Tara was found by Debbie and Sheridan Lynch, while the couple were out picnicking in the woods north of San Francisco. When attempts to find her biological parents failed, they declared it myoho and raised her as their own daughter. Her youth was relatively uneventful, and while her parents were definitely career-oriented, she merely grew up with independence and ambition of her own.

On vacation after her third year of a four-year Computer Science degree, she experienced her First Death. She was hiking along a lonely road above Calaveras Reservoir when a car took a turn too fast and hit her. She awoke in a morgue, the only other person there a young man, who gave her clothes and helped her outside.

He was Mathis Lacroix, an Immortal several centuries old. He taught her about her new condition, the Game, the Gathering, and the Rules. Against his advice, she said farewell to her family, but she obeyed in starting a new life in a new city, Seattle.
