Tracy Miller grew up riding horses in her adopted state of Colorado, but another animal would become the creative focus of her bold and colorful expressionistic paintings. The artist was very close to her father, a hunter and outdoorsman, and vividly recalls one day when she was just a young teen that he hunted a buffalo and brought the fallen animal home to feed their family. Cooking the buffalo meat in their kitchen, he asked his daughter if she wanted to taste the heart. This was a special day for the young girl. She started to reflect on how important the bison was in the settling of the West, providing food and clothing for centuries of indigenous peoples and settlers across the country.
In the film, Tracy appears as a sensitive, hot-tempered, rough and rude teenager, who doesn't exactly believe in Freddy Krueger at first, but later helps Maggie Burroughs in defeating him after she suffered from Freddy's nightmares by herself. She is also one of the few Nightmare heroines that defeated Freddy Krueger successfully and stayed alive. Tracy is first seen as a troubled teenager with serious emotional problems and having a temper, this was due to her father's sexual abuse when she was younger. She initially just wanted to break out of the shelter with her friends Spencer and Carlos so they didn't have to conform to the therapy at the shelter. Through the course of the movie Tracy has shown signs of sadness, anger, arrogance and other emotions from her battles with Freddy Krueger. John's arrival into the shelter gave them a lucky chance to escape as Maggie and him used the van to travel to Springwood. The three of them secretly smuggled aboard the van and were waiting for a chance to escape and live freely someplace, but this didn't happened as Maggie discovered them hiding after John almost crashed the van from a hallucination.
