Tara Lily Macmillan
<Played by Jay>
Full Name>> Tara Lily Macmillan
Date of Birth>> 02/12/2001
Staff or Student>> Student
House>> Blue Ribbon House
Face Claim>> Gracie Dzienny
Personality>> Tara is an intensely competitive person, who is never entirely happy with herself unless she wins- although this could be because she subconsciously sees herself as being better than everyone else anyway. Not that this shows; Tara is perfectly capable of being kind and caring- when there's something in it for her. She is also extremely flirtatious, never missing an opportunity to play around with someone's feelings- or, if they're stupid enough to let her get close, their heart. However, she forms great attachments to her animals, and is more likely to blame herself than them for anything which goes wrong- which is just as well since it's usually her fault.
Likes>> +Horses (obviously)
Dislikes>> -Small children
Hopes>> +To ride at Olympic standard
+To make sincere friends
Secrets>> Her bisexuality
Appearance>> Tara has long, wavy hair which is extremely blonde, and she is very proud of it. Her eyes are sky blue, and she has quite light skin. She never wears anything especially casual- that is to say, she'll wear a t-shirt and jeans, but only if they look good on her, since appearance is very important to her. Tara never discusses her weight, but she is fairly slim and has delicate bone structure, meaning that she is fairly light for her height- quite tall at 5'9". She seldom wears makeup, and then only a little, since she is fully aware of how good she looks without it.
Markings>> Pierced ears
Medical History>> Tara seldom suffers from illness, having a naturally strong immune system, but she did break a leg falling off a horse over a jump. Healed as normal with no complications.
Full History>> Tara was born in the city of New York to a prosperous banker father and a mother who was a journalist for a prominent women's magazine. She grew up in relatively rich surroundings, therefore, and the family had a home in the country where Tara kept a horse by the name of Black Beauty- she read the book when she was eight and named the horse after it. Her parents were rather amused.
It was here that she was taught to ride by the man that her parents hired to care for the horses when they were in the city; a man who had never competed but had been to one of the best riding schools in the country. Under his occasional instruction, she proved herself a natural and determined rider, and on his recommendation, her parents started sending her to riding lessons. She succeeded even more prominently here, and so her parents took the decision to send her to Blue Ridge, to allow her to fully develop her skills.
At the age of eight, Tara fell from a horse while jumping a cross-country fence, which led to her dislike of the discipline- more so since the fall affected her horse also, leading to his being unable to be ridden ever again.
