What is this?

Don't simply create pages with a quote and an infobox. If there's information enough for an article, put it in. If not, why has it been created in the first place? --Tullis 19:18, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

I agree. This entire article consists of a quote, an infobox (which is of course not warranted given the criteria for infoboxes around here) and some speculation. This is not needed. I say delete. When we get some actual, substantive info, the page can be resurrected. SpartHawg948 20:27, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Should I Include/Add This? Edit

"Not quite sure exactly when it first becomes available, but most definitely after you've completed the game, you gain access to conversation with Samara to talk about Justicars. When you 'investigate' the option 'the code' she ends her answer with "There is only the code." Fellow fans of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, another game by the same creators of Mass Effect (Bioware) is about the Jedi and during the main characters training, there is the Jedi Code test, 1 of 3, which must be passed, where one must memorize the code."

-It was something I noticed and recognized, and sounded so similar to the part in KotOR when he says "There is no death, there is only the Force" or SOMEONE says "There is only the code" SOMEWHERE, but I can't seem to find the info to source it or back up my claim... --Blaze55555 2:50AM Pacific Time, August 15th, 2010

That's going to be a no on adding it. For one main reason. There really is no basis for the purported trivia. The Jedi Code as it appears in KOTOR reads:
There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force.
Notice there is nothing in there about 'there is only the ___'. Not the Force, not the code, nada. The wording is somewhat similar to half of the last line, but not overly so. So there's really no basis for a comparison. Maybe if the Code Samara was referring to was more like the Jedi Code, but it isn't. Basically, the last line of your post answered your question. If you have no info or source to back your claim, it should not be included. SpartHawg948 10:28, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Samara Edit Edit

I would like to edit the Samara page, but I see no edit page sign. Can you help me, please?

Click "edit this page" at the top. --Tullis 19:42, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

i Would like to open up a forum on this subject cause i am having difficulty even getting her daughter out of the bar..... I can get her talking and then seem to do well after talking about music and art but then whatever choice I make next Morinth gets up and leaves. Someone please post the talk tree for this quest.

You've gotta be really aggressive with her. Don't talk about Justicars or Family. Talk a lot about power.

Which Trailer Edit

So which trailer is it that shows Samara helping Shepard look for Thane? The only asari I've seen aiding Shepard search for Thane doesn't appear to have the same distinctive tattoos as Samara, nor the same skin tone. SpartHawg948 20:40, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Ok, found the trailer myself and added it so that now the article is (gasp!) actually sourced!!! On a related note, with articles of this nature, sourcing needs to be provided ASAP (meaning that, in this case, it should have been included when the page was created). The sourcing is the foundation of an article of this nature, and you need a strong foundation.
On a related note, not once in the video did I see/hear mention of Samara assisting Shepard in searching for Thane, so unless another source is forthcoming, that bit is getting axed. SpartHawg948 20:56, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

New trailer. Edit

http://uk.gamespot.com/xbox360/rpg/masseffect2workingtitle/video/6241565/mass-effect-2-samara-trailer

Hi.

Yup. That's the video that I added as source material, that is currently the only source for the article (unless there's another Samara video I was unable to locate), which states nothing about Thane, or looking for Thane, or anything about Thane, one way or the other. SpartHawg948 21:05, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Clean-Up Edit

How could we better organize this page? We've got a picture, we've thrown in the ME2 banner for information regarding her quest... --Tecni 00:43, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

There's a huge chunk of paragraph with no line breaks or links in it, Shepard is referred to as "him" when we don't refer to Shepard by gender, and there's huge gaps all over the place. --Tullis 00:36, December 1, 2009 (UTC)
Fixed the "him" problem. I'm still new to adding information to wikias, so I'm not entirely sure of how to add links where they're needed in that paragraph. I'll try to figure it out and add them where they're needed. --Tecni 00:43, December 1, 2009 (UTC)
The Mass Effect Wiki Style Guide has help and links to helpful articles if you need them. And welcome. Sorry if I seem tetchy; a flood of new edits is always hard to cope with. : ) --Tullis 00:50, December 1, 2009 (UTC)
No worries, thanks for the link. I can't imagine how many articles you need to go through to make sure they're up to standard. Thanks for the welcome, too!--Tecni 00:55, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Is she a squad member? Edit

Do we actually have confirmation she's a squad member, or are people just adding her to Characters believing she is? --Tullis 00:35, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Well, her video does have the whole "mission profiles" thing at the beginning that has been there for all the other characters confirmed as party members. Tophvision 00:39, December 1, 2009 (UTC)
She's confirmed as one of the squad members, as Tophvision said, in the start of her video. --Tecni 00:42, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

info box Edit

Is it just me, or does the info box look way too big to anyone else? SpartHawg948 01:37, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Probably my fault; I was adding internal links to the paragraph and might have hit something wrong. Is there any way to shrink it? --Tecni 02:22, December 1, 2009 (UTC)
You're asking the wrong guy there, which is why I never mess w/ infoboxes except to delete unnecessary ones! :) SpartHawg948 02:25, December 1, 2009 (UTC)
Drat! Oh well. I imagine some person handy with those boxes will come around and kindly fix it up sooner or later. --Tecni 02:39, December 1, 2009 (UTC)
The image file was too big, you needed to add a |320px (or whatever number) to the image tag. I've taken care of it. Compare my edit where I say the image is too pig to the previous edit to see what I did if you're unsure.JakePT 03:59, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Quote Edit

In my edit where I fixed spacing and added a quote I apparently overrode Matt xMan's quote he added, while I was editing, with a different one. There are two different quotes, I dpn't mind which one we use. I used the one I prefer, but I have no qualms reverting to Matt's quote of others prefer. JakePT 03:57, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I gotta say, I prefer the current quote to the finding peace with the Goddess one. From what we've seen so far, the current one speaks a lot more to her character. SpartHawg948 04:08, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the messege, but I have to say I like Jake's quote a little more. If possible, could we add two of our quotes?--Matt xMan 04:15, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Not unless the article gets a LOT longer. This one is barely enough to justify one quote, and definitely not two. SpartHawg948 04:25, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I get ya.--Matt xMan 05:33, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Samara/Mordin voice actors Edit

Maggie Baird and Michael Beattie claim to voice these characters (here and here - under the 'What’s New' section). This info was posted on their websites a few months ago before the characters were publicly revealed and both have worked with ME's casting director before, so I don't see any reason why this information would be inaccurate (other than the small possibility that they just provided placeholder VO for the characters) .

Is this good enough to add to the wiki? Or should we just wait for some official confirmation from BioWare?--Morlan 04:21, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

I say it is, don't see how else they could have gotten the names (assuming the info was up when you say it was). JakePT 04:24, December 1, 2009 (UTC)
If it were just IMDB as a source, no way, as there have been some issues that have come to light lately that have caused IMDB info to no longer be considered iron-clad, set in stone documented proof. But as they list it as such on their websites, as well as the other tidbits of info you provided, we should be g2g to list that info. SpartHawg948 04:28, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Samara killing someone in a trailerEdit

Who isshe killing in a trailer looks like asari biotic right? It is not liara yes?91.76.93.114

It is not liara, if you watch it carefully it looks like samara's twin sister so who knows, and why is shepard standing there like a ficcus??
It's her daughter. Its part of her loyalty mission.

New Picture Edit

if possible could comeone find a new picture the current one makes her look far to masculine, and i just watched the trailer i dont think she looks that masculine, i dont know if its an effect of the scenery or what but hte picture just dont seem right. 68.61.39.252

Isn't a masculine asari an oxymoron? I think she looks fine. Pretty much the only way to make her look more feminine would be a shot that shows more of her body, and we do tend to like to keep character pictures (especially the infobox ones) focused on the face, as that tends to be A) What you most associate with that character, and B) What you see the most of, especially in conversations. If you have a different picture that you think would look better, by all means upload it and we'll discuss it, but I for one am of the opinion that this one looks fine for now. SpartHawg948 09:15, December 17, 2009 (UTC)
I think the current picture's fine, I don't know what you're on about. Also, it's sourced from the highest quality image available, so any replacement wouldn't look as good. Also as Spart touched on, this image is the perfect framing for conveying the necessary information for a an infobox picture. I'm sure once the game is out and we can fill the page with more info there'll be room for more screenshots from different angles, but for now, this one's fine. JakePT 10:15, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Morinth Edit

Apparently, Samara "shares" her party spot with Morinth (ie it's possible to get Morinth in the squad, but not both Morinth and Samara simultaneously) Anybody who knows more details about this care to update the article? I'm not even really sure what to do with it, given how optional this appears to be (it looks like it's a renegade only option)

At the end of Samara's loyalty mission if you have enough Renegade points you can kill Samara instead of Morinth and have Morinth take Samara's place on the squad.
From what I have seen/heard, Morinth is Samara's daughter. During Samara's loyalty mission you have the chance to kill one of them, so my guess is the one you don't kill joins you. But, I can't 100% confirm this. 112 04:27, January 25, 2010 (UTC)

Infinite Paragon w/ Samara Edit

So I thought I'd put this up here, since it's over on Lorik's page from ME, and likely should be up on those where it's possible for ME2 as well.

Someone else is free to check this, and confirm it before it would go up.

It's possible to get infinite paragon points at the very end of Samara's loyalty quest, if you chose her instead of Morinth, she will ask you if you are ready to leave yet. If you ask her "Are you okay?" she'll speak a bit, then tell her "Not Yet." you'll stay in Morinth's apartment, get +2 Paragon points, and Samara will say "Very well, I will remember the day of Morinth's birth. Tell me when you are ready" after she does, speak to her again, and repeat "Are you okay?" to continually gain as many paragon points that you want, though at +2 per conversation, and requiring you to keep Samara over Morinth, it's the only infinite source yet of morality that I've found in ME2. Jaline 19:39, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

Morinth's genetic disorder Edit

As far as I understood this disorder, it only affects pure asari, so if Samara and Shepard were to conceive a child, it wouldn't be prone to it.

I need to listen to that conversation again, from what I remember; Samara basically says she isn't exactly sure what causes the disorder and that it probably ties into bias against purebloods. Or something similar, it's not like she's a geneticist or anything. Vegnas 23:19, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

Samara RomanceEdit

Apparently you can gain a romance type result (although I'm not totally sure what the process is to get it, I believe after you defeat the Collectors) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLtttZp6Dro FeeZ 04:40, February 9, 2010 (UTC)

Samara's Age Edit

The official site states (just as this article does) that she is 600 years old. But in one of the dialogues she says she is "around 1000".


Well - i do believe the game more than the official site, so her age here should be changed

Crap Joke Edit

I'm tempted to add that the Lada Samara was "just a car", but I feel it's not a very encyclopaedic contribution. :P --vom 11:05, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

I'm glad i'm not the only one who saw the humor is the word "Justicar". One of the first things i thought when i heard was, if the Justice League had their own vehicle then that's what it'd be called(ya know like Fantastic 4, Fantastacar?). Kinda enforces the Samara/Superman comparisons but that's a different discussion.


Ah, Lada. Another fine product of communism. Looking at those cars, one wonders why they lost the Cold War. I mean, any country that can turn out fine, state-manufactured vehicles like that must be bound for success, right? :P SpartHawg948 13:26, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
I'm trying to think of something positive to say about Ladas... and failing miserably. Then again, I think the same about Buick and British Leyland (although some may make the case for the presence of communism there too). But this is all detracting from my wonderful "just a car" joke! Sigh, I'll get me coat. --vom 14:10, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
I will admit, it was pretty funny. You are correct that it's not the most encyclopedic content (I'm pretty sure someone would cry 'shenanigans' pretty quickly'), but I did get a good chuckle out of it. :) SpartHawg948 14:12, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Samara and the CodeEdit

I've not actually played ME2 yet, so I can't rely on in-game facts to back me up, but I have noticed something that seems odd about this article. The Trivia section states that, should Shepard express a romantic interest in Samara, she will turn him/her down, but not because of the justicar Code, as the Code doesn't forbid relationships.


"This rejection is not due to the Code, which does not forbid such things, but by her own choice."


Yet the article about the Code states that justicars can't have relationships or children. Isn't there an inconsistency there?


(Nilfalasiel 10:27, March 10, 2010 (UTC))


Well, there's nothing in the Codex entry on Justicars about them not being able to have kids or relationships, and I don't recall hearing it in game. I'll leave something on the Justicar talk page about it and if there are no bites, I'll remove it. Maybe someone just got 'Justicar' and 'Jedi' confused when they were editing! :P SpartHawg948 10:39, March 10, 2010 (UTC)


While talking with Samara, I think she says something to the effect of she only became a Justicar when Morinth left seclusion and went on her killing spree. I'm assuming prior to that moment, she was not a Justicar. Given that Morinth is the eldest of 3 daughters (the other 2 are still in seclusion), Samara obviously had an extended period of relationship with another Asari (all her daughters are referred to as "purebloods" and Samara speculates the bias against purebloods among the Asari is because these children have an increased chance of becoming an Ardat-Yakshi, because all 3 of her daughters are Ardat-Yakshi). Tilarta 02:36, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

If Paragon


If Paragon Shepherd tries to romance Samara, she says: ""I serve a code stronger and deeper than any feelings. If we survive this mission, my oath to you ends. I will be bound by the Code again. That makes a relationship impossible." The rejection is due to the code, at least partly, although who knows if the Code explicitly says "thou shall not sleep with aliens"?

Face Model Edit

Here is a link to the face model for Samara, for those interested. http://www.modelmayhem.com/1049977

AGE Edit

600 years, where did that come from, i could swear that she was pushing a thousand, dont asari only become matriarchs whne they turn a thousand. Where did this age come from, explain please. ralok 16:38, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

According to the bioloby section of the asari article, the Madien states hits around 350 and considering Samara first had to have childrne, we don't know how long that took, even though Morinth ran when she was only 40, that would still put Samara's age well over 600. 350+400=750 last time I checked. Also I can't remember when but she even says that she is nearly one thousand years. The contunality error is after Samara: The Ardat-Yakshi mission where she says that she has another 1000 years to live with what she did. Lancer1289 16:45, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure she says she's nearly 1000 when you question her about romance. I'm paraphrasing heavily probably, but the quote is something like "I am nearly a thousand years old. I know myself and my motivations... but your curiosity is quite welcome." Of course, "nearly one thousand" is entirely subjective, so it really doesn't narrow her age down at all. Matt 2108 16:51, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

And by the way, she tells Shepard she has "hundreds" of years left to live with what she did, not another thousand. Matt 2108 16:53, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

How long is the maximum lifespan of an asari anyways? i dont think its ever specifically stated, dangit this is a problem in every science fiction universe figuring out how long people are supposed to live, i have had this conversation on like three other wikis i think ralok 16:54, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks Matt 2108 for correcting me. As to how long, I'd say probably well over 1000 yeasr because that is an average and asari can probably live for maybe another 100 - 250 years after that. That is my guess however. Lancer1289 16:57, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

OH epic win official website says ESTIMATED, does anyone care to bring in the definition of the word estimated ralok 17:01, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

Let's not but a guess is not good information when there is in game information that provides a lot of evidence to the contrary. Lancer1289 17:02, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

Bear in mind though that the ages from the website are (in the words of Christina Norman) "relative to human years today" and are in several cases demonstrably false. After all, the official website also says Grunt is 22 years old when he's not even 1, and calls Mordin 50 when he is actually about 30. SpartHawg948 18:01, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

But wouldnt that mean she is a 600 year old human? she has has more skin than most people 600 years old, she looks to be about forty, that is why the word estimate has saved the day, because estimations are allowed to be wrong. ralok 18:06, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

I see your point there, and the quote is a little unhelpful in that respect, but the main point I was driving at was that the ages on the Official Site are not legit, as confirmed by a developer. SpartHawg948 18:11, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

I think Asari are effectively immortal: Aria, for example, is supposed significantly older than 1000 years (see Mass Effect: Retribution). Maybe in the Mass Effect universe nobody really knows if there's a maximum lifespan for Asari simply because hardly any Asari ever survive long enough to find out. Because the chances are SOMETHING will kill them at SOME POINT. I mean, I was only cruising the Galaxy for about 30 hours in total and I must have died at least 10 times. Plus I ran into... let me think... four or five Thresher Maws? In just over a day. Dangerous.


Samara is already a Matriarch, so she has to be over 700 years old, see Asari Biology. Additionally the age difference between Samara and her daughter Morinth is 600 years. See Ardat-Yakshi. So I guess Samara is around 900-1000 years old. Bubi7 11:47, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

Talk to her when the mission is over about being a justicar. ask her about her opinion on justicars. Then investigate the next section. "Romance and the Code." ---> "Completely"
Quote-Unquote: "I am nearly one-thousand years old. I know myelf and my desires./But your curiosity is quite welcome"
she's in the 900-1000 area, and she's a matriarch, not a maiden. I have no source for the following, but I am positive I remember correctly: She has been a justicar for 400 years more or less. She states during investigation into her loyalty mission that she has been chasing her daughter for 400 years more or less and that Morinth is the reason for becoming a justicar, suggesting that around the time morinth was 40 and ran away was about when she started with Morinth being the reason for starting. how old she was when she had Morinth + 40 + 400ish = actual age, to be around 900-1000. You can counter-calulate how old she was with this information, though I doubt it holds much of any importance to any of you...
Actually, I'm pretty (fine, here's your edit, ya happy now?) sure Samara is not a Matriarch, as evidenced by this screenshot: [1] . Just to clarify: her skills now rival an asari Matriarch. Meaning, she's close to being as powerful as one. Meaning, she's not a Martiarch yet. Logical. Also worth pointing out is the fact that various stages of asari life come depending on how often the asari mated. If she mated infrequently during the Matron stage, the Matriartch stage will come later. Says so on this very Wiki. Carrying an Ardat-Yakshi gene can be a turn-off. --Loethlin 01:57, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
First Language. We don't need that here.
Actually you are incorrect. Samara even states she is almost 1000 years old. Play ME2 again and talk to her. 1000 puts here clearly in the realm of an asari Matriarch. That screenshot really proves nothing considering what she actually says, and I'm more will to believe the character, rather than the text in this case. Lancer1289 02:08, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
There is NOTHING in what she says that indicates whether she is or isn't a Matriarch. She just gives you her approximate age. All she says is that she is not a Maiden anymore. Like I said before, This very wiki states the conditions of entering Matron and Maiden stages depending on how often the asari mate. There is no definitive number of years and you shouldn't be assuming. --Loethlin 02:16, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, and one more thing. First, you negate what's on the official site: that she's around 600 human years. I agreed with this one, because of what she says in the game. But now, I gave you a nice proof from the game you deem the only worthy source of canon as false, because of... what, again? Oh, yes. She says she's nearly a 1000. Not mutually exclusive, this age and Matron stage. And perhaps deciding on your sources would be a good idea. Do you trust the game, or not? Are only the character's lines taken as canon, or the whole game? You should decide. Because it can cause all sorts of problems. --Loethlin 02:41, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
Uh, yeah, she says she is no longer a Maiden, so she must be a Matriarch. There is no middle ground. Either she is a Maiden or a Matriarch, and she is not a Maiden.--Legionwrex 02:43, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
Either I missed your sarcasm or you forgot about the Matron stage. --Loethlin 02:49, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
(F*cking edit conflicts)Never mind that edit. I mistaked Maiden with Matron.--Legionwrex 02:51, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
Language, dear boy! Or is asterixing ok? :P --Loethlin 02:53, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah it is.--Legionwrex 02:56, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
Now that's just daft. Or is "daft" a bad word too? --Loethlin 03:00, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
Daft is allowed, all sarcasm aside I didn't actually say anything, you did. This is getting off topic.--Legionwrex 03:04, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
I put on my trollface. All offtopic aside, decide if game is canon or not. A wiki can't be picking things it likes, it needs to be objective. Vide: Deception debacle. I gave you a proof from the game which you deemed the definite source. Uncool, guys. Uncool. --Loethlin 03:12, February 18, 2012 (UTC)

First let me point out several things. We have proof that the ages on the website are not accurate. We know Samara is about 1000 years old from her own dialogue. There are three states to the asari life cycle and we know Samara has passed through two of them, therefore there is only one left. We know that asari are known to live over 1000 years, and we have some evidence to say that is probably the high end of their life cycle. The bottom line here is that we know how old Samara is, and that is she is near 1000. We go off here what she says. And need I say that even using * is extremely discouraged and is extremely borderline as it is. Lancer1289 03:04, February 18, 2012 (UTC)

Samara's mate Edit

We don't know if Samara's mate was an asari or an alien. She never states either way. All we know is that three of her daughters are Ardat-Yakshi.

The "Ardat Yakshi" condition is exclusive to asari-only pairings, so her mate was an asari. -Maskeus 13:17, August 1, 2010 (UTC)
This is true. IIRC, she mentions that she thinks the possibility of having an Ardat-Yakshi is one of the reasons that asari-asari pairings are so stigmatized. SpartHawg948 19:08, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

Samara and the Code Part 2 Edit

OK this have been going on long enough. The Justicar Code DOES NOT forbid romance. Samara actually says that it doesn't as this video demonstrates. Head to 2:30 and Samara says, flat out I might add, that the code doesn't forbid romantic involvement. I do not know why this keeps getting changed to something that isn't canon. What is canon and correct is that Samara rejects Shepard for personal reasons, not because the Code forbids it.

On a side note, what is up with this talk page? Lancer1289 21:11, April 8, 2011 (UTC)

Questionable source for Samara in ME3? Edit

The source for Samara's apparent return in ME3 is questionable. Quoting from website:

Mass Effect characters Mordin and Samara have been confirmed for Mass Effect 3. The reveal came during a presentation of the new game at Microsoft's E3 conference this evening. BioWare used the demo to showcase Kinect support in the upcoming action RPG.

Yet, when I repeatedly watch the ME3 Kinect demo presention during Microsoft's E3 conference and found no mention of Samara at all. Perhaps the website author has confused Samara with Liara? Or am I missing some video demo? — Teugene (Talk) 19:59, June 27, 2011 (UTC)

You've got a point. So my bad, I didn't vet the source carefully enough. I'll remove this info. -- Commdor (Talk) 20:44, June 27, 2011 (UTC)

Asari space Edit

"Justicars rarely leave asari space, but Samara's pursuit of justice has brought her to Illium." - Isn't Illium in asari space? Its article makes it seem like it is. --Tobiasvl 09:10, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

Nope. Quoting straight from the in-game description for Illium: "Officially, Illium is not an asari world; it is colonized and operated by asari corporate interests." This information is also found in the Illium article. It is therefor clear that Illium is a corporate-controlled world existing apart from the various major governments (much like Noveria), despite the (apparently) close ties it maintains with the Asari Republics.

Samara name origin Edit

The IP user was correct, Samara is a hebrew name not arabic. [2]

Who told you that her name was arabic in the first place?--Direct Control 23:06, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

This one says Hebrew and Arabic. So does this one. Arabic. There are also several other sites stating Spanish, Moorish, Russian, Latin, or Old English origins. So, it would appear that Arabic is correct. Hebrew also appears to be correct. SpartHawg948 23:20, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

Worthy of trivia or not? Edit

Most likely not, unless you can provide developer confirmation that the character's name was directly taken from the city. -- Commdor (Talk) 19:18, February 17, 2012 (UTC)

Shouldn't Samara be locked up in the monasteryEdit

In the Ardat-Yakshi monastery, asari who are Ardat-Yakshi or have potential of being an Ardat-Yakshi are forced to go to the monastery -"The main feature is a monastery that houses a large population of asari with active or latent Ardat-Yakshi genes, a disorder that causes the death of anyone who mates with the afflicted asari."-. She has conceived three children, who have all turned out to be Ardat-Yakshi, therefore, Samara has "latent Ardat-Yakshi genes". However, she gets to roam about in the galaxy, even become a justicar. Normally, wouldn't she have to be locked up in the monastery like her daughters, because one can easily leave the code when he 'aids Shepard fight the Collectors'. And even if the code could not be abandoned, why would she have a rapport with Shepard if this meant releasing another Ardat-Yakshi into the universe?

Speculative discussions like this should be taken to the forums. Article talk pages are reserved for discussing the maintenance and organization of articles only. -- Commdor (Talk) 19:49, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

No because Samara is a pureblood and their children have a much much higher chance of being Ardat-Yakshi, even if the mother is not one at all. Read, for God's sake. Chaoswolf75 20:16, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

See Commdor's comment as it is correct. This does not belong here. Lancer1289 23:14, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

Samara Vs Adept Or Vanguard Shepard Edit

Considering That Samara is obviously a Powerful Biotic since She's near her Matriarch Stage. It is Said That Shepard is also more powerful biotic than the average Human. Would Shepard be Equal or Is Samara more powerful because it's natural? If he was outfitted with the L4? What About The L5x or The L5n? Darksider45 (talk) 13:51, March 25, 2013 (UTC) Darksider45

Hey unknown user, could you please sign your comments using four ~. It seems you are correct about the name origins (at least, I can't find any proof that Samara means what the trivia says), so unless someone can get some proof to the contrary within a couple of days, I will delete that trivia. As for the second thing you mentioned, I really don't understand what you are trying to say there. could you be a bit more clear?Randuir (talk) 11:25, December 22, 2015 (UTC)
  1. not permitted. removal of valid information. try reading a few sections above or use google-fu skills - easy mode. took me less than 20 seconds for some more supporting links all pointing to some variant of/on the same concepts.
  2. it's called "multiple IP users". there's this thing called page history, where anyone can see who posted what.

I actually checked google and couldn't find anything, so could you please post some links here, or better yet, add them to the references? And thanks for that second piece of information. I'll remember that for future use. Edit: ah, nevermind, found them. Why don't we add references for claims like this, btw? That would clear up a lot of confusion.Randuir (talk) 13:08, December 22, 2015 (UTC)
