Erimemushinteperem, or Erimem for short, was a princess from ancient Egypt who, after travelling in the TARDIS with the Fifth Doctor and Peri Brown, became the Queen of Peladon by marrying King Pelleas.
Biography EditErimem was born in 1419 BC to Pharaoh Amenhotep II of Egypt. Her mother was Rubak, one of his sixty concubines. (AUDIO: The Eye of the Scorpion) Her father, who was predeceased by her three elder brothers, died when she was seventeen. She was groomed as the next Pharaoh. She was raised in near isolation, treated more like a god than a person. (AUDIO: No Place Like Home)
There was controversy about the throne passing to a woman. It was in the midst of this intrigue that the Fifth Doctor and Peri Brown arrived in Thebes in circa 1400 BC. The Doctor knew that historical records showed Amenhotep was succeeded by Thutmose IV. He feared Erimem would die in a revolution to prevent her becoming Pharaoh. However, Erimem survived. Realising she was not destined to rule Egypt, she decided to leave for Greece to study. The Doctor offered her a chance to learn far further afield. (AUDIO: The Eye of the Scorpion) She later regretted not having said goodbye to her mother before leaving. (AUDIO: No Place Like Home)
At some point in her travels, she and Peri visited Prelax, where they went to a costume party against the Doctor's wishes.
The Doctor decided to give Erimem a tour of his TARDIS. At this time, the |a mutated rovie decided to take control of the TARDIS and tried to get them lost or killed. When the Doctor and Erimem finally found the Rovie, they did not take him seriously because he was a rodent. They provoked him with mouse-based insults, which caused him to leave his protective force field. Erimem smashed Rovie's machine and set Antranak on him. (AUDIO: No Place Like Home)
Throughout her travels with the Doctor and Peri, Erimen sought out causes and crusades to throw herself into. For instance, she applied herself with Arius at the Council of Nicaea in 325. (AUDIO: The Council of Nicaea)
She tried to help rule with Prince Vlad III (also known as Vlad Tepes and Vlad the Impaler) in Upper-Wallachia in 1462, staying with him throughout much of his later campaign and being engaged to him. (AUDIO: Son of the Dragon)
It was the Doctor who got to see many of her desires first hand in an induced fantasy world created by the plants of YT45. In this fantasy, she was the ruler of 'New Cairo', an amalgam of many of the worlds she had visited with the Doctor and her original home in Egypt. (AUDIO: The Mind's Eye)
After encountering Sekhmet, one of the last Osirians, on Peladon in the 41st century, she accepted a marriage proposal from Pelleas, the newly crowned King of Peladon. She parted from the Doctor and Peri, saying that it had always been her destiny to rule. (AUDIO: The Bride of Peladon)
Erimem was very much the leader, leading Crown and Church forces against the English in France in 1626. (AUDIO: The Church and the Crown) She seemed to truly desire to rule or be close to a ruler over a group of people. (AUDIO: Son of the Dragon)
