Mass Effect 2: How to Create your own 'Sexy Shepard'

Published on February 8th, 2010

In response to the massive amount of interest generated by our ‘Sexiest Shepards’ article we’ve compiled the ID numbers of everyone’s favourite avatar designs so that nobody will be stuck with a ‘plain Jane’, when they’d prefer a ‘beautiful Beth’.

Simply enter the following ID codes when you’re asked to create a character in and voilĂ  your very own version of these sultry Shepards.

Bad Ass: Don’t mess with this diva of destruction, she’ll tear you in half with her sultry blue eyes and pale complexion. There’s a hint of Kate Beckinsale in there with a fully enabled ‘Underworld’ sense of style and menace.

ID number: 551.AFW.FGE.421.4H7.17K.DVH.7D4.LA1.GC7.2F6.312

Blondie: She may look a bit ‘plastic fantastic’ but she’s sure to please all you Barbie fanboys out there. We do wonder at what point in humanity’s future hair will be replaced by straw, however there’s definitely a Sarah Chalke vibe to this blonde bombshell.

Natural Born Redhead: We’ve always been a sucker for a redhead and this girl’s bound to get some attention. She has a traditional look of beauty which you reminds us of any movie babe circa 1950′s. As a result she’s exceptionally hard to recreate, but thankfully the code is listed below.

Ice Queen: The final pick of the bunch just shows how powerful BioWare’s character creator really is and we doubt anyone reading this can resist importing those deep brown eyes into their game. We found this design to imbue much more personality than the others, plus she kind of scares us a little.

Feel free to email us your own designs and we’ll add them to our lovely site with full accreditation to you. If they are really good you may be in for a shout in this month’s submission competition where entrants can win a game of their choice. Fancy that!

UPDATE: If you’re looking for more ideas on creating a sexy Shepard, we’ve also just found about Mass Effect 2 Faces, a database where you can add your own avatar, complete with ID codes, so you can get some great ideas from there too. (Don’t then submit them as ideas here though, please.)

      What preset do you start out with when creating ice queen?

      Maybe seeing that they take time for the PC version, They could probably take the time for consoles as well

      Both badass and ice queen don’t seem to work for me. ended up with someone else.

      The code for Ice Queen is completely wrong but after ages of searching I finally found it on Mass Effect 2 Faces Database:

      How do I input these codes in for PS3?

    11. Posted by Thane Krios on February 19th, 2014, 00:47

      98% of the code for Shepard (Female / Male) at come from the Xbox and are not compatible with the PC version, the faces differ to 99%.

      “Blondie” has brown, “Ice Queen” has gray and “Natural Born Redhead” black hair.

      Have to “” the people rejected then, to write to if the code from the Xbox or PS come.

      The comments were always deleted by the creator, some even wrote me to take care of my own stuff.

      Conclusion to the page for consoles is super page, but for PC users, it is a shithole.

      I don’t understand why the “Ice Queen” girl looks so pretty & smooth in the screenshot here but looks like an ugly mess on the character creation screen.
      Did someone do some special rendering work for that screenshot? Not cool.

      ROFL, never mind, I have come to realize that this article is messed up! There are mixed up names, pictures & descriptions and the codes are wrong.
