(Lorna, the Jungle Girl#11/2 (fb) - BTS) - Growing up in a tribe in the Congo, Chiga was considered a great hunter, and he had training as a witch doctor, but in time he became elderly and nearly toothless. Wanting to be considered great again, Chiga taught himself ancient magic words that would allow him to control typhoons. He then made plans to remove every warrior and dangerous animal in the region, relocating them far away to the unexplored Gray Marsh, so that he could be the only man left on his tribe.
(Lorna, the Jungle Girl#11/2) - Typhoons pulled away many warriors, including Muga, and massive creatures that Chiga considered threats, including Numa the lion, but Lorna the Jungle Girl (with Mikki the monkey) managed to escape the typhoon that targeted her. After the husband of Igana disappeared, Lorna and Greg Knight investigated, and Chiga removed Greg with another typhoon. Pretending to be distressed, Chiga approached Lorna, saying he was now the only one left to provide for his tribe, and she said it was now his responsibility to feed all of the women and children. Chiga then revealed his duplicity, hitting Lorna and Mikki with a typhoon that sent them away. Chiga soon rode a whirlwind to check on his victims and he was shocked to see Lorna still alive. Now believing Lorna was the most powerful thing in the jungle, Chiga was humbled and followed her orders to send everyone back in the whirlwinds.
