The Asari are a blue-skinned humanoid race native to Thessia. They are distinct from most other races in two ways, firstly they are all female and secondly they have a lifespan averaging 1000 years. They were highly empathetic, making them skilled diplomats and influential in galactic politics. Their unique physiology meant they were capable of breeding with any species. They were all naturally gifted in biotics, the manipulation of forces through mass effect fields, a trait rare in most other species.
I played a bit of Mass Effect: Andromeda last week and came across Peebee, who looks like a fun character and I was reminded of how complex the stories of the Asari are. I remember playing Mass Effect 2 and listening to a Salarian trying to buy a memorable gift for his Asari wife, knowing she will outlive him by centuries.
