- "Yeah. But it's her own fault. She had plenty of chances at Scott."
- —Taryn Fujioka about Jean Grey
Taryn is another of the normal kids that the X-Men know from Bayville High. She starts out as Jean's best friend and they're often seen walking around school together. Soon though, Taryn decides to make a move on Scott and the two start dating.
Taryn is very outgoing and flirtatous. Sometimes she's conceited and narrow-minded but she is also a popular and stylish person.
After the existence of mutants was revealed to the world, however, Taryn quickly became one of those who were prejudiced towards them. Her prejudice was so strong that it caused her to abandon all her previous interest in Scott and her friendship with Jean. Like most of the other Bayville High students, she came to hate and ostracize them for their powers.
Taryn is an attractive, dark-haired girl with brown eyes. She appears to be half Japanese.

He tells him to shut up. Meanwhile, Duncan isn't paying any attention.

Taryn gets a call from Scott early Saturday morning wondering if she has seen or heard from Jean. Taryn says she hasn't, Scott thanks her, and hangs up to continue searching.
- Shadow Dance
Just as Jean is walking towards their table to talk to Scott, Taryn pops out of nowhere and asks Scott to the dance. Jean looks majorly embarrassed and rushes off.
