Specialty

Specialties

  • Acrobatic
    You’ve had training in leaping, jumping, contorting, and dodging out of the way. You’ve got a great sense of balance and you’re not afraid of heights.
  • Biotics
    You’ve had training in biotic theory and mass effect fields. You understand the incredible power and limits of biotic ability, and may even possess some power yourself. To you, biotics are much more than “space magic”.
  • Business
    You’ve got business acumen and know your way around economics, finances, small businesses, corporations, and sales. You can talk statistics and spreadsheets, forecasts and futures.
  • Combat
    You’re good in a fight and have the training and talent required to act on the offensive or, if you like, the defensive. Your experience may involve anything from hand-to-hand conflict with fists and swords to firefights with modern weapons.
  • Cosmic
    You’ve got knowledge and even experience with other worlds and other races in the galaxy. You have some sense of what alien cultures exist and the sheer scope of the Mass Effect Universe.
  • Covert
    Whether you’re an assassin or a C-Sec officer, you’ve got the training and the skills to sneak into, infiltrate, investigate, and even overthrow other organizations or locations.
  • Crime
    You have a professional understanding of the criminal mind, either because you are a criminal yourself, or you hunt them down. You know how crooks think, you know the law, and you know all the tricks of the trade.
  • Diplomacy
    You have training in dealing with other cultures. You are at ease with all of the council races, and perhaps even some of the non-council species. You can avoid making an embarrassing or deadly faux pax whether you are hanging with the hanar, or talking with the turians.
  • Medical
    You’ve had medical training. You might be a field medic, a nurse, a pharmacist, or an endocrinologist. Maybe you specialized, or perhaps you focus on general practice. You might even study ancient or tribal medicine. You know your Rx from your IV.
  • Menace
    You know what scares people. You’re familiar with how to get others to do what you want through force, threats, intimidation, and fear. You’re also better able to resist these things yourself. Contrast it with Psych, which is more insightful and better for recovery.
  • Psych
    You have a gift for understanding behavior. You’ve been a counselor, therapist, researcher, or confidante. You might even be a bartender or consort. This Specialty is the opposite of Menace, which draws on fear and negative persuasion.
  • Science
    You know how the world works, and how scientific laws answer life’s problems. You’ve studied biology, physics, chemistry, or any of the other natural or physical sciences. For astrophysics and the mysteries of the cosmos, use the Cosmic Specialty.
  • Tech
    You can use, repair, and invent electronic, digital, or mechanical gear. You’re an inventor, mechanic, beta tester, or hacker. Tech covers a broad range of equipment, from omni-tools to Eezo cores. You probably have a specific area of expertise, though if anything breaks, you can probably fix it.
  • Vehicle
    You don’t just know how to fly a car; you were born behind that wheel. You’re a spacecraft pilot, a skilled driver, or a talented vehicle operator. It might just be a hobby for you, but you make it look easy.
