During playthroughs of the trilogy where I don't romance her. I like to think this is who she ended up with after the Reapers are defeated. I remember a quote in the Citadel DLC where he says Protheans actually did date the Asari back in their cycle. And during the goodbye scene on Earth where he says after the war is over, he may consider writing a book about the Protheans with Liara (Don't let him use that Echo Shard) So I think I reckon it is feasible that they eventually became close.

A lot of Javik and Liara (Liavik? Javara? Jara? Livik?) art on this site. This one is by far the best with art, mood, lighting, setting, and design.

Thank you for sharing.

Shepard: Javik, do you mind telling me what's going on here?         Javik: I am sorry Commander, but I was just, as you primitives say in this cycle, "letting out some steam".

I've read your comment about Javik below and I'd like to say that our opinions on him are very much alike. I cannot even call him a racist, 'cause he said that the other races who joined Empire were also considered Protheans after their joining. He only considers primitives the ones who really were such in his cycle.
He is an imperialist, kinda some Roman soldier :) but not a racist to my mind.
And he definitely is one of the best team members in ME3. I wish him all the happiness (if any is to be found in post-reapers universe), but I find it wrong not to let him recall his friends and close ones. It seems wrong, I think guys who fought alongside the previous Commander deserve being remembered. I know what Javik would desire to do afterwards, but my player's character doesn't (and she would prefer to remember were she in Javik's boots).

I just liked the idea that in case Liara is not in relationship with Shepard in ME2 than Feron is her romantic option (and one certain quest gave us some solid hint to think so)

I don't mind the idea of Liara/Feron, I just like the idea of Liara/Javik a whole lot more. =)

Still Liara and Javik do make sense, in case Javik cares about that side of life. I think he's a broken lad, though he doesn't show that, and if you let him touch that memory device... you see that clearly. He's like a Shepard who lost everything and everyone, failed his/her mission and woke up 50000 years later among sapient varrens and pijaks.

One of the reasons I REALLY like Javik/Liara and why I think it makes sense is because Javik is a dark mirror to Shepard. He has all the qualities that attracted Liara to Shepard. I can easily see her falling in love with Javik considering.
That being said, what makes me love it more is that Liara never goes all uguuu~ over Javik like she does with Shepard, and I adore their little sassy banter. It reminds me of the relationship between Joker and EDI in ME2.
Hell I think Javik is even more compatible with Liara than Shepard is, especially if you're playing Shepard renegade.
That and I think that Javik deserves to have some love after the horrific experience he's gone through. I mean the poor guy really has absolutely nothing. I think he needs Liara more than Feron does imo.

Who would care about love interest in such circumstances?
Well, I think that yes, it would take Javik a very long time to really get into a relationship with anyone, but he already visibly cares about Liara (see Tali's drunken call) so I think it would definitely happen down the line. Maybe after a few years once he's had the chance to mourn and kick the xenophobia habit.

I cannot even call him a racist, 'cause he said that the other races who joined Empire were also considered Protheans after their joining. He only considers primitives the ones who really were such in his cycle.

I very much love Javik, I really do, but even I can't deny that Javik IS a racist. He is. Yes, they assimilated other species, but they did it by force, and said species were basically slaves (a conversation between Garrus and Javik confirms this). It's like saying that just because the British Empire included people in Pakistan and India and considered them British subjects means that there was no racism involved. There was.
That being said, if you make him get along with Liara and they decide to write a book together, he corrects himself and refers to her as "Dr. T'Soni" so it shows he's gotten character development and isn't as racist as he starts off with.

I wish him all the happiness (if any is to be found in post-reapers universe), but I find it wrong not to let him recall his friends and close ones. It seems wrong, I think guys who fought alongside the previous Commander deserve being remembered.

Ah yes, I understand this.

The way I personally see it, is that Javik will ALWAYS look into the echo shard, whether Shepard tells him to or not. Shepard is only delaying Javik from doing so.

My idea is that Shepard is giving him a chance to try to find happiness in the current cycle, so that once Javik does look into it, even with those painful memories, he won't kill himself because he's found a new reason to keep living.

Which, in my shipper head, is Liara.

I think the reason he kills himself isn't just the pain, but also because it's a reminder that he's alone, so if he feels someone is there for him, someone who loves and cares about him, he'll likely hesitate.

I guess I just really love Javik, and I think letting him touch the echo shard is unfair because you're not giving him a chance to find happiness by driving him to suicide.
So the idea that one of my most favorite characters gets driven to suicide just pains me, and it pains me even more that no one will mourn him. It's just one of the saddest things ever imo, especially because he's really never had any sort of happiness in his life, all he's had is death and war.

>> One of the reasons I REALLY like Javik/Liara and why I think it makes sense is because Javik is a dark mirror to Shepard. He has all the qualities that attracted Liara to Shepard.

Yes, I totally agree here :)
I always took Javik as a "shepard" of his cycle, and I would love to know more of his life back then (how do you think, would Bioware make us a present with some DLC? can we raise such a hope?=)).
Though Liara is different in ME2, she's changed since ME. She got more confidence and can show more self-respect, she doesn't need Shepard's support that badly anymore.

>> That and I think that Javik deserves to have some love after the horrific experience he's gone through. I mean the poor guy really has absolutely nothing. I think he needs Liara more than Feron does imo.

I think what he deserves most of all is meeting smb from his cycle. I pamper a hope that some Prothean he knew could still survive in another life-pod. Not a bosom friend maybe (we know that the closest ones died by his own hand), but somebody he knew. Anyway, in his current circumstances some relations (maybe not even love, friendship and cooperation are ok to my mind) are better that none.

>> It's like saying that just because the British Empire included people in Pakistan and India and considered them British subjects means that there was no racism involved. There was.

Yep, I know. You're right about British Empire, but I think that empires can be different. India was a colony for British Empire, but I'm not sure that planets Prothean Empire assimilated were the same for Protheans. They possibly were treated differently (but you may be right here as well, 'cause I didn't see that discussion between Javik and Garrus).
I'm not trying to say that Protheans were all tolerant =) I just cherish the idea that since some race joined the Empire they didn't care about that race's looks and origin (I can be wrong here, but I thought they cared more about what you actually are and much less about your origin, and that doesn't mean saying they were kind, understanding and tolerant). I even wonder if members of Javik's team were of different races.

>> The way I personally see it, is that Javik will ALWAYS look into the echo shard, whether Shepard tells him to or not. Shepard is only delaying Javik from doing so.

Never thought about that, it seems reasonable. A pity we can't find a confirmation in the game.
And Liara could possibly give him a reason to keep going on, I agree. I also see that he respects her and likes her. But that difference of 50000 years is smth not easy to overcome. It's a bit like Shepard and Samara. They can also like each other, and she shows respect to the Commander, but there are too many differences. And that's a pity! If I ever played male Shepard I would like to get him in relationship with Samara (she's a deep character, one of the most interesting and intriguing, and she's an adult - so there would be no teenage angst ^_^).

>> I guess I just really love Javik, and I think letting him touch the echo shard is unfair because you're not giving him a chance to find happiness by driving him to suicide.

Oh my, I love him too. Be sure I understand you here. He deserves more respect that half of the other teammates altogether because of the fact, that he helps Shepard in that war even being completely alone with all his world destroyed, his race dead e.t.c. And he does that because it's a thing he has to do and it's his duty. He's really strong.
Driving him to suicide is completely unfair, but Shepard doesn't know the outcome of letting him look in the memory shard.

>> it pains me even more that no one will mourn him.

That's horrible indeed, but ME3 is all like that. For examle no one seems to remember Thane's death, that's pretty much the same.

>> It's just one of the saddest things ever imo, especially because he's really never had any sort of happiness in his life, all he's had is death and war.

Maybe he had some happiness, we don't know. It was not just the first thing to care about in his cycle :) duty came first.

Thank you for this discussion. I also find Javik awesome, it's pleasant to talk to somebody who understands.

Yeah, it's obvious Javik was meant to be a sort of Shepard of his cycle, though one who was born too late.
And no, the Citadel DLC is apparently going to be the last one, besides I doubt it'd work.

Though Liara is different in ME2, she's changed since ME. She got more confidence and can show more self-respect, she doesn't need Shepard's support that badly anymore.

True, but she's technically still in love with Shepard. It's very obvious from their interactions, not to mention that even though she could have started something with Feron, she never did and is still romanceable. I don't think she DEPENDS on Shepard, not at all, but her feelings are still there.

I think what he deserves most of all is meeting smb from his cycle. I pamper a hope that some Prothean he knew could still survive in another life-pod. Not a bosom friend maybe (we know that the closest ones died by his own hand), but somebody he knew. Anyway, in his current circumstances some relations (maybe not even love, friendship and cooperation are ok to my mind) are better that none.

I actually really dislike the idea, and I highly doubt it. Javik's group was really the very last vanguard and he confirms it, and extra care had to be taken to keep him alive by shutting down all other pods.
I think what he needs is to adjust and adapt to the current cycle, and he can't do that if he still has remnants of his own to cling to (which is why I prefer liara/javik to javik/shepard). It'd be much healthier for him to learn to be happy in the current cycle with people of the current cycle. He cannot make do in a tiny bubble.

They possibly were treated differently (but you may be right here as well, 'cause I didn't see that discussion between Javik and Garrus).
I'm not trying to say that Protheans were all tolerant I just cherish the idea that since some race joined the Empire they didn't care about that race's looks and origin (I can be wrong here, but I thought they cared more about what you actually are and much less about your origin, and that doesn't mean saying they were kind, understanding and tolerant). I even wonder if members of Javik's team were of different races.


And like I pointed out, since Javik specifically mentions additions to the Empire being subservient, if they were assimilated to the Empire they were treated as conquered subjects and little more than slaves. Javiks' xenophobia points to this direction. Javik's disdain towards the Tali/Shepard relationship - "mating between species is a pointless exercise" shows that likely interspecies relationships were highly frowned upon or taboo and thus other species were not integrated very well.
The way I see it, most of the subservient races were sacrificed to keep the Reapers off the master prothean race, and I doubt they fought alongside master race protheans to use a term. I personally believe that most of them were extinct by the time Javik was born, or shortly after. Remember he was born right at the tail-end of the Prothean-Reaper war. A lot of the way he behaves makes me think he wasn't around other species' outside of his own.

Never thought about that, it seems reasonable. A pity we can't find a confirmation in the game.
And Liara could possibly give him a reason to keep going on, I agree. I also see that he respects her and likes her. But that difference of 50000 years is smth not easy to overcome.

If I ever played male Shepard I would like to get him in relationship with Samara (she's a deep character, one of the most interesting and intriguing, and she's an adult - so there would be no teenage angst ^_^).


No, the reason Samara hesitates to get together with Shepard is because she has dedicated her life to a cause and doesn't want to get emotionally involved and attached to someone, especially after having to murder her own daughter.

It's not easy to overcome, no, but the fact that Liara is a prothean researcher and takes interest in his people I think would make the transition a lot smoother and actually possible. Hence why I can only really see Javik with Liara, I could never see him getting together with a random asari or quarian. Liara just happens to have a very specific set of characteristics that I think could make their relationship work.

That's horrible indeed, but ME3 is all like that. For examle no one seems to remember Thane's death, that's pretty much the same.

Thane had his son, and died alongside Shepard and Kolyat, he didn't die alone. if Javik were to go to the Coronian nebula he would die alone and I cannot stand that. He would be dying in one of the most possible ways, after a life of nothing but horror and death.

Maybe he had some happiness, we don't know. It was not just the first thing to care about in his cycle duty came first.
Nothing that ended well
and I really like him with Liara, because in a way Liara is the only good thing that ever happened to him (see: his character development), the one person that after the way he doesn't have to worry about dying and losing too.
