Re: Mass Effect 3
Just reading through some of the Leviathan data it looks like the DLC will have you tracking the thing down to an asteroid. Presumably a geothermically active ice moon since there's mention of riding a submersible. This goes a long way to explain the reapers' form if the first race was a naturally aquatic species like the Hanar.
If Leviathan is the original reaper then it'd make sense for it to return to it's natural habitat. One wonders if the reapers share more than just their original shape, but their actual size too. I wonder what kind of planetary ecosystem could possibly have evolved and indeed support a 2km long, sentient cephalopoid? I think it'd have to be a relatively low gravity planet in relation to it's surface area or an ocean composed of something other than water to give greater buoyancy. Naturally the oceans would have to be *very* deep. I'm by no means an expert in astrophysics, but is is possible for a planet to form somewhere between the size of a super-earth and a gas giant and be encased in a very large volume of liquid? A super ice moon?
I don't think they were always 2km long . . . the human reaper at the end of ME2 was gigantic in relation to normal humans, so it wouldn't necessarily be logical to assume the sovereign type reapers were always that large
I don't think the largest reapers necessarily represent any past species, but are more of a distillation of species the reapers have 'preserved'
