Purgatory, The Citadel
Kaycee drapes her arm over her daughter's shoulders. She can scarcely believe how quickly she's grown up. Just seems like yesterday that Ayrene was barely up to her knees, now a tall, slender, beautiful woman stands beside her. She gives her an affectionate squeeze, "So what do you think sweetie? I told you that I would take you dancing for your eighteenth birthday. This place good enough?"
Ayrene's eyes take in the flashing lights, the pounding music, the dancing patrons, and she smiles. "You really are the coolest dad ever. Mom would completely freak if she knew you brought me here."
Kaycee imagines the fury that would come down on her if her wife knew where they were. She shudders at the thought, "Don't remind me Aya. Now, shall we have some fun?"
She guides Ayrene over to the bar, raising a hand in greeting to the Turian bartender. "Raker! Long time no see!"
"Good to see you Shepard." He glances over at Ayrene. "Friend of y

Liara T'Soni-Shepard exits her skycar into the pouring rain, the gunmetal-grey skies blocking out the sun. She wears a simple black dress and carries a bouquet of white flowers from Thessia. The grieving doctor doesn't bother with an umbrella, instead letting the rain wash over her skin, mixing with her tears. She begins her slow walk towards the large group of people crowded underneath a wide awning, when suddenly a hand grips her shoulder reassuringly, and the rain stops. Looking over her shoulder, she finds Garrus holding an umbrella over her, his expression unreadable. He nods to her, his grip speaking volumes as he guides her towards the crowd. As they near the group, Liara notices that nearly everyone has shown up today.
Admiral Ashley Williams, clad in her dress blues, stands alongside Major James Vega along with a small platoon of Alliance men and women. High Chief Wrex, clad in his ceremonial armor, stands with his wife

Four streaks of blue later and they're off. Shepard walks slowly into the shallows, feeling the sand between her toes, when something shiny catches her eye. Bending down she picks up a beautiful white seashell. A memory surfaces as she rubs her fingers over the grooves. "Would have liked to run tests on the seashells."
"Mordin, I'm sorry."
"I'm not, had to be me....Someone else might have gotten it wrong."
A tear runs down Kaycee's cheek at the thought. "I miss you Mordin. You were always crazy, but I never knew a gentler soul. Wish you could have had your retirement. The kids would have loved you."
More tears begin to fall."I'm so sorry Mordin. I should have found another way."
"Daddy? Are you alright?"
Kaycee quickly brushes the tears away before turning to face her daughter. "I'm fine Sweetie, just remembering an old fr

Omega Chronicles -3- Open Wounds
Shepard woke up with a jerk and it took her brain a couple of seconds to remember where she was and what she was doing there. As her eyes darted around the small, dark room she spotted the familiar shape of Aria sitting on the couch, a padd in her hands, a concentrated look on her face. The human imagined that Aria kept a change of clothes in here, since she was perfectly dressed in a fresh outfit.
Shepard got up from the bed and walked over to her, picking up her uniform along the way and getting dressed herself, before sitting down next to the Asari. "Interesting read?"
"Very. Apparently some smugglers have decided to go behind my back for their business and will be wiped out within the next few hours because of that. Since I a

After looking carefully at the image in front of her eyes, Shepard shook her head. "It looks like there's already a crater on this side of the moon, Relan. Take us to the other side and let's see if we can find an unspoiled portion of the surface. I want to have a very precise idea of the power of the cannon."
The Lystheni quickly keyed in a few commands. "Yes, Commander, we will be in range in just under a minute."
Shepard had invited the young Quarian to join them on the bridge to witness the first shot of the most powerful Turian weapon that could be mounted on a ship. Tali was shifting her weight from one foot to the other incessantly, she looked really ex

She walked alone through the tall, wrought-iron gates as she had so many times before and into the lush, green reserve that bore the name Shepard's Park. The trees had grown so tall since the first time she came here. Back then they were just hastily planted saplings that only came up to her waist. Now they towered over her and shaded the people in the park from the hot afternoon sun. A light breeze stirred from the east and blew pleasantly in and around the trees rustling the leaves and branches. Liara couldn't help but smile as the cool breeze caressed her skin as she strolled towards the center of the sprawling park to the only building, the only construct on the three hundred acre lot.
Here and there people enjoyed the beautiful weather playing games, walking among the trees or having picnics as chirping birds looked down from the branches and dogs frolicked in the grass. Many took notice of her, bein
Apocalypse Update: AustraliaThe Reapers have come. They obviously weren't prepared as the kangaroos are beating up brutes. Drop bears are ambushing unwary husks. The bunyips are dragging cannibals underwater. The snakes and spiders have teamed up and attacked the banshees as have the crocodiles, jellyfish and sharks. I haven't seen a single marauder escape their clutches. It's bushfire season on one side of the continent and flooding on the other. This is the worst Reaper invasion ever.Apocalypse Update: Australia1 year ago in Settings More Like This

Dark short hair
Blue eyes with specs of red
Not overly muscley but not a gram of fat on him
Always wears a hat pulled down almost over his eyes
Scars on his face from biotic experiment gone wrong which has left him with powerful yet often erratic powers
Elliot is the reason he and his twin sister Jessica are being transferred to Citadel High as he pulled a knife on the principal of his old school and was expelled.
Rumours abound that Elliot is psychotic but it is revealed that the Principal of the previous school was actually abusive to children and Elliot was simply doing what he thought was the right thing to get him to stop.
Though Elliot does essentially want what's best for everyone and genuinely cares for the health of his friends and family, his personality can be seen at times to be cruel and quite mean.
He keeps his hat on as he doesn't like people to see his scars nor the red flecks of colour in hi

Jessica volunteers to be transferred to Citadel High to keep an eye on her twin brother Elliot who was expelled from their previous school for pulling a knife on the corrupt principal.
Jessica is honest and caring and also very intelligent. She stands up to bullies that she sees picking on the smaller kids and has the respect of her friends and peers.
She is not past headbutting a krogan to gain that respect which she did the first day at school when she saw Wrex picking on Mordin. This gained Wrex's respect and Mordin's admiration of her.
She is the central point of her social circle as people are natually attracted to her strength and character. Jessica looks past what some would see as flaws in people to see the best in them and she does her best to help them show it.

Admiral Ashley Williams stands in the middle of the war room, Alliance personnel running about. She clears her throat, "I'd like your attention everyone."
Every face turns to her, causing her to pause for a second. Damn, I am still not use to giving orders. "We have a situation unfolding ladies and gentlemen. A terrorist group is targeting Commander Kaycee Shepard and her family. That would normally not be a huge problem, except they aren't just targeting the Shepards. They are ----"

What the Hell were we thinking going after the Reapers? What made us think we would be able to stop them when countless civilizations before ours fell?
Before London, I found myself thinking this more and more. But then I also started thinking of everything we've accomplished. When Saren turned his back on the Council, they just couldn't see it. They just couldn't believe that one of their own would turn against them. I'd call it human nature but

Claire Shepard's eyes widen as a green and black hand comes flying towards her face. Her blue eyes shut in surprise, waiting for the impact. A moment passes before she realizes that nothing's happened. She opens one eye hesitantly, Kolyat Krios's open palm rests no more than five inches from her face. She glances past his hand, looking intently at his face. The scaled face shows very little emotion, but those large, black eyes seem to stare into her very soul. "Not bad commander. Your reactions are a little slow though. But Doctor Chakwas told me that after what you've been through, it's to be expected."
Claire gets to her feet, wiping the beads of sweat from her forehead. The pair of them are on a grey, martial arts mat. Kolyat is clad in black cloth leggings, with no shirt. Claire wears a red and black tank-top with sweatpants. Kolyat stands with his back to her, hands clasped in front of him. Claire dusts off her hands and takes her positio

Rinyn looks up at her mother with a puzzled expression. "What's a justicar?"
"They're an old order of asari warriors. They are proud, noble, and selfless. Actually, they're like the heroes in the stories your dad reads to you."
Rinyn's eyes widen in wonder, her gaze moving back to the justicar. "Wow....she's like a superhero."
Liara chuckles to herself. "Not exactly sweetie. She's a hero to be sure, but she'd tell you that she's not any different than you or I."

Aria's comm terminal flashes to life in the early hours of the morning. *beep beep beep* Aria groans as she tosses the covers off and tumbles, ungracefully out of bed. She strolls across the vast quarters (still only clad in a pair of black panties) and grabs a shirt off the back of the couch, pulling it on quickly before answering the terminal. Her Batarian enforcer, Bray, appears on the console. Aria's tone drips with venom, "This better be good Bray."
"Uh...right. We have an issue down here on the floor of the club."
Aria's hand goes to her temple, the beginnings of a migraine starting to creep into her head. Her voice causes Bray to wince visibly, "Unless the club's going up in flames, I really don't care. Handle it. It's what I pay you for, isn't it?"

Name: Liara T'Soni
Long straight head tentacles. Doesn't do anything to style them as prefers normal look
Wears proper school uniform and reading glasses that fold up under tentacles unlike normal glasses
Liara is a very sweet and kind girl yet gets a fair amount of teasing and even hatred due to her Father (yes I said Father) Matriarch Aethyta banning her from all sports and physical school activities. As Matriarch Aethyta is in a place of political power she has told Principal Anderson that Liara is to be protected from harm at all costs.
Some of the other school kids are angry and resentful of this as it makes Liara exempt from ever suffering any injury. They refer to her as "Princess Liara" as a vindictive term.
She is a straight A student and is only ever beaten for grades in Art by Jack (who fails most everything else). Liara spends much of her lunch breaks studying with Tali, Mordin and Kaidan instead o

Commander Armando Bailey sits with his fingers steepled in front of him, looking at the young Quarian girl in front of him. Her suit covers only her torso and legs, leaving her arms uncovered. Glittering green lines trace patterns down her slender arms. Her mask, a light blue, doesn't hide the apprehensive expression on her face, her glowing blue eyes awash with uncertainty and fear.
"You do know that you're in some serious trouble here, young lady?"
Her eyes lock on his for a moment before nodding. Bailey continues, keeping his voice calm and quiet, "Care to explain why you were caught hacking into the Sirta Foundation's mainframe?"
She mumbles something that Bailey can't make out. "I'm sorry, but you're gonna have to speak up. I'm getting up there in years. My hearing's not what it once was."
She looks at him quizzically as he gives her a small smile. "You're on your Pilgrimage, aren't you?"
