How To Start Samara Romance

Shane Williams

This page contains all the information you need on how to begin, and keep, a romance with Samara.

Speak with Samara in the Starboard Observation room which can be found on the 3F of the Normandy.

Recruit Samara and complete Loyalty Mission

Samara can be romanced by either Male or Female Shepard and doesn’t have a romance scene. However, this romance doesn’t unlock the Paramour II Trophy. Before you begin the romance, you’ll need to recruit her by completing the mission, Dossier: The Justicar.

Once she’s on your team, you can speak with her twice to learn about her oath, then you’ll want to move on to completing her loyalty mission, Samara: The Ardat-yakshi in order to progress the romance.

During the Loyalty mission, make sure to side with Samara and kill Morinth in order to further the relationship. If you don’t then the Samara romance will no longer be a possibility.

Romance Summary

To recap:

  1. Recruit Samara by completing mission, Dossier: The Justicar.
  2. Speak with Samara.
