The Merc by LuckyFK The Merc by LuckyFK
I'm back with another asari )))
You should never try to fool The Butcher, especially if you're a merc. Elnora found out the hard way.

Just a strange thought: physically the Asari become practically adult at 35-40 year age or even earlier (at least there's mention of a 40 year old that successfully pretended to be her mother) while their society still considers 100 years a bit too young for any real responsibility. Facticly it's like being stuck in the state of 16 year old teen for a century or maybe even more.
For an artist or a scientist it's actually perfect - spending a century perfecting your skills and knowledge without social pressure and maybe even become really recognized for your achievements at a rather young age.
But what about the others? Nothing really to do... No wonder that the more ambitious individuals are rather likely to join mercs just of the desire to do anything that matters, while the less ambitious maidens just spend a century or two in bars or... contributing to that reputation of their people.
So, is that the dark side of "the most advanced culture"? Or maybe the natural selection mechanism that reduces numbers of rebellious specimens and therefore contributes to the extreme conservatism of the species?
Now I feel pity for her.
My Shep wouldn't probably shot her even if he knew she's guilty - it's not Spectres' job to deal with every petty criminal and just killing them is not right either. Let the police do their job

 Never really though about it, but you might be onto something here.
I disagree on the second part though.
 It's not spectres's job to deal with every criminal, but why not deal with ones you come across. She shot every other eclipse merc in the base, why would she not deal with Elnora, when she's right there.
Murder is not a petty crime. For my Shep, if you take a life (not by accident) then you are no longer protected by the law, so it's fair game. Also it's war out there ... you can't just quit war. Elnora learned it the hard way.

Yes, murder is not a petty crime (although on Illium it almost became a usual business practice - the police is definitely not doing its job well), but on my account it's not shoot-on-sight level either. Doesn't mean letting her just go away though, if knew would probably at least explain that she's got herself into a bit too big game (Shep's way of explaining such things is pretty much effective...) or asked Garrus to drag her to the police.
Maybe I just don't like messing with such small cases. My cat has similar opinion - he never brings mice home. Sometimes he brings a rat, but never seen him with a mouse.

You still ignore the context our meeting with Elnora. It's not some random eclipse girl we meet on our stroll through the streets. It's battle. So she thought some bullshiting going to gt her out of trouble, but that doesn't fly with the butcher.
 Granted your Shep may see this differently and that's cool. But you're wording it like Shep went out of her way to shoot some shoplifter and that is not the case here.

Ah yes, "combat". With someone who was just trying to hide in a dark corner. Though with my Shep's style that attempt to pull the gun would end with that weapon smashed to bits (a seasoned Infiltrator knows some ways to disable a gun for good) and that girl would be thanking her Goddess that her hand is still there.
That's what "mostly paragon" is - first nullify the threat (if didn't end good it's their fault) then offer second chances.

You enter a base full of Mercs, you are specifically informed these are a special group of especially bad ones, with a recent murder as well as drug smuggling and sapience-trafficking on their agenda. Elnora was perhaps not willing to fight at the point in time when you find her, but that's only because at that point in time, Shepard had gunned down all of Elnora's buddies who were actively trying to kill Shepard and co. Regardless, these are effectively slavers, mobsters and murderers all rolled into one, doing all this for what reason again? Money. Credits. GREED.

In comes a Spectre with a license to kill whatever they please and a band of mercs offers resistance. You have just pointed out yours, and *MY* Shepard survived Mindoir and got her come-back in the slaughter-fests of a certain slaver base.

She would have shot Elnora out of principle if I had direct control. She would have shot her right in hr merc face.

 What? Was she some bystander caught in a crossfire? Nope, member of the gang in full battle armor and with a gun. Your arguments just doesn't hold any water, sorry.

Shot her as well. Expect no mercy, show no mercy.

Though I'd like to think she's my asari commando in ME3 Multiplayer. Poppin eads all day :]

After I realized Elnora killed the Volus, I kind of still thought she deserved a second chance; I never got to find out what happened to her after I let her go. Ah well...some questions are to be left unanswered.
