He is a human war hero and the original captain of the SSV Normandy, before he was relieved of command of the starship by Donnel Udina, and it was transferred to Jane Shepard's command. He is also the love interest of Kahlee Sanders.
He is one of the most accomplished, well-respected, and most decorated special forces operatives in the Alliance, and the first to graduate from the N7 marine program at Arcturus Station, serving with honor in the First Contact War.
By the events of Galactic Civil War, he is promoted to the rank of Admiral of the Systems Allance navy, and joins as a temporary squad mate early. He appears dressed for battle in fatigues that would not reflect his rank but also wouldn't look out of place in a battlefield.
"I know Saren. I know his reputation, his politics. He believes humans are a blight on the galaxy. This attack was an act of war."
- —Captain David Anderson.
