There will be a lot of violence and grotesqueness in this so be forewarned. The setting of this takes place in an alternate universe to the original mass effect, and in this universe thing's are a little different, the races have known of the reapers comeing, as the protheans managed to survive the reapers once, and have warned other races, surviving through cold sleep they unearthed forty-nine thousand, seven hundred years on. Appearing from their cold sleep the protheans set to work on their home planet to restore it to fully functioning order and sent out a message into space, alerting any other sentient races of their location and that they would inform them of what they knew. Due to the threat of total annihilation, interspecies relations have become much more stable, this does not mean that they get along however, most races still have deep seeded hatred but some have learned to look past this for the good of survival. Through advances in cloning, interspecies couples have had the chance to finally have children. Though the process isn't quite perfect it is much better than it used to be, seeing as now the clones don't die within a couple of years but instead live as long as the oldest members of their respective parent races would. However there are still a few bugs in the system such as, a turian/human hybrid having a very sensitive stomach, or being vulnerable to viruses thanks to fluctuating body temperature, meaning that the process isn't perfect but it is manage able, ( and that turian/human would never be able to handle a spicey curry, hehe.) Humanity's march into space much later on has left them with a much shorter time frame to build up their defences agaisnt the reapers and as such have had the protheans working with them almost directly to have them ready in time. The year is 2186AD , the reapers arrive very soon, is there enough time to save everyone ? The setting for the first part of this, is the planet kilum 4, a resort planet heavily defended by the, GDC ( galactic defence coalition) ( for everything you need: http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Mass_Effect_Wiki ) Character sheet.

Name: Markil Torinam Race: Turian/Krogan cross breed. Race benefits: Beign a turian/krogan, mar is resistant to almost all forms of physical damage whilst also being strong and faster than both of the respective races as well as having more stamina than both combined, being short for a krogan but rather tall for a turian, he is the best of both worlds. Being of krogan heritage grandts him multiple organs, as well as the "quad" and accompanying assets, his diet can consist of virtually anything given his internal organs. Cross breed issue: As a turian and krogan cross breed this means that he has both an internal skeleton and an outer exo-skeleton, with this comes the problem that his head hasn't developed any of this exo-skeleton, and as such it is a very vounerable point on his body. Appearance: link, credit to the maker of the pic. Mar stands at 6'10, with well defined phisique shown off and accentuated by the dark red steel like plates that adorn his body, the uncovered skiin of his head beneath is a light red and he has the traditional turian face decoration in white, depicting a skull. though unlike the turains he has three fingers and a thumb. all of which are thick and bulky. around the collar and back of the semi hood his collar muscles make he has dark green slash stripes, and his eyes are a vibrant green which gets darker the further from the pupil it gets. When damages Mar's blood is a green colour, sort of a deep evergreen. other than that his physiology is similar to a turian which has bulked out considerably, he is lacking the severe hump of the krogans but it is distributed in the huge arch on the back of his collar to his head. he is thick nd powerfully built, his legs look closer to ta turians whilst hiarms look more krogan, his body also looks like a happy medium between the two allowing him the best of both worlds as sll his muscles are well fedfined but also compsct with both races explosive strength and long reaching stamina. Personality: Mar is gruff and tough, his anger and other emotions are explosive like most krogan however his turian nature reigns him in from doing anything too extreme. and also gives himmroom to listen to others opinions as well as views however he is not paitent, and doesn't have a very good level of patience with other people. Powers: Fortification. Armor Bonus: +100.00% of maximum shields Tech armour Recharge Time: 12.00 seconds Duration: Lasts until destroyed Shield Strength: +75.00% of base shields Adrenaline rush Time Dilation: +50.00% Damage Bonus: +100.00% Weakness: Mar is weak to biotics, something in his construct dna is very susceptable to biotics and as such he is averst to dealing with biotic users. Weapons: M-96 Mattock M-22 Eviscerator M-358 Talon Biography/history: Mar's parents are a krogan father and a turian mother, they fell in love whilst both working in the GDC on the citadel twenty three years ago, after a sort of whirl wind romance, they decided to have a child through the cloning process so theat their child would be the perfect union of the two of them. Aft erhe was born the pair of them, moved from the sitadel and he was raised on a small colony in deep space where he was picked on a lot for not haveing either of his parents full heritage, although through the mocking he'd developed himself into a very respectable person despite, the hatred for his krogan side everyone showed. Even with his explosive temperment and harsh levels of extreme anger, he has managed to gain himself standing within the ranks of the GDC, right now he stands as a seargent. Going through life with a fifty/fifty gene split of his pearents he's never been fully content with how things have turned out. Always thinking he could have done this or that better than before or done it a differnt way.
