GENERAL CHARACTER STATISTICS

Character Name: Tamara Jean Sparrow

Gender: Female

Age: 28

Occupation: Private Investigator

Zodiac Sign and/or Relation to a Sign: Cancer. Investigating the business of Joseph Taurus.

PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

General Appearance: Tamara takes her personal health and fitness seriously, but not to the extremes. She maintains a healthy weight 125lbs at 5’6″, and moderate curves by visiting the gym once a week. Because he business relies heavily on dealing with people, she keeps her black hair cut in a stylish length, and rarely wears more makeup than a bit of eyeliner and some lipstick. Brown eyes. Wears a lot of skirts and nice blouses.

Strengths: Tamara has taken Self Defense Classes, and likes those fun Tae Kwan Do exercise videos. She rarely has to make use of those skills, but it’s always good for the exercise.

Weaknesses: She cannot swim or hold her breath under water without holding her nose. There was never any reason for her to learn.

MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

Current Goal/Purpose: Close the Case on Joseph Taurus, or at least provide her client with enough information that they are satisfied.

Talents: Tamara enjoys word searches, crosswords, or other word game puzzles.

Inabilities: She’ll too often rely on stereotype profiling, and neglect to consider something outside of the box. Once she gets a theory or idea in mind, it takes a lot of contradictory evidence to change it.

Fears: Creepy crawly buggies will send her in to a fit. She is actually very intimidated by people who are bigger and scarier than she is. Verbal and physical confrontation is a problem for her.

General Personality: Tamara is impressionable, polite, and professional. It requires a great amount of people skill to do her job, and she’s taken a great deal of time to develop her social skills. She knows how to sound sincere even when her brain is thinking otherwise, and how to step up and take charge of a situation if something gets out of hand. Her personality doesn’t stand out amongst a crowd, but rather mingles in to it. Blending in with the people around her. As far as everyone is concerned she is a well rounded, charming young woman with a good head on her shoulders.

Inner Personality: On her own, Tamara is much less extroverted than what she might seem. She prefers keeping to herself both mentally and physically. Not because she hates or fears people, but simply because she enjoys the calm solitude. Coming from a large family left her with little private time, and now she is taking advantage of living on her own. Her job provides her with plenty of social interaction and stimulation, that she can return home afterwards and enjoy her space.

Secret: None. Yet.

HISTORIC BACKGROUND

General History: Tamara Sparrow was born as the 3rd child to two loving parents. She is the middle child of 5 sisters, and never lacked in attention… but strongly desired privacy! A house filled with women was often times a bomb waiting to explode. Nevertheless, they were a close and happy family. She graduated high school with honors, majored in Sociology and Criminal Justice in college.

Law and Journalism is a running tradition in the Sparrow family. Police Officers, Investigators, Journalists, Lawyers. Her father and mother own their own Law firm, where two of her uncles are retired cops. Her eldest sister just passed the Bar to join her parents at the firm, the second oldest is a cop in a nearby city, her younger sister is studying journalism, while only the very youngest is doing something outside of tradition and is trying to make it as an actress out in Hollywood.

Tamara herself chose Private Investigating, as she loved untangling a good mystery but couldn’t see herself being able to handle any real danger that usually came along with being a cop. Physical confrontation is something she avoids. Most of her cases involve finding people or digging out information about people.

Present Life: The recent case about Joseph Taurus is a special situation. Before his murder, she was hired to find out what sort of business Taurus was getting in to – his family was afraid he was doing something illegal or getting tied in with the mob. She was on the case for three days before he ended up murdered. Now, the family believe it was a mob hit, where the police think it was by the Zodiac Killer. Tamara has found herself intrigued and unable to pull herself out. She plans on finishing her investigation on Joseph Taurus.

Special Historic Notes:
– Hired to find out Joseph Taurus’ Secret Life.
– Three days after she started her investigation, Joseph Taurus was murdered.
