Character Bio

Leela was the daughter of Sole. She first appears in the 1977 serial The Face of Evil. She is a warrior of the savage Sevateem tribe, who were amongst the descendants of the crew of an Earth starship from the Mordee Expedition that crash-landed on an unnamed planet in the far future. The tribe's name is a corruption of "survey team". The Doctor at this point was content to travel alone, but Leela barged into the TARDIS and continued to accompany him on his journeys.
Though a primitive, Leela was highly intelligent, grasping advanced concepts easily and translating them into terms she could cope with. Despite the Doctor's attempts at "civilizing" her, Leela was strong-willed enough to continue in her ways. She usually dressed in animal skins, and was armed with a knife or a set of poisonous Janis thorns, which she did not hesitate to use on people who threatened her, much to the Doctor's disapproval. She often demonstrated a highly accurate sense of danger.
In her travels with the Doctor, Leela faced killer robots (The Robots of Death), murderous homunculi (The Talons of Weng-Chiang), the Rutan Host (Horror of Fang Rock), and the Sontaran invasion of the Doctor's home planet of Gallifrey. During this final adventure, The Invasion of Time, she meets and falls in love with Andred, a native Gallifreyan, and decides to stay behind to be with him. The first K-9 remains with her.
