(PROSE: The Visual Dictionary [+]Loading...["The Visual Dictionary (reference book)"]) He led an asteroid ship to Earth in 2006 and tried to invade the planet using blood control.

Biography[[edit]]

The Sycorax Leader spent the first two and a half centuries of his life to become the leader of the Halvinor tribe, rising through the ranks through trials of strength and combat. (PROSE: The Visual Dictionary [+]Loading...{"page":"82","ed":"2010 reprint","1":"The Visual Dictionary (reference book)"}) He would marry Haxan Craw, and, as a symbol of his marriage bond, wore one of Haxan's ribs. (COMIC: The Widow's Curse)

In late 2006, he led the tribe into Earth's airspace above London after his ship picked up Guinevere One over the surface of Mars, using the A+ blood onboard the probe to hold the planet to ransom by blood controlling all A- positive humans. He brought Harriet Jones aboard when she declared herself leader of Earth, along with her aide, Alex, Daniel Llewellyn and UNIT Major Blake. When Llewellyn attempted to plead mercy from the Sycorax, the Fadros Pallujikaa murdered both him and Major Blake with his death whip. He saw through Rose Tyler's subterfuge when she claimed to have the authority to order the invaders to depart.

He duelled with the Tenth Doctor and cut off his hand which the Doctor was able to regrow using residual energy from his recent regeneration - allowing the Doctor to defeat him. When the Doctor's back was turned, the leader tried to kill him again, but the Doctor used a satsuma from his borrowed dressing gown to hit a button which collapsed the ground the leader was standing on and he plummeted thousands of feet to his death (TV: The Christmas Invasion) when he hit the ground at Westminster Abbey. (COMIC: The Widow's Curse)

Legacy[[edit]]

The Doctor soon wrote about his defeat of the Sycorax with a satsuma in his diary, accompanied by a picture of the Sycorax leader. (PROSE: First Day of the Doctor [+]Loading...{"page":"30","1":"First Day of the Doctor (short story)"})

The Great Intelligence mentioned, among others, the death of "the leader of the Sycorax" at the hands of the Doctor to dispute Madame Vastra's claim that the Doctor was never "blood-soaked". (TV: The Name of the Doctor)
