Who is the Shadow Broker?

Maybe it's TIM. That would explain where all the funding comes from.

Definitely not.

it is NOT the illusive man.

TIM may be a terrorist, but he wants to save humanity.

the shadow broker:


is trying to sell your body to the collectors, but liara rescues your corpse. the shadow broker has ties to the reapers somehow.

its a real person, and its not illusive man. liara explains why she loves shepard so much, and in doing so, explains something very nefarious about shadow broker that proves it isnt TIM

Liara convo-spoilers

She saved you from the Shadow broker who was going to sell you to the Collectors. She gave you to Cerberus in order to have you rebuilt.

As cunning as he is, I doubt it. The Shadow Broker aided the Collectors at some point, and Cerberus was actively fighting the Collectors. So if TIM was the Shadow Broker, he was purposefully making his job of stopping the Collectors harder.

It's always possible, but I think making one character that is made to be mysterious, be another character (or one of a group of characters) that is made to be mysterious, would be pretty lame. I'd be like, "Oh, so that guy I knew next to nothing about is actually that other guy I know next to nothing about? Okay.". It wouldn't shock or surprise me, which is something I imagine Bioware wants to do with those two characters.

I think TIM's plans, and the identity of the Shadow Broker will be a little more interesting.

Maybe the Illusive Man covers his tracks by creating conflicts of interest.

However, he does say his power is "information"

just because the illusive man talks and bad mouths the shadow broker doesnt mean they cant be the same person, hell its a good alibi
