Dalatrass Linron is the leader of the Salarian Union in 2186. Described as a "queen bee" of Sur'Kesh's wealthiest bloodline, she retained her position by a narrow margin in a recent election to determine the leadership of the Linron bloodline.
Mass Effect 3[edit | edit source]
During a war summit between salarians, krogan, and turians, the dalatrass becomes openly hostile towards the Clan Urdnot leader, Urdnot Wrex or Urdnot Wreav, who demands a genophage cure in exchange for helping the turians hold the Reapers off Palaven. The dalatrass vehemently protests, fearing that the krogan would simply wage war against the galaxy again if they manage to defeat the Reapers.
Primarch Adrien Victus surmises that a cure would take years to be developed. However, the Urdnot leader reveals a reliable inside source has provided video evidence of surviving fertile female krogan from Maelon's experiments being held captive on Sur'Kesh. Linron questions the authenticity of the evidence but the Urdnot leader would call her out on her lie.
Faced with indisputable evidence and under pressure from both the Primarch and Commander Shepard, the dalatrass is forced to reveal their exact location. At the conclusion of the meeting, she tries to press her point about the long-term effects of the plan, though Shepard can optionally cut her off.
Before heading to Tuchanka, Dalatrass Linron tries to cut a secret deal with Shepard. She reveals that any attempts at curing the genophage will be in vain, as the Shroud facility needed to disperse the cure was already sabotaged by salarian operatives years before. In exchange for keeping the sabotage a secret, she pledges the support of the salarians' First Fleet as well as their finest scientific minds to aid in the construction of the Crucible.
If Shepard cures the genophage, the dalatrass makes her disappointment clear through email and by withholding salarian support. Despite this, Admiral Hackett later reports that STG strike teams are willing to assist Allied forces even without the dalatrass's approval.
If Shepard fakes the genophage cure, Linron's email is worded differently. If the salarian colonel Vaykom is present in London for the final battle on Earth, he personally reiterates the dalatrass' thanks for handling the krogan "situation".
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In an Alliance News Network report, it is implied that Linron is not a name of a person per se but the name of a salarian bloodline, along with the Narra bloodline. A bloodline could similarly be identified as a family or a clan name, such as Clan Urdnot.
- Grey DeLisle also provides the voices of Nassana Dantius, Lieutenant Durand and Kahlee Sanders. She also worked on BioWare's Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening, voicing Velanna, Danella, and Private.
