David Al Talaqani is a human colonist living at Zhu's Hope, on Feros.

Commander Shepard found David Al Talaqani in the docking bay when first landing on Feros. He warns Shepard about geth in the area, just prior to being killed by a Geth Shock Trooper.


  • Like Corporal Jenkins, Al Talaqani is a redshirt character.
  • There is a glitch in which Al Talaqani can be killed, avoiding the cutscene and preventing the three geth from appearing behind him.
  • The geth can also be prevented from killing Al Talaqani by using Sabotage or Overload on the wall behind him (setting a tech proximity mine) before talking to him. A carefully timed grenade thrown before talking to David can have the same effect.
