At the beginning, I didn't plan to draw a whole series. I was drawing some parodies of Mask of the Betrayer when I noticed that I had already drawn most of the story, so I thought "hey why not?" and I started drawing the missing pieces Back in those days, I was also reading JC-Blade's Mask of the Betrayer fan fic and that probably influenced my choice of drawing the whole story.
I always liked how unenthusiastic they are about appointing the Sole Survivor and the Ruthless Shepard, compared to the War Hero. With the first two, it's all "Is that the kind of person we want protecting the galaxy?", but with the War Hero, they're like "YAY SHE WILL SAVE US ALL! WE LOVE YOU SHEPARD!"
And yes, it could be worse. She could've been shaving.
