Tina Blake is presented as a teenage student at Ewen High School in Maine. She is a member of the school's cheerleading team and is best friends with Chris Hargensen. Tina was one of many such students to make sport of the socially awkward Carrie White, tormenting her in the girls' shower at school by hurling tampons at her screaming "Plug it up!" after Carrie has an unexpected and shocking menstrual issue. She is later present during the "Black Prom" event in which the girls play a cruel prank on Carrie by dumping a bucket of pig's blood over head - a prank that yields devastating consequences for all.
