suicide mission if there ever was one. Yet there your crew was, standing beside you, proud to serve. With all you're facing out there, one thing impresses me most: I know everything hasn't gone as well as you'd hoped. Every war has its disagreements, so to speak.
But, your crew has done things no one else would even try — simply because you asked them to. That's what I need now. Shepard, you're in my chair. This chair's about the only damn thing you have left.
On the contrary, we have achieved everything I imagined Yeah, we all saw what you 'accomplished' on Sanctuary. What is the Catalyst, and how exactly will it help you control the Reapers? You'll have to ask the VI yourself; I'm done helping you. You think because I'm willing to use the enemy's tactics, they're no longer my enemy? Everything, Shepard, everything I've done has uplifted humanity, not only above other species in our galaxy, but over the Reapers! If you were willing to do everything it took, you'd have worked with me.
I don't think so How many have you killed? Together, we would already have the Catalyst and the Crucible. You're still not listening.
Destroying the Reapers would be the biggest mistake of our brief existence.
And nothing you say will ever convince me otherwise. I've given you every chance to listen to reason. Cerberus is done, and so are you. As always, you fail to grasp the obvious.
Cerberus isn't just an organisation or the people behind it. Cerberus is an idea; that idea is not so easily destroyed. Even if you win, you're too late to stop what's coming! She's one of the biggest intel brokers in the galaxy, and she's got some shady connections. Like a boyfriend who used to work for Cerberus I only worked with Cerberus to fight the Reapers. And you're not with them now, I know. If you were, you wouldn't get within a lightyear of Liara.
Is that a threat? I'm no commando but I've had a thousand years to learn to fight dirty. Nobody messes with my girl. That's not gonna happen! I only took these crap jobs to keep the Matriarchs happy that she's under control.
Just as long as we're clear. Nobody messes with MY girl. You have come too far. I had to find you. This is not your domain. You have breached the darkness. You killed a Reaper. I need to know why. They are the enemy.
Meet me at the bar by Kaeldahn : masseffect
One that seeks our extermination. I thought you were a Reaper. They are only echoes. We existed long before. Then what are you? Ann Bryson appears before them, as an avatar for Leviathan] Your mind belongs to me. Your memories give voice to our words. Your nature will be revealed to us. Why aren't you fighting back? You could help us win this war. Why the hell are you hiding down here? There is no war. There is only the Harvest. Then help us stop it. None have possessed the strength in past cycles.
Your own species could be destroyed with a single thought. But you are different. I have witnessed your actions in this cycle: The Reapers perceive you as a threat. And I must understand why. The lesser species were in our thrall, serving our needs. We grew more powerful, and they were cared for.
But we could not protect them from themselves. Over time, the species built machines that then destroyed them. Tribute does not flow from a dead race. To solve this problem, we created an intelligence with the mandate to preserve life at any cost.
As the intelligence evolved, it studied the development of civilizations. Its understanding grew until it found a solution. In that instant, it betrayed us. It chose our kind as the first harvest. From our essence, the first Reaper was created.
You call it Harbinger. You built that machine despite what you saw the other races experience. You cannot conceive of a galaxy that bends to your will. Every creature, every nation, every planet we discovered became our tools. We were above the concerns of the lesser species. The intelligence was envisioned as simply another tool.
And now we all pay the price for your mistake. There was no mistake, it still serves its purpose. How did the intelligence defeat you?
To find a solution, it required information - physical data drawn from organic life in the cosmos. It created an army of pawns that searched the galaxy, gathering this data.
There was no warning, no reason given when they turned against us. How did you remain hidden all this time? Our extermination was not complete. Some survived and found refuge in the dark corners of the galaxy.
I am their progeny. Over the cycles, the thrall races were controlled, removing traces of our existence as we directed them to. In this way, our survival was kept secret from the Reapers. Today, we reach out through the fragments and watch for discovery.
You mean the artifacts we found? They provide a window into the galaxy. Tools for exploring the events of this cycle from the safety of this world. Through them, we watch, we study, and remain in the shadows. Tell me about the Reapers. Each harvest ends with the birth of a Reaper. Perfect in its design. Each formed in Harbinger's image.
Each Reaper has the power to influence organics. Over countless cycles, this ability was refined, perfected, and gave rise to indoctrination.
