|Chronological and political Information|
"The Devil's Carnival: Alleluia!" (pictured only)
Tamara was apparently out on a date with her "bad boy" boyfriend when he did something that caused her to leave him. Her boyfriend managed to reach her just before she could drive away and told her to open the door, promising that what he did to upset her would never happen again. Tamara didn't do as he said, which caused her boyfriend to become enraged and shoot her, killing her.
Immediately after that, Tamara's car started shaking and the air around her became cold, when she looked out the window she saw the silhouettes of The Ticket Keeper and The Tamer, who had come to take her to The Devil's Carnival ("Heaven's All Around").
Tamara wakes up to find herself in the Big Top of The Devil's Carnival, where Lucifer manipulates her into singing a duet with him, seduces her and either puts her to sleep or kills her ("In All My Dreams I Drown").
When Tamara wakes up again, she is wearing a 1950's frog-themed dress and hairstyle. She wanders around the carnival until she meets the carnival's resident bad boy: The Scorpion, who was locked up in a cage by The Ticket Keeper's orders. He persuades her to let him out of the cage, promising that he could protect her. As soon as he gains her trust, Scorpion tells her to wait for him and runs away. Tamara follows him into a tent where she finds him making out with The Painted Doll. Heartbroken, Tamara tries to leave but Scorpion won't let her, accusing her of being a liar as she said she trusted him.
Tamara takes the blame, forgives Scorpion and agrees to be his assistant for his act. She allows Scorpion to tie her up in a wheel and Scorpion assures her that he won't stab her...before stabbing her in the heart seconds later with the same switch-blade that she gave him to help him escape from the cage ("Trust Me").
After Tamara "dies" she is left tied in the wheel while The Painted Doll sings. After she is done, Painted Doll kisses Tamara on the cheek. She is not seen again. ("Prick! Goes The Scorpion's Tale").
When "Ms. Merrywood" arrives to Heaven she is shown a photo of John and Tamara and is asked if she knows them, implying that Tamara was eventually reformed and sent to Heaven.
Tamara's sin is gullibity. She always pursued relationships with dangerous men and blindly trusted everyone who crossed her path, even when those people ended up hurting her. Even though being naive isn't much of a sin, it makes her fatally flawed beyond repair in God's opinion, who sends people to Hell over small imperfections.
Tamara is a teenaged girl with long, glossy brown hair and green eyes. Her age is unknown, although she is most likely between the ages of sixteen and nineteen since she is old enough to drive.
The night of her death, she wore a teal floral dress and a dark blue cardigan.
When she arrived to the carnival, she was dressed in a cartoonish 1950's outfit and hairstyle, which consisted on a pink-collared short petticoat green dress with frog patterns and a large green waist ribbon, black and white saddle shoes and pink socks. Her hair was curled up and tied in a ponytail with a large pink ribbon and had long curled up bangs.
In "In All My Dreams I Drown", she was dressed in a long, white, vintage nightgown with cap sleeves, light pink-colored seams in the chest that have flower pattens on them, a hot pink bow about 6 inches tall at the center back and what appears to be black socks. She also holds an old lantern in her hand. 
Tamara's most prominent trait is that she is too trusting and quick to forgive. She is also very nice and innocent, making her easy to manipulate.
Tamara's boyfriend was abusive with her while she put up with this treatment for awhile until he did something that caused her to leave him, only for him to kill her.
In "In All My Dreams I Drown", Lucifer manipulates Tamara into singing a duet with him. She puts her trust on Lucifer, he seduces her and either kills or puts her to sleep.
When Tamara met The Scorpion she quickly developed a crush on him due to his "bad boy" personality. He smoothly flirted with her as part of his act and she blindly trusted him, even after she caught him making out with Painted Doll.
