Dragon Effect- Grunt and Wrex by AndrewRyanArt Dragon Effect- Grunt and Wrex by AndrewRyanArt
Wrex and Grunt Dragon Effect Mercs

Imagining the Krogan as sort of a subsidiary race to the Qunari. Lesser in number and therefore mostly serving as hired mercs instead of having an actual system of government.

Grunt- referenced Sebastian Vaelís armor a bit for Gruntís look, wanted him to come across as more of a good natured young Krogan who is trying to distance himself from the violent nature of his race. Maybe Shepard would run into him while heís out on a soul searching pilgrimage or something.

Wrex- By contrast I wanted Wrex to look like heís totally embracing his badass nature and Iím imaging him as leader of a wondering band of pillaging Krogan mercs before deciding to aid Shepard. (maybe a renegade Shep gets Wrex while a paragon gets Grunt).

and yes I realized I sort of switched their personalities from ME but it just sort of felt right to me for some reason.

Next up will either be Garrus and Thane or Tali and Liara, havenít decided yet.

WREX: It's insulting for me to even be traveling alongside you.
GRUNT: I don't know why you have a problem with me.
WREX: You abandoned everything that was taught to you from birth. You turned your back on everything that makes a Krogan a Krogan.
GRUNT: I still am Krogan. I may not follow the ways of the people any longer, but I am a Krogan. To my very core!
WREX: Ha. Nice to see your anger hasn't subsided. Pity you've forsaken your roots. We could have found you a role that was truly worthy of you.
GRUNT: Yes. Truly a pity.

GRUNT: Do you really think fighting and killing is the only future the Krogan have?
WREX: We are Krogan. We have always used violence to solve the way of things.
GRUNT: Maybe it's time for a change then, don't you think? Things cannot last this way forever.
WREX: Bah! I refuse to let a coward and a deserter lecture me on what it means to be a Krogan.

WREX: You claim there's no future for our people. But what future is there for one who deserts all he knows?
GRUNT: I've deserted no one! I've simply opened my eyes and seen that brute force is not the only way.
WREX: And what is the only one, might I ask?
GRUNT: Peace. We can talk and work out our problems using peace, instead of violence.
GRUNT: On my journey, I've seen dozens of people solve their problems just by sitting down and talking. They used, not their fists, but their words to solve a conflict.
GRUNT: People fear the Krogan because they do not understand us. If we showed them that we are capable of peace, then they will accept us.
WREX: Spoken like a true deserter of the Way.
GRUNT: Why do I bother talking to you?

That's interesting - I'd see Grunt and Wrex's story as reversed. Like Grunt wants to be a real krogan so Renegade Shepherd helps him achieve his full violent potential (for his own benefit). And then Wrex would be the Krogan of redemption who wants to do more with his life and for his own people and Paragon Shepherd helps him achieve this.

I know that they aren't trolls or ogres or any number of fantasy beings but to see them redressed in fantasy armor makes.them pop in my mind as innovative new takes on fantasy characters. It's fantastic.
