Dragon effect: EDI/Legion by AndrewRyanArt Dragon effect: EDI/Legion by AndrewRyanArt
So it seemed pretty obvious to draw reference from the golems in dragon age for EDI and Legion’s look, though actual DA golems are pretty huge and bulky (and I think created from living dwarven volunteers). I’m not really sure of the exact nature of how they’re created but Mass Effect characters in DA is already enough of a stretch in regards to the lore. I’m thinking after acquiring Mordin and Tali in the Deep Roads Shepard would then come across a long lost community of golems and EDI would sort of be their leader/queen and Legion would act as her personal bodyguard. They’d be wary of Shepard at first due to their prior enslavement at the hands of their dwarven creators.

EDI: Like Tali she’d be an expert on darkspawn given her long years spent in the deep roads and her combat abilites would be similar to Shale’s in DA with an arsenal of different offensive crystal abilities. Also if you thought Joker had it rough before now he’s screwed ;)

Legion: Fiercely loyal to EDI and somewhat overprotective, Legion wields a specially built in crossbow that he arms with crystals pried from his body.

characters left: Javik, James, Kasumi, Zaeed, and maybe Joker. Then I’m finally finished!

"I do not understand. Even if he took an arrow to the knee, he's still fighting. How can it be possible, Legion?"

That is god damn amazing, how are you not a character designer? (apart from your sketches and artwork on here)

They are synthetics, so they must be golems. Good point xD

Curius about their voices. Normal or hollow echoes?
But man, they make the DA golems look like lumbering boulders!

Decided to make some banter for some of the characters. Hope you like it.

EDI: It has come to my attention, Legion, that you are acting hostile to some of the crew members.
LEGION: We do not trust them, Mistress. The humans have a history of enslaving of us. If given the chance, they will surely do it again.
EDI: That may be, but they are are allies now, and we must work together to stop the threat of the darkspawn.
LEGION: We do not need their help, Mistress. The golems have survived centuries facing the darkspawn on our own. We do not need...
EDI: Legion.
LEGION: ...Yes. Forgive us, our Queen. We spoke out of turn.

EDI: It seems that you have eventually accepted the humans as allies, Legion.
LEGION: We simply see the benefits of using their technology to combat the darkspawn. We still do not trust them.
EDI: *chuckles* Of course.
LEGION: Forgive us for saying so, but your tone of voice suggests you do not believe us, Mistress.
EDI: No, I believe you. I apologize if I have offended.
LEGION: No, it is... Thank you, Mistress.

LEGION: We have observed that the 'Joker' has been spending a lot of time with our Queen.
LEGION: Is he bothering you, Mistress? We can eradicate him for you, if you wish.
EDI: Please do not. I enjoy spending time with him.
LEGION: The mistress enjoys the Joker?
EDI: Yes. He is an odd, yet charming man.
LEGION: We do not understand. He is a human.
EDI: Suffice to say, I like being around him. Whether he is a human or not.
LEGION: We still do not understand.
EDI: Maybe you will someday, Legion.
LEGION: With respect, we doubt that highly, Mistress.

All of the Dragon Effect / Mass Age stuff has been superb but, for me, this is the best.

I'm in awe of your artistic abilities, sir!

I love Golems and love these two and this is just so beautifully rendered.
ironsides11 Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2013
I like the idea of a lost colony of rogue golems. Maybe since they're magic, they need lyrium to survive and so they have to fight darkspawn and dwarves to ensure a steady supply. Otherwise they could just hide themselves in a small cave and talk for a few millennia :P
I think this is my favorite ME to DA crossover :)

Shouldn't EDI some kind of... human form Normandy?

Perhaps as an experiment during the days of the golems invention it was suggested to try and have a golem inhabited by a spirit from the fade. Edi would probably be a wisdom spirit, while legion would be a spirit of loyalty, explaining his devotion to EDIs protection.

I like more EDI as golem then her real looks.

Of course, they had to be golems ^^. I like how you give them backstories and I'm very fond of your entire Dragon Effect series! Nuff said really =P I could go on and on about the awesomness of this if you like? ^^

What about Aria as Isabela? They are both "Pirate Queens" after all.
