Suvi is also a potential romantic interest for a female Ryder.
In a screening interview, Suvi stated that she was from a "large, rather boisterous family" of five children. Her neuroscientist mother and mathematician father exposed her and her siblings to science from a young age, which sparked a lifelong love of the subject. She declares that there was no hesitation on her part in signing up for the Andromeda Initiative, once she learned of its existence, owing to a desire to see and experience more than one small corner of the vast universe.
In one idle conversation with Tempest helmsman Kallo Jath, Suvi mentions meeting Jien Garson once. She shook the Initiative founder's hand during a fundraiser and babbled something about wanting to "look under her dress". She was marveling about the engineering of the smart textile since it changes colors in response to sound, but unfortunately she took too much champagne and her words came out like it did.
Mass Effect: Andromeda Edit
Suvi takes her place in the Tempest's bridge along with Kallo Jath. Whenever the ship first arrives at a system in the Heleus Cluster she and Kallo often share their assessments and tangentially-related observations about the area.
Several weeks after the Archon's final defeat, Suvi is impatient to explore Meridian's inner workings, but Ryder's team hasn't gotten the clearance yet to proceed. She thinks people fear they'll inadvertently mess up something.
Ryder can begin flirting with Suvi from their first meeting. If the Pathfinder is male, she politely refuses his advances as she wants to keep things professional. She responds favorably, however, if Ryder is female.
The next flirt option can be taken anytime between their first meeting and finding the salarian ark. If Ryder confesses she finds Suvi "really cute," the science officer then says the feeling is mutual (although Kallo becomes uncomfortable in the process).
After the rescue of ark Paarchero from kett forces, talking to Suvi prompts her to invite Ryder for a break. She makes Earth tea in the Pathfinder's quarters and becomes upset, expressing regrets about leaving her home and family. If Ryder has flirted with her previously, it becomes possible to kiss her. Suvi asks whether she "really means it," and saying yes will allow them to officially become a couple.
After the events at Khi Tasira, Suvi invites Ryder to the Nexus tech labs to show off her simulation of the building blocks of Heleus life, derived from scans of Jardaan prototypes. Things like these are what she came to Andromeda for, and she's just getting started. Ryder is impressed and calls it beautiful, which she also takes to mean Suvi's passion or intellect. The Pathfinder is a bit jealous, but Suvi reminds her she doesn't have to be. Regardless of whether their beliefs often clash or are in sync with each other, even with science as her calling and passion, Suvi deems Ryder her home. They then lock the door and proceed to make out inside the lab.
During the decommissioning and repurposing of Hyperion into Port Meridian, Suvi informs the Pathfinder she's excited to be working with the angara on a joint research body currently being set up. If Ryder offers a hug, Suvi feels a bit bashful over the number of people around. Even if she knows things aren't perfect, she's just content and happy with the Pathfinder by her side.
