Tara is a princess of Shamballah (also referred to as the Golden City in the world of Skartaris), a world found deep within the center 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.

In time, they married and she was made Queen of Shamballah after the death of her father.

Major Story Arcs
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 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.
