La  -- Queen of Opar.  #5 Tarzan believes her to be dead (not seen).
In #13.1 she is living with the Dwarfs of Opar just outside of Opar.  She is about to sacrifice Hogarth’s horse to the sun god when Tarzan and Hogarth arrive on the scene.  She helps them escape.
#15.1 La is saved from the Dwarfs of Opar by Tarzan.  Tarzan and Tantor take her to Pal-ul-don where Aroc, a cave man, captures her.  Tarzan rescues her from Bundroc, the chief cave man, and sets her up as the ruler of the cave people.
#38.2 (Back in Opar) Queen of the dwarfs of Opar, she is about to sacrifice Jean Carveth on the altar of the Flaming God when Tarzan, King Nikon, and his men intervene.  She expresses her love for Tarzan.  She allows Tarzan to take Jean away.
#59.3 La has captured Jane and Queen Ellenya.  She sends a message to Tarzan that they will be sacrificed unless Tarzan surrenders himself to her.  La reclines on a royal couch in the elaborate temple of the moon goddess, Astar.  La is about to sacrifice Jane on the altar with a sacrificial knife.  Tarzan drops through the temple’s sky opening and disarms her.  She commands her crooked men to kill Tarzan.  Tarzan rescues the women.  La is regal looking with long black hair.  She wears a golden laurel wreath and white robes with a symbol on the chest.
#82.1 La is at the Temple of the Moon when Tarzan comes to warn her that gangsters have come the steal the jewels of Opar.  As the robbers approach the temple, an earthquake starts to rumble.  Tarzan carries La into a tree.  The branch cannot hold their weight - it snaps.  Tarzan falls to the ground unconscious.  The gangsters capture them.  The leader threatens to kill Tarzan if she does not take them to the jewels.  She leads them to the secret vault.  The jewels distract them.  Tarzan overpowers them.  Another quake starts to bring down the cliff of the mountain.  Tarzan carries La to safety.  La asks Tarzan to stay and rule Opar with her.  He refuses.  La commands her crooked men to kill the Jungle Lord.  Tarzan calls to the White Pygmies who ride in and rout the crooked men.  La wears a long red skirt with a matching halter-top.  Her red hat has gold decorations around the edge that carries down the sides.  The large gold earrings could possibly be part of the hat.  She has a large gold necklace and gold armbands.

#130.1 The Oparians blame La for the earthquake that has split the rock of Opar and the geyser that is filling the valley with sulfur smelling water.  They chain her to the altar in the temple of the Moon to appease the earth gods.  La bemoans not being able to see the face of the moon goddess.  Tarzan rescues her.  He places La on Jad-bal-ja’s back and has her ride to the Oparians who are duly impressed by her control of the lion.  They would follow her once more.  When the geyser erupts again, they turn on their queen and plan to throw her into the lake as a sacrifice.  Tarzan once again comes to her aid.  Tarzan is knocked unconscious by a rock.  Jad keeps the Oparians busy fighting until Tarzan regains consciousness.  La leads her people up the mountain.  Again the Oparians turn their backs on her because the way up the rock is too steep.  An avalanche blocks their way down into the valley.  Tarzan climbs the sheer face of the rock and pulls Jad-bal-ja and La up to the top by a vine rope sling.  The Oparians climb the rock.  The Oparians are happy with the orchards left behind by the White Pygmies, who deserted the rock because of the earthquake and geyser.  La and Tarzan investigate the Temple of the Moon. Another quake destroys the ancient buildings of Opar.  The Oparians beg La to save them.  La declares their ancient ways of violence to be over.  La is a young dark haired beauty with a cresset moon in her hair.
