Space zombies.
Inspired from ancient asari mural style.

This one was taking FOREVER to make. *facepalm sigh*


I heard there's a tendency for asari to make the central character's appearance gradually looking like one of them. At least for the time being, the "Battle-maiden" still maintain some human features, but obvious alterations such as the weapon and armors were made to cope with asari culture. So please don't ask why she's dressed in ancient asari robe and Justicar armors, like I certainly don't think Athame was half naked when she taught the asaris how to farm 50000 years ago, either...

Speaking of Athame, her actual gender is something worth ponder upon. As common paternal terms in human culture are rare nor possess literal meanings in asari culture, there could be a possibility that it was a male Prothean scientist who went to Thessia, and he carried an "athame" which was a kind of blade, perhaps similar to Javik's blade he used to slit his indoctrinated crews' throat..., anyway, it's all speculations, nothing more...

--------------

We should consider putting Garrus (or anybody who romanced with Shepard regardless of gender) into stasis so then he/she could wake up 50000 years later and totally troll the future asaris about how he/she was "joined" with the Battle-maiden (regardless of actual gender)....

Considering what Reaper Synthesis entails....I'd rather hear it for the death of the Reapers.

Except that ending means the genocide of the Geth too. So no.

Well, compared to essentially turning everyone into Reapers, to hell with what they have to say on the matter...

Huh. This is actually a catch-22.

Either the Reapers, essentially, WIN...or you wipe out a potentially-allied species to get rid of the Reaper meanace forever.

Oy...

Well, the REAPERS idea is to turn a bunch of people into goo and mold them into new reapers and kill the rest.

The Synthesis ending has the geth become true LIVING machine and organic life becoming something new. There was nothing in it that said it was the death of individuality and personality.

"...and organic life becoming something new."

Again, against its will. Whether one wants to or not, here comes Synthesis!

"There was nothing in it that said it was the death of individuality and personality."

Small comfort--It was FORCED upon them. ALL organic life, warped into "something new" because of ONE man/woman's choice. That's just another brand of genocide--it wasn't "the only way to save them" or a necessity...it was a complete erasure of what everyone was, into....."something new".

Because ONE person made that choice for them.

The Reapers saw organic life's extinction as inevitable...and such did happen. Just not how they imagined.

Screw that.

Sorry. But your logic is insane.

Seriously. That's nuts.

Individuality and personality should be a GIGANTIC COMFORT!

Not if you have a massive, terrifying change inflicted on your most basic existence utterly without your consent...and know that you can NEVER go back to your natural (i.e., TRUE) self, because you'd end up alone, miserable, and OBSOLETE as a pitiful little organic amidst a galaxy of synthetics. (Which themselves may be a source of terror for you, depending on your personal experiences. Like seeing Geth kill your friends, or knowing the Reapers devestated your home-world).

Everything you were was just unmade and twisted into "Something new", without any regard for what you thought on the matter, and everone in the galaxy has no choice but to just...accept it.

And if one's personality and individuality can't acclimate to that new existence....well, so much for a "massive comfort".

A = A.

...Wait, what?

I think I mixed something up; when did I say Individuality and personality were BAD? :?
