Character headings. Edit

With the fact that the format of this series is to feature a different story each issue I would suggest an alternative layout to the one presently used to prevent clutter. Perhaps to list the characters by the issue they appear, rather than their allegiance? Garhdo (talk) 12:30, July 25, 2013 (UTC)

For consistency of the wiki, I would prefer to keep the allegiance separation. However we could have a split between the issues because they are all differents stories (espcially because ME: Foudation has its own article). If we do that, we should do the same for ME:Homeworlds which has the same problem. --DeldiRe 14:22, July 25, 2013 (UTC)
I wouldnt use all three headings for each issue, especially with only one or two characters per line. I think if we split by issue we should do the same for the Homeworlds page. Garhdo (talk) 19:42, July 25, 2013 (UTC)
I think we should do what the Mass Effect: Homeworlds character page does, it looks better than just putting character's by what issue they appear in.

Adversary not ally Edit

I understood the comic story that main antagonist of DLC ME3:Citadel was using the Shadow Broker agent whole time. The double-cross in the end makes her an adversary pretending an ally. On page Saren is an adversary because for Anderson the protagonist he was a manipulating enemy, they were on same side but he used him not just to deal with the batarians but also to ensure Anderson won't be the 1st human spectre. In the comic the situation isn't so different. That girl was using the agent to survive and killed her after gaining her trust, to me that looks like typical manipulation of a villain. 21:03, July 25, 2013 (UTC)

It's not evident in the comic that Maya's intention from the start was to betray and kill Brooks. All we're shown in the comic is that Maya shot Brooks when Brooks refused to take her along, which on its face is a spur of the moment betrayal, not the culmination of a process of manipulation. Until that moment, Maya's role as Brooks' ally dominates her presence in the comic. If later issues of ME: Foundation or other ME media reveal that Maya did in fact premeditate Brooks' murder and had been willfully manipulating Brooks to that end, then we'd have grounds to consider her an antagonistic character. But for now it's speculation. -- Commdor (Talk) 21:18, July 25, 2013 (UTC)
I support commdor's interpretation. Maya is clearly a side character of brooks instead of being her direct adversaries. However it is true that it can be hard to put some characters in one or another sections. We have to make a choice and this one seems to be the most relevant.--DeldiRe 22:23, July 25, 2013 (UTC)

unnamed characters Edit

I have a question. If Roth's decoy is mentioned as a character here, will also be mentioned salarian Thane's target? In chapter 1 Shadow broker agent Brooks was after Roth, but she found only an unnamed imposter. The character has no name, but is mentioned. Is he mentioned only because has big involvement in the chapter? Thane's salarian target also is nameless, but we have informations about his backgound. He also was a reason Thane met Irikah.FirstDrellSpectre (talk) 07:00, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

there's no comparison here. roth's decoy actually spent some panels interacting with the issue protagonists. the salarian war criminal was there simply to provide the backdrop for thane and irikah's encounter (plus alien birds).
the minimum for inclusion is a character article. nothing else is known about the salarian that wasn't already mentioned in some articles. there are one or two lines about the character, at most a small paragraph, and for article creation significantly more than that is required. end of discussion.

MEF 12 Edit

Does he deserve a new page?

I can take care of the translation if I have a go (or no answer). --DeldiRe (talk) 14:36, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

no. too little content to stand on its own.

I guess that I will have to wait for the minor character project to be completed ;)--DeldiRe (talk) 14:44, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

Translation of the text by google:

"Batarian slavers turn to Gray Mediator for information to find out who was behind the killing of several leaders of the slave trade.

Batarians go to Steve Kay and hire him to get rid of Thane Krios family. Batarians Kai and Steve waited a moment when Thain was away on a new job. Night in the pouring rain Steve breaks into the house, where there was Yreka and brutally murders her.

Thain decides to take revenge and hunts down slavers, one after another with a view to know the name of the killer. Having their own, Thain ambush. In the crowd of passers Thain finds Steve Kay and shot from a sniper rifle wounds him, and a moment later finally finishes."

MEF 13 Edit

The half bald old man has name, so will he have own page and will he be mentioned on the MEF characters page? I'll ask again, was that Rasa or Wilson behind mechs Shepard had to destroy on the station?FirstDrellSpectre (talk) 17:01, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

there simply isn't ANY unique information on the old man that isn't a rehash of the data in rasa's page. not even a decent picture. stop asking questions like this as there are numerous examples on minimum pagelength already on the site.
as for your other question the incident with wilson happened in ME2. the incident in the comics happened 1 year before shepard awoke. completely irrelevant here.
