    Summary

    Shepard can hardly be blamed for harboring a deep hatred of the batarians. The attack on Mindoir when she was sixteen, in which her family was killed and the colony devastated by slavers, was undoubtedly the defining moment of her life up to that point; her eventual rescue by an Alliance patrol no doubt cemented her decision to enlist.

         - Alan Simonis, Beyond First Contact: Humanity’s Struggle in a Hostile Galaxy, p. 94

    The temptation for the lazy historian is to draw a straight line from the attack on Mindoir to Shepard’s actions at Torfan, but the fact is that by 2178 Shepard had engaged the batarians on multiple occasions—and always disengaged promptly when ordered to do so. Torfan represented not a loss of control but a calculated statement.

         - Sara Janowski, Sword, Shield, and Hammer: Commander Shepard and the Systems Alliance, p. 90

    Summary

    The Inquisitor chooses to let Leliana take care of the House of Repose's threat on Josephine's life. When Cullen stumbles into the middle of Leliana and Josephine's argument over this, the three of them find themselves becoming entangled, and they're forced to face the facts: that they may be far better people, or far worse ones, than they'd previously imagined.

    Summary

    Amidst chortling laughter, she molds them together, legs and hips and breasts and bellies, raised scars and smooth skin. Beautiful, she thinks, how similar they are. And how different.
