Mass Effect 3 was the culmination of nearly five years of storytelling. Ending the debate aside, Bioware has delivered a satisfying send-off to many of the beloved characters players have come to love throughout the RPG trilogy. However, some can bite the dust. One of those characters is the scientist Salarian: Mordin Solus.
Most of the time, Mordin sacrifices himself to cure genophage, a disease that has affected the war-hungry Krogan for centuries. However, it is actually possible to prevent Mordin from dying and make him a war asset against the Reapers. To meet the criteria for saving Mordin’s life, you’ll have to do a few things in all three games. Here’s what you need to do to save everyone’s favorite Salarian.
