Edith Alton would accompany a group of fellow explorers into the African jungle. When her fellows would abuse their native guides they would be attacked by the jungle man known as Trojak, allowing the guides to retreat. The group would soon become lost in the woods and Edith would become disturbed by her colleagues willingness to kill anything in their path and would try to find her way out of the jungle alone.

She would be attacked by a lion, to be saved by Trojak who was injured in the fight. Nursing him to health, she would teach him English and he would lead her and her fellows to a nearby village. This would be a village of savages who would attempt to kill Edith and her colleagues until they were once again rescued by Trojak. The jungle man would lead the group back to civilization and Edith would soon be on a boat home, wondering if she would ever see Trojak again[1].

Her reunion with Trojak would come sooner than she would think as her boat would be attacked by a Nazi U-Boat. She would be taken back to the African continent and kept as a prisoner. Upon learning of her capture, Trojak would rescue her and vow to force the Nazi's out of his jungle[2].

Edith would stop Trojak from launching an attack with his tribes people after learning that her brother Jerry was among their numbers. She and Trojak would soon be recaptured an imprisoned with Jerry -- whom they would learn was really a spy working for the Allied Forces. Thanks to Trojak's pet tiger Balu setting off explosives set by Jerry, Edith and her friends would be freed and the Nazi's slain[3].

Jerry would soon become sick and Edith would insist on accompanying Trojak in collecting the nectar of the Devil-Flower that would cure him. This would put them into conflict with the Gemba Tribe who worshiped the flower. Edith would hold her own against various perils thrown at them by the Gemba people until they successfully collected the nectar and cured Jerry[4].
