Character Sheet: The Rani
“They’re so easy to control only because of what they believe. The rho waves work better on these humans than I’ve ever seen before, with any species. It’s absolutely fascinating, from a scientific perspective. My scientific genius, backed by elite cohorts of Roman legionnaires who will bend to my every bidding… Maybe I will build my new empire here, but more likely I will find another world, one far from your meddling interruptions, Doctor.”
The Doctor isn’t the only renegade Time Lord roaming time and space in a stolen TARDIS. While he may have the Master under lock and key, there are equally dangerous adversaries at large. The Rani is certainly among the most brilliant of the Doctor’s many enemies. A scientific genius prone to obsession and unrestrained by any notion of ethics or morality, her calculated interventions into the evolution of the Earth and other planets could have catastrophic consequences for all life. In attributes, her ingenuity is unsurpassed. Her skills in knowledge, science, and medicine are formidable. During a confrontation with the Doctor in Roman Britain, the regenerated Rani reinforced the threat posed by her reckless intellect—and revealed that she knows more about his role in an unfolding cosmic conspiracy than he does!
