KINDA Peaceful, telepathic natives of Deva Loka who shared a gestalt-like society. Their attempts to get the members of the Earth Expedition Force to mentally merge with them unbalanced the Earthmen's minds. The Mara possessed one of them, Aris, and tried to create chaos by inciting the Kinda to attack the Earthmen's Dome. The Mara was eventually banished by the Fifth Doctor. The Kinda's Jhana Box helped restore Commander Sanders' sanity. Thanks to Sanders' desire to protect the Kinda, Deva Loka was eventually reclassified as unsuitable for colonization (5Y).
MARA, THE Evil entity which was the sum of the evil within the Manussans' minds. It was absorbed, reflected and given independent life by the Great Crystal. The Mara manifested itself in the form of a snake. It led the Sumaran Empire. Three hundred years after its creation, thanks to the magic of the Snakedancers, it was banished by the Manussans into a dark dimension of the collective mind. It was somehow drawn to the telepathic Kinda of Deva Loka, but only found a passage back into the real world when it possessed Tegan. Then, it took over the young Kinda, Aris, and sought to plunge Deva Loka into chaos by inciting the Kinda to attack the Dome of an Earth Expedition Force, which would have prompted the insane Hindle to start a massive explosion. The Fifth Doctor trapped the Mara inside a circle of mirrors, and banished it once more (5Y)
