"Lie face down on the ground and put your hands behind your head! Or we'll cut your balls off!"
—Tara threatening Paul Monroe.[src]

Tara is a character first introduced in Issue 104 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead and is a female member of The Saviors.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Tara's life before the outbreak began.


What Comes After

Tara is first seen with John, attempting to capture Paul Monroe. Tara confronts Jesus, threatening to cut off his testicles while brandishing her knife. Paul kicks Tara, John, and another Savior down, and they hop to their feet, attempting to gain control of him. Tara is about to kill Paul when Dwight intervenes, stating that Negan wishes to question him.

No Turning Back

As Dwight takes his leave from the community, members of The Saviors make remarks as he packs. Tara is seen along with Mark and Sherry where she comments that the group is better off without him, unhappy with his decision to leave.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Tara has killed:

  • Possibly numerous counts of zombies and unnamed people



Tara has certain degree of respect for Dwight's authority, as demonstrated when Dwight stopped Tara from killing Paul Monroe and she didn't question his order. However, after the fall of Negan, Dwight struggles with being the leader and ultimately decides to leave, causing Tara to lose respect for him.
