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?
My Miranda's Dad Theory
That would be an interesting turn out.
Imagine in ME3 if you actually get to confront the Shadow Broker yourself. It turns out to be Miranda's father - and she turns on you to protect him despite her hatred toward him. That would be a crazy twist, haha.
""If you think about it, the very first scene in Mass Effect 2 reveals who Mirandas father is. Miranda is the only person I've seen with the Illusive man without "being holographic", wich makes it look like she in the same room from wherever the Illusive Man is broadcasting from. I think I can remember she saying something like, "no one has ever met the Illusive Man face to face before". It wouldn't surprise me if the Illusive Man is also the shadow broker.
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.
Plus I'm pretty sure The Illusive Man isn't the Shadow Broker either. Seeing as when you ask him at the start about Liara T'Soni, he states that his intelligence says she's working for the Shadow Broker... which we later find out is not the case.
The Miranda's dad theory makes the most sense out of all the ones suggested so far.
Miranda is not the Illusive Man's daughter, and here's why:
@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
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:
- The Geth
- The Council
- 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.
I find it hard to believe that Miranda was able to hide her sister from her father if he was the Shadow Broker. Remember he wasn't even the one to find her; it was her old friend secretly returning her sister. That whole scenario would weaken the Shadow Broker's position in the universe. Also, it wouldn't make much sense if the Illusive Man was her father as End_Boss points out.
I like creamypies theory but I would think more specifically, the Shadow Broker is an agent of the reapers, either from the beginning or he/she/they were "recruited." That's how the reapers work. They interact with the species they intend to conquer, through proxies like Saren, Benezia, the Collectors and the Geth until they absolutely have to expose themselves. I wouldn't be surprised if they have agents on the Council and the Alliance that are responsible for the cover up after the Battle of the Citadel.
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.
" @GioVANNI said:I saw a couple Hanar on the citadel but I never was able to find one that would actually talk to me this game.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. "
" The Shadow Broker is obviously that hanar preaching about the Enkindlers. "
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.
