Real Name: Tonto
Search for 'Tonto (Lone Ranger)' on Amazon


Powers:
Tonto is in peak physical condition. He is a highly skilled marksman and horseman. He is also an expert with a bow and arrow. He speaks many Native American languages.

Bio:
Tonto is the last surviving member of a wandering band of Pottawatamie indians. His tribe, in some versions including a sister, is massacred when he is young boy. A white boy named John Reid finds Tonto still alive and cares for him until he heals. Before they part company, Tonto gives Reid a ring, and calls him "Kemosabe," which means "faithful friend" or "trusty scout."

Years later, Tonto is hunting when he comes upon the scene of an ambush in Bryant's Gap, finding five dead Texas Rangers and one barely alive. He recognizes the living Ranger as the boy who helped him long ago, and now cares for him. He buries the other five Rangers, but digs six graves, to make the outlaws believe all six men were killed. When Reid decides to put on a mask and become the Lone Ranger, Tonto vows his loyalty to his friend and joins him in his pursuit of law and order.


Notes:
Created by Fran Striker and George W. Trendle for the Lone Ranger radio series in 1933.
