Biography Edit

Runcible studied at the Time Lord Academy at the same time as the First Doctor and his friends. He was hall monitor in the Academy dormitory, whose job it was to make sure students stayed in their rooms after dark. He clashed with the Deca on numerous occassions, taking a dislike to all its members. Runcible shouted at the Doctor and Badger as they argued in the halls of the Academy after dark. As Runcible followed them up some stairs, Badger pushed him, causing him to fall to the bottom. (PROSE: Divided Loyalties) Both had been pupils of Borusa, but Runcible could not recall the exact circumstances surrounding the Doctor's departure from Gallifrey.

Runcible tried to interview Borusa about Presidential Resignation Day, but the Cardinal insulted Runcible, telling him that he should have asked him questions at the Academy.

Runcible was asked to fetch the recordings of the Lord President's assassination. When he went to get them, he was stabbed in the back by either Goth or the Master. (TV: The Deadly Assassin)

PersonalityEdit

Runcible's pompous personality had earned him the sobriquet of "Runcible the Fatuous". (TV: The Deadly Assassin) He was anti-retentive, and had a habit of making lists. (PROSE: Divided Loyalties)

Behind the scenes Edit

Runcible is a nonsense word coined by Edward Lear. It appears in his poem "The Owl and the Pussycat", among other places.
