* InTheBlood: Tars Tarkas is her father, and it's no coincidence they're the two nicest Tharks. "The blood of my father drives me" indeed. Her MissingMom is implied to have been in the same vein.

** Which is just silly; Barsoom and Mars both have the same surface gravity (0.38 of Earth's surface gravity, so John Carter would only be able to lift a bit over 2.5 times more than what he is capable of on Earth.

* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: He seems a bit wayward at first, and even when he first shows up on Mars, the only real thing he wants to do is go back home. Then he starts getting attached to the Tharks as well as Dejah...

* EmotionEater: At one point he explains that he (and by extension all Therns) feed off of the negative emotions of other life forms. Thus making the Therns a kind of PsychicVampire race.
