In the 1940's, Princess Tonka's father King Bolo was the ruler of the Birdmen who lived on the planet Sunev. When Earth explorers Zephyr Jones and Corky Grogan arrived from Earth, it fulfilled the legends that the closely related planets would interact with each other. Zephyr and his comrade were welcomed with open arms by King Bolo, and they exchanged information and technology. During this time, Princess Tonka and Zephyr fell in love with each other.
However, the jealous General Roudo, a spy for the evil Parrot-Men, framed Zephyr and Corky as spying on the Birdmen. With no evidence to the contrary, King Bolo sentenced Zephyr and Corky to be executed the following day. However, the Parrot-Men attacked before their sentence could be carried out. Princess Tonka helped Zephyr and Corky escape from their cell by bringing them their guns, and they fought back the invading Parrot-Men and revealed Roudo as the traitor. Following Roudo's execution for his crimes, Zephyr and Corky returned to Earth, but not before Princess Tonka saw Zephyr off with a goodbye kiss.
Powers and Abilities
Princess Tonka was an avian humanoid who could fly thanks to the wings that grow out of her back. Presumably he has physical adaptions that are commonly associated with avian humanoids including hollow bones and specially treated eyes to provide wind resistance.
