Early life Edit
Like all Time Lords, Azmael was taken from his family at the age of eight for the selection process in the Drylands. Staring into the Untempered Schism as part of a Time Lord initiation rite, Azmael reacted by running away from what he saw in the Schism. (PROSE: A Brief History of Time Lords)
Azmael was a tutor for the First Doctor at the Prydonian Academy. The Sixth Doctor considered him as the best one he ever had. (TV: The Twin Dilemma) They both held a great respect for one another. Azmael was present when the Doctor was expelled from the Academy. He was Coordinator at this time. (PROSE: Divided Loyalties)
At some point during the Doctor's fourth incarnation, the Doctor and Azmael had an encounter in which Azmael drank so much the Doctor had to throw him into a fountain to sober him up. (TV: The Twin Dilemma)
Thirteenth Azmael Edit
When the villainous Mestor, who commanded the Gastropods, came to power on Jaconda, he used a telepathic link with Azmael to dominate his mind. Mestor forced Azmael, who used the name Professor Edgeworth, to kidnap the two young genius identical twins Romulus and Remus Sylvest. By this time, Azmael had reached the end of his regeneration cycle.
Recently regenerated himself, the Sixth Doctor and Peri came to Titan III. There they saw the wreckage of a ship and rescued Lieutenant Hugo Lang. While exploring some tunnels on the asteroid, Peri and the Doctor were captured and taken to meet Azmael. The Doctor recognised Azmael as a friend from their homeworld of Gallifrey. Co-operating with Mestor to save his people, Azmael abandoned the Doctor and Peri, letting them be taken captive. However, when the Doctor and Peri were able to follow him to Jaconda. After being attacked by the Doctor due to post regeneration trauma, Azmael sided with the Doctor when his observations revealed Mestor's true plan to trigger a solar eruption that would destroy Jaconda and send Mestor's eggs out across the universe. When Mestor took possession of Azmael's body and the Doctor destroyed Mestor's real body, Azmael, with Mestor's consciousness within him, forced himself to die by attempting to regenerate. Since Amzael had already used all twelve of his regenerations, initiating a thirteenth regeneration resulted in both his and Mestor's deaths, which Mestor was unprepared for. (TV: The Twin Dilemma)
