The introduction of EDI to the Mass Effect series in game two was a fine move by Bioware. While character introductions are always risky moves (Jar Jar Binks anyone?) EDI was a great character and she was able to be utilised to explore some great sci-fi concepts and discussions about the role of an A.I. She was so popular that ME3 saw EDI come a character you could take with you on missions.

EDI provided to be a visual feast of beauty but a lot of hard work went into designing her. Here’s some early concept work from conceptual artist Matt Rhodes who recently posted his designs on his site.
