塔莉·佐拉·纳·莱雅（英文：Tali'Zorah nar Rayya）是一名奎利女性。她是瑞尔·佐拉的女儿，同时也是薛帕德小队的一员。尽管年纪轻轻，但塔莉在机械方面天资卓越。
塔莉的搭乘 Keenah'Breizh的飞船Honorata号开始了云游之旅，她原本计划先前往Illium，但是在通过新月星云时，Honorata号发现一颗不明的极寒星球上有桀斯信号，塔莉和Keenah决定着陆调查。他们瘫痪了一台桀斯单元并成功提取了记忆核心，后者存储的记录显示有两个不明身份的人正在讨论伊甸主星上的袭击以及收割者的来袭。Fearing that the rest of the galaxy may be in danger, Tali convinces Keenah that they should turn over the recording to the local authorities on Illium. At that moment, the turian mercenary Jacobus and his team, on the planet under Saren Arterius' orders to find Prothean technology, attack them. They flee to the Honorata and set a course for Illium.
抵达Illium后，一名对奎利人有偏见的港口工作人员对Honorata的停泊请求推三阻四。This gives Jacobus enough time to land on Illium first and plan an ambush. When the Honorata finally lands, Tali and the crew immediately come under fire, and the Honorata's other crew member is killed. Unable to return to their ship, Tali and Keenah stow away on a transport ship bound for the Citadel, where they hope to give the geth recording to the Citadel Council.
The transport's crew discover the stowaways, but the captain decides to turn them over to C-Sec instead of killing them. They try to explain to Chellick that they have important information for the Council, but he ignores them and warns them to leave the station in the next day. After learning from Avina that there is a seven month wait for an audience with the Council, they are spotted by Jacobus, who chases them across the Citadel. Tali is shot in her side during the chase, but Keenah is mortally wounded. Arriving at an incinerator deep inside the Citadel, Keenah can no longer keep up with Tali and dies. Tali leaves her friend and sets up a trap of her own for Jacobus. When the turian enters the incinerator, she seals the doors behind him and activates it, burning him alive.

一开始，塔莉对自己能登上联盟最先进的飞船而感到兴奋，然而很快她便发现自己遇到了点小麻烦：奎利人生活的飞船上总是充斥着各种设备的工作噪音，如果四周突然安静了下来，那么只能说明像引擎、空气净化器之类的关键设备宕机了，而这些声音在诺曼底号上统统都不存在，令塔莉非常不习惯。她同时解释说和移民舰队上人来人往的环境相比，诺曼底号的内部实在是显得空空荡荡，就好像有一半的船员失踪了一样（"it's like half the crew is missing."）。塔莉最终适应了过来——尽管她还是更喜欢闹哄哄的神堡卫区，因为那里对她而言更有到家的感觉，她尤其喜欢Flux酒吧的音乐，并希望能录下来带回移民舰队。
如果薛帕德礼貌地对待塔莉，她会非常感激，并解释说自己地同胞经常被外人当作二等公民一样对待。在沃梅尔星的塞拉睿人营地中，塔莉对即将到来的攻击感到十分紧张，但同时也保证会为了薛帕德而“侵略如火”（fight with fire）。在薛帕德和船员们决定发动叛变，偷走诺曼底号并飞往埃洛斯星时，塔莉对即将到来的冒险十分期待，但她同样好奇如果神堡舰队追了上来，议会会如何处置他们。薛帕德劝说塔莉她的父亲肯定会帮助她免受牢狱之灾，但塔莉并不确信，因为在奎利人文化中，偷取一艘飞船是重罪。
If Shepard chooses to partake in an Alliance campaign to drive the geth away from the 阿姆斯特朗星云, a cache of data may be found in a terminal at the main geth base on Solcrum, detailing the evolution of the geth since their split with the quarians.
如果塔莉获得了数据的副本，她会因为这份数据能帮助自己完成“云游”，回到同胞中间而感激。She reiterates her pledge to help stop Saren.
如果薛帕德拒绝的话，Tali isn't sanguine at the prospect of the Alliance actually releasing the files to the Migrant Fleet. She pouts at Shepard putting humanity's interests at the expense of the quarians, and she opts to leave the crew as soon as the mission is over—in order to find something of equal value and complete her Pilgrimage on her own.
Template:Spoilers (Mass Effect 2)
在SSV 诺曼底号遇袭之后，塔莉完成了自己的云游并返回移民舰队，她加入了尼玛号，并按照传统更名为塔莉·佐拉·维斯·尼玛（英文：Tali'Zorah vas Neema），成为舰队中十分受尊敬的一员。2185年，她带领一支团队前往人类殖民地自由之路，寻找在云游中失踪的奎利人维托·纳拉，但当他们抵达自由之路时，整个殖民地已经空无一人，只有一些保安用的机甲还处于工作状态，塔莉认为可能是维托激活了这些机甲。在搜索维托的过程中，塔莉遇到了薛帕德少校——塔莉此前一直以为后者在两年前的诺曼底号失事事件中殉职，而事实上他的遗体被赛伯鲁斯回收并复活，此时正和雅各布·泰勒及米兰达·劳森一同调查殖民地失联的情况。
在一路突破桀斯封锁线后，薛帕德小队遇见了卡尔·里加，并摧毁了一台强大的桀斯巨像。最终他们成功地解救了塔莉，后者也同意加入薛帕德的团队，She explains that the data she has gathered on Haestrom's sun proves it is dying too quickly, possibly (as is elaborated later) due to dark energy affecting the mass of the star. Despondent over the deaths of her friends during the mission, Tali angrily hopes that the Admiralty Board will put this information to good use, and make it worth such a terrible cost.
在登上诺曼底号一段时间后，塔莉收到一条来自移民舰队的令人不安的信息。她告诉薛帕德Admiralty Board指控她犯下了叛国罪，塔莉请求薛帕德带自己回到移民舰队查清真相，证明自己的清白，在任务期间，admiralty board决定将她的船名改为“塔莉·佐拉·维斯·诺曼底”（英文：Tali'Zorah vas Normandy），在忠诚任务完成后，无论结果如何，她都会保留这个名字。
在塔莉和军团的忠诚任务都完成后，塔莉发现军团在扫描自己的万用工具，并向桀斯发送有关移民舰队的情报，二人因此爆发了争执，军团辩称自己只是 merely warning the geth of the threat they face from the quarians' tests and their plans to attack the geth. Unless Shepard intervenes impartially, the Commander will lose one of their loyalties. If the conflict is resolved without Shepard siding with Tali or Legion, Tali thanks Legion for agreeing not to transmit the data back to geth and offers non-classified information on the Flotilla to Legion instead；如果薛帕德站在军团一边就会失去塔莉的忠诚，但可以在之后的对话中重新获得。
塔莉是男性薛帕德的潜在恋爱对象，当塔莉加入诺曼底号团队时，文书士凯莉·钱伯斯会告知薛帕德塔莉或许希望自己和薛帕德的关系超越友情，并提示说她的肢体语言中有许多动作表现出了这一点。后藤霞同样注意到了这一点，告诉薛帕德塔莉张口闭口都会谈到他，并让薛帕德多关心一下塔莉。在完成忠诚任务后，塔莉会出现轻微的发烧症状，她在聊天时告诉薛帕德生活在一套隔离服中是什么样的感受，She says that quarians are in their suits their whole lives and that the most intimate thing that they can do with another quarian is link their suit environments. It can be dangerous and is considered their most sacred form of trust. 塔莉一不小心说漏嘴，称她只会对薛帕德敞开心扉。她意识到自己把心里话说出来后显得很紧张，讲话都变得语无伦次，就连薛帕德都说她正在脸红，但塔莉辩解称那只是发烧。最后，她不得不承认文书士的判断是对的，并向薛帕德告白说自己从追捕萨伦的冒险开始时，自己就对薛帕德产生了好感。但是直到此时，塔莉依然心存畏惧，因为薛帕德从来没见过自己的真实面貌。She is happily surprised when Shepard proves her wrong by telling her how he feels the same way about her. Tali later apologizes for putting him on the spot, saying she was "unprofessional and selfish". She tells Shepard that he "deserves to be happy with someone" and doubts that she can do that for him. But Shepard says that he doesn't want to be with anyone else, he wants to be with Tali, and he'll do everything he can to make it work.
Overjoyed to hear this, Tali tells Shepard that she wants this relationship to be real, that she must "feel [his] skin against [hers]." 不幸的是，奎利人脆弱的免疫系统，以及右旋基因结构可能导致塔莉染上严重的疾病。因此她请求薛帕德给自己一些时间做准备，薛帕德可以就此事咨询莫丁·索罗斯，但后者只能建议“多给自己消消毒”，还特别说明口头接触的感染风险很大，最后他还把一些与奎利人生理有关的信息交给了薛帕德。
在诺曼底号进入奥米加4号中继器之前，塔莉紧张地进入了薛帕德的舱室并告诉他that she has taken several antibiotics and "herbal supplements" to bolster her immune system. Speaking nonstop (a "defensive mechanism"), she becomes visibly nervous about removing her bio-suit and having her first intimate experience. 薛帕德安抚了她，并摘下了她的面具，第一次注视着她的面容。不再恐惧的塔莉扑倒了薛帕德，并热情地与他接吻，随后画面逐渐变暗。
另外，如果塔莉从自杀任务中生还，她会告知薛帕德虽然自己“发烧”（"running a fever"）“咳嗽”（"nasty cough"），而且“鼻子里塞满了‘不可描述之物’”（"[sinuses] are filled with something [she] can't even describe"），但“这一切都是值得的”（"it was totally worth it"）。
Lair of the Shadow Broker
如果薛帕德在完成Lair of the Shadow Broker任务后将莉亚拉带上诺曼底号的话，她会询问薛帕德的目的是不是为了给塔莉一个新家园。 If Shepard answers in the positive, he claims it is because Tali is important to him. In reply, Liara reveals that Tali has been awestruck ever since she joined him two years ago, to which Shepard wishes Liara could have mentioned it to him at the time. Liara then reveals that had she told Shepard then, it would have ruined the fun of him finding out on his own. If Shepard had romanced Liara in 2183 and later chose to just remain friends, Liara will instead say that though she was naive, she had a vested interest in "not adding any more competition." Before returning to the Shadow Broker's ship, 莉亚拉说她希望两人能够幸福。
Template:Spoilers (Mass Effect 3)
当诺曼底号加入奎利人的战争舰队时，塔莉和薛帕德重聚了。在诺曼底号的会议室内，they exchange introductory pleasantries after meeting with the admirals. 如果薛帕德询问为什么没有音信的话，塔莉会回答自己清楚薛帕德在地球上有不少麻烦，though if Shepard only cares about obtaining the quarian fleet Tali replies more apprehensively but assures the Commander they'll get what they want.
谈话结束后，Tali leaves with a hint for catching up in private as she says she needs to keep things strictly business in front of the admirals. While the geth-quarian war is ongoing she takes up residence in the Normandy's war room along with Admiral Raan.
If Shepard permits the private talk in the Captain's Cabin, Tali immediately voices the doubts she couldn't openly express. She feels the pressure of having 17 million lives counting on her decisions. If Shepard "comforts" her by urging acceptance of the fact people will die, Tali is reminded by something her father said: commanders mourn losses, not people. Putting people at a distance was a requisite for making the big decisions, and Tali thinks she can't do that. 如果塔莉和薛帕德之间只是朋友关系的话，and the Commander assures her she's doing everything she can, she feels regret at helping her father's research on the geth as the tech derived from his work made an invasion too good to pass up.
If the evidence against Tali's father was turned over to the Admiralty Board, she apologizes to Shepard and admits that they were right. Had she been exiled, she wouldn't have been able to speak out against lunatics like Xen. 如果塔莉被流放了，however, she muses instead that maybe exile was preferable, as that way she won't expect people to listen to her.如果塔莉成为了将军，she takes solace in the fact she can now push back against the worst ideas, and reveals she accepted the position because of Shepard. Tali asked herself what the Commander would do, and interpreted it as taking the chance to make things better.
在莱诺克星之战前，塔莉会为了医疗物资援助而感到伤神，因为突锐人简称他们没有多余的物资可以提供了。Tali points out the quarians are willing to pay and that thousands will die without the meds, but the turian counters that with the ongoing war and the recent failed coup the turians themselves don't have much supplies to go around. Shepard can step in and reason with either party, but the end result is the same: no meds for the quarians. Tali is grateful for the token support if Shepard sides with her, or grudgingly concedes the turian's point and tells the Commander she'll talk later if otherwise.
如果塔莉从莱诺奇星之战中幸存，塔莉会成为奎利人驻神堡的大使。Shepard finds her conversing with a clerk, whom Tali identifies as the one who denied her asylum when she acquired evidence of Saren's treachery. The turian doesn't recognize her and Tali decides not to remind him, realizing that war is no time for petty grudges.
During the aftermission lulls, 塔莉会经常和盖拉斯、EDI、轮机长亚当斯打趣逗乐，还会和盖拉斯聊起之前与薛帕德一起参加的许多任务。
塔莉还和EDI聊起了收割者改造尸傀的话题，并对它们没有对奎利人下手这一点感到疑惑。EDI认为这并不是因为收割者“挑三拣四”，而是因为它们从未遇到过大批的奎利人。When Tali is still not convinced, EDI tells her that the Normandy has benefited greatly from her expertise and that the quarians are a very intelligent race with an astonishing knack for engineering and technology. Tali is mollified at that and thanks EDI for her assistance to the Normandy.
After the disastrous mission on Thessia, 塔莉会站在纪念墙前用通讯器和盖拉斯或萨曼莎·特雷诺（如果突锐人不在的话）聊天，on the comm about Liara's distress at seeing her homeworld fall if Liara already went straight to her cabin. Tali is desperate to help Liara somehow: she wants to talk to her but fears that she is not the right person for it at the moment, as she has gained her homeworld as opposed to Liara losing hers. She suggests Garrus or Traynor to console Liara, thinking the shared experience of homeworlds burning might be a start. Both of them advise to give Liara some space, while Traynor additionally points out the quarian knows the asari better than her.
当薛帕德因为帕勒文星、地球，以及现在的瑟西亚星先后落入敌手而感到焦虑时，Tali encourages them, saying the Commander was the one who always prevailed against overwhelming odds and they will always figure things out. She assures Shepard she believes in them, no matter how dark it gets.
If Tali is in the squad at the final push towards the Conduit, she will be killed by Harbinger if insufficient galactic forces have been mustered.
如果塔莉没能从自杀任务中生还，她在进攻桀斯无畏舰时的角色会被Admiral Daro'Xen vas Moreh取代，而在莱诺克星的最终任务中则会被Admiral Shala'Raan vas Tonbay代替。和军团一样，塔莉是促成奎利与桀斯停火的关键人物，少了其中任何一个都无法令双方达成一致。如果薛帕德选择放过桀斯，那么Geth Prime会代替她出现在地球的最终战役中。
Mass Effect 3: From Ashes
After Javik's initial integration into the Normandy, Tali can be overheard on the intercom in his quarters attempting to make conversation with him. She tries to empathize with his situation, but Javik then lectures her on the mistake of creating the geth, claiming if the quarians hadn't done so they would still be masters of their own planet and would still be breathing the air evolution intended. Tali is taken aback, despite Liara warning her about Javik's demeanor.
普洛仙人会告诉她在上一个循环中，尽管奎利人十分原始，但依旧被认为是十分富有魅力的， then tells her primitive quarians were considered attractive during his cycle, but it's a shame no one can appreciate it now - except Shepard, if Tali and the Commander are in a relationship. Tali is flustered at this and demands to know how he knows, but Javik just laughs. In any case, Tali soon gets annoyed and hurriedly cuts off communication.
If Shepard amicably settled Liara and Javik's confrontation after the fall of Thessia, Tali talks to Javik about it over intercom after the events at Sanctuary, although the manner in how she conducts herself depends on whether she's drunk or not.
If Shepard goes to Javik's quarters first instead of talking to Tali at the bar, an inebriated Tali pesters Javik claiming he likes Liara and the crew despite acting angry all the time. When Javik points out the risk of intoxication to quarian physiology, she then claims he likes her too.
Otherwise, a sober Tali merely thanks Javik for lifting Liara's spirits. During his cycle, the feelings of fellow soldiers didn't matter as there were always worse atrocities committed and the only means of coping is to be numb to it all. Tali cannot see how anyone can ignore the atrocities at Sanctuary, but Javik tells her it is easier if she's seen far worse. The quarian pities the Prothean because he had to.
Javik deems her sympathy unnecessary, but appreciated nonetheless. Quarians were always emotional, and Javik believes it is because of their eco-symbiotic society. Tali posits that maybe the feelings were just genuine.
如果塔莉依然幸存并和薛帕德有恋爱关系的话，她会在薛帕德遇袭的第一时间赶来帮助。After the initial escape, however (regardless of whether a relationship exists), she will be grumpy that Shepard destroyed the sushi restaurant, mentioning that she had always wanted to go there.
Shepard can invite Tali up to the personal apartment after the fiasco upon receipt of her email. When she arrives, Shepard asks about the plan for the evening and she quotes a line from the vid film 'Fleet and Flotilla', "I'm as free as the dust in the solar wind." At first, she believes Shepard has seen the vid, but is shocked when it's actually to the contrary. She then states excitedly she knows what they'll be doing for the night.
Later, both of them are watching the film at the scene where she got the quote from. Shepard asks Tali if she watches it a lot; she then explains that she and her friends would watch it every time they had sleepovers when they were younger.
If she's in a relationship with Shepard, Tali relates that she and her friends even memorized the lyrics from the musical. Tali realizes they can activate sing-along mode on the vid and begins to sing along with the song to Shepard,
"Let the moon's shining light hide two lovers with its rays/ Though I know that dawn will set us on course for separate ways/ I will hold this night in memory for all my living days/ Now unmasked, I feel your skin on mine."
Shepard can then comment on her singing or that she's always had a thing for alien men. After her reply, the scene in the vid shows the quarian character wanting her lover to see her face, with the turian character replying back that he already has and the two embrace. Tali says that "works for her" before she and Shepard embrace as he removes her mask.
If she's just friends with Shepard, Tali becomes nostalgic upon watching the vid again. She promises to send relevant links to extranet sites along with captioned animations when it's over.
如果薛帕德为塞恩举办了追悼会，the drell's former crewmates take turns in reminiscing about him. Tali speaks about how the assassin could remember everything in his life down to the smallest detail, even all of his mistakes. She says she would've been a nervous wreck if she had that ability.
薛帕德可以选择在塔莉的陪同下参加派对，不过在奎利人与桀斯的战争结束前她都无法到场。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.
When people marvel at the luxury of the apartment, Tali remarks she could've bought an air-conditioner for her suit judging by the electric bill the pad must've been getting; apparently she doesn't have one and it gets hot in there.
If Garrus asks if they're interrupting any "plans" afoot in the "Tali-Shepard love nest", she just taunts him or responds he'll never know. If Garrus alludes to a "Traynor-Shepard love nest" instead, Tali slyly remarks that "checkmate" takes on a different meaning when Samantha replies they'll just be having "chess".
When Liara says she finds galactic dialects fascinating, Tali responds with one of two things: 如果塔莉喝醉了，she says the only dialect she'll want to hear from Liara is "inebriated asari." If not, she cuts Liara's musings short, telling her such topics are the last things they should talk about in a party.
If Shepard checks in on her group, 特雷诺担心会不会有人试图偷走诺曼底号，而塔莉则逗趣说他们可以礼貌地给赛伯鲁斯打个电话，请他们再造一艘SR-3，团队中的一员——萨马拉或萨曼莎——吐槽说那样一来塔莉就得把名字改成“塔莉·佐拉·冯·诺曼底·SR-3”（Tali'Zorah Von Normandy SR-3）之类的了，塔莉纠正说衔接奎利人船名的中间词应该是“维斯”（Vas）而不是“冯”（Von），如果她喝醉了的话，塔莉还会继续解释“冯”在奎利人的语言中意为“膀胱虚弱的人”——这刚好是她现在的感受。The group toasts the Normandy in any case, and if Tali was romanced, she's the one to toast falling in love with its captain.
当特雷诺询问其在场所有人和薛帕德的经历时，塔莉会回忆第一次遇见他的场景，并称自己当时一个劲地希望薛帕德去洗个澡——因为她的过滤器刚好需要换了，而人类身上偏偏又携带了大量细菌。Liara remarks that three years later, she's either eating Shepard's food or drinking Shepard's booze in a straw, calling it "progress." If Tali and Shepard are lovers, Liara instead deadpans that the quarian's not thinking about the germs anymore, and Traynor chimes in that Tali may still picture him in the shower.
At the second phase of the party, in an energetic setting Tali is seated with Traynor and EDI on the upper floor listening to their conversation. EDI is forcing Traynor to recall her perverse attraction to the AI's then-disembodied voice, and Tali nearly poisons herself with cheese trying to change the subject, understandably creeped out by the awkward topic. In a quiet setting, Tali hangs out in the poker den with James and Liara, "acting" out the differences between the SSV Normandy and the SR-2, waving her arms around and making what sounds like approximations of machinery operations. She remarks the SR-2 is "harder" to perform, asking if that makes it better or worse. She sides with Liara who vouches for the original Normandy when the discussion devolves into sides supporting the merits of each ship.
At the final phase of the party, in a quiet setting Tali hogs a bathroom on the ground floor, wasted and barely able to sit up. She apparently got an omni-tattoo/omni-tat/omni-too at Jack's suggestion, if the psychotic biotic is around. If Tali is in a relationship with Shepard, she says that Jack said he'd find such a thing hot. When Shepard asks her where she had the alleged tattoo, she says it's "down in the lower wards, near the bottom", a reference she got from Liara.
Shepard tells her to get some rest, leaving her slumped in the bathroom. Shepard occasionally hears bits of her babblings whenever they're passing by the room. Her ramblings include the following: "It just smells like sweat. Why would you even ask that?", "No, that gets broken down with mass effect fields. Those are just my hips..." , "Don't do that in my helmet. It just gunks up the filters." , "Go for the optics, Chatika..." , "Mmm, Shepard, you know I'm ticklish..." (if she's in a relationship with Shepard) , "Garrus? But you're with Shepard! Oh, the three of us? Well, hmm..." (if Garrus is in a relationship with Shepard) , "Oh, Mr. Vakarian, I could use some help with my suit seals..." (if Shepard is in a relationship with neither)
If the party had everyone dancing, Tali is on the dance floor with Steve and Samantha, waving her arms and body around and rotating on the spot. She takes part in reciting atomic weights of elements, and doesn't get the reference to sixty-nine when the humans around her snigger. If Garrus calls out element 69 (thulium), she calls him a nerd. She's also amazed humans and asari can dance and don't tip over given the way their legs bend (compared to turians and quarians).
If Shepard dances with the group, the guests then comment on the Commander's unique dancing technique. Tali opines that Shepard is entitled to a "few eccentricities" since they are saving the galaxy. If they're in a relationship, Tali instead remarks that Shepard's dancing is something people "learn" to love.
如果薛帕德和塔莉只是朋友，Tali can be found arms on her knees in one of the bedrooms upstairs in the morning after, nursing a hangover, regardless of the setting and barely remembering anything from the previous night.
如果薛帕德和塔莉是恋人，Shepard wakes to find Tali nestled beside him on his bed. If the party was energetic, she'll mention how sick she feels, and also that whoever dressed her back up messed up the clasps on her suit. If the party was calm, then Shepard will ask how she feels, to which Tali replies that she'd feel worse if she were waking up alone. On the crew's return back to the Normandy, Tali takes Shepard's hand in hers, lamenting that their shore leave is over and states that she would've never guessed before that she would be serving on a human ship and that she "wouldn't trade it for anything". Her last words to Shepard before the crew departs is that they've "had a good ride", to which Shepard replies "The best."
Provided that Tali survives the suicide mission, she then meets Shepard again during the diplomatic talks with quarians. Depending on whether or not she was exiled, she's either one of the Admirals discussing the war or the Admiralty Board's "secret adviser" on the geth. After a brief discussion with the admirals, Tali and Shepard walk into another area of the ship where Shepard can inquire about their relationship. 塔莉告知薛帕德她不能在将军们面前讨论这些，并建议两人移步到舰长舱室里面进行私下对话。如果薛帕德邀请她到舱室的话，两人可以选择继续这段恋情。
Alternatively, while having a conversation with Shepard about the reason he fights being for his friends and crew, Javik says he believes there is another reason: Shepard's relationship with Tali. Javik asks if Shepard and Tali are "joined." Shepard confirms this, but Javik states that he could already sense it by his pheromones.
Before Shepard faces down the Reaper on Rannoch, Tali confesses her love for the Commander in lieu of Legion or the Geth VI wishing him good luck. On the Normandy, after retaking her homeworld, she states that nothing stands between them now: "whatever the galaxy throws at [them], [she] will be at [his] side." Before resuming her duties, she tells the Commander she has left him something in his room. Next to his bed, Shepard finds a picture of Tali without her mask.
If Shepard chose the geth over the quarians or any possible compromise, however, not even Tali's love for the Commander would stop her from taking her own life.
On the Presidium, after Tali's conversation with the turian clerk, Shepard can laud her for forgetting past grievances or encourage her to remind the turian of the past. Either way, Tali will remark that the war is bigger than old grudges. Shepard then praises Tali, saying that the difference between the two is Tali's willingness to help when it counts. Tali will shake her head and reveal that it was Shepard who made the difference in her attitude.
After the mission on Thessia, Tali is seen standing by the Memorial Wall. She comforts Shepard when he expresses concern over the current direction of the war. Tali ends by enjoining Shepard to never forget he is the man she loves, no matter what.
When Shepard launches the mission against the Cerberus base, Tali comes to his quarters and asks to spend the night with him. If he accepts, they remove her mask together and passionately kiss. 几个小时后，薛帕德醒了过来，并发现塔莉刚刚穿好防护服。After inquiring about her well-being, she reassures him by saying that her system has adapted to physical "contact" with him. She rejoins him in bed and they comfort each other, preparing for the confrontation with the Reapers.
如果盖拉斯·瓦卡利安和塔莉都没有和薛帕德建立恋爱关系的话，他们两个就会坠入爱河，并在诺曼底号的主炮舱被薛帕德“抓现行”。Provided that the Commander is not romantically involved with either, their conversations over the intercom end awkwardly, revealing their mutual affection. Otherwise, their conversations end casually, indicating that the two are simply friends.
If one of them is in a relationship with Shepard, Tali still visits Garrus at the main battery to say her goodbyes as well as make a wager on who can kill the most. Shepard can then thank them both for being there through everything and for believing in the Commander no matter what. Tali then comments that they will finish it the same way as it started, together.
在地球的最终任务开始后，塔莉和薛帕德可以在战斗开始前告别。Tali's enthusiasm for retaking Earth falters briefly as she laments that she "wants more time" to be with Shepard. If she follows Shepard during the final charge to the Conduit, Tali gets critically injured and forcibly evacuated to the Normandy. Although she pleads with Shepard not to leave her behind, he asks her to go on living and to build a home on Rannoch, to which Tali tearfully replies that she already "has a home" and begs Shepard to come back to her.
After talking with the Catalyst and deciding the fate of the galaxy, Tali will be the last person Shepard sees before ending the Reaper threat.
在战争结束后，塔莉会将薛帕德的姓名牌安装到诺曼底号的纪念墙上。If the Reapers were destroyed and enough of the galaxy's forces were rallied, she refrains from placing the name and the Normandy is seen flying off - and in a pile of rubble somewhere a man with an N7 armor stirs. If Shepard merged organic and synthetic life, after placing the Commander's name on the Memorial Wall Tali shares a hug with EDI.
- 塔莉的靴子里插了一把匕首，但玩家只有在《质量效应3》中才能看见她使用这把匕首：如果薛帕德在莱诺奇星上选择站到奎利人一边的话，塔莉会用自己的匕首攻击军团/桀斯VI。在这一幕中，她的匕首是一把broken Phantom sword。
- According to Tali's "Character Key", a limited edition item formerly sold in the Bioware Store，塔莉的站高为172厘米， This is seemingly reinforced by an official miniature statue also sold in the Bioware Store; the figure is approximately 9.25 inches tall, on a 1/7 scale, and depicts Tali leaning forward with her knees bent, subtracting a noticeable amount of height compared to if she was standing with straight posture. Finally, an official statue formerly sold in the Bioware Store stands 19 inches tall at a 1/4 scale, which would be consistent with these other pieces of merchandise if the base/stand part of the figure is at 1-2 inches in height, depending on how much height Tali gains from her shoes.
- 塔莉的战斗无人机昵称“Chatika vas Paus”，这个名字源于BioWare开发的《博德之门II》，Chiktikka Fastpaws is the raccoon companion of Baervan Wildwanderer, a deity worshiped by Aerie, one of the party members.
- 当Chatika被召唤出来时，塔莉有时会喊“Go for the optics, Chatika! Go for the optics!”，这同样是对《博德之门II》中的Minsc的致敬，后者会对他的miniature giant space hamster Boo喊“Go for the eyes, Boo! Go for the eyes!”。
- Aerie sometimes reacts to commands by saying, "Faster than Chiktikka Fastpaws!" while Tali may exclaim "Nothing's faster than Chatika vas Paus!"
- Tali and Aerie have some other similarities as well, both being the junior non-human female companion with a soft voice, a possible love interest for the main character, and having a "support" role in combat (focusing on spells or powers over weapon damage).
- 根据Lukas Kristjanson的介绍，塔莉原本打算被命名为"Talsi Orah, with the intent that Orah would become the familiar one". However, because the name flowed “oddly” and it was “too 'soft'” for where BioWare wanted to take the character, it was changed before the game was released.
- Preston Watamaniuk felt that Tali had to die, no matter what, if the player sided with the geth, something that he found personally difficult having to convince the rest of the development team.
