Dejah Thoris is the princess of Helium and the wife of John Carter.

HistoryEdit

Family & RelationshipsEdit

Dejah Thoris is the daughter of Mors Kajak, the Jed of Lesser Helium, and granddaughter of Tardos Mors, the empires Jeddak. She has two children, Carthoris and Tara, by her husband, John Carter, and a granddaughter, Llana, by Tara and Gahan of Gathol.

AppearenceEdit

Her face was oval and beautiful in the extreme, her every feature finely chisled and exquisite, her eyes large and lustrous and her head surmouned by a mass of coal black, waving hair, caught loosely into a strange yet becoming coiffure. Her skin was of a light reddish copper color, against which the crimson glow of her cheeks and the ruby of her beautifuly molded lips shone with a strangely enhancing effect. -- John Carter's first impression of his future wife.

PersonalityEdit

While no fighter, Dejah Thoris is no mere damsel in distress. She speaks eloquently and bravely for herself before the Tharks, is ready to sacrifice herself to save her city, and on at least one occasion saves John Carter's life. As she is leading a scientific expedition when she falls into A Princess of Mars, it is safe to assume her royal duties extend further than looking beautiful and being kidnapped.

She demostrates her chops as an understanding wife by taking the assorted damsels who fall for John Carter under her wing and interesting them in the other fish in the sea. As Helium is an absolute magnet for adventurous young Red men it is the perfect place to hunt a husband.
