Mass Effect: Evolution #4

A new series featuring the origin of our galaxy's most mysterious powerbroker --The Illusive Man!

The origin story of the Illusive Man concludes, here -- and as we see, it is a bit of an origin story for Saren, too. Everyone learnes that the past is something best left alone.

Since the artifact was the one thing that the Meta-turians -- and that Meta-Hislop -- cared about, we worked the story in such a way that Desolas would always have to use it to keep them on a leash. And eventually, it becomes his undoing.

We also wanted to suggest a little tension between Saren and Desolas as the series went on; now, we see the final stage of it. It's a rough day for the Arterius family.


  • The Meta-turian name was mine -- I needed a way to keep the transformed versions distinct from the others.

  • This story concluded after Mass Effect 2 had been out for a while, so most people at that point had a notion that something wasn't right with the Illusive Man.
