Mother Tara was a cheery halfling from the Vilhon Reach, who owned Mother Tara's Festhall in Shadowdale.[1]


Tara had dark curly hair which was graying.[1]


She held the deed on a house next to her festhall known as Mane's Manor, and would rent the place out to adventurers or other large parties.[3] In all her operations, Mother Tara managed aboveboard and honest establishments, keeping her reputation intact.[1]


Around 1374 DR, the Zhentarim took control of Shadowdale and all establishments, including Tara's festhall and manor.[2]
