During: Loyalty: Thane

Shepard: What sort of trouble has Mouse gotten himself into?

Captain Bailey: Odd jobs for shifty people. Duct rats take whatever’s available to get by—data running, fencing stolen goods, selling illegal VI personalities. Actually, he was selling one of you.

Shepard: Me?

Captain Bailey: Yeah. When you erased a file, it would say, “I delete data like you on the way to real errors.”

Garrus: That’s pretty extreme, Commander.

Shepard: Laugh it up, Garrus.

Captain Bailey: Buggy though. It crashed every half-hour and the error message was about how the galaxy was at stake and you should fix the problem yourself.

Kolyat: All of you, back off! I’ll kill him!

Shepard: No you won’t.

Kolyat: Oh my gods.

Shepard: Hostages only work when your enemy cares if they live.

Thane: Interesting solution.

Thane: I don’t need your help, I want it! The last time I saw my son– They’ve wrapped her body in sea vines, weighted it with stones. He tries to pull from me, calls for her. The hanar lift her off the platform, they sing like bells. “The fire has gone to be kindled anew.” He begs them not to take her away. They let her body slide into the water. He hits me. “Don’t let them! Stop them! Why weren’t you–” It rains. It always rains on Kahje. Warm water pours down his face.

Shepard: I didn’t mean to make you relive that.

Thane: Perfect memory. It is sometimes a burden.
