Biography[edit | edit source]
Tamika makes it her business to keep the other students in line, giving her the title of "Toughest Girl in School". She is also very stubborn and mean; the slightest misstep is grounds for a threatening fist. "Prove It or Move It" is her trademark phrase, but she is not sure what to do if someone chooses "Prove It." Despite her sharp tongue and threatening disposition, and the fact that she often bullies her classmates, Tamika genuinely cares about them and will readily defend them if they're in any kind of danger. Eddie is madly in love with her, And she is often seen with him. She usually plays stringed instruments, and her signature instrument is the harp. When she has to walk during a song, she has an acoustic guitar, along with the electric guitar. In the song "Throwdown", she also says she plays the guitar. She didn't mention her harp. But, in the episode "Tamika and the Beast" she shows a soft and sensitive side. She is usually disgusted by Eddie's attempts for her affection, although she showed feelings to him in the show's Christmas special after he paid Santa Claus to visit her. She is 12 years old and is also known for her singing ability.
