Mihal was the king of Zalezna.
When Mihal was a child, he and Lycon fled from Mihal's uncle Kalem, who had killed King Loran. After being caught by his uncle and his men, they were saved by the Eighth Doctor, who used his sonic screwdriver to disarm the soldiers. Mihal was then made king of Zalezna. Mihal was unsure about ruling, however, so the Doctor told him stories to build up his confidence. (PROSE: From Little Acorns)
