Why is it whenever someone says "with all due respect" they really mean "kiss my ass"?
— Ashley Williams

Ashley Madeline Williams is a human soldier who served in the Systems Alliance as a Gunnery Chief in the 2nd Frontier Division on Eden Prime, and was later assigned to Commander Shepard's squad after Saren Arterius' attack on Eden Prime.

Coming from a long line of Alliance soldiers, Ashley followed the family tradition and joined the military after graduating high school. She has shown proficiency with the standard-issue M7 Lancer assault rifle and light to standard-weight combat hardsuits and was noted for her steadfast endurance and aggressive instincts. Despite glowing recommendations, Ashley was denied further opportunities for advancement.

Ashley was stationed on Eden Prime during Saren's attack, during which she lost her entire squad was wiped out. She managed to survive, however and was later rescued by Shepard's squad while on their mission to retrieve the Prothean beacon that was recently uncovered. After the attack, she joins Shepard's crew on the SSV Normandy. During the assault on Saren's base on Virmire, Ashley becomes separated from the rest of the squad and gets pinned down by geth soldiers. Shepard can choose to save her but at the cost of Kaidan Alenko. If Ashley survives, she continues to serve on the SSV Normandy until it was destroyed during a superise Collector attack which killed Shepard. Ashley would have a brief encounter with Shepard a year later after they were revived by the Lazarus Project, though she distrusted her former Commander, fearing that Cerberus might have brainwashed them.

During the Reaper War she was once again placed under Shepard's command but was critically injured during their mission on Mars by a Cerberus infiltration unit disguised as Alliance scientist Dr. Eva. She was swiftly stabilized, however, and was brought to Huerta Memorial Hospital on the Citadel. During her stay, she was granted the position of Specter by Councilor Udina. Just as she fully recovered, Cerberus attempted to stage a coup and she was tasked with protecting Udina, who was secretly working with Cerberus. Shepard eventually caught up with her, leading to a tense confrontation which either ended in Ashley getting killed or being talked down. Should she survive, Ashley could once again serve under Shepard or join the team of Admiral Hackett. Should Shepard activate the Crucible, Ashley presumably continues to serve as a Specter but presumably dies otherwise.

One of the COG soldiers overhears a conversation and warns Samantha who orders the COG with the Longshot Sniper to take to the high ground to confirm it's Shepard's team mate. The Sniper climbs up a rocky hill and spots Ashley Williams and 4 Alliance Marines who are awaiting for a shuttle from the Normandy to land and pick them up.

Expert's Opinion

In the end Ashley Williams dominated in the Majority of X-Factors such as

  • Training
  • Armor Metallurgy
  • and Logistics

Ashley also dominated in the Close Range, Long Range, and Explosive Categories but the most important factor was Ashley Williams's armor that proved to be more tougher and protected more of her body failing in combat only failing 2.5% of the time compared to Samantha's armor that failed 97.5% as it wasn't tough and only protected a small amount of her body. That and Ashley's weapons were more better in shape as they never jammed and were reliable compared to the more unreliable weapons that Samantha wielded.

Reason

The battle was declared invalid because she was given weapons and armor from Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 3 despite the fact that the weapons and armor from Mass Effect 1 were canonically no longer in use by the time Mass Effect 3 took place.
