  • Lady Waltham seems mostly original.

    Clayton in the novel had no mentioned siblings and ended up Tarzan's ally.

    Count Nikolas Rokoff, the villain of the Tarzan novels, did have a sister, named Olga, who he planned to overthrow along with her husband. There was a point where Olga and her husband were pinned against Tarzan by Nikolas's trickery, but the truth was discovered.

    Hope that was helpful.

    • No problem.

      You could consider Disney's version of Clayton, as their counterpart of Rokoff.

      Book Clayton was more of a cowardly and snooty romantic rival. He had inherited Tarzan's estate of Greystroke with the disappearance of him and his father, Lord Greystroke Clayton. He was Jane Porter's Fiancee, she was American in the book.

      He finds out about Tarzan's true identity as the missing  heir to Lord Clayton Greystroke, but intially conceals it. However, William Clayton had a good heart, later in the novel, Clayton is lost in the jungle and terminally ill, here Will Clayton reveals Tarzan's identity as John Clayton to Jane and gives the couple his blessing. He is given an honorary burial in the Greystroke estate in England.

      The closest thing to Book Clayton in Disney's Tarzan is Robert Canler, a former paramour of Jane.

      Funny thing is, in the disney version, both are bad and seem similar too.

      I know you said Lady Waltham seems original, but thinking of Olga, doesn't she she seem somewhat based off of Olga too like the leopard men were based off the human versions?
