About Him

Overview... a human raised by gorillas. After his human parents were shipwrecked and killed in the African jungle, Tarzan was adopted by a kindhearted gorilla named Kala and her standoffish mate Kerchak. Raised as the only human living among animals, Tarzan is shocked when a group of explorers who look like him—but act quite differently—arrive on his shore. 

Personality... adventurous, brave, stubborn, and independent. As a child, Tarzan climbed high, jumped far, and ran fast in the hopes of impressing his distant father Kerchak. Yet despite his physical prowess, Tarzan’s always felt like an outsider in his jungle life. He spends his days swinging around the jungle, searching for a place where he’ll finally belong.
