'Mass Effect' (2007-2012)

We see Liara as much more than a simple love interest for Commander Shepard—she's also a way for players to connect with the game's alien races on a deeper level. We never thought we'd be able to feel so many feels for a blue squid-head lady, but then Liara came along and stole our hearts. And our guns, and then she shot us for calling her a squid-head.
