You know how it goes:
You’re at your second cousin’s graduation cocktail party, when suddenly random people come up to you and ask: “Hey man, what alien species do you think you’d be in Mass Effect?”
Broken, and ashamed having never given the prospect any thought, you’re left with no choice but to commit seppuku in the middle of the lounge, spoiling the carpet with your plebeian blood and ruining your second cousin’s evening because now she has to clean up your shame.
Don’t be that guy – don’t be unprepared. Take our quiz and find out exactly which part of the Milky Way galaxy you would have called home, were you born into the world of Mass Effect. (Thresher Maws not included).

Peaceful, diplomatic, and, uh, blue? You embody the ideals of the Asari – you choose words over guns, and try your best to keep the peace. You much prefer connecting with people and trying to understand them – Unless they really messes with your vibe, then they can expect a swift biotic kick in the plums.
Logical, forward and, admittedly, a bit awkward. You embody the traits of the Salarians. You’d much rather keep to the facts and pursue knowledge than waste your time with the frivolities of the other races. When confronted, you know there’s a better way out of a situation than simply tackling head on.
Timid and reclusive, you embody the traits of the Quarians. You don’t really mix with the other races and often feel a little bit left out of the goings on – but that’s okay, you have close friends and family who know you best, and that’s all you need in life.
Good old-fashioned humanity. You may not be the shiniest star around, but your determination and zest mean you’re by no means anyone’s bitch. You’re a person of action, with the capacity to fight for the greater good – or to relentlessly pursue your own goals. You’re the middle ground, unpredictable, but always exciting.
Disciplined and loyal, you embody the Turians. You follow a strict code, and life is pretty black and white for you. But that makes things easier for you: you know what you have to do, and you know exactly how to do it – and as long as your friends are with you, you’ll stick with them every step of the way.
You embody the raw power of the Krogan. Quick to anger and always up for a fight, you’re hot-headed and confrontational. While you may not be everyone’s cup of tea, there’s definitely no doubt that you get shit done. Even if you have to leave a pile of bodies in your wake.
You’re kind of a dick, really. But it works for you – it’s easier to take what you want to get ahead than mess around with “diplomacy” and sweet words. You’re not afraid to get your hands dirty and do what it takes – even if you have to lie, cheat and steal – to get what you need.
