The Maclay family was a conservative family led by their patriarch Mr. Maclay.[1]

History[]

Tara Maclay was born from Mr. and Mrs. Maclay on October 16, 1980,[2] and her mother would die 17 years later.[3] Both Tara and late mother had been witches,[4] which the family disapproved of. Her father deceived Tara saying she was part demon like all the women of the family had been, and her demonic aspect would began to manifest on her 20th birthday.[1]

In October 2000, Tara had moved to Sunnydale, and her father came to return her to their home, accompanied by her brother Donny and her cousin Beth. However, seeing Tara's resistance in going away with the Maclay, the Scooby Gang declared being her family. Spike then proved the Maclay family legend to be false when he hit Tara and it triggered his chip, which would only happen with a human.[1]
