"BY THE UNHOLY COCKROD OF TEIL DOR, VOLUS GOD OF FRUITFUL PROGENY, I WILL DESTROY YOU IF OUR RATINGS DROP ONE MORE REAPER-FUCKING DECIMAL"
-- Typical Terrorbyte address to Dwick.
Terrorbyte (real name unknown) is a fat, crass, rude, crude volus who now acts as the Chief Financial Officer of the Dwick Dwickcast Syndykyt. Superbly lacking in social skills, he nevertheless considers himself god’s gift to women and makes a point of hitting on them on sight.
Despite his repellent personality, he is an accomplished hacker, and was responsible for hacking into the Salarian Special Tasks Group for Helena Mathioudakis – an act he has since regretted, as the same group forcibly acquired his talents during their efforts to shut down a facility on Noveria.
An active channer, SpaceMiner and a prominent member of the Undernet, Terrorbyte has become inextricably bound to Jorgal Dwick since the two were used by Aphin Protretho to access the aforementioned facility. Terrorbyte (who generally loathes Dwick due to his revolting habits and general stalking behavior) has nevertheless become the brains to his brawn, serving as a (very loose) leash to the krogan's more lunatic tendencies. As such, they forged a friendship through fire in the Cerberus Attack on the Citadel, and Terrorbyte was soon revealed to be the only real editor to Dwick's poorly-made Dwickcasts. He has obtained a modicum of control over the krogan, as evidenced by his extortion by means of taking Dwick's (massively oversized) undergarments hostage during the clothing shortage on the Citadel, but the krogan still largely does as he pleases.
During the Reaper War, Dwick forcibly dragged Terrorbyte to Tuchanka to participate in a "morale-boosting activity," after which they were sent by Dwick's father (Jorgal Kawk) on an unspecified quest. Little is known of what happened then, though documented footage from Dwickcast Ep. 18 shows them at Illium's final battles during the Reaper War. During the early stages of Reconstruction, they used Dwick's lifetime savings to acquire a majority share of the Tyche Vidcast Syndicate, home of The Life Egregious and Dwick's favorite media network. Rebranding it as the Dwick Dwickcast Syndykyt, they immediately hired TLE’s Season 1-4 cast as writers, and have since enjoyed a steady stream of revenue from the resulting HV shows.
It's worth noting that on two separate occasions Terrorbyte has taken advantage of Dwick's disappearance to crown himself CEO.
Terrorbyte jealously guards his real name, to the extent that he has reprogrammed his copy of the DrunkPost app to substitute curses and insults where it would usually post the user's moniker. His real name is also one of the topics that DDS employees are contractually forbidden to ask after. Most people know him as "Ihaba Naem" (certainly an alias, of course) or just Terrorbyte.
