"WE STILL LIVE!" ...John Carter

BARSOOMIAN CHARACTERS


PEOPLE


A Barsoom Glossary

Listing of Named Characters in the Barsoom stories by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

Most named characters have short appearances, unlike the major protagonists like John Carter, Carthoris, Thuvia, Vad Varo, Tan Hadron, yet each have a purpose and, in some cases, a pivitol impact in each of the adventures.

Converted from Bozarth's 1985 research database. Not all records are complete. Where information on minor characters was either unavailable or passed over n/r (not recorded) is entered. Some MAJOR characters are without entries, in which case see Burroughs' glossary at the end of Thuvia, Maid of Mars.

Book references listed below in italic at the end of each description are the FIRST APPEARANCE of the character.
