A Family whom The Governor encountered in the time between the Season 3 finale up to the first half of Season 4.
----
* AdaptationNameChange: Their (sur)name is Chalmers in the comics, not Chambler.
* TheHecateSisters: Tara is a DeadpanSnarker, making her the crone, Lily is literally the mother/matron, and Meghan is the maiden, being the young carefree girl.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: Technically to Meghan since the TV's version of April is [[CompositeCharacter fused]] with Meghan's mother, Lily Caul.
* SiblingYinYang: Tara curses and snarks a lot more, along with being more distrustful and less polite, while Lily was politer, more trusting, and less snarky.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tara is a cop-in-training {{Tomboy}} before the ZombieApocalypse, while Lily is the more feminine a former nurse.

!!Tara Chambler
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc3838f2788f3b0b977898dda3e49704.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:300:"''I know it sucks and it's scary, but it's time to be brave.''"]]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Alanna Masterson

-->''"We're friends. We have each other's backs. That's it. That's how it works."''

Tara was attending the Atlanta Police Academy before the ZombieApocalypse began, but was picked up by her father and sister before Atlanta fell to the walkers.

After meeting the Governor and losing her family to his actions, Tara assisted Glenn in his quest to reunite with Maggie to atone for her role in the assault on the prison. After the survivors of the prison are reunited and liberated from Terminus, she remains with the group and develops close friendships with Glenn, Maggie, and Eugene. After the group reaches the Alexandria Safe-Zone, she is assigned a job as a supply runner for the community.
----
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Possibly. While her comic/novel counterpart is described as overweight, it isn't specifically stated if she's a BigBeautifulWoman or not.
* AdaptationalBadass: Downplayed, if not subverted, at least at first. She becomes much more competent after a few appearances and quickly overtakes her novel counterpart.
* AdaptationalCurves: Her comic/novel counterpart is described as overweight, which this Tara is obviously not.
* AdaptationExpansion[=/=]AscendedExtra: In the comics, Tara was a minor character whom the Governor encountered before going to Woodbury. In the show, she has a slightly altered characterization and is becoming a main character.
* AdaptationalSexuality: She is a lesbian, while her comic/novel counterpart was straight.
* {{Adorkable}}: {{Squee}}s over finding a yo-yo in a backpack in episode 5x07. Even funnier since the show made it out to be a dramatic reveal.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: She is very antisocial and wary of other people aside from her family. This changes after joining Rick's group, and Tara actually becomes one of the more outgoing and friendly members once she gets to know everyone.
* TheAtoner: She says outright that she deserves to die for her part in the destruction of the prison and agrees to help Glenn find Maggie in an attempt to make amends. In reality, Tara spent the entire battle hiding and had nothing to do with any of the deaths.
* ButchLesbian: Of the small and wiry variety.
* CharacterTic: A fist bump to show that she is cool with someone. So far she has done it with The Governor, Rick, and Eugene.
* CoolAunt: To Meghan.
* CovertPervert: Abraham mentions having caught her staring down Rosita's shirt, and Tara later takes a peek at Abraham and Rosita having sex after having caught Eugene doing the same.
* DeadpanSnarker: She snarks quite a bit, but it's pretty obvious she is doing so to cover for being nowhere near as confident as she appears. After her HeelFaceTurn, she's no longer trying to appear confident and is making herself genuinely useful, while still retaining a nice bit of genuine snark for the right occasion.
-->'''Tara:''' (''after the groups bus crashes and catches fire'') Maybe we could find some bikes. Bikes don't burn.
* EasilyForgiven: Maggie forgives her for being part of The Governor's forces that attacked the prison, which ultimately led to Hershel's death. Of course, Tara didn't fire a single shot and quickly dropped her gun in favor of hiding upon her HeelRealization.
* FanservicePack: The {{Expository Hairstyle Change}}s in Season 5 has been good for her.
%% * FairCop
* FauxActionGirl: Compare her to Alisha. At least, until "Inmates" where, after getting some pep talk from Glenn, she joins him in killing some Walkers effectively. Her apparent lack of effectiveness appears to be due to [[HeelRealization understanding what the Governor is]] rather than actual ineffectiveness, as a result.
* GenreBlindness: Despite being almost two years into the apocalypse, she still hadn't figured out to kill walkers by shooting them in the head. Somewhat justified by the fact she would have been [[DamnYouMuscleMemory taught to aim]] for center mass at the Police Academy and hasn't encountered that many walkers.
* HeelRealization: When Rick makes an impassioned argument for peace and forgiveness, Tara quickly realizes that the Governor has been lying about the supposed 'killers' in the prison. It really hits home when he beheads Hershel.
* IncompatibleOrientation: With Eugene, who was interested in her. The two of them become still become friends. Abraham also bemusedly notes her interest in Rosita.
* [[SirSwearsALot Lady Swears-a-Lot]]: Is rather prone to cursing.
* LesbianCop: Well, cop in training, but the trope still applies.
* LovableCoward: Spends most of the prison battle cowering behind a tank. Then again, at least a small part of that is out of reluctance as she seemed to favor the peaceful solution and is shocked when the Governor kills Hershel.
* MookFaceTurn: Teams up with Glenn post-prison battle.
* MythologyGag: According to TheOtherWiki and WordOfGod, the casting call name for her character was Melody. In the novel, Tara Chalmers is a musician before the outbreak.
* NotQuiteDead: She is knocked out by an explosion in "Spend" and presumed dead. Luckily for her, Eugene TookALevelInBadass in the same episode. He subsequently rescues her and takes her back to Alexandria, where she is patched up and recovers.
* OddFriendship: With Eugene. She still defends him [[spoiler: even after he reveals that he was lying about the cure]] and the two of them are shown playing cards on the way to Alexandria. He later admits to her that she is his only friend.
* PluckyComicRelief: Becomes this after joining the group.
* RavenHairIvorySkin: Has dark hair as well as a pale complexion.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After seeing Hershel get killed, she decided that she doesn't want to take part in the prison takeover. After a few close ricochets and a grenade too close for comfort, she literally just wanders off away from the direction of the fighting.
* ShellShockedVeteran: Glenn finds her caged in at the prison holding a loaded pistol, staring into the distance.
* SoleSurvivor: As of "Inmates", she is the last surviving member of the Governor's second group and of the Chambler family.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Of the Governor's militia in "Too Far Gone". She is the only one who seems to favor a peaceful solution, judging from her shocked reaction when the Governor kills Hershel and her unsure expression during Rick's speech. She is also the only one who doesn't open fire on the prison survivors, though it's unclear how much of that is reluctance and how much just fear.
* TokenMinority: She was the first gay character (and only one, for a while).
* TookALevelInBadass: After getting over her HeroicBSOD, she appears much more competent in "Inmates" than her previous appearances, taking out several walkers singlehandedly after Glenn collapses. Previously, she was insecure and purposefully projected a 'badass' image, but since her HeelFaceTurn she's dropped the act and focused on being efficient and brave. It's worked well for her and she's become the formidable young woman she was pretending to be.
** In "Remember", she doesn't hesitate to stand up to Aidan and Nicholas when they attempt to carelessly string up a walker during their scouting patrol. Unlike Deanna's sons and the people of Alexandria, Tara has been living outside the walls for over two years and is well aware of the dangers that come with underestimating walkers and other people. Along with Glenn and Noah, she storms back to the community gates and refuses to work with them again.
* YoungerAndHipper: She is the older sister of April Chalmers in the comics.

Lilly is an oncology nurse living with her daughter Megan, sister Tara, and father David in his apartment in rural Georgia. They take in the Governor after the fall of Woodbury, having no clue about his dark past, and Lily begins a relationship with him.
----
* AdaptationalBadass: ZigZagged. While she's an ActionSurvivor, [[CompositeCharacter her three comic counterparts]] are vastly different characters; April Chalmers is a non-fighter, while Lily Caul is a competent ex-military. Lillian Chalmers is a PosthumousCharacter.

In the source material, April Chalmers survives the book in which she appears and Lily Caul ultimately survives taking shelter in the prison after killing the Governor to avoid the incoming herd of Walkers, becoming the new leader of Woodbury.

* SparedByTheAdaptation: Her most minor counterpart, Lillian Chalmers, is a PosthumousCharacter. She dies in the mid-Season 4 finale. Ironically, two of her prominent counterparts [[DeathByAdaptation lived in the comics/novel continuity]].
