(Ka-Zar the Savage I#5 (fb)) - Lodah was a member of Tongah's tribe of Fall People, dwelling in his village. He apparently had a wife and two children, the older of whom was a daughter, while the younger was a toddler (at the time of the story) and not clearly identified as male or female.
(Ka-Zar the Savage I#5 (fb)) - After Kapah was slain by a saber-toothed tiger and Tongah brought Ka-Zar to the village to help investigate. As they approached the village, Lodah, standing by his presumed wife and children as they worked in a field, waved to Ka-Zar and Tongah.
