Tara was the only child of the king of Shamballah, a great city founded many centuries ago by Atlanteans within the other dimensional realm of Skartaris.

Tara fell in love with Graemore, the son of her tutor, but her father, disapproving of such a romance for the royal heir, banished Graemore from Shamballah. Years later, while on a hunting expedition, Tara and the rest of her party were attacked by soldiers from Thera. Tara alone escaped. Subsequently, she was attacked by a carnivorous dinosaur, but was rescued by Travis Morgan, an American who become stranded in Skartaris. She and Morgan were then captured and brought to Thera, where they encountered their first foe, Deimos.[1] Tara and Morgan soon escaped from Thera, and Tara became Morgan's tutor in which she taught him her language and swordsmanship.

Morgan became the warrior known as Warlord, whom he and Tara had many adventures together after their first meeting. They soon fell in love, becoming husband and wife and having a son, Joshua. Upon her father's death, Tara became queen of Shamballah. Tragedy took a turn when Deimos kidnapped Joshua, and used Atlantean technology to clone the baby and then advance the clone rapidly to adulthood. Morgan was forced to kill in battle while unaware that it was not his true son. Tara and Morgan believed their son was dead, when actually he was brought up by peasants.

Tara's marriage to Morgan has suffered severe strains due to his frequent absences to go on adventures and seeming abandonment of his ambition to bring freedom to all of Skartaris. For a time Tara again became romantically involved with Graemore, but she remains in love with Morgan and their marriage has always overcome the strains that have beset it.[2]
