Link here: theory after the fold.
“The rather plausible theory is that Vetra’s father is none other than Saren Arterius, the Reaper’s envoy and lead baddie from the original Mass Effect.”
…I like this. As the article notes, the times match up, it’s a good shout-back to the original game, and given that [MORE SPOILERS] nobody in the Initiative except the Ryder kids knows that there was even a Reaper invasion in the first place it’s a secret whose revelation won’t actually have all that much effect on game play. Vetra’s last name of Nyx is an issue, but they can wiggle around that a bit; turian naming conventions are a little unclear because, you know, fictional alien race and all that.
Guess we’ll see when the DLC comes out.
PS: I get why they don’t do Day One DLC anymore, but I wish that they’d do Day 14 DLC, or something. The Witcher spoiled me.
