History:
Tara Lysander is the third child of the Lysander family. However, the only sign of her existence is a creak in an empty house that could easily be mistaken for the wind or a childish giggle that makes people think the house is haunted. At times, a face can be seen in the Lysander's livingroom window, but nothing can be found in the large house upon further inspection. And the Lysander house is huge. It once belonged to an old man that passed away, and the house was sold by his greedy daughter. However, a family harboring a Forbidden Child couldn't ask for anything more. The house has many secret passageways and hidden doors, leading throughout the entirety of it, including places in the walls and a hidden cellar. For sixteen years, Tara has lived in the house, memorized the maze, and made people in the neighborhood think they're crazy.

However, Tara's life has not been all about shenanigans and exploring the old house. Sometimes, the Population Police would come by and she had to stay in the cellar alone for days on end with nothing to do. That is until Tara discovered books and writing. Both of them were incredibly quite tasks that she could do for hours on end without being bored. She had her mother buy her books and pick up books from the library. Tara would devour them within a few days. Whenever her mother couldn't make a trip to the bookstore or the library, Tara would write. She was prone to writing fantasies because she could make up the world in her head, not having to know anything about the outside world.

Still, Tara was curious about the real world, which she had only seen in fleeting glimpses. Her older sister Amelia was the one that tried to help her understand the real world. She was a traveling photographer, so she had seen a large portion of the world and had been to every state in the US at least once. She sent pictures to Tara who oohed and awed over them. The pictures are pinned up all over her walls in the cellar. Tara's father was a high school would bring her school work, another thing Tara excelled in. She would often study for several hours, just happy to have something to do. Tara became very interested in biology and chemistry, because they were the closest she could come to understanding the outside world.

Tara's brother Jackson would also try to make Tara comfortable with her life. He was more of the outdoorsy type, so there was very little he could actually teach her about. So, he did the only inside thing he really knew about: the guitar. He had to be more careful about this than the other family members did because the guitar makes noise. So, he started giving a boy from across the street lessons. Tara would listen through the walls and learn that way. Tara and Jackson were very close, it was a wonder they weren't twins considering how alike they were. He would try to explain the outside world to her to the best of his abilities and was even planning on sneaking her out one night before the Accident happened.

Tara woke up to her mother's sobbing and the voice of men she didn't know. She quietly crept out of bed and through the walls to see what was wrong. Only two words rang out perfectly clear: "Jackson...accident..."

Jackson had been on his way home from a party when he was in a car accident. The police were able to deduce that it was the other driver that was intoxicated, not Jackson. However, Jackson had severed his spinal cord and was unable to move from the upper torso down. Tara was devastated. She was not allowed to leave the house to see Jackson and has not talked to him in quite some time.

With new vigor, Tara started playing the guitar again. She became determined to live out her brother's dream of being a rockstar because she could not. She practiced whenever she could and hopes to show him what she can do someday. Recently, Tara has become more and more angry at the world for keeping her locked away. She knows that her dreams will come to nothing in the end if she has to remain invisible.

Recently, she has stumbled upon a chat room for the Forbidden Children when she was on the computer (not that she's supposed to be). She is thinking about joining the revolt but has yet to determine if she will.
