 On the left
Middle is Jacob Taylor, and right is Miranda Lawson, for those who weren't aware of Mass Effect Galaxy, like me.

Volus cannot be outside of their suits when they are not on their home planet.

i always wondered that and the guy on the top left

I wonder how Cerberus managed to turn Jacob into a black man after the events of Galaxy. A side of effect of new biotic implants, perhaps?

Jacob looks pretty bad. Miranda looks pretty bad. All of that is pretty bad.

Is that dude in the middle seriously meant to be Jacob? Uh...Awkward.

Well, it's obviously not Jacob. It's supposed to be a Batarian named Jath'Amon.
 
One minor problem though:
 

 This is a Batarian. I don't know wtf happened.
 
Edit: Okay, so it could be an old Batarian. His eyes seem to be way too high up though.

What does? I don't get this. Moderately worthy of maybe the thought of laughter, but they are making two completely different faces. And fuck the people who drew these characters. Especially that third one on the right. 
 
God damn this game looks horrible. Thanks for answering me, people, so I don't have to play this.

They probably figured Jacob was way too nice in ME2, so he must be light-skinned.

The ME2 character models for Jacob and Miranda are based on the voice actors' actual faces. EA probably didn't want to pay for their likenesses in this game.

What is this?

Galaxy came out before the character designs for Jacob and Miranda had been finalized. They went with what they had at the time. Miranda didn't change too much, but Jacob ended up being changed a little more.  I know this because I met and talked with one of the lead artists for Galaxy this past summer at a convention.
 
And yes, I have the game, that is an old Batarian Ambassador attempting to make peace between his people and the rest and bring his race back to the Citadel.

Guess this is just a case of not knowing what the final look would be, rather than an artist taking a different interpretation of something already established. Personally, I don't mind the different look at all.

No, Volus can't be out of their suits.
 
Edit: Really a Batarian? He looks nothing like one at all....

I have no idea how that is a Batarian at all. Yay for universe discrepancies
