Who is the Observer in Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker
During the Lair of the Shadow Broker, players will take the mission “Investigate the Observer”. In this quest, Shepard will try to discoverthe identity of one of the Broker’s top operatives.
Liara’s aide Nyxeris will provide several individuals who they think to be the Observer at the outset of the quest. Shepard will go through data records sealed behind firewalls to obtain the knowledge required.
Who the Observer is in Mass Effect 2’s storyline may or may not ever be revealed, depending on the number of evidence players gather.
Unfortunately, the information acquired about the Observer does not match any of the suspects. Shepard will discover this after properly decrypting the Data Points. In the last Data Point, gamers will discover that the gender of the Observer is female. None of the suspects are women, which means something is wrong. So, you will go to Liara and tell her that none of the suspects fit the memo.
After Shepard tells Liara this info, the Observer is revealed to be Nyxeris.
Observer Discovery Aftermath
Upon learning of Nyxeris’ betrayal, Liara will immediately put an end to her. She will praise her talent but remark that she should have trained using her barriers more. If the data could not be adequately decrypted, the false information would result in the senseless killing of one of the suspects. Nyxeris would go unnoticed. If Liara leaves for home before one of these things happens, Nyxeris will leave the frame and will never come back.
As Mass Effect 2’s Observer, Nyxeris raises another issue, and that is what her instructions were. It seems that she would want to maintain her superior’s (The Shadow Broker) standing for as long as possible. It was clear that Liara’s plan to kill the Broker posed a threat to that objective. However, Liara is still alive in Mass Effect 3. It does not matter if the player finds Nyxeris guilty or not.
