Most of Tikal's past remains hidden, specially information about her family. Her mother died while she was young, leaving her care in the arms of her grandmother.

Her father is the ruler of the tribe. While Tikal loves her father, she does not appreciate him trying to control the power of the Chaos Emeralds. One day, her father led a group of men to steal the Master Emerald. Tikal attempted to stop them with all her might, but the force of the group was too strong, and they knocked her over, along with the Chao that watched over the place. The Chao guardians, after seeing the destruction brought on by these men, killed them all.
