Recruit the Veteran (DLC Character)
As you move down the corridor you will notice a human beating up a Batarian. This unorthodox figure is your first recruit. You learn that his name is Zaeed Massani, a legendary mercenary that Cerberus has recruited to help your cause. Pursue the conversation and allow him to return to the ship. You can now go back to the dock and switch out Jacob or Miranda, or leave your squad as it is. Zaeed is essentially a soldier, with powerful assault capabilities such as Concussive Shot. There is also a side-mission associated with him, but it requires taking the Normandy somewhere else, so we should leave it for now.
