Garrus Vakarian (Location: Normandy SR2)
Solana Vakarian (Location: Palavan [sic])

22:08: G: Hey, glad I caught you.

22:10: S: Just about to head to bed. Late my time. Where are you?

22:10: G: Come on, you know I can't tell you that. Not a secure channel.

22:12: S: Oh, please, Garrus. You don't have to be all secretive. Illium?

22:12: G: Give it up, Sol.

22:13: S: You're one to talk. Still playing at Spectre, even after all these years.

22:16: G: How's Mom?

22:16: S: Last round of treatments didn't go so well.

22:16: G: Damn it.

22:17: S: We may try an offworld center. Some salarian doctors have something that might work.

22:17: S: It's not covered, though.

22:18: G: Of course not.

22:19: G: I can pay for the treatments.

22:19: S: That's a nice thought. I could really use you here, though.

22:20: G: I can't. How much for the first round?

22:20: S: Forget it.

22:21: G: I can pay.

22:24: S: Sure you can. You lose your C-Sec job, and what about that contract job you were doing up until recently?

22:24: G: Yeah. It ended badly.

22:25: S: So don't give me more garbage about how you're going to help.

22:25: S: You obviously can't help or won't bother.

22:25: S: Damn it, you haven't even bothered to sync up for video chat since you lost that damn job.

22:26: S: If you're ashamed to look me in the eye, then why are we even talking?

22:26: S: Go have your fun doing merc work or screwing around or whatever. Just don't act like you care.

22:30: G: You're right, Sol. I'm sorry.

22:32: S: No, I'm sorry. Things are rough with Mom. The salarians are expensive as hell.

22:33: G: I wish I could help.

22:35: G: I'm going on a trip. Might be away from the relays for a while.

22:35: S: Another pleasure cruise?

22:36: G: You know me.

22:38: S: Send me something nice.

22:38: G: I'll be in touch when I can.

Private Message[]

Last mail message received before Omega 4 relay jump:

Mr. Vakarian,

On behalf of Helos Medical Institute, I would like to thank you for your efforts. It has been understandably difficult to get Collector tissue, given the sensitive situation on the human colonies, so the samples you sent to us have been extremely helpful. Please also offer my sincere thanks to Dr. Solus -- I understand he made some calls to the Special Tasks Group, and as a result, our corporate security clearance was upgraded.

Your concern about Corpalis Syndrome is well-founded. While rare, it's an ugly disease. The neurological degeneration is both difficult to witness and nearly impossible to halt. We are in fact working on some test trials for a new treatment, and I believe that with our new STG clearance, we can get all fees for trial members waived as a governmental cooperation effort with the Turian Hierarchy.

Thank you again for your assistance. Donations like these help keep us running. Per your request, we will keep your donations strictly anonymous.

Dr. Jelith Kieron
Helos Medical Institute
