Biography

Background

Tavra is the middle-daughter of Mayrin, the Maudra of the Vapra Clan and All-Maudra to all Gelflings, and sister to Seladon and Brea. Of the three sisters, Tavra was the most adventurous and became a skilled swordswoman. She often acted as the peace-keeper between Seladon and Brea, who developed a sibling rivalry due to Seladon feeling pressured at being the next All-Maudra one day.

At one point in her life, Tavra wished to journey with the Sifa Clan with her lover, Onica. Together, the two kept a secret relationship, as Tavra knew her mother would never approve of her romance with someone outside of the Vapra clan. However, Tavra's sisterly and royal duties prevented her from traveling.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

One day, Tavra came to fetch Brea from her usual spot, the Library, and informed her younger sister that she was allowed to attend the tithing ceremony, which delighted Brea. However, during the tithing ceremony, Brea was absolutely disgusted by how SkekOk manipulated a farmer and his wife to give up one of their treasured possessions. Tavra solemnly told her sister that was the way things were, showing her distaste in how the Skeksis treated other Gelfling. Later on, after Brea wiped out Elder Cadia's memory and Mayrin chastising her before sending the princess to the Order of Lesser Service, Tavra was then assigned to alleviate the angry Sifans.

Afterwards, she is then sent on another mission, this time to hunt down Rian for allegedly murdering Mira, a member of the Vapra clan. En route, Tavra found Brea after she ran away from the Order of Lesser Service, and supported her decision, saying that Seladon and Brea are alike in their stubbornness but that their sisterly bond could never be broken. She then continued on, eventually catching up with Rian in a Podling bar while he is also sought after by Naia and Kylan. She intends to take him to Ha'rar but Rian convinced her and the others to dreamfast with him to learn the truth. Tavra learned that the Skeksis had killed Mira by draining her essence. Ordon had also joined the dreamfasting as well. She goes with Naia and Kylan to save Gurjin from the castle while Rian and Ordon went to Ha'rar and agreeing to meet in Ha'rar.

When they get to the castle Tavra departs from Naia and Kylan, telling them to find Gurjin and go to Ha'rar, where her mother will grant them safe passage through their kingdom as she followed Emperor SkekSo. Tavra stumbled upon him Changeling the Darkening in his Sceptor but she quickly hid away before he could spot her.

Tavra was eventually captured by the Skeksis and thrown into their dungeons.
