Personal effects destroyed with Normandy aside from personal foot locker that came to a Officer Vakarian, final will and testaments recovered from data network, all retrievable credits administered to charities for orphans and funds for human colony defenses.


Psychological Bio:  Dangerously persuasive. Has been known to lose temper and unleash unexpected biotic punch. Potentially deadly to aggravate. Assault, whether verbal or physical, highly discouraged. Attempts to bribe or otherwise manipulate not recommended, as subject has been known to react violently. Despite warnings, Commander is not unstable. Highly protective of civilians and firm believer in justice and punishment for crimes. Prefers to apprehend rather than kill. Driven by a combination of emotional response and moral code. Has never been observed to "look the other way" for money or favors.

Other Psychological Notes:  Previously diagnosed with minor post-traumatic stress disorder following slaughter of fellow soldiers and civilians on Elysium. Subject has since, fully recovered. Likely suffers from undiagnosed sleep disorder resulting in frequent lack of sleep and regular self-administration of stimulation doses. Self-medication supervised by Alliance medical personnel a one Dr. Chakwas.


Last Confirmed Sighting:  Seen blown into deep space with damaged suit by pilot Jeff Moreau during destruction of Normandy SR-1

Last Unconfirmed Sighting:  Seen on Omega by various witnesses, most unreliable, no video or photo evidence.

Just some fun :D I will be attempting to do these for every character but I thought I would start with the number one woman herself :D

Don't worry, they won't interfere with my fanfic... I promise! They are just a little something to get my Mass Effect fanfic ball rolling when it's time.

Hope you enjoy learning a little about my Shepard, I'm certainly in love with her :love: :D
