Search for 'Chantir' on Amazon
Chantir was a male Malmooth who was briefly the companion of the Eighth Doctor. Like Chantho who was Professor Yana/the Master's companion in the televised episode, "Utopia", Chantir opens every statement with the first syllable of his name, "Chan", and ends with the last syllable, "Tir".
He and the Doctor were together for approximately 16 solid days. They broke out of prison together, whereupon the Doctor offered him a chance to travel in the TARDIS. Chantir refused, citing nearby friends who could take him off the planet on which they'd been imprisoned.
Chantir's status as "companion" is debatable, but it is derived from the Tenth Doctor's reflection on the nature of "companiondom" while he was in his eighth life. In other words, because the Tenth Doctor remembers Chantir as a companion, he is one—despite the fact that he refused to continue adventuring with the Doctor.
