Sound Engineer, Disc Jockey
TARIA KACARDI was an orphan in Starlight House when Jem and the Holograms became famous. Jem was a hero to her when she was younger, while Jerrica Benton, Kimber Benton and the rest of the Holograms were like sisters. So since she was little, she practiced the guitar and other instruments, as well as song, to hopefully make it into the music industry. She also knows a few things about a sound board and can be an impressive DJ when she needs to be. Jem and the Holograms seem to have 'passed her the torch' though, and given her the earrings to Synergy, the focus Synergy uses to create holograms from. As STARR, Taria leads the band the Moonshadows.
Taria grew up in Starlight house, the orphanage Jerrica Benton ran while she was part of Jem and the Holograms. Most of her friendships have been established there, and she is quite loyal to Starlight house and Starlight Music. She does not know that Jerrica benton is Jem, but Jem is a hero of hers, and Jerrica and the Holograms are much like sisters to her. She has also formed a bit of a band out of her friends called the 'Moonshadows'. Her best friend is in that band, and probably one of the few people that knows she's Starr, the lead singer of the Moonshadows.
