Mass Effect 2
Amanda was mentioned in a broadcast from the Cerberus Network
: She became known for her discovery that the Mass Relays
are in fact predating the Protheans
, who were believed to have constructed them.
frees her from a Batarian prison, she reveals a project designed to slow down the impending Reaper
invasion. The plan was to force an asteroid into the Alpha Relay, the designated target for the Reapers. The explosion, caused by the destruction, would annihilate an entire solar system but subsequently prolonging the countdown of the Reapers' arrival. This vision was given to her through a Reaper artifact, but she was also gradually indoctrinated into a point in which she pulled the plug on the project and even attempted to stop Shepard from completing it.
