Official theme song here:


1. Are Jane and John Related?


Not surprisingly, I get this question ALOT. No, they're not. Totally different people. No incest here. :heart: I love Jennifer's and Mark's voice acting. Bioware should have totally done something about a romance with them! XD They both have a long and complicated history together, since they were both Earth-born orphans. John Shepard is the COMMANDER Shepard, while Jane Shepard went and became an N7 solider.

2. Why is The Catalyst here?


Charlie's (his human name Alan gave him) a mysterious AI. Who knows what he has planned for the Shepard family and the whole galaxy. :iconbadassplz: I love the little guy. So evil and yet he looks like an innocent little kid! My feelings for Charlie is love. I love him to death. :iconhappyhappyplz:

3. Who's the kid?


Alan Shepard. He's a 12 year old boy who's mute, has very low social skills, and is mentally and emotionally repressed by the people around him. Knowing your the child of the Commander Shepard can shatter one's the self-esteem out the window. Poor kid. :(

4. Will you write or do a comic about them?


Comic pages about bit and pieces of the story line will come eventually from :iconannria2002:, a fanfiction and small animation is currently in the works. You'll have to be satisfied with commissioned fanarts about the story bit, by bit. :icontrollfaceplz:

You can come to my page any time! I love meeting new people!

Story Summary

Jane and John Shepard with their child, Alan Shepard.

Isn't it just a wonderful to be the child of the universe's best and greatest soldiers? Any child would be proud to be a Shepard.


But with Alan it's a whole different story.

A shy, mute, and socially awkward 12 year old boy, his upbringing was filled with unconditional love and acceptance. With John and Jane Shepard shielding him from the horrors of the previous Reaper War 12 years back, his has grown into a very naive and sheltered boy away from the real world.

Overshadowed by high expectations from teachers, friends, and everyone else around him, and feeling the over-protectiveness coming from his parents, due to the trauma they both faced on and off the battlefield, he feels trapped.

Mute since birth, he has no verbal words that he could express openly towards his family. He uses a writing board or sign language as a form of communication.

With this little boy, actions speak louder than words. In his case, it's a terrible burden and a blessing in disguise.

What will this boy, the only child of the legendary Commander Shepards, do when the universe calls for his parents once again?

When a former enemy of Commander Shepard comes suddenly and takes away their only child, no one will be able to stop Commander Shepard and his wife Jane, a former N7 soldier, from wreaking havoc across the galaxy.
