"We have no beginning. We have no end. We are infinite." *Spoilers*

"We have no beginning. We have no end. We are infinite."

"We are eternal. The pinnacle of evolution and existence. Before us, you are nothing. Your extinction is inevitable. We are the end of everything."

"We are each a nation. Independent, free of all weakness."

For a Reaper created to preserve organic life, these quotes make no sense. Sovereign is so smug towards organics, the very beings its supposed to ultimately help. The Reapers are apparently not completely independent. And they are most certainly not eternal.

So annoying.

Bioware obviously had a different view of the Reapers before the last five minutes of the game.

Oh no someone is egotistical and couldn't back it up.

Currently waiting for it to be called a plot hole.

Saying the Reapers are "independent" only to have a magic AI tell us he controls them is a plot hole.

The Reapers started out as the best villains ever. Where did they go?! They were destroying the galaxy and somehow got WAY less cool.

Please, by all means, reconcile the quotes with ME3's revelations. I don't want there to be any inconsistencies.

They don't seem to age, before them, you were nothing, the only thing you can challenge there is them getting caught with the ID4 weakness. The preserve organic life by killing everyone, despite anything you might say or do. How do those quotes not make sense?
