Playability Playable
Neighborhood Belladonna Cove

Tara DeBateau is a pre-made playable teenage Sim, residing in Belladonna Cove, the neighborhood shipped with The Sims 2: Apartment Life. She is a Knowledge Sim with short red hair and brown eyes. Tara was adopted by Armand DeBateau when she was a child. Now she is a teenager, and has a good relationship with her acquaintance Justin Cleveland, whom she helps with his homework. This may mean that they are meant to start a romantic relationship at some point after the game begins. Unusually, neither Tara, nor her father have the memory of her getting into Private School.

Being adopted, Tara's memories show she learned her toddler skills from the Mystery Sim, who is usually used for player-created Sims who are young adults[TS2:U] or older. If a family adopts a child in-game, though, they will not have memories of learning their toddler skills, or any other memories of their birth parents. Strangely enough, Tara is just short from becoming friends with her father's ex-wife, Jessica Peterson. When the family is first played, Tara is 15 days from being an adult.
