So I have a theory about who Miranda's Fatther is. It's the Shadow Broker. They leave him out of the picture just like in ME1. There is also the connection that Liara is somehow involved with the Shadow Broker as well as it pertains to Shepard. They say Miranda's Father is powerful and I think it is all going to come full circle in ME3. What's your theory about this?

I could totally see that happening. I never thought about it until now but it does make sense.

I mean you probably have to interact directly with the Shadow Broker in ME3 because they've talked about him so much that it would be odd if they didn't do anything with that. Your theories pretty good and I could totally see that happening.

Also, I am more for the Barla Von theory - that the Shadow Broker is a collective, not a single being. It could as well be the Reapers.

If Miranda's father is the Shadow Broker, and the Shadow Broker is the Illusive Man, why would she continue to work for the Illusive Man even though she detests him, and she stole his daughter from him. Plus Miranda obviously knows what her father looks like so it would be illogical for her to work for him. Plus then Liara would have stolen Shepard to give him back to the man who was going to sell him to the Collectors in the first place, and there would be no story then. I really can't see the Illusive Man and Shadow Broker being the same person unless there is a crazy plot twist in ME3.

Miranda is not the Illusive Man's daughter, and here's why:

As interesting as the idea might be, I think you're barking up the wrong tree.

@End_Boss: Fair point there. I dunno then. The Shadow Broker could be anybody. It's probably just a character we ain't met yet.

@End-Boss: I don't think it would be a serious blow to the fiction if that ends up happening. He could be famous and still be the guy that no one expected him to be. It just makes sense for it to be that way to tie up all the loose ends in all three games. Especially seeing as everyone knows everyone else in the galaxy! :P

Shepard is the Shadow Broker without even knowing it.

Did that guy ever show up in ME2? I kept en eye out for him expecting he'd be some sort of hanar pope by now.  Never saw him.

Yeah, I think the Miranda's dad theory is probably the best so far. He probably isn't Illusive Man because of the Shadow Broker and Cerberus's previous rivalries. However, I do suspect it is someone we've heard about, so here is a list of possible Shadow Brokers: 

  1. The Geth
  2. The Council
  3. Commander Anderson

You know what all of this is really interesting, but what I find more interesting is all the spoiler warnings inside posts, I'd have thought anyone looking at this thread would have at least a decent amount of ME2 knowledge; personally I didn't read any forums stuff about ME2 til I'd finished it

 It's an interesting theory but I hope it isn't true.

@FelixLighter: yeah but if we break down information in that game to that level, all of it is ridiculous. I mean, Shepard's friends all give his email out to everyone, and everyone you meet seems to know he was coming anyways lol. i don't think it weakens the Shadow Broker at all for the simple reason that she told a really good friend and he couldn't keep a secret.

Here's my theory: Miranda's father is the CREEPIEST GUY IN THE GALAXY. 
 
Seriously, "My father made me anatomically correct". Now, another woman? I can see that. But didn't anyone else picture some bald-on-top creepy guy analysing the head-to-toe perfect body of his OWN DAUGHTER?! 
 
Creepy stuff BioWare, srsly.

I saw a couple Hanar on the citadel but I never was able to find one that would actually talk to me this game.

I always thought that Aria was the shadow broker.  I mean, it just kind of fits because she always has a lot of info when you talk to her on Omega.

The Shadow Broker is no one person but rather a group of powerful individuals seeking to exert their influence while simultaneously avoiding exposure.  One of these individuals will end up becoming a member of your crew in ME3.  After you complete both his/her and Liara's loyalty missions, a cutscene will trigger where you have to calm them both down or risk losing loyalty with one of them.
