ME Origins: Kaidan Alenko by pen-gwyn ME Origins: Kaidan Alenko by pen-gwyn
The look his parents gave him when his biotic potential manifested would follow him for the rest of his life...

-----

There was no excuse for what he did...nothing that he could of said that would change things...but really, all that he had meant to do was to protect Rahna.

-----

After spending years lost and adrift, he eventually found his way back to the place he thought he could best put his existence to use; the Alliance.

-----

Serving aboard the Normandy was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but he surprised himself by enjoying every moment spent with the crew.

-----

They said that the pain would eventually fade away. That Commander Shepard would want him to move on. But all he remembers is his motor functions being set to automatic, leaving his mind to wander in those last few seconds of the Normandy...

-----

He turned away from Shepard, the unmistakable feeling of betrayal rearing its ugly head at the back of his mind.

-----

As he helped out Commander Shepard get aboard, he was not in the least unaware that he was reaching out for Earth's last hope at salvation.

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

And the origins serie continues~! Or at least I'm trying to...

Kaidan is without a doubt my favourite character in Mass Effect, so it was a real joy to see a piece that explored his backstory (which is so sadly so often overlooked/neglected by the ME fandom as a whole) so well. Absolutely lovely.

I agree - how can someone say he's boring idgi, I love his background story!

I really enjoy these wordless comics (or whatever you call them) you do. I like trying to work out what each section represents without checking the notes!

This really fits into the universe, and its nice to see all these moments fleshed out.

this is amazing! I love it.
One comment though: I could be wrong, but I don't think biotic powers "manifest" because they are implants (hence Kaidan's headaches from having the faulty L2 in his head...).
