Near the Memories of Illium store in Nos Astra on Illium, there is a krogan named Charr reciting bad love poetry to the asari merchant that runs the store. Shepard can talk to the merchant and ask about the krogan.
Walkthrough Editgenophage; although he apparently had not known these children would be asari rather than krogan, he has told her that he would love their daughters anyway. Shepard can tell the asari to make a decision, either by persuading her to take him back (via Charm, for five Paragon points), or convincing her to permanently break up with him (through intimidate, for five Renegade points). In either situation Shepard will gain forty experience points, and the asari will give Shepard a discount at Memories of Illium.
Charr's love poems Edit
“Oh Blue Rose of Illium, let your roots dig deep into the hot soil of Tuchanka. Let our scorching sun and sheeting rain turn your supple beauty into strength. For if our love is to survive, it must grow thorns to pierce the hand of any that would uproot it!”
“Blue Rose of Illium, you have blossomed in a tower of glass and plastic. But beauty under glass is untested and weak. Where are your honored dead, to fertilize the ground that you might grow strong? On the rocky plains of Tuchanka, I will build you a garden from the bones of my ancestors.”
“Blue Rose of Illium, leave eternity unembraced and grapple in the glorious struggle that is us, here and now! I am speechless, not with blood rage, but with love, and I stand here, humble and mute, to offer you a home. Come to me, Blue Rose of Illium. Let our three hearts beat as two.”
Mass Effect 3 Consequences Edit
Ereba can be seen talking in the Citadel's Presidium Commons to a "Blue Rose Customer," suggesting the store is called the Blue Rose. If the Commander encouraged the relationship, Ereba will mention her husband to the customer. Regardless of whether Shepard encouraged her to pursue the relationship, Charr will leave a last message for her.
- If Shepard convinces Ereba and Charr to stay together, they later can be seen on Tuchanka.
- In some literature, a blue rose often symbolizes feelings of love and adoration and this is used as an expression by those being overcome of such emotions, just like how Charr feels for Ereba.
