Bêlit is impressed by Conan – they quickly become lovers and Conan her second-in-command.

Indexer Notes

Adapted from a portion of the Robert E Howard story "Queen of the Black Coast". The adaptation is concluded in Conan the Barbarian #100.

Technically, the first appearance of Bêlit is in Giant-Size Conan #1, as a small (blonde!) figure in a flashback panel. This is the first full appearance.
