Fun Fact Friday

Since posting a slew of Mass Effect fanart, a lot of people have assumed that Roland's last name was inspired from the games, named after the infamous Commander Shepard. After doing some digging, I've found that Roland's first OCT app was from 2012, and it looks like I didn't actually start playing Mass Effect until 2014.
So, if you can believe it, Roland Sheppard's last name is an entire coincidence and has no relation to any and all Commander Shepards.
(He would also be TERRIBLE because he doesn't want to fight anyone and doesn't want to romance anyone. All he would do is buy fish and a space hamster.)
