I’m looking for someone. An asari maiden. Perhaps you’ve been to Omega and seen her at Afterlife.
I can provide a name and a picture, if you’re willing to tell me if you’ve seen her.
I’ve seen a lot of Asari on Omega, Justicar. I don’t pay attention to them much unless I’ve got a job involving one.
I can look, but I’m not promising I’ll know anything helpful.
Because it doesn’t involve coming after you. There’s something else I’m looking for.
Are you near a place where refugees are staying?
There are a hell of a lot of refugees just about everywhere. So yeah.
Too many, if you ask me. I still don’t get what this has to do with anything.
No worse than the last time we talked. I guess that counts as good.
Basca, where are you right now?
…Why the hell would I tell you that?
I serve the common good on my own. No reason you can’t do the same, but for lack of desire to.
Maybe you’re right. We wouldn’t get along as well if I wasn’t going to kill you later.
You underestimate the amount of people out there who are only in it for their own benefit. I know because I’m one of ‘em.
So I guess you’re right. I don’t want to. I’m not some idiot who’s gonna go and get himself killed for the common good just because I fooled myself into believin’ there would be someone out there who would do the same for me.
Doesn’t matter anyway. I don’t care for what you have to harp at me about. Just make sure you’re ready to live up to that promise when the time comes.
True enough. Men like you just don’t know when to quit. If you used traits like that for the common good instead of mercenary work, I’m sure you’d make a difference.
Yeah? And what good would that do me in the long run?
Look, I’ve tried the whole “teamwork” deal before. It’s never worked out for anyone well. I’m doin’ fine with what I’ve got now. No need to stir it up.
Hah. You should expect it, justicar. I know you’re not stupid enough to think otherwise.
Don’t take that the wrong way, Basca. I admire it. I wish the asari were the same way sometimes.
…sometimes. There’s a time and a place for a blood rage, obviously.
Hmph. You might be smarter than you look, Justicar.
I have to disagree, though. Blood rage is almost always useful.
I can’t tell if it’s confidence or stupidity that keeps you chugging along. And here I thought the turians were stubborn.
A little of both. It’s my skill that weighs out the stupidity.
The turians have nothing against the krogan in being stubborn. The only difference is we usually just kill whatever is pushing us to be.
Something you should keep in mind.
You think I’ve made it over 4 centuries and expect a high-strung asari to take me out? Hah. You’re kidding yourself if you think there’s any other way this will end.
