Zealous and humourless, Maxil was a Time Lord commander of Gallifreyan Chancellery Guard and castellan of the High Council.

Biography[]

Like all Time Lords, Maxil 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, Maxil was inspired by what he saw in the Schism. (PROSE: A Brief History of Time Lords)

Maxil became Commander of the Chancellery Guard. During this time, he stunned the Fifth Doctor with a staser blast and confined him in a cell under the Capitol to await the judgement of President Borusa and the High Council. He also planted a listening device in the Doctor's TARDIS on the orders of Castellan Jerricho. (TV: Arc of Infinity)

Promoted to Castellan, Maxil regularly trained Castellan Wynter. (AUDIO: Lies) Inquisitor Prime Darkel contacted him to escort her into the Vaults so that she could speak with her advisor (AUDIO: Imperiatrix) and, during the Gallifreyan Civil War, he sided with Pandora over Romana. Afterwards, he was demoted to Commander. (AUDIO: Appropriation)

After the Fifth Doctor's regeneration, his successor took on Maxil's appearance. (TV: The Caves of Androzani) The Sixth Doctor once mentioned the resemblance to Peri Brown. (AUDIO: Prime Winner)
