|Mass Effect 2|
Commander Shepard encounters Whitson while signing up for the mission against Archangel. Whitson seems very confident of his abilities in a fight and wants to sign up with the mercs despite his young age and inexperience. Shepard can dissuade Whitson from signing up.
Should Shepard stop Whitson, the Commander later receives the following email:
Should Shepard allow him to join with the mercs, Whitson will be the first freelancer killed by Archangel during the mercenary assault on Archangel's base.
- If you talked to the Merc Recruiter, used the paragon interrupt to stop Whitson from signing up, but go to the Normandy SR-2 before finishing the mission, you will still receive the message about the fight from him.
