"The Justicar"Edit

Samara is first mentioned by Pitne For, Detective Dara and multiple other bystanders. However, Samara is first seen by Commander Shepard while she is fighting Eclipse mercs. After Samara killed the last one, she introduces herself and asked Shepard if they are a friend or foe. Samara makes a deal with the commander while she stays with the detective in the police station. With the deal being that Shepard needs to find the ship manifest for someone Samara is looking for.

After Shepard took care of the ship manifest, Samara makes a oath to Shepard to not choose between the justicar oath or Shepard's orders. Samara is then taken to the Normandy and she stays in the observation deck where is is peaceful.

"The Ardat-Yakshi"Edit

Kelly Chambers will later notify the commander that Samara wants to speak with them. She then reveals that the person she is looking for is Morinth, one of her daughters. She tells the commander that Morinth was the one who was always free but selfish.

The two of them goes to Omega to find Morinth. EDI tells them to ask Aria T'Loak about the most recent murder by an Ardat-Yakshi. Smara and Shepard meets the victim's mother and questions her. They also took a look at the victim's room. Samara now reveals to the commander that Morinth is attracted to creators and artists. They leave the apartment to lure out Morinth in the nearby VIP club.

Samara tells Shepard to go alone into the club and try to lure Morinth through her interests. Shepard manages to lure Morinth and the two of them take a seat. Shepard matches they "interests" with Morinth's. Morinth invites the commander to her aprtment nearby.

Soon after Morinth tried to trick Shepard, Samara walks into the apartment. The two fight, but they're fight gets stuck in a deadlock and Shepard must decide to help Morinth or Samara.

Falere tells her mother about Rila still being in the great hall. Falere goes over the balcony, with her mother following and telling Shepard to meet them there.

They meet each other there after fighting through reapers. Rila was revealed to be in the process of being converted into a banshee. Rila sacrifices herself to set off the bombs, only to have Falere struggling to help her sister.
