15 (who?)

File Number 6463425-42VAS

Real Name: Velair Aethyta Shepard

Aliases: "Elle"

Species: Asari

Age: 24 years old (Human years)

Marital Status: Single

Relatives: Commander Kaycee Shepard (Father), Liara T'Soni (Mother), Ayrene Shepard (sister), Rinyn Shepard (sister), Syren Shepard (sister), Hannah Shepard (Grandmother), Matriarch Aethyta (Grandmother)

Base of Operations: The Citadel

Place of Birth: New York City

Occupation: Citadel Security Services

Height: 6'1"        Weight: 160 lbs.      Eyes: Green        Skin: Purple

Class: Commando

Weaponry: M-345 Grendel Assault Rifle, M-356 Brimstone Shotgun, M-360 Onyx Hand Cannon (A gift from Commander Bailey on the eve of her induction into C-SEC.)

Biotic Powers: Barrier, Push

Tech Powers: Flare, Chain Lightning, Fog of War

Heavy Melee: Omni-Targe, Taser Punch

Other Powers/Abilities/Tech: Incredible tactical mind, adaptable to almost any situation. A new cutting-edge Ariake Tactical Visor, given by her Uncle Garrus, allows for pinpoint targeting and thermal imaging. 

Notes from Captain Chellick: Never has C-SEC gotten such an eager recruit, and never have we gotten one with a tactical mind to rival that of most Turian generals. Velair has been eager to prove herself since the day she arrived on the Citadel. She is not your average officer, always questioning authority, always taking chances. But at the end of the day, she realizes that you can't always walk in the light to do what is right. That can mean anything from bending the rules to put someone behind bars, or fighting dirty to bring down the bad guys. She really resents me for putting her on easy, simple assignments. But I promised Primarch Vakarian that I would keep his niece safe, to not let her be exposed to the grittier aspects of the Citadel. She is certainly like her father, always finding a way around my orders, without actually disobeying them. In my personal opinion, she has the potential to be one of the greatest tacticians of our time. 

The Commando Class: A warrior capable of changing the course of a battle with their superior tech powers. Fire and Electrical attacks keep the enemy off-balance, allowing the Commando to take them down with a few well-placed shots. The Commando is master of several weapons, but not a full-on soldier. 

Class Abilities:
  • Flare: Emits a ball of incineration tech combined with a flash grenade, burning and blinding the target.
  • Chain Lightning: Sends a stream of electricity that jumps from target to target, incapacitating them or overloading mechanical targets. 
  • Fog of War: Releases a small group of bearings that emit a thick, black smoke, concealing the user and effectively rendering the enemy blind.

Velair Shepard the Commando
Enjoy everyone!!! :D

Oh man, you make me miss Shepard so much (haven't played Mass Effect in a long while now..).
Velair's abilities are awesome. It should be illegal to have such powerful moves (NOT!).
I know I've said this before, but you gotta love Shepard's family. Everyone is female (technically speaking)! lol

I'm getting back into my file, going over the War Assets for inspirations for War Stories.

Elle's quite the soldier :D Wanted her tech abilities to make her quite the formidable opponent :D

Can't help but love the entire extended Shepard family :love: They all bring so much. :love:

She's an Asari Commando? :happybounce:
SaintWalker1806 Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2012
Not really, more along the lines of a new kind of Commando. More like an Alliance Commando (since she works for C-SEC)

I know ^^ but she's an Asari and a Commando. I just find that kind of funny :giggle:

The Shepard girls aren't part of the Asari Gov't. XD
Elle is so much cooler than any normal Asari Commando :D

But think about how confusing that would be if it came up in a conversation XD

"So... She's an Asari... And she's a Commando, but she's not an Asari Commando?" :hmm:

So many people could get confused :rofl:
