Citadel Assignments I


Some of these assignments are only available once you've attained Spectre status. The ones that are available before that point are best completed once you're a Spectre so you can take advantage of the Charm and Intimidate bonuses the rank provides.

Citadel: Asari Consort

Locate and enter the Consort Chamber in the Presidium. Upon entering, an asari named Nelyna asks if you wish to make an appointment to see the consort. Just as it seems that you're in for a lengthy wait, the consort, Sha'ira, radios Nelyna and asks to meet with the Commander (that's you!). Make your way to the back of the chamber and head up the stairs. Speak to Sha'ira; she asks you to speak to General Septimus, a turian general who can be found in Chora's Den. Agree to help her to add this assignment to your Journal.


Sha'ira

Objective: Speak with Gen. Septimus
Use a Rapid Transit terminal to reach Chora's Den. The general is seated at one of the tables near the back of the club. Speak with him and tell him that Sha'ira sent you. If your Charm or Intimidate talents are well-developed, you can persuade Septimus to see things your way by selecting either the blue 'Straighten up' option on the left side of the conversation wheel or the red 'Get a grip' option. You do not need to persuade Septimus this way to complete the assignment, but you'll receive Paragon or Renegade points by using the persuasion options.


General Septimus

Objective: Speak with Sha'ira
Once you have set Septimus straight, he presents you with an opportunity to earn some extra credits. Agree, if you're interested, to add the 'Citadel: Xeltan's Complaint' assignment to your Journal. Return to the Consort Chambers in the Presidium and let Sha'ira know that you have spoken with General Septimus. You receive XP, credits and words of wisdom from Sha'ira as reward. Selecting the 'That's it?' option yields some Renegade points as well, while accepting words alone gives Paragon points.

Citadel: Xeltan's Complaint

This assignment is added to your Journal if you accept General Septimus' offer while speaking to him during the 'Citadel: Asari Consort' assignment. The General wants you to see an elcor named Xeltan and show him evidence that the rumours about Sha'ira revealing his secret are false.

Objective: Speak to Xeltan
Xeltan can be found at the elcor embassy, which is located in the Presidium. Search for the 'Volus and Elcor Office' text on the Presidium map and set a Destination flag there. Speak to Xeltan once you have reached the embassy and present the evidence to him. Xeltan thanks you for easing his fears. You receive credits and XP as reward.


Xeltan

Citadel: Doctor Michel

Objective: Talk to Doctor Michel
This assignment becomes available after Tali has been rescued during the main storyline. After reaching that point, talk to Doctor Michel at the Med Clinic in the Upper Wards. Dr. Michel is being blackmailed; the people doing so demand supplies from her, threatening to go public with what they know if she fails to cooperate. Agree to help Michel and she asks you to talk to a merchant named Morlan in the Lower Wards market.


Dr. Michel

Morlan

Objective: Talk to Morlan
Travel to the Lower Wards market and locate a salarian merchant named Morlan. Select 'I'm here about Dr. Michel' from the left side of the conversation wheel. Before Morlan can say anything of use, a krogan named Banes—the one blackmailing Dr. Miche—appears. If your Charm or Intimidate talent is developed enough, you can persuade Banes to leave Michel alone by selecting the blue 'You should reconsider' option or the red 'Talk and you're dead!' option.


Banes

Conversation Wheel

Charming Banes nets you some Paragon points for completing the assignment, while intimidating him yields Renegade points. If you can't persuade Banes, you must fight and kill him. Killing him completes the assignment too, but you won't receive any morality points this way.

Objective: Talk to Doctor Michel
Return to Dr. Michel at the Med Clinic and inform her that Banes won't be bothering her any more. As thanks, Michel offers to give you discounts on supplies purchased from her. Ask her more about Banes; there isn't much she can tell you, but one of your squad members will suggest asking Captain Anderson about him.

Citadel: Homecoming

This assignment can be activated after Tali has been rescued during the main storyline. Locate and speak with a man named Samesh Bhatia; he can be found in the Presidium, near the asari Embassy Receptionist. You can reach Samesh's location quickly by traveling to 'Embassies' under 'Presidium Locations' on a Rapid Transit terminal's choice wheel.  By speaking with Samesh, you learn that the body of his wife—a marine who died on Eden Prime—is being held by the Alliance without explanation. Samesh asks that you speak with the diplomat handling the situation.


Samesh Bhatia

Clerk Bosker

Objective: Talk with Diplomat
Clerk Bosker can be found in the Embassy Lounge which can be reached by heading up the stairs across from Samesh's location. Speak to Bosker and ask him about Samesh's situation. He tells you that Serviceman Bhatia's body is being held due to the strange wounds left on her body because these wounds could help the Alliance further their research. If you have developed Shepard's Charm or Intimidate talent, a blue 'This isn't right' option and/or a red 'I'm releasing the body' option is selectable. Selecting either convinces Bosker to release the body. Once the diplomat has agreed to release the body, you'll receive Paragon or Renegade points depending on how you chose to convince him.


Conversation Wheel

Alternatively you could choose not to select either of the persuasion options when speaking to Bosker and instead select one of the options on the right side of the wheel. This allows you to explain the situation to Samesh and instead convince him to let the Alliance keep his wife's body. Doing this doesn't change anything; you are still given XP, as well as Paragon or Renegade points depending on how you convince Samesh to drop the issue..

Objective: Inform Mr. Bhatia
Return to Samesh with the status report to receive XP and complete the assignment.

Citadel: Jahleed's Fears

Objective: Speak with Jahleed
Speak to the volus named Jahleed at the large C-Sec office in the Security section of the Citadel. Jahleed believes that a colleague of his is trying to kill him. Agree to help and Jahleed tells you of his previous plans to meet this colleague in the markets area of the Lower Wards. His colleague turns out to be Chorban, a salarian whom you are already familiar with if you accepted his keeper scanning assignment.


Jahleed

Objective: Speak to Chorban
Travel to the Markets using a Rapid Transit terminal and head down the stairs nearby to reach the lower markets. You'll find Chorban there, surrounded by several armed salarians. Speak to Chorban and demand the truth. Chorban tells his friends to stand down, and then explains that Jahleed has deceived you. After the conversation, the assignment title changes to 'Citadel: Jahleed's Secret.'


Chorban

Objective: Talk to Jahleed
Head back to C-Sec and confront Jahleed. Tell Jahleed that you are actually helping Chorban scan the keepers (if you accepted Chorban's assignment prior to speaking with Jahleed); this will convince Jahleed to cooperate with Chorban once again. The assignment name then changes to 'Citadel: Jahleed and Chorban,' and you receive credits and XP for completing the assignment. If you have yet to complete Chorban's keeper scanning assignment, you can convince Jahleed to stop scanning the keepers illegally by using Charm or Intimidate. Convincing Jahleed to stop scanning the keepers yields Paragon or Renegade points and completes both Jahleed and Chorban's assignments. 

Citadel: Presidium Prophet

In the Presidium area of the Citadel, search for a hanar and a turian C-Sec officer outside of the Wards Access corridor entrance. By speaking to the C-Sec officer, you learn that the Preaching Hanar is breaking the law, as it doesn't have a permit to preach. The hanar refuses to purchase the evangelical permit required, and continues to preach in the Presidium without one.

Objective: Resolve the Dispute
There are multiple ways to solve this issue. If you are a low level and have yet to develop your Charm or Intimidate talents, the best way to complete this assignment is to simply buy the hanar an evangelical permit. The permit only costs 150 credits, and credits aren't too hard to come by in Mass Effect. By buying the hanar the permit yourself, however, you will not earn any Paragon or Renegade morality points for completing the assignment.


Hanar and C-Sec Officer

If you are able to use the blue Charm option or the red Intimidate option on the left side of the conversation wheel, you can convince the officer or hanar to leave using Charm or Intimidate. Paragon points are given for charming the hanar or officer, and Renegade points are given for intimidating either one.

Objective: Inform the Hanar/C-Sec Officer
After convincing either the hanar or C-Sec Officer to stand down, speak to the other to receive an XP reward and complete the assignment.

Citadel: Reporter's Request

This assignment is triggered when you speak to a human reporter named Emily Wong in the Upper Wards area (near the stairs that go up to the "Citadel: Flux and Wards Access' map). This assignment can be added to your Journal without speaking to Emily Wong by picking up the Optical Storage Device (OSD) in Fist's office after he has been bested during the 'Citadel: Expose Saren' mission.


Fists' OSD

Emily Wong

Objective: Look for Information
If you don't have the evidence already, return to Fist's office in the Chora's Den club  and pick up the OSD that has been left on the ground. If you have yet to defeat Fist, work on the 'Citadel: Expose Saren' mission instead, as you will come across the evidence needed to complete this assignment by doing so.

Objective: Deliver the OSD
When you have Fist's OSD, speak to Emily Wong and share it with her. She hands over credits as thanks.

Citadel: Rita's Sister

Objective: Speak to Rita
Travel to the Flux club in the Upper Wards and speak to Rita near the bar counter. Select 'Problems?' from the conversation wheel and work your way through the dialogue tree. You learn that Rita's sister, Jenna, is currently working undercover for C-Sec as a waitress at the Chora's Den club in the Lower Wards.  Rita is concerned that this job is too dangerous for Jenna but has been unable to convince her to give it up. Agree to help Rita to activate the assignment.


Rita

Objective: Talk to Jenna
Use a Rapid Transit terminal to reach Chora's Den, head to the other end of the walkway and enter the club. Jenna can be found behind the counter in the middle of Chora's Den. By speaking to Jenna, it becomes evident that you won't be able to convince her to give up the job.


Jenna

Chellick

Objective: Return to Rita
Attempt to leave Chora's Den and you will bump into a mysterious turian named Chellick. He tells you to meet him at C-Sec Academy if you wish to help Jenna.

Objective: Talk to Chellick
Travel to C-Sec Academy. Chellick can be found in the bottom-left C-Sec Office (as it appears on the map). Speak with 'Detective' Chellick; work your way through the dialogue tree and he will eventually ask you to help him. If you wish to earn Paragon or Renegade points, you can convince Chellick to let Jenna go by selecting the blue 'You don't need her' option or the red 'Pathetic' option. These options will only appear if your Charm or Intimidate talents are developed enough. If the two persuasion options are not available, then you'll just have to select one of the options on the right side of the conversation wheel.


Chellick's Office

With Jenna safe, the name of this assignment changes to 'Citadel: Rita's Sister is Safe.' If you persuaded Chellick, you can choose to help him or pass and end this assignment here and now. Choosing to help him adds a new objective to the assignment. Chellick wants you to pick up a weapon shipment from an arms dealer named Jax. The meeting will take place in the Lower Wards market.

Objective: Make the Pickup
Get to the Lower Wards market to meet Jax the krogan arms dealer. Chellick has asked that you do not cause any trouble, so it would be best to simply give the credits to Jax once he has handed over the weapons shipment. Choosing to arrest Jax or refusing to pay sets him off, forcing you to fight the krogan and turian that accompany him. Killing Jax nets you some Renegade points, so if you are following the Paragon path simply carry out the pickup as instructed.


Jax

Objective: Return the Shipment to Chellick
Talk to Chellick again back in his office at the C-Sec Academy and give him the Weapons Shipment. As a reward you're given XP, credits, some Omni-gel, and Paragon points or Renegade points depending on how you dealt with Jax.

Citadel: Scan the Keepers

Speak to Chorban, a salarian scientist who can be found in the Citadel Tower area standing next to a keeper just below the Council Chamber. Ask him about his interest in the keepers and then agree to help study them. You are given a Scanner that can be used to scan any keeper that you come across. Chorban will send you a small amount of credits each time one is scanned.


Chorban

Keeper

Objective: Scan the Keepers
There are 21 keepers to be found in the Citadel:

Citadel Tower
- The keeper that Chorban was busy scanning.
- Near some benches in the circular, eastern-most area of the tower.
- At the top of the walkway that runs along the western side of the tower.
- In the southwestern-most corner of the map.

Citadel Presidium
- Next to the window in the Volus and Elcor Office.
- Through the door in the top-left corner of the Embassy Lounge.
- From the receptionist desk in the Embassy Lounge, turn right and head up the stairs there. Go through the doorway and then through the second, northeastern doorway. The keeper is at the back of this room, just beyond the elcor.
- Just outside of the Consort Chambers in the Financial District.
- Head up the stairs at the back of the Emporium and turn left.
- In the small eastern area next to the Emporium.
- Outside of the Wards Access elevator.
- Across from the Citadel Tower elevator and next to the Avina terminal.

Upper Wards
- Near the eastern end of the Alleyway.
- At the dead-end east of the Med Clinic, near the Rapid Transit terminal.
- In the Upper Markets, near the merchant Expat's store.

Lower Wards
- Outside of the Wards C-Sec Academy entrance. Go down the stairs marked 'To C-Sec Academy' on the Upper Wards map to reach this location.

Citadel Security (C-Sec)
- In the bottom-left corner of the Requisition Office.
- At the northern end of the Traffic Control area.

Docking Bay
- On the platform to the right of the barrier at the south end of the Docking Bay.

Flux and Wards Access
- At the back of the Flux Casino.
- Take the elevator marked 'To the Presidium' from the Upper Wards. When the elevator reaches its destination, turn left, move down the hallway and turn right as soon as you can. A keeper can be found in this small area.

Use the in-game map to reach the locations described above. Once you have scanned every keeper in the Citadel, you receive a large amount of XP and credits.

Citadel: Schells the Gambler

Objective: Speak to Schells
This assignment becomes available once after completing the 'Citadel: Rita's Sister' optional assignment. With the aforementioned assignment complete, travel to the Flux to trigger a small cutscene in which a salarian named Schells is forcefully ejected from the club. Speak with Schells and ask him about the incident. He explains that he is currently developing a cheating system, and was only using the quasar gambling machines in the Flux Casino to gather data. Doran, the owner of the Flux, believed that Schells was actually cheating and had him thrown out. When you agree to help Schells, he hands over the scanner and sets you to task scanning the gambling machines.


Schells

Objective: Scan the Machines
You can end this assignment quickly by first speaking to Doran—who can be found in the northwest corner of the Flux Casino—and then selecting the 'Give him Schells' tool' option from the wheel. Doran thanks you for handing it over and rewards you with some credits. Afterwards, return to Schells and inform him that you have given away his scanner.


Doran

If you want to gather the data for Schells, however, start by playing the High Stakes orLow Stakes Quasar machines in the Flux Casion. It is easier to come away with positive winnings by using the Low Stakes Quasar machines, so start with those. Once you have won at least five times ('winning' meaning you won more money than you bet), return to Schells. Hand over the scanner to complete the assignment.


Quasar Machine

Quasar

Citadel: Signal Tracking

Examine the 'Suspicious Gambling Machine' at the back of the Flux Casino (then machine next to the keeper). It turns out that a signal is being used to transfer money from the gambling machines to a private account. By tracing the system, you can discover where the money is going and why.


Suspicious Machine

Objective: Track the Signal
The signal is coming from the Wards Access corridor. Use a Rapid Transit terminal to travel to the signal's location, located under 'Presidium Locations' on the option wheel. Go down the stairs and follow this corridor until you reach an elevator. Ride this elevator down to the Flux and Wards Access map. Look to your radar and follow the exclamation mark to find the Signal Source in the northwestern corner of a large room. The signal bounces off of a relay when investigated


Wards Access Signal

Objective: Follow Signal to the Presidium
The new signal points to a terminal in the Financial District of the Presidium. Take the elevator from Wards Access back to the Presidium. The signal is coming from within the Bank, which is right next to the Emporium. Investigate the Source Signal on the terminal behind Barla Von the volus. The second signal also bounces off of a relay.


Presidium Signal

Objective: Continue Tracking
The final signal is located in one of the back rooms of the Emporium, which is conveniently located right next to the Bank. Head up the stairs at the back of the Emporium and turn right. Before you investigate the final Signal Source, it would be a good idea to save your game. An AI is discovered to have been transferring the money from the casino and promptly threatens to blow up Shepard and crew.


AI

Override

Work your way through the dialogue tree and eventually a meter will appear in the bottom-right corner of the screen. This meter displays the machine's progress in saving the remaining credits, while the meter that comes after it displays its self-destruct progress. You must enter the override code before the machine self-destructs and wipes out Shepard and allies. Attempting to leave the room is an automatic game over, so stay put. You are provided with quite a bit of time to figure out the code, as the machine needs to transfer the remaining funds first and only then will it start the self-destruct process. It is possible that the override code is random, but if it is fixed, this sequence will work: Y, X, Y, A, X, A, A.

If you fail to enter the correct sequence in time, simply reload your save game and try again. Successfully overriding the self-destruct sequences completes the assignment and earns you XP.
Citadel: The Fan

Speak to a male human named Conrad Verner to activate this assignment. He can be found at the top of the stairs in the Upper Wards market that lead down to the markets in the Lower Wards. Conrad is a fan of the Commander and asks for an autograph. If you agree to sign an autograph, the 'Citadel: The Fan' assignment is added to your Journal. You can't  proceed any further until you complete one of the storyline missions.


Conrad Verner

Objective: Conrad Verner
Return to the Conrad's location and speak with him again once you have completed at least one of the main storyline missions (Therum, Feros or Noveria). This time Conrad wants to take a picture of you. Agree to let him take your picture or don't, either way you'll still have a fan in Conrad Verner.

After completing at least two of the main storyline missions (Therum, Feros or Noveria), return to the Citadel and speak to Conrad Verner at the same location. This time around, Conrad has an idea that he wants to run by you. Conrad wants to become a Spectre, and asks you to sign him on as humanity's second. You can let Conrad down easy using the blue Charm option, reminding him of his family back home, or you can scare him away using the red Intimidate option. Convincing Conrad to leave you alone using Charm earns you Paragon points, while convincing him with Intimidate yields Renegade points.

Unusual Readings/UNC: Distress Call

Successfully decrypt the Computer Console in Udina's Presidium office to add this assignment to your Journal.


Computer Console

Objective: Investigate System
Use the Galaxy Map to investigate Metgos, which is located in the Hydra System of the Argos Rho cluster. The Normandy receives a garbled transmission which is then interpreted as a distress call. If this assignment was triggered at the Citadel, the assignment name changes to 'UNC: Distress Call.'

Objective: Investigate Distress Call
Select two squad members and land on Metgos. Open up your map and locate the 'Transponder Signal' (marked by an Anomaly symbol) and place a Destination flag near its location.  Metgos' environment is a Level 2 Hazard, meaning you can only remain outside of the Mako's protective interior for a short period of time. Shepard will start to take damage and eventually die from exposure if the bar in the bottom-right corner of the screen fills up. If you must exit the Mako, be sure to park the vehicle right next to your reason for exiting so you hop back in quickly once you're finished.

When you reach the Transponder Signal, get ready, because the distress call was actually a geth trap! The Mako is immediately surrounded by rocket-equipped geth, so quickly drive away from the mass of geth to avoid getting hit from multiple directions. Use the Mako's weaponry to eliminate each geth; use its machine gun to eliminate the rocket drones and troops and the cannon to destroy the armatures. Make sure that there's a fair bit of distance between yourself and an armature before you try to take one on, as this will make it easier to avoid the armature's projectiles, which  are severely damaging to the Mako. This assignment is complete once the last geth has been destroyed.


Geth Trap

Geth Armature

UNC: Hostage

This assignment is added to your Journal once you hear a news report about fanatical biotics while riding one of the elevators in the Citadel. The report occurs randomly, so ride an elevator until the news report plays.

Objective: Board Freighter
Travel to the Farinata system of the Hades Gamma cluster and board the MSV Ontario.  The main area of the freighter is packed with biotic terrorists. You are given three minutes to rescue the hostage once one of the terrorists spots you. There are many hazards in the area, and the terrorists' biotic powers can set them off and make short work of your team if you aren't careful. For this reason, it is best to fallback to the hallway you used to enter this area and allow the biotics to come to you. Tap down on the D-Pad to prevent your squadmates from charging to their deaths, then hang back and pick off the biotics as they approach.


Terrorists

When all of the terrorists have fallen, make your way to the back of the freighter, enter the hallway and go through the first door on the left. Inside you'll find Chairman Burns being held by the leader of the terrorist group. If Shepard's Charm or Intimidate talents are developed enough, the blue 'You need Burns!' and/or the red 'Don't be stupid' persuasion options will appear on the conversation wheel. Without Charm or Intimidate, you'll have to kill the terrorists to save the chairman. Either fight and kill the leader to save Burns and complete the mission, or persuade him to release Burns using Charm or Intimidate to complete the mission and earn Paragon or Renegade points.


Hostage

Conversation Wheel

UNC: Hostile Takeover

Locate and speak to Helena Blake in the Presidium to activate this assignment. Helena wants you to take out two crimelords for her. You can accept her proposal outright, or you can follow the Paragon path and refuse to get involved in the gang war. Turning her down nets you Paragon points, while accepting the assignment right away earns you Renegade points. Even if you reject the offer, Helena gives you the coordinates to the criminals' bases, as she knows putting a stop to criminal operations is too much for your righteous self to resist.


Helena Blake

One of the two crimelords is located in the Han system of the Gemini Sigma cluster and the other in the Dis system of the Hades Gamma cluster. The two targets can be eliminated in any order.

Objective: Eliminate Crimelords (Gemini Sigma, Han, Mavigon)
Travel to the Han system in the Gemini Sigma cluster and land on Mavigon. The environment of this planet is a Level 2 Hazard, so stay close to the Mako if you must step out of the vehicle. Open up your map and locate the Syndicate Hideout in the southeastern quarter and place a Destination flag nearby. The hideout sits atop a small hill and is surrounded by heavy turrets. While the Mako can move across most terrain, this particular hill is quite steep. It is easiest to scale from its south side; maneuver the Mako over the rockier terrain for traction and slowly climb up to the hideout.


Hideout Location

Syndicate Hideout

Use the Mako's cannon and machine gun to destroy the three turrets that surround the base. Once the turrets have been destroyed, park the Mako next to the visible Entrance Console, exit the vehicle and enter the hideout. Move through the hallway and stand before the door to the hideout's main room. There are explosive containment cells scattered throughout the room, so don't just charge in.

Get your enemy's attention and then quickly return to the entrance way and pick the mercenaries off as they approach.  Retreat to the preceding hallway if you're being overwhelmed. Use all damaging abilities (ex., Overload, Sabotage, Throw, Warp, Assassination, etc.) available to you when you encounter the crime boss to take him out as quickly as possible.


Mercenary

Crime Boss

Sweep the two rooms at the back of the hideout once the crime boss and mercenaries have been defeated and then return to the Normandy.

Objective: Finish Crimelords (Hades Gamma , Dis, Klensal)
The second crime boss (if you've been following along) can be found on Klensal in the Dis system of the Hades Gamma cluster. The Syndicate Hideout is southwest of the Mako's drop point, so travel in that direction until a POI appears on the radar. Wipe out the mercenaries surrounding the area, exit the Mako and enter the hideout. The hideout's main area is, of course, packed with mercenaries and snipers. Again, it would be best to hang back at the entrance and let the mercenaries come to you rather than you charging in, guns blazing. Get one of the mercenary's attention—by shooting him, using an offensive ability, or shooting an explosive cell—and the rest of them (save for the snipers and crime boss) should follow.


Klensal Hideout

The crime boss will likely remain at the back of the hideout, meaning you'll have to move up to get him. Use all of your squad's abilities  (ex., Overload, Sabotage, Warp, Lift, Assassination, etc.) when you spot him. Duck behind one of the crates in the area if you're taking too much damage from him and use Shield Boost or a Medi-gel to restore your shields and/or health. Once the crime boss has been dealt with, enter the eastern room of the hideout and Decrypt all of the lockers within. Leave the hideout and return to the Normandy when you're ready to go.


Crime Boss

Objective: Meet Helena Blake
Travel to the Fortuna system in the Horse Head Nebula once the two crime bosses have been defeated. Land on Amaranthine. Helena can be found at the Engineering Outpost, which is south of the Mako's drop point, so travel in that direction until you reach the outpost. Enter the outpost to find none other than Helena Blake waiting for you inside.


Engineering Outpost

Helena Blake

You can arrest Helena or leave her alone by selecting one of the options on the right side of the conversation wheel. If Shepard's Charm or Intimidate talent is developed enough, the blue 'Walk away' option and/or the red 'Disband the group' option will appear on the left side of the wheel. Charming or intimidating Helena into disbanding the gang yields Paragon or Renegade points respectively. You're in for a fight if you try to make an arrest; you'll be forced to fight Helena and the mercenaries in the facility, and you won't receive any morality points afterwards.


Conversation Wheel

Strange Transmission/UNC: Major Kyle

Successfully decrypt the Computer Console in the C-Sec HQ area of the Presidium. The Computer Console is on a table near Executor Pallin's desk.


Computer Console

Objective: Find the Commune
The biotic commune is located on Presrop, a moon that orbits the planet of Klendagon. Travel to the Century system in the Hawking Eta cluster to get started. Upon reaching the Century system, the Normandy receives a transmission from Admiral Hackett. He explains that the commune is led by former Alliance officer Major Kyle. Two Alliance officers were sent to the commune to meet with Kyle, but have yet to return. The Alliance has reason to believe that Major Kyle has gone mad and that his biotic commune is a cult, as he is now known as 'Father' Kyle. The name of this assignment changes to 'UNC: Major Kyle' if it was first triggered at the Citadel.

Objective: Investigate Major Kyle's Compound
Land on Presrop and open up your map. Look to the southwestern quarter of the map for a POI marked as 'Biotic Compound' and set a Destination flag next to this location. Drive to the compound and exit the Mako once you've arrived. Approach the doorway and activate the Entrance Console.


Biotic Compound

Building Entrance

There are two ways to get into the compound: Select the 'You can't keep me out!' option to forcefully enter, or select 'I have to see Major Kyle' to handle things peacefully. The peaceful approach can only be taken if Shepard's Charm or Intimidate talents are developed enough. If Shepard's persuasion skills are high enough, a blue 'He needs my help' and/or a red 'He'll get you all killed!' option will appear on the left side of the conversation wheel. If not, you'll just have to force your way in. Selecting a persuasion option allows you to enter the building peacefully and earns you Paragon or Renegade points, while the 'You can't keep me out!' option forces you to fight the biotics inside.


Conversation Wheel

Objective: Talk to the Major
If you have been permitted entrance, you can immediately proceed to the Biotic Compound; its entrance is east of the large building. However it would be a good idea to enter the large building either way, since equipment and upgrades can be found within. The biotic cultists inside won't attack you if you persuaded the doorman to let you in.  If you had to force your way into the building, you'll have to fight your way through the biotic cultists to reach the Control Room at the back of the building. A switch in the Control Room unlocks the entrance to the Biotic Compound outside, allowing you to enter and confront the Major.


Control Room

Compound Entrance

Major Kyle is in the southwestern room of the compound. There are biotic cultists inside the compound, so you'll have to fight them too if you had to gun your way to the Control Room in the first building. Speak to the Major and ask about the investigators. Major Kyle explains that they tried to take him away from the compound, so they had to be killed. Inquire further until the blue 'You can't help them now' and/or the red 'Surrender or they all die!' persuasion option appears. If any of the biotic cultists had to be killed to reach Kyle, he won't talk to you and therefore must be killed. Persuading Kyle to surrender using Charm or Intimidate earns you Paragon or Renegade points.


Major Kyle

Objective: Return to the Normandy
When Kyle has surrendered or has been killed, leave the compound, enter the Mako and return to the Normandy. Back aboard the Normandy, access the Galaxy Map to receive a transmission from Admiral Hackett. Mission complete!

UNC: Missing Marines

After attaining Spectre status, travel to the Citadel Tower and locate Rear Admiral Kahoku. Kahoku can be found in the southeastern corner of the large area just outside of the Council Chamber. Speak with Kahoku and select 'Problems' from the conversation wheel. Kahoku tells you about his missing recon team and asks you to help find them. Agree to help Kahoku to add this assignment to your Journal.


Kahoku

Objective: Find Recon Team
Travel to the Sparta System in the Artemis Tau cluster and land on Edolus.

Objective: Distress Call
The Distress Signal is due north of the Mako's drop point. When you are near the signal, a horrifying thresher maw emerges from the earth. The thresher maw is deadly, but luckily you have the Mako's weaponry at your disposal. Use the Mako's cannon to damage the worm while it is stationary and the machine gun while the cannon charges for another use. The beast will launches projectiles while stationary; the Mako can become severely damaged if enough of these projectiles hit it, so try your best to dodge them.


Distress Signal

Thresher Maw

The thresher maw may also burrow into the ground and attempt to come back up under your vehicle. The Mako can only take a couple of hits from this attack, so drive far away when the worm burrows, and head back as soon as you see it emerge. When the thresher maw falls, exit the Mako and examine one of the corpses around the signal site.


Dead Marine

Objective: Speak to Kahoku
Return to the Citadel Tower and speak with Rear Admiral Kahoku. Tell Kahoku of his team's fate to complete the assignment.

UNC: Missing Survey Team

This assignment is added to your Journal once you hear a news report about a missing survey team in the Hades Gamma cluster while riding one of the elevators in the Citadel. The report occurs randomly, so ride an elevator until the news report plays.

Objective: Find Missing Researchers
Travel to the Antaeus System in the Hades Gamma Cluster to get started. Land on Trebin and take a look at your map. Your destination is the Research Base POI. The base is north of the Mako's drop point, so travel north until a POI icon appears on the radar. Quickly scan the Research Base for signs of life. Finding nothing, step out of the Mako and open all of the containers within the shelters to gain some items. By examining the Computer Console that is in the trailer on the right, you learn that the research team unearthed something in the dig site. The Excavation Site is just a short ways north of this camp.


Research Base

Computer Console

Objective: Explore Excavation Site
Head north from the Research Camp, exit the Mako and take the ramp up to the Excavation Site's entrance. Enter the dig site and step into its main area. Inside you'll find plenty of husks that will immediately charge towards you. Remain at the start of the area and wait until the group of husks reaches the Containment Cell that is just beyond the first two crates. When the husks reach the explosive, use a gun, biotic, or tech ability to set the explosive off. If you don't detonate the cell, the husks' electricity likely will, so keep your distance. Stand back and finish off those remaining, retreating if necessary. Don't let them get too close to you, as their electric attacks can cause some serious damage to you and your allies.


Husks

Containment Cell

Once the first batch of husks has been dealt with, move towards the back of the mining tunnel and prepare to face the next group. The husks come charging through one of the two doorways there; take note of the conveniently placed explosive next to the door. As the husks enter the main area, hit the cell to weaken them, then stand back and use a gun to finish them off. It's mission complete when the last husk falls. Explore the two rooms at the back of the dig site before returning to the Mako.

UNC: Privateers

Travel to the Citadel Tower and look for a man named Garoth. He is at the top of the steps just beyond the elevator that travels to the Presidium. Ask him about his problem and he tells you that his brother has gone missing. Garoth has reason to worry, as his brother's ship was last seen in the Strenuus System and may have been attacked by privateers.


Garoth

Objective: Go to the Strenuus System
Travel to the Strennus System in the Horse Head Nebula. Place the cursor on planet Xawin and then move the cursor to the left until you discover 'Unknown.' Scan Unknown to reveal the MSV Majesty. Scan the MSV Majesty; you can now land on Xawin.

Objective: Go to Xawin
Xawin's environment is a Level 1 Hazard, so avoid moving far from the Mako if possible. Open your map and place a Destination flag next to the Mercenary Camp located northwest of the Mako's drop point. The Mercenary Camp is heavily guarded; four heavy turrets surround it, and a few mercenary snipers are positioned at the frontlines.


Mercenary Camp

Heavy Turret

Fire from the four turrets is the greatest threat here, however the Mako's cannon can make short work of one while its shields are down. Circle around the base and blast the turrets with cannon fire, using the machine gun while the cannon recharges. Kill the snipers once all four cannons have been destroyed. With the mercenaries dead and the turrets destroyed, park in front of the building, exit the vehicle, and enter the mercenary stronghold.

The base is absolutely packed with mercenaries. You'll want to be especially careful since there's a couple of krogan among them. The area is littered with explosive cells, so running in with guns blazing probably isn't the best way to go. If Shepard is trained with a Sniper Rifle, use it pick off enemies that are visible through the door, otherwise enter the main area of the base to lure the close-combat mercenaries back through the doorway. The krogan are the biggest threat, so use all of the squad's tech and biotic abilities to lower their shields (Overload) or weaken them (ex., Throw, Warp, Sabotage, Assassination, etc.). Afterwards enter the main area and remove the snipers that remain.


Mercenaries

When the base is clear, proceed through the doorway in the northeastern corner of the base and head up the stairs. Enter the room at the end of the walkway to find Captain Willem's corpse. Search the body and remove the Datapad it holds. Open the Weapon Locker, scan the Computer Console and use the Aid Station to replenish your Medi-gel supply before leaving the room.


Willem

Objective: Talk to Garoth
Return to the Citadel Tower and deliver the bad news to Garoth. He thanks you for providing him with closure and departs to make funeral arrangements.

Citadel Assignments II


These assignments are available once you have completed the mission on Therum (the 'Find Liara T'Soni' mission), Feros, or Noveria.

UNC: Asari Diplomacy

Sometime after completing the mission on Therum, Feros, or Noveria, the Normandy will receive a transmission from an asari named Nassana Dantius. Nassana is an asari ambassador working at the Citadel. It isn't clear what she wants, but she does ask to meet with you in person.

Objective: Meet with Nassana
Locate and speak with Nassana in the Embassy Lounge on the Presidium level of the Citadel. She tells you that her sister, Dahlia, has been captured by a mercenary group that operates in the Artemis Tau cluster. The kidnappers asked for a ransom, and Nassana did comply, but Dahlia was never released. Agree to rescue Dahlia to move on to the next objective.

Objective: Find Dahlia
Travel to the Macedon system of the Artemis Tau cluster and land on Sharjila.  The Stronghold where Dahlia is presumably being held is due north of the Mako's drop point. Drive north until you find yourself atop a hill overlooking the mercenary stronghold. As you'll notice by taking a look at your radar, the Stronghold is heavily guarded. Luckily the Mako's weapons can make short work of pirates posted outside. Use the Mako's cannons to knock out the snipers in the towers and its machine guns to kill the ground troops. Once the outer area of the Stronghold is devoid of pirates, park in front of the Stronghold, exit the Mako and enter the base.


Stronghold

Move to the end of the initial area and enter the stronghold's main room. The stronghold's interior is heavily guarded, so it would not be wise to simply charge in. Scan the area for explosive containment cells and set them off using abilities or weaponry to avoid taking damage from them during the firefight. You might even be able to take out a couple of pirates who have unwittingly chosen to take cover near one such explosive.

Be sure to keep an eye on your radar, as some of the pirates, especially the krogans, may rush you. Among the pirates is an Asari Slaver who is especially deadly due to her biotic abilities. When all of the pirates have been dealt with, proceed through the doorway in the northeastern corner of the main room and head up the stairs. Examine the Desk to learn the truth about Dahlia and Nassana.


Explosive

Desk

Objective: Inform Nassana
Be sure to decrypt the storage locker, wall safe, and collect the items from the crates in the backroom on the first floor before leaving the Stronghold. Enter the Mako and return to the Normandy once you are ready to leave Sharjila. Speak with Nassana at the Embassy Lounge and tell her of your discovery on Sharjila. Nassana offers to give you credits as a reward, but if Shepard's Charm or Intimidate talents are developed enough, a blue 'I've got a better deal' or a red 'Credits won't cut it' option will appear on the left side of the conversation wheel. By selecting the Charm or Intimidate dialogue option, you'll  be able to purchase asari mods (Omni-tools and Bio-amps manufactured by Armali Council) from various merchants.

Citadel: Family Matter

This assignment becomes available once at least one of the main storyline missions (Therum, Feros or Noveria) has been completed. Find Michael and Rebekah Petrovsky by the Bank entrance in the Presidium to get started. They are arguing about something, so approach them and see if you can help.


Michael and Rebekah

Rebekah lost her husband, Jacob, to a rare heart disease. She is currently carrying Jacob's baby, and Michael, her brother-in-law, believes that the baby should undergo gene therapy to ensure the child a life free from heart disease, as there is a small chance that Jacob's child could inherit the very disease that he suffered from. Listen to Rebekah's side of the story; she explains that there is evidence that gene therapy could harm the baby. Shepard must have enough talent points in either the Charm or Intimidate talents to complete this assignment using the persuasion options on the left side of the conversation wheel.

It does not matter whose side you take on the issue, just that you convince one of them to see the other's side. Use the blue Charm option or the red Intimidate option to convince Michael or Rebekah to back down from their stance. You'll receive Paragon points for using Charm and Renegade points for using Intimidate, as well as XP and credits once the issue has been settled.

Citadel: Planting a Bug

If you've completed the 'Citadel: Reporter's Request' assignment and at least one of the storyline missions on Therum, Feros or Noveria, Emily Wong will be waiting for you at the Citadel Tower. She can be found at the bottom of the steps that lead up to the Council Chamber. Emily asks you to plant a bug in the Citadel Traffic Control station to aid her in an investigation. Agree to help her and she'll hand over a Listening Device.


Emily Wong

Objective: Plant the Bugs
Travel to the Security (C-Sec) section of the Citadel using the Rapid Transit terminal across from Emily Wong. Traffic Control is on the far west end of C-Sec. Upon entering the Traffic Control station, turn right and walk towards the keeper at the far end of the room. Plant the bug on the aptly named 'Inconspicuous Location' to the keeper's right to complete the objective.


Traffic Control

Plant Bug

Objective: Inform Emily
Return to Emily Wong at the Citadel Tower and inform her that the listening device has been planted. You are given XP, credits and Paragon points for completing the assignment.

Citadel: The Fourth Estate

This assignment is only available once you have completed a storyline mission on Therum, Feros, or Noveria. Khalisah Al-Jilani, a reporter, wishes to conduct an interview with Shepard, the first human Spectre. She can be found in C-Sec Academy at the bottom of the steps that lead up to the Presidium elevator. Make sure that you have invested a good amount of talent points in Shepard's Charm or Intimidate talents beforehand, as they are needed to get the most out of this interview.


Khalisah

The amount of XP and credits you receive for completing this assignment is dependent on how many of the reporter's questions are answered. Choose the blue (Charm) or red (Intimidate) options on the left side of the conversation wheel to further the conversation, or the options on the right side to end the interview. Choosing the 'Time to shut you up!' option causes Shepard to punch the reporter out, effectively ending the interview and earning you Renegade points in the process. If you make the interview last, be sure to answer Khalisah's question about Saren using one of the choices on the left side of the wheel as you'll gain much more XP and credits that way.


Conversation Wheel

Citadel Assignments III


These assignments are only available while the Normandy is grounded at the Citadel. This event occurs once you've completed the storyline missions on Therum, Feros, Noveria, and Virmire and have returned to the Citadel.

Citadel: Our Own Worst Enemy

This assignment is available while the Normandy is grounded at the Citadel. Talk to Charles Saracino in the Upper Flux section of the Citadel (near the stairs that lead down to a C-Sec Academy entrance). Charles is a member of the Terra Firma Party, a political party that believes Earth should stand against alien influence.


Charles Saracino

His first question is whether or not he has your support in the next election. You can learn more about the Terra Firma party by selecting the 'Investigate' option on the left side of the conversation wheel. Otherwise select 'The ‘appeasers' are right' or 'Earth must walk alone' from the right side of the wheel to continue. Charles then asks if you would issue a statement supporting his candidacy. Select 'I won't support you' to complete the assignment and earn a couple of Paragon points, or 'You have my support' to complete the assignment and earn Renegade points.

Citadel: Negotiator's Request

This assignment is available while the Normandy is grounded at the Citadel. Speak with Elias Keeler, an Alliance negotiator , at the bottom of the stairs that lead up to the Flux Nightclub. Elias claims that he needs a mental stimulant to be at his best during an upcoming negotiation. The stimulant is legal, but regulated, and Elias has reached the legal limit. Thus, he wants you to get them for him. There are two ways to complete this assignment: convince Elias that he is an addict and has a problem using the Charm or Intimidate persuasion options, or purchase the stimulant he asked for and bring it back to him.


Elias Keeler

Select 'You're an addict' to bring up the persuasion options on the left side of the conversation wheel (if Shepard has an adequate amount of talent points in Charm or Intimidate). Select the blue 'Then the game is wrong' option or the 'Don't be an idiot' option to proceed. Elias still doesn't get it; he still wants the stimulant, but promises to get treatment for his addiction after the negotiation. If Shepard's Charm or Intimidate talent is higher still, an additional persuasion option is selectable. Select the blue 'You need help' or the red 'No. You'll go now' option to cut the assignment short and earn Paragon or Renegade points respectively.

Objective: Get The Drug
If you want to get the drug for Elias, first select one of the affirmation options ('No promises,' 'If you say so,' 'I'll see what I can do,' etc.) to end the conversation. Next, make your way to the Med Clinic in the Upper Wards,  speak to Dr. Michel and view her supplies. Scroll down to the bottom of the list to find two unique items; a Depressant and the Mental Stimulant that Elias asked for. Giving Elias the Depressant completes the assignment and yields XP, credits and Renegade points. Given Elias the Mental Stimulant yields XP and credits but no morality points.


Stimulant

For the largest Renegade bonus, give Elias the Depressant. For a Paragon bonus, convince Elias that he has a problem using the Charm options.

Citadel Assignments IV


These assignments are dependent on Shepard's Pre-service History.

Citadel: Old, Unhappy, Far-off Things

This assignment is only available if Shepard was given the Spacer pre-service history during character creation. After completing Therum, Feros, or Noveria, speak to Zabaleta in the Flux and Wards Access corridor. He is a retired soldier and claims to have known your mother. Zabaleta definitely does not look like a soldier, and evidently in a bad place financially as he asks if you can spare 20 credits. Hand over the credits to gain a couple of Paragon points.

Ashley sacrificed on Virmire.

Did not romance anyone. Pretty sure I shut Ashley down before letting her die, but it's hard to be 100% certain; I did note she had a throwaway line to the effect of "Just my commanding officer, huh? We'll see about that." shortly before Virmire.

Alignment: 100% Paragon and around 30% Renegade. I chose the diplomatic option for most quests if I could (I had a high Charm level), but occasionally shot people who I thought deserved it (Fist, for example).

I completed every quest and found every single mineral node, asari writing, turian insignia and salarian ID, even once I'd already obtained enough to complete their respective quests. Seriously, I did everything in the game. I used the Mass Effect Progress Checklist and looked at map screenshots of every explorable planet. I found the purpose of the Asari Consort's "small mystery".

The only things I didn't do were quests from the DLC, which I don't have installed.

Choices made:
- Ashley saved on Virmire.
- Romanced Ashley but told her to go away during the lockdown conversation. No sex scene occured. (My Shepard's probably considered single by ME2, but he and Ash did have a flirty thing going on. I roleplayed him as deeming it inappropriate for a commanding officer to get involved with a soldier under his command. That, and he had a secret crush on Tali :3).
- Wrex charmed on Virmire (Family Armour quest had been completed anyway).
- Council was saved.
- Rachni Queen was saved.
- Conrad Verner was treated neutrally most of the time, but Paragon persuasion was used during his final appearance.
- UNC: Asari Diplomacy completed, and for this playthrough I made sure I went to talk with Nassana to recieve the quest before going to kill her sister, as opposed to killing her sister first like I normally do during my regular exploration.
- I allowed the Alliance to retain Nirali Bhatia's body, and me and Ashley persuaded her husband that it's what she would have wanted.

All of Zhu's Hope sidequests completed, all brainwashed colonists were saved, and I even persuaded Jeong that pumping funds into the colony would be good for Exogeni's PR.


- I gave the Cerberus data to the Shadow Broker's agent.
- I gave Tali the Geth data.
- I trained Garrus to be more Paragon, and he said he was planning to rejoin C-Sec as well as apply for the Spectres.
- I told the Terra Firma party candidate that I disagreed with his platform and couldn't endorse him.
- I persuaded Major Kyle to surrender, saved the hostage from the L2 Biotics, killed all the hostiles in the base with the drugged scientists without killing any innocents, and generally saved every possible innocent while killing all the bad guys in every mission.
- I gave Schells the data for his gambling device.
- I shot the Tenth Street Reds member when he threatened to besmirch my good name.
- I gave a completely professional interview with the reporter, so much so that Hackett said that "she came across as a raving idiot".
- Saren was persuaded to shoot himself, using Charm through most of the conversation but Intimidate for the final choice (Shepard basically told him to shoot himself if he had the guts).

I chose Anderson for the Council, although this shouldn't matter because the choice is made after the final save (I think).


Big thanks to Kai for submitting this Shepard!

- Picked mixed options during conversation with Garrus. But I guess it ultimately leaned towards Paragon.

Ending:
- Saved Council.
- Anderson for the Council.

Noveria:
- Saved rachni queen. - Helped Parasini.

Feros:
- Let the asari live.
- Two colonists died. And someone shot himself.

Citadel:
- Treated Conrad Verner nicely (Paragon).
- Helped Helena Blake and let her live.
- Assisted consort.
- Fist killed by Wrex.
- Let the Alliance keep Bhatia's body.
- Helped Schells.
- Assisted Emily Wong both times.

Some side mission notes:
- UNC: Asari Diplomacy, killed sister and got the license.
- UNC: Dead Scientists, Toombs killed the scientist and himself.
- UNC: Hostage, Chairman survived and the captors surrendered.
- UNC: didn't give the Cerberus data to Shadow Broker.

Thanks to defunkti for submitting this Shepard!

Completionist. 100% Perfect Paragon, no Renegade decisions EVER made (2 Neutral decisions made only to prevent relationships with Ashley/Liara).

Bring Down The Sky: Installed
-Balak released, hostages saved.

No Pinnacle Station.

Rachni Queen: Set free

Conrad Verner: Paragon/Nice

UNC: Asari Diplomacy: Complete

Shaira/Thorian Asari: Alive

Noveria/Parasini: Anoleis Arrested

Helena Blake: Completed her quest (although for the Paragon reasons, didn't "accept" it). Following through with Paragon, she lived.

Fist: Dead (Paragon, but Wrex killed him)

Nirali Bhatia: Body returned to husband.

No relationship with either Ashley or Liara.

All quests complete (side and primary), all via Paragon route. Explored every planet/system.

This file is the perfectionist's dream. Every possible situation was resolved via the Paragon route, with a possible exception of Fist (due to Wrex). Another exception would be the lack of Pinnacle Station.

Completionist/Perfectionist Paragon playthrough with a couple of "not-really-Renegade" decisions - explanation of this below.

As far as Name, Background, Class and Character appearance are concerned, this is the true (and default) Bioware's Shepard.

Level 60, all characters with top equip (Spectre X gear, Colossus X, X mods and ammos - also lv. VII important ammos and mods), Shepard even has his game cover Heavy N7 Onyx.

- Main story summary

+ Citadel's Siege

* Saved Council

+ Citadel (3)
* Appointed Cpt. Anderson

- Side quests, Exploration, general overview
All side quests completed, with the exception of "UNC: The Negotiation", which requires either a Renegade route or glitching for morality points (Nonuel explored, though).
Prothean data disks, Matriatrch writings, Turian insignias, League of One medallions and salarian IDs, all found.
Surveyed all minerals, didn't stop upon quest completion.
Landed on every uncharted world and visited every location of interest, according to Mass Effect Wiki.
Looked for any look and cranny, 100 % explored every area: hopefully I have not missed a single crate.
Completed each squad member quest: family armor given to Wrex, allowed Tali to make copy of Geth data, dealt with Dr. Saleon/Heart.
Long story short: nothing was skipped.

- Major Plot decisions which reflects in Mass Effect 2 (for reference, see here http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Save_File_Transfer - be careful, the link contains spoiler!)

* Virmire: Kaidan sacrificed
* Wrex on Virmire: Wrex survived, talked him down
* Council's fate: Council saved by Alliance Fleet
- Other plot decisions which reflects in Mass Effect 2

* Fist on the Citadel: Killed by Wrex (Paragon option dialogue)
* Colonists and Shiala on Feros: Saved all colonists, agreed to let Shiala help Zhu's Hope
* Rachni Queen on Noveria: Rachni Queen set free
* Gianna Parasini on Noveria: Convinced Lorik Qui'in to testify, helped Gianna arresting Anoleis
* Encouraging Garrus to be more renegade or paragon: Always picked Paragon or neutral answers during dialogues. During his personal quest, only Paragon dialogues were chosen
* Helping Tali with her personal pilgrimage quest: Happily gave Geth hacked data to Tali
* Rana Thanoptis on Virmire: Spared Rana
* Captain Kirrahe on Virmire: Kirrahe and his men survived, Helped his team in every possible way during Virmire's base approach

- Assignment decisions which reflects in Mass Effect 2
* Old Friends: Finch killed (+9 Renegade)
* Asari Consort: Helped Sha'ira and accepted her gift of words. Received trinket, used it on Eletania (is a flagged event when importing in ME2)
* Homecoming: Body not returned to Bhatia, charmed him into accepting it
* The Fan: Always used Paragon lines, Conrad treated nicely and convinced to go home
* Reporter's Request: Completed, Emily Wong charmed for additional credits
* Scan the Keepers: All Keepers scanned, peacefully solves situation between Chorban and Jaleed
* The Fourth Estate: Charmed 2 times, then chose "Can't comment". Praised by Hackett for making al-Jilani look like an idiot
* Doctor Michel: Completed both quest, blackmailer killed (+2 Paragon dialogue)
* Family Matter: Charmed Rebekah into undergo gene therapy
* Hostile Takeover: Charmed Helena Blake into disband her gang
* Dead Scientists: Chamed Toombs into not shooting Wayne
* Cerberus: All quests (Missing Marines, Cerberus, Hade's Dogs) completed, Kahoku avenged
* Hostage: Convinced biotics to spare Burns
* Rogue VI: VI destroyed, Moon cleared
* Besieged Base: Being a Paragon playthrough, I couldn't have access to this quest without glitching
* Asari Diplomacy: Quest completed, charmed Nassana for Armali License and additional credits/xp

- DLC (Pinnacle Station not installed)
* Bring Down the Sky: Let Balak go in order to save hostages

- Romance
No whatsoever relationship with Liara or Ashley. Talking with them, if the proper Renegade options are not chosen, results in Shepard developing an interest in them.

In my playthrough Shepard has no love interest: proof of this is that no one comes to encourage Shepard before Joker tells him about meeting Anderson at Flux.

- Morality explained
+ 16/16 (full) Paragon bar, 1.8/16 Renegade
My idea for this run was that a Paragon has to help the galaxy and its people, more than mindlessly click on blue dialogue option.

I therefore chose Paragon options for almost every dialogue, with some exceptions I'll explain (does not contain Mass Effect 2 spoilers!) here:

* Jeong killed (+2 Paragon): If he's charmed via Paragon dialogue, ExoGeni retains its control over the colony. Insted, if he's killed (Paragon dialogue, though), the colony is free to grow on its own, making the best Paragon choice in my opinion since it's what colonists wanted
* Helped Calis spy on Binary Helix (+2 Renegade): As Anoleis confirmed, Binary Helix is helping Saren developing weapons. Why damaging Saren is considered a Renegade action is beyond me
* Killed Finch (+9 Renegade): Weisman could have killed millions of Turians with his actions. Finch is no better, declaring his (and Reds') hate for other races and threatening Shepard

For every other Assignment not mentioned here, Paragon choices were picked.

This Shepard was submitted by Ryuuichi.

This particular Shepard I played to the hilt, though to my chagrin, I couldn't get to level 60.

I also wanted to see how the Alignment system would work for two totally opposite Background choices - hence the Spacer - Ruthless combination.

I used absolutely no cheats - any achievements on this profile were earned the old fashioned way - honest play.

Pinnacle Station - Completed, got the Apartment

Bring Down the Sky - Completed, let hostages live

Was nice to Conrad Verner. And persuaded him to go home.

Used the Charm on Nassana Dantius.

Wrex lived.

Garrus was recruited.

Gave professional answers to Khalisah
Bint-Sinan Al-Jilani, Westerlund News.

Did all side quests. All planets were explored. Not even a single sidequest was omitted, save for the one for which a 75% Renegade score is needed.

All collections were completed.

Did all of the UNC:Hades Dogs quest chain.

Let the Rachni queen live.

Brought Liara along on the Noveria mission.

Charmed Lorik Qui'in to get the data for Gianna Parasini.

Ashley was romanced, but left to die on Virmire.

Salarian Teams on Virmire were rescued.

Persuaded Saren to kill himself, but was rude to him all throughout the game.

Saved the Council's scaly asses.

Persuaded Toombs to let the Cerberus scientist live.

Fist was killed by Wrex.

Charmed Helena Blake into disbanding her Merc organisation.

Recovered Nirali Bhatia's body for her Husband.

Let the Asari who survived the Thorian live.

Didn't give the files on Cerberus to the Shadow Broker.

Got the Rich Acheivement.

-------------------------

As a side note, there is about 20% of the Renegade Bar filled up (two or three bricks, that's all).

Hope you have fun!

100% Paragon, less than 5% Renegade. The only Renegade points gained were the 2 from accepting the UNC: Hostile Takeover assignment, which was finished with the Paragon outcome of getting Helena Blake to disband her gang. All other choices were made with the Paragon path.

Finished every single assignment, including UNC: Valuable Minerals, UNC: Asari Writings, UNC: Prothean Data Discs, etc. All collectable assignments were finished to the full amount, beyond what is required to complete the assignment. (e.g. UNC: Turian Insignias was finished with 17 out of 13 insignias found.)

-Let the Hanar preach.
-Helped Emily Wong with fist and with the traffic controllers.

-Schells Scanner turned in.
-Got Jenna out of Flux and mod bought from Jax as requested by Chellick.
-Garoth told of his brothers death.

-Did not support Terra Firma.
-Talked Keeler out of using drugs.
-Told Anderson to unlock the Normandy through Udina's office. (Punching him in the face to do so.)


Team member Assignments:
-Wrex got his armor.
-Tali got her geth deta.
-Took the Paragon path with Garrus in all dialog, even with Dr. Saleon.

Space Assignments:
-All Cerberus assignments finished. Let Corporal Toombs live.

-Major Kyle charmed to turn himself in. No cultist killed.
-Biotic Terrorist leader talked down, Martin Burns saved.
-UNC: Lost Module assignment finished. (No space monkeys were harmed in the finished of this assignment.)
-UNC: Missing Survey Team assignment finished. Team found turned to husks.
-UNC: Rogue VI assignment finished. Operative Specialization taken.
-UNC: Besieged Base assignment finished. All scientist saved.
(Note: The only assignment not done is UNC: The Negotiation because it requires high renegade to unlock it.)

Additional Notes:
While the following will not transfer over to Mass Effect 2 you may like to know that everything from start to finish was done playing on Insanity mode. As well almost every codex entry was found. The only ones missing are the ones bugged and not obtainable in game, (Weapons: Javelin) and ones that would only be given by making certain choices (Romance Leara to get Asari: Biology) that I did not want.

Should you use this save not to port to ME2 but to replay Mass Effect One as a high level Engineer please note that this is a perfect Shepard, meaning that not one point spent on Charm or Intimidate, however was maxed out by doing several New Game+ runs. I have also chosen the Sniper Rifle as Shepard's bonus talent. As well Shepard and his team all have Colossus Armor and Spectre weapons with X level mods.

Enjoy!

This game was beaten on Insane difficulty

Pinnacle Station installed and finished (With highest records on each scenario)

Saved the Rachni Queen

Treated Conrad nicely (But my game has a bug where in ME 2 even thought I had a paragon ending for Conrad it will show it as if I have done Renegade. Once again I did not pick the Renegade option for Conrad, each conversation with him was paragon.)

Every UNC Asari side Quest was found and completed

Feros
Done every single side quest and let the Asari stay and help the colony (Had a paragon outcome for every single mission and side quest)

Noveria
Done every single mission and side quest (Paragon outcome)
