Mass Effect 2 // Mass Effect 3
I love Mordin. I just love him. He brings so much depth to the salarian race. He has so many layers. He isn’t this monster who destroyed a species with the genophage. He cares about the galaxy. He cares about every single person in the galaxy. He bears the burden knowing it will haunt him, knowing it might one day kill him because he cares too much to let anyone else carry that burden. It has to be him. Not because he’s the most intelligent. Not because he’s strong enough. Because he refuses to let anyone else suffer those choices. And he feels so guilty for all the things he’s done. Enough that he’s driven to open a clinic on Omega and help people free of charge. Enough he’s willing to kill people to protect them. Enough he’ll go into dangerous territory to rescue his wayward student. Enough he’s willing to potentially sacrifice his life defending the human race. Enough he’s willing to die so the krogan can live. Never tell me Mordin is a monster. He does the things he does so no one else is forced to. He suffers the guilt so they don’t have to.
