He stood by his morality and held firm to his work. 'Someone else could have gotten it wrong.' This piece is an extraordinary tribute to a lost friend and companion, whose works will never be forgotten to the Krogan people.
How he wanted to experiment on sea shells. I wish he didn't pass away like he did, but he did what was right to help. This is very beautiful and just makes me feel like he got his peace. Very nice work!
