The Bane Mother was concealed in the ceiling of the Bubble Shock! factory, from where she provided the ingredients for Bubble Shock!. The Mother seemed to have powerful psychic ability, able to control any human that had consumed the Bane ingredient in Bubble Shock. Her tentacles also proved a weapon against those she wished to harm, as evidenced when she attacked Maria Jackson and Sarah Jane Smith. (TV: Invasion of the Bane)
It is assumed that Mrs Wormwood and the other Bubble Shock! workers were her children.
Those who failed her were consumed by the mother (such as in the case of Davey). She was very sensitive to mobile phone signals and was pained by them, as evidenced by the phones of Kelsey Hooper and Maria. The Mother was destroyed by Luke Smith when he used a superluminal phone given to Sarah by the Star Poet. (TV: Invasion of the Bane)
- It is not known whether the Kindred are also children of this Bane Mother or whether there is more than one Bane Mother.
