[[WMG: The Reapers are an evolution of the [[RevelationSpace Inhibitors]] in an alternate reality where faster-than-light travel is possible]]
The [[RevelationSpace Inhibitors]] are like the Reapers - they are artificial, drop by every once in a while to wipe out all intelligent life, then travel back into deep space. They have the same origin - but the Reapers are pathological liars and the [[spoiler: Catalyst]] lied as well - they were made billions of years ago to help reduce the destruction (star systems being thrown into inter-galactic space) from the Milky Way - Andromeda collision a few billion years in the future. The Inhibitors originally were more gentle with intelligent species by just keeping them in their home system, but they just started bombing species into extinction when too many started popping up. The Reapers were the same way, though since they have FTL travel capabilities, they don't need to lay traps around the galaxy to trigger them, instead just popping up ever 50,000 years to curb-stomp the species into extinction since they don't want to bother blockading them into their home systems. However, the Reapers and Inhibitors started to diverge due to the lack of FTL in one universe and the presence of FTL in the other: Reaper [[spoiler:reproduction is like it is because of the FTL - they can just zip around collecting organic life across solar systems]], whereas the Inhibitors have to reproduce asexually since they don't have the luxury of FTL to [[spoiler: gather organics for reproduction]]. Additionally, the Reapers are sentient, whereas the Inhibitors are not self-aware most of the time - centuries of travel time, drifting between solar systems, would cause them to go insane.

*This proper believes that if not the Reapers themselves, a Reaper War. Consider this: Klendagon has a huge scar on its surface from a glancing blow from a mass accelerator round of unimaginable power, which we find out later actually clocked a Reaper. This particular scar bears an exact resemblance to the Valles Marineris on Mars (though bigger). While the shot that scarred Klendagon was fired 37 million years ago, that doesn't mean that another spacefaring race fighting Reapers in our solar system about 65 million years ago didn't have a similar cannon. As we all know, [[MemeticBadass Sir Isaac Newton is the deadliest sonovabitch in space]], and if a shot missed its intended target and glanced Mars with Earth perfectly lined up in the distance, it's not unfeasible that the "asteroid" that knocked out the dinosaurs was actually something much more sophisticated.

If you have the iOS Datapad app, you'll get a message from Tali [[spoiler: while she's drunk]] in the third game, filled with typos that line up with a QWERTY keyboard. If she was typing in Quarian, the translator would have rendered it into MyHovercraftIsFullOfEels-type gibberish, not just badly-spelled English. It also provides an in-game explanation why [[VocalEvolution Tali's accent became more pronounced between games]]; before, she had to rely on translators, which rendered her speech with a more generic tone, but now she can speak English with her own voice, which lets her accent carry over more. It also makes sense as part of her line of work; the universal translator probably doesn't cover programming languages, so Tali would probably need to learn a little bit of English in order to write programs for human computers, same as how non-English programmers have to learn some English in order for C++ or Java to make sense.

* The name actually goes along with that. A harbinger is, literally, "one that presages or foreshadows what is to come." Harbinger's not the leader, he's a herald. He's more ComicBook/SilverSurfer than {{Galactus}}.
