Developer BioWare has published new Mass Effect: Andromeda crew profiles, that provide more insight into two of the human members of the Pathfinder Team: Cora Harper and Liam Kosta.
What we now know about Cora is that she joined the Systems Alliance to train her powerful biotic talents, eventually transferring to an asari commando unit before joining the Andromeda Initiative as Alec Ryder’s second-in-command. Cora is said to be professional and loyal and knows the rules well enough to bend them if she needs to. She lends her huntress tactics and biotic strength to the Pathfinder’s mission.
We also learn that she’s space born and affiliated with some organization called Talein’s Daughters. Additionally, BioWare also divulged the following about the character:
- Height – 172cm (5’7)
- Weight – 61kg (134 pounds)
- Nicknames – None
- Favorite Weapon – Shotgun
- Combat Roles/Strengths – Biotic Commando, Operations Specialist
- Favorite Biotic/Tech/Other Ability – Biotic Charge
- Famous Quote – “When your biotics are honed into huntress-grade weapons… people can be weird about it.”
What we now know about Liam Kosta is that he’s a crisis response specialist with civilian tactical training. According to BioWare, Liam learned of the Andromeda Initiative after meeting former Alliance personnel at a “post-hostility relief action.” It is said his multi-disciplinary skills set him apart. Further, it has been revealed that Liam was hand-picked to support the Pathfinder team, and that he’s an idealist, willing to take risks for the good of the Initiative.
We also learn that Liam was born in London, England, and is a split resident of the Citadel and Earth. Additionally, it is also revealed that Liam is affiliated with HUS-T1 (Earth’s contribution to a multispecies civilian crisis response effort). The following further details are also provided:
- Height – 183 cm (6’0)
- Weight – 88KG (194 pounds)
- Nicknames – None
- Favorite Weapon – Overclocked Dual Omni-blades
- Combat Roles/Strengths – Close range fighter, uses his jump jet to move quickly, usually towards the target
- Favorite Biotic/Tech/Other Ability – Havoc Strike. Liam leaps forward with his omni-blades to stun enemies and prime them for combo detonations.
- Famous Quote – “I believed in a new beginning. Still do. I have to. We’re in it.”
And that’s about it for the new crew information. It’s likely BioWare will be doing this with all the game’s crewmates, so stay tuned for the rest of the squad in the build up to launch.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is slated to release on March 21, 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can check out the game’s newest cinematic trailer here.
