Husk Theory - and the N7 in the collectors edition artwork

Post by dorktainian on Wed Jan 23, 2013 9:52 pm

this is a big 'what if' based on time spent watching youtube and stuff.


Right guys and gals here goes...short and sweet.

what if Shepard is not Shepard.
what if He/she is a Human clone / Husk Reconstruct with the thought patterns of shepard. (hence the cracked skin / scarring), conditioned to believe he/she is shepard and has all shepards thought processes? Hence why when he/she picks control or synthesis he/she reverts to his/her husk state.



The Collectors edition gave us a glimpse of an N7 rescuing someone from the rubble.

What if in a bizarre twist shepard rescues himself/herself?


**edit** this does not discount IT

My head would actually explode if this happened. With parties, but it would still explode.

Liara could finally get that threesome.

But seriously, that's too... literal.

Ooh I like it! Measure me up for a tin foil hat! :*tinfoil*: Laughing

Bit like that season of Dr Who where Amelia turned out to be a remote controlled clone of herself. Where do you suppose the "real" Shepard is? Stuck in some isolation tank in a Cerberus facility and controlling the husk through a QEC link? Or is the copy of Shepard aware in his or her own right, and is a separate person?

Bow chicka wow wow.

And the whole season of Doctor Who was/is about Mass Effect themes, fyi. I've posted this on the forums before.

It even had riding on dinosaurs. ;)

Might explain...


The big issue is how his implants wouldn't be detected as related to the composition of husks.

Funnily enough I've always thought the Suicide Mission theme sounds very similar to the incidental music during the most recent seasons of Doctor Who. Not the classic theme over the credits, the one that plays during the exciting parts of the show.

Edit for comparison

The 11th Doctor's theme - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUMEzUMcu64

2) http://youtu.be/LXkAB5aXn24 (rescore sorry, but from the pivitol scene. "Does it look real to you." "It's a dream... because the truth was too terrible."



Which should hopefully lead to...

PUSH THOSE REAPERS AWAY, DISRUPT THEIR SIGNALS

Yep haha, I just posted it while you were typing that!


Last season of Doctor Who WAS ALL ABOUT IT. I'm sure of it by now. Bioware and Moffit met, and shared notes.

The truth is too terrible... Shepard is a husk. But more human than anyone else.

Joyful Stranger things have happened. I imagine there's quite a few Whovians at Bioware. He's not a writer, but I know Chris Priestly went to the Dr Who Experience in Cardiff while he was in the UK.

I think if Matt Smith ever did a cameo in an ME game I'd have some sort of nerd overload. Come to think of it, they already had Torchwood's Eve Myles voicing Meryl in Dragon Age 2, so you never know...

You never know...

But yeah, I keep feeling that a few of this season's episodes were a deliberate nod towards ME3, and what's to come. It wasn't just Asylum of the Daleks, but a few episodes at least.

And the truth they tell is that Shepard is ...kinda trapped right now. He needs help, and with that help, he'll push the Reapers to dark space. Even as a potential husk.

At least in Control/Synth. Maybe in Destroy, he blows it all to pieces.

he is trapped....... huskhead is trapped....... in control or synthesis his skin melts off to reveal his huskiness.

questions.... questions need answers.

Just to make more ME2 romances utterly meaningless...

And it would make Miranda's romance very creepy on her end.

It's less that he's a husk.

More that you get to determine whether to let the human take over, or the implants.

If you have romanced Liara she basically tells you through molding that Shep is Shep. Yeah, reaper tech could fool the citadel, or the Alliance or whatever. But it can't fool Asari mind melding, it just can't. Shep's Shep. Unless you choose Synthesis or Control then he's a reaper puppet.

Just like TIM (Control) and Saren (Synthesis).
