* {{Cowboy Cop}}s: C-Sec's resident "super-cops" Garrus Vakarian and Adam Jensen. Between the two of them, the Spectres get hacked, thugs get shot in the head, criminal bars are assaulted, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking tail lights get broken]]. Adam generally will try to act as a ByTheBookCop as much as possible, but he's willing to bend and break some rules when things get serious. Garrus on the other hand has fewer compunctions.

-->In games I can always gauge how my opponent thinks... usually by the games they pick. Truth is, that was my first game of kepesh. When T'susza picked it, and revealed her many, many expansion packs I understood that she liked to ''purchase'' power. Her opening moves revealed that she held to the surgical mindset of all Asari commanders. Adam had picked Go, a simple game, a profound game, a game that cares nothing of money.

And said autistics tend to be used for "Holy Prostitution" to support the rest of the order.
