Thongor was a barbarian warrior of Lemuria, living almost half a million years ago, when Lemuria was the only continent inhabited by modern man, while the rest of the world apparently lived in the Pleistocene period.[8]


Black Hawk Tribe

Thongor was the son of the kingly Thumithar and of an (unnamed) mother, and was part of the Black Hawk Tribe.

Religion

Thongor often invoked the name of Father Gorm/Gorm the Father of Stars,[7][3][9][6] but also the Seven Gods of Zangabal[9][6] and the Nineteen Gods on occasion.[9][6]





Weapons

Sarkozan, the sword of his fathers.[9]

  • Thongor was created by Lin Carter in "The Wizard of Lemuria" (1965), and was inspired and similar in many ways to Conan the Barbarian:
    • Both have their origin battle set at fifteen years old.[7]
    • They are both barbarian who have practiced many occupations, including thief and pirate.[7]
    • They both distrust wizards and priests.[7]
    • Thongor frequently invoked the name of a deity, Gorm, which is close to Conan's patron deity Crom. Thongor even once invoke Crom in Creatures on the Loose #26, presumably an error from the authors.
