Sumba  -- Sumba is the name of the chief of the Kasana, a cliff dwelling tribe that live in the cliff alongside of Lake Sana.  The Banga tribe who keep them from hunting meat and stole their canoe plagues them.  Boy and Dombie bring them a canoe and a seine net.  Sumba is delighted with the gifts but thinks the net is too big to cast.  Boy shows the Kasana how to properly deploy the net.  A storm forces them from the lake.  The Bangas attack.  They take a higher position and battle the Bangas.  A lightning strike makes the Bangas leave.  After the storm they retrieve the net so full of fish that they have to pull the net to shore to empty it.  The Kasana are grateful for the gifts.

Suleiman  -- the Strong.  He is the Arab henchman of the deserter, Leveque.  Together they capture Professor Plume and force him to draw a map to the treasure of Isis.  When Tarzan comes to the rescue, they fight and tumble down a flight of steps.  Tarzan ties him up.  He and the Frenchman trail Tarzan and the Professor to Pal-ul-don where the strongman kills a saber-toothed tiger with his bare hands.  At the Lost City Suleiman throws a boulder down on Tantor knocking him out.  In the treasure cave he and Tarzan fight.  Tarzan is winning until Leveque knocks Tarzan unconscious from behind.  Carrying as much gold as they can, they are again confronted by Tarzan.  Leveque’s rifle shot causes a rockslide, which kills both he and the Arab.
