me, fretting: okay but what happens if the angara as a race are just the jardaan’s consciousness inside their bio-engineered bodies to escape the scourge or whoever made it, but something happened and they’ve repressed or forgotten who they are?
what if the jardaan were never organic beings, but some kind of fully self aware AI collective that wanted to be organic?
and all this is why the angara can ‘reincarnate’, because they’re a floating consciousness drawn to angaran bodies? what happens when they inevitably remember who they are? shit, what happens if jaal’s consciousness is someone important to the jardaan? what if he used to be integral to the species, or the ‘transplant’ program? he’s always talking about feeling things bigger than himself going on on the edges of existence, what if that’s foreshadowing his own personal future involvement? what if his adorable star map projection in his room, the one he made as a kid which he states isn’t accurate, what if that’s foreshadowing? is that how heleus used to look? or how it will look in the near future after some horrible jardaan-flavoured doomsday event? is a romanced jaal going to have to break ryder’s heart by leaving them or dying or otherwise sacrificing himself?
also me: i bet you two limes and a pencil sharpener bioware hasn’t thought this much into it. it’s not that deep and you’re always wrong. stop it.
