History

Tara was born to Thomas and Jessica Williams, members of San Francisco's insular(and secret) were community. She had an older sister, Sophie, who turned out to be a werewolf, and eventually a younger brother, Joshua, who wasn't old enough to shift when she lost contact.

Once she entered high school, Tara and her family tried many times to bring out her therioform, but to no avail; she graduated at 18 without having shifted, and it was generally decided that she was a "dud"(or "carrier" to her face). She went to Carnegie Mellon University majoring in Computer Science, mainly with an interest in AI, and had been there for close to three years when she did shift, mid-coitus.

Panicked, the boy told everyone who would listen. Not knowing how to shift back, Tara panicked too, fleeing into the night. When the lush scrub gave way to mountain with impossibly slender conifers, she gratefully treed and slept there, exhausted.

In the morning, the scrub was gone; she was hungry, alone, and lost. She followed her nose to find local wildlife, and before she could catch something, she stumbled across a building. She tried to sneak up to it, but was spotted, and fled again; she was barely smart enough to think of their speech as language. She sniffed around after more animals, and ended up trapping some kind of deer in a cave. She ate her fill, but was again lost; when she found her way out, it was into a primeval jungle.
