Mass Effect Occitania - Karnach by JoesHouseOfArt Mass Effect Occitania - Karnach by JoesHouseOfArt
Mass Effect, costumes and weapons belong to Bioware and EA Games.The name "Occitania" and original character names and likeness belong to me and are not to be used without my permission. This is non for profit fanart only.

Karnach broke loose from the Salarian testing facility, killing many. He then smuggled himself on board Elliot Wolfe's ship as he was leaving off planet. Karnach attempted to kill Elliot and take over his team. Elliot knew that a Yagh would never refuse a battle to determine who should rightfully lead. Karnach, believing himself to be far more intelligent than any human and 50 times stronger, accepted the challenge. Elliot defeated Karnach at in a crushing three games to zero at "Omega Guitar Hero". Now Karnach follows Elliot, awaiting his chance to kill any Salarian he can get his hands on, all the while nightly practicing his guitar skills.

Thanks to PrincessFelia for the armor I ripped apart and edited.

Giving him armor for the lower half of his body instead of his torso and shoulders would make him more intimidating imo. I'm just just saying, I know he's a Yahg and all, but any smart enemy like Cerberus would just take his legs out with a few grenades or unload their clip at his knees lol

If they're clever they'd go for the knees. Most people's instinct is to go for a body shot so hopefully he'll be okay. I figure with those muscley horse legs he'd be a super fast runner so not having armor there might help. I started off giving him full armor but it just looked funny :(

JOE! Stare 

Wha? What's this? Hahaha a half-naked Yahg?.....Laughing my ass off! 

Well at least he doesn't have any male bits dangling freely...I understand if that's all you can give that poor fella is upper armor though! Cool idea to add a yahg to the team! :)

Hahaha. I did initially give him a crotchpiece but then it just didn't look right. From the look of him I don't think Yagh have daddy bits. Maybe they fertilize females eggs with spores or something like fish :P

Awesome!  I wondered what a Yaug without the gut would look like.  I would say he needs some pants, but there could be an interesting/humorous conversation piece:

[Insert Human Character Name Here] - Hey, Karnach, I was wondering... Where's your uh, manly parts [gesturing to lower region]

Karnach - retracted, because I'm surrounded buy male and female aliens that I'm not all that attracted to
Pandora - Awwwh, why not [sad pouty expression on her face]
Karnach - Sorry, Pan I like to live after I mate.  should I ever want to off myself, I'll give you a call
[IHCNH] - .......
Karnach - Why do you ask?  Don't your "parts" work the same way
[IHCNH] - Not really.
Karnach - what, do they just dangle there between your legs?
[IHCNH] - why do you think we wear pants
Karnach - [bewildered expression on his face] before the crafting of these "pants", what stopped a wild animal or angry spouse from tearing it off
[IHCNH] - not sure about the wild animal, but we probably avoided angering our spouse
Karnach - that can't be avoided sometimes
Gorr - I feel ya there

Hahahaha. Priceless. I've angered mine a few times. Thankfully she hasn't thought to try and rip off my man tackle yet :P

I figure maybe Yagh don't have wieners. Maybe they fertilize female eggs with spores like fish. Can't be much fun but that's why they're so angry all the time :P

they're not angry all the time.  the one on the shadow broker ship was calm and collected until Liara pissed him off.  the group on the salarian home world were pissed off because they were abducted, caged and experimented on by feeble looking frog people that looked at them like they were monsters, how happy would you be if you were in their situation.  the first contact they had could have easily been partially the council teams fault; especially if there were more Turians (imperialistic military) and salarians (shifty scientists) than Asari (diplomatic harlots, but at least diplomatic; probably didn't help them much) and the Yaug are natural experts on body language with their 8 eyes, making it almost impossible to lie to them.  it's likely no one outside the dead first contact team knows what really happened.  It bugs me sometimes when people judge big strong people as stupid and violent, or making characters as such.

It would be a cruel existence if they didn't have something to sink into there females.  I don't think they could do the biotic mind banging that Asari do.  they could have a package similarly working to what a lot of reptiles crocodiles have.  I'm not sure what it's calledbut hopefully you know what I'm talking about so I don't have to explain it, but I'm likely sounding weird already talking about animal "equipment".

Well Karnach is definitely intellectual but he's a vicious and violent killer too. You definitely could be right about why the negotiations broke down. It would have been beeter for the senate to do some more research before sending down any ambassadors.

it's possible they were unable to get any research, who knows what those 8 eyes are capable of seeing.

same here, unless I'm able to see thoughts or the depths of someone's soul without wanting to then I would want to gouge out 6 of them.  if they had a type of see-thru vision, that would be fun.  unless that's uncontrollable, then it would be the time gouge out all eyes then eat fired shotgun rounds.

:lol: I see you've changed the Yahg's name to something more..."exotic" than "Tommy"! :) :thumbsup: And I'm sure he didn't expect a lowly human to beat him, nor did he expect that that human would challenge him to play "Guitar Hero"... :roll: :lmao:

Aw man I really liked his old name but then I realized I have two other OCs with names starting with a T :(

Lol. I was just picturing a Yagh with his massive fingers trying to rock out pressing those little guitar buttons :P
