    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
