Added DiffLines:

* TwiceShy: Background chatter on Aya reveals that Avela and Jaal were mutually interested in each other at some point, but both were too nervous to make a move.


Jaal's true (presumably birth) mother and a member of the Resistance. She appears to be very affectionate towards her son and is very happy to meet Ryder.

Jaal's true (presumably birth) (meaning biological) mother and a member of the Resistance. She appears to be very affectionate towards her son and is very happy to meet Ryder.



* ActionMom: Implied. She is a member of the Resistance and probably encouraged her children towards a similar path.

* ActionMom: Implied. She is a member of the Resistance and probably encouraged her children towards a similar path. Then there's Jaal's statement that the mother should always be given a gun...


Added DiffLines:

* IWantGrandkids: If Ryder romances Jaal, Sahuna asks for information about the human reproduction "for the obvious reason." She does this even if Ryder is male. Since Ryder appears to be the first human Sahuna has met, she may not know what Ryder's gender is at first.

----
*ActionMom: Implied. She is a member of the Resistance and probably encouraged her children towards a similar path.
*AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Towards Jaal. When Ryder meets her, she'll immediately start gushing about how Jaal is "her favorite" and listing off his many virtues until an embarrassed Jaal asks her to stop.
*ParentalFavoritism: Played with. She claims Jaal is her favorite child, but Jaal tells Ryder that she considers all her children "the favorite." It's more likely she said this as a way to make Jaal look good in front of Ryder.
*ShipperOnDeck: For Jaal and Ryder if they have a romance. She immediately takes a liking to Ryder, brags about Jaal to them, and will send all kinds of intrusive emails afterwards asking details about human biology and Ryder's likes/dislikes. It's safe to say she basically considers them a member of the family from the first meeting.

* {{Expy}}: Of Ka'hairal Balak from the original trilogy: An AbsoluteXenophobe whose hatred drives him to commit terrorist acts with VERY high amounts of CollateralDamage. He alienates some of his followers when they realize just how mean spirited he really is, but not impossible to reason with, and can even have a minor HeelRealization if he gets to live long enough to have one.

He alienates some of his followers when they realize just how mean spirited he really is, is. You can shoot him, ending his threat but not impossible martyring him in the eyes of his "revolution", or spare him, leaving him still at large but his operations considerably set back. If spared, he proves possible to reason with, and thought it is unlikely that he can even have a minor HeelRealization if he gets to live long enough to have one. truly let go of his hatred.

* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist: While he claims that what they do is to protect the angara, it becomes clear from their actions ([[WithUsOrAgainstUs murdering angaran milky way sympathizers]], attempting to destroy entire biospheres and trying to [[spoiler:blow up an angaran holy place [[FalseFlagOperation with stolen Initiative tech]]]]) that he's motivated purely by a hatred of aliens and only use angaran safety as a cheap excuse.

* AFatherToHisMen: Goes with aforementioned Chains of Commanding. If Vehn Terev is executed, he notes he'll at least notify what's left of the guy's squad that the Moshae's capture wasn't their fault.

to:

* AFatherToHisMen: Goes with aforementioned Chains of Commanding. If Vehn Terev is executed, he notes he'll at least notify what's left of the guy's squad that the Moshae's capture wasn't their fault. An overheard conversation with one of his troops has him calling off an attack because one of his codebreakers thinks it's a trap, and neither want to risk springing it.



* ShooTheDog: Mixed with kicking it at the same time, no less. He abducts all the scientists and pilgrims at the Forge, using violent means when they resist, but he has them shoved onto a shuttle rather than leaving them around for when [[spoiler:he tries to blow it up.]]



* CharacterDeath: [[spoiler:If she loses her sole access the Elaadan's water, Annea will try to have Ryder killed. Eventually, she can be found and confronted in a makeshift camp, where she'll respond with violence once again and die for it.]]

to:

* TheCavalry: [[spoiler:Assuming you don't reveal her water supply to the rest of Elaaden, she'll join in the battle against the Archon.]]
* CharacterDeath: [[spoiler:If she loses her sole access the Elaadan's Elaaden's water, Annea will try to have Ryder killed. Eventually, she can be found and confronted in a makeshift camp, where she'll respond with violence once again and die for it.]]
* DramaticallyMissingThePoint: [[spoiler:One of the datapads found by her hired thugs if she tries to assassinate Ryder proclaims "no more lives will be lost to this meddling outsider." Apparently the notion that people would stop dying if she stopped trying to ''kill'' Ryder isn't sinking in for her.]]
* EvilWearsBlack: [[spoiler:If Ryder confronts her at her secret base, she's decked out in black armor.
]]



* GuideDangIt: Her character arc seems to fizzle out if she and Ryder end up as enemies. There's no indication in-game that she's still around afterwards and can be interacted with, and her location is both unmarked and out of the way, so even if you know she's still out there, you probably won't find her without a guide unless you happen upon her by accident.

Added DiffLines:

* YouKilledMyFather: Why she's reluctant to share her water source. Back when the Outcasts first showed up, her brother gave them shelter out of kindness. [[TheFarmerAndTheViper They killed him.]]


* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:He attempts to provoke Ryder into killing him, thus making him a martyr and strengthening the Roekaar. Jaal ''immediately'' turns the situation around on Akksul and, depending on player choices, [[KillMeNowOrForeverStayYourHand allows Akksul to shoot him to weaken the Roekaar instead]].]]

* ShutUpKirk: To Ryder.
-->'''Ryder:''' I want to be allies. ''Equal'' allies.
-->'''Akksul:''' You don't even treat your own equally. [[ArmorPiercingQuestion Isn't that why the krogan left?]]


* DebtDetestor: Some of his canned orders in Jaal's loyalty mission have him give this as a reason for attacking the Initiative - given the amount Ryder has done, is doing and probably will do for the angara, how much would it cost the angara to repay that debt? Of course, this is running on the refusal to acknowledge Ryder wouldn't ever call in those debts. (And it's just an excuse for Akksul's vendetta.)

An angaran living on Kadara, Keema is a longtime acquaintance of Reyes Vidal, and is implied to be his handler in the angaran resistance. [[spoiler: In secret, she is a high ranking member of the Collective, serving as a legitimate front for the Charlatan while he runs things behind the scenes.]]

* NotInThisForYourRevolution: Like most of the angara on Kadara, she doesn't care about the war or the Resistance, preferring to focus on Kadara's problems first and foremost.

* NotInThisForYourRevolution: Like most of the angara on Kadara, she doesn't care about the war or the Resistance, preferring to focus on Kadara's problems first and foremost. She does feed Evfra intel on Kadara when doing so benefits the Collective.

Added DiffLines:

* TheCorruptor: Manages to sway a good deal of angara to his side, including Jaal's siblings, with the implication he went after them ''specifically'' to get at Jaal.

Added DiffLines:

-->'''Peebee:''' Guy loves the sound of his voice, huh?
-->'''Jaal:''' You have no idea...

Added DiffLines:

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Both her underlings and Jaal (if he's in the party) will comment on how utterly unlike her it is to give Ryder access to her water reserves, free of charge.


* TheCynic: Openly admits to Ryder he thinks the Initiative are invading the same way as the kett (pretending to be friendly before stabbing them in the back), even after Ryder helps out.
* AFatherToHisMen: Goes with aforementioned Chains of Commanding. If Vehn Terev is executed, he notes he'll at least notify what's left of the guy's squad that the Moshae's capture wasn't their fault.



* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler:If Ryder trusts Jaal during his loyalty mission and lets him deal with Akksul, Evfra will read them the riot act for letting a terrorist point and fire a gun at Jaal.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Aside from their general racism and "Heleus for angara only" mindset, the generic troopers have outfits with their insignia on the left arm.

[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/keema.png]]

An angaran living on Kadara, Keema is a longtime acquaintance of Reyes Vidal, and is implied to be his handler in the angaran resistance. [[spoiler: In secret, she is a high ranking member of the Collective, serving as a legitimate front for the Charlatan while he runs things behind the scenes.]]
----
* AliensOfLondon: As with many angarans, she speaks with a British accent.
* TheDragon: [[spoiler: To the Charlatan.]]
* MeetTheNewBoss: [[spoiler: If Ryder helps the Charlatan overthrow Sloane Kelly, then Keema becomes the new administrator of Kadara Port while the Charlatan [[TheManBehindTheMan runs things from behind the scenes]]. Things aren't that much better than they were under Sloane's leadership, as any non-angaran who isn't affiliated with the Collective is effectively given the boot. Although Keema attempts to justify this by saying that supporters of the previous regime could not be fully trusted, there is the hint that something far more sinister is going on.]]
* MouthOfSauron: [[spoiler: She is one for the Collective, though moreso if they gain control of Kadara Port.]]
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler: If Keema is running Kadara, she doesn't extort the Ditaeon Outpost for protection money like Sloane Kelly does.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Sloane apparently thought Keema was just an ordinary socialite with no criminal ties, and she was trusted enough to be a high profile guest at the mixer Sloane throws during Reyes' loyalty mission. [[spoiler: And if the Collective takes over Kadara Port, then Keema is initially seen as a fairly progressive figure who might be able to enact some positive change on the station... until Ryder starts seeing subtle signs that indicate otherwise.]]

* ArmorPiercingRetort: At one point, shuts down Ryder's attempt to make peace with him by pointing out the Milky Way species can treat each other like crap, citing the example of the krogan. Ryder can't respond to that one, and Akksul walks off before they recover.

He alienates some of his followers when they realize just how mean spirited he really is, but not impossible to reason with, and can even have a minor HeelRealization if he gets to live long enough to have one.
