Childhood BackgroundEdit

Mother: Belinda Jane Halton (former married name Callaghan) used to be a bit on and off with liking Tara, half of the time caring for her like a perfect mother, and the other half telling her off for doing things she wasn't happy with, which were pretty minimal in Tara's view. Her views on Tara had taken a turn for the better since the summer before her second year, though she wasn't willing to remarry Sebastian.

During a parents-and-child camping weekend oh her third year Christmas holidays, Tara ended up bitten by a werewolf and was subsequently been living with her again considering her father wasn't a great potion maker and was unable to supply her with wolfsbane during the summer. Their mother-daughter relationship had faltered upon Tara's escape from Hogwarts, however, and apart from a narrow escape before the Christmas holidays she hadn't even seen her mother, even believed her to have been killed, until her nineteenth Halloween when they were in Hogsmeade, Belinda actually helping her try and penetrate the fire outside of Gladrags to get to Gemini Black, only to find she had already left the building.

Father: Sebastian Albert Callaghan was a rather dark man, but he's also been a perfect father to Tara. When he and her mother divorced, he was her immediate choice on who to stay with even though he'd never let it be otherwise. However, he reluctantly let her go back to her mother knowing she'd get the best care from her. She was fairly sure he was being threatened by a friend of his named Kyle, which caused her to stay with him for the summer between her fourth and fifth year and ended up imperiused from Kyle as a result. From her seventeenth birthday, she had completely cut off any contact whatsoever with him, though when she sees his owl pass over she likes to momentarily borrow her. Postmortem, she is thrilled with him having been killed however she would have much rather heard he had successfully killed her mother as well.


~ Sheila Sutherland (formerly Callaghan) is a squib sister whom Tara loved to play magical jokes on when they meet, which isn't very often. However, she wrote to her a lot while she was at school with their mother's owl. She's a mother of a baby girl, Amanda, and over the summer has had a second child, Jason. Like their parents, she and Tara had stopped keeping in touch upon Tara's escape.

~ James Sutherland, Tara's Muggle brother-in-law and husband of Sheila, isn't very talkative around his wife's family, due to thinking they're a little strange. He doesn't know they're magical, though occasionally he did see some of the pranks Tara plays on Sheila. Most recently he's witnessed the effects of Ton-Tongue Toffee, and now he has to deal with the fact that his wife's family are more than just strange.

Other Relatives?

~ Audrina Olivia McHudson, her closest relative, even closer than her father, is Tara's cousin on her mother's side. Tara had always kept an eye out for her despite being two days younger, and every birthday she could remember had been celebrated at the same time as Audrina's. She was the only family member other than her sister and parents that Tara stayed in fairly constant touch with, and one of the only two family members she had contacted since her escape, the other being Jennifer Emily McHudson, Audrina's sister.

~ Amanda Tara Sutherland is Tara's six year-old niece, daughter of Sheila and James Sutherland, born mid-January. Sheila's family are the ones to be responsible for teaching Amanda about the wizarding world, and Tara was more than happy to be the one with the most work even with her monthly transformations and spending more time at school than with her niece, though her mother consented to taking the little girl to Hogsmeade for Tara to meet her. Since the summer prior to Tara's seventh year, she had barred herself in her room instead of cuddling up to her niece like usual, and has nothing to do with her or her brother after her escape.

~ Jason Maximillian Sutherland is Tara's two year-old nephew, named after James's cousin and Sheila's grandfather, born in early August, but other than the name Tara knows nothing about him due to keeping herself shut away.

Childhood Friends: She had always counted Audrina as a friend, and got on really well with Kyle Devolin prior to her school years.

Best Memory of Family: A journey back to her birthplace, Dublin.

Worst Memory of Family: Her mother deciding to seal the divorce with her father before the Christmas holidays of her first year.

Important Experiences/Injuries:

~ In the summer between her first and second years, she had injured her leg rather badly due to fiendfyre in London.
~ During the third year Christmas holidays, Tara went camping for a week and ended up attacked and bitten by a werewolf on the last night.
~ The day before her return to school for her fifth year, she was placed under the Imperius curse.

Places Visited as a Child:

~ France, a few areas of it that she can't remember the names of.
~ Brighstone Forest, located in the Isle of Wight.
