You seem to forget I am a member of this crew, and I have military clearance. I am a military reporter. I’m interested because you a news, Boss Vau. If you like it or not. Sooner or later there will be tabloids, there are always tabloids on the crew Commander Shepard surrounds themselves with. Wouldn’t you rather get all the facts straight now instead of having to dismiss rumors? Even if I was not allowed to report on the prothean on board, news still leaked on him. Like I said, I’m a military reporter. I’m not going to slander the Alliance, wouldn’t do good for my job.
I think it is you who doesn’t understand a crucial element of my story, Ms. Allers. I am from another galaxy where I just got done with my own war. In that war were several battles, some of which were highly classified and had secrets that if the public were to find out, it would ruin my reputation and the reputation of my brothers. Now, I know for a fact that the Illusive Man has spies here and miraculously has connections to my home seeing as he already had a file on me down to my call sign and rank.
I can’t have some reporter with all the details going around and publishing everything. My brothers are still at home and they can not be put in the public spotlight in fear that they will be hunted down for leaving the Empire. I will oblige with most of your questions. However, there are some that I absolutely will not answer to the press. There are even some that I won’t answer from Shepard. Are we clear?
