Lorik Qui'in is the turian manager of the Synthetic Insights Noveria branch, found at the Port Hanshan mezzanine. A consummate businessman, he carries himself in a polite, refined manner, and is happy to talk about current events, including the lockdown at Peak 15 and the arrival of Matriarch Benezia.

Mass Effect[edit | edit source]

Commander Shepard is directed to Qui'in by Gianna Parasini, after failing to obtain a garage pass from Administrator Anoleis. Lorik explains that he is in a difficult situation: Anoleis is accepting bribes and Qui'in managed to gather evidence on his corruption, but Anoleis found out and accused Qui'in of being corrupt himself. Anoleis has illegally paid Noveria security to ransack Qui'in's office, in an effort to find the incriminating data. Lorik offers a garage pass in exchange for Shepard recovering the data from his computer, though he warns the Commander that violence may be necessary.

Once Shepard has recovered the evidence, Parasini asks for help conducting her investigation into Anoleis. She wants Shepard to convince Qui'in to testify; once confronted with this, Lorik is annoyed at Shepard's presumption, but the Commander can persuade him, or give up and exchange the data for a garage pass.

Depending on the resolution of the corruption plot, namely by giving the evidence directly to Qui'in, if later revisited at the mezzanine, Qui'in will proudly relate that he is now the Administrator of Port Hanshan.

If Shepard handed evidence from the office directly to Lorik instead of Gianna, the Commander will receive this email:

Subject: A fly in the lotion...

From: Lorik Qui'in

Commander Shepard,

I've come to have a lot of balls in flight, as you humans say. It was brought to my attention that you're still around, working on something secret. Frankly, I hope that whatever you do keeps you far away from Noveria this time, but if you must come back and, what is it, upset the fruit cart, let me know, and I'll clear a path for you for old times' sake.

A pleasure as always,

Lorik Qui'in, Administrator, Port Hanshan
