Tara’s Theme (Void)
Although she may not look it, Tara is a crime lord, an information broker whose business involves knowing anything that is worth knowing. She has contacts, video surveillance access across the system, and many other resources at her disposal to get that information. Aside from knowing private and confidential information or knowing how to get it.
Tara also runs several other legit and illegal businesses including weapon shops, pharmaceutical stores, and even a chain of restaurants for legal profits, and weapons and drug smuggling for illegal profits. She has strong ties to the black market and does some of her indirect business there through representatives.
Tara grew up learning martial arts and practicing with sword weapons. She was taught the world here and beyond was a dangerous place and was given ways to protect herself. Her family moved to the moon Europa on Jupiter during her early childhood. While her parents worked in science labs and studied the stars, Tara learned the business trade and took an interest in the power that knowledge of all things had.
One fateful day when she was about 17 , Tara wandered into a yet unexplored cave system. It was here she discovered ancient yet intricate cave markings, art that showed horrifying things, Old ones devouring smaller humanoid figures and the like. Over the course of a few days of leaving and returning to go deeper each time, Tara discovered a ritual chamber. You could put two and two together that she probably saw something she didn’t like or perhaps something happened, but after then she never went back. Only known to her is that she discovered a book, with ancient texts that to Tara, seemed to transform so she could read it. Tara began reading outloud the texts that moved, almost as if in a trance. She wasn’t alone. Upon finishing the monotone chant, she had unknowingly committed a binding ritual. When she said the last word the symbiote made its move, and entered violently into Tara’s body. She was left unconscious but eventually woke.
Tara had gained a new physical power and it enabled her to gather information that would be otherwise near impossible to get. Over the years she honed her abilities with the symbiote and it slowly evolved. Since the binding, she kept it all a secret. Something like this could endanger her life if the wrong people knew what she was.
