Tauna is a foxtaur vixen who hitches a ride aboard the Folly to travel to Chakona after Tigerlily calls in a favour from Neal Foster. Tauna is an athletic young vixen whose smoke-gray coat had golden blond tips. A wide black stripe, with matching crossbars at her shoulders and forequarters, runs from the nape of her neck to the base of her ivory-tipped tail. Her thick black hair is pulled back into a braided topknot; and a modified halter top - the only garment that she wears - protects four small breasts. She is a hunter vixen who had to leave behind her partners - Siri, Jaishu and Zia. Tauna goes to Chakona to meet her girlfriend, Vanessa Saroian, and to ask her to be her denmate.
