|~ Saren trying to convince Shepard to join the Reapers|
Saren Arterius, born 2139, is the longest serving Turian member of the Spectres, the elite operatives answering directly to the Citadel Council. For 24 years, he has been an agent of the Council's will, a zealous defender of galactic stability in the unsettled border region of the Skyllian Verge.
Official records of Spectres are sealed, but it is known that Saren followed Turian tradition and entered the military at the age of 15. In 2155, he was promoted to active service after only a year of training, though it is unclear whether his unit was involved in any of the battles against human forces during the First Contact War of 2157.
In 2159, he became the youngest Turian ever accepted into the Spectres. Intelligent, cunning and capable, Saren quickly developed a reputation for ruthless efficiency. Although there were a number of unsettling rumors concerning the brutality of his methods, there was no denying his results.

Attack Potency: At least Wall level with mass accelerator weaponry (Slugs fired by mass accelerator weapons can reduce large chunks of rock wall to rubble in a couple dozen rounds as demonstrated by the YMIR mech during the assignment N7: Mining the Canyon) at least Large Building level with physical strikes (Comparable to Commander Shepard), City Block level to City Block level+ with Grenades; Multi-City Block level with biotics/tech abilities (Both subsets of powers are roughly comparable. Biotics are shown to be powerful enough to completely halt the movements of the Human-Reaper via Stasis. Also, a fodder Asari Soldier was more than capable of erecting a biotic barrier able to withstand multiple high explosives from a Gun Ship on Thessia [Said high explosives should at least be comparable to the mass accelerator cannon of the Mako or High Explosive Rounds from the first game (Said weaponry is capable of incinerating human sized objects at the edge of their detonation radius)])

Intelligence: Extremely high. A talented and ruthless Spectre. Was one of the best.
Weaknesses: Kinetic barriers fail to deflect attacks with a high enough energy to surface area ratio (Can safely deflect high-velocity projectiles in-universe, but fail to be effective against in-universe melee attacks and directed energy weapons). The shielding afforded by kinetic barriers does not protect against extremes of temperature, toxins, or radiation. Indoctrinated and under the Reaper's control. | Completely insane and in a berserker state.
