mass effect 2 accept spectre status

Originally posted by Xautos : If anything the choice to give up such power should be seen as a paragon choice, because your Shepard no longer has the capability to be above the law anymore and can be held responsible for their actions. This tends towards the idea that on some level Shepard wants to be held accountable for their actions if anything bad happens. :P

(also it the bottom right choice...so)

Originally posted by XiL : He's rejecting an organization he worked for. That IS a renegade act on its own. Doesnt matter whether you think its a paragon choice or what is ultimate power blah blah blah. In that moment he told the Council to F**K OFF. He didnt care whether he was doing it for the right reasons. he just wanted to p155 them off. *anyway the fact is it was the renegade option in the Wheel too LOL

Originally posted by Mr. Bufferlow : Hard to say rejecting spectre status in and of itself is a renegade action. You would need to assume that anything negative for the Council was a renegade act. Given the Council pretty much sits on their hands about believing/reacting to the Reaper threat throughout the series, rejecting the bureaucracy could be considered a paragon act as well. (damn pencil pushers). This is likely why they did not want to burden a player either way based on that choice.
Originally posted by Xautos : Actually Shepard is considered legally dead up to that point, therefore Shepard's service to the Alliance and requirements to the SPECTRE status on the council ended back at Alchera. Rejecting what he/she once worked for doesn't count under the actions of treason since they aren't aligned with the Alliance or the council any more.

Mass Effect: Every Single Known Spectre In The Trilogy

The Spectres are an elite group of space-cops who oversee themselves. Some have better moral compasses than others.

Before, and during, the events of Mass Effect , the Special Tactics and Reconnaissance agents, otherwise known as Spectres, act as the judge, jury and executioner for the Citadel Council. A specialised unit dedicated to preserving the stability, and often the status quo, of galactic politics, they operate with little to no accountability, acting in whatever means they feel necessary to complete their missions.

RELATED: Mass Effect Races Ranked By How Dangerous They Are

The Spectres have a long history, and although their actions over their nearly 1,500-year history are well-documented across the Citadel’s Extranet, only a handful are known by name.

10 Beelo Gurji

The first Spectre, Beelo Gurji, was a Salarian just like Mordin Solus above, and former member of the Special Tasks Group. As part of the skilled pseudo-military group, Gurji was accused of flushing out a target using innocent civilians as bait.

Rather than punishing this individual for putting lives at risk, the Citadel Council at the time released him from incarceration instead. Then they offered him the chance to become a glorified, totally unaccountable space-cop by establishing the Spectres in the first place. It's one more reminder that, in the Mass Effect universe,  the true enemy is bureaucracy .

9 Lonar Maerun

Little is known about this member of the Spectre ranks. While his species remains unknown to us, he was a Spectre prior to Shepard’s induction, so he isn’t human.

His most publicised action (reported through the human-biased Cerberus Daily News) was an alleged assassination attempt on Lira Speight, the commander of the Sonax Industries’ private military. Tracking his target to the wasteland planet of Garvug, he reportedly failed in his task. However, Speight’s unrelated death on Omega months later did satisfy his hunt.

8 Nihlus Kryik

A legend amongst the Spectres, Nihlus came from a distinguished Turian military background. But he gained a reputation for disobedience in order to do what he believed was right. Then-Spectre Saren Arterius took an interest in the soldier, taking him under his wing and bringing him into the ranks of the Spectres.

RELATED:  Mass Effect: Everything You Didn’t Know About Turians

As one of the most competent Spectre agents with a reputation for completing the most dangerous of missions, Nihilus is personally sent to escort the crew of the Normandy SR-1. The mission: to recover the Prothean beacon on Eden Prime and to evaluate his most recent Spectre nominee -- Commander Shepard. Unfortunately, his encounter with an indoctrinated Saren on the docks of Eden Prime didn’t turn out well for him.

7 Saren Arterius

The longest-serving Turian Spectre as of Mass Effect 1, Saren was well-known for his ruthlessness, carrying on the legacy of the first Spectre, Beelo Gurji, in doing whatever it took to get the job done. His deep-seated hatred of Humanity stemmed from having to kill his Reaper-indoctrinated brother during the First Contact War, placing the blame for his brother’s change on Humanity.

Encountering Sovereign, he formed the indoctrinated belief that the best way to survive the Reapers was to serve them. His actions twisted kindness into cruelty - reviving the Rachni and curing the Genophage only in an effort to create an army. The actions of Commander Shepard, their squadmates, and the Normandy crew led to his eventual downfall.

6 Commander Shepard

As the first Human Spectre, Commander Shepard had some incredibly high expectations to meet. The previous candidate, David Anderson, failed his evaluation due to the interference of Saren Arterius. As a result, the Council were loath to induct a human into the ranks.

Of the many events throughout Shepard's lives , their role as a Spectre is one that the player has an active role in throughout the course of the Mass Effect franchise. Shepard is one of the few Spectres to be removed from the ranks only to be reinstated if the player pursues reinstatement. Of course, removing Spectre made sense after Shepard's two-year vacation from life.

5 Tela Vasir

An incredibly powerful Asari biotic, Tela Vasir spent much of her time working against Cerberus. Having thwarted slave-trading rings and high-profile theft, she ended up stopping then-Cerberus operative Maya Brooks from infiltrating the Spectre office. This led to her discovering the group’s particular interest in Shepard.

She also moonlighted as an operative for  the Shadow Broker , performing the odd dirty job in exchange for information. At the Broker’s request, she repeatedly attempted to kill Liara T’Soni, who was on the Broker’s tail at the time. These attempts only succeeded in gaining the attention of Commander Shepard and their team, who eventually finish her off.

4 Jondum Bau

Originally serving within the ranks of the Salarian Special Tasks Group, Jondum Bau was one of the many Spectres who took the widely-dismissed threat of the “Reapers” seriously. Bau receives information about the possibility that one or more of the Hanar diplomats could be indoctrinated.

RELATED: Mass Effect Has Better Characters Than Dragon Age, But It Doesn't Use Them Half As Well

After Shepard rescues Primarch Victus from the battlefields of Palaven’s moons, Bau reaches out to them, requesting help in his investigation in exchange for Spectre support for the Reaper war. With the help of an infiltrated Kasumi Goto, the three are able to avoid any allied casualties while stopping the indoctrinated Hanar, Zymandis, from uploading a virus that would destroy the Hanar homeworld’s defences.

3 Kaidan Alenko (Choice Dependent)

Growing up isolated as a Human biotic, Kaidan learned the dangerous nature of his power since he accidentally killed one of his Biotics teachers after the teacher threatened both himself and a friend. This led to the cover-up of the biotic training conducted by the Alliance, and Kaidan’s refusal of further biotic implants.

Working his way up the Alliance military ranks, Kaidan finds himself stationed aboard the Normandy SR-1. Should he survive the events on Virmire, he finds himself hunting down the collectors and discovering Shepard’s alliance with Cerberus. Surviving an attack on Mars, Councilman Udina offers Spectre status to Kaidan which he takes in the final weeks of the Reaper war.

2 Ashley Williams ( Choice Dependent )

A career soldier, Ashley joined the navy immediately after high school. Noted by her superiors for her reliable instincts and combat aggression, she found herself promoted to squad leader quickly. But she was denied promotion after that. As the sole survivor of her squad after the Eden Prime attack, she is transferred to the Normandy SR-1 where, though a valuable teammate in battle, she proves prejudiced against the aliens aboard the ship.

If Ashley manages to make it through Virmire, rather than ever visibly confronting her problematic views , she carries on working with the Systems Alliance, hunting down the perpetrators of the Alliance colony disappearances. After reuniting with Shepard after the Reapers attack Earth, she is injured by Eva Cor é and is offered Spectre status by Donnell Udina as she recovers.

1 Avitus Rix

Mass Effect: Andromeda is a very different game  and set in an entirely different galaxy. However, Spectres still find their way there as part of the Andromeda Initiative. Much like Nihlus Kryik, Avitus Rix was recruited into the ranks of the Spectres by Saren Arterius, spending fifteen years among their ranks. After the revelation of Saren’s indoctrination and betrayal of the Council, Rix retired from the force only to be recruited by Macen Barro to act as the second-in-command of the Turian wing of the Andromeda Initiative.

The Ark-ship Natanus goes missing, but Avitus escapes, losing much of his memory in the crash on the planet Havarl. He becomes the de facto leader of the Turians across the planet and, when it is discovered that Barro had died, he fulfils her request to become the new Turian Pathfinder.

Blasto is a fictional character featured in several films throughout the 2180s and beyond. He is known as the Milky Way 's first hanar Spectre . Numerous stories have been devoted to recounting his adventures.

Mass Effect: Foundation [ ]

In 2184 prior to his rise in prominence, images of Blasto from the production Requiem for a Reaper! is used to distract Cerberus forces from Rasa 's attempt to steal Shepard's clone .

Mass Effect 2 [ ]

Blasto is introduced in the film Blasto the Jellyfish Stings , a hanar exploitation film advertised on Illium in 2185. Described as having "a lover in every port and a gun in every tentacle" Blasto roams the galaxy meting his violent brand of justice. Despite commercial success, the film has been the subject of criticism from anti-defamation groups who object to the use of the term "jellyfish", which many hanar view as an ethnic slur.

A sequel film, titled Blasto Saves Christmas , is also briefly mentioned in a galactic box office report .

Mass Effect 3 [ ]

An advert for Blasto 6: Partners in Crime with select dialogue extracts from the movie

In 2186 Blasto returns in Blasto 6: Partners in Crime , a film advertised in the Citadel 's Presidium Commons and involving the hanar's investigation of the vorcha ambassador with his new elcor partner, Bubin.

The movie is marketed as a family film, complete with special combo toy packs for the kids. It proves to be wildly successful, breaking opening-week box-office records during the Reaper war. Its producer, Zhanmari Erinaceus, pledges part of the movie's proceeds to the Citadel's military defense fund.

Blasto 6: Partners in Crime [ ]

Blasto gets into a spat with his stressed-out volus Chief for failing to bring back some vorcha suspects alive for questioning and blowing up half a level of the Zakera Ward in the process. The chief stresses that ever since eezo was found in the vorcha homeworld the Council has been trying to make nice, with the race getting "diplomatic immunity". Having had to talk his superiors down from suspending Blasto and suffering a pulmonary ulcer from dealing with the Spectre's mess, the Chief assigns Blasto a partner from C-Sec , Bubin, warning that the hanar will have to work with the elcor in a joint operation under penalty of Spectre status revocation.

Two-armed organics are left in the dust (or reduced to them) with Blasto's superior weapons handling

Bubin, a gruff veteran just three solar days from retirement, initially butts heads with Blasto, with both trying to push their work philosophies over the other: Bubin, with his by-the-book approach, and Blasto, with his decidedly loose cannon antics. The vorcha ambassador's shuttle whizzes past them, and the duo hop on to Bubin's mate's car intending to follow, with the elcor complaining it has just been paid and Blasto replying that hopefully it's insured.

Blasto and his gruff partner Bubin manage to corner the vorcha, interrogating him. Blasto manhandles the vorcha despite his cries of "diplomatic immunity". Bubin reacts badassfully, stating concern for Blasto's violent actions, but the hanar reasons the vorcha will be fine owing to his regenerative properties. Blasto threatens the vorcha with incendiary ammunition , stating he has forgotten whether his pistol has it equipped or not, when the latter refuses to talk. Bubin badassfully chimes in that the vorcha better talk because the elcor can't hold the Spectre back. The vorcha caves in, yelling something about "guarding boss at consort". Blasto knocks the vorcha out, and Bubin remarks he's out of control. Blasto retorts that Bubin may wish to check his blood pressure levels as high blood is unhealthy for species like his. Moving on, Bubin replies that he knows someone at the Consort 's office. Blasto gets in one final jab; suspicions about his elcor partner's "deviant mating fetishes," when Bubin decides he's had enough and charges Blasto with paying for Bubin's mate's apparently-damaged car.

An attractive elcor named Honey coquettishly welcomes the duo at the Consort's suites, and Blasto is immediately smitten with her. Bubin takes offense at that, badassfully informing the Spectre that Honey is his sister. The attraction is mutual as Honey asks her brother for the handsome jellyfish's name, and Blasto replies instead, claiming he's training Bubin in "proper legal procedure." Bubin seriously reiterates his objection at his partner and his sister's mutual attraction, and with that they enter the suites.

Blasto the Ultra Spectre Elite 7000 Deluxe

Blasto confronts the vorcha in the consort's suites, claiming to mistake him for "krogan defecation." The vorcha threatens to relieve the hanar of his badge, but Bubin badassfully interjects that the badge is the only thing keeping Blasto from killing the vorcha where he stands. The vorcha threatens that he'll be sorry, but Blasto is unfazed, trashtalking the vorcha in return. Later, Bubin asks his partner about what was actually accomplished in the faceoff, and Blasto replies there are two: one, that the vorcha knows it is being followed, and two, that Bubin still has a "supportive endoskeleton."

Bubin catches Blasto sleeping with his sister, and this proves to be one time too many, badassfully challenging the Spectre to a fight outside. Honey coquettishly pleads with her brother not to hurt Blasto, and Blasto promises not to hurt her brother instead. The C-Sec veteran and the hanar Spectre have a little heart-to-heart, and while Bubin concedes Blasto is one of the best cops he's worked with, aside from the Spectre's relationship with his sister he can't work with a partner who doesn't respect him. Blasto states that he does respect his partner, but he thinks the elcor cares more about protocol than stopping the vorcha. They are about to debate their differing philosophies again when the vorcha villains show up, packing guns.

Bubin is apparently injured in the firefight, and while feeling his life ebbing away tries to persuade Blasto to get the vorcha "by the book." Blasto doesn't accept this, stating his elcor partner is too aesthetically displeasing to die. Bubin continues to plead with his partner to the point where his translator gives up and just says "translator error: obstruction in airway." Blasto wails a big no at this, and sets off with vengeance in his heart.

Just another Tuesday saving the galaxy, Blasto-style

Meanwhile, it's revealed that Honey is under the employ of the vorcha mastermind, but she coquettishly argues that they didn't say anything about attacking Bubin. The vorcha, about to pay her for her services, changes his mind into having her killed instead. Blasto breaks into a window, having deduced that Honey was helping the villains all along and had followed her into the vorcha's lair. The vorcha invokes the "diplomatic immunity" defense, and Blasto, having accepted the promise to do things "by the book," concedes that the vorcha may only be killed in self-defense. The vorcha brings out a gun, however. Blasto notes that the villain is standing on flammable material, leaving him with no choice but to "enkindle this", and blows the vorcha up.

Honey coquettishly asks Blasto what he's going to do with her in light of her apparent duplicity, but the Spectre decides on "nothing": the villains kidnapped her to get to him, and that's what he saw. He adds that Bubin is still alive, in need of blood from a family member to survive, though indicted criminals cannot make tissue donations. Honey is surprised by the information and is grateful for Blasto breaking the rules for her. Blasto rhetorically remarks to his polyp that he's never been concerned with the rules.

Blasto converses with a revived Bubin, reminding his partner that he doesn't get to sleep on the job as his retirement isn't for another two days. Blasto's Chief joins in, delivering news about the vorcha embassy burning down, and further stressed out by the fact the turian councilor is "up [his] cloaca" over the event. Luckily, Honey can testify that the Spectre killed the vorcha in self-defense, and Chief just piles a ton of paperwork on the Spectre. Blasto shifts it to Bubin instead, citing his partner is restricted to desk duty for health reasons. Bubin nearly makes his objection clear with an expletive cut short.

Mass Effect 3: Citadel [ ]

PROTHEAN NO LIKE YOU!

After the Normandy's hijacking , Javik informs Commander Shepard that he has been invited to star in a vid, which turns out to be Blasto 7: Blasto Goes to War! . The salarian director introduces the cast, including the vorcha, salarian and volus Council members, and Blasto. Upon realization of Shepard and Javik's involvement, the actor playing Blasto insists that he does not share top billing, but is convinced by the director and Javik otherwise.

In the film the Council gives Blasto, Shepard and Javik the mission of stopping the Reapers . It soon becomes apparent that in the vids, Blasto is considered the hero of the Citadel and Shepard can take issue with that portrayal or play along. Javik is a bit more disruptive, even going so far as to threaten the salarian Councillor and Blasto. The director soon cuts to a new scene, where Sovereign 's half-brother Sluggard attacks, seeking revenge. The vorcha Councillor is revealed to be indoctrinated and threatens the heroes. While Shepard and Blasto can argue who gets to shoot, Javik decides that enough is enough and strikes the vorcha actor with a biotic attack, knocking him off his feet. As Javik and Shepard leave disappointed, the director is overheard calling for a new vorcha actor so they can start work on Blasto 8: Blasto Cures the Genophage ! .

Blasto: Eternity is Forever [ ]

Blasto in action

After three Spectres pursuing the mad krogan scientist Kronus turn up dead, Blasto is tasked with picking up the trail. Partnered with the asari actress and Spectre Cerulean Star , Blasto travels to Virmire , where Kronus has built his hideout. There, Blasto and Cerulean Star learn that Kronus has built a machine that can freeze time and plans to take over the galaxy.

Blasto confronts Kronus, but the krogan uses his device to freeze Blasto in time. Cerulean Star comes to the rescue, however, and forces Kronus to un-freeze Blasto at gunpoint. The krogan then activates the base's self-destruct sequence and makes his getaway, but is knocked over a railing to his death by an explosion. Blasto and Cerulean Star escape the base, and Blasto admits that the asari is a good partner.

Mass Effect Andromeda: Annihilation [ ]

There appears to be an eighth Blasto movie known to passengers of the ark Keelah Si'yah . Sleepwalker member Anax Therion has watched Blasto 8: The Jellyfish Always Stings Twice either before departure from the Milky Way at the start of the Reaper war in 2186 or during one of the maintenance lulls in the intervening centuries, meaning the film has been produced and completed at some point prior to her most recent reawakening 567 years after launch.

Mass Effect: Andromeda [ ]

Blasto is one of the cultural artifacts imported by Milky Way settlers to the Andromeda Galaxy . Cereal boxes labeled "Blast-Ohs" can be seen on Andromeda Initiative settlements around the Heleus Cluster . Pathfinder Ryder 's athletic outfit prominently features the gunslinging jellyfish. Keeping up with current events, people found the time and resources to continue the Blasto film franchise, as evidenced by the existence of the 3D holo Blasto vs. the Scourge .

The Andromeda colonists also produced an alternate 8th film in Blasto 8: The Biotic Awakens . It is somehow used as the display image for OSDs of the turian movie Last of the Legion .

  • Blasto is a reference to a joke made by writer Patrick Weekes on the official Mass Effect forums. When posting in a thread titled 'Your ideal ME2 squad', they included "Blasto the zany multi-pistol-wielding hanar gunslinger with a dark past, a heart of platinum, and the tendency to shout, "Enkindle THIS!" in combat." [2] Blasto quickly became popular among fans, with Weekes noting "I am never going to live that joke down." [3]
  • Blasto was once planned to refer to his elcor partner Bubin as "Bubin-Spectre." [4]
  • Jennifer Hale, the voice of female Shepard, also voiced Honey. [5]
  • In Mass Effect: Infiltrator , some Cerberus troopers at the Barn wonder whether Blasto is real or not.
  • Blasto's name may have its origins in Greek blastos , meaning "sprout", which in turn forms the root for numerous terms for biological processes or organisms. Given that hanar often shorten their names, Blasto may be a reference to blastoids , an extinct type of sea creature, or blastogenesis , a form of jellyfish reproduction.
  • Many of the lines that can be heard from interacting with the Blasto 6 movie poster in Mass Effect 3 parody or reference the "buddy cop" genre, in particular the Dirty Harry series of films starring Clint Eastwood and the Lethal Weapon series starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover.
  • BioWare filmed a faux commercial for the Blast-Ohs cereal. [6]
  • Mass Effect: Andromeda has a Blasto scheme for console controller configurations.
