We have a payload to deliver to the heart of our nearest star. We are delivering that payload cause that star is dying and, if it dies, we die, everything dies. So that is our mission, there is nothing, literally nothing, more important than completing our mission. End of story.

Cortez because he's got a really sympathetic backstory, i love the relationship with shepard, and although I like Traynor she never seemed as developed or fleshed out as cortez.

Cortez. His friendship with James is awesome and provides a lot of great development and fun moments for both guys (vs. Traynor not really interacting with anyone besides Shepard and a little bit of EDI/Allers). The dead husband storyline and post-grief character arc is thematically appropriate, genuinely compelling, and surprisingly well fleshed out. They actually manage to give Cortez a lot of depth with it in a relatively short amount of time. The obvious surface level grief stuff is there, but it’s also pretty clear that Cortez has given up on wanting to be alive at first; he’s mildly suicidal at worst and checked out on life at best. Moving on from his husband also puts a pretty big emphasis on everything he does have to live for, like his friendships with James + Shepard, his life as a soldier and the people he helps, etc.

Given he’s pretty clearly sidelined and treated as something of an expendable character, lots of development packed into him in a relatively short period of time. Also, he’s so damn likeable. (Probably a mix between the voice actor and just being an extremely nice guy going through a tough time).
