Tariq is an ancient Carpathian that lives in the United States. He seems close to turning vampire.

Dark Crime and Dark Carousel[edit | edit source]

It is revealed that he and Maksim own a successful night club together. He finds Charlotte outside his club, facing Fridrick Astor, a childhood friend turned vampire. It is later revealed that Tariq collects antique carousel horses, which Charlotte is passionate about restoring.

At the end of Dark Crime, Tariq is trying to get guardianship of the four children (Danny, Amelia, Liv, and Bella) that Emeline and Blaze saved from Vadim. All four children have psychic abilities. At the beginning of Dark Carousel, Tariq is days away from having guardianship of the children.

Dark Legacy[edit | edit source]

Tariq has gained custody of all four children. He learns that Amelia has a splinter of Vadim inside her and is being forced to harm those she loves. He is at a loss on how to save his daughter. But, with the help of Dragomir and Emeline, his family is safe. It is revealed that he will be the leader of the Carpathian stronghold in the U.S. because Mikhail sees his abilities and fortitude, and orders it so, with Gary as his second in command. Tariq is not happy, but he swore an oath to his prince and, though the burden is heavy and unwanted, he accepts his duty.

Dark Sentinel[edit | edit source]

There is a moment where Lorraine sees a power line between Gary and Tariq and Andor explains how they are trying to learn how to work together. When Tariq tries to help look for the reptile/bug/thing that Sergey had put into Lorraine to get to Elisabeta as she healed in the ground, every ancient and Gary in the healing chamber told him that he could not set foot on the soil. Gary made the mistake of saying that Tariq had to stay safe, and Andor sympathized with Tariq, as he was now told he could not hunt as he had been for centuries and hide behind a wall of hunters, similar to how Mikhail is treated. However, the members of the Brotherhood explained that they all look to Tariq to aid and guide them as they know very little of the modern world. Though, with Tariq being forced to act as leader at the U.S. Stronghold, Sandu down plays his healing abilities so that he isn't forced into taking responsibility.

Dark Illusion[edit | edit source]

Though not actively in the book, Tariq and Gary have arranged for Julija to replay her memories so that they can relay everything to Mikhail. Isai assures her that he will inform them that they are only allowed to look at her memories from the time she broke away from her family to warn the prince up to when Xavier's spellbook was destroyed, so that any event with Barnabas would not be witnessed by Gary, who would be conducting the inquiry.

Dark Song[edit | edit source]

Tariq showed signs that, like Sandu and Dragomir, someone or something had entered the compound and making every ancient, bound or not, act as if they needed violence or were seconds away from turning vampire. Elisabeta said that the anger was like red streaks on his brain, but the sad part was that they were etched deep, as if they had had more time to embed themselves.
