Thane Krios is a drell assassin, rumored to be the most skilled in the galaxy. Unlike most assassins, who prefer to snipe their targets from a distance, Thane prefers to get up close and kill his target personally, utilizing a mixture of stealth, firearms, hand-to-hand combat and biotic abilities.
Despite his profession, Thane is a deeply spiritual man who prays for success in his missions. Thane asks for forgiveness after each kill, even going as far as to ignore those in his immediate vicinity until he is finished doing so. Thane is a possible romantic interest for a female Shepard.

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 of kinetic barriers does not protect against extremes of temperature, toxins, or radiation. Was inflicted with Kepral's syndrome which weakened his fighting capabilities. Kepral's Syndrome makes it difficult for him to breath correctly in humid environments for long periods of time. Long term exposure to such environments can cause damage to the lungs, other organs, and eventually death.
