Background[edit | edit source]
Tara is the illegitimate daughter of Viktor Markov, king of Markovia. To prevent a scandal, she is sent to live in the United States. Before leaving for the US, however, Tara gains earth related powers from experimentation by Dr. Helga Jace. As a metahuman, Tara feels as though she and her kind should rule over the less powerful.
At the age of fifteen, Tara adopts the identity Terra and joins the Teen Titans, growing close to Beast Boy. She is reunited with her half-brother Brion, now the superhero Geo-Force when the Titans and Outsiders join forces to battle the Fearsome Five.
Terra secretly collects the information on all of the Titans and shares them with Deathstroke, a mercenary who blames them for the death of his son. All of the Titans except Nightwing are captured by Deathstroke and brought to H.I.V.E.. Nightwing and Deathstroke's other son, Jericho, infiltrate the building where the Titans are being kept and Jericho possesses his father. Terra believes that Deathstroke has betrayed her and the last remainder of her sanity disipates. She uses her powers to bring down the whole facility in an attempt to kill everyone in it, including herself, but Deathstroke and the Titans are all able to escape in time.
A statue memorializing Terra is placed in the Titans Tower and her treachery is kept a secret. The Titans never even intended to tell Geo-Force the truth, instead saying that his sister had died valiantly opposing Deathstroke and H.I.V.E., though Batman later reveals the truth to Brion.
