Mass Effect: Return from the Shadows
Investigation in the Kahje System
XP upon Completion: 5,000
Tresan Thrios has slowly but surely tightened his grip on the the Kahje system, obtaining more and more power as the government starts to tilt towards a dictatorship. However, all this power gain has been through what seem to be mostly legal moves on his part, and if he has done anything illegally, no one has turned anything up on it. In fact, this move has mostly been in the favor of the people, many of whom have supported the push to give Thrios more power. However, almost equal in number, though much less out spoken, are those who fear that Thrios has been abusing his power and wish to put an end to his rule. The most extremist of this camp have started an open rebellion against Thrios, led by his own son Resen, though it is a very fledgling organization and has not made significant progress. Most believe that the rebels are too extreme, even those that may not agree with Thrios’s ascension to power, so the rebels lack the general population’s, and at a larger scale, the galaxy’s, support.
However, the system is a powder keg ready to be lit, and that appears what the Hand intends to do. It seems likely that they are going to try to play both sides of the war, pushing both towards an open conflict that could tear the system apart. In order to truly discover what the Hand plans to do in order to achieve this goal, it seems necessary to gain access to both Tresan Thrios’s government and the rebels. Once it has been discovered what the Hand plans to do to push the system to war, hopefully by having influence in both camps can conflict be avoided.
