Tavra was a Gelfling princess of the Vapra Clan and a daughter of All-Maudra Mayrin.

History

Displeased with how the Skeksis and her mother handled the Law, Tavra formed a secret relationship with the Sifa Gelfling Onica and hoped to set sail with her and the rest of the Sifan clan, though decided to remain in Harar to help her older sister Seladon and her younger sister Brea as both looked to her for guidance though disliked each other, both of whom would often come at odds with their mother the All-Maudra.

Tavra pulled strings to allow her sister Brea to attend the tithing ceremony, asking only that she not embarrass her or ask the Skeksis questions. En route however, Tavra found Brea gone, gone to ask the Skeksis a question. Brea ended up falling in front of their carriage and was escorted back to the citadel by skekLach and skekOk, who favored Brea. Tavra nonetheless complained about Brea embarrassing her.[1] Later, as Tavra's mother Mayrin sat in judgment of Brea for wiping Elder Cadia's memory, Mayrin sent Tavra away to assuage the angry Sifans.[2]

Standing at court with Seladon later, Tavra stayed quiet as usual while Seladon complained that she had made the right decision in sending Brea to the Order of Lesser Service. Seladon however became angry when Tavra did not agree or otherwise voice her thoughts, so Tavra cut Seladon to the quick by saying that she was truly angry at their mother Mayrin for not acknowledging the work Seladon does. Tavra then supported Seladon, until she was called off by Mayrin to hunt Rian for allegedly murdering another Vapra Clan member. 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. Tavra then continued on.[3]

Tavra caught up with Rian in a Podling bar held at sword-point by Naia, and went to prevent Naia from taking her. They both began to argue, with Naia saying she had permission from Maudra Laesid and Tavra saying she had permission from All-Maudra Mayrin, until Kylan interrupted their argument to diffuse the situation. The argument began to resurface until Rian brought out the essence of Mira, asking them to dreamfast with him to learn the truth. Tavra initially declined, fearing the "madness" Rian might spread, but when Kylan agreed to it, she acquiesced, saying her mother would want to know the whole truth. They dreamfast together, realize the truth, and Tavra pledges to overthrow the Skeksis, going with Naia to help her free Gurjin.[4]

Splitting from Naia and Kylan in order to spy on the Skeksis, Tavra discovered that Emperor skekSo was drawing power from the Darkening, but she made a noise and had to retreat.[5] She was quickly captured however, and reassured the other paladins that were placed in her cage when the Skeksis turned on the castle guards, who told Tavra about her mother Mayrin's death at the hands of skekVar.[6]
