Line of Sight: Infiltrator

Commander Nathan Shepard – N7 Infiltrator

Both of his parents were in the Alliance military. Nathan spent his childhood on ships and stations as they transferred from posting to posting, never staying in one location for more than a few years. Following in his parents’ footsteps, Nathan enlisted at the age of eighteen.

Early in his military career Nathan found himself facing an overwhelming enemy force. He risked his own life to save his fellow soldiers and defeat the enemy despite the impossible odds. Shepards bravery and heroism have earned him medals and recognition from the Alliance fleet. He almost single-handedly repelled an attack by batarian slavers on Elysium, earning the Star of Terra, the Alliance’s highest honor.

Commander Nathan Shepard, N7 Infiltrator

Overview

Commander Nathan Shepard is a modest N7 specialist, who always puts the well-being of his fellow soldiers before his own life. He has some respect for mercenaries, as long as they engage in honorable work, like guard duty, protection or security. But when criminals threaten the life of innocent people, Shepard can be quite vicious.

Line of Sight: Infiltrator – Season 3

Between the seasons I made a Special about the most intense love interest Shepard could have, the Jack Love Story. While working on that Special, I had to rethink my work flow of leveling out and enhancing the volume levels of the scenes. I described the various struggles when doing more than just a “simple” Let’s Play movie in the post “Making a Mass Effect Special – It’s Laborious“.

But the work involved made me rethink my tooling. I wrote two small programs to help me with optimizing the volume levels, so I am a lot faster now.

From LoSI Season 3 on this new tooling is used, and the audio levels should be much more convenient to the viewer. Enjoy!
