Origin

Princess Tara

Tara is a princess of Shamballah (also referred as the Golden City in the world of Skartaris), a world found deep within the centre of the Earth. While battling a dinosaur, Travis Morgan, a displaced army pilot, arrived to assist her. After defeating the creature together, Tara taught him all she knew about fighting and in return, Travis gave her his broken watch which she regarded as a talisman. Soon afterwards, the two were separated by a band of slaves-makers, resulting in Travis being captured. Throughout their history together, Travis and Tara maintained and continued their relationship despite many separations and trials. In time they married and she was made Queen of Shamballah after the death of her father..

Character Evolution

Being the sole heir to the Shamballah crown, Tara had many restrictions placed upon her, including the prevention of marrying her first love, Graemore who was not of noble birth. Tara however was always mindful of her duties and was willing to do anything for her people, including marrying another warlord of a rival kingdom to halt hostilities between them. Despite being in love with Travis Morgan who she had not seen since they parted ways after he saved her from slave traders, she insisted on carrying through with the wedding - even when her true love unexpectedly arrived. Fortunately the groom recognized the two were destined to be mates and refused to come between then, agreeing to a peace accord between the two kingdoms.

Major Story Arcs

Tara and Graemore

During the first separation between Tara and Travis, Tara fell out of love with Graemor - a childhood love whom her father refused to allow her to marry. At one point she was willing to marry a rival lord to end wars between their people, but when the lord discovered she was in love with Travis he relented, claiming Tara was clearly the Warlord's mate and he wouldn't stand in their way.

After Tara gave birth to their son Joshua (named after the Travis' father), the baby was captured by their enemy Deimos. The evil sorcerer had the child grow into manhood within hours to battle the Warlord (as Travis was eventually referred as) but Joshua was killed accidentally at the hands of the Warlord, devastating Tara.

Years later, Tara discovered her son was alive and that the baby forced to grow into a man had been a clone. Tragically, Tinder killed his father by accident as well. Honouring his father's legacy, Joshua took up the mantel of the Warlord.

Shortly after Travis Morgan died, Tara gave birth to their daughter Morgana, an extremely powerful sorceress who was described by her half-sister Jennifer as "pure magic."

The series ended with the portal leading into Skartaris closing permanently.
