Mass Effect 2: Bioware turns the spotlight on Tali

6:36 PM on 11.26.2009 // Brad Nicholson

The soft-spoken, brilliant machinist Tali is making a return in Mass Effect 2, joining a growing cast of several fresh faces and a single familiar one (as of now). Her role in this game is unclear, but it appears as though the Quarian has found herself in some sort of trouble because of her contact with Commander Shepard. At the end of the latest character trailer shown above, we hear an elder Quarian saying, “You are hereby found guilty of treason against the Quarian people and sentenced to exile.”

Sounds like bad news, right? Right. Then again, Tali is no stranger to being outside of the Fleet or even ruffling a few feathers. In the last game, she was getting her Pilgrimage on before finding herself in trouble with Saren. She managed to discover some nasty evidence about his attack on Eden Prime in a Geth memory core and thus had to seek out protection from the Shadow Broker. The Quarian would eventually join Shepard for the entire ME ride, serving as a brilliant lock-picker and an excellent bullet-sponge before a certain dude became available. Oh, gosh, now we feel real bad about that. Sorry, Tali.
