The Assassin: Salarian Family Data

This mission can be initiated by picking up a datapad in Thane’s Recruitment mission - Dossier: The Assassin (see the walkthrough page for the exact location).

To complete the mission, you will need to find someone who has lost some precious family data. After returning to the main portion of Illium, you can find a Salarian talking about this very issue on a cell phone. He can be found at the base of the stairs in the security office located between the main trading floor and the transportation area.

Hand over the datapad to complete the task.

The Justicar: Smuggling Evidence

This side-quest can be picked up, and completed, during Samara’s recruitment mission - Dossier: The Justicar . During the mission, you’ll locate a datapad which you can either hand in to Pitne For, the Volus, for some Renegade points or to Detective Anaya for some Paragon points.

Follow the walkthrough on the relevant page for the exact details.

The Justicar: Stolen Goods Found

This side-quest can be picked up, and completed, during Samara’s recruitment mission - Dossier: The Justicar . During the mission, you’ll locate a terminal entitled ’ Shipping Details ’ which you have the option to either transmit the information to Thax or do nothing.

Transmitting the information will earn you Renegade points, whilst keeping it to yourself will earn you some Paragon points. The task will be completed the next time you re-visit Illium.

The Prodigal: Lost Locket Found

This mission can be initiated by picking up a datapad in Miranda’s loyalty mission - The Prodigal (see the walkthrough page for the exact location).

To complete the mission, you will need to find someone who has lost a valuable trinket. This is actually quite easy to do. The individual you want to talk with is an Asari speaking on her phone about this very situation. She is located right on the path from the Normandy docking platform to the trading area.

Liara: System Hacking

During your conversation with Liara T’Soni, she will hint that she has a task that she might need help with. Offer to help her and she will give you the task. She wants you to head over to the transportation hub and hack a series of terminals to gather some data.

There are three starting terminals in the area and by hacking the first terminal, another vulnerable terminal will appear nearby. You are given a minute to track town and interact with the second terminal before it becomes inaccessible and you have to start again. Fortunately, you can use the proximity meter that appears in the bottom right corner of the screen to track down where the terminal is.

Once you have hacked all three terminals and interacted with the second panels, return to Liara and the task will be completed.

The Observer

After completing Liara’s previous side-task System Hacking, she’ll give you another task to track down and hack a further five terminals. Each of these terminals will give you a brief bit of information and using all of the information together, you need to identify which of Liara’s agents is a spy.

The terminals are located at the following locations:

  • Just outside of Liara's office.
  • At the trading booth just to the left after leaving Liara's office.
  • At the trading booth closest to the Normandy's docking area.
  • On the large blue screen to the right of the Serrice Technology shop.
  • In the Eternity night club.

Once you have all five bits of information you can call Liara and let her know who you think is guilty. The correct answer is "None of the suspects fit'. Choose this option for some Paragon points. However, if you want some Renegade points, you can choose any one of the other suspects.

Whichever way you choose the mission will be completed. You can also go and chat with Liara once again for a monetary reward.

Blue Rose of Illium

This assignment is located just by the shop - Memories of Illium - located by the transportation hub. You’ll know you are in the right spot when you hear a Krogan reciting poetry to an Asari.

Essentially you need to sort out the relationship between the two. Speak to the Krogan first to get the low-down. Afterwards, you can speak to the Asari and either convince her to take the Krogan back, which will net you some Paragon points, or to dump him for good for some Renegade points.

Either way, once a decision has been made, the mission will be complete.

Gianna Parasini

This mission is very brief and all takes part within a couple of conversations. You need to speak with the Asari merchant at the Serrice Technologies booth at the trading floor of Illium. Use your Renegade/Paragon conversation options to ask for a discount.

Once you have the discount unlocked, return to her later and choose the ’ Special Items’ conversation option.

As soon as she gives in to let you have the new items, a scene will play and Gianna will show up to bust her. This will also end the mission.

Indentured Service

For this assignment, you need to locate an Asari speaking quite loudly with a Quarian in the Eternity bar on Illium. Once you have located the pair, head over and speak to them to see what their problem is.

After the conversation, walk over and speak to the Synthetic Insights representative nearby. You need to navigate the conversation and convince her to take on the Quarian.

Once she has agreed, return to the initial quest givers and give them the good news to end the task.

Medical Scans

For this assignment, you need to locate a human colonist located outside the Baria Frontiers shop located in the transportation hub area of Illium. She will recognise you and instigate a conversation to ask for your help with a medical situation.

After the conversation, walk over and speak to Erinya in the Baria Frontiers shop. You need to get through the conversation and convince her to reduce medical checks. Once she has agreed, return to the initial quest giver and give her the news to end the task.
