Portrait of Varen by GavinSpencer Portrait of Varen by GavinSpencer
A turian bounty hunter that goes by the name of Varen, named after the dog-like beasts.

Raised on an excommunicated turian colony nestled on a world covered in thick jungle, Varen learned to become a self sufficient predator in order to survive.

Now, he uses his expert skills as a tracker, marksman and warrior to operate as a feared bounty hunter in the Terminus Systems. However, his tastes are simple and he has amassed a fortune in collected bounties. He does not hunt for credits, he hunts for sport.

This is my friend *Stuart-Allardes's Mass Effect OC and would be villain of my comic at some point, when I decide to pick it up again.

As always, Mass Effect belongs to BioWare and EA Games.

I agree with XXect below. Scar would voice this guy.

Anyway, he looks awesome. I could see him getting made fun of the name "Varen" and killing the people who said it.

Jeremy Irons voice for Scar would go perfectly with this guy.

Thanks. You're right, he's very likely to kill anyone who mocks him.

I can picture him with Scar's voice.

YES!

Also, every time I see this guy now, I get the ME1 critical mission failure music in my head.

I'm a sucker for anything cartoon style-wise, and this image immediately caught my eye just by seeing the thumbnail.

He has that little bit of Saren in his physique (not sure if it was intentional...?) and the lines are drawn in a way that reinforces his backstory. What I mean is, he looks like the character described in the story. I can actually imagine that last line as a pick up line of his:

"I picked up a loootta credits in my time as a bounty hunter, so much I could just lay down the rifle right now and live off that fortune. Meaning, I used to hunt for creds. Now? I hunt for sport."

It does have a certain "fit from far away" quality, as one of my friends would say.

That was intentional. I wanted Varen to stand out from generic turians without overshadowing a villain like Saren.

Meaning that, visually, he was given features similar to Saren's unique silhouette without being a direct copy. Also, the character, as a villain, doesn't have that warped sense of nobility that Saren had. He's not brainwashed into doing what he thinks is best, his motivations are far more selfish.

Gain inspiration visually, but give him enough of a different way of thinking and backstory to not make him too similar to the source of inspiration. I do that often myself with OCs. In other words, he looks, but doesn't feel like Saren, which is more than enough.
