Background

Ava Moore was originally Avery Tanner, a gay man who worked as a professional escort to wealthy older women. Avery was in love with a doctor named Dr. Barrett Moore and used his charisma to convince his wealthy female dates to finance Dr. Moore's medical research. For other articles with similar names, see Gay (disambiguation). ... The examples and perspective in this article or section may not represent a worldwide view. ... In the fictional world of Nip/Tuck, Dr. Barrett Moore (Played by Alec Baldwin), is a plastic surgeon who is famous for his transgender surgeries. ...


However, to Avery's growing disappointment, Barrett Moore was a confirmed heterosexual and refused to advance his friendship with Avery to the level of a romantic relationship. Avery fell into depression and, determined to have Moore's love at any cost, asked the doctor to perform sex reassignment surgery on him. Intrigued, Moore agreed and personally undertook the mission of transforming Avery into Ava. Moore's skill as a surgeon allowed him to turn Avery into what Christian Troy would later describe as "The Hope Diamond of Transsexuals; completely flawless in every way." Ava was happy with her new form and the two married. But problems quickly popped up, as Moore could never truly accept Ava as being a woman and instead treated her like his prized creation. Ava sank further and further into depression. Moore arranged for one of his female employees to become pregnant with his child so Ava could become a mother and hopefully pull the three together as a family. Heterosexuality is a sexual orientation characterized by esthetic attraction, romantic love or sexual desire exclusively for members of the opposite sex or gender, contrasted with homosexuality and distinguished from bisexuality and asexuality. ...

Ava grew angrier with her husband and ultimately took their child and left in the middle of the night. Sadly, she left right before the final surgery was to be performed to make her vagina deep enough to pass as biologically natural. She then began taking young lovers, since Ava believed that younger, sexually inexperienced boys would not be able to tell that her genitals were different from those of most women. The vagina, (from Latin, literally sheath or scabbard ) is the tubular tract leading from the uterus to the exterior of the body in female placental mammals and marsupials, or to the cloaca in female birds, monotremes, and some reptiles. ...


Season 2

Ava Moore was introduced at the beginning of season two as a life coach who is hired by plastic surgeon Sean McNamara to "motivate" his emotionally distant wife Julia into becoming a better wife to him. Unfortunately, Sean's attraction to Ava blinds him to who she truly is: a sexual predator who targets and exploits the emotionally weak in order to manipulate them for her own amusement. Upon meeting Julia, she finds that Julia's distance comes from her attraction to Sean's best friend and business partner Christian Troy as well as the recent revelation that Christian is the father of her first-born son, Matt. From there, Ava moves onto Matt and seduces the teenager into a sexual relationship. The relationship is met with scorn from Ava's own teenage son, Adrian. It is ultimately revealed that Ava's sexual predation extends to her own son, who is jealous of the attention his mom gives to Matt. Life coaching is used by a growing number of psychologists to aid clients with transitions in their personal life, and in the process of self-actualization. ...

When Matt's relationship with Ava is exposed, Ava uses the truth about Matt's paternity to try and silence Julia, but the truth ultimately comes out. Matt moves in with Ava and continues to act out on his anger at his parents. His delinquency is also influenced by his friendship with Adrian, who was molded long ago into a sociopath by his mother's abuse. When Matt tries to expose Ava, she reveals that she is not Adrian's biological mother; she told Matt that she and her "son" had a prior conversation about the abuse ending in sex (with Ava clearly guilty about the incest and Adrian begging for his "mother" to "make love to him.") The shock of these revelations causes Adrian to run away, and Ava becomes more and more depressed and withdrawn from Matt. Antisocial personality disorder (APD) is a personality disorder which is often characterised by antisocial and impulsive behaviour. ... This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


At the end of the second season, Ava has a confrontation with Christian Troy over her relationship with Matt. During the confrontation, Ava began taunting Christian sexually, to the extent that Christian snapped and began to have forceful sex with Ava. During the intercourse, the sexually experienced Christian made a shocking discovery; Ava had an extremely shallow vaginal canal and had to be a transsexual. Researching Ava's history to confirm the revelation, Christian and Sean discovered her past by speaking to Barrett Moore. The vagina, (from Latin, literally sheath or scabbard ) is the tubular tract leading from the uterus to the exterior of the body in female placental mammals and marsupials, or to the cloaca in female birds, monotremes, and some reptiles. ... A transsexual (sometimes transexual) person establishes a permanent identity with the opposite gender to their assigned (usually at birth) sex. ...


Confronted with the truth, Ava expected her enemies to expose the truth about her and destroy her life. The three were sympathetic towards her, however, and together struck a deal where they would help arrange for Moore to complete the final surgery on Ava's genitals in exchange for Ava breaking off her relationship with Matt, as they feared his reaction.


The surgery was successful, and Ava broke up with Matt. At first Ava tried to be cruel in order to create a clean break, but Matt refused to back down. Ava then explained to Matt that she couldn't stay with him because their relationship had awakened personal demons that she had to face on her own.


Hours later, as Ava prepared to leave the country, Adrian confronted his mother with a butcher's knife. After an intense exchange, Adrian turned the knife on himself and committed suicide. Ava left her adopted son's body to rot as she boarded a plane to Paris. Suicide (from Latin sui caedere, to kill oneself) is the act of willfully ending ones own life. ...

Season 3

As of the end of the fourth season, Ava Moore remained in France and has yet to return to the United States. The character did, however, make a brief appearance in season three, through use of deleted scenes of Ava and Matt making love (which were edited to appear as as a dream sequence) and a hastily filmed scene where Matt, having learned the truth, imagines Ava appearing before him, cursing him for hating her, and demanding that he come to terms with the fact that he still loves her even if she was born a man.
