Bastion-adept Felicia “Space Marine Barbie” Shepard uses her Biotic Pull to bring her enemies to her so “they can see who it was who killed them”. Her Adept Mastery causes her friends to cheer when they catch sight of her iconic pink armor on the battlefield. She carries an M-12 Locust submachine gun because of its pedigree as “the gun that killed two presidents”, according to Kasumi Goto. She prizes it more as a status symbol than a weapon, because she mainly uses her biotic powers in combat.
Life wasn’t always so glamorous for Felicia. She grew up in the slums of Earth, but her beauty, charisma, and compassion won her a lot of friends and she knew she was destined for better things. He reputation as a biotic prodigy soon attracted Alliance recruiters.
Early in her military career she found herself facing an overwhelming enemy force. She risked her own life to save her fellow soldiers and defeat batarian slavers on Elysium despite the impossible odds. Her heroism earned her medals and she was selected to be the face of the Alliance in recruiting drives, causing enlistment to triple.
“When I found Jacob, I offered to help him fight, but he kept telling me to stay down and that it was his duty to protect me. I told him, “Nobody puts Barbie in a corner!” and made him salute his superior officer. “Now we do things my way,” I said. Having me in charge of the mission seemed to buoy his spirits.”
“I do not condone Miranda’s execution of Wilson, but other than that we hit it off okay. She seems like a good girl. If she’d just lighten up a little she’d be prettier, but at least she understood I was the one calling the shots. Who knows, maybe we could be friends.”
“Tali’s reluctance to discuss her mission really hurt me. After everything I did for her. She acted like she thought she’s way smarter than me and all that science stuff was over my head. I mean, I constantly stick up for quarians, telling people they aren’t like people think they are, and then these bubble boys went and confirmed all the old stereotypes. Don’t they get how bad it makes them look in the eyes of other races?”
“I’ll admit, I broke down crying at the thought of the terror in the hearts of innocent little colonial children taken by the hideous Collectors. They needed a strong woman to fight for them.”
“Kasumi’s price for signing on was helping her with a cool-sounding heist. I assumed I’d get a cut of whatever it was she was stealing. We needed her skills at getting into places that want to keep you out. I wonder what she looks like under that unfriendly hood. “
“When you need any sort of relief aid anywhere in the galaxy, go to the Presidium. Coming back to that beautiful place felt like a homecoming for me. I didn’t want to leave.”
“I wanted to go to the Citadel Tower to ask the Council for help, but even I couldn’t get in. They have the best crowd-sourcing network for dealing with a galaxy-wide problem.”
“Well, if you can’t get aid from the Council, you can always buy it in the Wards. And I did, laying out a lot of cash to be mission-ready (and for a few personal items, too). I love shopping there and wished I could have spent a few more days and a lot more money there. If you need it, they’ve got it, for a price.”
“I wish everyone in the galaxy was as brilliant and easy to deal with as an asari. Our society owes them a lot for all they’ve done for it over the millennia. Ironically, they’re so nice to the point of being a bit ‘colorless’ that they make it difficult to be friends with them. And, of course, relating to someone who’s lived a few centuries more than you can be difficult.”
“Aria comes off as insecure. She needs to learn how not to make an enemy of everyone or she’ll lose it all in the end. Like they say, ‘You catch more astroflies with space honey’, or something like that.”
“I really didn’t think that oddball Dr. Solus’ perplexing mumblings would be much help to me. For him, the end justified the means, but his means may mire me in a moral morass.”
“Garrus, or should I say ‘Archangel’, learned the hard way on Omega that fame has a price. My friend held out by himself for a impressively long time, and we got there just as he needed us.”
“I’ve never liked the rude, cruel, primitively tribal krogans.”
“I hope ultimately Jack will let me be her friend and stop being such an asshole. If she does, I think I can really help her work through her emotions.”
“I love Kaidan deeply. Our souls were one, but I can’t hold on to that emotion if it’s going to jeopardize my success. I have to let go of it.”
“Samara killed in cold blood. What a disgrace. You can’t solve every problem by killing people.”
“I have no patience for Thane’s selfish, shameless “I’m just a tool” bullshit. He’s a cold-blooded murderer and he needs to deal with that in his heart instead of hiding from it.”
“Despicable Morinth’s recklessness hurt a lot of people but she just didn’t care. Her inability to put herself in other’s shoes disgusted me, and I had to defeat her for the good of the galaxy.”
“Thought about handing over Legion to Cerberus for analysis. He wasn’t a person, just a machine, after all, and the technology might help us beat the geth. But I just needed to ask him why he was ‘wearing’ my old armor.”
