A human raised to live among apes in the jungles of Africa, Tarzan is extremely strong, fast and flexible. Found when he was just a baby and adopted into the band, he developed quickly to keep up with his new family. His agility and intelligence made him an asset to the group. When he discovered humans on a safari expedition, he was astonded to learn that there existed people like him.
Tarzan is an extremely brave, loyal and honorable character. He cares deeply about his family and friends and was willing to risk his life to save them. He has also been known to be willing to rescue his enemies; an example of this was when Clayton was about to fall to his death and Tarzan exclaimed "Clayton! No!" and reached out to save him, even though Clayton had fatally wounded Kerchak and attempted to kidnap his whole gorilla family.
