- "Dangers everywhere. Need guns, too."
- —Tamiel to Simon[src]
Nothing is known about Tamiel's life prior to or as the outbreak began. She may lived somewhere in or near Washington D.C.
At some point after the outbreak, Tamiel became part of the Scavengers led by Jadis, and became a senior lieutenant.
Tamiel is first seen observing Rick Grimes and Aaron as they struggle and eventually take over a dozen supplies from a boat house. She is later seen aproaching Alexandria. She then heads for the gates and watches Gabriel with binoculars as he is on lookout.
Tamiel kidnaps Gabriel, and forces him to take all the supplies from Alexandria. He is later forced to take a car, and drive to the Junkyard. Before they leave, Gabriel writes the word "boat" on a piece of paper, leaving it as a hint, to where Rick and his group need to go to find him.
It is revealed in this episode that she was the one who took Gabriel and the supplies from Alexandria to the Junkyard. She is seen later, retrieving Gabriel on Jadis' command. She is then held at knife point by Gabriel but is ultimately let go.
Tamiel observes the 63 guns Rick and Michonne found at an overrun refugee camp and watches Rick and Jadis negotiate over the guns and being ready to fight.
Tamiel and the Scavengers arrive at Alexandria in a caravan of garbage trucks and bicycles.
Later Brion alerts everyone that the Saviors are coming. Negan’s caravan arrives. Eugene steps out and tries to convince Rick to surrender. Rick hesitates, stricken by Eugene’s betrayal, then gives Rosita the signal to detonate the explosives. Rosita pushes the detonator, but there is no explosion. Before Rick can reach for his gun, Jadis leaps up and aims her gun at Rick. Simultaneously, Tamiel and the Scavengers all turn their guns on the Alexandrians. Brion opens the gate.
After Negan is attacked by a zombified Sasha, the Alexandrians take their chance and attack the Scavengers and Saviors. Tamiel and Brion joins the fight with the Saviors. After The Kingdom and Hilltop Colony emerged in the fight and many Scavengers are gunned down, Brion and Jadis release smoke bombs and escape in the haze with the remaining Scavengers, including Tamiel scaling the walls and running out the gate on foot.
Tamiel is among the group of Scavengers surrounding Rick as he attempts to persuade Jadis and everyone else to abandon Negan and join the winning side against the Saviors. She shows her distrust for Rick and his plans.
Tamiel witnesses Rick overcome the armored zombie and hold Jadis gunpoint. She accompanies Jadis and the other Scavengers as they travel to the Sanctuary to validate Rick's claim that it is surrounded by zombies. She and the others are surprised to see the Sanctuary perimeter empty and in ruins.
Tamiel is shocked to find the Sanctuary empty instead of surrounded by zombies as shown in the photographs provided by Rick. When the Saviors start shooting at the Scavengers, Tamiel retreats with Jadis and the others.
Tamiel watches with Brion and the other Scavengers as Simon addresses the crowd and demands an apology from Jadis. Dissatisfied with her first attempt, Simon proceeds to shoot Brion in the chest, killing him, much to Tamiel's horror. Jadis attempts to apologize again and still dissatisfied, Tamiel is shot and killed next. After the rest of the Scavengers are massacred, Tamiel eventually reanimates. She is among the zombified Scavengers lured by Jadis to a metal crushing machine where she steps into the machine and is pulverized to a pulp.
- Negan (Indirectly Caused)
Negan orders Simon and his men to go to confront the Scavengers and take their weapons and kill one in order to get the others in line.
- Simon (Alive)
After taking all the Scavengers' guns and killing Brion after Jadis does not apologize for her actions, Tamiel is fatally shot in the chest herself before the rest of the Scavengers (except Jadis) are gunned down.
- Jadis (Zombified, Caused, Out of Mercy)
As a high ranking member of the Scavengers, Jadis and Tamiel have a good relationship. Tamiel respects Jadis' leadership without question and trusts her. Jadis screamed in horror as Tamiel was murdered by Simon, and was enraged to the point that she punched him in the face. She later put the zombified Tamiel and the rest of her fellow Scavengers out of their misery by luring them into a meat grinder, which Jadis watched on with sadness.
Jadis and Brion seem to have a good relationship. They have mutual respect for each other as fellow Lieutenants to Jadis. Tamiel was horrified when Simon executed Brion right in front of her, before suffering the same fate herself.
Tamiel and Rick appear to have a poor relationship, when Rick tried to outline his plans to take out the Saviors, she did not appear to trust him. Along with the rest of her fellow Scavengers, Tamiel abandoned Rick at the Sanctuary when they were fired upon. Rick showed no remorse for hers or the Scavengers demise.
