Scintilla became a figure of Gallifreyan legend, appearing in books such as the children's history Our Planet Story. In that book, she was depicted as "a haughty flame-haired woman in red robes", with "six-inch razor-sharp nails painted blood red". Scintilla did have long, sharp nails, but she was actually short and dumpy. (PROSE: Shada). The book was read to The Doctor as a child and was one of the primary reason for wanting to explore time and space.
Scintilla was a " natural born " Time Lord, meaning that it was both harder to kill her and harder to cause her to regenerate.
