Ideally traitorous characters get something to do before they get revealed, because otherwise you just end up looking at their named asses in the background being suspicious and serving no other function. Nyxeris was one of those "do I really need to do this mission? I'm pretty sure I know who is the real culprit here" characters the very moment I got the quest. Alas, if Liara had only seen the amount of CSI episodes I have...

I never understood the jump from archeologist to information broker...ME1 Liara seemed much too naive for such a profession.

betrayal became second nature in mass effect, at least half (i said AT LEAST) of the missions end up with an NPC turning out to be behind "something", that at some point it just becomes predictable. like in lair of the shadow broker, the moment vasir appeared even before she spoke, just from her smile it was clear to me "okay, she's one of the bad guys..."

@Sharp-Claw: it's called character development.

I know of an Elf that fooled us all...

@Blazypika2: "Hey this character was a teacher in part one, let's make him an NBA player in part 2" character development.

@Sharp-Claw: more like: "take a timid character and have them go through personal growth, leading them to use their intelligence (which they showed to have a lot of) for something other than science" character development. or did you really think that after everything she been through in mass effect 1, she'll stay the same person?

@m_celeri: drizzt do'urden? i mean he did fool people into believing he's cool, even though there is no evidence to support it =P

It's sounds better when you phrase it like that. It just seems like a strange jump.

Garrus for example has, in my opinion a much more believable development in regard to his dialogue.

I thought I would never play the DLC (DLCs on Origin are too pricy for my poor ass) so I looked it up on the Internet. ...Then not so long later there was a DLC sale.
Still, this add-on was strong enough to pull it's weight anyway.

@Sharp-Claw: It does seem like a strange jump if you just stick with the video games. Mass Effect Redemption (I believe it's a comic book?) explains how Liara got involved with the whole intelligence gathering/Shadow Broker thing.

I honestly never liked Liara. I know she's meant to be this intelligent character that really helps you, but I always found her so damn stuck up.

@Blazypika2: There were a lot of people very keen on betraying Shepard, for reasons that I will never understand. Almost as if the entire galaxy was made up by apostates.

@m_celeri: I really like how that played out, except for the ending cutscene which kind of ruined Trespasser. But that particular elf has the advantage of a whole game to do non-treasonous things, so that helps...

@mahigan: She's never been my favorite either. I found her quite... meh in the first game, and insisting on a degree of intimacy later that I never had with her, which made her rub me the wrong way.
She also ruined my Black Widow run by being impossible to kill, and that is unforgivable.
