Originally from the planet Palaven , turians are best known for their military role, particularly their contributions of soldiers and starships to the Citadel Fleet. They are respected for their public service ethic—it was the turians who first proposed creating C-Sec —but are sometimes seen as imperialist or rigid by other races. There is some animosity between turians and humans , largely due to the turian role in the First Contact War. This bitterness is slowly beginning to heal—as shown by the cooperation of the two races on the construction of the SSV Normandy —but many turians still resent humans, and vice versa. Turian features are avian , making them resemble humanoid birds or raptors. However, unlike most Earth avian creatures, turians are viviparous and give birth to live young.
Our much beloved Mass Effect series is set in a lovingly crafted and intricate universe, where an ambitiously large number of alien races coexist or at the very least tolerate each other as long as they keep out of their space. One of the biggest exceptions to this has been the absence of female Turians from the game since Turians are a fundamentally egalitarian and widespread species in the galaxy, where military service for every citizen is seen as a mandatory part of adulthood and a cornerstone of their culture. Today, with the announcement of their latest DLC pack, Omega , they are finally revealed. One more pic below. Though many Turians sport, as seen above, elaborate facial markings.
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.
I want to see males and females of every species in Andromeda. I found it to be pretty ridiculous that we only saw one female turian in Mass Effect, and it was in the DLC for the third game. Because we all know that turians are really a single-gender species like the asari. The so-called "females" are just really feminine dudes. If they aren't there, there are going to be a lot of lonely chickens clawhammers Turian dudes.
