Behind The Scenes

John Carter is an American Civil War veteran. On Earth, he was mostly known as Captain Jack Carter of Virginia, and later after his arrival on Barsoom, he was given the name Dotar Sojat by Tars Tarkas (roughly translating into "my right arms"). Now, he is a prince of Helium . John Carter appears to be about thirty, but he suspects he is much older than that.


John Carter fought in the Civil War, and when he returned home he found his wife and child had died. John Carter secluded himself and headed west to search for gold so he could live a quiet solitary life.

John Carter stumbled across a cave with mysterious carvings in the walls and within this cave he found a strange device which transported him to Mars. There he was captured by the Tharks.
