An extensive profile for Dr. Liara T’Soni as she appears during Mass Effect 2, which also covers the interim events between the two games. Also comes with a huge amount of material about Asari physiology.

As of June of 2017, this article was cleft in two because it was just too big. This one is thus the first part of Liara’s ME2 profile.

Part #3 of our Valérian & Laureline series of profiles, about these seminal graphic novels. Here we finish summarising the stories, and explain the timeline shenanigans in a compact and, dare I say, timely manner.

Part one of a big article (presented in easily digestible smaller bits, as usual) about a rather important series of graphic novels.

It’ll explain all the things. Yes, even *that* thing you thought nobody’d ever explain. That one’s in part #3 in the article, but still do read it all in order ‘kay thanks.
