At the first phase of the party, she's hanging out with Liara and Samantha Traynor in the kitchen, seated in a counter with a drink in hand and responding either drunkenly or soberly depending on the party's setting. After inquiring about her well-being, she reassures him by saying that her system has adapted to physical "contact" with him. After speaking to Vigil , Tali is saddened by what happened to the Protheans —like her people, the Protheans tried to fight back against the machines, but eventually lost everything. Following the destruction of the Reaper on Rannoch, the geth are weakened and Admiral Han'Gerrel launches a full strike. She thanks Shepard for this, saying that Quarians are treated as second-class citizens by other races and Shepard is the first to treat her as an equal. The Mass Effect series is all about choice and making players feel like they are playing a role, not merely witnessing one from a third-person perspective. Some players are fine with leaving her appearance a mystery.
Shepard tries desperately to catch her but to no avail. She is the daughter of Rael'Zorah , a member of the Admiralty Board. The quarian sympathizers have since been forgotten by their own people, though they are remembered by the geth themselves. Now that the quarians are reduced to a small, insular population, they have one common language known as Khelish. Tali can die during the final mission of the game—the "Suicide Mission"—depending on the player's choices. Tali is initially thrilled to find Shepard alive, but is surprised and disappointed to see the Commander working with Cerberus , due to the organization's anti-alien reputation, and recent act of sabotage against the Flotilla.

Tali'Zorah nar Rayya
Description: She tracked a patrol of geth to an uncharted planet, waited until one was separated from its unit, then disabled it and removed its memory core. Shepard can agree to her request, or refuse—it is classified Alliance data, after all, and official appeals for access can be taken down the line. If Shepard allows the geth to be upgraded, Tali watches in horror as she witnesses the entirety of the Migrant Fleet crash and burn up in Rannoch's atmosphere. Retrieved July 6,
