Tara Vashkov was bought up among a regular family, nothing really stuck out apart from that Tara would be more distant than her siblings -- In her own world if you will. She would often be found in her room, playing with her stuffed toys, staring them in the eyes and gently stroking them, one at a time. Parents grew concerned and began to seek for help from friends and family, no answers were given but she was recommended to a shrink, a person who would talk her through her issues and how to resolve them if possible. As predicted, this didn't help either.
When the infection hit, the family spread into panic but Tara remained, calm, almost as if it were a regular afternoon. A question would pop up every now and again but it didn't concern her -- She saw it as freedom from her family and a way to get away from everything and be with herself, herself only.
