Dragon Effect: Garrus and Thane by AndrewRyanArt Dragon Effect: Garrus and Thane by AndrewRyanArt
Garrus and Thane, Dragon Effect didnít ref any particular DA characters for these two.

The storyline Iím 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 Garrusí case heís risen to become a captain of a wealthy trading town, hence his somewhat ostentatious get-up. Heíd be a melee/ranged fighter.

For Thane Iíd see him as belonging to a small almost forgotten order with the purpose of finding and eliminating wild dragons or wyrms. Thatís why heís 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 Iím gonna give him a shot, not sure who will be paired with him yet, might just have it be Tali anyway since Iím sure sheíd be a popular choice . Iíll pair Liara with Javik when I get around to it.

Soo sick. Thane's armor looks more like plant based armor than scale armor though.. I love the idea of Garrus being a Captain of the Guard.

My two favorite characters in one picture!? NO! One page can't take that level of badassery!!
God i love them both so much.

I don't know why, but Garrus reminds me of The Witch King in LOTR or a NazgŻl ^-^

Freaking epic. These are two of my all-time favorite game characters, excellently rendered in a highly creative fashion. :D

THANE: Are you sure about this?
GARRUS: Sure about what?
THANE: Your decision to leave the town guard. Were you not one of their best troops?
GARRUS: The guard captain wants us to ignore the threat of the darkspawn, because he doesn't want to face them himself. He, and all the other guards, would rather live a false peace, leaving the other towns to their fate.
GARRUS: Even after I voiced my concerns, they still refused to listen. Eventually, I just got fed up with all of it, so, here I am.
THANE: Do you regret your choice?
GARRUS: I can do a lot more, traveling out here on the road, facing the Blight head-on, than I can guarding a building in some town, somewhere. No, I don't regret my choice.
THANE: That is a good outlook to have. Naive, but good.

GARRUS: So, from what I understand, you hunt down wyrms?
THANE: Wyrms, dragons, wyverns. Any sort of winged-creature that was harming the peace.
GARRUS: Is this a loner thing, or are there more of you around?
THANE: The order which I belong to is old, and many of the followers have forgotten the teachings, which are ancestors passed down from us.
GARRUS: Teachings?
THANE: Yes. For example, after a wyrm is slain, it is customary to pray and thank both the God of the Hunt, and the God of Forgiveness.
THANE: You pray to the God of the Hunt for the time it took to capture and kill the wyrm. And you pray to the God of Forgiveness, asking her to bestow mercy on you for taking the life of another.
GARRUS: Seems a little... complex.
THANE: It is.

(If Shepard is romancing Garrus)

THANE: You and the commander seem strangely happy lately.
GARRUS: Well, we have each other. There's no reason for us not to be happy.
THANE: True. Such actions remind me of my wife when we first met.
GARRUS: Actions?
THANE: I don't think I have to explain.
THANE: Just make sure she is taken care of.
GARRUS: Of course I will.
THANE: Good. Because it's too late when you can't get it back.
GARRUS: Wait, what?

why couldn't there be banter like this in ME??!
Kunnaki Featured By Owner Edited Jan 16, 2015  Student Writer
That's what I wonder. It always amused me in Dragon Age when you're traveling with your companions, and they suddenly start talking to one another. Don't know why they didn't do that in Mass Effect, but I hope they change that in ME 4.

Have him recruited as a Warden and he has a death sentence...same basic effect, if a longer lifespan. :D

These are amazing. You did a really good job at meshing the two games together. They look like they're supposed to be part of DA. I'm a major Garrus fan-girl, but Thane looks the best out of the two of them.
