History: A Dreilyn "heat vampire," Olla was a servant to Skaroux, a Vachysian warlord and enforcer for the Galactic Federation. For undisclosed reasons, she eventually stole from him and went on the run. Eventually she ended up on the resort planet A-Lux, but soon after her arrival there renegade Ice Warriors seized control of the planet, intending to turn it into a new homeworld for their species. They transformed the planet into a frozen wasteland, but before the damage became permanent the time-travelling Doctor arrived. Olla assisted the Doctor and his companion, the Whifferdill Frobisher, in stopping the Ice Warriors and restoring A-Lux. When Frobisher decided to stay behind, the Doctor, unaware of her criminal past, agreed to let Olla take his place on the Doctor's TARDIS. However, before they could travel any real distance, Skaroux intercepted their vessel; upon learning of Olla's crimes, the Doctor agreed to let her be taken into custody on the guarantee that she would get a fair trial.
