Kala and Kerchak's child was killed by Sabor. Kala later found Tarzan as a baby in a treehouse and saved him from Sabor. Kerchak accepted Tarzan into the family, but not as his son. Kala raises Tarzan into a troublesome young boy and into a man.

Kala stays by Kerchak after he is wounded by Clayton and dies, Tarzan becoming the new leader. Kala accepts Jane and her father into the family.
