After curing the Genophage on Tuchanka, I was talking to James and he said "Too bad about Tarquin, I was just starting to like him." Is this a misinterpretation of


name or someone who I have forgotten entirely?

Tarquin is Lieutenant Tarquin Victus. The Primarchs son.

You rescue him during the mission Tuchanka: Turian Platoon, and afterwards, accompany him on the mission Tuchanka: Bomb.

Sadly, he dies at the end of that last one.

faceplams Of course! Do you remember when you learn his first name? I only remembered him as "Lieutenant Victus", for whatever reason. – Tim Stone Mar 10 '12 at 4:39
When you first land on the planet to rescue him, you'll hear his full name in some squad dialog. – LessPop_MoreFizz Mar 10 '12 at 4:56
@LessPop_MoreFizz Good call, thanks! – Dave McClelland Mar 10 '12 at 12:50
