Ramón Salamander (usually referred to as "Salamander") was a man who plotted to take over the Earth.
Criminal career Edit
Salamander came from Merida in the Yucatan in Mexico. Both a respected politician and a scientist, Salamander received worldwide acclaim for his invention of Sun Store technology which beamed sunlight from Earth orbit in order to help the growth of crops and alleviate global hunger on an overpopulated planet. Secretly, however, he also committed murders of officials in order to ensure his goal of world domination so he could replace them with other officials that Salamander could trust. He kidnapped a team of scientists and tricked them into working for him, he created "natural" disasters such as volcanos and earthquakes that would happen at will.
From his palace in the Central European Zone, Salamander attempted the domination of the planet Earth. (During this time, instead of nations, the planet had divided itself into a number of Zones.) Salamander bore an almost exact resemblance to the Second Doctor, enabling the Doctor to impersonate him so as to ensure his downfall.
After he invaded the Doctor's TARDIS disguised as the Doctor, the real Doctor expelled him through its open doors into the Time Vortex. (TV: The Enemy of the World) The Doctor stated it would be very unpleasant for him floating around in time and space. (TV: The Web of Fear)
In the Vortex Edit
Nevertheless, Salamander still survived, helpless in the Vortex. (PROSE: Christmas on a Rational Planet), but eventually became a member of the gestalt intelligence based in the Vortex known as The Horror. (PROSE: Dead Romance)
