Khanid Thal was the Jed of Greater Helium 437 years before Carter arrived on barsoom.


He led the Greater city in war against the lesser city, when Yorn took control of both cities Khanid Thal was imprisoned and was eventually freed by Dejah Thoris. The people of the two cities were partially united, but Mors Kajak still blamed Greater Helium for the death of his wife.

When Senneth Dor ambushed the convocation of Jeddaks Khanid Thal actually saved Mors Kajaks life, thus earning his trust and friendship! Mors Kajak and Tardos Mors agreed that Khanid Thal would be Jeddak of helium if neither of them survived, but Khanid Thal refused because he is not capable of producing an heir, between three wives and an endless string of mistress' he failed at every attempt.

Khanid Thal died saving Tardos Mors and Mors Kajak from the treacherous Jeddak of Zodanga during the final assault on the Colossus, he was laid to rest with full military honors.
