Mostly to start the Reaper reproduction method we witness with the Human-Reaper.
I caught most of that from the game, but:

Why? Why a human form for what basically is a synthetic, interstellar roaming creature? The last Reapers don't look much like Protheans, if the whole reproductive angle is true. Why only human genetics when there are multiple other species? I shudder to think it is simply the human-superior stance of sci-fi. Why were they building this beyond the Omega 4 relay when the bulk of the Reapers were slowly drifting towards the galaxy?
I've become
A simple souvenir of someone's kill
And like the sea
I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
oh, how I'm breaking down
