A kett Prefect is significantly taller than the Chosen and Ascendant. They are dressed in spiked armor with what appears to be a flowing cape behind them. Some Prefects' voices are somewhat high-pitched, perhaps done to give them distinction over other kett, most notably the Archon.
In battle, a Prefect utilizes a round, drone-like item to project an impenetrable barrier around themself. The Prefect will then be impervious to any damage until the barrier is taken down, which creates a brief time window for Ryder and the squad to inflict damage until the barrier is restored. Being a high-ranking kett, they are capable of indefinitely summoning lesser kett to fight for them.
Mass Effect: Andromeda Edit
At least five Prefects can be fought by Pathfinder Ryder:
- The Cardinal in the kett exaltation facility on Voeld.
- The Valiant and her Decimation squad on Ark Leusinia.
- The Invictor in Eos' kett base.
- An Unnamed Prefect in the kett mountain base on Voeld.
- An Unnamed Prefect before the fight with the Archon on Meridian.
The three named kett appear to show different responses when encountered by the Pathfinder's team. The Invictor behaves in domineering manner as Ryder challenges him, while the Valiant shows relentless behavior when pursuing the damaged Asari ark, and the Cardinal being somewhat cowardly in personality, to the point of pleading mercy to Ryder for the sake of her exaltation facility.
