Since Garrus was CSEC, and the Ryders grew up on the Citadel… do you ever think they met?
Like the Ryder twins get into trouble all the time for vandalism or staying out past curfew or other small things…
and one night, someone knocks on the door, and when Alec opens it it’s just grumpy looking Garrus with the twins for the billionth time, and he’s just so fed up.
From the conversations I’ve overheard on Aya and the fact that he’s apparently Evfra’s best soldier, I wouldn’t be surprised if the sweet purple child of the Tempest turned out the be a Resistance heartthrob ;;
A little story I was thinking of while drawing this
I imagine Sara always shows him animals from the milky way like cats and fish. So while on shore leave Jaal would take her to his home planet showing her the animals and the forest. She’s just so excited because all these cool creatures are around and she is just amazing. Since Jaal was raised there he is used to them, so he is just enjoying seeing his human running around all happy and in awe.
