Ahhh, so she started out with an eyepatch for you... wonder how she lost the use of that eye in your headcanon for her backstory.
For me, to my shame I let my shepherd have the default name of "Jane" when I first played, back before I really got into her head, then I was stuck with it for three games until I just recently went through them all again with a new Shephard, this one with the name Robin... it's a name that has meaning to me personally, didn't even think about a middle name though...
Interested to see just what other things turn up for this... meme? Or personal retrospective of sorts?
In my headcanon, she lost her eye on Mindoir. She lost her dad in the first wave of Batarian attacks (he was part of the colonial militia). She and her mother were taken by the Batarians, but in the process of fighting back, her mother (a medic for their colony) was killed. Enraged by losing such a high value slave, the raid leader took it out on Alex. I'll spare the gory details, but that's where she lost her eye and gained the scar, when she escaped she took two eyes of the Batarian raid leader in revenge.
