She is currently active Female Wrestler in Strong Style Wrestling, as the Leader of the Wrestling Group known as: Ronin. When she isn't booked in SSW, Nova is also wrestling in the Alphas Division for a company called Omega Wrestling Alliance. Known for her sarcastic promoing skills and hardcore/headstrong attitude, Nova has showed everyone that female wrestlers aren't always made out of the same mold. In late June 2017, Nova was inducted into the EAW Hall of Fame and became the GM of Empire before departing from the company after five years.
Nova was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. She was raised by her single Father, Jonathan Evans, the owner of the Michigan Bar: The Drop Box Bar. Nova doesn't recall her Childhood really, only that most of the years wasn't so pleasant living with her father. When Nova hit her late teens, she was kicked out of her home and spent a few days on the streets of Detroit till she was met by Madam Vega, The owner of Madam Vega's Wrestling School for Girls. After Madam Vega took Nova in, she spent two years living with the Vega Family, training along side of them as a wrestler. During that time with the Vega's, Nova went to Southwestern High School located in the Southwest part of Detroit, Michigan. In 2000, Nova graduated from High School and went on to continue her wrestling training with the Vega's. While training, Nova wrestled in Detroit's Indies district till she was called up to her first professional Wrestling Company in 2008.
World Wrestling Association
Tarah Nova first started out in a small company called the World Wrestling Association (WWA). Her goals there was to make Mischief and win championships. Only one of those Goals where met before the company closed. The moment Tarah Nova walked threw the doors of WWA, the company was changed. Either it was by her skills in the ring or the pranks she played on her fellow wrestlers, Tarah left her mark in there. After three long months of being in WWA, Tarah and the other Stunners were thrown into a Royal Rumble to see which one of them would be in the World Heavyweight Championship Tournament. In the end, Tarah Nova won the Royal Rumble by throwing CM Chloe out to be placed in WHC Tournament. Sadly, not a week before the Tournament was due to start, WWA shut down due to lack of wrestlers.
Answers Wrestling Federation
The Pipe-bombshell Movement
Answers Wrestling Federation (AWF) was where Tarah Nova found her voice. Just like WWA, she started growing into a better wrestler and even more into a hot headed young woman. Since joining AWF, Tarah found it hard not to notice the lack of respect from the superstars, especially from the AWF Champion himself, Mr DEDEDE. The superstars in AWF didn't care about the Dominas matches or even if they were on the show and after weeks of them pushing the Dominas around, Tarah Nova finally snapped. In the middle of an Number One Contenders match for AWF Empress Championship, Mr DEDEDE came out to the ring, costing Tarah the match. That was the last straw for her. After the
music stopped, Tarah got into Mr DEDEDE's face and dropped one of the biggest pipe-bombs any Domina had done. The following week, Tarah came out and demanded a new contract with it saying she was the number one contender for Mr DEDEDE's championship or she quits. Shockingly, Tarah bullied her way into getting her new contract.
Nova VS Stone
However, her happy days were short lived when the Southern Domina, Alexius Stone, came on the scene and stole Tarah's new contract. With Alexius Stone holding onto Tarah's contract, Tarah was back to demanding for a match--only this time, it was for her own contract. There was new found rage running through Tarah Nova's veins and nothing was going to stop her from get her contract back. Each week when ever Alexius or Tarah had a match, the other was out there waiting for the right time to attack. After a month of the random attacks on each others, AWF's president James Shield gave Tarah what she wanted a Match. The match called "Tarah's Million Dollar Contract' match" was long and brutal. In the middle of the match, Tarah turned the tables on Alexius, ending the match with a fetal blow from a Trickshot. As the new number one contender for AWF Championship, nothing was going to stand in her way.
Nova VS DEDEDE and The end of AWF
Nova VS DEDEDE went on to be one of the must see matches of AWF's history. One represented all of the Female wrestlers that has ever step foot into a ring and the other represented the old school wrestlers. The match went on for about 30 minutes. Closing to the end on the match, Tarah knocked DEDEDE out--or so she thought. When she moved in for the pin, DEDEDE rolled her up and got the pin himself. With Tarah failing on beating Mr.DEDEDE that day, she went into a depressed state and slowly faded out of the lime light of AWF. Months pasted and Tarah was getting ready to return but close to her return, AWF closed down. Jobless, Tarah finally gave up and moved to the one company that she knew would never close.
Extreme Elite Answers Wrestling
Straight Edge Vixen
After AWF, Tarah Nova was called to the best company in the world:
Extreme Elite Answers Wrestling. In the beginning of her days in EAW, Tarah Nova brought in her outside world to the ring. Being the only Straight Edge ever in EAW gave her a chip on her shoulder and made her think she was better then the others. Tarah first made her debut against a Wild card Vixen named Kristina. While the match against Kristina didn't last more then a couple of minutes, Nova showed the Vixens locker Room that she wasn't a force to be reckoned with. As the days went on, Tarah grew better and better, facing Vixens like Whitney, Raine, Stephie Love and even the tag team of Vanessa and The Vixens Champion, Cassandra or better known as The Lyndivias. At the EAW's event: Dynasty vs. Showdown,
Tarah Nova was thrown into a tag team match where she teamed with Stephie Love against The Lyndivias. Starting the match against the Vixens Champion, Tarah showed Cassandra that she's wasn't just any normal newbie Vixen. While forcing the Champion into a corner with hard hits and attacks, Tarah landed a hard elbow to the nose of Cassandra; breaking it. All through the match Nova showed her dominance against the Lyndivias till she was forced tagged back Stephie Love. After that, Stephie Love was mauled by Vanessa and was finished off by a Tragic Expression by bleeding Cassandra. With a huge loss under Tarah Nova's belt, she began to push herself harder then ever before.
Everyone Has A Dark Side
A Month after Tarah Nova debuted, she was recruited by a man named Dark Demon, Leader of a Team called "Demon’s Council". At the time of the recruitment, Demon's Council was feuding against Tarah's old indie friend, Zack Crash. Now on a team and fueled by this new found rage towards Crash, Nova started to fight more dirty and faze into a dark point in her life. As the Feud between Demon and Zack went on, Tarah found herself in a lot more matches against headline wrestlers like Matt Miles, Jaywalker, Heart Break Boy and Cameron Ella Ava. Just like in AWF, however, the Elitists believed that while their were in the ring, Vixens shouldn't be. They even went as far as saying to Tarah, "Your just a Vixen, what can a Vixen do?". Hearing this pushed her and made her want to show them herself that they were wrong.
Match after match, Nova, with Eddie Mack and Lucian Black by her side, showed fellow wrestlers that a Vixen can do whatever an Elitists can. After a while, Tarah found herself dragged into the middle of the Demon and Zack feud. She was placed in a match where she teamed up with Eddie Mack and Lucian Black against Zack Crash at Reckless Wiring. From the get go, Demon's Council was in control and it wasn't looking good for Zack as Team of Nova, Mack and Black took him down with deadly blows. Closer to the end of the match, Tarah found herself in a world of pain as she was speared through the ropes from fellow team partner, Lucian Black due to Crash dodging the spear. As Black attended to Nova, Mack was Stabbed in the mid-section with a shard of wood and hit with the "Rebel Yell" by Zack Crash; ending the match. After the loss to Zack Crash, Tarah and Demon's Council started to slowly drift apart when the true leader of the Council was shown--Cleopatra.
With the team under Cleopatra control, Tarah started to rebel against the team. Match after match, Tarah found herself blaming Cleopatra for her fails. When it came to the match against THOR at Dia Del Diablo was really the turning point for Tarah's Career. She was placed on the with Dark Demon and Cleopatra. As the match went on, the team couldn't get along and because of that, Tarah was the first one eliminate from the match due to being set on fire by Venom. After that night, Nova was hospitalized with third degree burns and was out of action for about 4 months.
The Return/Rise of The Vixen Killer
Four months later on a Episode of Showdown, Tarah Nova made her return home. While Cleopatra spoke about change within the Team of Demon's Council, Tarah appeared out of know where and attacked the Hall of Famer. after that fetal attack, Nova took her spot back by Demon's side--only for a short while. Later that same night, Tarah turned the tables on Demon and double crossed him to team with her fellow Detroit wrestler, Xavier Williams. Now with Xavier Williams feuding with against Dark Demon, Tarah had her eyes on his Queen, Cameron Ella Ava. The rivalries began after Tarah was kidnapped by Dark Demon and she swore to after she got saved, that she would kill the thing he loved the most--Cameron. On a taping of a Voltage, Tarah came out and assaulted the Hall of Fame Champion, scarring Cameron's face with a blade in the process. A week after, Cameron came out, spotting the scar, and promised Tarah’s downfall and they were granted a Blackout match at EAW's Shock Value. The Blackout match was long and brutal, showing how deadly Tarah Nova truly was. It started with Cameron having the upper hand but Tarah slowly took charge, taking the match outta the ring and up high over the stage. Tarah took the match to the top of the
Mini tron and tricked Cameron into following her. With both Vixens ten feet in the air, brutal fists and kicks were thrown from both sides. After sending a kick to Cameron's face, Cam started to bleed and started to get blood in her eye. Tarah, wasting little time, quickly sent elbows into Cameron but she grabbed Nova and bashed hr skull off the metal structure that they were on. Both Vixens were hanging onto the side, kicking and sending blows to each other but with one swift boot to the face, Tarah knocked Cameron Ella Ava off the mini-tron and down into the electric equipment. With the impact of Cameron's bod
y hitting the electric equipment, it explodes and sends electricity surging through Cameron Ella Ava's body, making Tarah winning the match. After the match, while Cameron was being carried out, Tarah stole the Hall of Fame Championship and started to claimed the title as her own. The Voltage after, Tarah had a funeral for Cameron Ella Ava and spoke how she am power to take the Hall of Fame Championship from her cold, dead hands. After showing photos of the hellish match at Shock Value, Cameron's music hit, showing a skipping Cherish dressed as Cameron Ella Ava. Tarah watched as the ghost of 'Cameron' skipped and laughed around the ring. But after that moment, the real Cameron appeared, attacking Tarah and went to steal back her championship but Nova was quicker. At the end of it all, Nova and Ava went on to feud for two month till the next FPV, where Ava was the victor of the feud.
Start of a New Age
Now fueled with Blind Fury and rage, Tarah went on a 'killing' spree; trying to find her place within the ranks of the division. Over the time span of August 2014 to the beginning of 2015, Nova single-handedly cleaned out the Vixens division and even turned on her own best friend, Xavier Williams during his feud with Lucian Black. After that, One by one, Tarah ended careers of Vixens as she tried to show her dominance within the brand. While she was on her Rampage, Tarah found herself in the number one contenders match at Fighting Spirit against Haruna. She had man fights before her but never one this important. It was at that Super Show where Tarah won her opportunity to go against Lethal, who was the current Vixens Champion. Before the match against lethal for The Vixens championship, the EAW universe was given an voting board to see which Vixens' finishing move would be banned from the match. Luckily, it was Lethal's finisher that was banned which led to her downfall. During the match at Reckless wiring, Tarah used Lethal's own finisher against her; winning the match. So on March 21st, 2015 Tarah Nova captured her first Championship in EAW and marking that day of when the Age of Nova began.
Age of Nova/Welcome to the FreakShow

Now throughout this whole Title reign Tarah had as Vixens' Champion, she was faced with the biggest match in her career. She was forced to defend her Championship at Pain for Pride 8 against the entire Vixens deficient. Once the match was official, many people in the company believed Tarah would lose the title due to being the odd woman out but once Pain for Pride came closer; people started to realized her actual worth.

That blindsided attack by Maddie lead Tarah to rethinking the way she became champion and at a EAW house show, Tarah admitted to the EAW universe that she made a monster within Maddie and was going to fix her wrongs. With Tarah now as the top face in the company, she went on to feuding with Madison for.

After 14 weeks off the road, Tarah returned to EAW on an episode of Dynasty; attacking Madison during her rematch for the Vixens Championship against Eris LeCava, re-fueling her feud with Madison which started at Pain for Pride 8. This attack on Madison lead to a match between the two at King of Elite. Before her match, Tarah was confronted back her old flame, Zach Genesis, who attempted to revive their relationship; only for Tarah to tell him she was 'of the market'. As he questioned her, Mr. DEDEDE came into view; kissing Tarah in front of Genesis and making their romantic relationship publicly known to the EAW universe. After that Segment, Tarah had her match which resulted in Tarah winning it via DQ due to Madison brutally attacking Tarah; slicing her throat with barbed wire. As the feud went on, Tarah debuted a new nickname, calling herself the "Leader of the Vixens Division" due to the fact that if it wasn't for her back as the Vixen Killer, there wouldn't be a Vixens Division to begin with.

Nova went on to saying how Cleo was to blame for all the losses she took in the number of weeks leading up to this point. After a few moments, Cleo came out to the ring with security guards on her tail; sending them to take care of Nova but Nova had other plans. Once the security guards entered the ring, Nova attacked but after sending on out of the ring with a Ether, the numbers began to get too much for her.
After being grabbed by security, Cleo began to mock Nova which led to Nova spitting in the GM's face and her getting dragged out of the arena. On April 20th, Cleo made it public that Tarah Nova was Suspended from Empire but that didn't keep Nova away. After a few moments of Cleo Mocking Nova once again, Tarah made her percents known to the GM by catcalling her from the front row. This caused the GM to send, once again, her security guards after Nova but that plan back fired due to Tarah coming in as a paying customer. Furious by being out witted by Nova, Cleo tried to out smart Nova by ripping her ticket up and sending her packing. Once the security guards dragged Tarah Nova off, Cleo made her way to the back but was quickly speared to the by Nova, who slipped away from the guards.

Tarah Nova resides in Newark, New Jersey with her Boyfriend. Due to her childhood life and her up bringing, Tarah is known to be an polytheism; she believes in more than one god.
Another thing she took from her Childhood was the fact that she loves Comicbooks and collects them in her space time. Nova's favorite comicbook characters are Harley Quinn, Batman, Loki and Winter Soldier; which is what she bases some of her ring gear off of. Tarah is also known to be a big Horror movie fan; her favorite Slasher film being 1984's The Nightmare on Elm Street. A side from Comicbooks and Slasher films; Nintendo is Tarah's life. She is known to always have her Nintendo 3DS with her for the road.
In early November 2016, Tarah Nova sparked old flames and began dating her longtime friend, Nasir Moore (who's known in the ring as CM Nas in both SSW & OWA). Together they are parents of two: A son; Bradyn "Brady" Lee Moore (Born Oct. 13th, 2010) and a daughter; Maya Nicole Moore (Born August 29th, 2017). Out side of the ring Nova is also close friends with Heart Break Gal (The god mother to Maya), Keelan Callihan, Kenny Drake, Stephanie Matsuda, Jacob Senn and Finnegan Wakefield. She was also friends with Brody Sparks till her timely passing in late October. As a tribute to Brody Sparks, Nova got a tattoo of the "White Pony" logo on the back of her neck.
