Tatum is an American DigiDestined partnered to Airdramon. When a ShogunGekomon is resting at Niagara Falls, and the American Army is on stand-by and ready to attack in case the Digimon proves to be hostile, Tatum and Airdramon approach the ShoGunGekomon, and are seen by the commanding officer. The commanding officer, seeing Tatum on Airdramon, thinks it's his imagination. Tatum and Airdramon convince the ShogunGekomon to follow them to Central Park in New York City. After Davis, Mimi and the other American Digidestined defeat a confused Cherrymon near Rockefeller Center, she meets up with them on the way to Central Park. After Davis sends all the Digimon back to the Digital World, she cheers for a job well done with the other American Digidestined. When Mimi's parents, Keisuke and Satoe Tachikawa, arrive and ask about the Digimon, she and the others pretend not to know what they're talking about.
Later, on New Year's Eve, she goes to the Digital World to battle MaloMyotismon.
Airdramon is Tatum's Partner Digimon. Shortly after the Christmas of 2002, wild Digimon appeared all over the world. Airdramon and his partner Tatum helped escort the escaped Digimon around America to a rendezvous point in New York City so that they could be returned to the Digital World. Airdramon later makes an appearance during the final battle aginst MaloMyotismon, and lends his energy to the DigiDestined to defeat the demon lord Digimon.
