[[folder:The Shadow Broker]]
[[WMG: The Shadow Broker, AKA [[spoiler:Operative Kechlu]]]]

[[caption-width-right:350: Click [[labelnote:here]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Shadow_Broker_9036.jpg[[/labelnote]] to see the Shadow Broker himself.]]

->''"I know your every secret, while you fumble in the dark."''

-->'''Voiced by''': [[spoiler:SteveBlum]]

A powerful figure in the galaxy's black market who specializes in finding secret information and selling it to the highest bidder. In the first game, he/she hired Wrex to assassinate a former agent who betrayed him/her.
----
* AmbiguousGender: Of the very little that's known about the Broker, his/her gender (or, as Barla Von points out, even whether the Broker is a single person or a group of agents operating under a singular title) is not among it. [[spoiler: The Broker is revealed to be male]].
* ArchEnemy: [[spoiler:Liara considers the Broker to be hers after the events of ''Redemption'']].
** The Illusive Man considers also the Broker "[[WorthyOpponent his equal]]" in terms of influence and intelligence gathering, and vice versa.
* ArcVillain: Main antagonist of ''Redemption'', a comic set between Shepard's death and revival.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking:
** In the ''Lair of the Shadow Broker'' DLC, [[spoiler:he's the biggest and second deadliest enemy you face, only [[TheDragon Tela Vasir]] being stronger]].
** Also [[spoiler:AsskickingEqualsAuthority since he took control of the previous Shadow Broker's organization by starting off as a "pet" and then killing him]].
** The codex mentions that [[spoiler: his entire species are like this; they sort themselves into packs, and fight either physically or intellectually to discover the strongest. It also says that the losers generally accept the winner's authority without bearing grudges, and former enemies have no trouble working together once the hierarchy has been established]].
*** This provides a possible alternative reason for [[spoiler:the fact that his personal computers lack any kind of security (beyond the rather significant fact that any intruder would have to get past him); Liara assumes it's because he never anticipated anyone being in a position to use them, but it's possible that the yahg tendency to not undermine those who have proven their superiority caused him to be a GracefulLoser with his resources, and not try to sabotage anyone who was strong enough to beat him. His predecessor tried to sabotage him in case he won, but was [[KilledMidSentence stopped]] before completing it]].
* BadBoss: Treats his "employees" as quite disposable. He allows a [[spoiler: Spectre who works for him to off one of his agents to disguise her role in the killing of a loose end. He even dismisses the Spectre's death as costing him nothing but time]]. He tortures Feron for betraying him and has his agents watch [[VillainousDemotivator to make sure they're properly motivated]]. When you've practically cleaned out his men, he basically shrugs and says [[WeHaveReserves they're easily replaceable]].
* BerserkButton: [[spoiler: Calling him a slave. Or a ''pet.'']]
* BigBadEnsemble: As much of a threat as Harbinger for the second game, though he's only encountered in ''Lair of the Shadow Broker''.
** VillainTeamUp: Briefly with the Collector General in ''Redemption''. [[spoiler:Although not exactly allies, the Shadow Broker tried to give Shepard's body to the Collectors, before Liara stepped in. The Broker himself claims "it was a mutually beneficial partnership", but it's likely Harbinger would've back-stabbed him eventually.]]
* TheChessmaster: The best player in the game, according to Anderson. The Broker somehow manages to sell info to everybody, but ensures that no faction ever gains the upper hand with it, and has been successfully doing so for decades. (Gotta keep those customers somehow.)
* CluelessMystery: [[spoiler: His]] identity.
* EvilSoundsDeep: At first you think the Broker's using a computer to distort their voice/hide their identity. Then you meet [[spoiler:him]], and realize that it really is the Broker's voice, with subtle electronic alteration. [[spoiler:Although it strains credibility for the synthesizer to transform Liara's voice into the same thing after she takes over, it's likely that the computer keeps the inflection and tone and converts the actual voice to a standard. It's also possible that Liara made the computer do that]].
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He started off as the last Shadow Broker's [[spoiler:''pet.'']]
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: [[spoiler:The yahg were]] never even heard of until the DLC, and the[[spoiler: species is completely different from ''any'' that had come before]]. It's justified by [[spoiler:the yahg's homeworld being blacklisted by the Council due to their uncontrollably violent nature]].
* GeniusBruiser: He speaks eleven languages without a translator (no small feat, [[spoiler:considering how his mouth is shaped]]), and has the savvy needed to run his network. [[spoiler:He also happens to be larger than most krogan, and uses TheBerserker style of combat]].
* GoodOldFisticuffs: Once he [[TurnsRed takes enough damage]] he summons a totally bulletproof barrier to hide behind and recuperate. [[spoiler:Shepard responds by seeing if it's fist-proof. It's not.]]
* HannibalLecture: [[spoiler: He attempts one on Liara at the climax of his DLC. [[ShutUpHannibal It didn't go well.]]]]
* HiddenAgendaVillain: Possibly the only antagonist more [[IncrediblyLamePun elusive]] than the Illusive Man.
* IAmAHumanitarian: Implied with one of Feron's lines about the Shadow Broker. [[spoiler:Remember the Yahg are apex-predators on their homeworld, there's only one way in and out of his main room, and you never see anything that indicates it holds food in his quarters.]]
--> Feron: "[[FridgeHorror Not everyone who enters his office comes back out]]."
* KnowledgeBroker: An ''incredibly'' good one, with access to the most privileged information in the universe. Even the Illusive Man, a figure so secretive that most people are unaware he even exists, can keep no secrets from the Shadow Broker, who knows about his private life in such detail that his dossier includes ''which specific suit he is wearing that day''.
* LargeAndInCharge: [[spoiler:The yahg Shadow Broker is even larger than a ''krogan'']].
* LegacyCharacter[=/=]LegacyImmortality[=/=]YouKillItYouBoughtIt:
** He became the Shadow Broker after [[spoiler:''secretly killing the previous one.'' As Liara ends up doing '''the exact same thing''', it's implied that his predecessor wasn't the original Broker either.]]
** [[spoiler: ''"Operative Kechlu"'' was the name of the agent the Shadow Broker sent to find him. After he was dead, the previous Shadow Broker sent a message that essentially said, "Congratulations, ''you'' are now Operative Kechlu".]]
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Seems to be [[spoiler:a given among the yahg.]]
* NGOSuperpower: For good reason; when your organization spans most of the galaxy, has hands in business and political interests in nearly everything in said galaxy, ''and'' specializes in collecting and using information to both support those interests and manipulate governments and corporations, you definitely should have impressive resources. The Broker owns a personal army capable of deploying hundreds of loyal soldiers in ''minutes'' on Illium alone, along with a supremely well-engineered atmospheric airbase-warship, and the enormous amounts of money, hardware, and political influence one would expect from an organization of this scale.
* NoNameGiven: All [[PronounTrouble he's/she's/they're/it's]] known by is "the Shadow Broker."
* OutGambitted: [[spoiler: Despite being a MagnificentBastard, he ends up being OutGambitted by Liara... who ''herself'' was an UnwittingPawn to the Illusive Man]].
* OutsideContextVillain: Even if you've played both games. Even the usual tactics of assuming that loyalty missions play to the strength of the character involved won't help you too much. Expect the unexpected.
* TheReveal: "Lair Of The Shadow Broker" clears up several of the questions surrounding the Broker.
* StrangerBehindTheMask: After so much build up around his identity, the ''Lair of the Shadow Broker'' reveals that [[spoiler:he's a member of a species that had never before been seen or mentioned in the series. At least unique in that while Shepard has no clue on what it is, Liara does, and manages to send it into a VillainousBreakdown based on a paragraph's worth of information on his species]].
* UngratefulBastard: There's a side quest in ''Mass Effect'' in which you can provide the Shadow Broker with a copy of the data Shepard has gathered on Cerberus, after which [[spoiler:his]] agent informs Shepard that the Shadow Broker will be there to help Shepard when s/he needs it. [[spoiler:Ask Liara how well ''that'' went. His archives also reveal that he was going to kill Tali when he was offering her a sanctuary in return for her information about Saren and the geth in the first game, in order to ensure that the information would not end up in the wrong hands. So basically you saved Tali's life twice over when you first met her]].
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler: To both Harbinger and the Illusive Man.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:He completely loses it after Liara figures out his backstory. A message left behind by the previous Shadow Broker points out that this is a FatalFlaw of his; his normally-genius intellect becomes fogged when he gets angry]].
* WalkingSpoiler
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:The Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC reveals that the SB's reason for giving Shepard's body to the Collectors was his attempt to pacify the Reapers and save the galaxy. Of course, his primary reason was to save his own skin and his power]].
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Planned on doing this to Tali, although Fist betrayed him for Saren, leaving Tali unaware of how the Broker was going to betray her, too]].
* YouKillItYouBoughtIt: How he got the job. [[spoiler:And how his successor gets the job too]].

[[caption-width-right:350:Ilium is just Omega with expensive shoes.]]
-> ''"This is REAL biotic power!"''

-->'''Voiced by''': Jessica Anne Bogart

An asari Spectre introduced in "''Lair of the Shadow Broker''" who is handling the cases of the Shadow Broker's attempted assassination of Liara T'Soni. She joins Shepard in his/her effort to track down Liara after she was attacked in her home.
----
* AntiVillain: Type III; she works with the Broker in order to get intelligence necessary for her Spectre duties, and sees doing the Broker's dirty work as an acceptable price to pay.
* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking: She's a Spectre for a reason.
* {{Badass}}: She's a Spectre. It's a job requirement. [[spoiler:She beats ''Shepard'' in a mid-air tussle]].
* ChekhovsGunman: She was mentioned in the CerberusDailyNews in February and July 2010.
* CombatPragmatist: [[spoiler: She indiscriminately bombs civilians, throws her own soldiers at Shepard, and uses human shields to escape. Of course, none of these tactics work]].
* DarkActionGirl: Once her true colors are revealed.
* DeadpanSnarker: Drops a few choice quips while searching Liara's apartment.
* {{Determinator}}: See ImplacableMan below.
* TheDragon: To the Shadow Broker, being his best fighter. A Spectre herself, Vasir justifies it by saying that her working for the Shadow Broker isn't any different from Shepard working with the Illusive Man.
* EvilCounterpart: To Commander Shepard, particularly a Paragon. Dips into NotSoDifferent territory as well.
* FantasticRacism: Towards "Purebloods."
* FlashStep: Does this to get to [[spoiler: her hostage]]. Also [[spoiler:does this almost all the time when you fight her]].
* FoeTossingCharge: Most players were taken by surprise by her special talent. [[spoiler:Vanguards snapped out of it quicker than others and went "Hey! I can do that too!" Cue Charge spam]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:[[http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Cerberus_Daily_News_-_July_2010#07.2F21.2F2010_-_Over_200_Alleged_Slavers_Arrested_on_Nasurn This]] Cerberus Daily News update provides a good dose of it in retrospect -- so where exactly did Vasir get this "good intel," anyway?]]
* GetBackHereBoss: "Catch me if you can!"
* GreyAndGreyMorality: She's a Spectre; it comes with the territory. It's also what gives her [[spoiler:ShutUpKirk and WhatTheHellHero speeches]] more weight.
* {{Hypocrite}}]]: With that said, ''your'' Shepard probably hasn't done anything like casually murder who knows how many innocents to hide the Shadow Broker and taken a civilian hostage in order to escape[[note]] and as a Vanguard, she probably could have just run away[[/note]], so it falls a little flat.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: [[spoiler:In an attempt to kill Liara, she bombs an entire building killing many innocents.]]
* ImplacableMan: Thrown off a ledge, crashed a flying car at great speed, bleeds across a building, takes a metal table to the face and still provides a tough boss fight.
* KickTheDog: Her remark about how her hostage's son will be scarred for life after losing his mother, within earshot of Liara, whose mother was killed in the last game. Liara isn't happy to hear this ("I'm going to ''end'' you, Vasir."). If Shepard is a Colonist[[note]]Parents killed by batarian raiders[[/note]] or Earthborn[[note]]Abandoned as a child[[/note]], it could be intended for them as well.
* LightningBruiser: Thanks to her Charge attack.
* MadeOfIron: Gets hit with a lot of attacks, but almost never shows up with a visible injury. Also probably the toughest boss fight in the entire game, partly due to the fact she charges around quickly and has 2 layers of crazy tough protection.
* MagicKnight: Comes with being a biotic. Her special ability makes her especially stand out from other examples in Mass Effect.
* MindOverMatter: Given that she's a biotic and all.
* TheMole: For the Shadow Broker.
* NotSoDifferent: Picture Renegade female Vanguard Shepard as an asari, working for the Shadow Broker instead of the Illusive Man; ''that's'' Tela Vasir in a nutshell.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Calls Liara a "[[HalfHumanHybrids pureblood]] [[FantasticRacism bitch]]" before making another attempt to kill her. Liara previously claimed that no asari would be cruel enough to call her a pureblood to her face.[[note]]Emphasis on the "to her face" part[[/note]].
* PutDownYourGunAndStepAway:
** She resorts to taking a civilian hostage during the chase sequence. You can drop your thermal clips, [[spoiler:keep her talking her long enough for Liara to hit her with a table, or shoot her through the hostage's shoulder. "You'll live."]]
** [[spoiler: And as Paragon Shepard, you can sit there and list off some of the hard decisions made in the first game, such as sacrificing the Council or thousands of humans, depending on your choice, and ask her if [[GoodIsNotSoft she really thinks you'll disarm for a single person's life.]]]]
* ShutUpKirk: Calls Shepard out on judging her for working with the Shadow Broker while (s)he works for the equally-shady Cerberus. Falls a little flat if Shepard's gone through the Omega relay and quit the organization, though.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: She does seem visibly unnerved when Shepard lists off the reasons why she should back down ''now''. Seemingly more so with the Paragon version;
--> '''Shepard''': [[AndThenWhat Is that it?]]\\
'''Vasir''': [[FlatWhat What?]]
--> '''Shepard''': Vasir, I sacrificed hundreds of human lives to save the ''Destiny Ascension''. I unleashed the rachni on the galaxy. So for your own sake, I hope your escape plan doesn't hinge on me ''hesitating [[BewareTheNiceOnes to shoot a damn hostage]]''.
* WalkingSpoiler: Due to being one of the Shadow Broker's top lieutenants.
%%* WellIntentionedExtremist
%%* WhatTheHellHero: Her last words.

[[caption-width-right:350:They're coming.]]

->''"Only a small fraction of the mass effect relays date back 50,000 years. The majority are far older, indicating they were created by a species predating even the Protheans."''

-->'''Voiced by''': Victoria Gay

An old friend of Admiral Hackett, Dr. Kenson sent a shockwave through the galactic community by publishing research that proved the Mass Relays predated the Prothean civilization. She's later incarcerated by the batarians who claim they stopped her from committing terrorist acts.
----
* AdventurerArchaeologist: Who else would venture into batarian space to discover an artifact.
* BadassBookworm: Not as badass as other examples in the series (she prefers to have her men fight for her), but she's decent in a fight and hardly someone you wanna cross.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: She's been indoctrinated by the artifact.
* CutsceneBoss: She either blows herself up or gets shot via a Renegade action.
* DeepCoverAgent: Described as such by Admiral Hackett.
* DrivenToSuicide: She blows herself up when a Paragon Shepard finally corners her and tries to talk her down. A Renegade action simply shoots her, but she's already pulled the pin.
* TheDragon: To Harbinger, as Saren was to Sovereign.
* EarlyBirdCameo: First appeared in Cerberus Daily News, revealing to the galaxy her findings that the mass relays were not made by Protheans.
* EscortMission: Her rescue from the batarians plays out like this, though she can fight as well.
* GodzillaThreshold: Played with. Her initial plan to stop the Reapers will inevitably kill thousands of innocent people. However, she dropped the plan after becoming indoctrinated, realizing it to be horrible, but for the wrong reasons.
* GuestStarPartyMember: In the Arrival DLC.
* HeroicSacrifice: Once she and her team came to realize the importance of the Alpha Relay, they worked tirelessly to stop the Reapers from getting it. They worked tirelessly against the clock to devise a plan, but the very visions that gave them insight to the Reapers' motives were gradually indoctrinating them. In the end, they bought precious time for the galaxy, but at the cost of their free will and eventually their lives.
* MoralMyopia: When Shepard activates the [[ColonyDrop Project]], Kenson immediately calls out Shepard for what s/he's done. Not because Shepard's actions will kill thousands of innocent people, but because it would kill Kenson's crew and prevent Kenson from seeing the Reapers' arrival. This is, of course, a side-effect of getting indoctrinated.
* TakingYouWithMe: She tries to do this when she blows herself up, but Shepard survives the explosion.
* TragicVillain: Lost her way when the Reaper artifact indoctrinated her.
* TrueFinalBoss: Because the ''Arrival'' DLC is a bridge between the end of the suicide mission and the start of VideoGame/MassEffect3, Kenson is this to VideoGame/MassEffect2.
* VillainBall: Bringing Shepard to her base and explaining what the Project is and how to activate it, continuing on with refusing to kill Shepard after he/she is subdued, and finishing up by announcing to Shepard exactly what she plans to do to scuttle the asteroid and daring him/her to stop her. To be fair, this might be the mind degradation that indoctrination causes.
* VillainousBreakdown: Complete with whining and hitting things because she can't hear the whispers any more.

-->'''Voiced by''': Jesse Gervais

"Project Overlord" is a Cerberus program whose goal is to control the geth by [[BrainUploading uploading a person's mind into a VI]], creating a "virus with a face" that can exploit their religious impulses. David Archer, the project director's brother, volunteered for the procedure - unfortunately, the VI immediately went haywire and is now on a rampage to escape.
----

* CoresAndTurretsBoss: Sics geth holograms on Shepard between exposing its core.
* DigitizedHacker: As a VI, he can interface with any electronic device. It's noted that if he ever escaped his facility, he could cause a "technological apocalypse."

[[folder:The Blue Suns]]
[[WMG: The Blue Suns]]

The Blue Suns are, ostensibly, a corporation of PrivateMilitaryContractors founded by Vido Santiago and Zaeed Massani. In reality, they are a wide spanning criminal empire involved in the trading of slaves and drugs, and are in control of many planets in the Terminus systems.

The Blue Suns are a human dominated organization, however turians and batarians both also make up large parts of the group. Unlike the Eclipse, all races serve in all roles, from grunts to elite troops to commanders.

!!The Blue Suns in general
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Commanders.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Run by these.
* EnemyMine: Aria can help Shepard get their allegiance in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''.
* TheEmpire: In all but name. See NGOSuperpower.
* FacelessGoons: All their mooks wear helmets.
* FaceHeelTurn[=/=]VillainWithGoodPublicity: BackStory revealed throughout the game, particularly from Codex entries and planet summaries, show that the Blue Suns have several BigDamnHeroes moments to their credit, though at least a few were less heroic intention and more circumstances working out that way while they achieved their main goals.
* HighlyConspicuousUniform: Played straight in gameplay, subverted in the Codex. During high-risk jobs, they make a point of removing anything that could affiliate them with the Blue Suns, including tattoos.
* KillItWithFire: Blue Suns Pyros.
* {{Mooks}}: The most commonly battled mooks in the game.
** EliteMooks: Centurions and Legionnaires. Like normal troopers, except with a Vindicator battle rifle or Scimitar shotgun instead of an Avenger series assault rifle, specialized ammo, and shields.
** KingMook: Blue Suns Commanders, soldiers with three thick layers of protection (shields, armor, and health) who wield {{BFG}}s such as Claymore shotguns or Revenant light machine guns as weapons.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Blue stars are very dangerous, as are the Blue Suns.
* NGOSuperpower: The amount of resources they have at their disposal is truly frightening. Among other things, they possess: millions of soldiers, heavy mechs, infantry fighting vehicles, and gunships, several front corporations, a krogan cloning lab (remember, Saren's krogan cloning lab was considered dangerous enough that the Council had to send to send the STG and a Spectre to nuke it), the materials to make city destroying weaponry, and the ''entire planet'' of Zorya, which has over 140 million people.
* PrivateMilitaryContractor: Their preferred means of doing business.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: The turians seem to think so. Excepting Warden Kuril, all the turian Blue Suns troops wield shotguns. [[ShortRangeShotgun It actually puts them at a disadvantage most of the time.]]
* TheJailer: They run a prison ship, the Purgatory.
* VillainTeamUp: They team up with the other big merc groups to defeat Archangel early in the game. They lose.

--> ''"Actually, take your shot. Give me a reason to put you down like the mad dog you are. Again."''

-->'''Voiced By''': Richard Green

The CEO of the Blue Suns and Zaeed's rival. He, along with Zaeed, were the founding members of the Blue Suns. However, years later, Vido betrayed Zaeed, shot him in the face, and left him for dead, leaving Vido the sole controller of the most powerful NGOSuperpower in the Terminus systems. Zaeed still searches for him to this day.
----
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Averted -- when he and Zaeed founded the Blue Suns, Vido ran the business while Zaeed was the field commander.
* BadBoss: In Zaeed's loyalty mission, he threatens his soldiers with death if they retreat.
* BeardOfEvil: Bearded and a complete dick.
* BrainsAndBrawn: With Zaeed.
* BusCrash: [[spoiler:Despite getting away in the Paragon ending, there's a new leader of the Suns in ''3''.]] Cut dialogue from the ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' leaked script indicates that [[spoiler:between ''2'' and ''3'', Zaeed put together his own team of mercs, tracked Vido down to a remote human colony, and was about to execute him when a Reaper attacked. A Harvester then grabs Vido, and knowing what's about to [[BodyHorror happen to him]], he begs Zaeed to kill him right then and there. But Zaeed simply [[BestServedCold turns and leaves him to his fate.]]]] This was all supposed to be in dialogue that Zaeed tells Shepard on the Citadel in ''3.''
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: [[spoiler: Zaeed]] figured this out the hard way.
** You find another example when you raid a Blue Suns encampment in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' and read correspondence between Vido and an archaeologist. The archaeologist had found a valuable artifact and wanted to hire the Blue Suns to protect his ship and its cargo from pirates as they made their way back home. Vido replied that the Blue Suns would be ''happy'' to help out. Instead, he has his Blue Suns kill his would-be employers and steal the artifact for themselves.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: He's directly responsible for almost everything the Blue Suns [[KickTheDog do in the game.]] Some of his business practices include turning on clients when their opponents have higher bids, raiding and massacring cargo ships, and using slave labor on the Blue Suns ruled world of Zorya.
* CutsceneBoss: [[spoiler: If Zaeed kills him.]]
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler: If you let Zaeed kill him.]]
* DirtyCoward: He turns tail and runs the moment he sees real danger.
* EarlyBirdCameo: In one side quest, you can find a datapad that mentions him by name even if you haven't downloaded the DLC where he actually appears.
* {{Greed}}: The reason he betrayed Zaeed? Zaeed's [[EvenEvilHasStandards ethics]] meant he wasn't making quite as much money as he could've.
* GunshipRescue: [[spoiler: Villainous version. If you choose to save the refinery workers instead of go after him, he and a few of his mooks escape in an A-61 Mantis gunship.]]
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Paragon ending of Zaeed's loyalty mission]].
* KickTheSonOfABitch: His betraying and cutting ties with Zaeed can be considered this; Zaeed ''is'' hardly ethical.

* NothingPersonal: [[spoiler: He tries using the "it was just business" variation to convince Zaeed to spare him in the Renegade ending. It doesn't work.]]
* TheManBehindTheMan: It's AllThereInTheManual. He appoints one of his batarian commanders as the 'official' CEO of the Blue Suns, but in reality Vido runs the company, with the other 'CEO' just being put there to protect him from assassination attempts.
* NGOSuperpower[=/=]PrivateMilitaryContractor: He runs one of these.

-> ''"Maybe you'll solve my problem for me."''

-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/BrianBloom

The leader of the Blue Suns on Omega, Tarak is encountered during the mission to recruit Archangel. Fed up with losing men and shipments to the persistent vigilante, he convinced the other merc groups to work with him to end their mutual enemy.

He and Zaeed also have a bit of history.
----
* AggressiveNegotiations[=/=]InformedAbility: According to his second-in-command Jentha, he can be quite the negotiator; given his temperament and the high likelihood that he's primarily dealing with other criminals, it's hard to imagine most of his negotiations would be particularly cordial.
* BadBoss: Jentha mentions that he's been both taking his frustrations out on her and planning to shoot any freelancers who are still alive if his initial plan fails.
* BigBad: In relation to his role in the VillainTeamUp on Omega, and from Archangel's perspective. From Shepard's perspective, he's just an ArcVillain.
* DeathFromAbove: Attacks Archangel's hideout with a gunship.
* EnemyMine: Teams up with rival gangs Eclipse and the Blood Pack to take down Archangel.
* FlunkyBoss: Drops troops while shooting from his gunship.
* OldFriend: Of Zaeed. The details are never brought up, but if he's present Tarak immediately goes from "Get these scum out of my face" to "Answer any questions they have." He even says it's good to see Zaeed.
* ProperlyParanoid: After one of Archangel's ambushes nearly killed him.
* TheStrategist: He seemingly came up with most of the plan.
* SayMyName: "''ARCHANGEL''! You think you can screw with the Blue Suns?!"
* StormingTheCastle: Planned on doing this to bring down Archangel.
* WeHaveReserves: Although he makes sure that none of ''his'' men are the ones used as cannon fodder.
* ZergRush: The first part of his plan is to send the freelancers straight at Archangel's hideout. [[spoiler: Subverted in that it's just a distraction to let the professionals get in close]].

She also says not to be too hard on Tarak because he's under a lot of stress, and even warns you that he might kill all the freelancers regardless of what they do. She's still fanatically loyal to the Blue Suns.

->''[[TemptingFate "Nothing goes wrong here."]]''

-->'''Voiced by''': FredTatasciore

The captain of the Purgatory, a PrisonShip run by the Blue Suns that takes the kind of criminals no-one wants ''anywhere'' on their planet. He claims to be doing this "for the good of the galaxy", but regularly has prisoners beaten or [[ThrownOutTheAirlock spaced]] as an example to others, and much of his funding comes from selling inmates to people looking for payback. Cerberus arranges for Shepard to buy Jack from him, but it turns out his eyes are bigger than his stomach.
----
* AllThereInTheManual: In the Codex, it states that turians that do not wear the colonial identity facepaint markings are called "bareface", which in their language is also synonymous with slimy politicians and pathological liars. Lo and behold, the Warden is barefaced.
* BlackmailIsSuchAnUglyWord: Whenever Kuril welcomes a prisoner, he gently asks the local authorities for a donation to keep the Purgatory running. If he isn't paid, he releases the prisoner back onto their homeworld.
-->'''Kuril''': At an unspecified place and time.\\
'''Squadmate:''' So it's an extortion racket?
* BullyingADragon: One of the biggest offenders in the entire series. Seriously, the guy thought that trying to capture the biggest badass in the galaxy would be a good idea.
* DeathGlare: When Shepard insists on keeping his/her guns, they have a glare-off. Kuril blinks first.
* EvilCounterpart: It's not dwelt on, but Garrus and Kuril both got sick of seeing criminals escape justice and took matters into their own hands - with zero accountability. Garrus abandoned the rules altogether and went SerialKillerKiller on Omega, while Kuril set up his own personal "system". Garrus remained heroic enough to inspire people, while Kuril brings out the worst in his underlings (the more times they beat a prisoner, the meaner they get).
-->'''Garrus:''' I don't agree with everything they do here, but it's in the galaxy's best interests.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Says that he "makes the galaxy safer" by locking up dangerous individuals. But when comes the biggest hero(ine) that ever lived, he tries to capture him/her [[MoneyDearBoy for the bounty]].
* InstantArmor: Tech Armor.
* TheJailer: He's the one in charge of the Purgatory.
* IWantThemAlive: Towards Jack. He doesn't mind killing Shep, though.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Starts off as a KnightTemplar, with questionable methods, but not harming innocents and trying to help the galaxy. Soon, you discover he is willing to leave dangerous criminals on planets that can't pay, and he is rather brutal to prisoners. All ambiguity goes out the airlock when tries to capture Shepard for a bounty.
* KnightTemplar: What he considers himself to be. It quickly becomes clear that he's just a slaver who uses this trope to justify his actions.
* MoreDakka: He's armed with a Revenant Light Machine Gun.
* TattooedCrook: Inverted. His lack of face tattoos is the first sign something's not right about him. See AllThereInTheManual.
* TooDumbToLive: His plan on capturing Shepard was to order him/her to just walk into a cell.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: One of the best examples imaginable.

A Blue Suns commander encountered on Korlus. She is the financial contributor and overseer to Warlord Okeer's krogan cloning project.
----
* ArcVillain: For the Korlus mission.
* BadBoss: Spends the entirety of the mission where she's encountered insulting her troops over the intercom for being unable to kill Shepard right up until Shepard literally ''walks through her front door'', and brushes off the dozens of dead Blue Suns, as well as Okeer and his vat-krogan, as replaceable. She refuses to send mechs to shield her men as they're panicking and being cut down, even though that's what mechs were originally designed to do.
* CannedOrdersOverLoudspeaker: TropeNamer. Sort of.
* FlunkyBoss: She fights alongside numerous krogan and a [[BossInMookClothing YMIR mech]].
* GeneralFailure: Okeer even describes her as such.
* InstantArmor: Tech Armor.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Just listen to her go on at the Blue Suns about her "mighty army". Okeer claims his rejected krogan would be adequate soldiers for Jedore were she not such an awful leader; this is born out by a reject "insane" krogan speaking to and obeying Shepard on sight, without question.
** Her ego's so unbearable that the first words out of Jack's mouth upon landing on Korlus are "I already want to kill this person." Jack's final remark before the fight is an exasperated "Can we shut this bitch up already?"
* SmugSnake: A bit too overconfident for her own good.

[[folder:The Blood Pack]]
[[WMG:The Blood Pack]]

The Blood Pack is a legion of mercenaries founded by a krogan battlemaster exiled from Tuchanka for striking a female in anger. The group operates in the Terminus Systems, and members are fought throughout Mass Effect 2 on places like Omega, Tuchanka and Pragia. While Eclipse are weighted towards tech/biotics and the Blue Suns toward straight up soldiers, the Blood Pack are more likely to sic varren on you or shove a flamethrower in your face.

Their hiring practices are somewhat narrower than [[EqualOpportunityEvil the other two groups]] -- they consist exclusively of krogan and vorcha. The latter make up the bulk of their ground forces but are treated with no greater respect than their attack varren; they're kidnapped and beaten into submission more often than they are "recruited."

!!The Blood Pack in general
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Vorcha, which make up most of the group.
** Suverted in ''3'', in which one vorcha shows remarkable intelligence, doesn't speak in YouNoTakeCandle, and is at the very least AffablyEvil -- and GenreSavvy enough to tell Shepard he's not stupid enough to betray ''him/her'' or Aria.
** Not to mention the affable, well-informed, and (comparatively) well-spoken vorcha who can be overheard discussing multiplayer strategy with a human female in the Citadel DLC.
* BoomerangBigot: [[spoiler:The galaxy's largest abuser of vorcha is led by a vorcha]].
** Although that ''may'' have something to do with [[spoiler: all the krogan mercenaries that went back to Tuchanka in the wake of the genophage cure. You'll notice that neither Aria nor Hackett ever mention krogan when discussing the Blood Pack, and it was basically led by krogan mercs in 2 -- the krogan didn't even consider vorcha full members, more like varren that could shoot and didn't crap on the floor as often]].
* EnemyMine: Aria can help Shepard get their allegiance in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''.
* FacelessGoons: The krogan members all wear helmets.
* GrenadeLauncher: According to the description for the grenade launcher available to the player, this is a popular weapon among them. [[GameplayAndStorySegregation In actuality,]] their troops just use the same ML-77 Rocket Launcher everyone else uses. However, the Blood Pack Warriors are able to fire some sort of red rocket/plasma ball thing from their shotguns (somewhat similar to the Carnage ability from the first game), which could make them an example.
* HealingFactor: Both the krogan and the vorcha. Can be countered with fire based powers like Incendiary Ammo and Incinerate.
* HighlyConspicuousUniform
* KillItWithFire: Blood Pack Pyros.
* {{Mooks}}
** EliteMooks: Krogan Warriors.
** KingMook: The krogan battlemasters. All of them are named, but they fight identically, being like normal Blood Pack Warriors except with higher health and armor, the ability to use [[EnergyBall Warp]], and a [[DeflectorShields biotic barrier]].
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: You might wanna avoid a group called the ''Blood'' Pack.
* PrivateMilitaryContractors: Though they're banned in Citadel Space.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: The krogan certainly seem to think so. The Blood Pack Warriors are all equipped with Scimitar assault shotguns.
* VillainTeamUp: Early in the game, the Omega chapters of all three big merc groups team up to get rid of Archangel. They lose.

!!Weyrloc Guld
[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/240px-Guld_cr_3848.png]]

The leader of Clan Weyrloc and the head of the Blood Pack on Tuchanka.
----
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Comes with being a krogan, but he fits best, since he's in charge of the Blood Pack on Tuchanka.
* ArcVillain: For Mordin's loyalty mission, alongside [[spoiler:Maelon]] himself.
* BornLucky: Called as much by the Urdnot Scout Leader due to the fact that he has two children; a krogan having even one is unlikely because of the genophage. For this reason he is seen as TheChosenOne by some of his followers, though that doesn't help him when he encounters Shepard. The fact that he is a biotic, them being rare among krogan, can also count towards this.
* TheFaceless: Wears a helmet that covers his whole face.
* FantasticRacism: His spokesman had a RousingSpeech that detailed how Weyrloc planned to crush all Council species. [[YouTalkTooMuch Though you can shut him up via Interrupt.]]
* FlunkyBoss: Has several of his grunts fighting alongside him.
* ItsAllAboutMe: His goal in a nutshell.
* KilledOffForReal: It's pretty satisfying that you can butcher this guy however way you wish as you fight him.
* ManipulativeBastard: Successfully dupes the Urdnot Scout into thinking that he was helping all krogan by being a guinea pig for experiments. The truth, which Shepard can point out, is that Guld was only concerned about using the genophage cure to help his own clan, to hell with everything else.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: A krogan with one living child is unlikely because of the genophage. Having two is interpreted by some as a sign. It's a big part of how Guld even has followers to begin with.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He wants to cure the genophage, but only so he can conquer the galaxy. He's willing to experiment on humans and ''members of his clan'' in order to achieve this goal.

* BadBoss: If Grunt is present during the mission, he shoots one of his vorcha in the head just to prove a point.
* BoomHeadshot: See BadBoss.
* TheBrute: Serves as this in the FiveBadBand on Omega.
* EnemyMine: Works with the rival merc groups for the sole purpose of taking down Archangel.

----
* AlliterativeName: Only his first name is known, until an e-mail in the third game reveals his full name.
* ArcVillain: Only appears during Jack's loyalty mission, as the main antagonist.
* BadassBystander: See HeroicSacrifice.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy:
** He doesn't scream and rave like most examples of this trope, but his staring, twitching and his very un-funny InsaneTrollLogic with regards to the Teltin facility leave you in no doubt that he's mad. As for the brainwashed, well, he went through much of the same stuff Jack did.
** It's later mentioned that he turned to drugs after escaping Cerberus in order to cope with what had happened to him. That somewhat explains why he has a rather skewed way of thinking when you encounter him.
* HeroicSacrifice: If you prevent Jack from killing him in the second game, [[spoiler:he dies in the third game by saving a shuttle full of children evacuating from the Reapers]].
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Wanted to [[spoiler:restart the Teltin facility and abduct biotic children for experiments like Cerberus had. If you convince Jack to spare his life, he dies in ''3'' saving a shuttle evacuating children from the Reapers]].
* ShoutOut: His last name is likely a reference to Shohreh Aghdashloo, the voice actress for Admiral Raan.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He's convinced himself that everything he went through had to have some sort of value.

[[folder:Eclipse]]
[[WMG:Eclipse]]

Eclipse is a mercenary corporation founded by an asari commando. They are employed as security or firepower. They appear as commonly battled {{Mooks}} in Mass Effect 2, where they are encountered on places like Illium, Omega and Bekenstein.

!!Eclipse in general
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Like the other groups, some of their members, such as Wasea, Enyala, and Jaroth.
* EnemyMine: Aria can help Shepard get their allegiance in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''.
* FacelessGoons: Only named members don't wear helmets.
* HighlyConspicuousUniform: They wear all bright yellow armor.
* JackOfAllTrades: Relative to the other merc groups, Eclipse has both Vanguards ''and'' Engineers. It's no wonder they comprise the mooks in Miranda's loyalty mission; her skill set allows her to deal with both barriers and shields.
* {{Mooks}}
** EliteMooks: Eclipse Engineers and Vanguards.
** KingMook: Eclipse Operatives and Eclipse Commandos.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Given the superstitions surrounding eclipses, it might be a good idea to avoid a group that uses the phenomenon as their name.
* PaletteSwap: Their human units are just palette swapped versions of Blue Suns units, with at most one or two small attributes added (human vanguards have a slightly different head and toss Warps).
* PsychoForHire: Anyone who wants to join the Eclipse Sisters based in Illium have to commit homicide as part of their initiation ([[FridgeBrilliance this is also a hint to the seemingly innocent Elnora's true nature]]).
** Shepard can talk with the founder and leader of Eclipse, Jona Sederis in the third game and she comes off as the most [[AxCrazy psychotic]] of them all. Amusingly, her second-in-command is named [[StealthPun Sayn]].
* PrivateMilitaryContractors: They're particularly prominent in asari space.
* VillainTeamUp: With the other two big merc groups on Omega, to take down Archangel. They lose.

The leader of the Eclipse mercs on Omega. Heavily involved in the red sand trade. He teams up with the other merc groups to take down Archangel.
----
* DrugsAreBad: He runs the red sand trade.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes[=/=]ItsPersonal: Archangel killed two of his top lieutenants before Shepard meets him on Omega. One of them was his brother.
* EvilGenius: From Archangel's perspective. He controls the mechs and helped Tarak plan the attack.
* HandCannon: He's equipped with an M-6 Carnifex.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: You can hack his heavy mech to kill all his mercs, and rarely him.
* KillItWithFire: Like other Eclipse Operatives, he possesses the [[{{Fireballs}} Incinerate]] power and holographic [[AttackDrone Combat Drones.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: After you kill all his mercs either way (through normal gunfire or hacking his heavy mech), he comes charging out with a Carnifex.
* WeHaveReserves: He's perfectly happy throwing freelancers at Archangel for this reason.
* YouKilledMyFather: The main reason he hates Archangel is because he killed one of Jaroth's top lieutenants - who also happened to be his brother. "So yes, it's pretty damn personal."

* CatchPhrase: She and her lackeys are fond of referring to Miranda as "the bitch".
* FlunkyBoss: Fights with other Eclipse members.

* InTheBack: To Niket, if you stop Miranda from killing him. Also to the completely innocent transport dock officer. [[ForTheEvulz Both were completely unnecessary.]]
* IronicEcho: "I'm not stealing her, I'm rescuing her."
* KickTheDog: She shoots a transport agent for not much reason when the latter tries to run off.

* SmugSnake: She's totally convinced she can take Shepard and Miranda. It doesn't end well for her.

* CatchPhrase: More of a favorite word, but both he and Enyala are fond of referring to Miranda as "[[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch the bitch]]".
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: The subtitles only refer to him as "Merc Leader".

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:If let go in ''2'', she doesn't get mentioned in ''3'', so we have no idea if Ilium's police eventually caught her]].
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Let her go, only to find out later that she killed Pitne's partner, and likely would be going after Pitne himself next.

* ArcVillain: For Grunt's loyalty mission.
* ActorAllusion: Creator/MichaelDorn [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration once again plays]] a ProudWarriorRaceGuy, albeit an evil one. [[TheWorfEffect And gets put in his place quite a few times.]]
* BloodKnight: Completely embraces it and feels all krogan should.
* BullyingADragon: Thinks nothing of picking a fight with three people who have just survived a fight with a [[RentAZilla thresher maw]] on foot... and may very well have actually ''killed it''.
* EvilSoundsDeep: He's a krogan who's voiced by Creator/MichaelDorn, no less.
* FantasticRacism: He's not a fan of aliens or Grunt, a tank-bred krogan.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He hates Grunt and despises the very idea of a tank-bred krogan being granted adult status. But he's willing to exploit Grunt for political means once he's shown how {{Badass}} he is. [[HypocrisyNod He does acknowledge this]] and is not all that happy about it.

The "deal" he offers Grunt consists of him being Clan Gatatog in name only, with no right to breed or serve on an alien ship. What most offends Grunt is how cushy a life it sounds.
* UseYourHead: Can fall victim to this ''three times''. Once by Wrex, once by Shepard (a ''human''), and once by Grunt.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: To an extent. He firmly believes that reforming the krogan would only weaken them and strip them of who they are. Therefore, he's willing to do everything to oppose Wrex's ideas, even if they're hypocritical in nature, which he himself acknowledges.
