In India, soon after the Sepoy Rebellion of the 1860s, a child was born from the Sultan of Kalabar and his wife, Jane, a British baroness. The boy was christened Tarendra (prince of Stars) by his father and Timothy by his mother. His parents were massacred by rebel leader Korassan. The child grew up to become known as Tarendra Tim, Champion of India, a man ever trapped between loyalties to two different people.
Tarendra Tim eventually joins Her Majesty Secret Service and undertakes perilous missions helped by the globetrotting American adventurer Banjo Kid and the loyal army sergeant Scotty.
