Hardant, Francis. Francis Hardant was created by the French author Guy D’Armen (Khyzil Kaya, Mendax (II), Natas) and appeared in “La Cité de l'Or et de la Lèpre” (Science et Voyages #453-479, May-Nov 1928).

Francis Hardant, also known as “Doc Arden,” is a golden-skinned physician, scientist, and explorer. (There is a notable, if likely coincidental, similarity between Hardant and Doc Savage). While crossing a desert in Tibet, in search of a lost city, Hardant comes into conflict with the Yellow Peril Natas.
