Not much is known about Tamara's early life. Tamara was known as a typical mermaid with siren-like qualities, which made her a dangerous threat.
Battle at Whitecap Bay
"Are you the one who sings?" "Aye." "Are you my jolly sailor bold?" ―Tamara and Scrum When the Queen Anne's Revenge arrived at Whitecap Bay, Blackbeard ordered his crew to make a trap for the mermaids, by sending them in the longboats and using his own men as a living bait. As the mermaids didn't come, Gunner forced Scrum to sing so he could attract them. Scrum's song, My Jolly Sailor Bold, soon attracted the attention of Tamara, who appeared at the end of the longboat.
