I know there is a logical reason why, but I never really dove into it. Can anyone tell me why they aren't? Along with the other non-citadel species. --Slowrider7 12:39, April 25, 2012 (UTC)
The quarians were stripped of their Citadel representation after creating the geth and unleashing a (assumed to be) violent AI on the galaxy. The batarians voluntarily left because they felt the Council was giving preferential treatment to humans. The krogan were likely stripped of their status after they rebelled. The vorcha have only recently been discovered, I believe, and certainly haven't made many friends on the Citadel. The raloi were on the path to Citadel representation but decided to cut themselves off from the galaxy after the Reapers attacked. The yahg killed the Citadel's representatives, not exactly the best way to make friends. The geth isolated themselves from the rest of the galaxy and are seen as a violent AI, no representation for them. The rachni are thought to be extinct and fought a destructive war with the Citadel races. TheUnknown285 12:48, April 25, 2012 (UTC)
So who would have been the next make-up of the Citadel? The Raloi and the Yahg? --Slowrider7 13:07, April 25, 2012 (UTC)
- It's certainly possible. Both are moving toward space-faring but (at least for the yahg) have been spared by the Reapers; so they would have a head start. Other races out there (discovered and not-discovered) could have emerged as well. TheUnknown285 22:34, April 28, 2012 (UTC)
Assuming the raloi were able to appear primative enough to fool the Reapers. Yahg were likely next in line for galactic dominance since their dominating nature and advanced tech in comparasion would have given them an advantage.
Also the vorcha are not recent additions. They have been around the Terminus Systems for a long time, but almost never in Citadel space and they have no centralised government to represent them.--Ironreaper 13:18, April 25, 2012 (UTC)
The Vorcha are also pretty violent. Its a natural thing for them to hit each other so they are quick to anger. Geth_Prototype 9:39, April 26, 2012
And they will hit each other not about just anger. It is a form of communication, like their body language.--Ironreaper 00:26, April 29, 2012 (UTC)
Another species of note: The Yahg. Although it may be a no-brainer, for those who don't already know they were never uplifted (and thus restricted to their home world) because they slaughtered the first contact team they met. Just thought I'd add that in here.
- Yeah, I don't buy that the raloi would escape the current Reaper cycle. They've already made contact with the Citadel races, sent representatives to the Citadel, etc. They're likely to have a least an inkling of what's going on, and I don't think the Reapers would want to leave witnesses.
