Roslyn Sarah Forrester (usually known as Roslyn Inyathi Forrester or just Roz Forrester) was an Adjudicator-turned-companion of the Seventh Doctor.

Biography Edit

Roz was born in 2935 to an aristocratic family. With her Adjudicator partner Chris Cwej, Roz was on the police force of 30th century Earth, at that time divided into the Overcity and the Undercity. (PROSE: Original Sin)

Her clan name was Inyathi, which was iXhosa for buffalo. (PROSE: The Also People)

Roslyn was a rebellious child. She ran away from her father's Palace on Io several times before she finally left for good - when she joined the Guild of Adjudicators. Her father sent bodyguards to protect her while she was an Adjudicator, but she kept arresting them for loitering and threw them in jail. After she did this several times, her father finally withdrew them. (PROSE: Dependence Day)

Life as an Adjudicator Edit

Konstantine was Roz' Adjudicator trainer, (PROSE: The Also People, The Death of Art) with Roz serving as his squire for some time. (PROSE: GodEngine) Roz once received punishment detail from Konstantine for a minor dress code violation, resulting in her spending three boring months observing the mystic con Rhan-Te-Goth. Rox determined that Goth was using hypnosis to distract his audience while two telepath assistants scanned their minds for credit-chip information and arrested him for that as well for accessing banned literature by Ludwig Prinn, Friedrich Wilhelm von Junzt, and H. P. Lovecraft. This incident prompted Roz to read Lovecraft texts in the Adjudicators' Index Pugatum. (PROSE: The Death of Art)

Roz graduated as an Adjudicator in 2955 on Ponten IV. (PROSE: GodEngine) For fifteen years, she served as squire to Adjudicator Fenn Martle. They were lovers for most of that time. (PROSE: Original Sin)

When Roz was twenty, she and Fenn Martle investigated the use of a hypnoleptic drug derived from an extract of the human pituitary gland amongst the Fnarok population of the Overcities. (PROSE: Oblivion)

One time, Rox and Martle were traffic patrolling when they noticed a man throwing his pet ditz off a walkway. Roz confronted the man, but he denied killing the animal. Roz knew that she had no evidence to convict the man on, so she asked for his identification and ate it after he gave it to her. The man was thus fined for not having an ident and again for perjury. (PROSE: Original Sin)

Roz could speak some Swahili and Xhosa. (PROSE: The Also People)
