Mass Effect - Thane and Ekram by JoesHouseOfArt Mass Effect - Thane and Ekram by JoesHouseOfArt

Drell race, Thane, outfits and background are the property of Bioware and EA Games. This is non for profit fanart only. Original character name belongs to me and is not to be used without my permission.

Thane and Ekram on the lookout for that turd Kai Leng. Honestly I just made this one to show the differences between the two Drell :P

Thane ported by :icongoha7777: and SMG ported by :iconnach77: Dagger by :iconberserker79:

I really like how Ekram isn't a total copy of thane, his facial structure is different and the colors obviously. This looks really nice!

Dragon Age. I figured it was okay to have in the ME universe since both games are Bioware ;)

Ekram looks mean, but vey badass. You made his armour, right? It turned out awesome! Great job as usual :)

Amazing work on Ekram!!:D (Big Grin)  I am especially impressed with his expression. I would love to use his face for another character - would you allow that? You would of course be given full credit! +fav

I like Ekrams look, very no-nonsense and deadly, quite the contrast to our philosophical and calm Thane :heart:.

Really like Ekram. Even if his coloring is similar to Kolyat's, in know way to I get a "Kolyat" vibe. Fantastic OC. Thane looks amazing as always. :D

YAY THANE!!!

I am loving Ekram. The variations between the two of them just make them a lot more believable, in my mind. it's nice to see some variety in the drell race. :D

Though, Ekram does kinda look a little like Kolyat, with his colouring. An uncle, perhaps? Thane's brother-in-law? Something? Come on, man! Give me a clue! I'm dying here! You're giving me too many fanfic ideas to hold inside my puny little human head!

This is a wonderful pic, and the lighting is absolutely marvelous.  Loving the neon and black-lights. :)

Insta-faved.

It means a lot that you like him. His facial structure is different to any of the other Drells but I did have Kolyat in my head as I was colouring him. I was actually thinking that he might be Thane's cousin or something like that but maybe I could leave that up to you to decide? Maybe Thane's ex's sister's brother or something....

He's got a shady past so I imagine Thane wouldn't want him to influence his son in any way letting Kolyat know they're related. Ekram's killed Batarians, Ardat Yakshi and a lot of humans which is why he was in jail. He claims he has his reasons but won't elaborate. He's got a dark sense of humour and is a more up close and personal killer than Thane.

Any ideas? The reasons for his crimes will always be a mystery but I'd love to read any canon you could come up with for the rest of his life. Maybe I should give him a blue Varren??
