Number 4: Bioware
Mass Effect and Dragon Age… how can you not love Bioware? They brought femShep into the world. Ok, they also gave her scary makeup, but still. And Garrus and Tali ♥ And Jacob D: And epic epic Dragon Age. And Alistair D: They definitely write characters you have an opinion about. Which is an awesome thing. Sexy storytelling and freedom of choice put Bioware at number four. Mm yes, they would be higher up on this list if not for Jacob and my inexplicable hatred for EA :)
I know it’s late, but I’m making sounds about this now because it’s awesome and I’ve had time to process all the implications.
Garrus and Thane, Dragon Effect didn’t ref any particular DA characters for these two.
The storyline I’m thinking for Garrus is that turians are a regularly integrated part of society and as with Mass Effect where they make up the bulk of C-sec they often fulfill the role of town guards and in Garrus’ case he’s risen to become a captain in a wealthy trading town, hence his somewhat ostentatious get-up. He’d be a melee/ranged fighter.
For Thane I’d see him as belonging to a small almost forgotten order with the purpose of finding and eliminating wild dragons or wyrms. That’s why he’s wearing a light dragon scale outfit and the glowing stone set into his chestpiece is a gem that embues him with added marksmanship powers.
Next up was going to be Tali/Liara but I really want to do Mordin so I think I’m gonna give him a shot, not sure who will be paired with him yet, might just have it be Tali anyway since I’m sure she’d be a popular choice . I’ll pair Liara with Javik when I get around to it.

Miranda and Jack, didn’t mean to take so long to finish them. Will be much quicker with the next pair. Wrex and Grunt most likely since I need to get some aliens in there.
For Miranda I basically took Morrigan’s look and tweaked it a bit, added cerberus insignia and am imagining cerberus as a kind of rogue apostate organization that Miranda would be involved with.
And Jack’s just a crazy ass elven blood mage. Wasn’t really referencing any particular character for her so kinda just made her mass effect outfit more mage-like. Also I didn’t distort her face like the elves in Dragon Age 2 because I preferred the way they looked in dragon age origins ( I thought Zevran looked terrible with the wide eyes in DA2).
