Dara is a light green Eastern wood rat with brown eyes and a pink nose who belongs to Tiana. She wears a light green lilypad tiara that resembles Tiana's, a lilac necklace with a pink waterlily flower attached and a yellow bow on her tail.
As Tiana let the wind blow through her hair, an Eastern wood rat tumbled by, unable to move in the strong wind. Tiana gently caught the rat and took it for Dragonfly Festival at the bayou. "What a wonderful way to spend a windy day!" laughed Tiana to the wood rat as they watched the dragonflies hovering around in the bayou.
