Sojarr. Sojarr was created by Manly Wade Wellman (Hok, Sgt. Jaeger, Patch Merrick, Judge Keith Hilary Pursuivant, Jack Stillwell) and appeared in “Sojarr of Titan” (Startling Stories, Mar. 1941).
Sojarr is a Jungle Hero. A millennium in the future humans have colonized all of the planets in the solar system out to Jupiter. Pitt Rapidan is inspired by a challenge to be the first person to go to Saturn. With a lot of prize money at stake, Pitt, his wife, and his three-year-old son Stuart risk the trip, but they end up crashing on Titan, Saturn’s moon. Stuart is the only survivor, and he misunderstands his father's dying words to "be a good soldier" and names himself "Sojarr." He grows up in the jungles of Titan, becoming a Tarzan-like figure. In his teens he joins up with a group of humanoid natives and becomes the greatest warrior of the group, fighting against the four-armed ape-like Truags.
Twenty years later another expedition arrives, and after various misunderstandings and battles the group settles on Titan and Sojarr takes up with Ursula, the beautiful niece of his biological father's rival.
