Trivia

  • Tali is the only character that can be a member of Shepard's squad in all three games of the Mass Effect trilogy who possesses a class-specific trait power/talent with the exact same name across all three games. For a counterexample, Liara's trait is Asari Scientist for the first two games but is Pure Biotic for the third.
