Ranquin was the leader of the Swampies on Delta III. They turned to him after their forced exile from Delta Magna. He firmly believed that Kroll was a god, and worshipped him as such. In this respect, he was also the religious leader of the Swampies.


In the swamps

Some humans began refining various elements on Delta III, which they had not known of when the Swampies were transferred there. The workers oppressed the Swampies and forced them into the swamps. Over time, the Swampies came to worship Kroll, which Ranquin proclaimed to be their god.

Against the refinery

On No!

Ranquin being killed by Kroll. (TV: The Power of Kroll)

Ranquin purchased guns from Rohm-Dutt for an attack on the methane refinery. The guns turned out to be duds, as Rohm-Dutt was secretly working for the refinery. Ranquin ordered the sacrifice of Rohm-Dutt, the Fourth Doctor and Romana I to please Kroll. They managed to escape. As the Swampies pursued them, Kroll appeared and attacked the Swampies. This made many Swampies doubt Kroll as their god. Ranquin, however, was firm in his belief, deciding that it was a test of faith.

He led a raid on the refinery and tried to contact Kroll, who was also attacking the installation. A tentacle of Kroll burst through a pipe and Ranquin approached it. Kroll then grabbed Ranquin and killed him. (TV: The Power of Kroll)
