To all of you Vector lovers, a little something I quickly worked on a while ago:

I was a bit frustrated I couldn't see Vector's eye in the customization I chose, so I made myself a portrait of "my" Vector from that beautiful scene on the ship. <3 Enjoy

This also confused and distressed me. What I liked most about Vector's line was how confident he was in who he is - he doesn't need fixing.

He left to deal with his diplomatic stuff. Considering my agent fully supported his diplomatic endeavors, I felt pretty bad going with that option. It was still better than the line that makes it sound like the agent has a man in every spaceport. :

I still like how my agent is happy an bubbly with Vector when they are alone. Like only with him she can be herself and have some fun..
I just ran through that and it made me cry. I went with the "I love you" response, My god, She actually sounds sincere when she says it here.

Another female gamer chiming in.

Speaking in general terms, females do NOT like bugs. We squash them. We swat them. We suck them up into the vaccuum cleaners. We do not want to romance some creepy buggy dude who refers to himself in third person plural. Sure, there's more to the game than romance, but as much as I enjoy leaving behind a trail of dead bodies, I also enjoy my romance options.

Vector creeped me out so much I dumped my female IA. Even Corso's insecure jealous whining is better than creepy buggy dude.

I won't be playing a female IA until there's either a companion update, or I can have a same-sex romance. I think I"ll just roll a female bounty hunter... but I really wanted to play an IA.

Eh. I don't like bugs either. But, like I said here:

Vector's story really intrigues me and I enjoy hearing how other people are interpreting it. I just wish the "repair" comment had been explained a bit more readily. It felt like it came out of the blue. If that's why he barely spoke to me during ACT II, it would have been nice to know ahead of time that he was "working on" something during that time.

I was happy to see that in ACT III (still not done yet but getting close) he has been more vocal during cut scenes and has even been offering me advice. Feels more like the actively engaged Vector we see in ACT I.

Lawrichai, I love your work! Thanks for sharing.

I agree that making a romance companion linked with a race of giant bugs was quite a bold move by Bioware. I wish I knew how exactly the conversation in the board room went when that choice was made. But gosh, Vector charmed me from that very first flirt! I laughed out loud and thought, "I'm gonna love this guy." And the second one was even better (the bug milk one.) I wish we had seen more of the "witty Vector" throughout the story. I find his weirdness very entertaining and his awkward sincerity endearing. And he gets better with time.

I'm sorry to hear that the romance wasn't for you. i just finished the IA story and I loved it. For anyone who is on the fence about romancing Vector, I guess it depends on the type of romance you like. Personally, my type of romance is more "Nightmare Before Christmas" than "The Notebook", so I enjoyed the offbeat and quirky charm that Vector brought to the table. He is also refined, cultured, and charming- not everyone's cup of tea. I thought of my agent as someone who had been around the block so many times, had heard every pickup line (even used some herself!), and was jaded about love. She flirts with this ant-boy (standard operating procedure) and he wants to rub forearms? How intriguing!

FYI- I found I got the most out of Vector's story if I also friended Doctor Lokin. I imagine the agent accompanies them to the opera on her nights off.
