Mass Effect - Rebirth
Originally a small Terminus Systems vorcha gang, the Blood Pack was transformed into a mercenary legion by visionary krogan battlemaster Ganar Wrang. Exiled for striking a female in anger, Wrang obsessed over reclaiming his lost status.
Leading the vorcha pack as a pirate crew, Wrang cultivated recruits and infamy for a decade before incorporating his fighters as a security company across the Skyllian Verge. His notoriety ensured his initial public offering for investors made him rich beyond most krogan’s dreams. Wrang returned triumphantly to his clan, rallying elders, krogan hordes, and their firepower and biotic support toward professional violence in the Terminus Systems.
Banned from Citadel Space, the Blood Pack bribes its way through spaceports into armed conflicts across the galaxy. Priding themselves for accepting otherwise untouchable contracts, the Blood Pack rejects bodyguarding and security in favor of cases requiring minimal oversight and maximal violence. Blood Pack appears to be, for the most part, made entirely of vorcha and krogan members, though they also use varren as war beasts.
Seeing the potential of the vorcha’s individual adaptability, krogan Blood Pack mercenaries often sweep pockets of vorcha, gathering them up and literally beating them into soldiers. Vorcha “trained” by this ordeal are stronger, faster, smarter, and more resilient than other members of the race. Gaining even a few vorcha gives a mercenary band a formidable advantage; each additional vorcha magnifies the gang’s combat ferocity exponentially.
The Blood Pack on Omega was, until recently, led by a krogan battlemaster named Garm, who briefly conspired with the Blue Suns and Eclipse to dethrone Aria T’Loak. The Blood Pack put out a hit on her krogan adviser, Patriarch, as a means of hurting her, but the hit failed. Garm himself was killed engaging the Turian vigilante Archangel. The conquest of Omega by Cerberus a year later has effectively diminished the Blood Pack’s presence on the station.
The Blood Pack continues to be a significant force throughout the Omega Nebula, however, and has begun utilizing the fast breeding cycle of their Vorcha with the aim toward eventual military domination. If the rest of the galaxy remains cut off, it may well be that the Blood Pack will rule the nebula sometime in the next century.
