Linx of the Jingo clan was a Sontaran Commander in the Fifth Sontaran Army Space Fleet.

Biography Edit

In the 13th century, (TV: The Sontaran Experiment) Linx was forced to make an emergency landing on Earth while on reconnaissance when his ship was attacked by a squadron of Rutan fighters. Linx allied himself with Irongron, who offered him shelter in exchange for advanced weaponry which would change history.

Linx abducted scientists from the 20th century to help him repair his ship. He went with Irongron to watch the attack upon Edward of Wessex for his own amusement.

Linx was intolerant of any interruptions from Irongron, who pestered him for weaponry. Irongron also regularly mocked the Sontaran, making Linx threaten him in return. Linx did eventually supply Irongron with the guns he so desired. After a fist fight with the Third Doctor, Linx tried to launch his ship, but he died when Hal the Archer shot an arrow in his probic vent, and his ship exploded upon launch. (TV: The Time Warrior)

After meeting Styre, another member of the Sontaran race, Sarah Jane Smith briefly thought he was the same person, though she herself said that was impossible as she had seen Linx's ship blow up. Styre explained that as Sontarans are clones, he and Linx were identical. (TV: The Sontaran Experiment)

Legacy Edit

Sarah Jane thought of Linx as well as Styre during her confrontation with Commander Kaagh. (PROSE: The Last Sontaran)

Personality Edit

Linx was an extremely intelligent Sontaran and was a possessor of several advanced forms of technology. He was also a very sophisticated and powerful example of his species, and honourably declared the Earth as property of the Sontaran empire. Linx was extremely cynical, and freely admitted how the human face looked displeasing and ugly to him. Like many of his race, he deemed humans as insolent primitives, and admitted that he would have killed Irongron if he hadn't needed the man's help. (TV: The Time Warrior)

Skills and equipment Edit

Linx's vehicle was a standard-issue Sontaran space pod. He possessed a hand-held device that could hypnotise other life forms, disarm an opponent or destroy their weaponry completely. Also, Linx carried a device that could enable him to translate his voice to any language that existed. (TV: The Time Warrior)
