Dejah Thoris is the Princess of Helium, and the wife of John Carter and mother to Carthoris and Dejah Carter. She is also a formidable fighter, and has a great sense of adventure and persistence, often striving to do what she has been advised not to do, and to do what many say could not be done. Her adventurism and persistence have led her on the path to many artefacts and discoveries, sometimes getting her into trouble. When added to the fact that she is Princess of Helium, she had been kidnapped or held hostage many times, often with her husband rescuing her, although she is able to take care of herself as well.
One of her adventures lead her to the discovery of a plot to destroy two of Barsoom's major cities, which meant she had to disguise herself as a slave to find out more information. She had some help from a few Green Martians, may disable a weapon and save both Helium and Thark from it's potential destruction from a group of Green Martians who were planning on using it to wipe out both cities.
Years later, she was accused of committing fraud and betrayal by Valoris, and was to be tried, and if found guilty, she was to be put to death. This is due to her father, Mors Kajak, the King of Helium was missing, and they had accused Dejah of being involved with the disappearance and/or murder (despite no body or evidence of his death being found). She was therefore arrested, and while in the prison cell, an assassin sent by Valoris had attempted to kill her, but she was able to overpower him and kicked him across the face, rendering him unconscious. Thana, Dejah's servant, had arrived to help her escape moments later, and the two went to see Orion, who helped Dejah escape Helium. After escaping Helium, she began using the name Larka.
