Yeah that was my first reaction too. If you bring her along during the anvil of the void mission, caridin remembers her. and then we have her "loyalty mission" in the Deep roads. Hehehe, not to mention Oghrens comments when they find out! Again, great pic. Hope we get to see some golems in inquisition!
You can find out way sooner just by talking to her enough, There's a part where she remarks about the way you put the crystals on her body and how "slimming" they are from that point I know she mentions something about being a female.
Shale looks like a dude in Dragon Age. The whole hilarity of her character is that you're surprised when you find out she's a woman. Not to mention I used a direct reference image from the game for this image.
So the question should be have you even played Dragon Age?
I love how these two looks together, although I'm a bit estranged by Shale's face. Probably it's just me not being used to see a Geth with an actual face. Still I think that giving Shale the usual "lamp-face" with an holographic projection around might be a valid alternative. Just a random thought.
"It speaks? We had no data regarding its knowledge of augmentation drives. It has even installed them in constant vertical patterns. Further data suggests the installation parallels trends in human aesthetic fashion to make one appear taller and thinner, although it knows it is all an optical illusion. Should it attempt to locate and install more drives? Is this unit requesting to 'glitter ear to ear'?"

I always thought that the robot dogs in Mass Effect would look more like dogs since people care about looks as much as its other attributes.
Then there would be advertisements saying like
"We dont make those laaaaaaame Dobermen bots that that one other company creates. We have our very own Mabari robot that is guaranteed to have three times as much speed, agility, strength and intelligence as the Doberman bot does."
