Sweet Tali. I have yet to encounter a single Mass Effect player who dislikes Tali’Zorah, even among the few who for one reason or another dislike the Quarians. Ash Shroka who voices Tali and reprises the role in ME2 and 3 may not be as widely known as some of her co-stars in Mass Effect but did an absolutely stellar job with Tali, especially in ME2 and ME3 where our girl gets a lot more screen time and emotional playing field.
If there is anything I might criticize about Tali it would have to be an all-around critique of the whole Quarian helmet mystique. In no way, form or fashion should that be an unknown in an advanced galactic society.
What? Any Quarians who die and get autopsied away from the fleet have the procedure done with the helmet fused to their heads? Are Quarians, in fact, the space version of the Doctor Who Chula Nanogene fusion in The Empty Child?
Are you, in fact, this girl’s mommy?
If that Who/Mass Effect crossover joke was too obscure please leave a note in the comments below!
The text in the lead shot refers to Jacob‘s less than tactful comment when she joins the Normandy in Mass Effect 2. Cerberus’ relationship with the Migrant Fleet is not a happy one at that time so perhaps that’s where his cattiness is coming from. Personally, I think it’s because Tali is better with a shotgun than Taylor and a lot more useful to do missions with.
On the other hand, he doesn’t have to drink his booze with a straw. I’m sorry an emergency induction port!
