“The Milky Way was so... been-there-done-that. Even if I hadn't done it, someone had.”

Pelessaria B'Sayle, nicknamed Peebee, is an asari member of Ryder's squad. She is young for an asari, giving her age as "100 and change."

A lone wolf and adventurer at heart, she originally came to Andromeda aboard the Nexus but quickly left and went adventuring on her own before encountering Ryder's team. Intelligent but socially blunt, she decides to join them simply as a means to finding out more about the galaxy's mysteries.[1]

Peebee is a potential romantic interest for a Ryder of either gender. [2]

Background Edit

Peebee's mother had her late in life. Her father is elcor. She has at least one older half-sister, who is pureblood (according to Peebee, apart from her conception, their mother only mated with other asari). The two are five hundred years apart in age.

As a child, she was raised primarily by her mother and sister. Hailing from Port Lerama, Hyetiana, Peebee grew bored of living in the Milky Way, and joined the Andromeda Initiative with her then-girlfriend Kalinda T'Reve.

Peebee was woken from stasis very shortly after arrival by Kalinda, who was among the first wave unfrozen. Because Peebee's revival was unauthorized (the in-game Codex in Mass Effect Andromeda states she "should still be in stasis"), she lived off the grid for a period of time. Kalinda helped her to get identifying documents and access to vital resources, as well as introducing Peebee - who she fondly called "her little rogue" - to her social circle. Although Peebee enjoyed this, it became clear the relationship was emotionally abusive. Kalinda ended things on her terms and disappeared, at about the same time Peebee began studying Remnant ruins.

Mass Effect: Andromeda Edit

Ryder first encounters Peebee on Eos when she jumps onto them before the Pathfinder could access a Remnant monolith, resulting in Ryder's squadmates drawing their guns on her. After clearing up the misunderstanding, Peebee explained her interest in the monoliths. After Ryder activated all the monoliths, revealing the location of the vault, Peebee split off from the squad to do some exploring of her own. Once Ryder activated the vault, the party narrowly managed to escape the vault when it released a purification field. Afterwards, Peebee decided to join the crew of the Tempest for the time being.

Peebee later asks Ryder to acquire a Remnant device on Voeld. She later reveals her intent for the device back at her apartment on the Nexus, having reprogrammed a Remnant Observer she nicknamed Poc, short for Proof-of-concept. Unfortunately, her former friend Kalinda T'Reve barged in and became very interested in Poc.

Loyalty Edit

Peebee lures Ryder and another squadmate into one of the Tempest's escape pods and launches it without asking towards a volcanic world teeming with Remnant in order to investigate a mysterious Remnant signal. Unfortunately, Kalinda was on the same trail and had brought a group of mercenaries to beat Peebee to the Remnant device.

Romance Edit

A male or female Ryder can romance Peebee. The option to begin flirting will first appear after building an outpost on Eos; she responds favorably and will encourage it.

After giving Peebee the Remnant device from Voeld, she will send an email asking Ryder to meet her at the museum on Aya. Doing so will prompt a brief conversation, where it quickly becomes apparent she is inebriated.

Upon returning to the Tempest, the next time Ryder goes to talk to Peebee, she will be visibly unsettled and start pacing anxiously, claiming she can't get used to ship life. With a little help from SAM, she'll hit on a way to de-stress by using the escape pod as a zero-G chamber, and invite the Pathfinder in. Regardless of whether or not Ryder has flirted with her previously, Peebee will suggest "something else" that would relax her. At this point it is possible to turn her down, agree to casual sex (possible even if Ryder is pursuing someone else), or request "strings attached." Either of the latter two options can be used to pursue a romance later on. Ryder can continue to engage in "zero g flings" with Peebee until such a time as they lock into a romance with another character, at which point the flirting option that leads to the casual encounters will no longer be available.

If Ryder continues to pursue her, Peebee will admit to herself that she wants to be "more than friends, more than lovers" with them, to which Ryder can reply in kind or reject. If accepted, Peebee will open up a bit more about what Kalinda did to her after they arrived in Heleus and will eventually leave a "surprise" in Ryder's quarters. Peebee will come into Ryder's quarters and after a bit of small talk will suggest they reenact how they met. During the "reenactment" Peebee will admit that she's never melded with anyone, having never trusted herself to do it. She quietly gasps Ryder's name (surname or the default Scott/Sara) and melds with Ryder. In a silent void, Peebee tells Ryder they're one and Ryder can respond that this is a gift or can join Peebee in professing their love for the other. After, the two lie down together and Peebee says, "This is where I belong."

During Meridian: The Way Home, a romanced Peebee will ask Ryder to meet her on the Tempest bridge. The two share a tender moment before the mission continues.

After the completion of the final mission, Peebee congratulates Ryder and notes that they're being recorded for the whole cluster to see. If Ryder picks the emotional dialogue option, Peebee will kiss them, commenting that now everyone knows the human Pathfinder is taken. She receives a romance-specific dialogue option when talking to her on Meridian.

Correspondence Edit

After returning to the Tempest once the remant vault on Eos has been activated during the mission A Better Beginning:

Data Cores
To: Ryder
From: Peebee

Hey, Ryder!

Hope it's okay that I'm keeping this data core in my room (i.e., the escape pod). I guess I just really like to ponder things before bed. The best ideas come to me while I'm half asleep.

Also, I saw it first.

Anyway, we know for sure it's got some sort of data in it. The trick is how to get at it.

I'll keep you updated.


After returning to the Tempest once Ryder has revisited the Nexus after establishing Prodromos (?):

To: Ryder
From: Peebee (the peeved)

Your doctor is one of the nosiest asari I've ever met. And that's saying A LOT. She needs to take it down four or five notches, or I won't be long for this show.

Which would be too bad.

I think.

Oh, never mind!


After completing Restoring a World / obtaining a certain number of Remnant data cores (?):

Remnant Brain!
To: Ryder
From: Peebee


Okay, so... just for fun, I decided I'd blast the Remnant data core with energy to see what that would do. First used the battery off the Nomad (don't tell Gil)... nothing. Then a mass effect field (biotics--Cora helped). Still nothing. And then I took it to Jaal and made him do his biol-electricity thing.


The entire thing lit up. I caught it all on my omni-tool. Ever see synapses firing? It was like that. I mean... this data core is almost like aa tiny Remnant brain.

So that's cool.

Not sure how exactly I'm going to apply this to getting at the data, though.


If Ryder joins Peebee in zero-g in her escape pod:

So much better!
To: Ryder
From: Peebee (the chill)

Typically, I'm not the type to send mail. At least, not mail that just reflects or lingers on stuff. But I'm okay letting you know how great our float was for me. And the weird thing is, I think it was actually better with you there. Added a little bumper car whimsy.

Hmm. You might be growing on me a little. Not sure if that's good or bad. But I'm not going to ponder that right now. Wanna stay chill.


After talking to Peebee to gain Peebee: Remnant Scanner:

To: Ryder
From: Peebee (the creator)

Have to say, feeling pretty good about myself. Poc is the first thing I've made that I doubt I'll get tired of. And that's saying a TON, believe me!

Someday, when we've got this rem-tech all figured out, Poc's gonna blow people's minds.

Not sure why I decided to write this to you. Strange impulse, that. Hmm. I'll have to noodle on it a bit.


After completing Peebee's loyalty mission:

Thank you...
To: Ryder
From: Peebee (the embarrassed)

...and sorry. I shouldn't have ambushed you like that. I should have trusted that you'd be just as driven as I was to head down to Pas-10 and find the source of that signal. I should have been more collaborative, and more of a - ugh - team player.

Guess I have some growing to do. Who knew?

Heh, usually when someone says "it's not you, it's me," they're breaking up with you...

If I actually send this, please delete upon reading.
