A cult originating in the Asari Republics post-Reaper War, one of the new movements that attach unhealthy religious significance to the Reapers. Uniquely, though, the Dark Reflection doesn't venerate the Reapers directly; instead, the movement is motivated by grief and self condemnation among both followers of Athame and Siarists. They view the Reapers as the physical manifestation of asari hubris for either betraying the tenets of Athame or for violating the “all is one” philosophy by ensuring that the asari remained technologically and culturally dominant over other species. As such, they see the Reapers as a Dark Reflection, the ultimate form of sin, as the Reapers also used technology to manipulate and dominate the galaxy. The Reapers are seen as a force of cosmic judgement, with asari being the ultimate source for the blame.
