Stahma Tarr, Defiance
Stahma Tarr (Jaime Murray)
On futuristic sci-fi drama Defiance, Stahma Tarr was underworld racketeer Datak Tarr’s wife and a member of the patriarchal Castithan alien species. Coming from old money and very cunning, she was beautiful, loyal, and appeared to be the perfect picture of a Castithan wife. Beneath the surface, however, she sought to break free from the traditional subservient role assigned her by her caste. Not satisfied with Datak’s station in the town, Stahma and felt that she and her husband should have more power and it was noted by another character that she should be considered far more dangerous than her husband.
Kenya Rosewater was the human proprietor of a brothel, and Stahma came to asked her to teach her son in the bedroom arts, though when Kenya was surprised and amused at her request, Stahma felt ashamed. Kenya tried to make it up to her and asked her to join her for a drink, and Stahma shared things from her past. Eventually the conversation became a physical event and the two started a sexual relationship. Later, Kenya refused to be with Stahma’s husband Datak; when Stahma spoke with Kenya and asked her why, Kenya replied that she would not take part in something that obviously hurt Stahma.
Stahma told Kenya that she was going to leave Datak and wanted Kenya to come with her, however, she instead poisoned her and buried her alive.
