The Squadmates of Mass Effect 2 (So far) (spoilers?)

New Characters
Jacob Taylor- The protagonist of Mass Effect Galaxy. A Cerberus Agent who is the first squadmate you get.

Miranda Lawson- 'Nother character from ME:G. A Cerberus Agent genetically modified to be the "perfect woman"

Thane Krios- A drell (green fish-like alien) assassin who you try to recruit on the Asari homeworld. One word describes him: BADASS

Grunt- A violent and unpredictable krogan full of bloodlust. Looks like he's got a bit of a cyborg thing going on from the look of his armor

Subject Zero- A biotic test subject. Acts a bit like a b****. Really freaky cultist. Worst new squadmember IMO.

Legion- A geth who has a huge hole going though his stomach-area, and a bit of Shepard's Armor welded onto himself. Hunts you down for a bit. the Launch trailer shows him on the Normandy with Tali confronting him, so hat leads you to believe he is the 10th

Mordin- Said to be the 'Clint Eastwood' of scientists. A salrian who's been billeted as a guy with a "ends justify the means" morality

Samara- An Asari Justicar who is wanted by police on the Asari homeworld, you can break her out of jail and she'll follow Shepard and "adopt his morals"

Zaeed Messani- A rugged, veteran bounty hunter who Cerberus hires to join Shepard's squad. Fre DLC on day 1 to anyone who buys a new copy of Mass Effect 2. He will be the first of many downloads through the Cerberus Network.

Returning Characters
Tali'Zorah nar Rayya- CONFIRMED as squadmate. You visit the Quarian flotilla to recruit her
Garrus Vakarian- CONFIRMED to be a squadmate. Goes by the alias 'Archangel' when you first hear rumors about him.
---------------------
BioWare has stated that all of the old squadmates will come back in some way, so Wrex (if he survived) Ashley/Kaiden (whoever didn't die) and Liara will all appear at some point. Oh yeah and if you didn't tell him to buzz off...



[Spoilers]
.... Conrad Verner, AKA The Fan, will come back too. Not sure how I feel about this one.

good job, there are 10 squad mates total so im guessing there will be a turian and asari added to the list. i personally hope its garrus and liara since they were my favourite squad mates in the first game but i wont be surprised if all the squad mates are new characters. i did hear that u cant continue ur relationship with whoever u had one with in the first game so it will be interesting to see how things pan out.

Its possible that when BioWare said that there were 10 squad members in total, they meant 10 new characters added on to the ones that survived ME1. Thoughts?

The Salarian scientist was revealed as Mordin on GTTV this week.
He's billed as an 'ends justify the means' doctor.

I think they said that the ME1 squadmates wont be joining your squad this time around due to the fact that it is more of a suicide mission, but they said they would all be in the game.

Garrus has been confirmed to join your squad, though it's unsure if its only temporary or permanent. There are 3 videos about it on IGN

Basically this, it was confirmed that you would work with him at some point but bioware never said he would join your squard

You help Garrus fight a gang war and get the choice to stop him from executing someone that you want to talk to.

The male quarian could be Lemm. (for all of you that have read ascension)

Didn't Lemm end up on the Idenna and off on the Quarian expedition through the omega 4 relay?

If he's gonna be in ME2, then that means we're off through the relay of death aswell

Wouldn't it be great to meet that expedition?
Paul Grayson was a great character in the book.

I dont see why we wont. What would be the point in telling the story otherwise?

It would be like reading ME revelation and then ME1 having nothing to do with Sovreign/Saren.

I'd be willing to bet that Shepard will met Sanders at some point, but whether in ME2 or ME3 remains tbc

A scene like this was described in the July 09 issue of OXM (NA), it didn't mention Garrus specifically though.

It was in OXM months ago, Garrus is trying to snipe someone you're talking to.
The interrupt conversation option is to move out of the way and allow the shot.

yep, I'll be excited to actually see the Quarian Flotilla and see how it compares to what I imagined while reading Acension

Did any body notice in the Tali Trailer that the Male Qurarain was very close to Sheperd, almost as if he is a squad mate 00:28 seconds

Another new squad member confirmed yesterday at gamespot.

Samara, an asari who appears to be a Matriarch rather than a maiden like Liara was.

I saw that vid. Forgot to edit this. Thank you poster. When the final list is compiled I'll remember to acknowledge any and everyone who helped with the list. Hopefully Wrex and Garrus are actual squad members so I can continue using my squad from the 1st game. With the exception of Legion (who may not even be a squad member according to 'The Enemies of Mass Effect 2' Trailer) none of the new characters are "click"ing with me yet. Thane is maybe the only one, but I'd have to see his specialties first

If I were to guess, there will be a new Turian too, seeing as they already have most of the main species already. I'd be suprised if they reveal any more new characters actually, because except for the "non-combat" species, Batarian, and the new Vorcha species, they have everyone covered

I'm just glad to have Tali back. I guess I'll have to find someone else to use.

I hate the new guys...

I personally think most of the new guys are really good, aside from subject zero. I'd like to see Garrus back at least.

I see no reason why they don't throw in 1 playable class of all the races. Its possible isn't it? (the races that still exist)

1 - Thane (Drell)
2 - Grunt (Krogan)
3 - Miranda (Human)
4 - Jacob (Human)
5 - Subject Zero (Human)
6 - Samara (Asari)
7 - Mordin (Salarian
8 - Tali (Quarian)
9 - ???
10 - ???

Judging by the current information we're still waiting on a Turian squadmate, they won't leave such an important species which is liked by so many fans out of the squad list. Then I imagine the last one will be human as the humans seem to fit the majority of the squadmate agenda. Unless Legion makes an appearance. Hmm...

What about that faction of Geth that broke off from the others? Perhaps we'll be getting a geth squaddie.
