Chorban is a self-proclaimed salarian scientist, who has developed a scanner to obtain readings of keepers.

Mass Effect Edit

Chorban and his partner Jahleed stole the plans for an advanced medical scanner from the company they were working for. They reconfigured them to scan the keepers. Chorban is very interested in learning more about the keepers, since very little is known about their activities and how they accomplish them. However, though he does not believe his scanner disturbs the keepers, he is hesitant to continue his research overtly, lest the authorities take a dim view of his curiosity in the creatures. Commander Shepard can volunteer to continue the research, and later help Chorban's colleague, Jahleed, in his conflict with the salarian.

Mass Effect 2 Edit

If Shepard did not kill Chorban in 2183 and scanned all or most of the keepers, he will contact Shepard via email to give the Commander a summary of his findings:

From: Chorban
I hope this address still works. I promised to send you intel on the keepers if I found anything, and this is important. See, those scans you took? It turns out the keepers are bio-engineered...and based on my comparisons to some of that material from Saren's flagship Sovereign, they were engineered millions of years the same people who made Sovereign!

You may not understand how important this is, but it suggests that the Citadel wasn't really made by the Protheans! It may have been made by something far older, with the keepers as organic guardians. And what's more, based on my genetic readings, they're supposed to react to...something, some signal or something...about every 50 thousand years. You can measure genetic variances; it's a bit like comparing rings on a tree to see the drought years.

Whoever did this...well, around the last time this signal went off would be around the time the Protheans disappeared. And it's scheduled to go off sometime around now. If any old tech still works, they could have some nasty surprises waiting for us.

Just thought you'd want to know. Nobody here on the Citadel will listen to me.
