Go To

Vrael Seleukos (Tamerlane)

A turian warlord operating in the Terminus System.

  • Affably Evil: Tamerlane is always courteous, polite and self-effacing - even to his enemies.
  • The Caligula: A mild version. He is mostly rational and humble, but he privately entertains large delusions of grandeur; he believes himself to be a modern-day conqueror in the mould of his pseudonym, and has adjusted his behaviour to correspond to this idea. Hence the throne room and the extravagant dress sense.
  • Advertisement:
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He spoke poorly of Caldus Discori and stated that he was glad that he was dead.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: He's called Tamerlane. Y'know, after this guy.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: He refers to himself - and is referred to by everyone else as - Tamerlane, rather than his turian name.
  • Wicked Cultured: He is named after an ancient conqueror, and he frequently makes references to the classical world in his speech and in his dress.



A rare case among the elcor, Kojet is a freelance mercenary residing in the Terminus Systems. He's quite arrogant, but he is, by no means, a pushover. Kojet is essentially a tank on legs, carrying enough strength and firepower to wipe out a platoon.


Matthew Jamison (DunwichHorror117)

A young human freelancer who left Earth after a major spat with his parents. Spends time in between Omega and the Citadel, doing odd jobs and even had a stint as a babysitter for the child of an Omega crime boss.

Everett Maliszewski (Son_of_Orion)

An Alliance combat engineer turned C-SEC officer turned elite Hammer operative turned mercenary. Everett has a strong sense of justice, and he is convinced that he can help make the galaxy a little safer for law-abiding citizens. Nowadays he worked freelance with Elara T'Meyra until WHO GOES THERE 2 came around...

  • Attack Drone: He can summon one, though it can also function as a Surveillance Drone if stealth is required.
  • By-the-Book Cop: Was this when he worked for C-sec.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Is prone to this when he's stressed enough.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • I Call It "Vera": Sky-Eye, his Attack Drone. (Not to be confused with the member known as SkyEye.)
  • Lawful Good
  • Manly Tears: He shed a few when the Hammers rescued dozens of civilians from a buried bomb shelter on Taetrus.
  • The Mole: Subverted. At the end of WHO GOES THERE Chapter 1, it's revealed that Everett was ordered by Maximillian van der Trask to copy the contents of Mor Ortlo's OSD onto his omni-tool and hand the information over to him. However, he stopped himself at the last second, since he was in the freaking salarian embassy at the time, and he'd be betraying Aphin by doing so.
  • Rouge Angles of Satin: Suffers from this in "So a Krogan Walks Into a Bar..." when he attempts to contact Asharia via text after drinking two shots of batarian ale and eating krogan food.
    Everett: ashria/sick/tuhaka's deligt/zakra ward/hlep
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: He fought in the Eden Prime War. Everett's case isn't as severe as some other veterans, but bringing up the war around him can some bad memories to resurface, dragging down his mood in an instant.
  • The Engineer: Covers variants 1 and 2.
  • Theme Naming: Everett's callsign was Anvil.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: He despises slavery. Orion is completely unsympathetic to any slaver, regardless of their intentions.
  • Turn in Your Badge: Though he wasn't fired from C-SEC; he quit, after his superior condoned the usage of torture as a means to extract information from a suspect.

Nathaniel "Nate" Letho (Shadow Nate)

A human biotic slaver. Little about him is known so far apart from the fact that he was able to operate on the Citadel unnoticed.

Jack Napier (Infinite Monkeys)

A satire author with a dark and mysterious past, he decides to go once more into the mercenary business in order to escape from whatever is chasing him.

Gideon Archer (Custodian)

An aging veteran commanding a mercenary battlecruiser and former officer within the Alliance navy. Having lost his commission and much of his original crew in the Skyllian Blitz he holds a serious grudge against the Batarians. He’s best known for defending new colonies in the hopes slavers will turn up for him to fight.
