Djor Kantos is a male Red Martian and the son of Kantos Kan. He was the padwar of the fifth utan of Helium and the intended husband of Tara of Helium by the will of both their fathers.



The Chessmen of Mars[]

Djor Kantos no more objection to the arrangement than his fiancee, Tara, but found himself attracted to Olvia Marthis.  When Tara was given up for dead after disappearing into the Great Storm, he married Olvia who was the daughter of the Jed of Hastor. When he discovered Tara was alive after all he felt guilty and dishonorable. Happily she had fallen in love with her faithful panthan Turhan (in reality Gahan of Gathol) and was delighted to be freed from their engagement.

When Dejah Thoris was captured by the First Born, Djor Kantos took part in the rescue operation carried out by John Carter and the navy of Helium.
