Dejah and her Chieftain: Art by Thomas Yeates
Princess Dejah and her Chieftain

Dejah was a name I inherited over 40 years ago when I met a musician-teacher . . . dreamer . . . who tried to convince me that he was a really a warrior from a far-off place called Barsoom . . . . a wanderer who had come to the 20th Century-Canadian prairies on a quest to find his lost soul mate. He recognized me and called me his Princess . . . Dejah Thoris.  Gradually . . . over time . . . memories of my past life filled my consciousness. I believe... I still live!

Her Chieftain's version of that first meeting:

"And the sight which met my eyes was that of a slender, girlish figure, similar in every detail to the earthly women of my past life. She did not see me at first, but just as she was disappearing through the portal of the building which was to be her prison she turned, and her eyes met mine. Her face was oval and beautiful in the extreme, her every feature was finely chiseled and exquisite, her eyes large and lustrous and her head surmounted by a mass of coal black, waving hair, caught loosely into a strange yet becoming coiffure. Her skin was of a light reddish copper color, against which the crimson glow of her cheeks and the ruby of her beautifully molded lips shone with a strangely enhancing effect.

She was as destitute of clothes as the green Martians who accompanied her; indeed, save for her highly wrought ornaments she was entirely naked, nor could any apparel have enhanced the beauty of her perfect and symmetrical figure.

As her gaze rested on me her eyes opened wide in astonishment, and she made a little sign with her free hand; a sign which I did not, of course, understand."
