Pamela Cutler was a scientist. She was the daughter of General Cutler, whom the First Doctor had encountered when facing the Cybermen at Snowcap in December 1986. Furthermore, she was the sister of Zeus V pilot Terry Cutler, who became a born-again Christian following his near fatal space mission and founded an anti-terrorist Christian organisation called the Freedom Foundation.
After her father's death, she joined the army. By 2006, she had reached the rank of general, and was the only female general in the United States armed forces. Cutler was in charge of Project FLIPback. (PROSE: Iceberg)
