- “Five years. That's how long we waded through the seas of blood and gore. How long we suffered hell at the hands of the rachni. How long it took us to bring the fight to those bastards and avenge our fallen in a sea of blood and fire. Five years. Five years of hell.”
- —Takavor Derishma on his service in the Rachni Wars.
Chieftan Takavor Derishama was a dezba chieftan who fought in the Rachni Wars. He at the time was one of the most feared chieftans on Coralus. Known for his will to survive and insatiable thirst for blood. Derishama was easily identifable standing seven feet tall, with a blind and completely white left eye, dozens of scars, and his armor which was old dezba armor from before the Great War. He was deployed by the council in exchange for nuclear weapons. He did so but killed Foran Lieph, the son of salarian council advisor Tyrin Lieph and was killed for it.
