This is your first in-game look at the new default female Commander Shepard, fresh off the public auction block and replacing the old standard model.
On the plus side? She looks older than she did in the promo material and she also looks like more of a character this time around; I'd always felt the old default was an afterthought, looking so blank that she may as well have been an NPC.
On the down side? Loads of people got used to that NPC face, so this will all be quite a shock for them.
