"At least if I'm out here, I can give the quarian viewpoint. An ambassador, I guess. It's not perfect, but I'm not going to give the racists any ground to stand on, if I can help it."

Yvir’Reizh vas Vestira nar Usela was a quarian electronics expert, troubleshooter, and “junk-heap philosopher” who, by all appearances, seemed to be just an average quarian trying to make his way in the world. The truth was a bit more complicated.

Analytical, reserved, and (mostly) good-natured with a smart-ass sense of humor, Yvir was an absolute nerd: whereas most quarians took up some sort of technical trade as part of their education, Yvir dove into it and took to electronic engineering courses, learning how to create and maintain (and break) the systems that kept the Vestira running.

As such, he tended to assume he knew better than anyone in the room, though he wouldn't publicly admit it and often missed simple things due to it, glossing over critical pieces of information in his arrogance.

This was ‘tempered’ by a self-deprecating wit (which he ironically "took pride" in having: “Keeps me from getting a big head.”) and a natural tendency to challenge himself with new ideas. He also tended to bottle up negativity, deflecting and defusing it with humor.

Also of note was his ability to summon an aura of sanguine confidence before dropping back into his usual quiet self. This lead to a great deal of self-doubt and loathing for fear of becoming a smug, self-absorbed sort like his father.


  • A particularly unique skill (for a Fleet quarian) was his ability to use sniper rifles. While he regarded it as one of his father's many follies and a useless skill, it did come in handy more than once -- particularly when picking off Reaper troops.
  • Yvir was one of the last natural left-handed quarians around. As such, it was fairly easy to identify him in a crowd - look for the lefty suitrat.
  • Yvir also owned a custom-made robotic iguana, originally meant to be a pet for a client.


Yvir is derived in part from Arcade Gannon of Fallout New Vegas, being a sarcastic, but well-meaning sort.
