Citadel: Hanar Diplomat Walkthrough
Head to the Human Embassy and look for Bau there. Once you talk to him he will give you an overview of what's going on. Apparently, the alliance raided a Batarian lab where Reaper tech was being studied. It turned into a massacre and the Alliance got away with nothing. There were also Hanar operatives there, and Bau believes they were indoctrinated.
You can ask him about where he got this information, and it depends on whether you completed Kasumi: Stealing Memory or not in Mass Effect 2. If you did, he will tell you that Kasumi Goto got him that information (even if she didn't survive the Suicide Mission in the previous game), if not Bau says he obtains the information from Donovan Hock.
The implicated Hanars are now members of the hanar diplomatic delegation and Bau has tracked down several suspicions between Kahje, the Hanar Homeworld, and the Citadel. Commander Shepard offers to look the inside the Spectre office.
When you enter the office if Kasumi Goto is alive, she decloaks once the door closes and offers to help you. If you helper retrieve the Graybox during Kasumi: Stolen Memory, she claims to have leaked its content regarless of the prior decision to keep or destroy the device. If it was destroyed, she claims enough clues were left to piece things together.
Bau will contact you via comm the whole Mission, as well as Kasumi Goto if she is alive. Head to the Spectre Terminal and select the Hanar Embassy Tracking option. Exit the terminal and Bau states that he is now checking security reports. Head t o the Hanar embassy to track transfers coming from there.
The NavPoint is a terminal at the Office Suite. As you activate it, you will discover strange money transfers from Bolohn and Oloon. With this information, Bau clears Bolohn, statins that the transfers are for his Asari mistress, but has his doubts about Oloon.
Kasumi, if present, will find odd that Hanar have mistresses.
You will find the next NavPoint at the Docks: Holding Area, just outside the elevator. Access it, and you will discover Oloon's activities: heavy lobbying for the Hanar to support the war effort. Bau then clears Oloon and asks who is the one opposing him. An unnamed Hanar, recently arrived from their homeworld. Head to the opposite side of the docking bay to continue.
Access the terminal on the far end of the Docks: Holding Area to contact Bau. A new list of Hanar arrivals will be forwarded to the Salarian. Bau states the list is useless since it is all face names, no soul names as the ones from the Alliance raids. He asks you to tap into their communications to learn their soul names.
Return to the terminal at the elevator. Access it to forward Bau the hanar communications. The Salarian states that he has got the name, Zymandis, a Hanar that was with the Alliance team during the raids and has been in a "special research assignment" since. Return to the embassies, and head to the office suite located on the left side of the elevator to meet Bau.
Both of you (and Kasumi if she's around), enter the office to apprehend the Hanar. You can ask him about the motivations behind this or simply arrest him right away.
Zymandis states that the defenses of his homeworld are mostly automated, and can be shut down by a single virus, which he has just uploaded. Bau quickly moves in to stop the upload, but a human standing at the door quickly chokes him as the Salarian attempts to shake him off.
If Kasumi is present, she runs up to the terminal to stop the upload. Commander Shepard knocks out the man holding Bau and Kasumi manages to stop the upload. Bau proceeds to pull out his gun and shoot the Hanar. Kasumi notices that the Hanar has rigged a failsafe, the console explodes knocking her against a wall.
If Kasumi's loyalty mission was completed in Mass Effect 2, she decloaks herself. Although Shepard won't pressure her into joining the war effort, the Commander convinces her of all the expensive tech lying around, unguarded. If you didn't complete her loyalty mission, Kasumi won't reappear.
If Kasumi isn't around, you will have to choose between saving Bau or stopping the upload.
