char: athena shepard


Another new femShep, and last of the old Shep re-runs! Athena Shepard, paragon, vanguard, will be romancing Thane. Also she has the old N7 armor because I cannot with my love for it. 

So I have a confession: up until Pandora’s re-run (the one with the Ashley facemod) I had only ever played ME on easy mode because I really, really suck at games. :‘c BUT I managed to get through Pandora on normal pretty easily so for Athena I am trying my hand at playing on Veteran! Horizon went about as well as expected, to be honest. That is to say not in the slightest. Fucking scions. 


thejbusition‘s OC Sharing Day seems lonely so I threw together this really quick. Go share your OC’s! It’s a great day to do it! 

I’m replaying the ME trilogy and created these two yesterday so their bios are going to be pretty short. 

First is Adrian “Dre” Shepard. Spacer, Sole Survivor, Soldier, specializing in sniper work. He was born to be a soldier and stays neutral down the line until it concerns keeping squadmates and civilians safe. So he leans Paragon. He doesn’t lose his temper or patience too often but when he does the Council is normally involved. He can’t stand politics. He will eventually romance Miranda.

Second is Athena Shepard. Earthborn, Sole Survivor, Infiltrator, again specializing in sniper work. Athena is not the name her parents gave her. She has no memories of her parents, and until she was 10 went only by Shepard on the streets. To this day, she really only goes by Commander or Shepard. Athena was given to her by the man that kept her and a group of other orphans alive whom they dubbed The Professor because he kept them safe with knowledge and stealth rather than guns and brute force. He knew all kinds of random things and named her after the ancient Greek goddess and Shepard took that name as her first name when she enlisted. She is an utter sweetheart and skews almost entirely Paragon. However, she is extremely adept at keeping Commander and Shepard separate (ie who she is on the battlefield and who she is on the ship, on shore leave, outside of combat). A switch flips and she is the soldier she needs to be, making tough decisions, not allowing them to cloud her focus or judgement and only mourns after she is alone and the mission is completed. She’s going to romance Kaidan throughout.
