GREAT ONE Title used by Aukon to refer to the Great Vampire (5P).

GREAT VAMPIRE Leader of the alien vampires who were destroyed by the Time Lords. Wounded and almost dying, he fled into E-Space, where he still had the strength to mentally lure the Earth ship Hydrax. He offered its three officers, Aukon, Zargo and Camilla, vampiric immortality if they served him. They fed him with the blood of the human colonists and their descendents for a thousand years, planning for the Time of Arising, when he would swarm back into normal space. The Great Vampire's plans were thwarted by the Fourth Doctor, who used one of the Hydrax scout ships like a stake to kill him (5P).
