Edge: Over at the awesome Border House blog, the writers have launched a series called My Commander Shepard. In each post, the writers talk about the Shepards they created, detailing who she is, where she came from, and what makes her tick. Reading the posts made me appreciate how well Shepard works as a game character. She's truly co-created by the script and the players. The games hand us the mantle of a hero – and we decide if our character lives up to it.
Inspired by Border House, I'm going to take a stab at describing my Commander Shepard - the ex-Alliance, almost forgotten heroine who just might save the galaxy. After playing the first Mass Effect and most of the new one, here's what I know about my Shepard.
