If Pathfinder Ryder settles an outpost on Elaaden, Kariste Archana becomes the mayor of the Andromeda Initiative's New Tuchanka outpost on Elaaden. She is tasked to restore the relations between the Nexus and the Clan Nakmor. She has a high esteem of Ryder's accomplishment to secure the relationship with the krogan. She thinks that Nexus' leadership decisions during the uprising were shortsighted and she intends to not repeat the same mistakes.
Kariste is concerned about an Architect that has been spotted near the settlements and that it could harm the colonists. Ryder may confront and defeat the architect which removes the threat that Kariste was worried about.
