Search for 'Yaga' on Amazon
Over-mother of the Gantac, in charge of finding the great treasure known as the Zantar Wrouth. Somehow, though, Yaga was confused as to the location of this treasure. Believing the treasure on Earth, Yaga directed her minions to round up all humans to interview them for information about the Zantar Wrouth.
When the Seventh Doctor pointed out that the Wrouth was in fact a planet-sized gem on the other side of the galaxy, Yaga did not simply release Earth and travel about her way. Instead, she tried to cover her humiliation by simply ordering the total destruction of the Earth.
However, she was brought down by the Seventh Doctor's temporary companion. Leapy, the unkempt vagrant, got close to Yaga, and his fleas leapt, unseen, from his body to hers. Unfamiliar with the insects, Yaga thought it the precursor to an "invisible" alien invasion. She routinely orders her guards to shoot to kill. Their weapons lock onto the fleas, and in the process of killing the fleas, destroy Yaga as well.
