According to the wikia article
, you could ask two people about that and get three different opinions.Species:
Asari, fathered by a KroganAppearance:
When someone hears the word "Asari", they don't think of Io, not for a moment. Even if they've seen her before.
Standing at an impressive six foot eight, Io is built like an Amazon. She's far from dainty, though she is graceful in a forceful way. Her skin is light, grayish tan for the most part, but the folds of skin on her head are a surprisingly vibrant blue, which darken to the tips. Her face is what generous people would call "striking" -- She has a lantern jaw and slitted sapphire eyes set a little wider than average. A twisted little smirk never seems to leave her face.Personality:
If there's one thing Io truly despises, it's running away. She's as stubborn in conversation as she is on the front lines, and will continue to argue a point far past the point where she realizes she is wrong. Like anyone else, Io has her bad days and her good days. On the former, any sentient worth the title would steer clear, but on the latter, she's halfway amiable. However, Io is awkward in most social situations that don't involve a gun pointed at someone, a fact she hides behind gruff indifference.Abilities:
Whoever pays her, obviously. Biography:
Like most Asari, she knows nothing of her father except that he was Krogan. Her mother had no desire to raise her; She was a mercenary as well. Io was left to a foster family at an early age, and never saw her mother again. The Asari Matron who adopted her was not particularly hostile, but neither was she loving. Io was fed and clothed, but never held. In Io's sixty-ninth year, tension that had been mounting between her and her mother since childhood finally exploded. Io lost it. The fight ended with Io wreaking havoc in the house with her powers and running away from home to join the local military. It was only twenty years before she left -- She just couldn't fit herself into the structure. She has been wandering ever since, drifting from battle to battle until she finally loses the instinct to run. Equipment:
Black light armor, shotgun, pistol.
I want this character to replace Margot.
Also, I was totally not listening to A Perfect Circle - Outsider while I wrote this. No sirree.
*Io inherited this skill from her father, but she has no control over it. She's just a little tougher than normal. As a result, it is fixed at level 1.
