Tars Tarkas is a Barsoom warrior and second in command of the Tharks' army. Though his race is known for not showing pity or soft emotions, he possesses a sense of kindness and empathy uncharacteristic of his clan. When the Earthling John Carter mysteriously appeared on Barsoom, Tars Tarkas took him into custody so he could be closely observed. Later, Carter would befriend another Thark named Sola. She revealed to Carter that she was Tars Tarkas's daughter. Learning this information, Carter began to sympathize with the warrior. They would soon come to respect one another, and Tars Tarkas became one of John Carter's closest allies.
