Asari

The Asari are perhaps one of the more recognizable alien species in Mass Effect. Despite coming off to the casual (and uninformed) observer as the token “blue-skinned space babes” the Asari actually have a remarkable amount of depth and sophistication and are considered to be the most advanced of all the civilizations in the ME universe’s Council races.

They’re well known for their grace and diplomatic finesse, and for their incredibly long lifespans. All Asari have inherent biotic potential, though not all of them choose to develop biotic powers.

The Turians are a militaristic race of aliens who are partially avian in nature, though they do sport a metallic looking carapace, giving them a distinctive look.

Turians are regimented, organized and sport a powerful military that permeates their entire society. The Military isn’t separate from their daily life. It’s this sort of mindset that usually promotes the societal ideal of giving up personal desires for the good of the society or group.
