Jack aka Subject Zero

(Part #1)

The most powerful human telekinetic in Mass Effect. The main problem with "Jack", a.k.a. Subject Zero is that she's a crazy, bloodthirsty, uncontrollable street punk... or maybe things are more complicated than they seem. As of July 2017, our Jack profile was cleft in two since it was slightly too long.

There isn't much to say about the Shadowgrounds video game protagonist, but attempting to make sense of the space background, and the space weapons and space armour, does present a certain space interest. In between shooting space aliens, of course.

Also her eyes are colour-coordinated with our site, so we appreciate that.
