Mass Efect Occitania - Ekram and Rakhan by The-JoeBlack Mass Efect Occitania - Ekram and Rakhan by The-JoeBlack

Drell race, outfits and background are the property of Bioware and EA Games. This is non for profit fanart only. Original character names belong to me and is not to be used without my permission.

Ekram and his pet varren "Rakhan", named after the Drell homeworld. As Ekram would say "Never forget where you came from". Rakhan is slimmer, faster and smarter than your average varren thanks to Ekram's training. I'm going to build the little guy a set of armor of his own day :)

Aw! Ekram has a pet Varren! That's so cute...

Wait, that's not cute. Ekram wanted him so he could unleash him on his opponents in battle, didn't he?

Does it speak badly of me that I can't decide whether that is horribly savage, ruthlessly practical, or poignantly poetic?

Oh, shit, I was supposed to help come up with a more detailed backstory, wasn't I? Remind me of these things, next time!

Ekram actually saved the little guy as a puppy when some Krogans killed it's parents for sport. Ekram would never show that he's fond of him but he'd rip out the throat of anyone that hurt him.

And yes I am still waiting on some backstory for him :(

We're going to have to organise a time to be online at the same time and collaborate, because that little tidbit there is something I would never have thought of.

I just thought of half of that just as I was typing it :P Yeah I'd love to get some more of your ideas. I'm pretty sure no one knows more about Drell than you.

^That's my email, just pop it to there and I'll play around with it until I find something that works well enough.
Any idea what color his armor's going to be, or any specific color scheme you'd like me to stay within?

Thanks a lot! I was hoping the scarf thingy would suit him. I figured he might need it to wrap around his bright blue head when he's sneaking around :P
