Dragon Effect: Kasumi/Zaeed by AndrewRyanArt Dragon Effect: Kasumi/Zaeed by AndrewRyanArt
I picture Zaeed as the leader of a gang of roadside bandits and Kasumi as a master theif who sometimes does the occasional odd job for him since they are old friends. They met years prior when Kasumi was a young upstart thief that tried to steal Zaeedís jewel encrusted broadsword but Zaeed caught her in the act and managed to briefly subdue her, impressed with the young girls spirit he offered her a place in his gang and she stayed with him for awhile before going out on her own to pursue bigger and better heists.

Kasumi- pretty much just took her mass effect outfit and gave it a medieval makeover, she wields dual curved daggers in battle.

Zaeed- also didnít change much aside from removing the sci-fi elements, and removed his artificial eye (at least I think itís artificial in ME). He lost it when he he killed the former gang leader in a duel.

Only two more characters left to go, one will be Joker as Iíve already said and heíll be paired with a surprise partner to conclude the dragon effect series.

Of course Zaeed gets the most badass looking sword of all.:D (Big Grin)

You know what would be nice? Ashley and Jacob. I know you don't like them very much, but it would be nice to see them. It's your choice, though. Maybe female Shepard as well.    Nice drawings by the way. Love, love, love them!

Okay now this is bloody awesome and brilliant! I LOVE IT!

You have a way with drawing people. Great.

KASUMI: So, we're working for Shepard now?
ZAEED: We're not 'working' for him. We're just tagging along until we've repaid out debt to him for sparing our lives.
KASUMI: I warned you that they didn't look like ordinary citizens.
ZAEED: Alright. So I was wrong for once in my f*cking life. Are you going to keep hanging it over my bloody head?
KASUMI: Pretty much.
ZAEED: Great. Just f*cking great.

ZAEED: Bah. F*cking vision is getting bad.
KASUMI: Ya' know, you could just get your eye replaced. I know a guy who sells high quality stuff. He does some work on the side.
ZAEED: Wait, you know him or you 'know' him?
KASUMI: Haha. Real funny.
ZAEED: I try. Anyway, thanks but no thanks. If I got a new eye, that means I'd have to get used to seeing with two all over again. Plus, you said he 'sells' them, which means he probably got them from someone else. No way am I putting another man's eyeball in my f*cking head.
ZAEED: Besides, you have to admit. The hole in my head looks pretty intimidating.
KASUMI: If you say so.

(If Shepard is romancing Miranda and Jack)

ZAEED: So, you aren't throwing yourself at Shepard either?
KASUMI: Love triangles aren't my thing. I'm very possessive of my stuff, and I don't like sharing.
KASUMI: I like my men to be upfront with me. If he likes me, good. If not, oh well.
ZAEED: Simple. I like it.
KASUMI: And besides, Shepard's not really my type, even if he is sorta good looking.
ZAEED: Need someone with a little more experience, I guess, right?
KASUMI: I suppose.
ZAEED: Well, my tent's always open.

(If Shepard is romancing Miranda and Jack)

ZAEED: What exactly does Shepard have that I don't got?
KASUMI: A good reputation, good looks, a nice physique, dozens of women at his feet...
ZAEED: Hey, I might not have the first two, or the last one, but I damn well know I have a good physique.
KASUMI: Oh really.
ZAEED: Damn right. If you're interested, we could always meet in my tent tonight, and examine it.
KASUMI: I'd sooner jump into a sea of darkspawn. No offense.
ZAEED: Ouch.

Nice colours and armour style!

Can you do some more stuff with this Zaeed? It's a really awesome design!
Korithetramp Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
*drools at Zaeed and Kasumis* omg, that is just... gorgeous... 
cantbreath45 Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think he's just blind in his right eye. Awesome concepts though!
mg1342mg Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013
I'm pretty surel it's bionic when they zoom in on him, especially during his loyalty mission.
cantbreath45 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Maybe, but if it was bionic wouldn't he want to be able to see out of it? I'm pretty sure he or others have stated he's half blind.

Xoraan Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013
The most badass DLC characters ever. Seriously, good job, these two don't get enough hype.

I'd love to cosplay this Kasumi.
ZehnWaters Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2013
How did I miss this entry? And I think Zaeed just had a damaged eye in ME.
TolkienKnight Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2013
these are all amazing!
Wrexspwn Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2013
will you do dragon age people in mass effect?

Wish I had that sword!
ClefJ Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
To think, I never thought I'd see Zaeed more badass than he already is! Glad I was proven wrong with this fantastic image! X3

Ahhhh Kasumi is my favourite out of all of these. I REALLY want to wear that outfit! (hmmm... next cosplay? haha)

Dragon Effect from your own mind?
canius Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
holy crap, I think these two are my favorite so far in your Dragon effect series. The colors of Kasumi's outfit (in my opinion) is the perfect combination of brown and tans... Excellent for making one 'disappear' into a crowd and go unseen while still in plain sight.
FellerofWinds Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012  Student General Artist
I know you said you were done but I feel the cast is incomplete without Jacob and Ashley in here somewhere... Still great job so far!
dabac0n Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2012
This could actually make a pretty cool game if it were ever made.
POD7 Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2012
I love these so much! I hope the surprise partner is Dr. Chakwas as a chantry priest
hanzo66 Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2012
I'm assuming that Zaeed still has a weird affection for his weapon that borders on fetishistic. If nothing, it's a pretty cool-looking sword, though I would have thought he'd prefer one that was less ornate.

Still, they're great designs.
3TREY87 Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2012
maybe the next dragon age can take a point or two from you with these concepts love them
ZodiacEclipse Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
These are all so amazing. Really loving this idea and your execution is excellent.
Laboi Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
Will the other Character be ASHLEY
Willy2537 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
AWESOME!!! Next one you should do could be Anderson and Hackett (Alliance Leaders) or The Illusive Man and Kai Leng (wanted to see how they would fit in Dragon Age setting.) and JOKER!!!
REiO-LoV3 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Student Digital Artist
They look fantastic! I love the backstory as well :)

"Rage is one hell of a pain-killing poultice, Warden-Commander."


I also second the idea that Kasumi might as well be hiding more blades up her sleeves - her Assassin's Creed/Mirror's Edge parkour scene in Stolen Memory certainly makes you think she'd be comfy with them =)
KuraraOkami Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012  Student General Artist
Kasumi looks absolutely amazing and Zaeed...a total badass!:D
ZehnWaters Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012
My favourite part was still where you get to punch Zaeed and pull a gun on him.
K-Defender Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012
Kasumi looks awesome.
