Citadel: Family Matter revolves around a child in need of a gene therapy. Assignments are secondary quests in Mass Effect, that are not mandatory to progress the game's story, but provide context and flavor by meeting interesting NPCs of all kind of Races, granting additional experience, and letting the player visit extraordinary and unique planets.


Citadel: Family Matter Walkthrough

Talk to Rebekah to hear her story. She will tell you about, Jacob, her former husband who died recently of a rare heart condition, and how she is carrying his baby. There's a risk that the baby could also develop the same heart condition that Jacob had, and Michael Petrovsky thinks she should get the condition corrected with in-utero gene therapy. However, Rebekah disagrees. She's been reading a lot of reports that suggests this gene therapy could be dangerous, so she may decide to take another treatment, althoug less effective.

So now you are presented with a choice on what do you think she should do. 

  • The Charm option, in the "Let her choose" tree awards you 8 Paragon points and Experience Points
  • The Intimidate option, in the "Let her choose" tree awards you 9 Renegade points and Experience Points
  • The Charm option, in the "Get the gene therapy" tree awards you 8 Paragon points and Experience Points
  • The Intimidate option, in the "Geth the gene therapy" tree awards you 9 Renegade points and Experience Points


How to unlock Citadel: Family Matter

  • You can obtain Citadel: Family Matter, only after completing one of the main Mission Worlds (Feros, Noveria or Therum). When you return to the Citadel, you will find Rebekah Petrovsky and Michael Petrovsky standing next to the Rapid Transit stop, just outside Barla Von's office.
