abstract
  • Tars Tarkas was a fierce warrior of the Thark clan of Green Martians on the world of Barsoom. When he was a young warrior, he developed a romantic relationship with a female of his clan named Gozava, and the two of them had a daughter named Sola. Such attachments were forbidden in Thark society, and unlike most members of his race, he has developed a sense of love and sentimentality. Tars Tarkas and his daughter both developed a strong friendship with John Carter, Warlord of Mars when he came to Barsoom, and with his help Tarkas became the Jeddak of the Thark tribe. Under his leadership, the Tharks became allies with the Red Martians in the city state of Helium, and helped them to defeat their enemies in Zodanga. Like other Green Martians, Tars Tarkas stands around 15 feet tall, and has four arms, the lower arms being low enough and long enough to act as a second pair of legs when needed. They also wear no clothing, except metal rings on their arms signifying rank. However, they are often depicted as being only slightly taller than humans, having more proportional arms and being somewhat clothed.
