Vetra Nyx serves as the Pathfinder team's jack-of-all-trades, emphasis on the latter. In addition to her duties she brokers deals between the lawful and lawless elements of the Heleus Cluster. Surviving the rough world of smugglers and mercenaries requires street-smarts, adaptability and cunning, qualities that serve Vetra well in Andromeda. Vetra is a potential romantic interest for a Pathfinder Ryder of either gender. Vetra was born on Palaven , but has also disclosed that she is not recognized as a formal citizen of turian society, never having entered boot camp. Vetra left Palaven at an early age, and spent most of her life in the outer reaches of Council space, never settling down in one place.
Born to a family with a long and honored tradition of military service, Nyreen Kandros left the turian military after the emergence of her biotic abilities. Oft-suspicious of biotics, the turians shipped Nyreen off to the Cabal units , where her abilities and experience were grossly underutilized. After several years as a mercenary, Kandros was drawn to Omega by its reputation as a haven for capable freelancers. Nyreen's early years on Omega were a pivotal time for her.
One of the major strengths of the Mass Effect franchise is the many unique personalities players come across throughout the journey. While the latest entry, Mass Effect: Andromeda , has yet to fully reveal many of the characters within the game, BioWare is slowly starting to pull the curtain back on a few companions characters. As fans continue to wait for more information, such as beta details and additional multiplayer gameplay, BioWare has released new information on a brand new character that the Ryder twins will be utilizing on their adventure. Thanks to a new post on the official website , the latest member of the Andromeda Initiative is a female Turian known as Vetra Nyx. It's clear that Nyx will not only be able to dish out punishment, but take it as well, similar to the other popular Turian, Garrus Vakarian.
Sounds a bit like Garrus in his Omega Batman phase, no? It took us so long to meet a female turian in the original series and finally, only in DLC that having one as part of your squad from the get-go feels really satisfying. Especially considering the still-cringeworthy words of Mass Effect 3 art director Derek Watts regarding the mysterious absence of turians universe-wide:. We usually try to avoid the females because what do you do with a female Turian? Do you give her breasts?
