(ME3 spoilers, slightly. And ME1 and ME2
But seriously like, your squad gets progressively weirder over time.
Like in ME1:
A turian, a krogan, a quarian, and an asari! On a human vessel! GASP!
Pft, now we’ve got a krogan who’s genetically engineered to beperfect, turian batman, an asari space paladin… and Tali is still about the same just more talented. But you’ve also got a friendly geth platform, a biotic who can blow up space ships, a founder of one of the main mercenary groups in the Terminus systems, and so on.
So really how else can you escalate from that?
With a prothean, your spaceship’s avatar, the shadow broker, more turian batman who’s now friends with the Primarch… yeah.
At this point people probably wouldn’t be surprised if shepard showed up with a Husk companion.
Minor plot related ME3 spoilers (beyond the point where you are Emily)
The founder of a major merc group who survive a shot to the head I might add
Also a space ninja assasian Drell, which given that there are not many and most of them are confined to the Hanar home world, that’s weird on it’s own.
Also heh, I just made the realization that both Grunt and Miranda were both genetically engineered to be perfect (though by different definitions) heh.
Also Tali makes everything so much more fantastic in ME3 particularly if you get her pardoned in ME2 because then Quarian Admiral on your ship who likes the Geth. Yep.
Clearly what we need now is an Elcor.
Or a Rachni.
i’m still waiting for a Vorcha/Batarian merc team who actually want to work with you. or a hanar, zaeed said they were actually tough
dont forget that the turian batman is also like 2 steps away from prince or whatever
