Family and BackgroundEdit
Tamara’s parents are Terri Riley and Tatum Riley. Terri is the older sister to Roscoe Riley. Terri and Tatum gave birth to two daughters, Tamara and Berry. Tamara’s Uncle Roscoe grew up to go into a life of crime, as Tamara’s little sister joined the Army straight out of high school. Tamara and Berry’s parents died of an incurable illness very early into her Young Adulthood. Tamara soon went to university to study Business. Tamara’s sister eventually became a military Lieutenant and married Tamara’s co-worker, Willis Gellar. Berry and Willis gave birth to Gary Gellar, Tamara’s loser nephew. Tamara was eventually laid off from her job due to the economy and was kicked out of her apartment, so went to move in with her uncle Roscoe in Pleasantview. Eventually, Tamara found out about her uncle’s criminal life and it made her very upset with him. As she went to confront him about it though, she was stopped by one of his bodyguards, Anna Pinkerton. This was right before his systematic execution, which also claimed Anna’s husband and brother-in-law in the process. Tamara soon after moved to Moonlight Bay with Anna Pinkerton to start a new life away from all her tragedy. Tamara’s nephew Gary Gellar, eventually went to “temporally” live with them as he attended boarding school in Moonlight Bay, but still lives with them, today. Despite all the tragic events of Tamara’s life, though, she still amazingly remains optimistic.
Tamara is the niece to underground Crime Boss Roscoe P. Goldchain. Tamara was completely unaware of his criminal life until shortly before his death in the Season one finale, however. Up until then, they had a very good relationship. Tamara is also the aunt to Gary Gellar and the little sister to his mother, Berry. Tamara and Gary have a great big sister-little brother type of relationship. Tamara lives with Anna Pinkerton, who was her uncle’s top enforcer. Although she highly dissaproves of Anna’s career choices, she and her have grown to become Best Friends. Tamara is also good friends with the Idaho family of Moonlight Bay and the Zhang family, of which she had a small fling with Michael Zhang. Tamara is single and still looking, but has been unable to find the right man for her, yet. In high school, she had a major, almost unhealthy crush on her History teacher. This of course, was quickly shot down by the married man.
