Linea is a young First Born woman who is interestingly the granddaughter of Issus.


Not much is known about her history, but she is the granddaughter of Issus, and the daughter of the High Priest of Issus. When the lands of the First Born were conquered by the forces of Helium, she and a group of other First Born noblewomen were captured by Tars Tarkas and Carthoris.

John Carter ordered the group released, on the basis that he didnt want to force the First Borns surrender by keeping their noblewomen hostage. Before the group could leave she overheard Carthoris and John Carter talking about her father, she then informed them of the Atmosphere Destroyer a device built by the First Born that her father was likely activating.

She led Carthoris and John Carter through the catacombs to the location where the factory could be activated. Her father released two White Apes in an attempt to distract John Carter and Carthoris while he activated the Atmosphere Destroyer, and poisoned himself taking his own life. Linea was distraught by this, despite the fact that her father intended to kill her as well.
