Here she is, and doesn't she look adorable? This is Tali'Zorah, and that is indeed her entire full first name. She was born this weekend to a couple in North Carolina and yes, she is named for the Mass Effect character. BioWare, the studio behind Mass Effect, tweeted out her picture as a tribute this afternoon.
"Tomorrow my daughter is scheduled to be born," wrote a soon-to-be-dad named Adam last night. "Since day 1 her first name was always going to be Tali'Zorah. ... My wife fell in love with the name during our first playthrough of [Mass Effect] many years ago."
Check out this rad Mass Effect 3 print by Courtney Billadeau, now available for preorder from the Bioware store here. It's called "No One Left Behind."
We are 8 months from Mass Effect 3's release and still unaddressed is one critical detail everyone expects the trilogy will at last reveal: the unmasking of Tali.
