Kal!
The man they call Kal!
He would whip out his rockets and leave his foes on the floor.
Stood up to the geth and he gave them what for.
Our love for him now, ain't hard to recall,
The hero of Rannoch, the man they call Kal!
Now Kal saw the Quarians achin'.
He saw the Quarian's pain.
And he saw the rogue geth takin'
Their homeworld and leavin' them shame.
So he said, "You can't do that to my people!"
"You can't crush them under your heel."
Kal strapped onto his back,
A heavy weapons pack,
And listened to those bastard robots squeal.
He would whip out his rockets and leave his foes on the floor.
Stood up to the geth and he gave them what for.
Our love for him now ain't hard to recall,
The Hero of Rannoch, the man they cal Kal.
Now here is what separates heroes
From common folk like you and I.
The man they call Kal,
Would call you his pal,
And for you, he'd be willing to die.
He fought geth on Haestrom.
He fought geth colossi.
The man they call Kal
He survived it all,
And shouted out "KEELAH SE'LAI!"
Here we go!
He would whip out his rockets and leave his foes on the floor.
Stood up to the geth and he gave them what for.
Our love for him now ain't hard to recall,
The Hero of Rannoch, the man they call Kal!

His pose reminds me of unit 01 from Neon Genesis Evangelion.

You can talk him out of fighting at all. That way it doesn't matter how long you take. Also, I know it's a typo but... "fat enough"? *Snicker*

I love this cartoony style. It's something I've been trying to pull off in my sketches but I can't do it properly. One of the favourite minor characters by far!

Awesome drawing!

I can see the Vera trade going in reverse for Kal and Shepard: "Here's a huge machine-gun I found on a Collector ship, can I have Tali?"

Kal'Reegar is one impressive qurian. He is observant, well informed, knows politics, knows military matters and is determined.
He is my favorite non recruit-able qurian.

Holy....I just realized something!!!!! My GOD! Turians have more in common than their diets! The hands, feet and legs are similar too! Maybe Tali's face looks like a......turian female? What?

I was beginning to think I was the only one who realized this. Bioware has dropped few hints about their anatomy. The one I remember is when Grunt says, something about how soft the other races are, except Quarians "not so much." Quarians may be a race separated from the Turians, but have distinct features different from Turians, tho that probably wouldn't be their exoskeleton...

Hehe, besides that, this is a really nicely colored pic and I love how you've done his feet; they almost look like hands.

(Needs moar Vera! Also, I'm glad I'm not the only one that got the New Canton possible-reference.)
