Tara was a recurring character on Xena: Warrior Princess. She was an arrogant youngster, who wanted to replace Gabrielle as Xena's side-kick. Several fights broke out between them, but they eventually became friends. She promised to be good from then on, but broke the law once more when she danced in a town where it was banned.

She belonged to the Red Valley Gang and seemed to be in a relationship with another member, Micah. Tara desperately tried to get Xena's attention by beating up Gabrielle, creating a feud between the two when Xena allows Tara to tag along with them, claiming that she sees a lot of herself in her. Once getting to know each other, Gabrielle and Tara sort out their differences and the two become friends. She then left the Red Valley Gang.

Tara got into more trouble - breaking the law by dancing in a village where it is illegal, but Xena and Gabrielle sort things out with a little help from Autolycus.
