Selene Shepard

Apparently the remaster of the original Mass Effect trilogy is soon upon us. So I want to publish some ‘source data’ for my Commander, Selene C. Shepard just to immortalize her a bit.

Name: Selene Shepard
Biography: ruthless spacer
Class: vanguard
Alignment: neutral, slightly more paragon than renegade

Her canon: (Important things about her biography)
  • Kaidan and Wrex die on Virmire
    • Wrex’s stubbornness and death lead to a general distrust for Krogans
  • Rachni Queen is saved
  • Balak is turned to the Alliance
  • One teammate is lost in the suicide mission (probably Jacob; Jack in my first playthrough)
    • For some sense of loss like in ME1
  • Collector base is destroyed
  • Genophage is sabotaged, Mordin is saved
  • Red or blue ending, never green or ‘do nothing’
Things that should be promoted to canon but they contradict some of my playthoughs:
  • Udina named councillor
    • To save Anderson from the job he doesn’t want and, frankly, Udina is not that asshole he seems on the first playthrough (except ME3)
  • Jacob dies
  • Quarians are saved, Geth are destroyed
  • Red ending with survival

Alternative of version 2 was created for the last replay of ME3 to show some changes due to civilian life.

Athena is a patron goddess of IT
  • A patron goddess of knowledge
  • A weaver. Looms were first programmable devices
  • She turned Arachna into a spider, Arachna then built the World Wide Web
  • A militant and a virgin, she has to be the patron of comment sections
  • She invented ships. Shippers, rejoice!
  • A patron of agriculture. What about your Facebook farms?
  • A daughter of Zeus, and PCs work from electricity. Is it a coincidence?
  • She invented the Trojan Horse
If your PC acts strangely, make a sacrifice to Athena

New blog ready

Almost a year ago I scrapped my WordPress and started moving my blog to Pelican, and now it’s finally ready. Blog has been transferred and a new template has been developed, Tumblr inpired, UIkit powered, hand crafted, with dark mode using prefers-color-scheme: dark. Right for the next Christmas.
